WOW, I just got done reading this thread
If this company/McHost had a storefront I could see the picketers outside with flags saying "Give us our money back and stop trying to host because you can't"
WHT is a world renowned site for people searching for hosting and selling hosting and "theVPSguy" brand should be banished.
Can someone fill me in. How much downtime (before 100% functionality) was there. If over 3 days then that's major. No 15 year old should ever run a company. I would never let a 15 year old work at my company nevermind let them run it.
That is some ******** right there

Since when was thevpsguy 100% owned and run by me, ian? As stated earlier, there were multiple people running thevpsguy, and I did sales and some support.

You state in your signature you are the owner and not just some "sales and support" guy

I started my job as a datacenter technician when I was 15. I was mature and have made a few small mistakes along the way, but nothing severe. That is a real jerk statement to make, there are certain 15 year olds that are capable of being professional.

I am a licensed arborists. I cut down trees most of them right next to houses, garages, neighbors homes, etc.... Notice my post count?? lol
I should have specified if I was doing work where someones house or life wasn't at stake I'd have no problem hiring a 15 year old.
I heard justedge is one of the most reliable Ded. Server hosts on the WWW. I did have a small hosting company, actually still do it's mainly local companies that I host, my own sites, etc... I don't advertise my company nor do I earn a livable income off of it, but I was 15-16 when I got my first linux shell. I can't rag on the kid and your statement is true.
My apologies to you Mr. Ian Weisberger. I jumped on the band wagon of insults to you and I really am sorry. I hope this works out for you and you can bounce back. Good luck

You were working alone and probably still are when this happened. You told me straight up, stop making up lies.

it's almost 10 days. and i don't think a good provider should let
his services to be down that long. finding an alternative way for
his clients should be his main priorities even if that takes $$$$.
We will be giving one month free to all clients as part of our SLA.
how can you say this when your downtime is almost half a month.
which everybody else has already paid for. of course you should,
as a matter of fact, there are probably clients of VPS owners who's
demanding at least 2 months of compensation.
i apologize for this. just getting frustrating as not even a
single Advisory email was sent out.

well he tried to up our vps but looks half-baked.
got several email notif of errors.
tried to restart but results show errors.
been trying to get hold of ian on MSN after our talk but failed.
times like this, he should be available most of the time.
just my thought. i am just voicing up also those words from my
frustrated clients.

just to give an update. others who might be waiting, at least, you
would know where you stand at this point.
3 days ago, he discussed and told us that server is up and running.
whm was already accessible; however, "named" is still showing failure.
we did what we had to do within our "powers".
as this is related to cpanel, as advised, he asked us to force-reboot
as the last resort (which of course, we already have done before).
although he is expected to handover the server in good and running
condition, he did not.
as our tech has no choice but to do force-reboot, we did; as he also insisted.
and all hell broke loose. server went dead and ian was gone again for 3 days.
i sure hope he can explain this to us as well as to those who have
been promised to have the server up and running over the weekend.
we emailed and no reply.
further, hyperVM is still down.

thanks for the tip.
lesson learned from bad experience, i guess.
now its' the 19th day of server downtime.
that 1 month free is surely not applicable
for such BAD service.
