PhotonVPS Review: Great customer service & reliable
IP of site: 22.214.171.124
As a first time user of a VPS, I would have to give lots of thanks and support to the PhotonVPS team. They provided me with very helpful solutions and answers to all of my questions for a first time user.
After a few days of playing around on SSH and tips the support team provided, I was able to control and understand how a VPS system works. In addition, they were able to help me with some general PCI compliance issues I found with my scanner. Great customer service and support!
The price of Beam 1 is very reasonable and just a few dollars more than shared hosting. Now I have so much more control of my web server and confidence being supported by this reliable young company.
Additionally, I did not purchase the cPanel. With my general knowledge of Linux and help from the support team, I was able to install only what I wanted to meet my PCI compliance.
Overall, I would recommend PhotonVPS to experienced and new VPS users.

My VPS is still going strong. They recently had a power upgrade installation and notified me ahead of time. It went smoothly and my server was back up quickly. I did have a small issue with a VPS service that needed to be started again which the support helped me take care of right away. Saved me a lot of trouble and time.
A few months have past since I signed up with photonvps.com .
I have not experienced many problems and they are informative when upgrades or changes will be made to the servers. I've been reconstructing my site I have with them under a new domain name: thatshitisripe.com . Also, I like that they have an affiliate program so if you are in need of a low cost reliable host, check them out for yourself.
my first impression is "server specs" and after the setup, i have many unexpected problems with servers, and now i decide to transfer my openvz to xen,because i see the virtualization design and have a lot of testimony, but what happen to photonvps, some of my services are not running and some softwares are not running. and most of all i have'nt recieve an answers to my tickets.

I havent had many problems maybe because i may not use the vps as extensive as others but from all my learning and experimenting as a vps unmanaged newbie, its been good. So i definitely cant speak for those that require more.
