Recently migrated our company's websites and backups to Turnkey and we couldn't be happier. We purchased two of their best value servers because they were faster and cheaper than our old host. They made the move painless and were very professional.

was looking for a new host for a few sites of mine.

talked to their online chat (their online chat is outsourced and they did not know every answer)

everything seemed okay, I ordered a small cloud vps plan to host a single s...Read Moreite

their auto creation did not work with my account, and the online tech support had no access to fix it, so they created a ticket

eventually the issue was fixed, and then they all of a sudden canceled my account because I did not pass their validation

so were not able to tell me why I did not pass the customer validation, they said they researched me and found that I was not a good fit

sounds kind of scary, i wonder if they found my facebook or something, anyways i hope that its not due to my race

anyways they refunded the money, the whole experience was a waste of a day

I do not recommend this company at all, too many secrets. I do not think this is a real company.

TurnKey Internet,
Greetings.

We appreciate the frank comments and feedback, and while it does pain us to hear we may have fallen short of expectations, it is very helpful so that we can improve on areas to ensure our goals of providing the abso...Read Morelute best quality network, online service, and customer experience.

Your order was flagged by our system due to the fact that your devices's IP address was listed as over 2000 miles away from the billing address you provided during signup. Because of this, we requested further verification or offered a full refund.

Verifying new client orders is a necessary and important step in protecting you and our other valued clients from possible threats on the internet like hackers, spammers, and other bad actors.

I am very sorry that it caused you such a poor experience with our company - It is not our intention to frustrate any client during the onboarding process. I did ensure that you had a prompt refund issued (Reference/Transaction # 6SW6071726005684P).

Thank you for the detailed comments and feedback - we wish you continued success in your online endeavors.

It is strange how they just take your money and give you nothing

I bought a VPS with them for 1 year on Black friday. The two months was ok. I use the VPS to sync my files between dropbox and Google drive. The sycing was going ok until I needed to sync 35GB. I started the sync process at night ...Read Moreand wake up in the morning with them shutting down the server because it is reading and writing to the hard disk at the same time. Which is according to their support is using more than it is assigned to the VPS.

I had the same server with OVH with same specification and same setup and I never heard from them about the hard disks ( I have been using OVh servers for two years now ).

When I said ok, I will cancel the server and please refund me the 10 months left ( I already paid for 12 and used 2 ), they said that they do not prorate and thy can't refund me anything since the first 30 days have passed.

I really don't care about the money or their crappy servers but I am amazed how they take the money and feel ok about giving nothing in return.

Zero understanding on customer requirements

Never commit for a long term plan with this service provider else you will be stuck with it and there is absolutely no refund or change of plan possible even if the current plan does not meet your requirement. As I understand you ...Read Morewill have one month to review prior to cancelling your plan. In my case, the first month, I had no issues. I started to have issue after 2nd month. I tried to explain my concerns with the Support / Sales however they send you long list of policies and procedures which in short tells you that you will have to live with the service whether is meets your needs or don't. They do provide good specs when comparing with other service providers however their VPS are not designed for MT4 traders. The minute you run 3 instances of MT4 on a 4GB/ 4 CPU plan it will stop responding. I have VPS server from other providers with 2 GB / 2 CPU and can run 6 instances of MT4 without any issue.

I asked them to kindly refund my pending months as it does not meet my requirement however they declined the request. On black friday they had interesting option of dedicated server which I asked if I could swap my current vps to the dedicated server and pay the difference. Below response from the Sales:

"Greetings, there is no direct upgrade path possible from 1 package to that, but you are welcome to purchase a new package if it better fits your needs to expand / grow as you see fit."

I finally give up on them and no longer want a refund and any service they offer.

Hi guys, I inform you about my experience with them. I order a VPS from them and paid 3.99 USD for that. They accept the payment and deliver the service 14 hours later, where their sales told me it instant deploy. They send me ssh...Read More access but that is not connecting the next 12 hours. They didn't reply ticket just close if you open a support ticket, the reason is they are very busy in Black Friday sale.

5 days later they suspend my service. Because I do not verify my account, requirement 1. Credit cards front and back image. 2. passport or Driving and also another one.

When I told them why I give you full information of my cards they told me this is the policy, then ask why you suspend my paid service they told me you do not submit your card details. Where is my government and Bank says don't share the CVV number.

They can stale your money, don't trust them and they can delete your paid service. Just wasting my time with them. DON'T buy anything from them....

The customer service goes out of its way to help you and they answer questions very quickly. My dedicated server is fast (currently using for plex and video/media) and they have a 100% uptime! I would definitely recommend Turnkey to anyone.

Per our Terms of Service, you exceeded our Fair Usage policy, which you can find on our website here: https://www.turnkeyinternet.net/policies/

We offered to unsuspend your account as long as you did not exceed the usage policy, as well as offered you a pro-rated refund for the remaining 6 months of your prepaid plan that you paid for in 2015.

I'm very sorry for your frustration on this matter. We tried to do everything we could to get this resolved for you. I'm truly sorry you did not give us the opportunity to do so.

We wish you continued success in your online endeavors.

Uptime & Reliability

Stable Hosting

The hosting with this company is very stable. From what I can tell people are very happy with the stability of this hosting provider and they even have a 100% uptime guarantee for their network.  This is likely because they use such high quality hardware (including SSDs) so there won't be any outages caused by that. In addition, they are housed in a very nice data center that has redundant power and network connections.

Features

Good Quality Hosting Features

As you look through the hosting options they offer you will see that there are some nice features included.  You can opt for either Linux or Windows, even for their shared hosting solution, which is nice.  They do only offer two hosting packages for each OS with shared hosting, so that is a little disappointing.  The two options, however, are both pretty nice. First, they have solid state drive storage, so that will help to ensure fast response times.  They also allow unlimited disk space and bandwidth.

If you want a VPS, this company does offer those as well.  This is a newer service, but they seem to have hit the ground running in this area too.  The features are right in line with what you would expect to see with most other hosting providers, so that is very nice.  There are three options when it comes to their VPS solutions. It is good to note that their VPS solutions are cloud based, and on some areas are listed as cloud hosting.

Finally, their dedicated servers you can choose from either their normal dedicated servers, which are mid-level servers or their overstock servers, which are a bit older but still nice.  As you would expect, the overstock servers come at a good discount.

Support

Nice Support & More

The technical support with this company is quite good.  They can provide you with high quality assistance for just about any type of issue you may be having.  They are available 24/7 via a ticketing system or live chat or phone.  In addition they offer a number of nice tutorials to help you get up to speed and learn more about how to properly manage a website on their hosting.

Pricing

Reasonable Pricing

The pricing with this company is pretty reasonable.  The one thing that many people won't like is that they really push you into longer term agreements.  For example, to get the advertised prices for shared hosting you need to pre-pay for three years.  This is a very long time and while most hosting companies offer discounts for 1+ year of pre-payment, this is taking it a little far.  They do, however, allow month to month payments if you choose that option.

One thing to mention is that their overstock servers are very inexpensive.  They change based on availability, but right now you can get a dedicated server with 4 CPU cores and 8 gigs of RAM for just $29 per month.  This is a great deal.

Summary

Overall Nice Hosting Option

This is a very nice hosting company that will be able to meet the needs of most people.  You do need to watch your payment options and look around for the best package for the price, but with a little work up front you can get a high quality hosting solution at a great price.

Pros:

  • Great Hardware
  • 100% Network Uptime Guarantee

Cons:

  • Must Look Around for the Right Package
