Great product with weird staffs and account managers

We tried their dedicated servers for around 2 weeks. They are cheaper and have a bandwidth close to 2gbps(promised 3gbps, still good)
But we faced multiple issues from their support/sales. They throttled the bandwidth of our ... More live servers claiming we crossed the bandwidth limit(their website say they will charge extra for additional bandwidth which is normal, but throttling live server without any notice is unheard. )
We got a DMCA notice and server is down after one hour(that is reponse time given to take action is one hour).
I think CherryServers can do great if they hire people with industry experience. Their engineering and pricing is already good. Untill that never use them in production.

One DMCA complaint and they'll ban your entire account no matter how many domains are hosted on it.
They c... More laimed one of my websites offers illegal services, but they didn't mention which one, which was absolutely a false claim. It was a DMCA notification from Corsearch that made them ban my entire account of 30+ domains without any notification and a "Thanks!" at the end of the email! Less
