I am impressed with how much the tech support of Hostarmada has helped me in setting up my ecom site. I will recommend this to anyone who needs to host a website.

False advertising
Rowan Weston-Moore,
5.2
1. False DDoS protection, you guys claimed it was due to my software crashing the VPS on a DDoS attack, my new host which I installed everything the same on it and sure enough after a while of us announcing we have a new host... More we got DDoSed, not only did the service not go down but I got an automatic email notification.
2. False 1gb port, this new host also claimed to have a 1gb port, not only did if have super fast files transfer (unlike you guys) when connecting to Minecraft servers it was able to ping the numeric IP instantly unlike you guys where it took several seconds to ping
3. Expensive pricing, when I first found you I thought you where the cheapest but this company that I moved to DONT have shared cores and have 10 cores dedicated to me with 50gb ram and 1tb SSD, they have better specs than you as well,
4. When my VPS got compromised and BW filled up you charged me 10 EUR for an extra 1tb of BW, which is the same price as the actual VPS, it's not as if you gave me 16gb of ram and 160gb SSD you just gave me bandwidth
Yes I did a previous review and that was the day after I purchased it

I think their customer care is sleeping. I have purchased dedicated web server. It is been second day, the site is stopped working and it is a high traffic site.
"Hostadvice: After your recommendation from your end. I purcha... More sed, but now i feel very bad"
They simply telling, we update you in tickets. To get a reply i am waiting for more than 5 hours. Still my site is in not working.
