If anyone ever wants to know the truth and facts about AWS Customer Supports Vs GoDaddy, Hostway, Hosting Source, Google, Apple READ THIS:
7 years now dealing with AWS I cannot explain how many times they have gone beyond wha... More t their rules and Regs and policies are to HELP, SUPPORT and maintain whatever it takes for AWS to serve and keep us as a client.
They are the NUMBER 1 Company and they already WON Best Customer Support globally as far as I am concerned

Shady web host.
Chester Waters,

Besides excessive annual price hikes they try to do tricky stuff. On this renewal they are attempting to charge by invoice the 1 year renewal price of $15.77/mo instead of $14.45/mo. They sent me an invoice for $378.58 for ... More a 2 year renewal of HostPro. They are so greedy that they intentionally overcharge. Unbelievable! Less
Not able to use the instances

This is frustrating when I added a new user, then su newuser, couldn't go back to root by all means. It says not in sudoers afterwards. I've no root password, neither able to login from putty, it said login as ubuntu which re... More jected key, but i can login as newuser into newuser account. I sent 3 emails to support, no response. Hope I can do something here since my website is down for days. Their instances are retarded, support are horrible for simple problems such as refusing public key when login as ubuntu while I was still able to use root, their chat support won't do anything to help!
