Aruba is the best and cheapest cloud VPS provider
Igor Stankiewicz,

Aruba is the best and cheapest cloud VPS provider.
Fast servers, free trial, good support - it's better than other companies.
Nothing more, nothing less.

Supersite Professional: Servizio annuale da ripagare dopo 3 mesi secondo Aruba !!!
Stefano Di Biagio,
2.0
Esperienza pessima !!! Avevo già un dominio in hosting presso Aruba da diversi anni. A Luglio 2022 ho acquistato il servizio Supersite Professional per costruire il sito da abbinare al suddetto dominio al prezzo di 120€/anno ... More IVA inclusa. Ad Ottobre 2022 - alla scadenza per il rinnovo del dominio - mi si chiedeva di ripagare nuovamente Supersite Professional con altri 120€. Dal carrello di pagamento ho ovviamente deflaggato Supersite pensando fosse un errore. Il giorno dopo, invece, ho visto con aberrante stupore che il mio sito era stato messo out. Ho chiesto allora immediate spiegazioni in assistenza, prima in forma scritta (...ma con risposte che mi rimandavano ad altri percorsi da seguire che non sono riuscito a trovare) poi via telefono (...dopo vari tentativi di attese estenuanti e cadute di linea) per arrivare infine a sentirmi dire che la politica aziendale era quella di ripagare tutto al rinnovo di dominio ! Sono davvero allibito nel vedere come un'azienda importante di tipo Aruba possa ricorrere a simili poveri stratagemmi per racimolare qualche euro in più senza la volontà di trovare alcuna soluzione con clienti di vecchia data. GRANDE DELUSIONE E SUBITO VIA DA ARUBA ! Less
Questionable service and support
Robert Liroff,

Service is friendly, but overall site support is definitely mixed - not sure if the long-term price is worth it.
I am concerned that I was not alert to a feature offering me SSL layer protection for my site, the absence of wh... More ich may have steered away potential clients. I only found out today, upon calling for a break in my site's functioning today, and inquiring about such protection, that it had been offered in my plan for a while but never turned on!
A real problem in communication with your customers. It was only due to the extremely helpful support person whom I contacted today that I satisfactorily resolved the two issues troubling my site.
