Does What It Says
Baruch Ben-David,
8.8
I was first attracted by the simple pricing scheme, and the fact that they let you pay per month. Setting up my account was simple. Starting my node was as easy as selecting a distribution to run. I also liked the fact tha... More t if I didn't find the node adequate, I could cancel within seven days and get a refund. In fact, if memory serves, they didn't deduct the fee until the seven days had elapsed (don't quote me on that; I could be wrong).
I had a question early on, and requested information. They got back to me within a short time, a matter of a few hours or so. They were courteous and effective.
I am well pleased with linode.com, and would definitely recommend it to my friends, if they needed a VPS.

Superb Hosting
John Wigham,

I've been with Chemicloud for nearly three years and have always been pleased with their service during this time. To anybody who'll listen, I've always said that Chemicloud is the best host I've used in the last 20 years. Th... More e reason I say this is mostly because of their customer support. I've broken several sites on this host and they invariably have them repaired and working again within an hour. A far cry from many hosts I've used in the past. Superb support. Less

Serious rubbish
Robert Hill,

Why would you use a host with such a limited administrative options? Who does it nowadays? Its like a little kids sandbox hosting, where if something goes wrong, you don't even have means of figuring out, what happened. Utter... More and total S - H - I - T.
And by the way. I would have given them 1 out of 10, but this side does not allow less than 2.

Be Careful
Hammad Khan,

I was honestly planning to sign up for Established Reseller Plan until i stumbled upon the pricing page. I must say that support was good and even waited for 15 mins since i had an urgent phone call to attend.
Anyways, long ... More story short and here is the break down of events.
- So when I moved to buy now page, i was a bit shocked looking at the pricing (screenshot attached)
-- What they advertised is $17.49 per month so according to this it should be $209.88 for 12 months but they are asking for 9.40
- When i asked the support staff, he told me that this is what it is and you can pay monthly and remain on $17.49
-- Then when i asked him that this would not be true because your terms on pricing say something different (Link to screenshot https://ibb.co/HGP9jg5)
-- Response was sorry that we are unable to meet in the middle way and the chat closed
Seriously they should be ranked the lowest when it comes to reseller hosting and what a disappointment.
