Fast and solid VPS

We have never had any downtime while using their services, and the pricing for the managed server packages is fair and transparent. My current two VPSs at ChemiCloud have been extremely fast, reliable, and stable.

Very Poor Support
John Irvine,
4.0
Recently my client and I both lost our email services on a phurix host. It was reported to normal support and through their 'urgent' support route but their response was nothing, not even an acknowledgement. 10 days later and... More many emails from us and still no response.
I was on the basic personal option but my client was on small business level option and loss of emails was a serious issue for them so we had no choice but to move to another host. I changed our MX records to point to the new host and got our email functionality back instantly, then I redirect our nameservers. This issue was not the only time we've had poor support so moving hosts had already been discussed; this was the final straw though.
The new host is fastcomet.com and actually worked out cheaper than phurix as we're combining our domains onto the one host, but price is not the main concern, it's the support and so far it has been very good from fastcomet, with a support ticket and online chat options available - something that phurix used to have but dispensed with several years ago unfortunately.
Also their claimed 100% reliability is only on the network connectivity - it doesn't include server downtime!
There may be a solid reason for their total lack of support but as we don't know what this is we didn't have much choice; they've hosted several domains for me for over 10 years but loyalty only goes so far, bye bye phurix.

Be Careful

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.
