Their hosting and customer service used to be good but is very poor now. Over two hour on-hold time.

I have been a customer since 2014. Their customer service standards are poor at best. Their on-hold time is poor at best with hold times of two hours. Today was worse - after holding for 1:58 mins for a rep to pick up, he ... More talked for 3 mins then went away. Fifteen mins later it shows we are still on the phone but he is no where to be found. VERY POOR!!!! Less
RUNNING VPS WITH WORST INTERNET SPEED
Rakesh S,

I get to know about this company from search engine, their sales chat response was immediate and confirmed server locations of Mumbai with 100 Mbps speed.
On Subscribing for their premium plan (8 Gb, 4 Core, 80 Gb SSD) Window... More s Server 2016 VPS, I was hardly able to manage the VPS.
A single round trip from Mumbai to their VPS was taking up to 10 seconds which was really beyond imaginations. When I check speed with speedtest, I was shocked that speed I was getting was hardly 0.6 Mbps. Screen shots are attached herewith.
After reaching their support and spending a lot of time, they were saying that this is the normal speed. I was promised for 100Mbps and given 0.6Mbps and this is normal for them.
I cannot continue with this speed so I asked for refund very politely which was denied by saying that there is no refund policy.
I hardly used VPS for few hours and that too just troubleshooting speed thing. They eat-up 2600/- INR for nothing. If they still deny for refund, will raise chargeback and also file a consumer complaint in this regards.
Loosing 2600/- is not that painful but loosing trust on these kind of frauds is really a matter of pain. It seems they are running Hosting from their home by running home internet with speed and reliability issues.
BE AWARE, DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO THEIR SERVICES, YOU WON’T FIND BIG CHEATERS THEN THEM.
