Дедики за неплохую цену
Алексей Нечаев,

Часто беру здесь дедики для разных нужд, пока никаких проблем не возникало. Удобная панелька, быстрая настройка, тех.поддержка поможет, если налажаешь
I am fully satisfied
Silvano Berardi,

Your sites will be in good hands, dudes. Personally, I'm a fully satisfied Hostwinds customer. They are rock. High 99% uptime and very fast servers. I developed my Wordpress Website with optimum speed using the available soft... More aculous addon in the Cpanel. Well done! Less

Horrible Filipino Customer Service
Jonathan Smith,
4.8
You'll wait half an hour for a live person, and it's always a filipina. The audio quality with customer service will be poor. They cannot understand American English. Their sparse website after you log into your account is on... More ly half functional; therefore, you must deal with the filipino customer service.
Why was my credit card charged?
Answer: "because you cannot do AutoPay."
WTF? I'm not asking about AutoPay.
Can I get receipts for the payments that I've already made?
Answer: "we can only give you a confirmation number."
WTF. I need some kind of document for tax deduction purposes. Why can't your system just email an acknowledgement each time my credit card gets charged? I just need date, amount, my name, your company name, service provided.
Answer: [momentary silence] "what is your question again? we only provide prepaid service so there's no tax."
Are you, Selectel, a Philippines-only company? Why can't you understand common record keeping in standard business practice?
Answer: "no, we're in Fremont, Nebraska [shameless lie] but your special request for receipt will be presented to my higher management for consideration."
Nobody else has ever asked for a receipt before?
Answer: [momentary silence] "I'm sorry, can you repeat the question?"

Nickle and Diming
Brian W,
3.6
I signed up for $10.99 per month because of the good reviews. My first month was discounted 25%. Then I notice that they are charging me $3 extra per month just to have backups. That is just plain nickle and diming. BACKUP SHOULD BE INCLUDED!
