|Latest negative review||
We bought in x3host.com Reseller Hosting the cheapest option. The cheapest, because we cautiously approached their offer.
And then it was just a joke on their part:
We ordered locations: Germany and your server is:
69.... More 12.67.100 United States California Los Angeles QuadraNet Enterprises LLC
There is no location on www.quadranet.com Germany is only Amsterdam in Europe www.quadranet.com
cPanel TRIAL LICENSE: This copy is a trial version and will expire at the end of the trial term. You will need to upgrade to a paid copy to continue using the software after that term.???????
This license will end in 15 days.
Listen, he'll write again. If you can not process your order, please send a refund to PayPal.
Why waste time and get nervous.
I changed DNS already yesterday:
The registration domain (4concept.xyz) is just an address to log in with. Resseler's account will be a domain about tourism along with subdomains in Worpdress.
And now? on the white label shows:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator at webmaster@xxxxxx to inform them of the time this error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.
Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
We already send an email with the information
Any way i'll copy it here for you,

The second day passes and I still do not have the data to login to cPanel. How should I set up a domain?
If you can not process our order, please send money back to Paypal.I do not have time for fun.

Is this a scam? I have your service address from: hostadvice.com/hosting-company/x3host-com-reviews/,
I am still waiting 4 hours!
It's been some time since the payment, and surely the money is on your PayPal. When can I expect to log in to my Reseller account?
We have now written to them so that they will return the money. But we will probably report the issue on Paypal, because we doubt that they will return the money.
Zero contact from their site. Less
I've moved from Shared hosting to Managed Linux VPS
The support team is sucks, i felt that I'm an auditor or QA on their jobs
They don't validate the requests.
For example, I've asked to only allow access to specific ports to... More only 1 country,
so all they did is added the country 2 letters in the CSF config page and added allowed ports to this country
and they didn't remove the ports from TCP_IN section , it means there's no restrictions here, all they did is like confirming allowing my country !!
so this ticket toke 6 hours, and ended up sending them the instructions how to do it , so !!
another issue, VPS assigned with IP address, this IP address was blacklisted on 3 major RBLs and outlook is blocking this IP too, and when i asked them to change it since we need a clean IP because we gonna sent emails from it, they said, it's extra cost option to change it ! and no gurantuee that new IP will be clean, why should i get a VPS with blacklisted IP ?
i tried to delist our ip from all blacklisted RBLs and outlook too,
but we faced a new issue, that our emails is not delivered in stays in queue for days
because our server lost connection with the remote mail server we are sending emails to.
Support answer: the remote server blocks your IP, talk to them to unblock
another topic, suddennly with no warrnings your server CPU usage go to 100% with no running prcoess !!!
so you open a ticket and wait 2 hours for an answer that it's fixed !! node issue !!!!!! sorry for inconventict
another major issue happened with Hostwinds
our VPS in server in Amsterdam,
after we migrate our emails/website from shared hosting to this hosting
we bought a volume storage 100GB and attached it to the server, and moved all emails files on it 70GB!
a history of emails a 7 years history. and everything was good for 3 days and at 4/10/2021 the say facebook was down, the amsterdam server had a network issue at 10PM and we lost all the the connections with the VPS
no way to day anything .. so i've opened a ticket and got no answer, go to live chat and got informed that there's network issue in amsterdam server, and we got access at 12AM but our CPU usage was 100% with no process running
and i toke screenshot from control panel that shows CPU usage and storage usage was 68% of 100GB
they sent me at 2 am a reply that the issue was fixed and they sent me a screenshot from the same cpu usage | storage usage
and i found that storage usage was 1% !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i replyed to the ticket .. WHERE OUR EMAILS !!!
i supposed to sleep that time 2AM because i've work tomorrow at 8am need to wake up
and i couldn't sleep till they fix the server .
and got no replies, so i went to live chat and i'm fired !!!
from 2 am to 6 am all they said they don't know what happened to the volume storage and filesystem corrupted, maybe you got hacked !!!
WHAT THE HELL, GOT HACKED !! how ?? the server connection was down, and if we got hacked, the hacker will go the cloud volume and corrupt the file system ???? talk in more logic !!!
support answer, they have nothing to do with it , network issue won't affact the filesystem of the volume storage!!
and it's my fault that i didn't subscribe for backup plan!!!
when i asked is the backup plan includes volume storage ,and the golden answer: NO!
so we lost 7 years of emails history and they do nothing !!!
Stay away from Hostwinds,
Support are sucks
Server Prices are very good, but no stability, no uptime 99.999999 like they said
alot of down times
delay in support reply on ticket
you need to validate every request with your self
Totally sucks Less
