This is the best hosting in Italy that I have ever tried. They are really helpful and give you everything you need.
Such a awesome vps that is scaleable

Have used a lot of other providers such as contabo which take 3h to setup a vps! Heard Kamatera over google and decide to try it out. Nice and easy, go into the page pick my config and click create. Serve my purposes of havin... More g a quick setup test bench for my needs. The pricing are good but i say it can do better compared to linode. Others are just perfect for my needs. Less

Technical issues & no refund (avoid SeFlow)
Arthur Borsboom,
3.2
The price is low and the quality of the services reflect that. A response of the support team is usually fast. However when there is more technical complicated issue at hand (more than stop/start server), a solution can take ... More look, or is ignored. Here are my annoyances, to warn other people. I have communicated these to SeFlow as feedback and asked my remaining credit back. They refused in which I gave them a last chance to do this, or I would post this feedback online. So here it is. :)
- Several times I have encountered that the CloudFlow virtual server was turned off unexpectedly. When I reported this, the answer was more or less: "this service is not great, you should take the more expensive one".
- Several times I have encountered that the CloudFlow virtual server did not start after a shutdown. I had to open a ticket to request help for repair and start the server.
- I have had issues with the billing of this virtual server, where the changes of resources (CPU, RAM) did not reflect the hourly rate. Although this got fixed, it took a lot of time and wasted effort from my side.
- I recently (March 2021) encountered a failure that the virtual server did not run. It was related to the fire at OVH. But there was no communication until I opened a support ticket. After that the communication appeared, which was very lean and more or less blaming OVH. There was no decent recovery plan or any real announcement/advice what to do next. The server is still offline and cannot be started. I cannot even destroy it.
- The support team puts the blame several times at the software or services of their partners. It is the other one; not them.... Strange, I thought I had a contract with SeFlow and not with their partners. ;-)
- The company does not do refund: "There is no refund policy". Charming, while so many problems.
If you chose to use SeFlow, which I advice against, add the minimum of credit, since you won't get anything back. Even if their services are under performing.

Incompetent and rude support
Slavko Lazovski,
4.4
Not recommended.
Support feels rude and apply obsessive marketing, like "Hey, I don't get, why you don't want to give me your mail, no spam guaranteed".
At the end i didn't manage to connect any of my credit cards for unknown... More reason. They said i should write to billing team for manual card connection. Previously not problem with this cards for any services. Less
