    Ready2Frag.com - All-New 2017 KVM VPS - Virtualizor CP - One Click Install Apps - From $4/month!

    At Ready2Frag, we've been blessed to have a wide range of services to offer to our awesome customers over the past two and a half years. Our aging VPS hosting was starting to show its age, and with a lack of updates in regards to the new SolusVM panel, we've decided to release an all-new vps...

    OVH intends to ruin the hosting industry.

    Innovation and providing a fantastic, let's-beat-everyone-else service also takes capital and a fair bit of it. I'd venture to say that it's more difficult for a small company to get hundreds of millions of dollars in loans, investments, and other debts to finance their company. Building on...

    Another day and same old ColoCrossing games - More Magical Employees Photographed Working Elsewhere.

    Given how close/buddy-buddy these companies are, I wouldn't be surprised if they stuffed some shared DC techs in some uniforms and mixed them in among their actual staff.

    OVH intends to ruin the hosting industry.

    True to a point, but the simple fact of the matter is that a lot of people in this industry are looking for a basic, competent service at a good price - and OVH beats most out in those areas. In no way is OVH perfect, but they have a clear mandate that is very similar to WalMart: Sell in bulk...

    Staminus Acquired by Stackpath, a Startup by Former SoftLayer Chief

    You misunderstood. I'm running on the assumption that he's going to run his new company like he ran SoftLayer, and consolidate. i'm 100% aware that this isn't an acquisition for, or even related to, SoftLayer as it stands.

    We've got a bit of a problem at Ready2Frag (HostVenom, LLC dba Ready2Frag) - we've got too many servers and we need to get them sold! We've got over 15 E3-1230v3 servers ready to deploy, and we're willing to make a deal! All of our hardware and IPs are company-owned. We colocate our hardware...

    Virtual6.net Ceases Operations for unforeseen reasons :)

    OVH's ticket support is absolutely useless. I've legitimately seen wait times of up to 1 month - 30 days! - about financial issues. The phone support, on the other hand, is generally significantly better - but often won't handle financials; they'll throw you back over to tickets, things will...

    Staminus sites offline - massively hacked

    So, because we want to maintain affordable and sustainable pricing for both ourselves and our customers, you intend to avoid us at all costs, despite the fact that we own all of our hardware and IP addresses? Our priority is not "cheapness", it's the value and sustainability. Absolutely nobody...

    Staminus sites offline - massively hacked

    It really seems to me like you're taking this to the extremes. I urge you to suggest to me a DDoS Protection provider that supplies the same level of support and service in general for around the same pricing. Beyond that, yes, obviously mistakes were made. Obviously we're highly disappointed in...

    I echo this. We've been extremely happy with Staminus - the support has been dedicated, extremely helpful, and fast in helping us optimize our mitigation to best meet our needs as a gaming-oriented hosting provider. The service itself is great and I'd still recommend them as a DDoS Protection...

    Staminus sites offline - massively hacked

    That would be correct. Like I said, there was some time where they appeared to be actively attempting to cover it up. No acknowledgement of a breach even as the databases/leaks were being downloaded by thousands of users, users who also reported it directly to Staminus through Twitter and...

    Staminus sites offline - massively hacked

    As of right now, allegations are going around that they're actively covering up complaints and questions about the breach. They appear to be deleting Facebook comments, and deleting and re-posting tweets that have potentially incriminating information. Forbes has a small section about...
