    So to start, this outfit has lifted content and probably their design from other companies...

    The homepage got changed after someone on LET called them on copy theft, Shovenose to be exact:

    "Standard with every VPS Server Mania provides a console interface for you to be able to resolve any unexpected software issues"

    Now changed to:

    "Standard with every VPS Clouds 4 India provides a console interface for you to be able to resolve any unexpected software issues or unexpected system"

    Original shit stolen copy:

    http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:ZuDapWEzUrwJ:www.clouds4india.com/+&cd=21&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    What else?

    • Server located in Phoenix Datacenter Kansas City USA
    • Test IP 107.167.72.28
    There isn't any Phoenix Datacenter in Kansas City :)

    A traceroute to that IP shows it is Phoenix alright, Phoenix, ARIZONA.  IOFLood..

    But there's more!

    http://clouds4india.com/terms

    "Support Boundaries:Clouds 4 India Inc. provides 24x7 technical support to our Subscribers. We limit our technical support to our area of expertise. The following is our guidelines when providing support: Clouds 4 India provides support related to your hosting’s physical functioning. Clouds 4 India does not offer technical support for application specific issues such as cgi programming, html or any other such issue. Clouds 4 India does not provide technical support for YOUR customers. If you can email, we encourage you to email support (at) servermania (dot) com for assistance. Lastly, the Help files in the program you are using may have the answer to your question so please do investigate these resources before calling tech support."

    ---- bahahahahhahahahah -----

    Usually I would ask if this company was  a ServerMania shill/shell...  But on this one, a new spin..

    Are the people behind Clouds4India part of the ServerMania/ColoCrossing India outsourced helpdesk?

    or is this truly a lazy bastard summerhost?

    and... I'm not done...

    What is hysterical is this terms document I just quoted, ServerMania does or did use it... But so do SLEWS of others...

    What's terrible about it is the language:

    "We limit our technical support to our area of expertise. The following is our guidelines when providing support"

    ---> The following is our guidelines.... WRONG ENGWISH.   ---> The following are our guidelines.... <--- corrected

    Now the funny... Is your company in this elite group of lazy fools with fake docs, who don't even read their crap?

    I give him a +1 for admitting he ripped the design and providing my laugh of the day:





    Datacenter location confusion: the Kansas City part is because he used to have a server at Datashack  that he tried to sell on LET in April. 

    Looking at his post history on LET, I vote for option #2 "a lazy bastard summerhost"

    ServerMania is part of ColoCrossing?


    Oh, and they copied a bunch of text off ServerMania's website.

    Ahhhh yes the lazy, not to mention some what retarded and ripped, summer hosts time. This should be an interesting year to say the least. I have a feeling we are going to see more of these and more of the ones that are kind of hidden as well.

    Most of these people need a smack in the back of the head and damned time out as far as I am concerned. This is getting a bit ridiculous.

     Fixed that for you there bud. :popcorn:

    They're also claiming to be a registered Ltd.

    Oh I can't take it... Summerhosts are killing my research time.   I am going to have to outsource my research to an Indian staff.

    "Scalable billing we have for you to pay through !" --- then major payment processors logos. (From the above titled fubar is King company's website)

    You other legit companies experimenting with scalable billing?  Must be some new fangled feature of some customer management system.

    Surprised, Google Analytics again.   5 other sites being tracked on that account.

    So far I can't find any of them.  Unique situation :)

    Bahahaha!

    These jokers are back with another company.....

    Long live the stupid retarded, newbs, too good of deal to not buy IDIOTS on LET.

    Someone tell this host, SUMMER IS OVER.

    Sales offer on LET:

    http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/33579/vpsraid-solutions-dallas-kvm-sale

    so.... some folks wanted to know who this company was. So.... I do like this ---> View ---> Source:

    Up in there is this:


    <script>
    (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
    (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
    m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
    })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');

    ga('create', 'UA-35991531-7', 'auto');
    ga('send', 'pageview');

    </script>

    UA-35991531

    Hmmm who could that be?  We go searching: https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=%22UA-35991531%22

    #1 link ---> 

    So... VPSRAID =

    Clouds4India
    Bahahahaha!

    I just noticed they actually do mention their prior company name:

    "Being incorporated on November 1st 2013 , Our company has been providing Servers, Web development & IT services . We were formerly known as Clouds4India, But have taken up the present name VPSRAID Solutions, Inc. We aim on providing services to clients @ affordable cost without letting them experience any sort of problems pertaining to their services. Being well experienced to handle any kind of technical / non-technical issues We are always here to help you !. Our support is 24x7 Handled by different executives @ different TimeZones. So dont hesitate to contact us if a problem should arise."

    May, this time, they didn't repeat all the issues that started this thread.... But I haven't gone through their site yet to see how many sins they committed this time....

    They did commit many of the same issues (like ripping the TOS from ServerMania), but AThomasHowe called them out on it on LET a few days ago and they changed the problems he pointed out.  http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/33081/chicago-vps-unreliable-terrible-support#latest

    Clouds4India/VPSRaid's justification for ripping content from ServerMania: he's clueless about what should go in a TOS. :p
