Site: sonwebhost.com
Service: VPS reseller account. B2 plan.

Signup: Smooth. 3rd party cc handler.6 hours or so before i got login.

The good stuff:
Good friendly service and fast replies. Thats it.

The bad stuff:

1:
Their system is not ready for customers. None of the functions in the reseller panel worked. I could not

– Create a new virtual machine
– Set any limits for it.

48 hours and 4 tickets later. The problem remained. They told me that they had to set them up. So i asked them to do so. 100% of the ressources shared over 5 vps. Example. 100gb hd, 5 vps. 20gb per vps.

This task the support member was not able to perform. Vps was setup but not the limits requested.

2:
They only offer 1 template. Centos 5.7.

When i asked, how do i get debian then ?. The reply was that i had to login via ssh and install it on top of centos. These guys have NO idea what a template is at all.

3:
They use Pentium 4, 3ghz dual core from 2004. (Northwood) for their vps nodes. YES seriously.

Imagine 12-16vps on that cpu. Im fairly sure im the first one to signup. So i got 450 score or so but with 2-3 more resellers on that node it would die fast.

4:
Small thing but announced amount of ram didnt match the info in my reseller panel. this was fixed.

Basicly these kids have no idea what they are doing and had a spare pentium 4 box laying around and they though. “Mmm lets put 12-16 vps on it and resell them for a cheap price”

Stay away. I have requested a refund, i hope they give it to me. And im not a bad guy. Mark (The owner) I wish you the best, but you are miles and miles off offering something you can sell to others. Work on it and i will give your company another go, if you are around in 6 month. If your services and quality dont change, you wont be around next month. But lets see.
