    We are a little bit further in time again.
    What is the current experience with this provider?

    Looking at the registration and support (reaction time by means of test) this seems like a one-man's show.

    Prices are close to other providers, but there are a number of plans interesting. Especially the largest.

    Great. Thanks for your feedback.
    256 MB RAM thats not that much.

    Are you simple been able to update your system?
    As CentOS 7 'Could not allocate memory' at 256, even with simple tasks as update systempackages.

    Is VMhaus a one-man?
    I sent a ticket on Saturday morning about custom ISO + link. No reply so far.

    Thanks. I did not know.

    Although I think this is the biggest problem of many starting host companies.
    Most are tech enthusiasts. And have a heart for technology.

    Problem is that without staff, most of the time, if not all the time goes into communication and specific support tickets and not tech related stuff. After all, with a few servers, not much happens.

    And since that is not a fun job at all but boring boring boring, it quickly could be postponed.

    Example then web host startup:

    that is in part, part of the definition and nature of a startup - everyone has to start off some where. IIRC Michael Dell started Dell computers in his parent's garage !

    You need to take the bitter to get the sweet.

    The problem is that you have to focus on a good support policy.
    Something that many startups do not do.

    Because, see above.

    During the summer holidays things like that may not work as smooth as normally. Specially when talking about small companies.

    I've had to revise my initial enthusiasm since first running the benchmarks. I've had a dev environment running on there for around 4 months. I constantly get alerts that the wordpress instance is down. Not great when you're trying to show a client work. I've since switched my dev environment for the client to Hetzner and everything is fine. It just runs and that's really the case for all other hosts I've used Centminmod with.

    For balance I'll add that I've not really done any troubleshooting on the VMHaus instance. It could be something I've done wrong in setup/configuration. However, Centminmod has run perfectly on roughly 5 other hosts I've tried it with and that's over a 1 to 2 year period.

    VMHaus have always been really responsive to any tickets that I've raised.

    heads up VMHaus users, the company seems to be in some internal troubles - so best to backup your data remotely just in case VMHaus - BACK UP YOUR DATA NOW

    believe @Matt also has servers at VMHaus

    Yes, but it's only an annual $15 a year VPS I use for a jump server. I've already spun up a replacement with another company just in case they do vanish.

    Using a cheap 2gb vmhaus vps.
    I have been waiting for weeks for a ticket response for a custom ISO.
    Still no reaction.

    Given the fact that the owners and employee with a significant control has been written out at the company @Lowendtalk topic.

    It seems to wait for a crash or creditor, supplier to pull the plug for not paying services.

    Well after reading some of the other updates in that thread, I'm going to move what I need off my jump server and trash it just to be safe.

    Yeah seems best as the future is uncertain for VMhaus operationally wise.

    Indeed, haven't used VMHaus myself but from this thread user reports it was looking good.

    Don't understand why folks like those 2 other directors can do such underhanded actions and take off like that. In the world of internet and global social media/news connectivity - criminals or bad folks like this do need to be publicly shamed with their name and faces plastered over the internet for all to see! When their family, friends, past/current/future employers can all see and know what those bad folks have done.
