"Since VpsLink has been bought I have nothing but trouble with their service. My Vps has been down three times and every time it took days for them to get it to run again. There's also a pattern to first push back and tell the customer that it is basically his fault when the Vps is down which is super annoying."

"They broke my Vps multiple times, even though it does nothing but run bind (DNS server), and is never, ever actually used for anything else, and they insisted it was my fault. Then they sneakily increased the price to 108$ (from 80$) a year with auto renew and no notice, while the web site still displays 80$ a year. I asked where that came from, and they told me the 80$ price was only for 'new' signups and would revert to 'normal' pricing. This is not mentioned _anywhere_. When I complained, all they did was restate over and over again that they were doing me a huge favor by setting the price to the advertised one, never answering my actual questions. I am starting to suspect they are robots. Sneaky, greedy robots. Do not do buisness with them, quality is abysmal."

"All I can say is this is the best Vps I've Ever used. Everything is so automated, I didn't have to wait days to get upgrades, not even 5 mins. Wow, thats all I have to say."

"I've been using VpsLink for almost a year now and the service has been fantastic. They are courteous and very responsive. In my search for a good Vps solution I found them to have great value as well. They offer several choices of Os with and without pre-loaded software setups. Bandwidth speeds are very good and uptime is near perfect."

"We are at this time evaluating Link 4 from Spry Cameron Jones VPSLink, virtualization based on Open VZ running it's high performance ones in a monster server with SCSI raid in the Name Intelligence Inc Datacenter (Seattle, Washington). Currently we are running two websites for test, setupped at command line at hostmenow.us and server.hostmenow.us. The VPS we are using costs $39.95 monthly ($ 33.29 for annual contract), offers 20GB of space disk, 512MB RAM 3 IP, 500GB of premium bandwidth and equal share CPU from the referred server, a Dual Xeon. VPSLink provide users with a custom Server Control Panel that's allow customers do reload or change Operating System from a list with a lot of distros like Slack, Ubuntu, Gentoo, various Fedora Core, CentOs, OpenSuse 10 and two Debian. We evaluated CentOS 4.0, Debian Sarge 3.1 and now we are running Fedora Core 6. CentOS, a free distribution based in Red Hat Enterprise, have some problems with yum but VPSLink have it's own mirror with all packages needed to install yum in CentOS. Debian runs fine, in high level of security and you can update it by apt-get, but have problems with .gif due the patent issue and browser does not display .gif images stored in Debian environment if you does not recompile the appropriate package to get lzw enabled. We also installed Webmin in port 1000 of this Open VZ VPS and this week we will install Direct Admin (also Zervex Server CP is available there at only five bucks monthly). For those interested in know how various different distros runs in a VPS this VPSLink is in fact a school; for those interested in run a VPS that rocks like a physical server these ones are highly recommended IMHO. Note that you can reload or change your Linux Operating System in few minutes, you can reboot and stop your VPS by VPSLink CP that is very fine and intuitive! These guys accepts PayPal and have a technical forum where users help users and uptime is 100% including during VPS upgrades (but note please that your entire data is destroyed when you reinstall or replace your OS, then you must have a backup). It's cool."

"I moved to VPSLink from PhotonVPS after constant issues with disk access (30 seconds to save a 5kb file) which they couldn't resolve. Things went smoothly with VPSLink for about a month, then all of a sudden, the host disappeared. I put in a support ticket and it was not answered after 4 days, so I posted on their public forum asking for help. Another 3 days later an admin replied and said that the host went down and posted it was going to cost $75 to restore it. I understand the plan is unmanaged, but for downtime over a week, this was absolutely absurd, and I replied saying "Don't bother, I'm looking elsewhere." and moved to Rackspace (which I have had 100% uptime for nearly an entire year). After posting this, they deleted the forum thread with my complaint in it. By the looks of things I wasn't the only one with these issues. Totally unprofessional, unhelpful tech support, slow response time and dreadful service that caused us two weeks of headaches... VPSLink are a hosting company I am glad to see the back of. Even though Photon was slow at times, it was a lot cheaper, and their tech service responded Always within at most 30 minutes."
