Not a paid review. Had a dedicated server with Hetzner, as soon as I received the server it had issues. But it took OVER 30 mails for the support to decide and help me.
Here's the longer explanation of what happened.
I'm host... Daha ing an image upload service with about ~5k images uploaded every day and ~100k views per day. It was time to move off VPS at another hosting company, which began to be slow and it needed more disk space. I chose Hetzner dedicated server due to their good price. Ordered the server with two disks in RAID1, received it swiftly and installed CentOS.
After about 1.5 day after full migration, got a notification the server is unresponsive. It was completely down, so hard reset the server from panel, investigated the issue but there was nothing interesting in logs. It happened once again in about 8 hours. Contacted support and said something is wrong with the server, and they insisted i have configured the server incorrectly. It started happening multiple times a day. Ran a disk check which reported that everything is fine. At all times I was in contact with support. Over the next 15 days I constantly contacted them saying something is wrong with the server and supported with generic answers. About 3 days before the server expired (that's about 25-26 days into the plan), support finally answered that they will physically take the disks out and check their health. They asked when can they turn the machine off - well, anytime since.. it doesn't even work correctly for almost a month. Few hours later they came back with the information that BOTH disks were faulty. They said they'll replace the disks, so they replaced them, had to install everything again but.. I am missing data since it was on those disks that they removed. Had to contact my previous hosting to give me a backup of data which sadly they remove after 30 days. Finally, Hetzner plugged in one disk and I copied from old disk what was there. Then, the server was working for few days.
I got to host a friends site on that server. The site was threatened by a local guy he would ddos it. We even chatted over skype where he admitted ddosing. He even was ddosing from his server in Hetzner. So I immediately contacted Hetzner and said I'm receiving ddos from one of their clients, they asked logs, I sent logs, they asked more logs, I sent more logs.. over 20 mails was exchanged for them to do nothing. Their client from their server from their network ddosing me, they can see the router logs, they got tcpdump and netstat logs from me and - they ignored me. They even asked me 3 times to send the logs, which I already sent them. I don't know, there seem to work some kind of morons. The only good thing they have is price, nothing else. It's not worth to destroy your own business over smaller price. Daha Az
