This is the worst host on the planet: Alibabahost
1.) Time from order to delivery of a dedicated server is at least 14 days, despite 1-72 hour guarantee.
2.) cPanel WHM users: Your service will be suspended after 15 day trial period because they cannot pay for your license, despite renting the software
3.) Netherlands servers: 10 NL IP addresses are promised in package; 1 is provided and subsequent excuse is offered that NL has "run out of IP addresses.
4.) Backbones (and latency) change every 10 minutes, constantly affecting traffic.
5.) Provider is managed by teenage Indians d/b/a in India by reselling whatever
budget machinery they can find (Leaseweb, Ecatel, Santrex ... all terrible providers...are their favorites) in France, Germany, and Netherlands.
6.) They charge you additional fees for paying them!
I've tried them twice. Stay away.
Biggest Pro: NL servers will not honor DMCA complaints
Biggest Con: Massive prolonged downtime and insane billing records
