• Brohoster: Proving their Excellent Services Yet Again
    3,001 replies, posted
Recently, it was billing time for brohoster. I paid all my invoices a week or two in advance, so I don't have to worry about anything not going through, etc. [img]http://i55.tinypic.com/2iw56dw.png[/img] Top is service, bottom is domain, both paid in full far before the due dates. However, brohoster apparently neglected to renew the domain, resulting in it being squatted. Not to mention I've had previous accounts of bad service with brohoster, I don't know why I signed up for it in the first place and delt with it. Thanks Brohoster for putting Hoes before Bros. As for sending tickets, they removed webhosting support tickets, I had to file it under billing: [img]http://i52.tinypic.com/1sjxty.png[/img] This is what has resulted of my beautiful website: [img]http://i55.tinypic.com/2817dvn.png[/img]
Brohoster puts on the appearance of a down to earth host that cares and whatnot, but it really isn't such a nicely run thing. One time JWJ(brohost owner) posted here on facepunch something worded as if to insult another host, 'xenonservers' (who he previously had said helped him out somewhere along the line). I had asked in whatever the thread was why he would be harsh on them, to which the post was edited to remove the insulting wording. That isn't a problem, the problem is that he replied to me to pretend he never said it in the first place. Sneaky.

That's actually not a squatter -- that's the domain registrar themselves showing this page because the domain is pending expiration. At the time you paid, it was just before Jacob actually handed us the domain names. He was supposed to back in December, but never did until after he was let go. I've pushed through the domain renewal and renewal of ID Protection as well. Your domain should come back online within 12-24 hours.

They somehow fucked up the autopayments on a minecraft server a friend and I had, so now my friends account there is suspended and probably lost the map on the server too.

If you give us your ticket ID number, we can get your account un-suspended.
Brohoster have been great for me, besides a few problems when I first started (My fault for having too many plugins and not enough RAM) Now one of the employees regularly checks back on my server and comes to chat once in a while to see if we need any changes He also gifted me portal on steam out of the blue :v:
JWJ's gone? Guess I have no reason to continue using it, I pay for their cheapest hosting plan quarterly and don't do anything with it, I just have domains going through their nameservers or whatever, just too lazy to switch.
isn't JWJ the founder who else runs it
Hosting services come and go. Xenon was the GMod standard awhile back, now they aren't, Brohoster came by. Now Brohoster is doing bad. They aren't really any "good" long-standing services.
Woah, when and why did JWJ leave? Wasn't he talking about a control panel he was making just for Brohoster recently? Or is he planning on selling that now?
He basically got forced out for "being lazy" and posting a picture of himself smoking weed on Facepunch or something. I don't know the specifics.

Hi Jake
[QUOTE=SomeDumbShit;30460059]He basically got forced out for "being lazy" and posting a picture of himself smoking weed on Facepunch or something. I don't know the specifics.[/QUOTE] yeah i think they fired their CEO or something like that
Ever since JWJ got kicked out, it's gone to shit.
Back when I was testing out a Minecraft server hosted by Brohoster, I got an e-mail about their change of plans (new SSDs, higher pricing). It didn't have anything about JWJ getting fired though, when did that happen? I only kept the Minecraft server for a few days anyway, but I would have bought a server from them if I had the time to keep it up. Looks like I won't now.
[QUOTE=wingless;30466321]Ever since JWJ got kicked out, it's gone to shit.[/QUOTE] I haven't seen any changes, what evidence do you have for it's gone to shit? Sure, it's sad to see the founder go but the quality of service hasn't budged an inch. Do you host with them? Edit: Hohoho hindsight is a wonderful thing
Brohoster just isnt brohoster without JWJ.

Huh. JWJ was the face of Brohoster, that's why my friends and I were using it.

Meh, I've only really had a problem with the starting of the minecraft server, it took two days.. but I still have two instead of one mwahahhaa I also waited 12 days for my ts server.... but i found out they were borked.. anyone know if they work now?
[QUOTE=wingless;30467633][editline]15th June 2011[/editline] Also op.[/QUOTE] The prices have reduced overall since then: [quote] New Pricing Bedrock Tier - $2.95/mo - 4 players (192MB RAM) Stone Tier - $5.95/mo - 8 players (256MB RAM) Iron Tier - $9.95/mo - 16 players (512MB RAM) Gold Tier - $19.95/mo - 32 players (1024MB RAM) Lapis Tier - $29.95/mo - 48 players (1536MB RAM) Diamond Tier - $39.95/mo - 64 players (2048MB RAM) Obsidian Tier - $59.95/mo - 96 players (3072MB RAM) Netherrack Tier - $74.95/mo - 128 players (4096MB RAM)[/quote] So that email was written by Jacob (The one you quoted) and so that was at the time he was still CEO Whats that got to do with anything happening now? They are still going ahead with the expansion I don't see what point you are trying to make?
I also have some problems with their webhosting... My website a time ago just randomly went down, cPanel didn't work nothing. Right, So I asked their support. After 3 hours I got a response with: [quote]We're currently in a migration phase with our web hosting services, all of your issues should clear up after migration has ended. This may take place later tonight.[/quote] They didn't even send me an email or anything at all, They just did it out of nothing. Well after that was done, my cPanel got fucked up (Witch they still didn't fix) and stuff was just in general fucked up. Well around 2 months later. I tried to get on my website and it told me the website was suspended. Ofc I immediately contacted their support, this time I noticed they don't even have a section for webhosting anymore. I open'd a ticket and the [b]next[/b] day I got a ticket back with: [quote]Are you sure that this account is hosted with us? It's currently resolving back to "node59.myserverhosts.com" which is owned by HostNine, LLC.[/quote] Then I send them this: [quote]I'm 100% It's hosted here, else I would not keep paying you guys money every month. But you are saying now my website got transfered without even noticing me about it?[/quote] And then they send me this: [quote]Before Brohoster was merged with Club Uptime, Brohoster was reselling HostNine web hosting services. It looks as if your account was migrated to our servers here at Club Uptime, but your DNS records at your domain name registrar were not updated accordingly. If you change your DNS servers to ns1.serverprovision.net, ns3.serverprovision.net, and ns5.serverprovision.net for your ns1-3 respectively, your website should start working once again within 12-24 hours or so.[/quote] Thanks for not even notifying me about this Brohoster :downs:
