Host Rating

Host rating? What comes to mind when you see those two words together, certain not a host at a restaurant or family dinner. No, this is a site about hosting companies and what their rating is with customer satisfaction, ranking over other companies with their previous customer, or even current customers. It definitely is like your typical site either, its not loaded with a bunch of advertisements where you get lost trying to find the ranking sites, and the ratings for them. One thing i can say about this site is that is very well organized, very easy on the sites and in a simple fashion, clean. It has ten hosts who are ranked by their customer satisfaction, as well a nice clean visible rotating background as you go down.

Overall i think this site will definitely by one that i will continue review from time to time to see if maybe i can get on it. Host-Rating.com is a good name for a site who plans to have reviews, rating, ranking system of the big top dollar companies like hostgator, lunarpages to just name a few. If you think this site is going to have a lot of affiliate links and ads all over, guess what your wrong.

Worst server company ever known!

As many of you have read, we had moved to a new server before this recent time of moving. The cause for this recent move is called Singlehop. Please note that I am going to be completely honest and raw with my personal experience with this company and advise you to keep your distance.

Our partner and us had decided to switch servers as we needed more space for our clients needs. While browsing the WHT, Webhosting Talk Forum, our partner came across Singlehop’s deal of which our partner could not resist since the server was orginally $280 per month but they deal was for the same server for $180 so our partner went for it this was around the end of December.

Our problems began quite quickly as it took 2 long weeks to get everything completely transfer from one server to another. Singlehop decided without informing us how the process was going to be done which lead to it taking a very long time. They decided to instead do a comeplete server to server transfer right then and there that they were going to package all the accounts on the server then move them via SSH (Shell). Now, as I stated to begin with, the reason why we decided to move is to get MORE space as our clients were going. They were taking up space when packaging accounts on the server, we had about 400GB of space being used by clients out of 500GB so by them packaging the accounts it was filling up fast. In which of course caused issues and clients were getting errors that the HDD was completely full. We had to repeatedly inform NOT to do the packaging that we just needed them to do the transfer rather than packaging serveral accounts and causing alot of space to be used before transfering and causing the server to be at compacity.

Then finally, transfering was done right and completed. Then another issue, 2 months of on and off again maintenance every week which resulted in A LOT of downtime for our server. You can certainly imagine how furious all of our clients were as they had to suffer because of it. Finally maintenance stopped but Singlehop’s Staff stupidity began once again.

They decided, which you can tell is common about now, that when the server was down they would replace a SATA cable and then move the replaced cable to another part of the server thus wiping our valuable data from the 2nd harddrive and of course did it without notification to any one in which caused some major issues and chaos amongst clients and our staff team. I have decided to include the conversation with Singlehop about this issue in this post which you will be able to see after this post is completed. Another  thing that struck a nerve with Singlehop is the more we had told them that they need to fix what they destroyed, the more they tried to turn it around and blame us for the issue. Then we finally said the hell with them that we would remount the 2nd Harddrive ourself. While getting the information, they tried to tell us that when we were trying to locate the harddrive that it should be the sdb1 which was actually our primary harddrive and if we listen to them and didn’t catch it that they would of had us whip our primary harddrive out completely. That was the last straw and we decided to get the hell out while we had data from our clients. So be warned, Singlehop are complete idiots and do not know what they are doing!!

I have reviewed the ticket history for this server and it does not look like there is anything that we would have done that would have caused this. I do not say this in an attempt to shift blame however as you do not have managed services on your account, there would be no reason for us to log into your server with the exception of hardware related maintenance. Additionally I do see a ticket from approximately 7 days ago indicating that your server recently ran fsck. When was the last time that you were able to verify the content located on the secondary drive? Thank you.

For the sake of being honest I have no idea what caused this and from my standpoint, this either looks like a morbid fluke or someone has been tampering with your server. There is absolutely nothing in the bash history which shows any cp, mv, or other data modification commands pertaining to /home or /home2. Additionally swapping the SATA cable on the drive would not have caused this. What seems even stranger is that there multiple accounts whych are symlinked to locations on /home2, for example, in /home we have iflrides@ which is a symlink to /home2/iflrides

root@freedom [/home]# ls -la iflrides
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Feb 25 19:50 iflrides -> /home2/iflrides

However we cannot follow the symlink
root@freedom [/home]# cd /home2/iflrides
-bash: cd: /home2/iflrides: Not a directory

Additionally if you look at the login information, the only times that SingleHop IPs have accessed your server was since the initial submission of this ticket. However, if someone were tampering with content on your server, they could easily modify the bash history and login details.

Recieved On: Fri Apr 03 2009 04:27:02 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)Greetings,

If you want to simply reformat the /home2 drive, you first need to make find out which device is mounted at that point. Use the following to get that information:

mount | grep home2

The line that results should look something like this:

/dev/sd[X][Y] /home2 ext3 defaults,usrquota 1 1

Where the “[X]” and “[Y]” would be replaced with a letter b-z, and a number respectively.

Generally, if you only have 2 drives in the system and there is only one partition on the second drive, the /home2 folder would be on the device /dev/sdb1

Once you’ve determined the correct device, you can use “umount /path/to/device” (where /path/to/device is a path similar to the above) followed by “mkfs.ext3 /path/to/device”.

Once the format is completed, you can remount the device with “mount /home2″.

Please let us know if you require further assistance.
