colorhost.co refuses to refund!
I recently purchased a SHOUTcast & IceCast streaming server reseller from www.colorhost.co. I was not happy with the 3 hours and 30 minute wait for support to come and assist me. I asked for a full refund. They refused. I opened up a PayPal claim. They got in touch with me saying, "if you close the PayPal claim, we will give you a full refund straight away". I closed the PayPal claim expecting to get a full refund straight away. Sadly not, I have been waiting 3 days, nearly 4 days for a full refund. 1 star out of 5!
Hello.

We do not have a 3 hour a 30 minute wait time as you claim. Did you contact us correctly via support ticket? We have a total of 1 hour response time. And would have been glad to assist you promptly.

We do not refuse refunds if there within the 5 day refund period of purchasing your product. We see that you were covered, and was glad to help you.

The claim was closed, asking for you to wait for us to be open from Monday - Friday 9AM to 8PM to refund you properly as we do not process these over the weekend. This was done, and were sorry for the inconvenience caused. And we would be glad to assist you if you choose us in the future.

Editorial Review


We at ColorHost think it's important to gather as much information as possible on your new provider, we included as much information as possible about us on this page.

ColorHost is a full hosting service provider with a solid foundation. With over 2 years experience, it's safe to say that our clients know our products and believe in them!

Our Goal Since our establishment in May 2009, we have had one goal in mind - to bring the web hosting prices cheap. We offer web hosting services that will meet the needs and wants of both new webmasters as well as veteran webmasters. We understand the need for reliability without putting a big hole in your wallet; this is why, ColorHost provides some of the most competitive prices in the industry while providing stability and proven reliability.

ColorHost has grown steadily since 2009 and gained valuable experience over the years. We have always kept our servers up to date with the newest technology and in most cases have introduced the newest technology ahead of other providers. Today, ColorHost is a leader in its field providing individuals and businesses a presence in the digital world.

Servers and Network: Our servers are kept up to date with latest PHP, MySQL, Perl, FTP & other server softwares and all have 12 GB of ram and run a quad core processors (virtually 16 cores). All servers also come with an unmetered connection to allow for continuous transfer of data so that your website will always be accessible. Our datacenter location is Kansas City, MO

In addition, all of our hosting packages come with cPanel/WHM, Softaculous, RvSkin, DDOS protection.

No Overloaded Server: High-end servers, low number of customers per server, and 50% less fat.

Our current hosting philosophy is based on guaranteed performance. While other hosts may try to cram as many accounts as possible on shared servers, we have used our years of experience and the technical analysis performed by our technical gurus to determine exactly how many accounts we should be putting on any given server. In addition, we are continually upgrading our hardware platforms to be among the best in the industry.

No Outsourced Support: Our team knows us, knows web hosting and knows how to help you.

Yes, outsourcing support can save a lot of money. But nothing is more infuriating for a customer than dealing with a support technician that doesn't understand the problem or has a failure to communicate. We are proud to say that in our two years of doing business, we have grown a great team of dedicated staff members, all as in-house employees. Each is fully trained to know our company and services inside and out, fluent in English and has excellent people skills.

No Gimmicks: This one is pretty simple. We have no hidden fees. We don't sell our services on gimmicks, trendy offerings or misleading information. We pride ourselves on offering no-nonsense high-quality web hosting with unique features you won't find anywhere else.

You will receive all the features you pay for, and they will all work. The amount you see on your invoice will be the amount you will be billed. When you sign up, you can keep paying that price as long as you are a ColorHost customer.

ColorHost.co is the best SA:MP Hosting around.
ColorHost offers awesome cheap SA:MP servers,their control panel is fast and really well working. The support of the host is brilliant,they have skype,msn,support tickets where they are replying even faster than 5 hours. You should get SA:MP Servers, I've bought two,and I'm happy with it. It has alot better control panel than volt hosts and its also really fast to upload files like on filezilla. You can pay with OneBip to order SA:MP Servers. Also there is discount code which lows your prices to 55%. 100 slots just 7.95$/monthly,and with discount code,3.3$/monthly.
I hope ColorHost wont be down,just run forever,because its the greatest host I've ever used! :)

Some of the best customer service to date!
I've had to recently switch hosting providers due to some not so pleasant people out there. The first two weren't that knowledgeable and were unable to stop attacks on our servers. However, Colorhost followed us via twitter, and offered some wonderful solutions to our problems, and we were back up and running in no time!

Great customer service. They earned my business.

Excellent support, always there, great prices too!
Great hosting provider, really quick set up and support. Most tickets replied to within 4- 5 minutes.

Extremely cheap for the specs of the server we receive. $5.94 for a 100 slot server, no lag, ping less than 40 my end.

Will defiantly use them for other services.

Colorhost means well, but...
They don't seem to understand the importance of providing a reliable IP address for a SA:MP server.

Players that like the server will add the IP to their favorites list so that they can easily find it again. Therefore, when they suddenly change their customers server IP without any warning or reason to do so (that's what happened to me), all the previous months of gathering players and paying for a listing on the hosted tab were a complete waste.

Understand this: when you change a server IP, that server becomes DEAD.
Hello Sir!

Our IP addresses are reliable, as you may have known from our emails we faced a DDOS attack on a node previously, and it required a IP change.

We always notify our customers of changes, so do stand on the lookout in your email and our social networks for updates.

Hope your doing well and were always here to help!

Thanks!

Colorhost is cheap and efficient
I left colorhost because of the choice of host locations. Wouldn't have if there were a wider range to choose from as location effects popularity
We have a Germany and a USA location. That is if your were a SAMP client.

What location were you looking for? We may have be able to help you.

If you want to see the Language of CEO see pic bellow,

He is the Language of CEO of this company. Don't host in any case with this reseller.
See their twitter, each day server down, hack, ddos, hard disk issue etc I think 99.99% down time
Blocked for WHT do to also scam and lie there too.
Hello.

We are not resellers as we have stated in the past, We also have 99.9% up time and haven't failed to provide this at all.

Our WHT is in the process of being restored. We have not lied about anything and have told the truth publicly to our clients about situations such as our .net domain being stolen.

Also, it does not give you a right to make a review on our products, considering you haven't tried them before.

Thanks for your time.

Someone can easily make up a false email address and use my name on a public contact form.

We are not a reseller, and own our own servers as well so that is fake

Really bad host
Colorhost.... One of the worst hosts ever as mentioned before you could never have over 5 people because the sever would just crash support was really really bad and i have heard recently they have been experiencing a lot of downtime! I have had lots of problems.... Never choose this host!
The server handle fine with alot of people.

We have not had a downtime so far within the last following months.

Colorhost is a fantastic service
The service is great! Packages are instantly activated after purchasing them. Great prices, very cheap! I have 3 domains hosted with ColorHost, Shoutcast & a SAMP server. All run perfectly and are great!
One problem I do not like is the Support. If the main administrator is not online to provide support, other staff have tended to ignore my calls for support. Overall, a great service.

I brought an account with ColorHost,

They rejected my phone calls, as well as a my emails.

They also refused to enable SSH on my account, saying how it apparently was a security risk, I actually had to explain to them how UNIX permissions worked before they actually were like "Ok we're change your then for it"

They took so long to respond, that I couldn't even get a refund, as when I filed a refund request within the 7 days, it took them days to reply so they refused to give a refund, despite it being asked way before the 7 days was over.

Their replies to other reviews here are lies, I've talked to a few of the people, and their outraged with how ColorHost has made them afraid of the hosting industry, especially when a "company" like this is ran by a 14 year old kid in his bedroom.

They have shitty servers, with 2 or so cores each on cheap OpenVZ VPSs, they no way are in expensive datacenters and use expensive servers.

ColorHost Are Theives
ColorHost started off well, however my account was suspended and no reason given, I've only just been told the reason why 6 months later. Customer support is terrible, they even stole my files and domain before directing it to a rival company website.

I do not recommend ColorHost and would try to stay away from it.
Hello Danny!

Your account was suspended due to it was a promo offer, and since you were not staff we took this away.

We told you in the beginning, so that is clearly false.

Our customer support has always been around, via many methods.

We never stole your files, your domain is redirected due to the fact that your domain was bought from the partnership we had with you.

Thanks,

Steal Customers Code
I hosted a piece of software at ColorHost (basic PHP script)

It was terrible, their servers could not allow any more then 5 people on your site at a time, otherwise they would just crash.

I quit them, then found out they had stolen one of my pieces of work and were using it for their own commercial reasons, after their servers got threatened offline by their hosts (they use VPSs btw, really cheap ones), it got removed.

And worse of all, they still believe they have done nothing wrong. So they obviously have no idea how copyright law works, despite being the best professional host out there.

Go somewhere else and don't use Colorhost. The owner is a 15 year old kid who pretends to be 10 other people (Carlos, Jason etc), to make him look big. However he isn't even a registered company, who has offices as he claims.

Also, who uses a .co? Its just stupid, also they can't spell Colour right.
Hello Daniel!

Your PHP script ran fine.

We never stole work, and as soon as you requested it off we removed it no questions asked.

As you were not really a paid client (Your hosting was sponsored for your panel)

Our owner is not 15, and clearly a false lie. and we have 10 staff here.

We have a office as well.

We would use a different domain, which were in the process of getting. And "Color" is the American spelling, since were American company.

Hello,

I have been with ColorHost for less then a month and am Very, VERY satisfied with their Support and Service. The Price is absolutely fantastic for a SAMP Server for $7.95 USD a Month for 100 slots and you can't get any cheaper than this!

I would recommend this host to anyone I come across who is wanting a good price + the best help I have had with any Hosting Company. They act with 110% Professionalism and 110% 24/7 Support when I need it.

If you were going with any Host I would choose this one!

Great Servers & Exceptional Support
I've had other services hosted by ColorHost before, but we lately bought a VPS from them and it was definitely a good value for a small price.

Had a few kinks to work with the server at first, but support was good enough to help us out. I wish support was more available at times, but with the many ways to contact them it might be asking for too much.

Now that everything's up and running, server's definitely fast and there's nothing to really complain about. Downtimes are rare, but usually fairly short and you get a fair warning if anything's planned.

I have been with ColorHost since December 2010; Haven't looked for another Shoutcast Host yet. Been very pleased with both the service & support and the price. Out of 100 times, it's been up 99% of the time. I use a shoutcast plan hosted by them, and everytime I've needed help they have done an amazing job of helping.

Colorhost = Excellent Service And Affordable Pricing
My name is Aidan Paluch and i have been hosted from ColorHost for over a year. I have no intentions of leaving ColorHost because it is affordable and a reliable host. The only problem I had with ColorHost was when they switched servers. My website was down for about a week because of this. Other than that I had no problems. Kevin the ColorHost CEO is helpful and I think one of the best Hosters. Thank you for reading my review!

Update - Hotlinking allowed
You stated-->We here at ColorHost Have tons of staff working non-stop to fix you issue, The Nginx Software we have recently upgraded to on are server "does not support hot linking", but we have recently found a "work around to this that allows it to be on". (That's hilarious!)

So Hot linking can not be enabled by your panel, and must be enabled by asking us. (Can you really be this dumb?) By your replies the answer would be "Yes".

Duh, are you guys retarded? Who in their right mind would want their hosting company to allow hotlinking? Furthermore as i've stated before allowing "hotlinking" enables others to STEAL your hosting companies BANDWIDTH. If you think that should be allowed that would make you delusional to say the least.(LOL)
We dont allow hotlinking on our servers.

We have went back to apache when we noticed nginx was causing this issue, so now they have total control over this.

I have recently begun using colorhost for my minecraft needs and can happily say that the customer service provided by this company is second to none, extremely personal and they are more than willing to go the extra mile no matter what package you are hosted on. This is generally one of the biggest issues I've found with other hosts in the past and was happy to see that at least one company was addressing this.

The servers themselves are _extremely_ competitively priced, you get more bang for your buck than anywhere else and even their servers hosted in the UK are far cheaper than any other provider! I have had 0 downtime and excellent network performance.

I would like to give my personal thanks for Kevin, who has held my hand throughout the entire migration and has been in touch with me regularly to ensure I am happy with the service.

The only issues I can see with colorhost is the lack of a power panel and in this particular network only the choice of centos as my [read more...]

I do not recommend hosting with ColorHost. It's a horrible host. My reasons are listed below.

1. ColorHost uses cheap reseller servers.
2. The owner, Kevin, is extremely immature. He's 15, too.
3. The owner, Kevin, has taken credit for a template designed for ColorHost's website. The original designer was Sam Marks, and in the footer it said "Template design by Samuel Marks", which he removed and replaced with his own name. He just recently gave Sam credit again, because he "lost".
4. Personal issues are brought into the hosting. This is why you hear the people that have no problem with Kevin saying that ColorHost is good. But, if you have an argument with him, you risk getting your account terminated.
5. ColorHost goes down often.
6. Look at the negative reviews, he deems them as "fake" because they're negative.
7. The owner can't use proper grammar.
8. The owner claimed to shut down two times for sympathy.

Hello Jeff!

ColorHost has a 99.9% uptime, and has not had a issue yet!

The Reviews here, do not provide vaild infomation, which deams to me that they never tried our service and are not a client.

We recommend you try our service, and not based fully off these reviews.

I don't see why everyone hates this host so much, I've been using them for several months now and have had little problems or disruptions in service.

I get a better free hosting plan than most sites charge for paid hosting.

Colorhost claims to be a reputable hosting company. This is far from the truth.

First off, where to begin.

The "owner" or self-proclaimed "CEO" of Colorhost is actually a kid. Yes, a kid. Call his customer support line, and if he answers, you will clearly be able to tell.

Second, he uses cheap servers. He originally was using cheap VPS' and claiming he owned his own servers.

His servers security is considerably poor, and performance is lacking in many various areas.

But besides all this, he drags personal issues into his "company." One of his clients designed him a template, in return for a copyright link in the footer of the site. When the client got sick of problems with the host and decided to leave, the owner removed the copyright and claimed he was the creator of the template. This is a lie. He illegally stole the template and violated the agreement.

His servers have undergone multiple issues due to his severe lack of experience, maturity, and security [read more...]
Hello Josh!

Our servers have high performance to handle many of high traffic websites, Our servers have 16 core Intel Xeon In them.

Our service has high top of the line security on them.

The Template was designed by Kevin Hammett.

We also provide refunds, as long as the reason is valid.

Our servers are not cheap, and end up costing arround 1,000$ to have.

I value ColorHost quite well! I wanted to start up my own hosting business, and their Support has been a major help. Even when I don't understand things quite well, they always are happy to help! They have quite fast servers, and everything is speedy!

I don't see my self moving from ColorHost ever! For Downtime, I don't really ever see it, unless something major happens, and like I said above Support is always happy to help with a problem. =)

I have been with colorhost through a lot in the past year. I have moved some of my sites off there host a few times, but each time I return because they offer some great high powered hosting. I know many people say that colorhost sucks, but they have not had a problem and then asked the support and gotten it fixed right away. The person running the host is very professional in handling clients, and always put me first no matter what happened.

I would tell anyone to use them!

Despite my earlier review on this host, this is one of the worst hosting experiences I have ever had.

I switched from this host to another host, with a dedicated server, because I felt better being hosted on a dedicated server instead of some cheap VPS (It's true, the VPS he has is around $20 a month). When I switched, he trolled me on a site that I use, and when I requested the template back that I created for him, he removed my name from the footer, and replaced it with his own (I actually designed the current template, but he changed the name).

He would constantly argue with me, and threaten to delete my hosting account, forcing me to take several backups all the time. The behavior is just extremely immature.

Do NOT use this host. You will regret the decision. It's run by a couple of 13-year olds who are looking for some money. I wouldn't trust them to your files.
ColorHost Uses high powerful servers to host your website.

We have lots of servers, To name some: Axiom,Green,Zeon and plenty more.

The Template on our site was Designed by the owner Kevin Hammett.

If you have any problems, contact us.

They always help me with all my issues and all the time i check the site the livesupport staff seems to be on.

Colorhost is one of the world worst hosts I ever used. Lying to their clients. They have only reseller accounts from different host and asking their clients they have dedicated server’s lol. (Search colorhost.net in Google you will find out the hostname of their reseller accounts providers)
Providing free accounts to client in exchange of good reviews.
Down their server each day, (view their twitter page for details)

The color host is administrated by some school kids. Not a professional host.
(Search the name of owner in Google and you will find out the school name)

Don’t host with then at any cost. World Worst host ever.
Since the client could not supply any infomation, the client is fake client.

our servers are not down each day, we have 99.9% uptime.

We do not offer off of reseller accounts all servers are owned and operated by us.

And we do not provide free accounts.

Thanks

ColorHost is great. When my old host was failing me I asked them if they could sponsor me an account. And sure enough they did. They even transferred all my clients to my new account for me! I couldn't be happier! ColorHost.co ROCKS! :)

In my time spent with this host, I have had excellent support and service. There have been no downtimes, except at the beginning when they were experiencing some server issues. But throughout that whole time, they kept me updated with their Twitter, Cloudica, and Messaging accounts.

The server is fast, and the cost was excellent.

The only reason I put an 8 for features was because they don't have shell access, but then again, most hosts don't.

Worst host ever. It's just a little kid behind the website supporting you people with overselling Master Resellers. It's a get rich scheme.

I went from colorhost to Servelayer.com and Servelayer.com is more organized !

Try Servelayer and they would'nt let you down. They even got Texting for faster support for urgent issues.

boo down color host !
Hello!

ColorHost is horrible! Joined with them on a Linux VPS plan to run a private gaming server. The day after the server was setup one of the owners (Kevin AKA tagagame) tried hacking his way into it! After IP banning him and experiencing horrible stability issues, I decided to cancel LESS THAN 5 full business days from signing up. Kevin then sent me an email saying that I was past the 7-day (later changed in a follow up email to 5 days) refund period. Wasn't until I publicly bashed them in front of a live audience that they finally gave a partial refund.

Plans, specs and terms aren't even listed on their site. Horrible service, horrible staff, STAY AWAY FROM COLORHOST! They are a shoddy fly-by-night operation just waiting to take your money and run.
We here at ColorHost Provide Budget VPS, The Node you were on was experincing issues and we were going to move you onto a other server, but then you requested a refund so we gave you that refund.

Are TOS is listed on are site, It is the bottom of the page near the Copyright infomation and at the bottom of Live help button.

The reason this is not listed on are site, is because these VPS plans are only in test production, They will be on the site soon.

Worst hosting I've ever experienced! I was told they were reliable and had excellent up-time which they did for a few days. My account was suspended for no reason whatsoever, I abided by all TOS's and was suspended! The customer support was the worst of all, there was no way to contact them except for a rival site chat. I expect that my account was suspended from a bribe by the rival entertainment site!
We do have a good uptime, your site was Suspended due to you abused a other client of ours which is are TOS clearly states you cannot. And we have had contact ways posted on are Website for the longest time. We have email, MSN, Phone, IRC, Twitter And lots more other ways to contact

This is how deluded the staff is at Colorhost. Kevin and his staff couldn't fix the hotlinking error that's why I moved the site to another hosting company. I don't have a hotlinking issue with the new hosting company because they know how to configure a server.

Hotlinking for people who know what they are talking about code is inserted into .htaccess file to prevent hotlinking from any website.
This same .htaccess file was used on other hosting companies and it worked and I didn't have to ask to have it enabled and never did with any other hosting company.

You are just full of Bologna! Nobody ever said hotlinking couldn't be turned on on "our" servers. By the post you made below makes you look even dumber than you sound! Btw hotlinking option is on Cpanel and nobody has to ask the webhosting company to turn it on. Maybe on your camel jockey servers but not at a real hosting company!

Hello Russ!

The reason we run Nginx is to improve site speeds and overall have a faster server.

Hotlink isnt supported in it, and we hope it is supported in the near future but for now you must ask us to enable/disable for you.

Like we said were sorry for inconvenice that was caused and we value your review!

This free hosting company allows other websites to hotlink to images on my website. When I emailed Kevin he said "hotlinking" ok. I couldn't believe he's allowing hotlinking and doesn't the mind people stealing Color Hosts bandwidth.

I had an .htaccess file that worked on other servers but didn't work on Color Host servers because the servers are configured incorrectly. I also blocked certain referrers using an .htaccess file and again it didn't work on Color Host servers.

When I first contacted Kevin he stated "I know what I'm doing" and the servers are setup correctly. This was his reply everytime I contacted him. He doesn't have much to say because he's too intelligent and a Ceo.

On the subject of hotlinking I setup a test page on my other website to prove anyone can hotlink to my website hosted by Color Host. That's when he emailed back and said "hotlinking ok". Most webhosting companies don't like anybody stealing bandwidth but at Colorhost it's ok.

I finally had [read more...]
Hello Russ!

We here at ColorHost Have tons of staff working non-stop to fix you issue, The Nginx Software we have recently upgraded to on are server does not support hot linking, but we have recently found a work around to this that allows it to be on.

So Hot linking can not be enabled by your panel, and must be enabled by asking us.

Also by what your saying is that hotlinking couldnt be turned on on are servers, which is not true.

We take all reviews in to count, and We thank you for your response!

Well, what can I say. Colorhost is a superb hosting service. Their support is excellent and it's always on. Even at 2:10 in the morning, when I was working it was still on. They have excellent uptime, and I can't remember a time when my website was down. Either I didn't notice it, or they are extremely good at having a good uptime. They have excellent packages for hosting, and the best part is that they have NO RESTRICTIONS. I have a special package catered just for me, and I can upgrade anytime I want, and the upgrade is usually instant.
Overall its one of the best hosting providers I've had, and like Lance I plan to sticking with them for a long long time!
