I was actually pretty happy with their services for almost a year, then I had hardware malfunctions and DOS attacks with seemingly happen about every 6 months or so that take the server down for extended amounts of time. This last time was unacceptable though. Their response is extremely lackluster and not what I expect to be paying month in and out for.
My site was down for 17hrs and they were telling me no one could fix my problem until Monday morning - that's an additional 20+hrs before a tech looks at the problem, let along fixes the issue and brings my server live.
If you have a site or many that need to be up, rethink dotblock until they get serious about their service support
I have been a customer of DotBlock since 2010. They have expanded a lot the last 3 years. They have added new powerful hardware, several new VPS lines, including pure SSD VPS plans and also they have changed XEN with KVM. I have tested most of their new servers and DotBlock gets high results, and currently they are number one on my top 10 list.
Their customer service is really good, they helped me a lot to learn more how to use my VPS when I bought it. I had absolutely no problem in the last year with DDoS attacks or similar things.
Their network seems very good, fast speeds and my server have 100% uptime. I love the fact they offer unmetered bandwidth. It can’t be any better.
All in all, DotBlock has got new servers, new technology (KVM) and SSD Plans. You get allot for your money.

For over a year I was with dotBlock, and it seemed at least once every 2 weeks the server would go down and not come back up. Sometimes if I logged into their account management area, I could reboot the server. Other times, that didn’t work and I had to file a ticket.
Here is my experience with dotBlock, and why I believe you should…
AVOID dotBlock like the PLAGUE!
