Lies about 24/7 Support!!!
eBound Host lies about their 24/7 support. During the day they do have technicians that are available at night via the email or phone. However, at night, they just have a foreigner that can barely speak english telling you, "someone will answer your ticket as soon as possible." and they are not available via phone mysteriously. Out of the dozen times I have requested support at night (even extremely serious issues such as the site being down), they will NEVER RESPOND until normal business hours the next day. If you actually want 24/7 support, eboundhost is NOT THE COMPANY FOR YOU!!! I have never dealt with a host so dishonest.

Reliable rock-solid VPS
I've been hosting on an Eboundhost VPS since Feb 2010 and moved here from shared hosting.

I've rarely used their support, so can't comment much on that; all I can say is that few times I used their support, they responded within 5 minutes. One day, I got a random call on my cell-phone from Eboundhost requesting my feedback on their hosting.

In summary, their VPS is rock-solid and extremely fast with absolutely no down-time whatsoever. After comparing all the VPS hosting packages, I only decided to go with Eboundhost because they are provided much more on the same pricing others are providing.

But don't take my word for it. My website URL is www.rahulgladwin.com - you can check out my server speed, etc. I am proud to be part of this family.

I am an old man and an amateur at web sites. ebound has helped me with a few startup problems. Otherwise, they've just been a fast, reliable web host. I've had few enough problems that I can't comment on customer support response times. This is, probably, because they publish clear instructions.

I have a lot of large JPEG's and PNG's on the site and so I was concerned about speed. I check speed and availability by uploading my site every few weeks (after clearing memory on my browser). Speed is very good. Reliability has been 100%.

I pay $83.40 for 12 months hosting.

I'm a happy customer

Custom Built

Our servers are built in-house from top-shelf enterprise components from Intel, LSI, Seagate, Nvidia and others. Longevity and reliability are valued over cost and appearance. The equipment is often in service for the duration of its useful lifetime and retired without downtime. We do not cut corners and buy only the best equipment from reliable vendors.

Ugly Servers

These systems do not look like your average desktop computer, they are a case study in industrial efficiency, where form-over-function mentality has no place. Sharp corners, loud fans and they come in any color you want, as long as its black. These servers are designed for one thing only, to host your website in the most efficient manner possible.

The building's single entry point is outfitted with security sensors, vandal resistant and bulletproof glass, biometric hand scanning, mantraps, private parking lot and a secure loading dock.


Peering with some of the largest Tier 1 bandwidth providers, we are truly a carrier neutral host. Whether you will arrive to our network through XO, AboveNet, Level(3), SAVVIS, AT&T or Quest, depends on the current optimal route to your location. On the rare occasion when a provider goes down, traffic is simply rerouted to the surviving links without any outages to end users.

Located conveniently in the heart of the continental USA, it's a short hop to any metropolitan center. Your visitors in Los Angeles and Seattle will have just as fast of a response as those in New York and Miami.

Very reliable and high-quality VPS hosting. Customer service is outstanding. The only problem is the slow execution of PHP scripts.

I have been with eBoundHost.com since 2006. These guys provide services of excellence. They answer questions in minutes at any day/night time. It means they provide a real 24/7/365 support.
If your website ((x)HTML, PHP, MySQL databases) is well written then you will not need to contact them. There was always an error caused by my scripts!
Uptime is great! There servers are incredibly fast and reliable.
These guys can ask more money than they do ($3.95 for shared hosting at the time).

I recommended them to my brother (www.alarmyvyskocil.cz) and friends of mine (www.dickgreasley.com and www.romanmarsalek.cz). All of them could not be happier.

This was one of most sluggish vps providers I have ever ran into.
Also decided to leave their hosting package they tried to take all my hosted customers :(
Then told me Will send a check for whats left on your hosted package still nothing to this day and over 2 months. They keep moving servers without your knowledge and I had to get my memory allocation corrected!
Thank you for that review, Clarence. I think what you really need is a full time consulting firm to help you with your technology problems, not an unmanaged hosting account.

Just as a note for everyone reading, he abused our support staff with profanity laced emails and phone calls, blaming us for problems he caused to his own sites. And this is after months of our patiently reimaging and reinstalling his custom software (which is outside of normal boundaries of support). We refunded his money and asked him to leave.

Now he goes from site to site and leaves bad reviews. We host tens of thousands of websites, untold numbers of VPS's, whole data center full of dedicated servers, but you only see Clarence giving us bad reviews. Sign up today and ask for the "clarence" discount and we'll give you a 30 day free trial to evaluate our service.
