If you are looking for support, look elsewhere, their support is rude and their unwillingness to resolve a simple server problem for you is just plain horrible and left you stranded with non-working server and still charges you for it. This is the worst host I have been with.

Fast Servers has a lot to offer in terms of products and services, nevertheless, their customer service, sales and technical support has a long way to go still.

Senior executives at this company are still unaware of basic customer service etiquettes and have extremely bad communication skills. Imagine a vice president of sales that does not even end his emails with "Regards", "Thank You", and or any courtious closing words. This senior executive never forgets to list his title at the end of the email though.

After many promises from this company that their support and customer care are far better than my existing provider, I have signed up for a dedicated server solution. Only after 2 days I decided to terminate my service as their support was unable to fulfill a very basic request of having my software bundle web adminsitration sites accessible through port 80.

Their vice president of sales was very nice before I signed up for a server, but after cancelation, I started [read more...]

TestimonialsCustomer testimonials

I just spent about an hour on the support chat with fastservers.com. I have looked over the reviews at the bottom and I can honestly say first impressions are that they have DRASTICALLY improved their customer service. They were able to price me out a custom dedicated server which exceeded every advertised option at LESS than I was expecting to pay. They were patient, looked at different options and very impressive. If their customer service is poor before I would say they took note and worked to resolve that for sure. I am looking forward to working with them!!!

We, too, are migrating away from LayeredTech. We used to have 14 servers with them — we’ve migrated all but 4… and we plan to migrate those last 4 servers sometime before the end of the month.

Personally, I think they are jacking up the price in order to pay for their recent acquisition of Fastservers.Net.

We’ve been with FastServers since they called themselves “PowerSurge.Net” — and Fastservers.net recent acquisition by Layered isn’t really inspiring.

Their recent blog post:

“It is imperative that all customers are aware of this maintenance as there will be multiple outages that will occur during our planned maintenance within this facility. At this time we cannot schedule around any particular customers’ server operations, nor minimize the amount of downtime for a specific client; it is almost impossible to say when, precisely, we would handle a client’s server during this operational [read more...]
