I have server at limestone

Issues that we face

1. Any time their network get hacked

2. Many times password get changed - Our Main server password get changed automatically and when we ask them same thing they ask for $5 for this.

3. OS Reload - This is very basic feature for any dedicated server provider but it is not working in their panel, Now they have again plan for that we can install any number of times and they provide facility to install free once in a month but after that they will change. (My point is we can do that by own only when this option will not show error. "A fatal exception occurred. Please open a ticket with our support department to have this issue investigated and resolved. In the ticket, please include the following ID number: 2150.")

When i am communicating with them they replied "I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. We're doing our best to get this completed as soon as possible but as we originally stated the reload window is between 1-4 hours. We'll update the ticket as soon as it's completed."

My point is - If this can be done in 20 min on other dedicated server provide by my self then why you need 4 hr (why i keep my server down for 4 hr due to your mistake).

Hello Guys,

My Company is using Limestone Networks from past one year for our customer and we have received so many good reviews about it that there is no down time, Faster than other hosting like Bigrock and other and the main thing which I love about it was that we were able to customise the server as per our needs. I would recommend their services to all webmaster and web hosting company.

Limestone has always been the most reliable dedicated server provider that I can think off. From time to time you will have those little moments where you think of switching. But I can guarantee you that if you do, you will be back.

of core options and redundancy measures.

    configurations
  • Name brand hardware, such as Intel, Kingston, and Western Digital
  • On-board Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI)

    configurations

  • 3 TB, 5 TB, or 10 TB outbound bandwidth
  • 2 GB, 4 GB, or 8 GB Random-Access Memory (RAM)
  • Unmetered inbound bandwidth
  • Limestone Private Tunnel
  • Clearance servers

Limestone Private Tunnel

This secure back-end network facilitates secure, free communication between the dedicated
servers you keep in Limestone's datacenter.

  • 2 standard Ethernet cards on all dedicated servers
  • 1 card links server to the Internet
  • 1 card links to the back-end router
  • Local Area Network (LAN) type set up

Clearance Servers

Somewhat less expensive than the newer servers, this equipment is available with many of the
same features.

  • Quad and dual quad core configurations
  • Limestone Private Tunnel access
  • Unmetered inbound bandwidth

Pros

  • Technical support 24/7/365
  • Enterprise grade dedicated hosting

  • More expensive than many other plans on the market

The Verdict

Limestone Networks is designed to provide hosting technologies for complex needs and other
hosting providers. If you are looking for a host for a small, hobby-type site, this is probably not
the provider for you. While it is certainly not the most inexpensive dedicated server host, it offers
lots of features for size and power, as well as excellent security. Additionally, support is available
around the clock. If you like Limestone's services but are concerned about the price, check out
the clearance servers for discounted, yet quality, options.
