|Couldn't ask for more! It's absolutely perfect. Each and every time I ask for support, I get the best response ever! This is a service which definitely looks after their customers.|
|Being new to going down the VPS route for hosting meant a reasonable learning curve for me. But when ever anything did require messaging support they are staffed by lovely reps that respond to you quickly. |
So far haven't experienced any downtime issues.
|Fantastic customer service throughout my (ongoing) subscription, completely reliable machines, rate highly.|
|I've had no problems with the hardware, support has been accommodating, friendly and very prompt. |
All things considered, I've had excellent return on investment.
|GigaTux's customer support is second to none. They respond quickly with relevant information every time. |
Ofcourse their VPS offering is both value-for-money and reliable. Web apps that I have built on their VPS have managed to take a surprising amount of load before falling over.
Overall I'm very impressed with GigaTux.
|Having never used a VPS before GigaTux, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to get set up. |
Any queries or issues I faced were cleared up very quickly thanks to the support provided.
Overall I am impressed with the service and have found it nicely meets my requirements (hosting my website).
|I've been using a Gigatux for hosting a web server, very active git repository and mysqld for some months now. |
The service has been great from the start and I haven't run into any issues - it's been plain sailing since the setup email describing how I can set up my VPS, with constant uptime as well.
They're a hassle free VPS provider (at least for me), and so I'd recommend them to anyone.
|I have been a GigaTux VPS customer for several months now and have been impressed by the quality of service received. The value for money surprised me, and their 24/7/356 around-the-clock support is unmatched. With very flexible pricing plans and packages, I would recommend GigaTux wholeheartedly.|
|Had taken out a VPS to trial for myself, and was pleasantly surprised by the service received. Had no issues with setup, which was very fast. Customer support replied exceptionally quickly to the few enquiries I did make. The VPS itself ran fine, and I had no issues with it. Was impressed by the large number of automated install distros they had available.|
|I had to cancel my hosting with Gigatux, but it was nothing to do with their service. Their service has been excellent, and support tickets have been answered in a matter of minutes even on weekends. Their panel that lets you manage the VPS is also excellent and their support team will help you with anything if you go wrong. If you are looking for a good, reliable, always up VPS then I would pick these guys. Great service. Well done!|
