Just wanted to share my recent horrible experience with Feral Hosting. They just had an outage that lasted for 3 days, then they deleted my slot/account for no apparent reason in middle of my paid subscription. They do not respond to tickets. And I could not get a refund. Please do not sign up. They won't honor their service, but are more than happy to take your money.

I have been using Feral hosting for about 7 years now.
There has been one or two issues over time where their services/systems were having issues. Once the issues were resolved they did offer refund/free renewal of the your account for the time period they were down.

Their services are basic, but I have never had an issue where something was lacking. You can install various applications on the server that are not resource intensive. (NOT MINE CRAFT). You have SSH access to the server, the OS that is running is Debian and can easily install anything if you need something. There is their wiki (.com/wiki) page so you can have a look at some of the thing listed. You can also install your own apps via ssh.

The servers speeds are amazing and have never been able to reach the limit of the network connecting.

I use it as a Seedbox and have downloaded and seeded many many terabytes content.

I will continue using their services as I have not seen any reason not to.

I pay 拢10 a month, I get fast speeds and a reliable slot with a good wiki for installing modules and programs automatically. Plex support in particular is great. Very happy and haven't bothered shopping around since I switched to Feral as I've had no need.

I've used this site for years! Seeding/Leeching u name it!
Ofc when it comes to seedboxe's in general there are many, but I've found Feral to be the most honest & upfront with their services & very transparent which is a big deal to me.

Their servers are fairly priced for the period of a month, and the speeds u get are simply insane as everything is purely encrypted so 1 less thing to worry about. You don't need to spend a whole lot of money either as they give u quite ample storage.

They've got guide's on how to set up everything as well as software which they recommend, but you also have the freedom to pick & use your own if you want. & if your still not sure on setting things up they've got live chat's pretty much covering every hr of the day.

Great value for money, they provide fast speeds with flexible options and fast support. The staff are super helpful (thanks guys), and are patient with stupid questions that they might get often.

You do get what you pay for I must say. There is a lot of comments about servers being overworked, but they will quickly fix this if you ask to be moved. Other providers will have more powerful hardware that doesn't experience this issue as often, but it's all about what you are happy to pay for.

Didn't use prior to their upgrades, but I can say without hesitation, this is the best seedbox I've ever had. Only needed it for a couple months, but have had it for 5 months now, and have no intention of letting it expire. Awesome seedbox and Plex server with amazing performance for $10? Ya, think I'll keep it lol.

For those nonbelievers, they have a 7 day full money-back return. Put your money where your mouth is, you won't be disappointed.

There serves have been upgraded. Unlimited bandwidth on a 10gb network. Literally the best seedbox out there.

At one time I would have said that Feral Hosting were amazing… maybe a year or so ago.

I had to stop using them last month because their service went down hill rapidly. Speeds decreased seemingly over night and their website crashed just before last Christmas.

Although I have no proof of this, I can only assume that other people have had to jump ship and move on to the likes of Seedboxes.cc, who have, no doubt, been capitalising on this fact.

It is a shame, as the two guys that ran the service seemed like thoroughly nice chaps.

Early last year I had them for service and it was amazing… Fast, never any issues, great support… But this time around (the past month) I've had nothing but problems. Constantly having to put in support tickets to have my slot rebooted, problems adding torrents, problems deleting torrents. Not what they used to be and would never return to them ever.

Due to recent upgrades the peering has improved by a lot. It is a lottery tho if you get on a idle drive or a hammered one. Ask to be moved if you experience poor IO availability.

Overall good to see Josh and Mike still working hard.

For a tenner a month I get a full TB of storage and a blazing fast connection for my torrenting. I've got SSH access so I can setup goodies like a Pydio frontend for my downloads.

Good stuff.

I used them for some time but I found most aspects lacking with this company. The provided tools are fairly basic and don't compare well with other providers. There were many annoying persistent technical issues: speeds would slow semi-regularly for a few days; software crashes would occur and you'd need to tunnel in and reset it yourself; unexpected downtime for 12 hours or more every month or two. There was usually something frustrating happening. At the end of last year, they somehow managed to lose the entirety of their customer data and their website, which was the breaking point for me.

Worse, customer service is slow to respond and unhelpful, and can be downright rude or passive-aggressive.

My overall impression of this company is of general incompetence and immaturity. Perhaps if the winds are right and you're lucky, it might do. Best avoided. I personally would never use them again.

I have been using the service for 5 months now and I have never knew there was so much I could do with my server. Initially i thought i could only ise it as a seedbox but now i'm even running a private site en several other appliences 24/7 for only 10拢 a month. Definately worth checking out IF you know what you are doing.

Signed up a couple of times and the account always gets rejected. No reason. Do they even bother taking payment?

Had some troubles in he beginning, but this got solved by switching server. I have had no problems for months now. Definitely one of the cheapest seedbox providers out there.

I have been using Feralhosting for allmost two years now. I must say I'm impressed. The prices are fenomnol! 10拢, and you're up and running with 1TB harddrive space with 10Gb/s upload and download!
The support team is very friendly and there are a ton of software and support options.
6/5 – if it was possible!

Been with Feral about 18 months. They were (and still are AFAIK) the best value seedbox provider around.

They had a major issue in December 2013, when they migrated the servers to their new datacentre in the Netherlands. It was extremely frustrating at the time, but regular Twitter updates and a webpage detailing ongoing issues, meant that at least I was kept informed. All customers who were effected were given a choice of compensation. I took the storage upgrade and now have over 1TB for a very reasonable price.

This is a company that definitely looks after its loyal customers.

Since then I haven't experienced any downtime and the service is blisteringly quick. In adition to a web based management interface, you can also login to the console using SSH, so power users have a lot of control.

Overall an excellent service, strongly recommended!

Feral Hosting supplied my first seed box, so i didn't really know how they compared to others. For value for money it's hard to complain, they give you plenty of storage for your money(if you buy 3 months up front) and speeds are generally pretty good. I've had no cause for concern from customer services, they have responded to me quickly each time.
Trouble started for me in November 2013 when Feral Hosting decided to move the servers, something they said would take 3 days when in fact a month later they still aren't working. A lack on communication, only using twitter for update that only the most skilled and knowledgeable would understand. They are still sending out requests for payment(15 days earlier, i might add) yet their service just doesn't work even now (19th December). NO compensation, no emails, it's been incredibly bad experience. Well I had enough in the end and have moved to seedboxes.cc. Price was pretty much the same as FH with the same claimed speeds but with slightly less storage.
In reality it's so much better all round!
Everything about it works so much better, smoother and the speeds particularly the upload is greatly improved. Getting your content from the remote server to your PC is massively improved, with speeds using filezilla maxing out my net connection, which FH never did even with multiple files. The website itself is more profession with all the info you need to make setting up as easy as possible. I've been very impressed with them and they are a far more professional outfit than FH. I could easily mention another several improvement, small though they are but it makes all the difference.
Feral Hosting have a lot of improving to do from the website, to customer services and a number of other issues. I hope they get there but for now they have lost me as a customer and I can't see my going back.

No bad surprise so far. You get what you pay for, no less, and even a bit more. New servers (UK-based) run fast and stable, no peering issues contrary to OVH-based hosts. For basic needs, it simply works; for advanced uses, further customization and applications are no problem. The comprehensive FAQ covers virtually all topics, and should the need arise their staff and various users are there to assist (through IRC) – the icing on the cake. 🙂
