I am seriously thinking of leaving the On-Rev platform.

I have several accounts, lifetime and payed ones on different servers.
In the past i always have born when there were problems with one of the servers.
I even felt negative comments about the reliability of the On-Rev platform as unfair and i defended RunRev and On-Rev.

But this incident now is one of many in the past. Please don´t get me wrong.

I do not blame David Williams. He doing what is possible. But my understanding is that he is the only one who is responsible for such bigger problems.
At least he is the one who replies to emergency support request regardless if at day or at night.

I do blame Runrev to not having extended their On-Rev staff and improve the On-Rev platform.

Btw: Does „ringing the bell“ at NASDAQ and showing ones logo cost money? If so, Runrev better would have invested that money into the On-Rev platform and the support staff.
It does not make sense to go for new customers also for On-Rev if you cannot handle it afterwards.

At this stage i cannot recommend On-Rev as a professional hosting platform anymore.

I am really pissed of now.
