GoGrid is rubbish

Advantages: I signed up to their cloud server package and had a $100 credit using a promo code. Got to try out using the credit
Disadvantages: Virtual machines take too long to deploy, I deployed one and it did not work after 3 hours! Support fixed the problem by restarting, they said the Windows VM did not activate properly
Verdict:

Not worth the money, I would never pay for this service, just wanted to try it out. Their interface looks dated, can't really do much and pain to use.

I would stay clear of GoGrid and try a different company.

Support team are okay but I can pretty much guess they are located in India, bad English!

Review

Sales

GoGrid answers sales questions by live chat and telephone. I hooked up to live chat, curious to learn about GoGrid’s uptime guarantee. Almost immediately I was introduced to a sales representative named Steven. Impressed by the super fast response, I asked my question, excited to find such a responsive company. I quickly learned that GoGrid does not answer sales questions of any kind unless they’re provided with the full name, email address and domain name of the asker. When I asked if this was common policy, I was told I would be allowed to read the GoGrid website, but could not be helped unless I supplied a personal email address. GoGrid is fast and responsive, but unless you’re willing to give up personal details during a presales chat, they’re not much help at all.

Setup

I had an easy time of getting my cloud server up and running with GoGrid. End users need only select a datacenter, choose a server image and size and then configure the server to their liking. I was able to make short work of setting up my server and getting it online. Perfection!

Billing

GoGrid’s billing department accurately billed me on their pay-as-you-go plan. I was never charged for services I had not ordered and cancelling my account with GoGrid incurred no unexpected fees.

Reliability

In general, my cloud hosting experience with GoGrid was a pleasant one. I did, however, find that when I tried to send large files to my server space, the FTP connection would reset itself each and every time.

Help & Support

I made contact with the GoGrid support department on many occasions. GoGrid has a convenient toll free telephone number, but on two occasions I was only able to reach an answering machine connected with that number and never did receive a return call. GoGrid gives support by live chat, telephone and also has an online forum. Support is often slow to be received and in several instances, my questions were ignored altogether.

Uptime

I use a premium service uptime monitoring tool and experienced only a minimal amount of downtime with GoGrid. Network troubles took my website offline twice, but neither time was long enough to warrant a request for refund.

Pricing

GoGrid has several cloud server payment plans to choose from including a pay-as-you-go option, which I used. GoGrid is more expensive than other companies offering similar services, but not by much.
