Yea, It definitely use to be enough time. A couple years back I had a "dedicated Virtual Server" I believe they called it then, never really had any issue's. I don't know why I had so many problems this last time. The support staff drove me crazy though. I was sure I was in VPS support and I felt like I had more knowledge than them, not a good feeling at all. I recall a couple years ago when I would call in for support (managed VPS) I still had people try and help me with problems. Now they just say sorry you are managed. Cant really help you. Also 'installotron' was broken for the recommended Drupal 8 package. It just seemed like nothing was working correctly and needed to be modified. I still use godaddy for my domain names but now that I found digital ocean, not sure I'll be back for hosting. It was super simple and took minutes to get up and running. I'll always be a go daddy customer for domains but I feel like the hosting side of the business isn't what it use to be.

after playing around for about 24 hours I couldn't take it anymore and got a refund on my VPS. In the past everything was so easy and just seemed to work? I started with pointing one of my domains to the VPS and then creating a cpanel user account and linking it to my domain. Went into installatron and attempted a drupal 8 install with an error message regarding a DB issue. I tried drupal 7 and it worked however the website couldn't be accessed without "www". I have never had so many issue's with an "out of the box" VPS. I literally did nothing but try to add a site and install drupal. No clue why things are so difficult now. One of the times I tried contacting support I got the response "This nerd stuff goes over my head" like really? why are you answering phones for VPS support? Tempted to try digital ocean but figured I would see what others tried here before I make another purchase.
