I've been with Evolucix
since early 2011, so about 3 years now...
Back in late 2010 and early 2011, I was very much into trying the alternative website control panels that existed at the time -- Virtualmin GPL, ISPConfig, OpenPanel, Froxlor, Kloxo and others. As you know, I'm at WHT a lot, for my own needs -- monitoring my hosts, monitoring the industry, seeking the infrequent tidbit of help/advice, or just sharing thoughts on the hosting industry. It was this last topic that sparked the interest of an Evolucix
owner (there used to be two) who followed me here and PM'd me.
During that conversation, he suggested I give them a try for my panel testing.
I was very apprehensive at first, as Evolucix had young owners at the time -- one in college, one in his last year of high school. It could have very easily turned into a "kiddie host".
Most young-run hosts:
(1) fail with the customers getting screwed -- this is VERY common!
(2) sell the "company" (hobby business) to another "host", which is often just as bad or worse!
But I went ahead and ordered an unmanaged VPS, since it was for unimportant testing.
Some months later, I went to Dallas on business, and arranged to meet the younger owner (Shayan) for lunch. I felt much better after that, as some of the things Evolucix was doing were quite impressive. He was not your typical stupid teen, with a big-head attitude or get-rich attitude; he was very grounded.
But as I knew/feared would happen, the younger owner did eventually leave.
At least 99% of young web host owners:
(1) lose interest
(2) have to quit working, in order to spend more time studying and graduate
(3) get in over their heads, and the wishful-thinking "easy" business isn't that easy; reality sets in
(4) move on with their life, onto another career path
However, that still left one owner (Avish). And he and I have had a number of email conversations since then, about his future and the future of the company. Remember, he was in college 3 years ago, meaning he's probably done now.
They deserve credit for being very honest and transparent about all of this.
And this might actually be one of the 1% of young-run hosts that long-term succeeds.
Uptime / Support / Price
In 3 years, there's been almost no downtime. Most months have 100% uptime. When there is downtime, it's usually for brief node maintenance, and customers are notified in advance. There have only been a few DDoS incidents, and those were mitigated fairly quickly. (From what I was told, the have some DDoS mitigation hardware.) In the past, there's also been some VPS abuse issues; it's OpenVZ, after all.
They've always paid attention, and took action during the WHMCS and SolusVM exploits in 2013. Quite a few hosts get caught with their pants down when it comes to 0-day type exploits!
Support has always been acceptably fast, with with response within 1 hour, and resolutions within 4 hours. (Unlike some hosts, they don't promise responses in X minutes, and then fail to deliver. Nor do they waste time with stupid replies. The issue is generally fixed the first time. That is, when there's even an issue!)
The VPS use OpenVZ virtualization. That VM method is okay, nothing special. OpenVZ isn't as good as Xen, KVM, VMware, and Hyper-V --- which, of course, costs more. (Also see if they have a newer vswap node, I'm not a fan of UBC. I've been meaning to ask this myself.)
They use Colo4, a decent datacenter in Dallas.
The price is fine to me. It's not unsustainably dirt cheap, and it's also not expensive. Fair price for a decent service.
The fact that I'm still with them should speak volumes about the host.
If you want an honest, no-nonsense host with good pricing and excellent uptime, use them. I do!
To date, I'd never written a proper review for Evolucix. So I went ahead and spent some time answering this question. They deserve a good review! (I plan to do another one, based on some exhaustive criteria, but it's good to be a while.)
So ... does that help answer your questions?
