Most Helpful Review
I just cancelled the dedicated server that I've had with Layered Tech for the last 5 years. Initially they were a fine company, but over the years they have become a horror. I should have left when the price hikes made clear to me that they did not want me as a customer.
Whereas most hosting prices have come down, Layered Tech keeps going up and up. I started at $50 a month, and am currently at $125 for the same server and level of service. The final straw was when they demanded additional payment halfway through a year of prepaid service.
With considerable effort, we talked them into keeping our contract intact until the end of the prepaid term. Amazingly, feel that they did us a favor by allowing this. We intended to cancel after this, but they've sunk their talons in and are demanding payment for an additional month at the new rate saying we didn't properly cancel our contract.
In their minds, they are once again doing us a favor by not holding to an entire year of service. In our minds, they are technically adequate but sleazy and avaricious company who should be avoided like the plague. You'd do better swimming naked in a tank of sharks. Steer clear and use anyone else.
