Work History and Feedback

  • May 2011 - Aug 2011

    Reseller Hosting / WHMCS / Primary Domain Configuration
    Yogesh is a very personable character, speaking great English, and with professional patience and innovative ideas. Unfortunately, after many months, some tasks remained incomplete, problems persisted with our server, and no solutions were in sight. Yogesh had limited time/responsiveness likely because he was busy running his company ahead of servicing one client directly. I'd recommend contracting with Yogesh' company directly rather than through oDesk, as his services do not seem to fit within the hourly billing model appropriately.

    Yogesh was quite helpful, speaks excellent English and more understandable than a Texan. Even though I got frustrated with 1and1.com tech support, he knew what to ask to bring up my Virtual server. I will utilize his service in the future as I require it. The work was done on a timely basis within the time he estimated. I love with work ethic and taking care of the customer, me.
