What is Mankayia?
[The free version can be found at https://web.archive.org/web/20150919075327/https://www.onlinestoragesolution.com/ and does not provide all the features described here.]
Mankayia works by creating a FreeBSD VPS with unlimited storage and installing very useful software such as ownCloud, Transmission, Plex, Pydio, and a web SSH client, which users can access via a easy to use control panel. They give you root access to the server, meaning that more advanced users can install software of your own as well (limited by CPU speed and memory use). The provided software gives plenty of functionality, such as downloading torrents, backing up or storing files, (S)FTP, Rsync, SSH, Webdav, simple file sharing, and media streaming. One user has said that Mankayia is like owning a mini Dropbox, Box, and Netflix in one package.
Every server is encrypted so that no one else can access your files or even see what is on your server. All default software is set up to run over SSL so that it is difficult for any middle man to see any data being sent or recieved.
The service has been discontinued and the official website is no longer accessible.

I originally loved this service when it was Online Storage Solutions. After it became Mankayia, the support dropped off all while they were trying to move everyone to a new platform. I think in retrospect they didn't want to move anyone. Rather they wanted to leave the old customers to waste and start over. So in effect I have lost access to my old data and am supposed to be OK with that and setting up a new account. VERY BAD!!!
Email support has dropped to zero, and the phone line is always busy, if it works at all. No one ever gets back to you. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS SERVICE EVEN IF IT LOOKS GOOD ON THE FRONT END!!!!
The Error (for the old site) I am getting is home directory not found. My new site does not work any more either but nothing was ever there anyway.
