WARNING

I have dealt with this company before during promos like this. Although it said my VPS would be available immediately, it took over 5 days. For me that mattered, I ordered it because I needed it now. The guy who runs the place (Chris) was a HUGE pain to deal with.

Took them to the BBB, took him weeks to respond.

Buyer beware.

For $30, I'm not expecting much, but so far I'm happy. I signed up last night, and it was ready immediately.

How do you get this discount to apply? This cart software is terrible. It looks like its applied, but the final price does not update. I have tried monthly and yearly.

I never completed the process because the price never changes, but now my hostname is "in use". I love shitty ecommerce software.

How is their uptime? Do they actually meet the 99.9% uptime they claim?

Make sure you use the right link in the OP, and that you specifically chose 12 months of service in the drop down. It should take.

Any of you guys using this for VPN with OpenVPN?

I have another UK VPS for watching UK BBC TV shows using iPlayer . I can watch them after getting a SSH tunnel via Putty.

I configured OpenVPN on it and setup OpenVPN on my Win 8 desktop. VPN seems to connect fine but then I cannot go to any Internet sites after connected in Win 8.

Has anyone got OpenVPN to work in Win 8?

FYI I am using 32 bit OpenVPN now since 64 bit was crashing as soon as it opened in Win 8.

In case anyone else is real noobish with VPS like I am, here's a real quick guide on how I setup my server:

If you're using Windows on your desktop, download Putty so you can SSH into your server:
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk...ham/putty/

You'll use the IP address in your account and the root login you defined when you purchased the VPS.


Then follow this guide to upgrade Ubuntu to 12.04 LTS through SSH:
http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-...-server-p2

For the most part, the guide follows 1-to-1 with the install. During the install, I had to tell it multiple times (like, 20) to follow the default action and leave some files. You'll know what I'm talking about when you see it.


Then follow this guide to install the cPanel alternative, Virtualmin:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1197883

Most of the guide you can skip. There's no need to edit your fqdn, IP address, or host name. On mine, this was all set when the OS was first installed. AppArmor wasn't installed by default, so I didn't have to remove it. So really, you can start on the following line:

"We are now going to download the free open source Virtualmin installation script."

After that, it's like 3 lines of code and you're installing like a boss!

Not seeing very many positive reviews on this place. Just because someone releases a very cheap deal doesn't mean it's worth it. This company isn't established and cannot find much history on them other then a couple negative reviews on quality of servers and support. Not buying.

Have you configured iptables to route traffic through the tunnel? This might not be a Win 8 issue, and more of a routing configuration issue on the VPS

Chicago node doesn't take the coupon anymore. Only Buffalo and LA.

In the middle of this blog post is what you need: http://vjetnamnet.com/how-to-inst...-centos-6/

Look for the section with "Now we’re enabling ip forward and create NAT iptables rules so we can access the internet with OPENVPN server"
