Deal Details

urlhasbeenblocked is now offering a 2GB VPS for $40 per year, this time with 2 IPv4 addresses and now offer an additional location option (Atlanta)

UPDATE: The wiki went bye-bye, don't know why. Look at post 5 for most of what was in there.

UPDATE: I just found a code that seems to give you almost the same deal at $30, 2GBYR
More info from Kevin:
to clarify about the $30/yr deal. It is valid for the "Enterprise" plan listed here: http://urlhasbeenblocked.net/openvz.html. It only includes 1x IP, and is only valid for our Chicago, Buffalo, and LA location (Not Atlanta). The $40/yr STEALOFADEAL offer is separate order links like I gave you earlier, and includes 2 IP addresses. It is also available in our new location Atlanta.

This is not technically a repost, because the other thread about this particular deal got deleted. The STEALOFADEAL offer actually costs $10 more than the previous deals, and it comes with 2 IP addresses.

2048MB (2GB) Dedicated Ram
50 GB Diskspace
2TB Monthly Bandwidth
100Mbps Port
2x IPv4 Address with STEALOFADEAL
1x IPv4 Address with 2GBYR code, but $10 less, but no Atlanta
SolusVM/OpenVZ
Instant Setup (most of the time)
Free Backups
3 or 4 Location Choices: Los Angeles, Chicago, Buffalo, (Atlanta on the $40 code)

$40/year with promo code "STEALOFADEAL" & 2 IP addresses
Order in Chicago, IL - https://billing.chicagovps.net/ca...dd&pid=160
Order in Buffalo, NY - https://billing.chicagovps.net/ca...dd&pid=161
Order in Los Angeles, CA - https://billing.chicagovps.net/ca...dd&pid=162
Order in Atlanta, GA - https://billing.chicagovps.net/ca...dd&pid=163

$30/yr deal. with 1 IP address and no Atlanta
http://urlhasbeenblocked.net/openvz.html - Choose Enterprise, 1 year recurring


The promo code to use is STEALOFADEAL or 2GBYR- over $200+ in savings Just be sure to select the 12 month billing cycle when ordering then on the next page you will find the option to enter in the promo code. This price doesn't go up after the year is up either.

When signing up, use an easy password, and change it later. Some folks had trouble with complicated password during signup.

Disclaimer: I don't work for, nor am I anyway associated with urlhasbeenblocked. I have one VPS with this company, and I paid $40 for it. They aren't giving me anything. Yes, I know they should, but they haven't. shake head

What is this, you may ask? It is an online Linux computer that you have root access to, and can install and run practically anything. Read the TOS, 'cause that doesn't include P2P sharing, folding, bit coin mining, seti stuff, and anything else stupid like that, that might kill the performance for everyone else.

Anyways, like I said, you get root access to a Linux box, and when you screw that up, no problem, they give you a control panel that lets you reinstall a new OS in minutes. Pretty cool. With a small effort, you can even vnc into it with a full GUI.

Don't expect the world from this, you get more than you pay for. Think twice before you bet your business on this, although I think there are people that do.

Has anyone figured out what firewall settings to use when running a PPTP server?
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/tech/t...46ef.shtml

Q. What ports should I open on a firewall in order to accommodate PPTP tunnels?
A. Open these ports.
TCP/1723
IP Protocol/47 GRE


I'd personally try it with just 1723 open and see if it works first before opening GRE.

FYI, My network buddies all say PPTP is horribly outdated and broken, easy to hack into.

Really? Seriously? You think these sinister, nefarious people you seem to think are populating this thread would all be using the same IP if they were shills?

And — that it's apparently an impossible concept that people new to SD might find a deal that looked good on here and then sign up for SD?
I for one think so. Especially because of the past history of the threads and when you go through them it's the same 10 people talking about how great the service is and that they are going to buy another package!!! Nobody gets this excited over a web host.

I put in a mod alert last night asking admins what was the deal with the thread and if it was violating some policy or something...

Still no response, rather unusual as they usually answer and close mod alerts with a few hours.
Probably because CVPS_Kevin was posting here and the entire thread became and advertising session for urlhasbeenblocked.

My shared hosting plan was about to renew in a week and I was trying to find a decent VPS to switch to since I kept maxing out the CPU 20 times a day, so I was pretty excited to find one with better specs for half of what I was paying. Maybe you don't get excited about hosting, but I don't think it's fair to say that no one does. Maybe some of the people were shills...I don't know, but I do know that I'm a real human who had never heard of SlickDeals OR urlhasbeenblocked before I followed a link to that thread.

Maybe people don't get excited about a web host, but plenty of people get excited about a Slick Deal Wink Case in point: any front page thread, especially ones around Black Friday. You have to keep in mind that this isn't just a web host people are getting excited about. It's quite a deal.

Also, accusations that people are here to secretly represent Chicago VPS is ridiculous. Some of the people who post positive reviews include people like me and the OP who have been on SD for years, have a high post count, and a high rep count. It's a little improbable that all of these people were hired by Chicago VPS to post positive reviews, especially when some of us have been here on Slickdeals BEFORE urlhasbeenblocked.net was even registered laugh out loud

I signed up this morning and when I look under "My Services" it still say's "Pending" as the status. Is this normal, or should I have instant access to my VPS?

I paid last night and it still says Pending for me too. I put in a ticket and am waiting for a response.

If I just want to be able to host multiple small websites, is this VPS solution too complicated? (i.e. would I have to do all the management myself, or will urlhasbeenblocked install a simple control panel and have it be pretty much on auto pilot?)

It is not auto-pilot by any means. You will be provided with a minimal install of Linux and the rest if up to you. If you have no Linux experience, or desire to learn, this is not for you.
You will also have to pay extra for cPanel, if that's what you want, to host your sites.
You will have 100% responsibility of security and backups.

It is 100% on you.

It's definitely not as easy as shared hosting. I was coming from a shared host, where all you have to do is add a domain, use fantastico to install WordPress, put their nameservers in GoDaddy, and poof....instant website.

This is a big change, but I figured most of it out without too much trouble. You will probably want to install a control panel - if you want cPanel which is probably what you're used to, that costs $10 a month to license, whereas it's included in most shared hosting accounts. There are a bunch of free control panels though — I went with zPanel which seems to be pretty well supported and gets frequent updates, and as the name suggests includes a lot of the functionality cPanel has. Installing it is pretty easy, but that's something you will need to do yourself. You'll probably also want to install a firewall, which again — you'll need to do yourself. Support from urlhasbeenblocked is going to be very limited — if the problem is on their end, they'll probably fix it, but they won't be able to walk you through setting everything up.

If you have a week or so to figure out what you're doing, this could be a great deal to go for, but if you like to be able to sit back and relax and have everything ready in just a few clicks...you'd be better off sticking with shared hosting.

I would jump on this so fast if there was a MS Windows server option (*ducks*). I would pay a little more a year for the option too.

Windows vs Linux fanboy opinions aside...

That is not the smartest thing, mostly due to RAM usage. It's much higher in Windows than Linux, generally. Plus, the license fee for Windows.

What are you looking to do in Windows that you can not or do not want to do in Linux?

It probably came down to money (like most things). My theory is that the thread generated a lot of business for urlhasbeenblocked and there was a dispute on the commission (or lack of).

I got two VPS and my only regret is that I paid $40 versus $30. I have no use for the second IP address.
