Deal Details

Last Edited by widgit March 20, 2013 at 04:41 PM
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.

If you're on osx:

windows:
* http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/
you can then basically run any GUI based application through ssh on your local box in an environment you're already comfortable with. it gives you the best of both worlds... being in a GUI you know and running applications as if you're on the remote server. the cool thing about doing this is you're not trying to run an intense 1024x768 window @ 16/32bit color with the latency from their location to yours... while minor (30ms-70ms) its still noticable... it's easier to use the above methods... once you get it running it's pretty awesome and should fit 99% of what people need to do if they're buying a $40/y option. this should also make applications pretty snappy since you're only using resources required for individual applications vs. running a full blow kde/gnome/etc environment.

Has anyone setup a PPTP server via CL? I just have the base Ubuntu 10.04 installed and followed various tutorials for pptpd, but can't for the life of me connect. I imagine there must be some routing issue, has anyone figured this out?
I've setup openvpn , but not PPTP. I wanted to setup ipsec initially, but it seems like openvz doesn't have the support for the ipsec module.

This might be a dumb question, but did you enable ppp via the control panel? It's one of the options on the bottom.

Yup, I enabled PPP. Ironically I got openVPN working which is supposed to be more difficult, but it was slow so I wanted to try PPTP. I'm also having nightmares setting up the mail server, but I think that's on the registrar side.

Amazing how easy the webserver is in comparison.

So... I really don't want to do server administration, I just want to run a dozen or two low traffic and 2 moderate traffic sites. Do they have a managed server option? I would rather that they install updates and manage security for me since I know that I do not have the time to do a thorough job myself. I would rather not provide yet another honeypot to the dregs of the net.

I am coming from dreamhost shared hosting which uses a proprietary hosting control panel so I am not really familiar. Does cpanel allow OS level server management options?
This isn't going to be for you then. I don't think they have a management option. Unless you want to take the time to learn to use this, you're better off with shared hosting.

The last time I tried I was using apf for the firewall. Only opening 1723 lets the initial authentication but no traffic passes and the connection ends since the GRE traffic is blocked. I could not figure out how to open GRE with apf and no one is even approving my posts on the apf page asking for help.

I see you posted about using ufw in another post. Does ufw work now? The last time I tried is was not compatible with OpenVZ containers. There's some hacks [bodhizazen.net] you can do. But even them it's only partly functional.
What is the setting in ufw to allow GRE?
I found an article on it...

Has anyone gotten Plex Media Server to work on their VPS? I got it installed, but can't find out how to specify folders for the library. It can't seem to locate my folders. Must be an ownership issue or something.

I installed it while logged in as root. I might try to reinstall as a user later.

Anyone having issues with ubuntu 11.04, and UFW? First off, I had to download and install it myself. Second, it will not enable!

When i do ufw enable, I get "ERROR: Could not load logging rules.

Suggestions?
In the previous thread that was deleted there was a link that showed how to get UFW working under OpenVZ. Basically you had to change some configs and disable a few items. Worked for me. Below is the link:

It's a shame, if I could get Atlanta for the $30/month, I'd probably pick that up to colo my $40/mo Chicago server.

If you install Virtualmin, you can tell it to update automatically the OS and related software when packages are available in the repo. I told mine to install security updates right away to minimize the attack surface but minimize the chances of something breaking, and then I manually update other stuff as I have time to deal with it. That's usually the next time I need to use Virtualmin or Webmin on the server. It only takes about a minute of work.

Virtualmin also makes it easy to add new websites to your server.

I went with the NY location and I got my login details a few seconds after placing the order. It sounds like some people here are having to wait longer, but I don't know what locations they ordered. I'm thinking about ordering a second one in a different location to play around with, so I'd also be interested to know if the other locations are being setup instantly
Quote from rweavere View Post :
I submitted a support ticket about my server not being up yet at urlhasbeenblocked and they immediately emailed back saying that it was up now, that they were out of IPs, that's why it wasn't instant.
Hi Guys,

I hope its fine that I respond to any direct questions/concerns anyone has to us here, as others said Credit Karma is doing this and additionally I've previously been told by a mod that this was perfectly fine. If this has since changed (I see nothing in the site rules about this), any moderator is free to contact me via PM or email.

rweavere and adventurenick -- to clarify, all locations are now instant setup, we did have some issues with Chicago yesterday running out of IPs but we are all set now and all pending orders should be installed momentarily.

Thanks,

Kevin
