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.

I am seriously very skeptical of their service now. I am on VPS11 of their LA location. I experience pretty often downtime. And my server is currently down for two hours....
Unfortunately I am on vps11 in LA as well. Has been down for a few hours, and packet loss since yesterday.

Can't even log in to the ticketing system to report it as I get a 404

I am able to log in their ticketing system. But, as you might have expected, no one responds anyways....

Same issue in LA. My network was perfect when I had a test VPN up for slickdeals members to check out but ever since I took it down I had over 3 hours of downtime... Will ask to be moved soon or I'll ask for a refund.

Edit - appears to be from low memory... My vps is only using 400mb consistently...
I heard there was no refunds?

I was able to mostly follow these instructions and get pptp to work with ufw.

First, you need to apply the ufw [bodhizazen.net] hacks to get it to work.

The instructions on this page are a bit garbled about what to put in /etc/ufw/before.rules. I put in
Code:
# NAT table rules
*nat
:POSTROUTING ACCEPT [0:0]
# Allow forward traffic to venet0:0
-A POSTROUTING -j SNAT --to-source <VPS ip_address>

# Process the NAT table rules
COMMIT
This has a side effect though. Everytime to enable ufw it will add the SNAT rule to iptables. It never gets removed so you'll have duplicate rules until you reboot.

No idea why domain is not showing up.

I switched DNS to nsX,urlhasbeenblocked.net (X= 4,5,6, or 7) with my registrar and also setup these DNS within the control panel but nothing.

No refunds?

After a 4 hour (and still counting) downtime today I think they should hand out a refund. Either they do it, or I will have my credit card company do it.

Their policy said no refunds, but Kevin did mention they will consider case by case. As far as downtime guarantees go, most companies have a policy of issuing credit for downtime, not refunds for downtime.

Your domain doesn't show up automatically if you change the name servers. You still have to setup your VPS with LAMP if it wasn't already done then add DNS records to your VPS for your domain.

Yeah, and most of those credit policies are worthless. For example, a company might say "We guarantee 99.99% uptime and will give you a prorated credit if we exceed this!". That might sound great until you do the math.

If you assume 30days * 24hours * 60mins in a month (43,200 minutes), that only allows for 4.32 minutes of downtime to meet the 99.99% uptime guarantee. Let's say a box is down for 8 hours - that obviously is bad and exceeds the guarantee by 475.68 minutes. But when you look at the proration credit, it's worthless. Since you only paid $3.33/month for this VPS, the fact that they had 1.11% of downtime means you would get a credit for about $0.04. This doesn't just go for CVPS - in fact I don't think they have a published credit for downtime policy - it's just a standard BS policy amongst all providers. Unless you have a high level contract with set SLAs and penalties for failing to deliver on them, the provider doesn't have to pay you squat. Hell, even if you were paying $100/month for a server, that would only equate to a little over $1 in credit.

LAMP has nothing to do with DNS resolution. First, you don't even need the MP part of LAMP unless your site requires PHP and/or MySQL - Apache can work just fine on it's own to host a basic site. But if your DNS is configured correctly, the IP should still resolve even if none of that is running.

However, DNS changes are not instantaneous. When you change a domain's NS record, it can take hours (or more) for it to fully propagate. Even A/MX/etc. records on the same NS server can take a while if they were cached by other DNS servers.

Yes, you're right that you won't need LAMP to host a DNS. However, I'm assuming typical users will probably check to see if their site is resolving by visiting it.

You'll probably need to add something in
/etc/ufw/after.rules

kevin who? i think he has disappeared.

again, as i said since beginning, only scammers will promise too-good-too-be-true (including all gamers are welcome) statements.

they promised 99.999% uptime. so if they can't get that to work, then we can just dispute via credit card. if they dont give any refund, they will have have to pay alot more via dispute.
