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.

With the $40 deal, you get 1 VPS that has 2 IP pointed to it. You cannot install for example Ubuntu for 1 IP and Debian on the other IP.

I think he meant two minecraft servers.

It should be technically possible (assuming the minecraft server can bind to a specific IP/interface), but I don't know if you'd get acceptable performance with two running simultaneously. Though I guess if you only have a couple of users it might be alright...
yes 2 minecraft servers, sorry for the confusion

Quote from daniel32 View Post :
I hope he is not on my node with those minecraft servers LMAOLMAO

so far everything is good (including performance and network speeds)
Quote from kcobra View Post :
Looks like Minecraft server has the following setting in server.properties:

server-ip: Set this if you want the server to bind to a particular IP.

So running a Minecraft server on each IP with the default port should not be a problem.
Quote from urlhasbeenblocked-Kevin View Post :
Yes, you'll be able to run multiple Minecraft server instances under different IPs.
Thanks everyone. Yea, i don't anticipate them being amazing performance while running two but was really more interested in a part-time test environment without having to take down the full time main.

If your IP has to change, that's not a big deal. You can easily update any NS records and/or system configuration. Also, if it stays in the same DC, it's likely they could keep the same IP and move you to a different node.

Also, one of the key benefits of a VPS is the ability to move them from one host to another. This happens all the time.

The NODE that I know is normal is in a different VLAN so IP has to change.... They did find another host in the same subnet and planing to move me to it, so we will see..... This has been really frustrating !

We should be able to get yozh migrated without an IP change as the node we are migrating him to is on the same VLAN. We'll continue to keep him updated via his support ticket Smilie

Yep, no problem. I believe you're already talking with one of our main technicians about this and its now being done, but I'll actively keep an eye on the ticket to ensure it's being taken care of properly.

Thanks!

So, for the last week I've been trying to get the IP address that came with the VPS unblocked by all the email providers because when I reply to people emailing me, my replies get bounced back by their email provider. If you've ever done this, you know what a real pita it is, because you have to contact each of them directly using their awful forms.

Apparently the IP I was assigned was used for some serious spamming before it found its way to me. rDNS is set, but the messages are all still being returned because of a permanent IP block. Frown

Did you submit a ticket? CVPS should help you with that.

Or have you contacted the entity that blacklisted you? This is not the email provider you are trying to email.

That sucks. I've been lucky with mine, although Yahoo has been a pain in the ass for the past 15 or so years, and they'll only really let your stuff go until after you find a little advertised page to beg one of their mailadmin/support to take a look at your messages. They say that they look at all the mail coming across in the system and try to figure out your spam score, but who really knows.

I've found that Gmail and Hotmail are pretty good about things starting off, although they will often direct your first one to bulk/spam if your account is named testing@ or you say a bunch of worthless things in your test mail.

I've had a generally pleasant experience for the past month, but we'll see how things go with what appear to be routing problems with an upstream provider. Going on about 8 hours of 150-200K/s, and saw some good ol' 28.8 speeds uploading a site last night.

edit:
I'm the type that looks for silver lining, and when faced with downtime in uploading a site, you look real hard at that FTP/SCP window. "What? 87Kb? That picture?" You'll start to play with the image compression, finding the sweet spot just before it starts to cloud/fuzz, and with that, achieve a much leaner build with amazing pageloads.

... I well know and understand that they're not Linode, and I know that Buffalo to Tokyo isn't common, because if it was, I'd get a server certainly much closer, but this is just the first one in my list of speed test server locations. It's been 10 hours and counting, and it's getting worse by the hour. I should be happy that the server is even up in the first place, so, it certainly could be worse... but it just feels like I'm going to find out how much.

edit3:
Almost there, certainly usable compared to the timeouts and sub-100's before.

and yes, routing sucks. I had a similar problem with Time Warner who has a pretty solid foundation in San Diego, but believe bought Adelphia's lines in North County. Not sure if it is still this way, but Adelphia did a shit job, and I think at some point, Time Warner gave up with trying to unfark it. What was maybe 15-20 miles turned into them routing all over the world, and to my recollection, the only time I've seen a traceroute hit high 30.

Some email providers use third party services like Cloudmark for IP reputation — so far these have been easy to deal with because they actual respond quickly when you fill out their forms.

AOL & Yahoo have the IP permanently blocked themselves and to get it unblocked you have to contact their postmaster: I've filled out their ancient forms and hopefully they will get it sorted out. I don't need to send out bulk email, but it's a real annoyance when someone with an AOL or Yahoo email address emails me and I can't reply.

The IP address doesn't seem to be on any of the 3rd party DNS based blacklists I've searched, so it must have been used for spamming quite a while ago. If I can't get it sorted out I'll see if CVPS can assign another IP, but short of checking all the searchable blacklists, I'm not sure how they could verify that it wouldn't have the same issue with AOL & Yahoo who are blocking the IP directly themselves and not through any searchable blacklist databases.

It's not the end of the world, but like others, I've been sharing my experiences with the service so far. Otherwise the experience has been very good and the site I'm hosting loads very quickly.

Whenever I've had to deal with IP routing/blacklist/etc. issues, the easiest course of action is to simply change your IP and make it someone else's problem. Instead of wasting hours and hours and days and weeks trying to escalate issues with various providers to try and get them to understand, let alone fix, a problem, and IP change can take a few minutes to resolve the issue altogether.

For example, one of our customers had a Comcast Business circuit that was having major routing issues. Long story short, things from FL to FL were being sent to CA (after a long and arduous route across the US). The problem seemed to stem from other providers, but could have just been a RA issue on Comcast's part. Instead of wasting my time in futility trying to explain this to Tiers 1-10 of each provider until I got a real engineer on the phone (if that would even be possible), I just had Comcast gives us a new /29. Problem solved in under 30 minutes, including network changes on our side.

I believe zPanel does that - yes. Same with other control panels such as Kloxo and Virtualmin.

To register your own nameservers you'll need to register "child nameservers" (or referred to as "host summary" in Godaddy) to have ns1 and ns2 point to your VPS IP.
Quote from thinkfire View Post :
I got my approvals. Pointed my domain to my nameservers ns1 and ns2.

Deleted all entries in CVPS DNS Manager

created a test.domain.tld

success!

zpanel is managing my DNS for me now. Yay. Getting somewhere. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, reps to those that chimed in.
Can you guys help me a bit over here. I'm using namecheap.com instead of godaddy.

So what I did is went to my namecheap and edited the DNS info to point to ns1.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx and ns2.xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx where x's represent the IP address of my server.

I also added the domain in zpanel. Something tells me I'm doing something wrong.
