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.

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.
Yes, you are doing something wrong. You can't put in NS1.(IP_ADDRESS). That doesn't make any sense and wouldn't work.

If you are going to host your own NS servers for a domain, you need to create a host record for NS1 and NS2 (or whatever name you want) with your registrar (ie: namecheap). You will tell them that NS1.DOMAIN.COM = the IP of your box. Repeat for NS2 with the other IP.

Then, for the authoritative NS servers for your domain, you would use ns1.domain.com and ns2.domain.com.

Yeah that's what I thought.

So I just did what you said, but do I have to change the DNS settings for ZPanel? Do I make ns1.domain.tld = main IP and ns2.domain.tld = other IP in ZPanel as well?

I've never used zPanel so I have no idea. I use bind (which is probably what zPanel uses under the hood), but just configure it manually.

I'm sure someone else with zPanel experience can assist you with that part.

Well do you know whether zpanel is the easiest for first timers? Talking about free here. I've used cPanel before and it was easy and simple, but I don't wanna pay monthly.

Make sure you change the setting on the DNS page on urlhasbeenblocked. I was doing it from zpannel but nothing happened. Then I found out I had to goto the "DNS" where you manage your servers and enter the information.

1) Make sure your NS records point to the correct nameservers in my case it is (ns4.urlhasbeenblocked.net, ns5.urlhasbeenblocked.net,etc..)

2) Create your A records:
---1)ns1.yourdomainname.com---IP address provided by CVPS
---2)ns2.yourdomainname.com---IP address provided by CVPS
---3)mail.yourdomainname.com--IP
---4) yourdomain.com---------------IP
---5)www--------------------------------IP

3) Add your MX record.

Make sure that you register the nameserver first. By the way, it's not you, the NameCheap nameserver registration is (expletive) (expletive) stupid.

Make sure you're first signed in, mouseover Domains, and click My Domains in the upper right of that dropdown box.
In the main window, check the domain you would like to establish NS for, then click Edit Selected >>

On the left hand side, directly under Advanced Options is Nameserver Registration, click that.

Then choose the prefix type that you'd like to use, and then type in the IP address of where it will be going to. NS# is pretty much the standard operating method.

That should pretty much do it on the DNS Records end, but make sure that when you get to your server, (and I can't speak for zPanel, sorry) that you've got your BIND set up properly on that main hosting domain account, because all other domains that you create should use that as the parent domain.

I tried Kloxo for a bit, and it's ... okay. Certainly has a lot of the visuals and experience similar to somebody coming from a cPanel, whether you'll have resellers or just other direct clients, they can have their own logins and go do their thing. However, I second the Webmin/VirtualMin setup. It's not fancy by any means, but if you're the guy doing the hosting, their scripts are pretty damn good. With a name/description/domain, you can pretty much have a domain hosted in 30 seconds, supposing they're already pointing to your nameserver.

So after last nights move, my VPS seems to be in much better shape, yes I went to a new NODE and yes I got a new IP. All my data is in place and I`m not getting any packet loss (very very minor) pages load very fast and access to VPS is flawless.

So to recap they did take care of my issue and customer service is pretty good ! Lets see how we do further.

Would that be better than ZPanel and webmin? I was going to install webmin alongside ZPanel, but if VirtualMin really is better then I'll move.

Also, how do I delete ZPanel?

Okay I got a bit confused here. What I understood from reading thinkfire's post is that you don't add anything on the DNS settings in the urlhasbeenblocked control panel. What I did right now is exactly what the guy I'm quoting below said. I have done all of that and went into ZPanel and made the DNS settings as follows: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/40710/DNS.PNG

Not sure if this is correct, but when I ping my domain name now through command prompt on my own PC, I get a response back and it shows the IP of the server.

However, I tried creating a subdomain through ZPanel and I can't seem to be able to ping that, so I think I'm still doing something wrong.

I figured that out earlier as I stated right above this, except for the BIND part. Not sure what that is or where I can configure it from.

This is a second recommendation for VirtualMin. Is it really easier? I don't plan on using this a reseller or anything of the sorts. I'm using this to host one or two websites and maybe some other servers later on if I need to.

I can't vouch for easier. Some people build Mustangs, some build Corvettes, some build Honduhs... it's just what you know, I suppose. For me, I like VirtualMin because it's simple and light (mem usage/heavily featured) and easy to script how I want it. I'm doing it to host family friends that I've been hosting for... too long now. The simple scripts set up the server how I would, which without it, I'm fully capable of (and I greatly prefer) doing things through the command line, but just don't feel like it.

I'd give Kloxo a try, which depending on where you're located, they have it imaged/packaged together. If they don't, it's a very simple install of like, 4 commands. -- http://wiki.lxcenter.org/Kloxo+In...tion+Guide -- Since this is positioned to compete with a cPanel, it has a bunch of installer scripts to content management systems, blogs, boards, photo galleries, etc.. Just as easy to install, but more for those who enjoy graphical web management interfaces.

Worst case, you can quickly re-image the server and try the other.

As to your issue with subdomains, there may be a chance that those changes aren't being published in a timely basis, so while you're expecting them to be almost live (which they can't), it might be a timed script, or one that you have to commit yourself.

From a command prompt, you could try service named restart which you may have to run as root/su.

Okay, few questions.

1. How do I image the server?

2. How do I delete ZPanel?

Check through your sign-up e-mails, but there is a special area where you can connect in, and wipe/reinstall the machine. They've got like CentOS, Debian, Gentoo, Slackware, and Ubuntu, and I believe some of the CentOS images come pre-configured with Kloxo.

If not, you could certainly choose CentOS 5.8/9 and do it yourself, it's pretty simple, even easier with that guide. By re-imaging the server, you've wiped out any trace of ZPanel, and anything else for that matter.

You could also put in a ticket with the urlhasbeenblocked staff, they're pretty good and helpful with things like that.

Has anyone gotten Google Chrome to work in Ubuntu 12.04? Clicking the icon to start it once installed does nothing. The process is running through. Same issue with Chromium. Looks like it might be an OpenVZ issue.

Oh nvm, I thought you meant creating an image of my current VPS in case I want to come back to it later on.

Just use namecheap's free DNS service. It works well and then you don't have to deal with the hassle of managing yet another service. Smilie
