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:

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.

just follow the tutorial i posted above.
Yes, 100% so. I've done it with my site BIKWEB [bikweb.com]. You can do many things with urlhasbeenblocked. Also, suggest that you skip the c-panel and go with zpanel. Much lighter on your server.

I have had a VPS with them since November with this plan. They mainly use xeon e3 based servers which only support 32gb of memory max. The nodes are obviously oversold and I/O at times is dreadful. You do not want to have anything important on these servers. I've definitely been getting my moneys worth but just keep this in mind and always have backups.

The speed has been very good for me so far — I'm running a large wordpress based site and W3TC and cloudflare reduces the CPU usage and loading times considerably as well. You can also run MaxCDN in addition to these for an even bigger boost. Switching from a shared hosting environment to this definitely had a noticeable speed increase

I got my host setup in about 15 minutes including a full joomla backup from ipage.com hosting. Everything worked flawlessly. As far as speed it's blazing compared to ipage who I wouldn't recommend. I'm waiting for ipage to propagate the subdomains since they still hold the domain, but this is the direct site:

anthonymandra.com/joomla [anthonymandra.com]

should eventually be rawdroid.anthonymandra.com [anthonymandra.com]

Kephael,

I'm very sorry to hear about that! Unfortunately when you have nearly 200 physical servers across 4 different locations, sometimes things do slip through and issues can happen, but when they do we are generally very quick to react against them to prevent performance issues.

I'm just very surprised to hear about this, because we do monitor our servers 24x7 and have alerts set up, and if you were following the previous thread pretty much all members were very satisfied and reported excellent performance, same with this thread and even on this page.

It's definitely not normal. Please open a ticket to our support department to the attention of Kevin, and I will be more than happy to personally work with you on this and see what exactly is going on.

Thanks!

Kevin

Here's the steps I took to setup PPTP. Numbers are the actual commands:

I used nano, it's an editor, your can replace with any editor (vi, etc).
should be the ip of your sever
  1. apt-get install pptpd
  2. sudo nano /etc/ppp/pptpd-options
    Comment (#)
    • refuse-pap
    • refuse-chap
    • refuse-mschap
    Edit DNS entries (Google)
    • ms-dns 208.67.222.222
    • ms-dns 208.67.220.220
  3. sudo nano /etc/pptpd.conf
    At the end of the file modify:
    • localip
    • remoteip 10.99.99.100-199
  4. sudo nano /etc/ppp/chap-secrets
    Create your pptpd user:
    (ex: user pptpd password *)
  5. sudo /etc/sysctl.conf
    Uncomment (#)
    • net.ipv4.ip_forward=1
  6. sudo sysctl -p
  7. sudo iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -j SNAT --to-source
  8. sudo iptables-save
  9. /etc/init.d/pptpd restart

Note: At some point I did this in failed attempts, not sure it's necessary (I'm going to try removing it shortly):

mknod /dev/ppp c 108 0 (The 0 is zero)
chmod 600 /dev/ppp

I may have missed something since this was my umpteenth attempt that I actually got it working and I'm not sure I backed out of all the steps of the previous attempts.

I saw this thread and emailed them to change and remove 1 IP from my account, but no go Frown specially sad that IPs are going for 50 cents each.

I installed ZPanel with no issues. Thumbs up for urlhasbeenblocked. So far - my site (www.bikweb.com) is up and running with zero downtime in the last 4 days. They are also fast in responding to tickets. I'm thinking of purchasing a 2nd VPS with them.
Weird, when I click on this I get "This page has been hacked, This page has been hacked, This page has been hacked" over and over and over...Why would you want it to say that?















LOL I'm just kidding, site's is fine Smilie
