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.

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.
What signin info (to the box) do you use when using plex? If an actual user name (not root) than that's your problem Smilie

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.
Well this is rather disconcerting, since I vaguely recall in the previous thread Kevin specifically saying that the 2gb of ram is dedicated to the customer, thereby implying that ram itself isn't oversold. I didn't even think to put two and two together to make that cognitive leap... if true when he said "we stop when the node is 'full'", that would mean they only put a max of 16 customers on a node (assuming they don't mix & match customer tiers)?

It's no wonder why they have been so evasive when repeatedly asked about their provising practices.

Still, I'm not complaining terribly much. For the price, as long as you go into it thinking "Shared hosting with benefits...", it's still hard to beat.

I installed Plex Media Server as root. Then signed into myplex, if that's what you are referring to. I'm not sure where I should store my media files to allow Plex to find it. One of the options was /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc Confused I was hoping to use a subdirectory in /home, /media, or /root but they aren't options.

No hosting provider will ever tell you exactly how many shared/reseller/vps accounts are on a server. The value will vary from server to server so that's hard to answer alone. Also, hosts typically oversell servers a bit, just like airlines oversell flights. If done properly, there should never be an issue. That's a pretty lengthy subject that I won't get into, but I hope that gives you a bit of an idea.

10+ IPs for $0.50/IP/year. Yes, they hate me now.
That's 10 IPs for $0.50/IP/month, not per year. Stick Out Tongue

We won't honor that pricing unless you're looking to purchase at least 10 IPs, like the OP of that thread wanted. Our typical rate for additional IPs is $2/month per IP so the additional $10/year on this deal ($30/year for 1 IP vs $40/year for 2 IPs) is something worth considering, because typically we charge $2/m per IP and with IPv4 depletion becoming more and more common other providers are charging $2-3 per IP per month.

Even if you may not have an immediate need for the additional IP, its still always good to have in case you may need it for whatever reason down the line. What do you guys use your additional IP for?

Thanks,

Kevin

Well, I personally use mine to scratch my head about what I need an additional IP for. Considering you ran out of IPs at one of your locations, why not offer to roll back to the $30 single IP plan?

I use the second ip as a way to make sure people can't track different services to the same machine. For example, I don't want people on slickdeals to know my real name, which might be on a business site I have on one ip. I want to post a link here. Sure I could use a virtual server but it would point to the same ip, so when you do a reverse dns query, it tells you the machine is server.me.com, and now you know who I am!

I put the second ip here which I don't have reverse dns setup on, and you have no way to track it back to my business site (unless you hack the server I guess).

Other uses are running different servers on the same port (say you want nginx and apache to both listen on port 80).

but having said all that, the second ip isn't necessary for most things, and I probably would have gotten the $30 single IP plan myself :-)

I`m even offering to prepay next year if I can get the IP remove now and roll back to 30$/year single IP account. I dont really need it, I know uses for it, but I dont need it.

You cannot dedicated memory on OpenVZ. The VPS container uses it as it needs to unlike on Xen or KVM where it reserves the memory (it is possible to inflate the memory on Xen, but that is something different). It is very common for VPS providers to oversell their nodes, it can be done properly. If they did not oversell with the prices they charge they would be massively unprofitable. "Full" does not mean 32GB of memory has been allocated but the server is at "capacity" for the customers on the node. My issues have not ever been memory related as far as I can tell, but I/O related. I work for a managed hosting provider and am very familiar with OpenVZ and SolusVM. I definitely find the service to be an excellent value, but just keep in mind there are certain limitations to it.

Ordered earlier in the week on the previous deal and set up a server. Everything was great until this morning when I came home to check my system status and it is offline. Logged into my control panel to check the status and it is offline. Tried booting with no luck. Status still offline. This is a pain.

Edit: support ticket submitted and I'm on the LA server.

Edit 2: back online now.

Uhm.... You just killed your 'plan' of being anonymous by giving away the details of it.

You were assigned two sequential IPs from CVPS. Let's call them 10.1.1.1 and 10.1.1.2 for simplicities sake. According to your post, you have a personally identifiable RDNS on 10.1.1.1 and nothing configured (RDNS wise) for 10.1.1.2. So your plan is to use 10.1.1.1 for company/personal/etc. stuff and 10.1.1.2 for things on Slickdeals where you don't want people to know who you are. So you create www.imhidden.com and point that to 10.1.1.2 and use that for URLs on links you post to SD.

So now, since you told us your plan, we can just do an nslookup on www.imhidden.com, see it resolves to 10.1.1.2, then look at the IP address immediately before that (ie: 10.1.1.1) and do an RDNS lookup on that and see who you really are.

No server hackng required.

Except that I don't have consecutive IPs :-). As I understand, some people that signed up got 2 consecutive IPs, but others have non-consecutive ones.

And I guess since you can't guarantee that a person may or may not have consecutive IPs, this does give some measure of protection even to those that got consecutive IPs.

But anyway as I said, I am stretching a bit to come up with a reason for having 2 ips.

Sounds like you're kind of wasting your breath with flawed logic.
Using a private IP pool is a bad example for RDNS.

You also don't have an indication of which end will be the same server, or if you're just banging on the door of someone else's. The ones on my VPS are non sequential.
