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:
* http://sourceforge.net/projects/xming/
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.

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.
Maybe for the first 30-60 days, but after that point most if not all credit card companies won't let you file a dispute. That's why I always am hesitant about paying for services so far upfront. CVPS, or any company, could offer great annual deals for a cheap price, collect a years worth of fees, then close the doors in 4 months with little recourse to the customers.

Thanks,

Kevin

I'm having segmentation faultsts and memory allocation errors when i do anything with apt-get. I've put in 2 tickets since thus morning, no responses.

Ticket 559883 was one of them.

edit: just got responses saying my OS is corrupt from trying to upgrade it, even though thus started before attempting to upgrade. I'm a noob, it that sounds like memory issues to me.

And why us Ubuntu 12.04 not available on the CP for the Chicago sever?

I thought I looked afterward and I don't think I saw Ubuntu 12.04 on any of them, but I could be wrong. I know it's not available in the LA data center.

You'll probably need to add something in
/etc/ufw/after.rules
Thanks for the hint, but I need slightly more direction than that.
According to the documentation the before rules are applied, then the user rules, then after rules. Are you saying if I move the rules from before to after it will only appear once?

The thing that seems to be missing is that disabling ufw does not remove the nat rules.

I have Ubuntu 12.04 on my LA vps.
It is not a choice during the initial setup when you sign up. But, if you press reinstall in your control panel, you'll see it as a choice.
I think this is dependent on the kernel version in the host node.

Kevin from CVPS (unless I remembered his name wrong).

Most scammers aren't registered with the BBB [bbb.org].

I believe it is a 99.9% uptime guarantee, not 99.999%. While I haven't read through their policy recently, I'm sure they give prorated credit for downtime, as phonic explained. If they give the credit promised, I'm not sure how you'll win a dispute if you legitimately signed up and a service was provided (or adequately compensated if not provided).

The Chicago servers don't have the option in the CP like the others do for some reason.

I used mtr, and 0% lost packets from me to my Buffalo VPS...

You can check my machine if you want: clicq.crabdance.com.

Here's another IP in Buffalo from another VPS provider, but same data center: 192.227.135.130

I dont get it, must be me or my ISP (cablevision).

Are you coming in via telia.net to colocrossing.com ?

My last hop before VPS Node is host.colocrossing.com [198.12.124.166] to which I have no issues, no packet loss or anything... low latency about 24 ms... but after that 2 hops, which is the NODE and then my VPS.


Ping statistics for 198.12.124.166:
Packets: Sent = 205, Received = 205, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 18ms, Maximum = 37ms, Average = 22ms


14 33 ms 44 ms 31 ms host.colocrossing.com [xxx.xxx.135.x]
15 35 ms 29 ms 30 ms server1.XXXXX.com [xx.xx.135.xx]

Thats where my drops are

14. host.colocrossing.com 4.0%
15. server1.xxxxxxxxxx.com 1.2%


Ping statistics for xxx.xxx.135.xx (NODE IP):
Packets: Sent = 193, Received = 185, Lost = 8 (4% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 29ms, Maximum = 87ms, Average = 33ms

So it possible its me, but why before NODE its fine and to the NODE its not.

I am here guys - remember its the weekend. I don't work officially throughout the weekends, but because I am dedicated to clients I still occasionally work from home even when I'm not officially "on shift" and check up on things. I'm going to go through the past few pages and answer any questions now.

Just to clarify, my earlier comment was about 'uptime guarantee credits' in general, not about CVPS. I pointed out that AFAIK, CVPS has a "guarantee" but doesn't actually say what they will do for you if they don't meet it. This was a debated issue during the significant downtime in ATL a couple of weeks ago. As it turned out, Kevin (and CVPS) issued all affected customers a two month credit of service (so 14 for the price of 12). I thought that this was more than fair - assuming it isn't an ongoing issue, which it hasn't been so far.
