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.

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.

Any one else in NY BF DC still having issue after last night maintenance ?
I believe there was a minor issue with one of our cabinets after the maintenance, but this was resolved yesterday already.

Quote from bluemoldycheeze View Post :
Guess, I won't get it. Can't afford to have sites with downtime.
There was scheduled maintenance in our Buffalo datacenter Friday night. The maintenance was to upgrade our access layer switch in an effort to be IPv6 ready in the near future. All clients in Buffalo have received advanced notice about this. This was also posted on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/chicagov...0746503754

No other locations were affected, and the Buffalo maintenance is already fully complete.

Quote from microkelvin View Post :
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.
Kelvin, I am disappointed that you are able to jump to conclusions so quickly just because I do not respond here for one day. It is the weekend and I only "officially" work Monday to Friday. Like I said in my other post, I am committed to customers and still actively check up on things throughout the weekend, just don't expect instant responses over the weekend from me since I'm not actually in the office. If you have a problem with your service, open a ticket and a technician who's on the clock will respond to you fairly quickly.

Additionally please note that SlickDeals is not an official channel for support, and clients who have been communicating with us via our ticketing system would know that we are actively responding and have technicians on-site.

As SlickDeals is not an official channel for support, I only monitor SlickDeals when things aren't too busy, so if someone wants to receive fast support I urge using the proper channels (email or ticket) to receive a prompt response from one of our technicians (or even myself).

Quote from phonic View Post :
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.
Note that we are a registered company in New York, our parent company is New Wave NetConnect, LLC and we are BBB accredited: http://www.bbb.org/upstate-new-yo...235967102/

We have been in the hosting business for many years already and have an established track record, we are definitely not going anywhere and have been doing offers like this for quite some time already with very much success.

Quote from yozh View Post :
So there is definitely a network issue in Buffalo DC, I`m getting packet drops, not a lot, but noticeable, this is from.to VPS, can any one run mtr to/from your VPS in NY DC ? Are people getting packet loss as well ?
Hmm, 2-3 other customers in Buffalo already replied to you claiming they are not experiencing this. This leads me to believe this could be an isolated issue to your VPS - do you have a firewall installed on your VPS that could be rate limiting ICMP requests?

In any case please open a ticket and a member of our technical staff will investigate this further Smilie

Thanks,

Kevin

In any case, I guess as Kevin said, submit a ticket Smilie.

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).
i've learned a hard lesson from other hosting companies. if you sign up with any promotion, it's a done deal. if you ask for refund using any excuse (including their faults like slow data speed or cpu/ram resources), they will either do not refund you or will "gladly" refund your prorated credit....based on their regular rates.

for example, if their regular rate is $120/year. but you only paid $30/year. if you ask for prorated refund, they will respond something like you only paid us $30/year while the regular rate is $120/year. so if we refund you, you will owe us -$90 instead. we will be happy to refund you but based on our regular rate, you will owe us instead. do you still want to cancel your account? we will be happy to do that for you.

anyway, back to this service. i liked kevin at first. but not anymore since he promised any gamers are welcome. that really raised the flag. no hosting business can stay in business if they allow gamers without any extra charges. they are either overselling or plan some kind of scam.

back to our basic questions:
what can we do if the data speed is slow or alot of downtime?
what can we do if your vps servers are slow (due to overselling and gaming servers allowed)? what can we do if later on they define your website is using too much resources and banned your account? they can shut down your account with any "legitimate" reasons. using too much resources is the most common reason that i've seen.

another statement from kevin that couldn't pass the lie test is that he has hired a "full" staff to handle this business. as we all know. running a hosting service required a 24/7 monitoring. if his staff is not available during weekend, that means your website or your gaming server has no support during such time. i believe he did some hiring but not the scale of "full" like we think it is.

You wouldn't happen to be on node VPS10 are you?

Have had strange issues with it for a little bit
Started with slow downloads which did improve after the maintenance on Friday
Now it seems to hang when I try to download anything from it but if I cancel the download and restart it right away it works great

I wasn't trying to imply that you were a scammer or that this promotion was anything less than it's face value. My point was that I dislike paying for ANY service a year or more upfront because it has inherent risks over paying month-to-month. Many less-than-honest companies will use similar promotions to rake in cash before going under, knowing full well that the product or service they are offering will be worthless in the future. Generally speaking, the better the deal, the greater the risk of something bad happening with it. This happens quite often with independent restaurants that are on the brink of failure. They will offer some amazing gift card deal (50% off, etc.), sell a bunch for quick cash for the owners, then lock the doors. Also, while a proven track record is good and helps support faith in the future of a company, it doesn't mean that a company will always be stable down the road. Quite a few IT-related companies have gone under quickly after showing great promise for years.

Aren't you quite the optimist? Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

There's always that inherent risk for ANY service you prepay for. If prepaying for a good deal is too risky, then avoid it and lose out on the deal. Just because a few companies have done this in the past, doesn't mean all companies do such practices.

On the news, I have seen stories about corrupt policemen. Does that mean all police are corrupt? Of course not.

T-Mobile has 2-year service contracts for discount phones. HostGator (huge hosting company) has 3-year contracts for discounted rates. ATT has service contracts for discounted rates too.

These are all big companies that offer promotions for longer contracts. This doesn't make them dishonest. In fact, they can offer promotions because it guarantees they have business. There is less risk to them to keep your business for a longer period so they give you a discounted rate. These companies have been around over a decade. I've been with each company for at least 5 years. Don't see any of my accounts bellying up and disappearing.

Amazon has been known to offer gift cards at 50% discounts through daily deal type sites. Starbucks just did that a few days ago. Don't think either of those companies will be closing down this week.

In the end, it's up to you to analyze the particular company you choose to sign a long term commitment with. If you deem the reward is greater than the risk, then go for it. If not, move along. Just don't let a rotten apple spoil the barrel Wink

i've learned a hard lesson from other hosting companies. if you sign up with any promotion, it's a done deal. if you ask for refund using any excuse (including their faults like slow data speed or cpu/ram resources), they will either do not refund you or will "gladly" refund your prorated credit....based on their regular rates.

for example, if their regular rate is $120/year. but you only paid $30/year. if you ask for prorated refund, they will respond something like you only paid us $30/year while the regular rate is $120/year. so if we refund you, you will owe us -$90 instead. we will be happy to refund you but based on our regular rate, you will owe us instead. do you still want to cancel your account? we will be happy to do that for you.
From what I've seen from other users having issues this is not the case. Did kevin@CVPS say you owed them when you asked for a partial refund due to downtime?

anyway, back to this service. i liked kevin at first. but not anymore since he promised any gamers are welcome. that really raised the flag. no hosting business can stay in business if they allow gamers without any extra charges. they are either overselling or plan some kind of scam.
Search google for the old thread that was deleted. There were tons of people running game servers without any lag or issues. Kevin@CVPS has already stated numerous times that pretty much anything goes as long as it's legal. Also keep in mind that if your hogging resources that are causing issues for other customers on that box then you will probably be banned. If I recall correctly, Kevin or Chris @ CVPS had already banned quite a number of people that were 'bitcoin mining'. I can't understand why you believe it's a scam when someone is just giving you leeway.

back to our basic questions:
what can we do if the data speed is slow or alot of downtime?
Sounds like you should just submit a ticket
what can we do if your vps servers are slow (due to overselling and gaming servers allowed)? See above
what can we do if later on they define your website is using too much resources and banned your account? they can shut down your account with any "legitimate" reasons. using too much resources is the most common reason that i've seen.
Any VPS will do the same thing. If your intentions are to utilize maximum disk/ram/CPU then you wouldn't (or shouldn't) be looking at a VPS. You would need your own dedicated server.


another statement from kevin that couldn't pass the lie test is that he has hired a "full" staff to handle this business. as we all know. running a hosting service required a 24/7 monitoring. if his staff is not available during weekend, that means your website or your gaming server has no support during such time. i believe he did some hiring but not the scale of "full" like we think it is.
Just from the past couple pages it seems as though tickets are being addressed on the weekend and nights. Just because he didn't post here doesn't mean their staff isn't addressing tickets on their support system. Like he stated already, SD isn't supposed to be the direct hotline for CVPS
Everybody is entitled to their opinions, but at least have some common sense.

I wonder, I setup two nameservers for my hosting (initial setup in the order process) and cannot ping/tracert any of them.

The Chicago servers don't have the option in the CP like the others do for some reason.
With openvz everyone on a node uses the same kernel. It's the host node's kernel. You're basically getting your own userland. So if the host node kernel doesn't support the 12.04 user land you can't use it.
Or the control panel is misconfigured. What does it say when you run "uname -a"?
