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.

I do! It is a bit daunting at first; maybe I'll write up some instructions and post them... which linux distribution are you running?

EDIT: I wrote up what I remember: http://clicq.crabdance.com/vpswik...rvers:voip
Wow, thanks so much! I'm going to give it a try.I have a Polycom VOIP phone that I'm going to configure to use this. Should be fun once it's up and running. Thanks again!

My node went down today for the first time in the past 2 months. Ticket response is slow. Still haven't received a response. Managed to finally reboot my own container after a couple hours and everything is working again. Still no ticket response. Fortunately, this isn't a frequent occurrence, but I'm a bit disappointed at the response time for a ticket marked as high priority.

Slickferret's Easy-Peazy 2-Minute Guide To Setting Up A PPTP Server On Ubuntu 12.04

Tested out on a fresh install...

1) Enable PPP in the vps control panel

2) Run the following commands:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install nano pptpd

3) Paste the following commands in:
Code:
sudo sed -i -r 's/^\s*#(net\.ipv4\.ip_forward=1.*)/\1/' /etc/sysctl.conf
# Reload the config file to have the change take effect immediately.
sudo -i sysctl -p
OUTIF=`/sbin/ip route show to exact 0/0 | sed -r 's/.*dev\s+(\S+).*/\1/'`
sudo -i iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface $OUTIF --jump MASQUERADE
# Enable NAT on boot from the rc.local script.
CMD="iptables --table nat --append POSTROUTING --out-interface $OUTIF --jump MASQUERADE"
sudo sed -i "\$i$CMD\n" /etc/rc.local
echo ms-dns 208.67.222.222>>/etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo ms-dns 208.67.220.220>>/etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo 'mru 1400'>>/etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo 'mru 1400'>>/etc/ppp/pptpd-options
echo '/sbin/ifconfig $1 mtu 1400'>>/etc/ppp/ip-up
echo localip 192.168.0.1>>/etc/pptpd.conf
echo remoteip 192.168.0.234-238,192.168.0.245>>/etc/pptpd.conf
echo vpn1 pptpd iforgotmypw *>>/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
echo vpn2 pptpd iforgotmypw *>>/etc/ppp/chap-secrets
sudo /etc/init.d/pptpd restart
4) Then connect your client with username 'vpn1', password 'iforgotmypw'

I connected with an ipad, and went to http://www.whatismyip.com/ to verify the ip as coming from my vps.

You can change the username and pw by editing /etc/ppp/chap-secrets, or the code before you run the commands.

just wondering, wouldn't OPENVPN be better? Also do you have the link to the guy who posted a tutorial on openvpn before wiki was removed?

While configuring, setting up and administering a mail server can be a fun (for some) and good learning opportunity, it's generally way more work then it's worth. I say this as someone who has spent a lot of time doing just that with various *nix based mail packages.

Dealing with spam, access lists, anti-virus/malware filtering, certs, etc. is an ongoing job. Not to mention, as many are noticing, dealing with blacklists. Most companies outsource this to third party providers (Google, Hosted Exchange, MXLogic, etc.). And the average user who might only need a handful of email addresses for themselves, family and friends can often find much better options for free or close to it.

GApps for Business used to offer a free version, but they killed it a year or so ago. I still have three or four accounts though, and use one quite extensively, and was lucky to be grandfathered in.

Yes but when you run a forum people register and need to get that email to verify there account info. If nobody get's the email then your dead. Not sure how I would do that using a 3d party.

The problem with OpenVPN is that, while it is more secure and perhaps faster than PPTP, it requires separate software in every OS. PPTP is built-in to most modern OSes, and it's also supported natively by iOS devices (you'd have to jailbreak your iOS device to use openvpn).

IPSec is also supported natively by most OSes, and is more secure than PPTP, but is a bit slower, and, most important for this thread, isn't supported by OpenVZ (well, at least, I didn't see any VPS providers offering IPSec with openvz).

Is there a good suggestion of a media server which can be hosted on this VPS? I have CentOS 6 setup as the base OS.

I need to host some birthday celebration videos. If the media server can make password protected content, it will be a plus. Any suggestions for a media server will be appreciated.

Yeah, what clicq said...
Openvpn would be better, but something crappy is still better than nothing. I just want to make it difficult for someone to sniff my connection at an open unencrypted wifi hotspot. It's so much easier and quicker to get pptp going on both client and server, is it worth the extra hassle to get openvpn going just to make my hotspot connection sniff proof?

And no, I don't have the old wiki link. Sorry...

I would hope that once pptp is installed, the pasted code section would still work, but who knows? Try it and see...

Anyone able to connect to www.ipchicken.com when connected through this VPN? whatismyip works, but not ipchicken for some strange reason.
