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.

Considering that I didn't need a VPS before the original thread was deleted and now I do, there's a variety of packages. Which one do I choose? Do I choose the starter or enterprise? A little guidance would be greatly appreciated.

It seems all the deals are for Enterprise packages.

What do you want to do with the box? Some things are easier to do with certain linux distros, with better step by step instructions, easy software package installs, and different default GUIs. The great thing about this deal is you can reinstall to another distro in munutes from the control panel. So if you're pulling your hair out on one distro, but you find others have published an easy step-by-step on another distro, you just switch to that one.

Is it sure that the price will not go up after a year? Tempted to jump on the CentOS 6 x86 w/ cPanel & WHM for $30/year.

Choose Enterprise edition
Select 1 year recurring billing (total will be around $230)
apply promo code (the total will drop to $30)

Thanks for the heads up.

Basically, I'm looking to do some development on this for a side project/hobby a buddy and I are working on. For $30/$40 a year, it would be worth it to host it on these server rather than out of our own homes.

Cpanel is extra per month. They charge what the actual charge is to them.
It's not needed however.
Yeah cPanel is definitely not required, in my mind it's more of an annoyance. If you want to add it, however, I think they charge $15/month. Which, as far as I know, is roughly what it costs them.

One other use for a VPS in case anyone is looking for ideas, is to use something like Squid to proxy your requests.

I do this when I am connected to public wifi. I set up an ssh tunnel to my vps and I have all my web requests go through it for a bit more security.

For those like me who were coming from shared hosting and who are looking for something similar to cPanel, zPanel is what I decided on. Easy to install & doesn't come with quite as many bells and whistles out of the box, but it lets you install several additional modules that can do most anything you need.

When I signed up last week using the $40 code, cPanel was $10 a month - if you really need it, that's a pretty good deal. Give zPanel a try first though and see if it can't do whatever you need for free.

Which LA node are you on?
On VPS15 I only get:
Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 411KB/s

That's worse than my cable connection at home.

It varies based on when you run it. I did get ~400KB once or twice, but that's rare. VPS11

Jumping in to ask as well. Who and why was it deleted? There was a shit ton of guides that were on there which in itself should have been saved.

I noticed several mods that posted in that last thread who were talking about how they themselves got in on the deal. Therefore what MOD decided to delete it?
