      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

  7. Who was your first VPS provider?

    kvcwebhost is my first vps hosting provider, since they provide ssd vps servers and also offer great discount.
  8. solusvm KVM server monitoring

    Pinguzo is a great monitoring device, it shows everything your CPU, memory, bandwidth, etc. usage and has alerts system present which sends you alerts on any high load or resources usage.
  9. How to Increase VPS hosting Business?

    To increase your hosting business first you need to have a quality tech support team which is available 24/7 for the customer care and has efficiency to resolve all the techinical issues without any delay.
  10. Best SSD

    If you are ready to spend some extra then you should opt for an SSD Drive, this will eventually enhance the performance of your server. So basically if you want to have a high disk I/O application and wish faster performance and are keen to pay for it, then you can go with SSD VPS.
  11. Seems the "Verison" stuff was deeper than i thought, considering Host1Plus (which now also does ads here lol) was/is the main (mostly even sole, yea i admit i rather unknowingly sold some prefixes as well, as did others) supplier of Methbot: https://krebsonsecurity.com/2016/12/report-3-5m-in-ad-fraud-daily-from-methbot/comment-page-2/#comment-423855 http://methbot.s3-website-us-east-1.amazonaws.com/IPs-CIDR.txt At their IP pricing of few $/mo (on that scale probably close to 10-15$ per /24) Host1Plus still made a good amount of money on this - totals up to ~800k IPs/3100 /24s or at the very least 35k$/mo...
  12. Nagios and exim mail q

    Nagios has a plugin to monitor mail queue of a cpanel server. You will need to install and configure it.
  13. All sounds good. You already have a plan in place which looks nice.
  14. How do you do staff?

    For technical issues - I assume that you have a good knowledge of the industry and can handle level 1 and 2 support for your customers. If you lease a server from a provider who also offers end user support for some additional fees, you can place ticket to the provider and get the issue resolved and update your customer. Or if you can hire someone that would great option.
  15. solusvm KVM server monitoring

    You can use nagios or zabbix to monitor the server. And Yes, I also heard about Pinguzo. Have you used it?
  16. Finding Leads

    I would recommend to have a niche product and then start contributing on their communities. Like for example: "VPS Wordpress Hosting" , give specialized services related to them and people will follow you - just need to have solid support services.
  17. Facebook stops paying publishers to stream live video Why buy a cow when you can get milk for free? :)
  18. Best SSD

    I prefer SSD based hosting would give best performance and high speed. now you can get very affordable SSD VPS hosting services at VPS9 Networks. I used their services, very affordable and best service uptime.
  19. Best SSD

    Your subject says SSD so IMO the best 1 TB SSD would the Samsung 850 Pro: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA12K2KJ0777&cm_re=1tb_ssd-_-20-147-362-_-Product If you are actually are looking for a magnetic HDD, I prefer WD as never had issues with them over the years. Think they all (manufactures) have failure rates around %1. Generally speaking an SSD will be faster but more expensive.
  20. When should you use SSL?

    SSL is a must in any web browser now, whether that be a CloudFlare Free SSL or your own EV Certificate. It shows trust that you are protecting your visitors/customers data, however they interact with your website. As of 2017, Chrome have also implemented higher CEO results in search engines as well as the browser showing a grey "i" icon showing it is not a secure connection. Even a basic Comodo PositiveSSL Certificate costs barely anything per year ($7/yr) or Geotrust RapidSSL Certificate ($13/yr) - it won't break the bank - yet brings out the trust in a website, @MannDude, @HalfEatenPie &@MartinD you might want to consider getting SSL for VPS Board as your SSL Certificate expired on the 5th of this month... Contact me if you need one - can give you a free PositiveSSL or RapidSSL if you need one...
  21. When should you use SSL?

    I bring trust for user user. If you have credit card payment facility within your website . Then it become necessary to have a SSL . It cost a year. Its worthy to purchase one.
  22. Best SSD

    i found this article on google http://www.deskdecode.com/top-best-1tb-hard-disk-drive-monthly-updated/ and they suggest me to buy wd. how about that?
  23. Best SSD

    I'm looking for a new 1TB HDD, can anyone help me to find the best one? Name Based in RunCore China Samsung Electronics South Korea SanDisk United States Seagate Technology United States/Ireland
  24. Dual L5640, 16GB ram, UK HOSTED - MyServerPlanet ltd

    How come you only offer 16GB DDR3 ECC RAM, a bit low don't you think, as you don't have any options to upgrade the RAM via the order page? Why not include a larger Memory (32GB, 64GB, 128GB, 256GB DDR3 ECC), considering it can go up to 288GB DDR3 ECC RAM? We may just try getting this processor in stock...
  25. Re Youtube, as far as I know, you can make money off Youtube ads. Also, a lot of people use Youtube to host video then them embed on their own sites. They make the money from their site, while Youtube gets the ad revenues in return for providing the video hosting service.
  26. I do not entirely agree with Bloomberg's point - there is lots of good content that does not really make people a living. From what I know midlist authors, for example, cannot live from writing even though really successful authors can get rich. Where I do agree with them is that it is difficult to get rich on other people's content without paying them for it. That said, I am wondering whether some things I write on my blog (which does not make any money) might do better on Medium (if I can get an audience). I am thinking of topics that either get reactions from people (politics and religion) or can attract a repeat audience (work related in particular). Worth trying, I suppose
  27. Like Youtube Red? :-) Medium is a sort of blog. Anyone can post articles. Bloomberg's point is "Content can only be consistently good if its creators can make a living from it. It's an illusion that creating a platform and inviting everyone to it will eventually reveal enough free, or nearly free, pearls to make the platform's owners fabulously rich." The same could be said about Youtube.
