      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

  1. vpsBoard is now adsBoard

    Yeh mostly you. The problem is real content vs ad content. Is hard to find what's new with all these ads, even in the feed.
  2. vpsBoard is now adsBoard

    Just thinking about how ad spammy this forum has become. You are in the league of WHT if not far. Is it dead again? :)
  3. Any VPS Recommends (Managed)

    BuyVM has a managed service. Contact Francisco.
  4. ColoCrossing threatens to sue vpsBoard

    So many click likes i had to give. My finger is hurting. All your fault.
  5. Hello Community, Speaking for myself , I usually check the forum 1 or 2 times a week. I've been noticing that recently the panel located to the right called "VPSBoard Discussions" is being filled with random offers. While profit is an important part in maintaining a proper community, I think that for such a low activity forum filling that panel with offers is a problem. It causes members like me to not see the actual interesting content and since we have almost completely that right side bar full of random hosting ads, how about if we just maintain at least that little vsboard discussion panel clean without ads, just the real content, what matters. Otherwise one has to click the Discover Content at the top which I do but is not as useful as that little right panel. Just my 2 cents. Feel free to share your opinion.
  6. Not sure if for business let's encrypt is trusted enough. For now I prefer to buy certs from known authorities.
  7. Hello, Why your "cloud vps" offers as Quadranet are cheaper than the Crissic solutions? Are the "cloud vps" offers inferior somehow to the crissic solution? Is Crissic your premium brand now?
  8. SolusVM panel strange event

    @zafouhar i agree, but that was no the case. @Licensecart asked the host, it went into a never ending investigation :) Still waiting.
  9. Hi, Today I was setting up a VPS in a provider that uses SolusVM. So to make the story short, i first reinstalled with centos 7, got stuck at some point with an incompatible package and the IUS repo, so I said well this is just for a quick deployment, I'll reinstall ubuntu (might have done that 2 times after centos 7). After i finish setting up everything in ubuntu , ready to paste production files, BAM all connections dropped and winscp gave a warning of ssh fingerprint different, UHMM strange... Went to solusvm and it literally reinstalled the vps with centos 7? Like 1-2 hours after I installed ubuntu, why would it do such thing. Automatically requested the vps service to be cancelled. That shit scared me. Just imagine a scenario where the server is running production data and it just wipe the thing like that without a requests for that? Things I though: a bug? an overloaded node? If you go into solus and try to do multi reinstall sequentally it wont allow it until the previous finish. Just opening the thread for discussion. This is the problem with these hosting "mainstream" tools. Nothing like the custom panels.
  10. Or if you have a windows spare computer laying around, just install lili (LinuxLive USB creator) a do 3 clicks. +1
  11. HA in Digital Ocean

    Thanks drmike and fm7 for the contribution. I like these topics. I wish the forum were more about this and less random. HA is an interesting topic with multiple ways to achieve it. It has some area for improvement.
  12. HA in Digital Ocean

    This have been known for a little while, based on the features enabled in the control panel at DO, but today I found this explanation while looking over twitter. Here is the link to the article, is so nicely crafted that I prefer to just place the link. https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/what-is-high-availability TLDR; The floating IP feature at DO (which is not a new thing here) is ideal to create a basic HA infrastructure. * Just creating the post to see if anybody want to contribute or criticize. We have a few infrastructure enthusiasts in here.
  13. My homemade slow webserver

    Probably faster than most shared hosting :D
  14. That's a beautiful setup, indeed. Stable enough?
  15. It works both ways. I find more vulnerable that you tunnel absolutely everything through them, so basically if one of these vpn fail, let say one of these VPS (if this is what you use) get hacked then you are compromising everything.
