      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.

  1. They can't trust Chris around other people so he got his own office.
  2. It has been so long

    Another one appears out of thin air! and slips away into the night....

    Oh hey there.
  4. Hi all, Here's a little bit about me for those of you who don't know me. I've been involved with/worked in the Web Hosting industry since around 2010 however took most of 2013 and 2014 off. I was away from the online world to focus on building a career and personal life offline. Things are now running relatively smoothly for me an I'm starting to become more active once again as time is freeing up (I've been lurking around this whole time however). I'm now looking for a part-time job (that's flexible around my current job) in the Web Hosting industry that preferably pays per ticket and is a strong brand that I'm happy to represent. My time zone is GMT+12 down here in New Zealand and I would preferably work most evenings. I started working in the industry back when Curtis (@MannDude) ran a company called SurmountedNET where I mainly worked in sales. From the contacts I had from there I landed myself a job later down the track with Chris Miller working for FTNHosting where I stayed for around a year, focusing in sales and low level tech support. I have experience with the majority of web hosting, billing and VPS control panels. I also have a bit of experience with programming in PHP and a tiny bit of Python. Pay and work hours is completely negotiable and I'm willing to discuss this with any interested providers. Feel free to contact me on vpsBoard through Private Message. Cheers!
  5. Bumping as I'm still looking. Pay per ticket would work well.
  6. vpsBoard fitness club!

    I'm actually disgusted by how much energy I've been wasting to get up and grab beers. The fridge is moving to the living room tomorrow...or maybe my living room can move to the kitchen. Whichever is easiest.
  7. -Free DDoS mitigation up to 2 Gbps! -10Gbps Free DDoS Protection -Every server on our network is protected up to a 1Gbps attack, FREE So....which one?
  8. I've been seriously considering buying some land and a cheap campervan and start building, gardening and hunting a lot more on. Problem always is, money. A small piece of land here isn't cheap unfortunately.
  9. Looking for various VPS with cPanel

    http://ramnode.com/vps.php Check out their Massive OpenVZ SSD-Cached plans. 1GB RAM 200GB Storage 3TB Bandwidth 4 Cores $10/month
  10. One of my favourites at the moment
  11. I just got two the other day! Picked up another two :)
  12. Private Network

    Well, shit. If all your users started transferring at 1Gbps you have more issues. Where and why is this data being transferred? Generally speaking, each port on a switch should be able to handle that volume anyway. It's an internal network running a couple of metres through copper wire. My real question is, where can I get servers that can write at those speeds?

    Minimal costs of equipment that should already be in place by any provider with their head in the right place. What ongoing, concurrent costs are there?
