      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. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. SolusVM or Proxmox ?

    Personally I would prefer SolusVM over Proxmox, just simply because of features available & as others have stated proxmox doesn't seam to be the best for VPS virtualization. Virtualizor is becoming extremely popular as it is easy to use while not compromising on features.
  4. I believe it is still in the wrong forum? This offer isn't a VPS offer, it is a shared/reseller offer @HalfEatenPie correct me if I'm wrong...
  5. SSD-KVM East Coast 2Cores / 4GB /Yearly

    Your Budget is far to small for a server of that spec on SSD Hard Drives. Storage: 60GB SSD RAM: 6GB DDR3 ECC RAM CPU: 4 Cores @ 2.20GHz Bandwidth: 10TB @ 100Mbps Location: New York, United States You are looking more in the $900/yr and $75/mo for a virtual server & around $1000/yr for a dedicated server.
  6. Could I just point out the Avast! Anti-Virus blocks the securewebcloud.com site Infection: URL:Mal Object: https://www.securewebcloud.com/ https://securewebcloud.com/frontend/images/swc-net-cloud-2u-hp-order-1.png This image in the thread is also getting blocked by Avast! Anti-Virus for the exact same infection.

  9. What is your preferred web server?

    I think I've only ever personally used Apache for my projects on a web server.
  10. I like the OnApp control panel, that has tons of features that has tons of API features, other than that I love how SolusVM is built, again it is extremely popular.
  11. Where could I look at the test, we could have a look into it and maybe sponsor, give us a pm?
  12. VPS with cPanel

    @William Please send us a direct message or open a support ticket on our site and we will sort you out with one.
  13. VPS with cPanel

    @William We do not "resell" from other companies, we maintain our own servers (even if it a pain sometimes with upgrades & the cost of system administrators and technicians etc), we have less locations than "DediServe" as we haven't been around as long. Just looking at the locations they have, we do not have any servers in Buffalo or Los Angeles. We are however looking into getting virtual servers in Portland (US) and Melbourne (Australia). However, if you are looking at our site (Servers4You & Musicboxset Limited) it is hosted on the DediServe "Docklands, United Kingdom" location so it is out of our network to ensure that our site is accessible if our network goes down for whatever reason. Musicboxset Limited (our parent company) starting selling ResellerClub Dedicated Servers around 6 months ago, then went onto our racks, we now sell Dedicated Servers in the United Kingdom, United States, France & Lithuania (believe me, its hard to set things up in Lithuania), we are now looking at launching servers in The Netherlands.
  14. VPS with cPanel

    It was December 1st? Pretty sure they've found something by now.
  15. That has completely made by day, literally had a laughing spurt along with some colleagues!
  16. There are two default contracts you sign to when ordering an owned licence, one being the software itself and one being the "Support & Updates" addon. Your "Support & Updates" contract ends at the end of your billing period (One year after your initial purchase an so on), that contract terminates unless you renew with the new contract terms. It is optional to renew the second contact, the only difference is the price to renew your contract for Support & Updates. I really don't see why it's such a big deal? The End User License Agreement cannot be used to disagree with the increase in price as the EULA is for the software contract ONLY and not the "Support & Updates".
  17. Our main company (Musicboxset Limited) has just started to accept BitCoin, we offer virtual servers, however as @HalfEatenPie said, Windows 7 & 8 are more for PC/Laptops. However we do offer Windows Server 2003, 2008 or 2012.
  18. Virtual Servers start at just $17/mo

  19. Happy 27th Birthday MannDude!

    Happy Birthday @MannDude, Hope you have a fantastic day!
  20. I really hope this is correct, hopefully this will mean that a lot of good features are coming our way considering I have an owned licence (I have just renewed my Support & Updates). I've seen a lot of complaining on WHT regarding this, many saying they are becoming like HostBill (and I do like HostBill and their features, however couldn't afford HostBill). The change is real and is being implemented, I've contacted the support team and they have confirmed it, I will wait and see if the price increase is a good thing or a bad thing based on what happens with WHMCS.
  21. Live chat software

    Over the years we have used a total of three live chat software's: Comm100, StarDevelop & now we use Proonto.
  22. Limiting New User Posts

    I completely agree in this, it would stop those who just want to post offers and not participate in the forum.
  23. What are some of the best VPS companies?

    It's not all about the best, it's all about the quality of what they offer. Personally, before I started my own business I used several companies such as x10Hosting (x10vps) & vpsDime.
  24. Doubt you'll get something so strict features here. Our lowest pricing is $17/mo for 2GB RAM and we do SSD storage, however our registered office is in the United Kingdom (sorry, but we are). We do have 8 locations to choose from however we do not accept TOR middle-nodes or even exit-nodes & our port speeds are 500Mbps We do allow VPN's though.
  25. VPS with cPanel

    I would recommend 2GB RAM as cPanel usually uses 1GB on it's own. Unfortunately our cPanel Licences alone are $15/mo ($13/mo if paid yearly) & our lowest plan is $17/mo for 2GB DDR3 RAM, 30GB SSD Storage, 2 CPU Cores @ 2.20GHz & 4TB Bandwidth @ 500Mbps. I would personally just use a reseller hosting cPanel server for a few sites (3-10), so you do not have to manage the server and updates etc with higher costs.
