      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. Also the Twitter button on VPNBro points to... twitter.com/hideandseekvpn
  2. Oh, don't get me wrong -- I have no problem with fan art. Nor does Valve, the creator of that character: But, you know, creating fan art and stealing fan art are two different things, plus this is of course commercial use.
  3. I like how your logo is fan art (of a copyrighted character) stolen from DeviantArt. A++ sleaziness! http://tadeu-costa.deviantart.com/art/Team-Fortress-2-Cool-Story-Bro-466125732 http://www.teamfortress.com/classes.php?class=engineer
  4. €1,99 dedicated server

    Just to clarify, I was the recipient of one of their guaranteed bandwidth alert messages and that's not exactly how they handle it. They ask you to either limit your bandwidth usage yourself or subscribe to their €79.99/month "higher bandwidth" add-on. If you won't do either, they'll limit the server to your guaranteed bandwidth themselves. The way they handle it is pretty generous, honestly. Even if you're uncooperative they won't cancel your server... they'll just limit your port. I do wish they'd be more upfront about what "guaranteed bandwidth" means, but that's a whole other subject.
  5. Questions about SSL Test

    This isn't an issue as in "it's not allowed" or "it's insecure." It's technically fine to include the root, but the extra, redundant certificate increases handshake latency. Some people care about eking out every possible bit of performance; if you don't, you can safely ignore that message. There's no reason or benefit to include the certificate, though.and 3. are purely informational -- they don't reduce your score (to the contrary; including the compatible ciphers would). They're just letting you know in case you need compatibility with older systems.If you want to turn that A into an A+, all you need to do is enable HSTS.
  6. Do people honestly not remember that Spirit was one of the biggest drama llamas on LET back before he was made an admin? He was so confrontational and unpleasant. I was absolutely shocked when he was made an admin. Maarten said on LET that Spirit was complaining a lot on other accounts, and I don't find that hard to believe at all.
  7. What country is best for free speech laws?

    Iceland has strong hate speech laws. Not a good idea if the content is, as you seem to be hinting, far-right. Same goes for most European and Latin American countries. For far-right speech, the US truly is your best option. Privacy's an issue, sure, but the protection of hateful speech is most definitely not. Even the most extreme far-right views possible have been protected over and over by courts (see the 2011 Westboro Baptist Church Supreme Court decision). There's good reason most neo-Nazi groups around the world host their sites in the US.
  8. The same way they've always generated their revenue: enterprise software like RDBMS and Fusion.
  9. Yeah, what wireless router do you have? Without knowing that, it's hard to give good advice. Different routers have vastly different wireless performance -- some great, some terrible. If yours is one with inherently poor performance, then your solution may be as simple as getting a better router. That may or may not be the issue, but if you tell us what router you're using we can help you figure out if it is.
  10. Selling some Google Apps Domains

    How, exactly, will you take care of it? Do you work for Google?
  11. Reliable Domain Registrar

    I'm curious, what makes you say NameCheap has better security than NameSilo?
  12. At least a duopoly is better than a monopoly, I guess? Maybe, hopefully, the existence of a true rival might force Comcast to improve. Charter is definitely terrible, but of the cable companies they're the least worst.
  13. Usernames used by people here

    This is a myth, by the way. It's much easier to get to good credit from no credit than it is from bad credit.
  14. That got selected for me somehow too a while ago and it confused the bejesus out of me for at least a week. I'm absolutely certain I never set it myself.
  15. Nice, perhaps, but let's be honest here: a smart businessperson would not have entangled their company with GVH in the first place.
