      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. PayPal Micro Transactions

    Scammer, that totally was added in after!
  2. PayPal Micro Transactions

    Maybe include some numbers? Here are a few. (5 * .971) - .3 = $4.56 per transaction (5 * .95) - .05 = $4.70 per transaction 715 VPS at $5 a month per VPS costs you $100 a month if you don't use Micro Transactions. (3.5 * .971) - .3 = $3.10 (3.5 * .95) - .05 = $3.28 556 VPS at $3.50 a month per VPS costs you $100 a month if you don't use Micro Transactions.

    Blesta is a great product, but it just doesn't compete with the ease of WHMCS, in my opinion.
  4. Verizon is very, very expensive. What he is paying is quite normal for Verizon. The thing is, you get what you pay for. They provide the highest quality and most reliable cell phone service, in my experiences. It is rare that I don't have coverage and even rarer that someone with a different carrier has coverage when I don't. Verizon is targeted at businesses and people looking for reliable cell phone services. If your brother doesn't need perfect coverage and quality, he shouldn't be using Verizon. You can easily save $20 - $50 a month per line by going with T-Mobile.
  5. Try and get them to toss free remote hands into the offer, even if just an hour or two a month. It could end up saving you a few hundred dollars over the course of the year. ;)
  6. FraudRecord is at it again

    Anyone have any info on FraudLabsPro vs MaxMind?

To test our network, please feel free to give our website a little ping! Features on Every Server Automated OS Reinstalls Bandwidth Graphs Superior Network Connectivity Spares On-Site 24x7 Technical Support Datacenter Information Our servers are located in _Los Angeles, California_ at the 530 W 6th Street datacenter on the 7th floor. Instead of standard cooling, we utilize specialized hot aisle containment cooling. All of the hot air is exhausted into specially designed enclosures and simply blown out of the datacenter. This is a highly efficient and green method which significantly reduces the amount of power required to keep your servers cool.
  8. This sounds exactly like a dedicated server with some control panel that supports KVM...
  9. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    The x3470's do have IPMI. However, this is on a completely segregated network (we operate three different networks: public, private*, and management). We currently utilize NOC-PS, which allows for automated OS re-installs. I have not had a chance to test out the IPMI console feature that it offers, but it may also allow for access to the console. *private network is not active yet.
  10. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    You can check out pricing here. x3470 will be +$5 a month for the initial 256 GB SSD and the dual L5520 will be +$2.50 a month (most likely). For questions about stock and availability, please open a ticket! Taking multiple shipments at a time tends to be a bit crazy and I don't always know exactly what's in the data center off the top of my head!
  11. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    Ha, I actually just ordered a handful of 250 GB SSDs about ten minutes ago, so we should have them any day now.
  12. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    Not currently, I need to pick a brand. I can't decide!
  13. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    On the x3470? Where's the customization? ;) We're not stocking 120/128 GB SSD's. Base is a 256 GB SSD. There's a $10 setup fee for all SSD's plus an additional $5 a month for all servers with a base of $50 or less to swap the initial 2 TB to a 256 GB SSD.
  14. DediCube - x3470's from $25/m

    NO, NO, NO, NO, NO. If that wasn't clear: the answer is this is not through ColoCrossing! I own all of this hardware and it is colocated with Corporate Colocation.
  15. The cesspit / chat thread.

    I have an idea. At vpsCon 2015, we'll all chip in and get the barrel (we might need two). We'll find a hot tub, remove the water, insert the whiskey and partay.
