      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

RamNode OpenVZ SSD-Cached 256MB (ATL)

Yup, can't say enough good things about RamNode. I recently screwed up my backup VPS enough that it needed a LiveCD, and Nick helped me move my stuff out safely. ::thumbup::

 

Great performance is a given with RamNode. That's not something you can apply to many VPS providers.

The Tinet issue is ongoing. At some point in the last week, our fiber decided it didn't want to work right anymore. Replacing things left and right to fix it. They also accidentally unplugged NTT this morning which was not fun T_T

      Hi ,this is my review on hudsonvalleyhost.com  , two months ago i got a managed VPS from them and here is my results :    - first ,there entire IP range is blacklisted on Spamhaus SBL , not for sending SPAM but for sending ALL kinds of viruses and malware ,as Spamhaus said  here :  https://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/query/SBL228367    means that ,ALL emails coming from there ip's will be marked as SPAM (even if they are not ) and even ALL domains hosted on there ip's will be blacklisted too . the funny thing is that you cannot do anything about it ,because hudsonvalleyhost have to contact spamhaus directly ,and you have nothing to do with that .   - second , there sales team said that they allow email marketing activities on the server ,but , after i paid for it ,the support team said NO they do not allow email marketing on there servers ,and guess what ,they don't offer a refund too .   so ,basically i paid for the VPS ,spend more than 300 $ to setup my mailer and finally i got a blacklisted ip's with a very bad customer support and no refund .   this hosting provider is a wast of time and money ,so ,buyers BE AWARE !!!

      Hey all, 
       
      So it has almost been a year since I have been with Cloudshards. So here's my experience with them: 
       
      I've heard a lot of good things about Cloudshards and the prices are really amazing so I decided to spin up a 2GB OpenVZ with them on 27/03/2014. As of now, I have 2 VPS with Cloudshards and they are working really great. Although the company name has the word 'cloud' in it, Cloudshards doesn't provide Cloud Hosting services yet. 
       
      Uptime: 10/10
       
      So far, no downtime in terms of both network and hardware. They have some downtime once every few months due to scheduled network maintenance or upgrade but they gave a good window of 3 to 5 days before carrying it out so that all the customers will be well prepared for the scheduled downtime. 
       
      Network: 10/10
       
      Their network connectivity worldwide has very low latency and is really superb! Connectivity to Asia was especially great and I've gotten only 160ms from Singapore. :) 
       
      Here's a ping to my Los Angeles Cloudshards VPS

       
      Support: 9/10
       
      Their support team replied within 4 hours and they read through my issues carefully. I've once experienced unreliable network connectivity and opened a support ticket with them. Within a few hours, they replied to me and told me it was because there was a DDoS on the node and offered to transfer me to another node. I accepted the transfer and it was done within minutes! :)
       
      Prices: 10/10
       
      I spun up a few VPS with lots of RAM and they only cost $7 for 2GB. For the price and service offered, it is a really great deal! They also offer KVM storage with lots of space and it is very affordable too. I've also asked for a customized upgrade from 2GB to 4GB and they did so without much hesitation. 
       
      Overall, their VPS offer very smooth performance with great network speeds and latency at really affordable price. 
       
      Thank you Cloudshards for giving me such a memorable experience! :)
