      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.

BuyVM launches new website!

39 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

It has taken us 5 years, but we finally have a new website that doesn't make us look like a early 2000's IRC shell company!

http://buyvm.net

I'd like to thank everyone that helped with feedback on our IRC channel and on these forums :) It has been a huge task given how much content is on there but I couldn't be happier.

When accessing the site via buyvm.net, clicking on any menu item like http://buyvm.net/storage-vps/ works but when accessing the site via www.buyvm.net clicking on any menu item like http://www.buyvm.net/storage-vps/ gives a "404 - not found" error...is that intentional?  (www.buyvm.net seems to only work with the home page)

Looks great.

Appear to be some issues on iPad. Margin or padding issue on the right side.

Well that's just stupid. I guess lighttpd is kinda dumb about CNAME's.

Fixed either way :)

That's...odd?

I'll have to find an emulator or something to get a testbed going.

I think of BuyVM as BlackAndGreenValueHost.

 

I see the same non-padding on the left hand side on Chrome for Win x64.  Footer looks fine, though.

 

Some of the pictures on the About Us page are deeply disturbing.  Is this what the Mosh Bear does to people?

 

Nice work!  Would buy from again.  A++++++

Are you saying your site is not Lynx-compatible certified?  Low End provider my ass...totally doesn't understand his market...

 

Widening my browser window does fix the issue, but I have to go out to a browser window at least 1170-ish wide...less than that, I have a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom.

Looks great as expected. With all the previews received over the past few months I don't think anyone expected anything less.

The site currently uses a "min-width : 1100px;", the designer didn't plan for responsive at all it seems :P I've contacted them about moving it in that general direction but they seem overly busy and haven't got back to me yet.

      This started all because I requested a refund and I explained why I was wanting one.
      I'm going to preface this by saying
      1. I am well-aware that on sites like VPSboard, BuyVM is quite popular and what not so I don't expect impartial responses and I expect some negative responses but I am really not looking to argue. Just sharing my opinion/experience.
      2. These issues stem from miscommunication/lack of communication and poor handling of the situation by management.
      3. I let my anger get the best of me and I should've handled it better but I was completely caught off guard by rudeness but I am a bit embarrassed I got as pissed as I did.
      PLUS:
      From Aldyric(basically making excuses for Francisco's behavior):

      "I have to admit I find the opinion difference between myself and Francisco confounding - as the person that deals with our policy violations and billing issues, _I_ am typically the one that people dislike. Francisco will give you the shirt off his back if it were his last, so if he were actually irate, then there was a very good reason for him to be so."
      There is no reason for a professional company to catch an attitude, blame the customer or be condescending.
       
      Here is what I sent them in the ticket...wasn't rude at all:
       
      Hi Buyvm,

      I am going to go ahead and cancel my account. I want to know if it was possible to get my full payment back. I know it is per your TOS that you do not refund the Cpanel license back to a customer but I hope after reading you guys will consider.

      I am really disappointed tbh....I was expecting a lot based on the amazing reviews I've seen not to mention, while I don't agree always,. I enjoy the comments of Aldyric and Francisco on Vpsboard and other related sites. You don't see 'real' people with hosts...usually it is a façade and they are pretending to be perfect.

      That being said, it has been nearly 12 hours since I've signed up and nearly 24 hours since I've been in correspondence and I am not feeling happy enough with the service and it is day 1.

      1. I spoke with Aldyric last night and he sort of disappeared on me when I was waiting my order to be done....I rationalized and said "well it was after hours."

      Francisco told me it was because I signed up with an email that was unverified paypal or something and that delayed my order. I am not sure how that is possible but that was okay because it got set up.

      2. After speaking with Aldyric(who was a great help), I was told that I would have to wait for Francisco to do the litespeed installation and the ticket was put on hold.

      I wasn't sure if I should respond back because I still needed my site migrated over and I didn't want to mess anything up. I was later told Aldyric wanted to allow Francisco to do it as he wasn't that experienced with litespeed.....Okay I understand that and I don't mind him doing that. And he did actually eventually do it for me...

      But the response of Francisco being in a couple of hours sort of didn't sit right by me.

      3. What bothered me now is the fact that I sort of went through the trouble of trying to get my backup onto the server and I was expecting the migration to be done.....it wasn't.

      Francisco went to lunch and I expected that might take an hour...I believe it has been nearly 4 hours and I've still heard NOTHING back from you guys about that.

      Not a good start and I didn't want to complain but it is like "Wow...."

      So I am going to cancel and I just wanted to know could I please get my full $23 back I paid?

      Thank you so much and I am sorry it didn't work out as I really wanted to use BuyVm and see the awesomeness I've heard about
       
      ************************************************
      Wasn't rude at all. I made sure to be polite even though I was annoyed. So I then logged onto the sales chat to see if someone was on hoping they could get my ticket and this is the trouble started.....
      Notice I was not rude or disrespectful at all. Notice who caught the attitude first because of my ticket(above).
      4 hours earlier, Francisco claimed that he was going to go get lunch but he wanted to know how long the upload was going to take. He then proceed to say "I'll go somewhere close" and be back soon....However notice below, how he then turns around and tells a lie....thus blaming me despite the fact he told me he was going to lunch.


      The "Owner" claims the refund policy isn't 7 days....despite me being told there was a refund period. I guess he doesn't know his own policies (I had asked Aldyric hours before about refunds...here is his response)

      Asking the 'Owner' about my refund...watch him basically give no fucks and make excuses.....
          The "Owner" has no control over business matters....he gave that up a long time ago.....Apparently if he were to step up and do something, a turf war would start.
      I guess we're in gangs now or something? Why would their be a turf war in your own company?

       

       
      Notice how he claims that he can see how long it supposedly was going to take(Despite it taking nowhere near his claims) but he then claims "How he was supposed to know it completed?" Didn't you just say you knew how long it would take?

      He claims he reached out to me in chat....but he acknowledged that I left...which means I probably didn't see the message. So why would you not open a ticket with your customer to make sure that they got the info that you claimed you sent? That's like me posting something in our chatroom just because Frank's name says online and then he leaves....I shouldn't assume Frank saw it if he didn't respond.

      I posted elsewhere on a necro'd thread.
       
      BuyVM has finally launched a website for their BuyShared brand.   They offer shared cPanel hosting and cPanel reseller hosting via BuyShared.
       
      Prior to tonight, only way to find and purchase from BuyShared was via random forum posts directly to cart.
       
      New site is over here: http://buyshared.net/

      Hi everyone!

      We've got some great news for folks making use of our DDoS-Protected IPs. In light of the increasing complexity and size of average DDoS attacks, we've decided to respond by bringing in Voxility to handle these increasing challenges.

      Why Voxility?

      In addition to the significant increase in base protection, Voxility will give us significant more control over how floods are handled, and what types of traffic are blocked or permitted through depending on the client's specific needs. This allows for much stronger protection for individual types of hosting, rather than having to rely on a 'blanket coverage' that doesn't always keep the floods at bay.

      How much will it cover?

      Always a tricky question since not all attacks are the same - but the short answer is, the new filtering covers *significantly* more. For your volumetric/UDP type floods, we'll be able to provide 'general' protection for attacks over 100Gbit (a significant increase from the previous 20Gbit protection we offered); with a good chance of blocking even stronger attacks with filtering customized to the particular service being hosted. And for the trickier, SYN type attacks, a massive increase from our current limits (~8-10 million packets per second) to an astounding 500 million packets per second.

      What about HTTP attacks/Layer 7?

      Voxility, along side our own onsite filtering, deals with practically any http/Layer7 type attack, enabling your website to remain online and operational even during the nastiest of attacks. This isn't enabled by default, though, so please ticket if you need this and we can have it enabled.

      What about Anycast IP addresses?

      Anycast IP addresses can also benefit from the same filtering. Anycast IP addresses are still $5/month per IP you want to protect them. Please ticket and we can arrange this for you.

      Will it cost any more?

      Not at all! You may have heard that we were considering introducing Voxility alongside the existing filtering at the cost of 6$ - we've decided against this, and are simply replacing the existing filtering with Voxility, and keeping all pricing the same as it is now.

      When will this take place?

      It already has! Earlier today we put Voxility in effect for all three locations, transparently moving existing filtered IPs from the old mitigation to Voxility. This caused a few minutes of turbulence as the filtering switched over, but ultimately means that everyone was able to keep their current IPs without having to renumber or go through any other hassles. And from here forward, all of our protected IPs are 100% Voxility covered, giving you peace of mind for the stability and protection of your hosted service.

      Thanks everyone :)
