      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

Who was your first VPS provider?

My first VPS was with BuyVM back when they were starting at HE Fremont.

I used dedicated servers way before buying my first VPS.

My first VPS providers were Ramnode and BlueVM. BlueVM for a Windows desktop to work on and Ramnode as a webserver.

I think mine was TMZvps with cPanel managed service.

Though I bought one from Namecheap earlier with no control panel I had no idea how to work with that so has the cancel the order. :)

Mine was with hostus in 2013 when they started. I was one of their first few customers and was the first one to review their services on a community forum.

I went with DigitalOcean and mostly because I had no idea on VPS's. Their 10$ free credit was what got me, because I wanted to pay as less as possible before I knew what I was doing.

Slicehost and dbihosting, they had their ups and down in all this time. I'm no longer with any of them.

Now, if your talking about my first LEB VPS, that honor goes to BuyVM, Francisco and Aldryc, thanks for the support and help I got from you.

I was late to the party, I think Slicehost was already purchased that time when VPSs piqued my interest.

First one.. VPSLatch I think, now owned by Hostdime :)

Ours was way back in 2001 with a UK based company called DSVR who had a very interesting custom precursor to OpenVZ based on Linux vservers if I remember correctly (it was a long long time ago!).

My first VPS provider was 'manashosting'. I was fairly new in this whole VPS genre and i got lured due to their attractive prices. I regret that decision to this day but i learnt a lot.

I think Virpus was my first, it was good for a year then they lost my data. After which, there was a craze for buyvm's limited stock and I findally hopped on board.

A game server company (no longer around) called CraftingHost was my first. It was a VPS that came with a game server installed and a panel.
