    I'm oddly ok with this.

    Oktay seems to be focusing on a ton of brands right now (especially since he now has Winity in addition to Backupsy, Cloudive, VPSDime, etc.).  Proof: Oktay is now the new RTL

    Regardless, it's pretty good service from a solid guy.  I'd be interested in seeing how this all plays out really :p

    Let's hope not. RLT has taken a bunch of mediocre companies and turned them into absolute shit. :p

    I am OK with Oktay acquiring it though.  He knows what he's doing.

    Yeah, I asked him how he does it, but i guess only some people can manage such things.

    The new sultan of hosting is here. All bow to Oktay-khan !

    An official release will be posted within the next couple of days.

    I'm not going anywhere, I'm staying on at DotVPS but Oktay will be the main man dealing with management stuff.

    I agree with DomainBop Let's not hope to be another RLT. I care about the clients, before any details exchanged hands I told Oktay;

    [13/01/2014 05:45:58] Jack: My best interest is in the clients

    [13/01/2014 05:46:39] Jack: I don't want it where they end up getting 24 hour notice migrations ect

    No idea how Oktay does it. I don't think he's around here anymore. Someone must have inherited a fat stack of cash or won the lottery, unsure how he pops out a new brand every other month and buys them up too. :)

    Why no announcement Jack? Oktay?

    No one likes to learn about these things this way.

    EDIT: We posted at the same time :)

    I can't stop to wonder how Oktay manages to juggle all of his brands.

    Good to know.

    Call me an ass, but I don't smell this deal being a big pile of cash.

    Oktay is a smart dude, but he's not the Sultan of mob money.  He's legit, but probably not a sole operator either.

    I hope Jack's role isn't the token left over with the customer schtick.   Cause, I like Jack and the hell he raises and I want to see him in the industry :)

    That's an suprise.

    I like Jack and his way of doing things.

    At least no vanishing of the company.

    Looks like the consolidation of the vps market just started.

    I must say this surprise me a lot.

    I wonder should i move out some of my "kinda-important" vps to somewhere else, or everything will just be fine.  :unsure:

    I'd like to thank everyone for congratulating me. You are great people.

    We haven't announced it officially, yet since this happened only 2 days ago.

    Jack has been doing an awesome job managing DotVPS. Jack loves his clients and he only agreed with us if we keep the clients happy. So, there won't be any complications.

    What we are going to do is improving it while keeping Jack onsite. Jack will be working with us on our other brands as well.

    As Jack said, we are going to make an official announcement in a couple of days, probably next Monday with our improvement plan.

    Not a lot of providers will want to buy someone that offers vps in UK. Maybe a reason why Nick did not buy in DotVPS.

    At least it is a open buy in and no shady things in the background.

    Total true that the consolidation is not finished. We will see a lot of this in the next months.

    If you trust Oktay you should stay. You have to ask yourself to what company you should move then. In the UK it is the httpgroup which owns a lot of providers. It is not easy to put your vps collection into different baskets on some locations.

    I might be wrong about this, but I see a new wave of low end dedi pushed into the market, which might change the VPS market.  :mellow:

    Some of VPS customers might move to cheap dedis, but the scariest part is new summer hosts, getting rich quick hosts, wannabe hosts (you name it) will spread like mushroom as a side effect of the cheap dedi wave attraction, and they come with unbelievably amazing pricing offers (sometimes deception marketing tricks). The phenomenon will not last long but it might disturb the already saturated market, which make the business even harder.  :(

    IMHO providers that have their own gear, IP blocks, community based customers, and product diversities (high end, low end, backup, SSL Certificate, DDoS Protection, DNS service, IPv6, etc) are those who will survive the wave and we will see new tycoons out of the survivors. :)  

    Again, I might be wrong, but I believe the consolidation ain't over yet as an effort to survive the wave.
