Unintentionally (from non summer/kiddie hosts).

Happened to me twice. 10x bw and 4x ram (both KVM).

Former I noticed just now, latter I cancelled.

Any others, what do/did you do?

Providers, whats your take on this?

Typically I just say "Enjoy" and let them have their resources. My mistake, their gain.
This. Its easily enough done when you change package resources etc its easy to forget to update SolusVM after updating WHMS and your website :)


That said, i hope these KVM's aren't with us at that rate lmao.

My natural action would be to send a ticket saying that I've gotten more resources than what I paid for. =]

As a customer I would sent a ticket.  As a business, like someone else said I believe, my mistake is your gain.  Mistakes happen, it's all about how you respond to them.

Just let them have it. I've doubled clients RAM on purpose as well randomly just to be nice. When you sit on Nodes with 74GB+ you have plenty to spare so you don't care.

Aka not enough "clients"? :)
Not really. Most honestly don't do anything resource intensive. I thnk the biggest user is this radio station but they mostly use bandwidth lol.
The only resource intense users I have ever seen are MineCrafters but I push them off to dedicateds.

What is this sorcery? Extra resources? How can I get me some?

Seriously, this has never happened to me in all my on and off ~50 VPSes.

Never actually provisioned any server with more than ordered, but if we ever did the customer would definitively just get to keep it.

I did once order a VPS to test from another provider, and ordered some extras which were never billed, but provisioned. After contacting them they never did anything about it. Maybe they had the same attitude? I think most hosting companies would.
