    It was a while ago when DotVPS.co (previously owned by Mr Jack Septhon, known on the other forum as Jack007), was acquired by Mr Oktay Kilic, commonly known as ispirto or serverian.

    Jack was actually acquired with the DotVPS purchase by Oktay. I'm a bit concerned when Oktay says that Jack is "no longer with us".

    Does anyone have more info on Virtora?

    Maybe a renegotiation was done and Jack decided to leave?  Could be anything really.

    I used to have a small VPS with dotvps, but I cancelled when the acquisition took place. Jack was a very nice guy with excellent business practise and hosting knowledge. I am happy that he found a new route to future.

    I think Oktay killed him.

    Jack stayed on for quite a while and as was originally mentioned, didn't go anywhere. He has actually found new employment which is awesome :)

    We murdered Jack

    DotVPS was a hack forums product anyways. Doesn't anyone remember Jack Josh?

    Dang Oktay just registered virtora.com yesterday.

    That name I am f'n blah about.  Fads with names.    Virt, virtua, etc. blech! So much with selling the DotVPS brand (was up on WHT two weeks or more ago). Unsure what that says about market conditions (everyone wants everything and wants to pay nothing) or the underlying assets....

    Congrats to Jack on landing a big boy job where the company is forced to pay him a fair wage and his time at work is limited by law to something reasonable. Enjoy the free time for sleeping, the pub and chasing skirts Mr. Jack.

    Austerity budget cuts.  The bus mechanic was fired last week.

    Considering how brutally dotVPS/easeVPS get tagged with DDoS, it's likely just a rebrand to get rid of the painted target from the dotVPS name.
