No it's my brother's company. Cody Manshack :) I'm glad he finally got posted on Lowendbox - he sent in his offer before I sent mine - LOL. BTW - why is the title 'another summer host'? I noticed you tagged a company I used to own as well. I'm not in any way involved with ydgh anymore.

This went to LEB....

Whois virtuavps.com?

What else? This domain was "just" registered.

Creation Date: 01-feb-2014 so it is well within that 12 month window.

Now Cody sent the offer in, isn’t he some *other* provider? He said this is his “brothers” company. Yet the domain info shows COREY MANSHACK registered it…. Not CODY MANSHACK.

Oh there is more….

Just throwing it out there, that if you have multiple domains in a Cloudflare account, each new domain name you add will use the same nameservers as the first one you added. (At least all my CF domains do...)

With that said, both BitAccel and VirtuaVPS use IVAN.NS.CLOUDFLAORE.COM // NINA.NS.CLOUDFLARE.COM

That's my only contribution. <shrugs>

I'm ahhh concerned, others are too...

Yeah there are two brothers... At least that's kosher.

Corey's BitAccel just had an offer on LEB on June 7, 2014.  Like 18 days ago....  Now the brothers VirtuaVPS offer....

So BitAccel posted on here prior:



Test File for NY:
https://192.3.178.186:6767/100mb.test

Today on LEB for VirtuaVPS, the test IP:

ColoCrossing, Buffalo, NY, USA
Test IPv4: 192.3.178.186
Test file: https://192.3.178.186:6767/100mb.test

Two different companies, the very same test IP too...

It goes:

CC --> CloudShards --> BitAccel --> VirtuaVPS on the IP space? 

That doesn't look all SWIPd right and such....  but I've never looked at an IP before or anything.

Paging Dr. @concerto49, please come school me and help this lad out.
@drmike but BitAccel is hosted with CloudShards, check out 

Its just the IP was never swipped to BitAccel / VirtuaVPS 
Yeah whatever that was said.

For immediate press release:

This is via GetDedi's colocated rack with Colocrossing. Which is us anyway. I'm not going to name our customers, but there are probably more you never saw on LowEndBox. Why not pick those up too? :p

We do all our SWIP in Dallas etc - will try to get back in touch with these ones.

End press release.

This was written by me and sadly I don't hold a director of operations role nor have a degree in PR.

As to Corey and his brother - I don't know. That story is left for the customer. That's privacy... or... for another press release another day. until then.

Love you concerto49... Inherited customer and or ip range via acquisition. Spot on.


SWIP is a sore topic up in the empire state. Think Spamhaus poked your upstream about such before in BUF, a few times.

Lol - you make drama out of almost anything @drmike. I'll get right down to it -

It appears Cody never changed the whois information after I registered the domain for him and sent it to his godaddy account. If you will notice the email address on that one is [email protected] and the phone number is 1.9037464414 (You can call him if you would like but I can barely get a hold of him as it is)

I actually already told him to change his whois information a few months ago because I was still on it but I guess he never did it.

Conversation went as -

Cody: Hey corey I have the cash will you register a domain for me?

Corey: Sure, give me the cash and I'll use my card. 5 minutes later, ok what's your godaddy account info so I can transfer it to you.

Cody: Gives godaddy account info and then sets his domain up....

In regards to cloudflare, he was highly against spending $20/mo when he wasn't making but like $30/mo and I couldn't convince him that it was worth it no matter what, so I decided to help him out and add his domain to my cloudflare account for $5/mo

@sv01

We use the same test ip address because he rents server space from me.

/such crimez

As far as him getting posted 18 days AFTER me, that's because lowendbox is unorganized or something else is going on there. He sent in his offer several months before me, and then didn't get posted until 18 days after my post - very weird.

As far as the WHOIS information goes, when the domain was transferred to me I changed the information into my name. For some reason GoDaddy loves to change it back. This happened about 3 times, I gave them a call today whenever someone pointed it out on my LEB add, as mentioned by drmike. GoDaddy has fixed the mistake, and has changed my WHOIS information to be representative of my information. You can view it here: http://who.godaddy.com/whoisstd.aspx?domain=virtuavps.com&prog_id=GoDaddy

The reason I use the same test file as Corey, is because when I started I rented server space from him. I did not need a full server, and could not pay for a full server's rent when I was making at most 30-50 bucks a month. I have since acquired my own server in LA, but continue to rent from him in NY because I have not received enough orders to put my own server in NY yet. 

As far as having the same Cloudflare as my brother - it's simple. Lower overhead. If you had the choice between paying $20 a month and $5 a month for the same service, what would you do?

As far as my post coming AFTER BitAccels: LEB needs to get on that. I applied for a post at least a month before BitAccel did. I actually ended up having to message the moderator on LowEndBox to get them to look at my application for a post, whereas they looked at my brother's with one glance and gave him a date. Then they gave me a date. And pushed me back because Chicago VPS needed to be posted... hmmm.... wonder why? Then they pushed me back because they didn't want to put their tutorials "too close together". So no, it's not a coincidence that I was posted soon after him. I should have been posted way before him.

Also, I am in no way affiliated with VirtuaClub. I have never heard of them until now... also seems I registered my domain and had advertisements going before they were registered so.. eh. \ o / 

I don't mind being transparent at all, and I have been since I started the company. There shouldn't be a problem with the way I'm running things. I'm keeping costs as low as possible so that my revenue can meet those costs. It's simple business. 

If you have any more questions about the way I'm running my business, feel free to contact me via email: [email protected] or by phone: 903-746-4414. However, I usually don't answer phone numbers I don't know. Feel free to leave a voicemail!

Have to admit too many pigeons on the wire crapping funny on this one.

We are forgiving around here....  If I wanted to create drama, I would have spent more time posting and pushing stuff out..  This was just a blah, be honest, clean your room sort of thing.

I buy you aren't related.  You are just brothers.  Probably the same address, share the same CF account, same servers (well some of them)....  Nested inside of CC via a reseller 3-4 levels down you are sort of....

Hey if I didn't take *some* notice, I'd be getting finger banged and people crying I wasn't playing fair.
