VPSCorner.co.uk suddenly disappears; clients reporting downtime

It would appear as though VPSCorner (a provider known for its offshore location of Moldova) has suddenly closed up shop and ran.

Reading this thread and this thread, it seems as though the host claimed to have been in dispute with their DC, whom was allegedly making up charges.

Their site (as of this post) redirects to a cPanel "success" page on Prometeus' server, and their Facebook page seems to have been deleted.

Any theories?

Yikes. Yet another case to stress the importance of MAKING YOUR OWN BACKUPS.

Did they only ever sell in Moldova?

There was an email they sent out that said that (one of?) their datacenters was making up charges.

If this is true, maybe it's why GetKVM also sold themselves?

Yes?


He sold his brand to one of his datacenters (I think?) a month or so ago.

This is the second time, Ash sold the business.

First, vmport, and next getkvm. Maybe he will just start another brand next time. And after that, will it be sold again or not, that's another questions next year.

I dunno. I don't think either brand banked him the amount of money he needed from them to live comfortably.

I think he went into each of them with the right mentality and had funds reserved, but he had issues at one point with one of his US locations and was in the midst of closing it.

I think if Ash returns, it'll be as a sales rep for a well established brand. Who knows, maybe we'll get Ashdam.
