SSD VPSJared, from SSD VPS, comes back with a previous offer, that has been slightly updated to provide you with an additional IPv4! SSD VPS have been featured many times before. These virtual machines run on 100% SSD drives, no HDD’s in the equation. The virtual machines are housed in a server that is using the Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 Quad Core CPU, 4x 480 GB Intel 520 Series SSD and a LSI 9260-4i with BBU for hardware RAID 10. Reviews from previous listings have been very mixed, with both positive (mainly to do with benchmarks) and negative comments (mainly to do with support). If you have a comment, or think that they have proved to be better lately, please leave a comment below.

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: October 16, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Rashid Alkhaili

Atlantic.NetMarty, from Atlantic.Net, told us that they have recently added two new locations to their Cloud servers. These are Dallas, TX and Toronto, Canada. These Cloud servers are powered by SSD RAID protected drives, and you can be up in 30 seconds!

Atlantic.Net is a private S Corporation, which has been running for 20 years. They have been listed once before, and there were a mix of responses. If you tried them, or have any comments, please leave them below.

Feathur is an Open Source (AGPL V3.0) control panel for OpenVZ and KVM and is available on GitHub. BlueVM Communications LLC are based in Honolulu and are dedicated to offering “low cost, high quality Virtual Private Servers (VPS)”. We have featured BlueVM quite some times since early 2012 and reviews have been mainly positive. After they had enough of SolusVM after numerous security incidents, BlueVM decided to write their own panel. Feathur is the result of that. It’s already in use at BlueVM (and has been for a while) but it is also available to the public and I believe other providers have started using it as well. Their hardware primarily consists of Intel E3-1240 servers (@ 3.4GHz) with 32 GB of RAM and 4 x 1TB or 2TB hard drives in RAID10. A review of their service (which includes Feathur screenshots & serverbear link) can be found here.

Finding your way on your first ever VPS – Part III

Tags: Date/Time: October 11, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

lowendtutorial

Part III of the “Finding your way on your first ever VPS” series is right in front of you right now! This time I’m going to focus on some powerful tools which can make your day-to-day life a lot easier.

I am going to assume a Debian-based distribution in my examples. I’m using Ubuntu 14.04 more specifically. Most commands should work on any Linux distribution; the only distribution-specific commands are those for the package manager.

Let’s get to work!

DDoS-Sentry – OpenVZ VPS with DDoS-protection starting at $1.50/month for 128MB in France

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: October 7, 2014 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

Even though we usually do not intervene much on offers, this one seems to come from an owner that’s clearly shilling and being insulting towards their customers. We do not appreciate this and have therefore removed all the links to their site from this post and would like to ask people to usher extreme caution when dealing with this company.

DDoS-Sentry-Portal_Home_-_DDoS-Sentry_-_2014-10-06_19.13.49Johannes, from DDoS-Sentry, has sent in three exclusive DDoS-protected servers hosted with OVH in Roubaix, France. Due to the age of DDoS-Sentry the last plan was not listed with the annual price.

Sentry I

  • 1 vCPU core
  • 128MB RAM
  • 10GB HDD space
  • 100GB traffic
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • DDoS Protection
  • 1x IPv4
  • IPv6 on request
  • SolusVM/OpenVZ
  • $1.50/month
  • $7.00/year
Sentry II

  • 2 vCPU cores
  • 256MB RAM
  • 25GB HDD space
  • 250GB traffic
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • DDoS Protection
  • 1x IPv4
  • IPv6 on request
  • SolusVM/OpenVZ
  • $3.00/month
  • $14.00/year
Sentry III

  • 4 vCPU cores
  • 512MB RAM
  • 50GB HDD space
  • 500GB traffic
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • DDoS Protection
  • 1x IPv4
  • IPv6 on request
  • SolusVM/OpenVZ
  • $5.00/month

DDoS-Sentry was started about 8 months ago. Their goal is to offer a cheap but good DDoS-protected service. For these plans they utilize servers from the OVH enterprise line and not one of their budget plans. This means you get to benefit from the OVH Anti-DDoS PRO which has some small benefits over the normal version. While DDoS-Sentry are using SolusVM right now, they do plan on coming up with an integrated solution inside their billing panel. This plan would include some tools to use some of the more advanced firewall and Anti-DDoS tools OVH offers. Host nodes have an Intel Xeon E5-1620v2 or better, 64 to 128GB of RAM, 2x 2TB SATA drives in hardware RAID1, and 1Gbps uplinks. As with all new hosts, please be cautious especially when they have no SSL on their client area or a very good website…  Also, feel free to share your opinions with us here!
