    Nice another Hack Forum host getting put on LEB:
    - Their HackForum sales thread: http://www.hackforums.net/showthread.php?tid=2422455
    - Their WHMCS has been dumped multiple times
    - This paid youtube review is hilarious https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Nhk8xp-qzE

    I didn’t even look hard

      I don’t have access to Hack Forum post you linked because I am not Hack Forum member but what makes you different from this host you criticize? Or should we say: “Nice another Hack Forum member trashing featured host at LEB”?

      Hey Spencer :-)

      I guess I would need to create an account at hackforums to even be able to verify that information.

      Second, I’m not going to look for DB dumps for hosts we post. I’ve already explained why before. You’re free to look it up.

      Third, a fake youtube review is relevant because?

        So, let me get this straight. You believe that deceptive marketing (“fake review”) or otherwise shady involvements, would not be a problem relevant to them getting a frontpage listing on LowEndBox?

    • Dylan:

      Did you actually watch that YouTube video? It’s not a review — it’s a commercial, with the person reading a script from the host “we offer… visit our website…”. It’s not very well done (probably off Fiverr or something) but is in no way shape or form a paid review.

      January 10, 2014 @ 5:20 pm | Reply
      • Your Correct, Its not a review. Its a video made by a user he made in return for a VPS.

    I fùcking knew there was a catch:

    Transmission, storage, or presentation of any information, data, or material in violation of the laws of The United Kingdom or the United States is prohibited.

    There goes the jurisdiction benefit for hosting your VPS outside of the axi$ of cen$oring & $pying evi£ USA/UK.

      It’s a cheap server, they don’t have time to deal with abuse complaints and lawsuits. And Romania has copyright laws just like other countries.

        Also they’re based in U.K. so obviously they have to follow U.K. laws.

    • We have nothing to do with the Company VMBox // Norris.
      We have bought the old Domain NozHost.com back in 2012 and redirected it to ours until the domain expired

      We are a different company.

      And also, if you got suspended, then you probably broke their ToS?

    Offer looks nice on first see, BUT…

    3) Resource Usage Limits

    VPS accounts may not:
    a) exceed a 15 minute load average greater than two (2) times the amount of CPU cores given.
    b) run public IRCd’s or malicious bots.
    c) run any type of BitTorrent client or tracker that links to or downloads illegal content.
    d) use an Open/Public proxy, or utilize a proxy to access illegal/malicious content.
    e) use I/O intensive applications which adversely affect normal server operations.
    Shared/Reseller accounts may not:
    a) Use 25% or more of system resources for longer then 90 seconds. There are numerous activities that could cause such problems; these include: CGI scripts, FTP, PHP, HTTP, etc.
    b) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.
    c) Run any type of web spider or indexer (including Google Cash / AdSpy) on shared servers.
    d) Run any software that interfaces with an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) network.
    e) Run any bit torrent application, tracker, or client. You may link to legal torrents off-site, but may not host or store them on our shared servers.
    f) Participate in any file-sharing/peer-to-peer activities
    g) Run any gaming servers such as counter-strike, half-life, battlefield1942, etc
    h) Run cron entries with intervals of less than 15 minutes.
    i) Run any MySQL queries longer than 15 seconds. MySQL tables should be indexed appropriately.
    j) When using PHP include functions for including a local file, include the local file rather than the URL. Instead of include(“http://yourdomain.com/include.php”) use include(“include.php”)
    k) To help reduce usage, do not force html to handle server-side code (like php and shtml).
    l) Only use https protocol when necessary; encrypting and decrypting communications is noticeably more CPU-intensive than unencrypted communications.

  19. Ixam never emailed me when my box came online, I had to login to the site to find out the IP address.

    after running at full speed for roughly 5 minutes, based on my server logs, I got cut back to under 80MHz on each CPU. it’s slower than my netbook now. I have a ticket into customer service, but it doesn’t look good.

    Rented an OpenVZ at ixam a week ago. Handling seems a bit circular in the beginning, but secure.

      Refunds are offered up to 24h after purchase of the product as stated in ToS and also on this offer.

      As already said here, we run scripts that automaticcally shuts a VPS down if its breaking the ToS by example for sending Spam, CPU or I/O Abuse, or other things that affect others on the same Node.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *
