NordicVPS – $15/Year 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Germany Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: September 21, 2010 @ 2:18 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated February 2012 — It’s long time coming, but NordicVPS has finally bite the dust. Website is no longer working on 24 January 2012. Bye!

NordicVPS Adam from NordicVPS has sent me a very nice exclusive offer for LowEndBox readers. For $15/year you can get the following VPS (OVZ128-LEB order link):

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 600GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

For $35/year it upgrades you to OVZ256-LEB (order link) with 256MB/512MB memory, 30GB storage and 1000GB/month data transfer.

No prize for guessing where they copied their plans from. I guess not much competition at this point as BuyVM has already sold out all the stock. BuyVM servers are also located in Fremont (good for Asia), but NordicVPS has its servers in Germany with Hetzner.

Now on annual plans — I understand that it makes sense for the providers. PayPal and credit card merchant accounts take a big chunk out for processing fee, and having fund available up front also helps to build and extend the business. Just that after the RackVM incident — make sure you do your due diligence and backup often :)

    what is the different with buyvm ?

      For the same $15/year plan:

      + More data transfer (600 GB, not 500)
      – No IPv6 here (buyvm.net does provide 16 native IPv6 addresses)
      * And the obvious difference in location (USA vs Germany)

      Personally I care little about the extra 100 GB (who goes near their transfer limit anyway), whereas IPv6 is a very important feature for me in a VPS offer.

      • @rm We provide this generous offer to the LEB community.

        We provide the same offer in US. Order link for OVZ128-US: http://nordicvps.com/order/ovz128-usa

        We will release IPv6 to all our customers (current and new) once we are ready to provide this feature. We consider releasing a server with IPv6 support in Germany very soon.

    and what is the different between softlayer and openvz ?

  4. @Francisco — ha that’s good to hear. Your staffs must be shifting boxes to racks like crazy for the past few days :)

    @Beny — Adam @ NordicVPS is Danish, but Francisco @ BuyVM is Canadian — whichever you prefer :) Two different server locations as well.

    BuyVM has IPv6 (16 addresses) included from the get go, do NordicVPS have IPv6 too?

  9. Germany with Hetzner. Adam said that they should also have offers for San Jose in US soon.

    We provide “Quick Backup” feature, and we also provide “Central Backup”, you can purchase backup slots on our dedicated backup server for a small amount pr year.

    • Waiting...:

      It’s been several weeks and the stock has not been renewed for Germany/128. Will you be restocking this offer?

  11. I just signed up for one. I was just thinking the other day that I could really use a new backup vps in Europe since RackVM is no more. So this is just what I needed. It looks like a good deal.

    Their website says;
    All VPS accounts are setup immediately and delivered within 5 mins upon payment confirmation.
    If it’s not automated, something wrong, remember rackvm?

  19. @Sei Kan, I’m waiting for mine to be setup, too. While it’s odd that their website says all VPS accounts are setup immediately, and that didn’t seem to happen for me; I’m not concerned. They’ve built up a good reputation, so I think they’ll deliver.

    I also have to say few good words for NordicVPS here. I’ve got a xen VPS with them, I got it when it was announced here few months ago.
    Decent uptime, decent and steady bandwidth. I guess I am on a quiet hardware node :)

  23. Thanks everyone for the kind comments :)

    @Sei Kan Sorry for the delay. Your VPS has been activated now. All VPS are set up instantly now.

  28. @Wing Loon By end of this month we should have new servers ready maybe even within this week.
    We will put a notice on twitter once its available.

  29. Thanks for the great offer! I have my VPS online now.

    September 21, 2010 @ 11:20 am | Reply
  30. Yes, thanks. I received my VPS also. I notice the bandwidth quota listed in SolusVM is 500GB instead of 600GB, though (opened a ticket already).

    September 21, 2010 @ 11:35 am | Reply
  31. Tom:

    David, guess that’s a type, as it should have bean the same as BuyVM, that’s why it’s at 500GB.

  32. Bart:

    “NordicVPS.com is a brand of Active Media – a service provider located in Copenhagen, Denmark.”
    But I can’t find anything about that service provider (link/info) online.
    Maybe I have become a little bit paranoid after my rackvm debacle, so could you please alleviate my fears?

    September 21, 2010 @ 1:45 pm | Reply
  33. @Tom, I’m not sure, but the OVZ128 plan on their website also says 600GB bandwidth. Anyway, it looks like they’ve updated it to 600GB in SolusVM now, so that’s good.

  37. @Nordic, thanks!

    @John, I did a reinstall of CentOS 5.5 (32 bit) after receiving the vps, and I was able to do a “yum clean all” and “yum update” without any problems, for what it’s worth.

  38. I reinstalled 3-4 times, and no repos.
    their template is corrupt.

    I didn’t know checking takes this long.
    If they can’t fix it, they should just refund, and forget about it.

  39. @John highly unlikely that an OpenVZ template has an issue. Most providers use the default ones from openvz. What error do you get? What do you mean exectly when youn say “template is corrupt” and “no repos”

  40. it says, no repos, so I can’t do anything.

    If this had IPV6 I would be all over it. Please consider
    trying to add IPV6. Hetzner offers native ipv6 on request and
    it should be fairly easy to add to the nodes.

  59. I’m a happy customer of them for several months.

  60. @Gary, innya Typo has been corrected now. Thanks.

    @joe, dirk IPv6 is available, but we do not offer this at this moment – we want IPv6 to be fully supported in SolusVM.

    @budi We have 3 servers listed to support this offer and are not going out off business.
    We are expanding in San Jose with our own hardware :) We will continue expand into US, Texas and New York are next on the list.

    @NordicVPS: why? it’s possible even if you use SolusVM (that doesn’t support ipv6) to have VPSes with ipv6

    September 22, 2010 @ 7:54 am | Reply
  64. @budi furu is anonymous, and She/He seems to know about the CVR system so the question was ignored.

    We are reg. company in Denmark and we display our company address and phone numbers and we provide this gracious offer to the LowEndBox community as special gesture.

    We see plenty of VPS providers on LEB and WHT who does not even display proper contact information but this does not seem stop people from purchasing VPS’s or question their offers/service.

    Please send an email to info [@] nordicvps.com if you have any questions, we do not want turn LEB into a support forum.

    Thanks

  65. @dirk For us its a management question. We do not want assign IPs/subnets manually and keep touch of these on cancellation of service and in case of SPAM/abuse cases.

    If you need IPv6, please select another provider. Thanks

    We will announce on twitter once we support IPv6 on our servers.

    I contacted Virk (Company Registration office) in Denmark and you must list CVR nr. on your website.

    You also should mention your prices on the website are inkl/exkl moms (VAT) or not (EU Law)

    They provided me with your CVR number 32181635 and a link where you could be found http://www.cvr.dk/Site/Forms/PublicService/DisplayCompany.aspx?cvrnr=32181635

    Address is same as your website but your website does not complies with Danish Law unless you want to remain “Anonymous”.

  69. @Furu Are you are current customer with us ? Its interesting that you are taking time to contact Virk and displaying information and claim we are anonymous while you stay anonymous :)

    I think the law only requires you to display CVR no. if you are an ApS or A/S – again plenty of business who does not even display their contact information other than a contact form – we provide our address and phone no.

    I think we can stop the discussion about CVR now.

    Our price is excl. VAT. as we do not charge VAT. Again not all (EU) VPS providers display if the price is incl VAT or not.

    @Nordic VPS

    Under EU Tax law you must charge Moms (VAT) from every customer who has an address withing EU.

    If you do not believe me please feel free to contact Skatt (Tax Office) http://www.skat.dk/

    I want to be a customer so I want to make sure you are who you claim you are and apparently I am in Scandinavia.

    My posts are not to harm you in any manner but to make sure that you are a legitimate business and are operating under the law.

    I would not bother with this if you were outside of EU.

  74. @Furu is a little heavy man, but I think that if he does buy a vps, he can ask Nordic for a ticket including vat. And also, I guess that Nordic can sell him a vps, or not.

    Furu, You’re incorrect regarding VAT. A business can only charge VAT if it is VAT registered, and registration is only compulsory if you meet certain business criteria (e.g in the UK if annual turnover exceeds ). If a business is exempt or not VAT registered, it is illegal to charge VAT. So you can only have it one way or the other within the EU.

    @Furu

    I’m danish. You are mistaken. There is a threshold and VAT registration is not always required.

    What Mike D and NordicVPS is saying is correct.

    Besides, if you look closer, you would notice that this a privately held company and not a limited liability company. In other words, the owner himself is financially responsible and can get sued personally for matters relating to his company.

    As a customer, this is great. For him, as a merchant, perhaps not so great (e.g. frivolous lawsuits). But I’d say it is a very honest way of doing business.

    This is, in fact, also a reason why I didn’t hesitate to do business with NordicVPS. Oh, and they’re Scandinavian.. which is, of course, totally awesome ;)

    I’d rather worry about such things as quality of service (the product itself, not customer service).

    Hetzner is *the* inexpensive German location used by many low-cost VPS providers. Network quality might not be up to the same standard as some Frankfurt locations. But then again, my recent experience with Hetzner is limited, so I can’t really say.

    I’ve had a box with NordicVPS since 9 August and I havn’t had any complaints so far. Also, reviews on WHT seems rather positive overall.

  121. @dyn We never received a ticket from you.

    We continue to build our server park for high performance and will soon introduce servers with Intel® Core™ i7-980X Hexa-Core (2x 6x cores @ 3.60+ GHz)

    But we can not move all customers on older nodes to new servers nor can we just decide to remove old but active server.

    XEN and XEN HVM especially does add an amount of overhead compared to OpenVZ

    An OpenVZ VPS, on the same server config, will give a greater performance value compared to a XEN VPS on the same hardware.

    OpenVZ -> XEN PV -> XEN HVM

    But with XEN you get guaranteed resources and is very good for developers who want to work with JAVA etc

    For the budget we offer, I think its a pretty good performance.

    If you believe you can find another provider a faster server with same package deal for same price thats good.

    If you want to be moved to a new node, open a ticket. Thanks

      NordicVPS : Is it possible to correct the template ? For me, I had directly apache installed, should be good to have an option to select packages or a distro without anything.

        +1, I don’t think I’ve seen a perfectly bare-bones image provided by any of the dozen or so providers I’ve been with.

        It’s only a 2 minute job to remove apache etc and get the image shrunk down a little bit but it’d be nice to not have to do that.

          Yep, everyone assumes you want to use apache… some even preinstall bind and sendmail or exim.
          Personally I don’t care, I just wrote my own script that does the initial clean-up on the VPS, removing all the common installed but unneeded packages, and installing the ones I actually use. That way I don’t waste time even on VPS reinstall from template.
          I am not sure if providing a totally bare-bones template is a good idea for a host, though; in reality they are almost right, maybe 60-70% of customers will indeed want apache there, and if they are used (from all the other hosts) to have it preinstalled and don’t find it to be, that may result in an increased support ticket load.

          Hey,
          Sorry, I saw on the panel that it was possible to install a minimal debian. I agree that it’s better for them to provide apache, but a clean install is always better ;-) And in all the cases, it’s possible from their panel.
          There is just a lil problem, on the template the apt.conf is not good, just remove the “2” from the mirror and it’s going to work well.

          After 1 day of bench, ~7Mbits of upload to France, but no answer from them for the RDNS (support is slow…).

      Hello

      We have recently had problems with the VPS’s on OVZ02 in Germany and we had to reboot the VPS both times to bring it back online,

      We first tried get the DC to get us direct connection to the server in able make recover it without a reboot but for some unknown reasons the server keeps going down on us.

      We will keep investigating the problem and hope to get it solved quickly.

      Migration to another server in Germany:

      Those who like to migrate off to a new VPS in Germany, can contact us.

      We will create a new VPS for you on other nodes but there will be a delay since we need to get more IPs since have run out. So if you migrate off to new server in Germany, you will get a new VPS with new IP.

      You must transfer all data yourself.

      Migration to new server in UK :

      This offer is only available for customers who pay monthly for their VPS, e.g OVZ512 – OVZ1024 and larger VPS’s
      If you like to be moved to UK, please contact us — We will get you a new VPS in UK with new IP!

      You must transfer all data yourself

        For $15 a year you don’t expect bells and whistles. You don’t expect anything other than very basic support. If the box is up and working, you’re on your own.

        You don’t expect tickets to be answered within minutes, or even hours. I’d expect them to be answered within a day or two though.

        If NordicVPS are unable to provide basic support at this price point, they shouldn’t have priced it so low.

        No matter what price something is, you expect it to work and you expect some level of support. If something breaks, you expect it to be fixed.

      The post has been translated to English, by me, as follows:

      My VPS was terminated just after 1 month of purchase. The reason (claimed by them) is pretty simple – DDoS.

      DDoS isn’t really un-common on the net, however I doubt whether I was the main factor of being attracted by hackers(crackers).

      The VPS bought aren’t really used for hosting websites, which I guess would not cause conflict with competitors.

      Even though I was being DDoS-ed, I doubt that shouldn’t get the IP null-routed by the datacenter, rather than being terminated by them?

        The DC did nullroute your IP. NordicVPS then terminated your account.

        What were you doing with the VPS?

        Generally, competitors don’t DDOS each other’s websites, so I’m not sure why you mentioned that…

        And DDOS is uncommon. It rarely happens. You have to be a big target or piss off the wrong people, or both.

    I am a Chinese user. As my English communication skill is so poor so I don’t type it in English. Hope that some other people can help me to translate it. Thx
    My VPS has been deleted after one month’s usage because of ‘DDOS’. You can have a reference near the end of this so call passage.I think that everybody know that DDOS attack is very common but what happened on me is none of my business. I have not put lots of site on this VPS, jsut a few and I absoultly sure that I won’t be the one who is being attacked easily because I don’t have any conflicts (usually $$) with others.Why can they use such unreasonable reason to say I abuse your service?
    Moreover, I really don’t understand that why they need to suspend my VPS even though somebody attack me. They can try to do something on their router to stop the internet access temporary of my VPS!They even haven’t warn me in any way!!!

    so call reasons for suspending my VPS by those staffs:

    I am very disappointed of their service. They have problem with one of their servers (hardware) where my VPS is hosted since Nov 9th. They promised me a solution (migration) but it never occurred. Since then, this server is up and down all the time. 5 Days ago they emailed me and wrote that server hard disc is about to die and I should backup my data. 2 days ago it stopped working and my VPS is offline. Since then I haven’t heard of them and they don’t answer support tickets. I don’t understand if they knew that hard disc is going to die, why not take action on time???

    • Actually many datacenters have that policy. I’ve had boxes turned off and/or disconnected by techs due to them being hacked in some way. Not many though as I have 24/7 monitoring, both human and automated. Anything goes wrong and usually it gets noticed. Back in my *shudder* ev1 days, it came up at least once a day in their support forums as well.

      If a box is sending out DDoS attacks or the like, down it comes until it gets resolved.

        They can fool us now when IPv6 isn’t a must for most people yet, but later… they will look like buffoons with demand to upgrade to higher plans in order to get IPv6 address.
        It’s first time that I meet such silly deman regarding IPv6 in vps hosting world. Most providers either have it available and enable it for free, either don’t have it available yet, but NordicVPS lied us with “IPv6 will be released to all our customers” and n0w they demand from us to upgrade to high end plan in order to get few IPv6 addresses.

  188. We have decided to make IPv6 only for customers who pay monthly. We pay a monthly fee pr IPv4 that has been assigned to OVZ128 and OVZ256.

    We do not unfortunately not yet have our own IP subnet range instead we lease the IPv4’s from our DC in Fremont, CA. If we owned our subnet range it will not be a problem. Our business is located in Europe and can not apply for ARIN (US) IP subnet but we must instead apply/purchase via RIPE (EU) for a European subnet and later re-assign to the different DCs but its a complex and expensive process. In Europe we experienced that DC requires a broadcasting/announcement fee pr IP, even if the subnet was owned by us.

    With the expansion of IPv6, we hope old IPv4 will become obsolete so we can avoid these fees.

    Everyone with OVZ128 and OVZ256 can upgrade to our special deal OVZ512 – LOWENDBOX (512GB RAM/768GB BURST, 20GB Storage, 1TB B/W) for just $4.50 pr month.

    Submit a ticket and we will send a new invoice and upgrade the VPS instantly without downtime and assign you with 8 IPv6’s.

        • If I may ask, where was the real plan when you copied us, BuyVM, shamelessly? Did you guys even do the math on how it worked out? There’s a reason we are **slow** on provisioning more nodes and more racks; We do constant changes to our business plan and re-calculate our costs, debts (if any, usually just lines-of-credits with newegg) and profits per rack.

          At first everyone said we should take you, yard, akisoft and a few others copying us as flattery, but in the end all you’ve done is make users scared of the market pricing that we’ve been able to work into a **very** profitable margin.

          There is more to how we make profit than just colocation & ARIN blocks.

          You’re not going to get RIPE blocks, either. We already tried to grow into Europe, but Hetzner wouldn’t feed our IP usage and RIPE, even with our ARIN justification for a full /20, didn’t want to assign such a large block.

          Please, do yourself a favor and talk to Scott to try to shed some IP cost and simply inform clients of either a price hike or that they have to go. Doing this whole ‘Oh IPV6 isnt free because we didn’t take into consideration that egihosting is charging us $100/m+ per /24’ is nothing but disrespectful to your clients.

          This is true, but that’s why now is a good time to learn and get yourself ready for V6, and be ahead of the rest. Even if your own ISP doesn’t do V6 natively, there are plenty of ways to get yourself going on V6 for free.

          Also, large ISP != good ISP. ;) Generally, the large ISPs here are only large due to ignorance, and people just wanting *AN* internet connection, regardless of the quality. Talk Talk might be cheap, but you’d be paying me before I went with them. Same with BT and VM.

          Bottom line is, NordicVPS have done a pretty dodgy bait and switch on customers, promising that IPV6 will be available, for free, and then trying to pull a fast one like this.

          I think the problem with VS was that it WAS free. People would sign up just to get something for nothing, then realise they didn’t need it, so didn’t use it.

          If you’re paying for something, you’ll find some use for it. Paid-for V6 only would probably get more use than a free one.

        I personally, can’t complain. My VPS in Germany, has been very stable, sometimes high I/O, but not very notable.
        I has been rebooted 1 time since November. Support really sucked! However, last weeks it has been approved.

    I have two VPS there. In past month i had about 40% uptime. But that is not uptime as expected, they crippled all VPSs on german nodes (they cant pay for servers so they go to few bigger). VPS’s work with one CPU Core at 800mhz because nodes are overcrowded. With that VPS u can’t do anything except for blog… Recently i moved customers to other server and wanted to use vps as seedbox (network is still good 1gbps), but when i do reinstall no vps can boot (but i can ping ip!?). Support don’t respond except for uniform messages like “we are moving VPS to other node”, “Moving failed, expect downtime”… So far they moved mu VPS THREE TIMES (ovz02, ovz03, vm03, vm09). Admin it is time for dead pool… They took our money and when bills came they are nowhere to be found… I lost 70$ with this b-e-e-p company…

      800mhz of an i7 cpu isn’t bad for $1.25 or $1.50 a month and
      i’m sure its quite a bit more powerful than your phone.

      They never promised access to the full speed of all cores (and for the price
      you paid you shouldn’t have expected it.)

      All that I will agree with you on is that the service has been crap
      lately and there has been a ton of downtime.

      • As far as I know they did promise fair share of the CPU’s and there was no warning/etc of the CPU caps, they simply went into place.

        I don’t think it’s the 128MB people that are saying much but rather the people that bought into bigger plans and still suffer the same caps.

    • You should not expect much from a budget VPS.

      We had to do a hard reset on the CPU during the migrations.

      As already notified, customers on VMxx nodes will be upgraded fairly soon!

      Customers with VPS plans above OVZ512 should already enjoy full speed @ 3.33+ Ghz

  202. Compare the benchmark speed i7 975 Extreme with other budget VPS providers, most offer on very old and outdated “Core2 Quad” or old XEONs like L5420 @ 2.50GHz

    Intel Xeon E5420 @ 2.50GHz – Points: 3,697 (Note its the E*-seris and not slower L*)

    Intel Core i7 975 @ 3.33GHz – Points: 7,035

    All new OVZ512 and higher VPS’s are hosted on:

    Intel Core i7 980X @ 3.33GHz – Points: Intel Core i7 995X @ 3.60GHz

    Still fast, compared to Dual CPU of old XEON 5420s:

    [Dual CPU] Intel Xeon E5420 @ 2.50GHz 7,771
    [Dual CPU] Intel Xeon L5420 @ 2.50GHz 7,727

    With i7 EXTREME series we use, with 1 single core you can get up to 3.73 GHz with Intel® Turbo Boost Technology

    We provide powerful servers for peanuts — If you need Premium support/services please consider our Premium VPS offers.

      No one will respect you when u treat people like that, and if i were customer in need of VPS i will never buy one from company like that.

      • We sell virtual private servers cheaper than regular shared webhosting, so please, we try by best effort to provide a good service to all our customers but we can not please all, thats impossible when dealing with customers in the budget segment — there will always be someone who is unhappy with the service provided.

        We offer OpenVZ, XEN, HVM and KVM servers in USA, UK and Germany and have many happy customers and we will keep up the effort and improve our services.

      Don’t be such a hypocrite.

Your vpses aren’t worth even 0.50$/yearly because simple fact – our desktop PCs are more stable than your crappy servers with 65% uptime.
      A please DO NOT request from us again as last time when thinngs settled a bit after weeks of ignorance to open tickets. Our tickets are as you see reports everywhere and as you know for your own ticket system opened and unanswered per weeks.

What about our costs for having to move our customers somewhere else, what about our lost money not just directly to you but for our lost customers.

      This crook lured us with cheap price for year pre-payment and we can’t do nothing than waiting till our payment without service expire.

    Gotta admit that that while I feel sorry for the clients having issues, anyone who’s hung around for 2 months while going through all this needs to step back and question why they have hung around for 2 months. I would have been gone on days 3 or 5 to be honest.

    @NordicVPS, folks up above have raised issues. Are you ignoring them on purpose? Doesn’t make you or your company look that great. And as noted up above it makes the rest of us in this business also look bad. Been a lot of that lately around here.

      drmike it’s our mistake partially – we got lured with this 15$/year or so.. deal, so we don’t have much choice than waiting this poor year with them to expire without using their service at all.

      They ignore our tickets per weeks. Not some day or two. Per weeks. And it’s not first time.
      previous time when there was one whole week of downtime they vanished completely till node didn’t come back. Then they appeared in public and requested from us to open ticket disregarding the fact that they had still all our previously unanswered tickets… and now is completely same.
      It’s not like day or two of downtime. This try to reduce costs with squeezing few hundreds customers on single “super node” failed miserable and we are almost 2 weeks with service uncapable to host anything.. and unanswered tickets of course. Two weeks of downtime in this business isn’t little thing, it’s not first time with them and issue still isn’t solved. Infact our vpses aren’t available even now.

      side note: this zero poster doesn’t look like one of us. He pasted “cpu MHz : 3341.637″… well, our cpu is limited to 800 mhz but we can’t even log to vps most of the time.

      Do not expect 16 cores for a budget VPS especially one with just 128 MB RAM.

      OVZ128: 1 core
      OVZ256: 2 cores
      OVZ512: 2 cores

        No one expect this.
        Infact we want just that nordicVPS would finally work as it should without constant long term downtimes, regular migrations, regular IPs renumbering and finally with some communication when things go wrong instead complete ignorance. With other words we want some more responsible and mature approach from you and here is completely irrelevant how much anyone paid for service.

        AND READ FRIKKIN TICKETS! OR REMOVE THIS USELESS SUPPORT SYSTEM WHICH IS AVAILABLE FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY WHEN THINGS SETTLE A BIT BUT NEVER WHEN THERE ARE SOME ISSUES… You always appear later to say how sorry you’re for some downtime or so. Are you sorry also for your ignorant approach when you screw up things because this is what usually people pissed off the most..

        Let me give you one advice. From this what I saw regarding nordicVPS this isn’t first neither last chaotic situation. I am pretty sure that there will be more in future, but you know what? COMMUNICATE. READ TICKET, ANSWER THEM.. GIVE US IMPRESSION THAT YOU CARE and many things will be easier for both sides. It’s not our fault that you don’t make money from your low end plan so don’t stigmatize customers because bought it. For all this, including long downtimes can be blamed only you. So remember… as you have support ticket system start to use it. Use it regulary no matter if there’s something wrong or not. We don’t use WHT and lowendbox for complains just because we’re bored. We often use them because proper channels like supoort tickets are ignored.

  210. If any of my tickets was replied with answers (like they did in start), i would never post something here…. If i was told that there could be possibility of long downtime i would move customers somewherw else (two days is enough for nameserver ip propagation), and return them when migration or whatever was over… Offcorse there should be some compensation for downtime but so far nothing…

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.
