We wouldn’t want Dominic’s consistent nagging via Emails and PMs about “what time” his offer would be posted to go unnoticed. So if you are contemplating signing up please ask as many pre-sales questions as possible, you could even ask him over on LowEndTalk if he has a “time estimate.”

    Looks good but are you using a nulled WHMCS? http://i.imgur.com/V2SUm.png

      I apologize for that. There was a licensing issue for the split second that you verified that. Please try now, and should all be good.

          Yep, us too. Not sure what happened there – we had to re issue the license via WHMCS and it came back up. Anyway, we’re all good now.

          If you need anything answering, please don’t hesitate to ask!

    The test files and IP are apparently for Jolly Works Hosting. Reseller?

      We do not use any of Jolly Works Hostings services. Those are the official PhoenixNAP test ip and files.

    Wtf? Leave the readers out of your personal squabbles if they have nothing to do with hosting.

      Indeed looks very unprofessional, posting and being nasty about it, just looks like you hate everyone, including the host and the LEB readers.

    All servers are equipped with a 1GBPS port as well. Do you have any further questions about our nodes?

    Just signed up for the tiniest of the tiny, a 128MB machine. It was provisioned nearly instantly with an Ubuntu 12.04 image and it is very responsive. Heck, even emacs is snappy.

    Ran into a small issue though, apparently the sudo binary doesn’t have the suid bit set and wouldn’t run until I set it manually. No biggie, fixed it myself, but slightly annoying.

    I honestly don’t know why I bought the machine, I have no real use for it, but I’ll find one I’m sure.
