  3. I’ve heard a fifth location is in the works. Not bad for a two month old company!

    • A two month old company? Hmm..that means I’ve signed up for a plan since inception.

      I have nothing but praise for Backupsy. @serverian is obviously good at his work, and resolves support tickets very quickly. Most responses have been attended to within half an hour.

      Last but not least, it has to be noted that when all hosts on SolusVM have disabled their SolusVM panels in light of the recent hacking/vulnerability disclosure menace, my Backupsy panel has been on 24×7. No issues worth mentioning. I recently switched nodes, and also ordered the $2 extra for full VPS usage.

      • Nice to see a host as responsive as backupsy, impressed within the first hour even :)

        @Joel perhaps I miss-read during order as this was a complete impulse buy, what is the $2 extra for exactly?

        June 28, 2013 @ 5:39 pm | Reply
        • Thank you Joel, Anthony! That $2 option upgrade for the USA located plans. With that, you can use your backupsy for anything except Torrents, TOR and Game servers in the USA.

      Purchased the NL plan. Over 2 hours and the VPS is still pending. Creditcard is billed and they have my money, but I do not have a VPS. Submitted a ticket, no response. Rather disappointing.

      • Sometimes some orders are marked as manual check, that’s why you didn’t receive your VPS instantly.

    I am definitely interested in buying a 500GB storage VPS for backing up some data along with my MP3 music library. Would it be allowed under the TOS if I were to set up subsonic on the VPS and use it to stream music to my phone, tablets and roku player?

  15. Nice panel, nice deal, I just got one in order to backup my VPS.
    I was scared by that SolusVM exploit because all my provider using that software.
    I’m very lucky not affected by that but I start to think the backup things.
    I think that most low-end vps providers not providing backup.
    We are responsible for our own data.

    By the way, I want to ensure that whether Gitlab was allowed?
    I want to backup my code also.

  40. I am willing to order a VPS with you. But few concerns I’ve;

    1. Your domain is really new (April 05, 2013), is my data safe with you ? (I’ve bad experience with many new companies)
    2. Can we re-install OS ? Like I order VPS with FreeNAS but if I want to reload with any other linux template later then can I do it myself from control panel?
    3. Can we run private vpn (again private! for personal use) is allowed ?
    4. If I use FreeNAS then can I place my personal MP3 collection to it for personal use

    Your good and early response will help me a lot

    I’ve used backupsy nearly since the beginning, and their support has been top notch — not that I’ve needed it much! The VPS works and works — its been down a few times in the last couple of years, but they are proactive in notifying of issues and resolutions. No complaints for uptime or server responsiveness.
