Tags: , , , Date/Time: April 6, 2013 @ 5:33 pm, by Zahra

BitAccelBitAccel is a new provider offering an exclusive 55% recurring launch discount to LowEndBox users! You may recognise Corey, as he previously ran YourDomainGoesHere. These offers are valid until the 21st April.

BitAccel has not been around for long and this is in fact their first ever post on LowEndBox. According to their blog, they officially launched on 15th January this year. Corey mentions that whilst they only currently operate out of the ColoCrossing Buffalo, New York datacenter: “we will be expanding with IOFlood in Arizona and Quadranet in Dallas very soon so we are not ‘just another buffalo provider'”. He also informs us that this 55% recurring discount may perhaps be “the best we will ever be able to offer”. Let’s hope that BitAccel are around for many years to come and keep providing us with offers!

As BitAccel are with ColoCrossing, they do not currently provide IPv6. Come on Jon – It’s 2013 not 2003 :-) If you’re not happy with the service you receive, BitAccel offer a 7 day moneyback guarantee. You can currently pay for their services via PayPal, but we are told that Payza is a coming soon. Before signing up, you may want to have a read of their Terms to make sure everything is okay.

        I assume so, however lets other people who have bought / Corey can confirm this..

      • Everyone has 1GB Vswap right now… it’s a misconfiguration… I haven’t decided if I’m going to add it to the plans or remove it yet.

          I feel as if I should warn you, your billing is a bit messed up. I am on your site and If I choose vps3 in NY and then apply the 5dol2gb code on an annual plan it tells me I only have to pay $5 per annum, with a $159 discount… that can’t be right.

      People who understand the hosting business wouldn’t be offended, as this is how such issues are dealt with in reality. Rent/Buy a condominium and you will most probably read more stringent rules printed there. I appreciate the provider for being upfront and transparent about this…

      April 7, 2013 @ 3:45 am | Reply
    • This basically means… if you are using the whole port and noone else has any bandwidth then we will throttle you.

      Or if you are getting DDOSed we will null route your ip.

      I haven’t decided if I should make it more strict to the two rules I just mentioned… or leave it broad like that in case something comes up.

      April 7, 2013 @ 5:33 am | Reply
      • Thanks for the clarification, Corey. Nullrouting the ip instead of immediate termination of subscription on an inbound attack is certainly a pro of your package. Torrents and p2p are banned though?

        April 7, 2013 @ 11:01 am | Reply
        • Yes torrenting and p2p is frowned upon. We will get DMCA notices and being a USA based business we will have to suspend you.

  7. TOS and activities considered abusive also seem much more stringent than some of the other LEB providers.

    April 7, 2013 @ 3:22 am | Reply
    • Well I’ve been in the industry for about 5 years now and that TOS has literally evolved over time. IF you have a specific issue about it please let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you.

  9. Hello,

    While I’ve read your ToS, and it is quite vague [as is to be expected,] I would like to know if you allow running chat bots. I’m a developer and would like to host one or two of my bots [mainly for logging] on a VPS like this. The bot is self-made, and is for the deviantART Message Network (dAmn).

    In the future, I may also host a small emulation of dAmn (also self made) for a few people. This would of course be on a static port, though it wouldn’t take many resources at all. This if course is optional.

      I guess Tim’s policy applies to CPU usage in LEB market. Use it as much as you want but don’t be a dick ;).

      I assume, as long as you are not affecting other users on the same node, no one is going to complain.

  17. None of the ip addresses in the 192,210.150.130 range are working so all new orders will not be able to access their vps unless they are using the virtpanel console at this time. Either us or our dc must have made a mistake upon assignment of these ip addresses and we are working to get this resolved. We will keep you updated and assign you an address out of the correct range as soon as possible if you make a new order. Thank you for your patience!

    I would personally stay away from this company. Took my money and have yet to setup my VPS. It could be due to the fact that they can not handle the amount of clients they are getting. Also, I have heard that their VPS connection on the Los Angeles servers is not stable. Basically means you can not run a person VPN or game server.

        • Depends on the complaint, if you are torrenting and get a DMCA about it – that is strictly forbidden via our TOS and you will be suspended.

          If you have a questionable website that you get a DMCA on you will have the chance to correct the issue before beign suspended.

          The coupon is no longer valid and will not apply to any future orders – sorry about that. Thank you Joel!

        I agree with Soulcyon on this one. I happy that all my longs nights work hasn’t been lost, but the almost 24 hours of down time wasn’t fun. I know that paying next to nothing wouldn’t mean 100% up time.

        I also found it a little bit funny that my invoice arrived half way though the downtime. Made me giggle a little bit.

    I had my server activated in minutes. After one day it was painfully slow. Looking at their stats http://stats.bitaccel.com/ the server was over 40 in load… They offered to move to a new server. My VPS was taken down. Now it is starting the third day with my server down. The last time they told me they had to wait for a third party to enter its working hours (curious idea of 24×7 support), and this was yesterday. No info about the time my server will be up again.
    Must consider this as a best effort service, their biggest mistake is NOT communicating with customers correctly.

  48. If you’d bother to check, you’d see that this comment explains why.

    Every time I’ve had downtime in the multiple months I’ve been a customer of BitAccel, the service has been restored quickly and my questions answered. Most every time it’s do to either an abusive client, or the ISP hosting that particular server not communicating with BitAccel.

    NY3 will be back up (along with the rest) once the problem is sorted out. For now, just be patient.

    Seems too ironic and irresponsible tone,
    All cancellations require a 30 day notice, failure to do so could result in penalties.
    We do not warrant our services. There will be no account credits for any downtime or losses incurred.

    Want business but no liability!
