  1. I have made myself available (except for some naps of course!) these next few days so please reach out to me directly via PM on LET if you need my personal assistance with anything in regards to our big sale.

    If not then everyone enjoy and we will do our best to get these orders filled as they come in!

    • Clayton:

      Possible for you to check out ticket #EGR-239238 when you have a chance pls and ty. I am eager to try out this service.

      November 28, 2016 @ 4:36 am
      • Clayton:

        Looks like someone else already got the ticket. You guys are pretty fast. Ty

        November 28, 2016 @ 4:37 am
        • That’s what we strive for. Thanks for your business Clayton!

          November 28, 2016 @ 4:44 am
  2. No CentOS 7??

    November 25, 2016 @ 7:36 pm
    • If not on the order form no worries, I see it in SolusVM so I will make not to add that to the order form when the rush dies down.

      Simply select CentOS 6 and do a re-install to anything you desire after the order is activated :)

    Is this recurring for ever?

  4. Gabriele:

    Hi, discount on 4GB Windows KVM is recurring?
    Is it possible to have 2012R2?

    November 25, 2016 @ 7:45 pm
    • Yes it is recurring and we have a 2012R2 template in the works to roll out next week!

      November 25, 2016 @ 7:53 pm
      • Robert:

        Well that’s good news. I’ll mess around in the meantime so I don’t spend a bunch of time setting things up only to wipe it out next week with R2. XD

        November 28, 2016 @ 10:54 pm
        • Hehe I hear ya there, will definitely have that template rolled out after the sale has ended.

  5. kei:

    Hello Nick!
    1. Reoccurring deals?
    2. What “8x CPU means”? 8 threads/cores of which model?
    3. Guaranteed or limited resources on KVM/OpenVZ?
    4. Allowed to run seo tools (no spam, social accounts management stuff, always using proxies)?
    5. What’s a no-no in general?

    Thank you in advance.

    November 25, 2016 @ 7:48 pm
    • Hi kei!

      1. Yes, these deals are for LIFE!
      2. 8 threads, the Windows VPS nodes are Dual E5’s ranging from the 2620 models up to the 2670’s.
      3. KVM is dedicated except for the fair share CPU power and network port. OpenVZ is allocated dedicated resources to you as well just uses the host node kernel so it has more of a virtual feel.
      4. As long as it doesn’t violate our TOS or brake any laws, you should be fine!
      5. The usual items most hosts down’t allow, any specific questions feel free to ask away.

      Most welcome kei!

      November 25, 2016 @ 8:03 pm
      • kei:

        Very good! But on order page it states 4x cores instead of 8x as in offer. Would you fix this please?

        November 25, 2016 @ 8:10 pm
  6. Hxxx:

    Windows licensed or the same 180 trial scam that HVH do?

    November 25, 2016 @ 7:48 pm
    • If you have any issues with licensing let me know, I will personally apply one of our licenses to your service for you.

      November 25, 2016 @ 7:53 pm
  7. cp:

    The promotion code you entered has been applied to your cart but no items qualify for the discount yet – please check the promotion terms – windows out of stock?

    November 25, 2016 @ 7:51 pm
    • The promo code doesn’t work on the already on sale 4GB plan.

      November 25, 2016 @ 7:53 pm
    • cp:

      found the issue, must select monthly payment, does not wrk with quarter nor yearly

      November 25, 2016 @ 7:53 pm

    No Windows Server in Chicago?

    November 25, 2016 @ 8:17 pm
    • Not for this sale, sorry!

      November 25, 2016 @ 8:43 pm
    • The Buffalo network is comparable in latency, but actually has more carrier diversity (Telia, XO, Hibernia and TORIX peering). I think you’ll be very happy with Buffalo if you try it. :)

    Marked me as fraudulent :( Got email with pdf form to fill out all my data, signature and attach photos of credit card from both sides…
    Paid with paypal all day today with no problems as usual. Can we calm down your antifraud system without such a ballbusting procedure. I dont feel safe doing this at all!

      You should not order by VPN. I am a multi-year user of chicagovps.

      November 25, 2016 @ 8:32 pm
      • kei:

        I don’t use VPN or anything of such nature.
        I can jump through hoops and all that but sending my credit card out in the open is a bit too much. Paypal or CC via https stripe/amazon/2checkout/etc it should be. No in the email.

        Ticket OQN 343489. Thanks

          Simple ID verification proving your identity will be sufficient, thanks!

            Thank you for your help and speedy answers. I sent my ID about 1h ago. Waiting on approval to finish payment.

  12. Fran:

    I’m trying to take a second windows server deal but I’m not getting the deal price like the first. Is this a one per account deal? It lets me do it if I make a second account but that seems wrong…

    November 25, 2016 @ 8:41 pm
    • We do have it set to 1 per account at the moment on the 4GB Windows special to prevent someone coming in and ordering all of the stock before our LEB viewers can take advantage.

      Please pop in a ticket and toss me the number and I will gladly add a second order to your account.

      November 25, 2016 @ 8:45 pm
      • Fran:

        Alright, I sent a ticket to Sales, thanks for taking the time and for the great price, can’t wait to try out your service and be just as impressed!

        November 25, 2016 @ 8:55 pm
  13. Matt:

    I’d like to order both deals, the 4GB KVM and 5GB OpenVZ, but I can’t seem to have both in my cart with each discount. How to?

    November 25, 2016 @ 8:45 pm
    • With how the discounts are setup you will want to place a separate order for each product to take advantage of the specialty pricing.

      November 25, 2016 @ 8:46 pm
      • Matt:

        Will the billing be combined every month?

        November 25, 2016 @ 8:57 pm
        • Yep, if they are on the same billing date then WHMCS will “automagically” put them on the same invoice Matt :)

          November 25, 2016 @ 8:59 pm
          • Matt:

            Cool. I have them both in my cart now and the total is $15.00 anyway! Seems if you apply the 4GB KVM discount code to the cart it seems to work. The 5GB OpenVZ plan is already listed as $5 right from the start.

            November 25, 2016 @ 9:07 pm
            • Ah there you go then, enjoy Matt and please do not hesitate to contact us if we can assist with anything :)

              November 25, 2016 @ 9:11 pm
          • Matt:

            Thanks. :) One oddity I can’t figure out is when I go to checkout, the total has .75c added to it. Jumps from $15.00 to $15.75. Doesn’t bother me too much, still a good deal. ;)

            November 25, 2016 @ 9:23 pm
            • Most welcome.

              Are you paying by credit card perhaps? There is a small processing fee on that payment gateway.

              November 25, 2016 @ 9:24 pm
          • Matt:

            Yeah, it seems to be a CC surcharge. Having issues with ChicagoVPS accepting my Debit Mastercard, do you have an email I can contact?

            November 25, 2016 @ 9:40 pm
            • Was just held for manual review, I approved your pending charge :)

              November 25, 2016 @ 9:40 pm
          • Matt:

            Lol ok. I actually resubmitted my CC details again thinking it might be a CC gateway glitch, hope I don’t get charged twice! Either way, I’m at the dashboard now :) Thanks.

            November 25, 2016 @ 9:47 pm
            • No worries at all, if there is a duplicate charge let me know and I can refund the latest one etc.

              Enjoy the new servers Matt!

              November 25, 2016 @ 9:49 pm
  14. 5GB OpenVZ Linux VPS what cpanel or whm is on it?

    November 25, 2016 @ 9:06 pm
    • That is an un-managed plan with no licenses of any sort included.

      November 25, 2016 @ 9:07 pm
  15. M:

    Your OpenVZ template doesn’t work at all.
    I’ve raised a few tickets and instead of fixing the broken template, I was told to raise a ticket every time I want to rebuild – just because you have “24/7 support”.

    November 25, 2016 @ 9:14 pm
    • Sorry to hear that “M”! Which OpenVZ template is this in regards to?

      Let me know and I will gladly make sure to upload an updated version for you :)

      November 25, 2016 @ 9:16 pm
      • M:

        check #EYP-840902

        November 25, 2016 @ 9:18 pm
        • Thanks “M”, I have taken note of this ticket and will look into addressing your “Ubuntu 15” template re-install issue first thing after the weekend/sale!

          November 25, 2016 @ 9:23 pm
          • M:

            it’s not only the Ubuntu – all of the *minimal* templates are not working. please check on them too. thanks!

            November 25, 2016 @ 9:35 pm
            • I have noted that down with the ticket number and I will be in touch via your ticket next week when I start cleaning those up for you :)

              November 25, 2016 @ 9:38 pm
          • M:

            I just unsubscribed to your service. Nothing but nightmare.

            November 27, 2016 @ 7:47 am
            • I am sorry to hear that, I saw Mike handled your ticket and there was issues with auto provisioning on an older node for your account.

              We didn’t want to cause you more issues so I had him issue your refund with no hassle, thanks and we wish you luck!

              November 27, 2016 @ 8:01 am
  16. Thank you, what do you have on sale? managed whm?

    November 25, 2016 @ 9:14 pm

    Hi Nick,

    are there issues to pay with visa credit card ? I try it (VPS Basic), but ‘The credit card details you entered were declined’ – ???

    November 25, 2016 @ 9:39 pm

  20. Greg:

    Hey Nick,

    The BF2016 promo code doesn’t seem to work for product addons – would it be possible to enable this?


    November 25, 2016 @ 9:49 pm
    • Correct, only works on the main product not the addons itself due to some being licenses and other costly addons.

      Sorry for the inconvenience!

      November 25, 2016 @ 9:50 pm
      • Greg:

        I was just trying to purchase backup & and IP address, no license. You might want to state that in the description “60% off anything on their site except for dedicated servers, domains and licenses”.

        November 25, 2016 @ 9:55 pm

    any sale for bigger RAM for Windows KVM? For example 6GB or 8GB?

    I have to say this is one of the best experiences I’ve had with providers here on LEB. Super-quick setup, ticket answered in minutes by a native English speaker, OpenVZ instances feel responsive. Going to be moving a lot of my business here today.

    November 25, 2016 @ 10:26 pm
    • Greg,

  26. pooper:

    Is it possible to rent a vps without giving my dna? Like using a prepaid debit card and using a fake name? Not for anything considered illegal or hacking. I only want to run a minecraft game server and don’t mind the host logging in and monitoring it, canceling it if used for anything other than that purpose. I hate all this government spying and refuse to take part in this maxmind crap or anything else wanting my photo id or whatever before a crime has even been committed. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Investigate fraud when there’s evidence of fraud, not investigate the entire population when there’s no evidence the entire population is about to do something wrong.

    November 25, 2016 @ 11:49 pm
    • No verification is required if you are paying via PayPal or Bitcoin.

      Fraud is a major issue with online services, which is why we conduct verification for some customers who are new signups and using credit cards. We utilize tools like Maxmind, etc, to prevent and minimize fraud whenever possible. :)

      Hope you signup with us!

        I boycotted paypal since they blocked donations to Wikileaks a few years ago. bitcoins are tied to a bank account so i own none. Best thing for me is to grow a beard, get my acoustic guitar and smoke as much marijuana as possible. Great offer though and good luck.

      Submit a ticket and we’ll take care of you. Not sure why it doesn’t show $10 for you, I just tested and it showed $10 for me.

    Hey Nick,

    I want quantity=20 of $1 Cloud VPS (https://www.chicagovps.net/services/cloud-vps). Can I purchase 20 servers of $ 1 cost?


    November 26, 2016 @ 12:28 am
    • You can order as many as you desire.

      November 26, 2016 @ 12:31 am
      • Amber Jain:

        How do I add 20 servers of same type/cost to cart? Isnt their a “quantity” field in cart somewhere? Or, do I need to add 20 items in cart 20 times manually?

        November 26, 2016 @ 12:36 am
        • You will want to add each one manually with a unique hostname.

          November 26, 2016 @ 12:38 am
        • Were you able to successfully order Amber Jain? If not, let us know and we are happy to help.

          November 26, 2016 @ 3:42 am
          • Amber Jain:

            Yes, I ordered 14 servers and I’m happy with their performance.

            Is this deal still on? I need some more servers, if this black friday deal is still working.


            November 28, 2016 @ 7:37 pm
            • Deal is on but we are running low on stock so grab some while supplies last!

              November 28, 2016 @ 7:55 pm
  29. What about Ubuntu 16.04?

    November 26, 2016 @ 12:32 am

    Hi, Nick,

    I just bought one your KVM VPSs. The welcome email did not contain a URL or a username/password for your SolusVM control panel. How can I get that?

    November 26, 2016 @ 1:55 am
    • Apologies, that is still locked down and a module is used within WHMCS. If there is a function you are missing please let us know via ticket and we will see that we can add that in for you for the time being.

      Thanks Craig!

      November 26, 2016 @ 1:58 am
      • Craig:

        Hi, Nick,

        Your ad clearly said SolusVM control panel. Several features I really need are not available in WHMCS. It makes your VPS totally unusable for me. How do I get a refund?

        • Sorry to hear that, refund has been issued and we hope some day to have a better control panel system in place.

          Can you toss me a PM on LET? I can hook you up with another solution that will work for you :)

    Any plan to add more?

  37. 60% Off is appealing, (they did 50% off in Black Friday, 2015), but the previous frustrating experience of their support system keeps me away from them.

    I have used ChicagoVPS in 2013-2014. The billing via paypal was recurring, but they still sent unpaid alert email to me. And I forgot the payment was recurring (billed half year ago) and paid manually. Later, the recurring payment took effect and I had been charged twice. Their support staff said refund would be in “next refund batch”. Later they said that they were moving my ticket to the billing department. But still no refund. Then I exchanged several support tickets with them over several months and they were just keep asking about the transaction IDs (which I repeated in several tickets) and saying moving the ticket to billing or concern department again and again. After 6 months there was still no refund (until my VPS suspended).

    To be fair the VPS I used was fine. And I just noticed that chicagovps.net’s web design is much cleaner than 3 years ago. Hope their support system improves as well.

    November 26, 2016 @ 8:03 am
    • I am very sorry to hear about the issues you faced in the past. I looked up your account and see this issue was indeed back before I was on board.

      Am I okay to contact you via the ticket system or email to work out a way to make this right for you?

      November 26, 2016 @ 12:23 pm
      • I opened a new ticket for this. Thanks.

        November 26, 2016 @ 6:05 pm
    • ColoCrossing purchased ChicagoVPS in September 2015, and since then we’ve made significant investments into improving the back end, support system and infrastructure. Overall, the customer experience has improved and remains our focus. We regret the issues you had prior to our take over and know that we would very much like the chance to show you the new ChicagoVPS. Thank you! :)

            One more question. How come there’s no Ubuntu 16.04 in the OS selection?

            November 27, 2016 @ 7:47 am
            • I have it on a post-it on my desk to update it on the order form, mostly because some older machines don’t support it fully yet on our infrastructure, so we are pushing those to new machines that do.

              Please submit a ticket after provisioned and we will make sure you are on a compatible node for 16.04, thanks!

    Signed up for one of the offers listed above. Requested Ubuntu 16.04 be installed at (07:25)
    Got a response at (08:52) asking me to confirm. Confirmed at (08:57).
    (10:09) Told to stand by for further updates.
    (13:25) Informed Ubuntu 16.04 has been installed and to check it.
    (13:54) Informed them I could not connect to the server.

    Almost two hours since the last update. The entire day that I had planned for setting things up for a client has been wasted. This is only the second time I’ve encountered anything besides a minor since I’ve been purchasing services at Lowendbox. (Alpharacks being the only VPS I’ve purchased that was absolute garbage service wise and support wise)

    I really hope this is not the norm at Chicago VPS.

    November 28, 2016 @ 8:33 pm
    • Sorry to hear that, indeed not the norm just swamped with tickets as you can imagine so our usual 10 minute response time has turned into a 1-2 hour response time currently until the sale ends.

      Our technicians handle tickets in the order of last reply so you are about to be back up at top of the queue Robert :)

      November 28, 2016 @ 8:35 pm
    • Robert,

      Customer service is a top priority at ChicagoVPS. I regret that your support experience was slower than it should have been and please accept my apologies. The response has been tremendous to our Black Friday deal and we’re working very hard to service the demand.

      Your business is hugely appreciated, and know that we won’t let you down!

I got my VPS re-deployed on a different node and things are much much better. I am very much satisfied with how things are starting out and given my previous experiences with ChicagoVPS this sheds the light on them in a very positive way.

    FYI: Ubuntu 16.04 is not possible on your small (only?) Basic-VPS (possible to rebuild the VPS with your Ubuntu 16.04 template, but the VPS is not usable)… You should communicate this with your customers in advance.

    4 days with your (really fast) support to get an resilient answer.


    November 29, 2016 @ 9:36 pm
    • Just means you need moved over to a node that was updated to a kernel that supports that. We just recent started rolling our kcare so pretty soon all will be covered bud.

      Toss me a ticket number and I will see that you are taken care of Michael :)

        Hi Nick I’m facing a similar problem. I’m on the corporate KVM. I got Ubuntu 16.04 installed through online chat support, and proceeded to put in about 10 hours of work. The next morning I woke up, somehow I can no longer access my VPS. Checking my domain in browser, instead of the site I created, it now shows an Apache default page powered by CentOS! My root password no longer works of course, since my original Ubuntu OS has been replaced by CentOS. So now I’m basically locked out of my own VPS. Both online chat and ticket support have been very unhelpful. Can you please help? Thanks.

    5GB vps acting like shit. Im a old customer of Chicagovps for a long time. It seems it was just a mistake to purchase this server. Very frequent downtime. Right now server is 3 hours+ down. Location Chicago. Even I cant restart the server from Clientarea. Totally hell situation right now. Todays ticket : HHI-633230. Previous ticket KME-204128 which was opened at Nov 18, 2016. After purchase this 5GB ram based server 2 major downtime and each downtime exists for more than 2-3 hours++ Can you tell me exactly whats happening there!?

    • Permission to move you to a newer node in Chicago? We are working on phasing out some of the older hardware so this will be a nice benefit for you :)

    Can you please check this?

    I had the same issue with a previous order I made, and that was resolved in an hour.

    Nick, question for you:
    I’ve ordered a smart server from here https://www.chicagovps.net/services/dedicated-servers
    The specs for this service says 1Gbps port.
    But when I check the port Speed of my Server it says 100Mbps :(
    Can you clarify it please?

    December 2, 2016 @ 7:44 am
    • Actually looks like you are already at 1Gbps, I have updated the main post :)

      December 2, 2016 @ 12:37 pm
      • Dan:

        Yeah, I had a chat with the support team.
        I did a download test and it looks like I’ve got 1Gbps already.
        Checking the specs on my server I was getting different result anyway… don’t know why.
        Thanks for your help.
        All fixed :)

        • I am really happy to hear that Dan and you are most welcome!!!

    100GB Disk Space
    4TB Bandwidth
    100Mbps+ Uplink
    2x IPv4
    Windows Server 2008 or 2012
    $10/mo (normally $30/mo)
    [Order Now]

    I grabbed one of these windows DPSS for Black Friday,
    I see still available, I was wondering if I buy another one,
    can I combined the two servers have double specs

    December 2, 2016 @ 4:14 pm
    • Yes we still have them available but may want to scoop one up quickly as its the last 12 hours of our sale!

      Sadly we won’t be able to combine them due to the infrastructure setup, so would be 2 x 4GB Windows KVM’s for $20/mo.

    Comparing with virmach’s $10 Windows VPS (2cores, 8GB ram, 30GB SSD), yours have a better multi-core performance (about twice as theirs), however, the single-core performance of your Windows VPS is poorer (about only half of theirs). Besides, as you used HDD for storage, disk response time can be up to 11,000ms+ when adding Windows features such as IIS, language packages and so on.

      The CPU benchmark is performed by CineBench R11.5 and R15.

    The server I’m currently on is suffering massive performance issues. I sent in a ticket and was informed a couple VM’s were responsible and they had been disabled.

    I attempted to run an easyengine script to install WordPress and SSL. This should take under a minute. As of this message it’s been 22 minutes and it hasn’t finished.

    I’m really kicking myself in the butt for not dropping a thousand bucks into Impact VPS’s credit match deal. I was certain that a company run by Lowendbox would be the benchmark and I was excited about the prospect of moving many clients over to Chicago VPS. Support here on this forum is super friendly but the service itself has just been amazingly sub-par. Even if this gets fixed, at this point I’m certain that issues like this will be the norm rather than the exception.

    • I am very to hear about the issues you have had, please toss me a ticket number so I can look into this for you.

    I would look for another host, I’ve been using these guys since September and there are always issues. My server goes offline usually around 1-3am PST where the server is unreachable. I’ve submitted a ticket for the network issue and they want to reinstall my OS instead of checking out the real issue so the support doesn’t seem that good either. I’m writing this right now and my vps has been unreachable for the past few hours.

    December 4, 2016 @ 8:38 pm
    • Sorry to hear that, had an issue with a node starting last night so I suspect you were on that host node.

      What is your ticket number?

    My ticket #EXK-564279 was NO REPLY since 6th December, no one workings?

    Hi Nick,

    I registered for WinVPS 4GB plan. More than 7 hours past when I received VPS information but unable to connect.
    Please check ticket #WVK-310503. Tech Support is working on it. Perhaps there is an issue with Windows Server 2016 installation. I need your keen interest to solve it.

    • SBokhari:

      One day passed and still unable to use 4GB Windows VPS. Support shifted my VPS to a new node. It is very very slow. Nobody can work on such VPS. Any way to solve my issue.
