BlueVM Communications LLC are based in Honolulu and are dedicated to offering “low cost, high quality Virtual Private Servers (VPS)”. Their hardware consists of primarily Intel E3-1240 servers (@ 3.4GHz) with 32 GB of RAM and 4 x 1 or 2 TB RAID10 Hard Drives. We have featured BlueVM numerous times since early 2012. As you may have read on our forum, BlueVM have developed their own control panel called Feathur. A review of their service (which includes Feathur screenshots & serverbear link) can be found here. If you sign up, let us know how you get on.

BlueVM accept PayPal, Google Checkout and Bitcoin (upon request). Due to abuse of their previous refund policy, they no longer offer refunds on their services except in special cases. They provide a 99.99% uptime guarantee and provide service credits if they fail to meet this. According to their website, they undersell (typically they leave 500GB of HDD space free and 2-4GB of ram free). For more information, have a read of their Terms of Service.

  1. Just as a FYI speed tests may be a bit slow as a large number of people are downloading them right now…

      Hi,

      just tested a few times from Germany but Zurich test file was not downloading over more than 1.0 M/s, compared to an other testserver in CH where i got more than 50 M/s.

      Does anyone have the same test measurements?

      Thx,

        • mitsuhashi:

          That’s 99.972% on a 30-day month, which is really great. I probably wouldn’t notice downtime unless it’s for hours at a time, but maybe you should get your main page and ToS to match? 99.995% is something like 2 minutes per month, lots of potential for misunderstandings from bad ping test results or Cloudflare issues and such.

    What does it mean?

    “Due to abuse of their previous refund policy, they no longer offer refunds on their services except in special cases. They provide a 99.995% uptime guarantee and provide service credits if they feel to meet that.”

    If server doesn’t work they do not provide refund? 99.995% is 44 hours down per year. What if it is more?

    August 29, 2013 @ 2:56 am | Reply
    • Your account gets credited with us for any downtime exceeding our policy. If the downtime is longer than 12 minutes you can submit a ticket for the outage.

      As an example if it was down for 1 hour during a month and you purchased our $15 offer above that would mean your account would be credited $0.03 for that time. You can use that credit on another VPS or as part of the payment for your VPS next year. It may not sound like much, but if there’s a big outage (unlikely, but it does happen) you could potentially get a good chunk of your bill taken care of next year…

        So if the server is down for 5 days i can not get refund to move to a better one.

          Other words no matter how bad service you provide you keep the money. Is that even legal?

          Can you give me one reason why if someone for one month can’t get proper service with you can not get refund for remaining 11 months.

          August 29, 2013 @ 5:56 am | Reply
        • It is legal and a large number of companies have this policy. You’re paying for a VPS for a year whether you use it or not. The price listed here is as affordable as it is because your locking in your space on the server for that time. If you want to pay monthly open a ticket and we can invoice you $2.50 per month.

          That didn’t answer the question.
          “Can you give me one reason why if someone for one month can’t get proper service with you can not get refund for remaining 11 months.”

          What you want to suck people in then if they are not happy you don’t let them to get refund.

          I experienced it with chicagovps. They just robbed me of for 2 servers $60 and $25. I paid then have to wait for a month until they fix problems and I can’t get refund. Who can have his site down for a month?

        • Then pay monthly and cancel the second you aren’t happy. Problem solved.

          No it is not.
          Why would someone pay every months if he can pay you for 12 months in front, don’t worry for a year and be able to get refund if the service sucks.

          How someone can abuse refund policy?

          August 29, 2013 @ 8:44 am | Reply
        • You really don’t understand. We’re able to sell these VPS at this price knowing that the spot you’re buying is prepaid for 1 year. This allows us to save money on marketing due to turn over, prevent spammers, abusers and ddosers from signing up, decrease the amount of time a server sits missing a few customers, etc…

          It’s that price because it’s locked in for the year, eg: the space is sold we don’t have to worry about it…

          If we had a refund policy we’d have spammers, etc., signup and cancel after the first month, we’d have customers find a slightly better deal only to jump ship, thus we’d end up having to wait and sell that vps slot to someone else. This costs us money and thus we’d have to pass it along to you the purchaser.

          If you want to tack on 35% to the purchase price of one of those plans I’ll gladly allow you to have a refund policy on your VPS because that is the cost of allowing people to get a refund any time they like.

        • zijo:

          It is hard for me to believe $2.5 to pay for one month instead of $2 will stop anyone with bad intentions.
          Do you really think $0.5 difference will stop prevent spammers, abusers and ddosers?
          From my experience such policies exist only for host to protect themselves, if servers get bad and people want to leave they can’t.

          For example you advertise 99.99% uptime guarantee, but if the server is down for longer you don’t let people to leave. Sever can be down for 10 days and you will refund $0.5. It ‘s a joke. I personally believe you should make some better deals with that. I appreciate your answers, hope and ticket support is so fast:-)

      99.995 % actually means 26 minutes of downtime per year, *not* 44 hours.

      • Indeed, by using such a large count, small block size along with “oflag=dsync” honestly he’s not testing any real life performance. All that does is abuse the drive’s write cache, and that would make the test completely irrelevant to real-world performance.

        Use ioping and “dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync” to get a fairly accurate idea of what your VPS disk performance is like.

    • @Charles – Dallas is currently the most popular location so I/O should go back up once everyone is done installing their software and done DD testing the node. I’ve gotten 380 MB/s on these nodes before (when “full”).

        Good to know, thanks.

        My SSD VPS hits around 600MB/sec when I ran benchmarks on it. ~300MB/sec is very good. It’s good to find a company that has locations that aren’t on the West and East coasts.

        Sidenote, I ran a blacklist check and the IP I was assigned is all good. Definitely a good deal.

    • Seems BlueVM is a “reseller” of the very bad CHVPS, because they route most if his traffic over cheap HE peerings and Private Layer is the company behind CHVPS. Don’t expect good speeds from there…

      August 30, 2013 @ 7:46 am | Reply
      • None of our VPS are resold. We run our own nodes. I contacted the datacenter and they are switching our peering to tinnet sometime in the next 24 hours. I didn’t realize HE.net had such bad routing in Europe, but we’ll get this corrected.

    I can’t believe I got such an amazing deal. When I saw the price I was sceptical but $15 is practically a no risk investment. I am glad I decided to try because the server works really good. There feathur control panel is amazing. I asked to be migrated between there nodes to see which one gives me best connectivity and the Jordan at the support department had everything ready faster than I can make coffee!

    I have paid much more for hosting before, but rarely been so satisfied as now.

    This one is measured on there NY nodes. Truly amazing!

I had a VPS on ChicagoVPS with the same IP problem. I signed up with you guys because when I tested all locations, Atlanta was NOT coming up on 192.x IP range while the others were.

        I am impressed how lightly some people consider enforced move to other continent as reasonable option. If I want vps at X location and I order it because X location then Y location obviously isn’t an option as I wouldn’t order it in first place there.
        From clients point of view it’s solely your responsability (or fault if you want to use this word) and if you can’t fulfill your obligation refunding at request would be a reasonable act.

    Happily purchased BLUE4@LAX 2 days ago as it was good deal obviously.

    Everything works ok until last night.

    Today, I cannot access my server using SSH. (I didn’t install web server yet)

    I tried to check my server status from Feature control panel, it says “Error : Unable to connect to the host node, please contact BlueVM Customer Support.” and there is no options available such as rebuild, reboot, etc.

    I opened ticket 30mins ago and still waiting to be fixed.

      Is the port filtering in Zurich still an issue or is this now resolved?

      Secondly, if not, does it only effect SMTP traffic?

    Complete no refund policy doesn’t sounds good to me. You should leave option to refund on your (provider) fault. Like long outage, or non-working outbound SMTP should be the case for a complete refund. And this is against the law in many countries to deny refunds when your are unable to provide services you were paid for. Even if you hide those costs behind administrative/setup fees.
    If you want to avoid spammers and other non-legitimate users, you can just state that violation of ToS are the subject for non-refund. Like many other providers do.

    September 3, 2013 @ 9:43 am | Reply
    • Indeed, but many other providers also do what we do, deny refunds completely. Abuse of the ToS is not the only reason for this. As said above, it’s also covering administrative costs. Users may be eligible for a refund in Zurich if the port block is an issue, they’ve just got to push for it.

      I am sorry, but who cares if the certificate is self signed, thus invalid. All connections are still secured by the server. “But someone may have the private key…therefore can spoof/monitor the connection”. – The NSA has Yahoo, Microsoft, DuckDuckGo, Paypal, etc’s private keys already, but you’re not complaining about them. Searching the site for issues, then complaining in public is despicable.

      • Tom Robbins:

        Who tells you that I’m not complaining about those? Just because you seem to not understand what secure access means doesn’t mean that other don’t. You’re right that a self-signed signature _may_ provide the same security. But this is only true for as long as the server that the cert was made for and that is trying to authenticate is still in control of the rightful person. But unlike you have direct personal contact to the owners of BuyVM for verification, you will not be able to judge this. To keep this straight: I don’t intend to bully against BuyVM, they provide a great service for the price. But your judgement on security is more than weak.

    “Hello,

    Please contact us again after you have done the following:

    1. Read section 8 of our terms of service (which you agreed to before signing up): https://bluevm.com/tos.php
    2. When you’re willing to treat my staff with respect instead of being pissed at them for something that clearly is your fault, not theirs.
    3. After you’ve learned the difference between unmanaged VPS and managed vps.

    Then you may:

    1. Request an account credit which you can use on another VPS of your choice.
    or
    2. Transfer your VPS to a willing third party (possibly retaining some of your funds in the process).

    I’ve used BlueVM for a year, my experience has been pretty terrible.

    It’s gotten to the point where I’ve just given up on BlueVM. I don’t want to argue or bother having them fix their errors anymore.

    They keep blaming my configuration (standard ubuntu configuration), but I’ve rebuilded several times from scratch on a fresh install.

    The problem is basically that their service goes down a lot, and my VPS doesn’t reboot on it’s own. So basically, only use BlueVM if you plan on monitoring their server 24/7 and rebooting it manually or don’t care about uptime.

    Also don’t expect them to honour their SLA unless you really fight for it.

    I’ve just given up. They don’t give refunds. There’s a saying, if you lend a friend $20 and you never see it again, it was worth that $20.

        Well I doubt there’s much point, my subscription at this point is going to expire (like I said, I gave up, not worth my time fighting). You can check my traffic and cpu usage reports, I have barely touched it since I purchased it.

        If you’re interested anyway to improve, ticket numbers 278455 554080 346444 290582

        Here’s my uptime report for the year 2013, 196 days downtime, 33.16% uptime.

        http://i.imgur.com/MKz5Liy.png

        To be fair, whenever your node goes back up, my VPS has to be manually started.

        But that should count as downtime too, because why shouldn’t my server automatically start when your node comes back online? It’s a fresh rebuild from your own templates.

        Before you guys blame it on the configuration again, that can’t be it, because logging into the control panel and clicking ‘boot’ and it works just fine.

  98. I got two blue3 VPS from them for my friends’ sites. These two have got suspended since last Thursday. The reason for suspension, as I check on their website, was because of overdue payment. As I sent in a ticket, Jordan Perkins at bluevm said it was because of DDoS but he could not change the default reason WHMCS suspends with, while bluevm at twitter said differently. It looks like that bluevm is very inconsistent. Even until now, when they remove the suspended status on both of my VPS, I still cannot access them because they are yet suspended on bluevm CP. I have sent in three tickets since then but got no reply.

    My IP & VM are assigned to someone else and now am locked out of my own server! They are deliberately overselling same server resources to everyone else.

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.
