  1. I just want to point out that our starter packages have also been upgraded to 256mb RAM. In the post it says 128mb but it is 256.

    Thanks,

    Will Xen be available and discounted again? Do you have ipv6?

  3. They may be a sale in the future, but as of right now we are out of stock. We had a few large orders that pretty much wiped us out. We do intend on deploying a new machine in the next week or so.

    Thanks,

    We are working on an IPv6 deployment, but waiting on our upstream provider to do and have official routing for it.

    Thanks,

    ChicagoVPS is pretty interesting VPS host I would put them up to par with QuickWeb in terms of “legitness”. They own their own hardware (including networking and storage). They are not resellers (that I know of). The DC where they colo their servers (Chicago) it’s world-class. Their technical staff is very knowledgeable and considerate. They wobbled a bit when asked about allowing adult content to be hosted and delivered in their VPS. Their official answer was that, according to their AUP, they do not allow adult content to be hosted in their VPS — which is great news for people/businesses who don’t want to have to fight for the underlying machine and network resources with high traffic/high use adult sites.

        Just to reiterate, I’m in no way associated to ChicagoVPS. My review is based on my direct communication with them while researching a possible VPS host move. We’re currently with Linode and Slicehost (both of which have been bar-none, btw) but their pricing structure has remained on the steep side even as hardware and bandwidth costs have plummeted in the last 3 years.

    how many maximum of VPS per node

    December 23, 2010 @ 5:48 pm
    • @amangju,

      That is a tough question to answer. There is no way to give an exact amount. One node could have all starter packages on it meaning we can fit lots of VPS’s on it, while another node could have all enterprise packages sold on it, limiting it to just a few VPS’s. What I can say is that we do not overload as we stand behind out performance 100%.

      If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.

      Thanks,

      Chris
