Skylar also made a special poster for this event, which is shown here on the side.

Crissic accept payments via Stripe, PayPal, and BitPay, Credit Cards processed via BrainTree with a 10 day money back policy as standard. In short, their AUP forbids IRC, Bittorrent, P2P, Warez, spamming, or anything illegal in the USA, however does permit private proxies and VPNs. Additional high-speed bandwidth can be purchased for $2.50 per TB. Backups are made weekly on VPS nodes but of course you are encouraged to keep your own backups, they also have a fairly detailed step by step process for spam/bulk e-mailing. Their TOS is available here and AUP here.

    Hi,

    Is TUN/TAP supported and can it be used for personal VPN purpose?

    Thanks

    • Of course! Torrenting is still forbidden even if done via VPN, but personal VPN use is fine. TUN/TAP can be enabled in the billing and solus areas.

    is there vSwap involved?

    • Each OpenVZ package comes with an equal amount of vSWAP as RAM (EX: 1GB Special has 1GB ram and 1GB vSwap)

  5. For those interested in using Bitcoin to pay, BITPAY has been slow and has yet to upgrade our status so we can process more than $100 a day. May be limited and/or delays in processing with Bitcoin until they resolve. We hope to have that resolved soon.

    • I got my server setup the way I wanted it. So far it’s working reasonably well. Support was friendly and helpful.

      Disk I/O is a bit on the low side, though. I got 19.3 MB/s yesterday and 28.9 MB/s just now with the dd test.

      ioping is also a bit worse than my other servers.

      10 requests completed in 9.2 s, 43 iops, 175.8 KiB/s
      min/avg/max/mdev = 124 us / 22.8 ms / 64.6 ms / 24.7 ms

        • After moving to another node, the disk I/O looks better. 174 MB/s dd test, and ioping is much improved too.

          10 requests completed in 9.0 s, 7.7 k iops, 30.2 MiB/s

    The main difference between this offer ant your last one is more storage space but the second free IP is gone. What are the current email limits for OpenVZ yearly plans?

    July 4, 2014 @ 8:42 pm | Reply
    • Correct, 2nd IPv4 hasn’t come with the packages for a while due to ARIN entering stage4. Current email limits are 500 in a 10 minute period, obviously no bulk email of any kind is allowed.

      July 4, 2014 @ 8:47 pm | Reply
      • thekreek:

        Your AUP mentions “More than 400 Emails in a 24 Hour Period would be considered bulk email”, so what is a safe number in order to not be marked as bulk/spam?

        July 5, 2014 @ 7:25 pm | Reply
        • If it’s not hitting the SMTP filter of 500 in a 10 minute period, and it isn’t marketting/other “but it’s opt-in blah blah” stuff, then it’s fine. Have a super active forum that has lots of registration/pm emails and need the limit increased? That’s fine with us. Anything that resembles spam of any form, regardless of compliance, isn’t allowed.

  10. Crissic is my first VPS. I bought the last year OVZ Special Deals.
    And it isn’t a mistake to chose them.

    Support is always quick, and helpful.
    I learn a lot of managing VPS using Crissic.

    I trully hope crissic will be more successful in the future.

        We do NOT Allow “SEO Tools” – Not that CPU intensive as Ram is a more important factor.
        We do NOT Allow “Video Streaming/Conversion” – I love FFMPEG

        you should rename your tagline to Crissic Solution – VPS provider for web hosting ONLY.

        The IO was fixed;

        and after some ‘magic’ configs suggestions by SkylarM, more precisely,

        echo "net.core.rmem_max=16777216" >> /etc/sysctl.conf

        • Glad to hear we had been able to resolve it! Long story short, client was abusing IO pretty heavily, we tried to work with them to resolve, ultimately had to terminate.

          As always, if anyone ever experiences issues with their VM, drop us a ticket and we’ll always do our best to resolve the issue.

      • We have a new router on-site that we are working on setting up to replace our existing router as we’ve outgrown the router we have in place at the moment. This is a known issue with the existing router, and should be resolved this weekend with the new router in place. Speeds will return to normal once this has been completed.

  17. i’m satisfied client
    short review
    (+)one of few providers in lowendbox who has full control on their network
    (+)when submit ticket, i get answer from human not like robot or machine answers ( if you know what i mean :p )
    (+)i can sleep at the night without worrying my vps :D

    (-) No 100% uptime, scheduled / emergency maintenance, hardware replacement, ddos attack, software upgrade / patch that need to reboot node. in my mind this is acceptable for me

    Probably, I will order one more from crissic.net.

    Just want to spread more Crissic love. I know everybody knows them and their reputation anyway, but it can never hurt to give good feedback about good companies.

    I have my VPSes spread out over four providers. I keep my important stuff on Crissic. It has had service interruptions, I once didn’t react to a policy change in time and fell afoul of AUP, but every single time I’ve had to contact them, they’ve responded quickly, knowledgeably, and thoroughly. Actually, they’ve responded very quickly, extremely knowledgeably, and absolutely thoroughly.

    Can’t recommend them highly enough.

    2. IRC Bots/bouncers
    3. For OVZ256, is 750GB the bandwidth per month or for the whole year?

      just disable your VPN or whatever already when signing up VPS.
      Why would you hide your location when none of the VPS seller enforces geo-restrictions for purchasing.

    just asking for maybe a stupid question here.. :(

    is the traffic bandwith (for 1 year) will be re-traffic each month?
    or it just whole traffic for 1 year, without rebuilding the traffic (as the package)

    I’ve been using Crissic’s VPSes for the past year and I’ve never hit a brick-wall with the service or the support or anything. Unlike other providers, Skylar is a very nice person and he’d support you no matter how big is the issue you’re having. I wish them the good luck and all the very best in future! :)

    I just signed up for their 512MB Yearly plan, needed a VPS for my brand spankin’ new free .xyz domain :). I really love Crissic’s client area design, it’s nice and simple! I’ve only had an hour or so to play around with my VPS but so far I’m enjoying it.

    Does anyone here know what the uptime is like?

    • That’s fine, I don’t have any suggestions on what package to start with, likely a 512MB or 1024MB package.

      As a side note, we do not allow FREE hosting to be used with these units, but PAID hosting is okay.

    Signed up for OVZ512 yesterday. Got assigned node OVZ05, its under some serious I/O abuse. Opened ticket right away and they taking their time to do anything about it. My I/O speed range from 35.0 MB to 85.0MB. More often on the lower side of that range. I don’t think they have system in place to prevent I/O abuse. If you get on a good node, you will be OK but i think I’ll be requesting refund unless they going to solve this and prevent it from happening again. Might have to just stick with RamNode as something like that never happens there for over a year I’ve been with them.

    • Sly:

      They resolved the issue but just couple of hours later it was very low I/O again. it seems like their nodes get abused by customers too much. Most of the comments here point to low I/O, sure you can open ticket and they will suspend abusing account but it will reaper all over again just in a couple of hours. Today i requested cancellation and full refunds and they issued that right away. Will give them a chance again in a year if they still around.

        Technical tickets are answered 4~8 hours, while billing tickets are almost answered instantly.
        Responses to technical tickets are plain phrases left you in the dark what to do e.g. “Your container is currently offline…”.
        All tickets in each category are processed by the same person, thats why i’m thinking it is a sibgle person business who cannot delivere 24/7 support in emergency cases. The same person seems really busy on this forum, might be better to be more active on his/her business instead.
        Server performance is good, as long as the server is available, but from time to time it is not reachable for multiple hours.

        • Hello,

          I am typically the one answering support tickets. We aren’t a single person business, we currently have 3 staff employed. Small, yes, but not a single person — you just see me most often as the others work more behind the scenes.

          Billing tickets being answered instantly vs tech of a few hours isn’t anything to do with prioritization of tickets, that sounds more to do with the timing of opening tickets.

          We’re actively working to provide true-to-word 24/7 support, and anticipate having something in place in the not too distant future. We have extensive automated systems that would alert us to potential issues and we would act on it, regardless of the time of day — so if there is a node outage, network outage, etc fear not as someone is looking into it and working to resolve it as soon as we are notified of an issue.

          Sorry if some tickets come off as overly-simplistic. I’ll work on improving explanations in all cases so you don’t feel left out in the dark, as that isn’t the goal here.

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.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
