LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Deadpool 2014 #2

Tags: Date/Time: September 26, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

It’s time for the second deadpool post of 2014, this time featuring three hosts that have bitten the dust over the past few months. Ironically enough, one of the deadpooled providers was one that called another deadpooled provider a SCAM… Let’s get cracking!


Dedicated MindsDedicated Minds

Status: Server not found/website offline/nodes offline

The minds of Dedicated Minds were not as dedicated as we anticipated when they launched. Reece Chroftes registered Dedicated Minds as a company in May 2013 together with Tyler Curtis, but Reece left as a director shortly after. The company is still active but the website is nowhere to be found. We did feature Dedicated Minds once on LowEndBox and the response were mixed judging by the comments to that post. After a period of slow responses and downtime they seem to have vanished not to be found again.


KVMVPS.us

Status: Server not found/website offline/nodes offline

KVMVPS.us was run by the eccentric Ryyan Hasan (“Sunn”), who has meanwhile been banned from LowEndTalk for acting racist against another LowEndTalk member. We have never actually featured then on LowEndBox, but they were quite active on LowEndTalk offering KVM-based VPS with a 100% uptime guarantee from New York City. It was a bumpy ride either way and it ended before it caused too much drama.


IntroNetServers

Status: Server not found/website offline/nodes offline

Criticized by KVMVPS.us owner Ryyan Hasan, IntroNetServers deadpooled somewhere in May. They offered cheap VPS from SingleHop’s Amsterdam location and have made several offers on LowEndTalk. This is another host that has never been featured on LowEndBox. They offered VPS starting at $2 including a cPanel license, a free SSL certificate, and a free domain name. Needless to say, this is the least unexpected deadpool in history.


This concludes this deadpool post. If you know a host that has deadpooled, please let me know via PM on LowEndTalk.com!

    Had a VPS with them for about a week before they decided to disappear (PriVPS). They were only around for about a month or so though.

    • I agree, bought a small vps from them and all we had were problems. I think they went down from then on.

      Agreeing with this. For the past few months my download speeds from the server appear to have been throttled, whereas upload speeds remained quick.
      Multiple downtimes, ignored tickets or non-answers….

      Stay away. Even if it looks like a good value, stay away.

    BitAccel should be inside also. I have bad experience with them. Server not stable. Never reply ticket. And now the owner operate with new brand called VirtuaVPS. The worst part, the owner is one man show.

      LOL WHAT? I don’t have any open tickets in the queue, if you opened a ticket it would have been answered. VirtuaVPS is not our brand, thank you!

      The Deadpool is a list of places that are no longer operating, not a list of complaints. If you dont understand simple things like this then most likely your problem with BitAccel is your problem not theirs.

    IntroNetServers seems to have resurfaced as IxoNetworks/SolidDragon which now seems to be heading toward another deadpool.
