EaseVPS – $3.99/Month 512MB OpenVZ in Kansas City, Jacksonville USA and Manchester UK

Tags: , , , , , , , Date/Time: October 4, 2012 @ 8:49 am, by Chief

EaseVPSJacob from EaseVPS has sent an offer which his February Offer for an OpenVZ VPS for $3.99/a month with the addition of a third location choice that includes Manchester, UK.

OpenVZ VPS Starter

  • 512MB RAM
  • 1024MB Burst
  • 30GB Disk Space
  • 1500GB Bandwidth
  • CPU: 4 Cores
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • 1 x IPv4
  • $3.99/Month, $38.35/Year Direct Signup 
    (Promo Code FEBRUARY included)

Recently there has been discussions about EaseVPS having repetitive DDOS attacks affect their services and nearly being booted out of their DC. However their Jacksonville IP’s are still with VolumeDrive, so we can assume that a resolution was reached. EaseVPS claims “GBit network in all locations” which is correct to all their servers, however we are interested to see what actual real world results are achieved from Jacksonville as VolumeDrive is known to be over-subscribed and they also state “you can burst 100Mbit majority of the time with low ping globally.” We are taking that as servers are on 1Gbit, whilst VPS’s are limited to 100Mbit.

EaseVPS offers IP filtering in Kansas City, however “excessive abuse of this service will not be tolerated, for example if it causes a affect on the whole network.” It’s a bit like “we offer candy, but we won’t tell you how much you can eat before we take it away.”

Paypal and Credit Card payments are processed via 2CheckOut, whilst they also accept Liberty Reserve. Alertpay presently needs to re-review their account status.

    PING 199.19.108.249 (199.19.108.249) 56(84) bytes of data.
    
    --- 199.19.108.249 ping statistics ---
    3 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 2007ms
    
    
    

    The file doesn’t work and the IP doesn’t ping.

    How can we assume that a resolution was reached when they don’t work?

    Gbit Ports are available as a Free Upgrade in Kansas City, Advantages for manchester like Chief mentioned above is Low Ping times globally.

    • If it’s “probably” unavailable then why did you submit it with your offer?

      October 4, 2012 @ 5:24 pm | Reply
      • It’s actually looking like Jacksonville is returning, Since we migrated everyone from Jacksonville things are ready to be Reinstalled, New IPs, Then we are allowed back into the DC.

        Not sure if it will be online and ready by tonight, But definitely most likely by tomorrow somewhen.

        So if you order for JV VPS, Then Prepare for a 24 hour wait, Service starts from when the VPS is delivered.

    • Sure, That is allowed. And also like other people who use us for Proxies and VPN, We can offer IPs from different /24 subnets to your VPS without any extra added (ms) between each IP.

  7. @Jacob, thank you very very much for your incredible fast response. Semoweb is 38 ms from Dominican Republic (where I am) (Dominican, in the same island as Haiti, think of Sammy Sosa and Alex Rodriguez) Kansas is 85 ms to me and possible to South America which has many conections to FL. I would like to select the be$t offer in the best location. If Jacksonville is not available at the moment, I don’t know why it is mentioned in the post. But this offer seems also very good.

    • Julio, I thought I would have come to some negotation with VolumeDrive but they are refusing to reaccept our business, I am looking at other locations where we can expand to but for now KC/UK only.

      One advantage we have over semoweb Julio, Is a amazing network in Kansas city if I upgraded you to a Gbit port you would be able to reach 50MB/s + Which is around 400Mbps+ Burstable and We can match any offer they propose.

      Just drop me a email, or a ticket if you want to order. Thankyou.

          Since it’s one man operation, if he’s away, it’s down so many days.

        • Josh, That is very true. But from the attacks and now, We have Improved some features. Like IP Filtering in Kansas(We had a 8Gbit attack in Kansas City a couple weeks back).

          UK, You can see from the speedtest above has plenty of growth, and space behind it now.

      • NVM, this is DataShack and it’s better than HostDimes network ??? Explain please… *rolls eyes*

        Also FYI we don’t have the advantage of working at a data center since we do not offer services out of them ATM (the one I work at) — reason being is we have been dealing with HostDime for many years… aside from that our advantage is our age and commitment, amount of services we have with HostDime and the rapid growth we witness, as such we’re able to receive really aggressive pricing and pass the savings to our customers….

        Not sure why you’re trying to toss dirt all over us like if you have any advantage.. AFAIK your like 18 or something? Is that accurate? And a one man show, don’t get me wrong we ALL started there… but if you can match any offer we propose sure start doing those $12/Year VPS.. you have A LOT of advantages over us anyway so you can easily do it ;)

          DataShack have an okay network but what happens if something goes wrong while you are on holiday again Jacob?

          Also what about the Random downtimes before the DDoS which you never explained?

          You by far where the worst experience I have had, and I have used a lot of VPS providers including BuyVM, UrPad, HostDime (HD, VPSLatch, HDVPS), DediServe, BurstNet, Virpus, JagaurPC, WiredTree.

        • Majority of them providers are quite big, Well, All of them.

          So that comparison is not good at all, And I don’t go on holiday everyday so you should be safe on that side of things. :)

          Random Downtimes, Was before we had our own switch setup, Obviously a fault on BurstNETs Hardware so now that we have all our own gear the only thing that affects us is attacks.

          @Dustin You took my comment the wrong way, and by the looks of it you and matthew are just here to bash so I would appreciate it if you would be civil about the way you post, and what you post.

          BuyVM own network , switch and hardware and autonull so DDoS doesn’t affect them.
          Urpad Have a team of 4?
          Hostdime have the network and have access to nullroute.
          Dediserv are on leaseweb’s network and probably don’t have any issue with attacks as Leaseweb is pretty amazing.
          BurstNET has had these issues of a whole POP going down due to attacks.
          Virpus run there own network and can null IPs i think

    • Rebecca mentioned that they have Filtering available to Clients that require it in the New Facility, Which is why we moved all nodes to the new facility. They will not be handing out the service willynilly but only to the people that request it with a solid account standing (which probably will not be high demand) .

    • It’s just basic ACL’s.

      It’ll help with some UDP floods to a point but it won’t do jack for TCP floods alas.

      As Chief mentioned, though, no one seems to know at what point datashack will simply null
      the IP and possibly punish the host.

      • I’m not comparing what the Filter in Kansas can do, Compared to awknet. It is provided as a free service so no big deal.

        And if the protocol, ports are filtered then it should not be a problem I think DataShack has 10Gbit atleast. The ACLs are added at upstream, or the first entry point into the network, So it wouldn’t even hit the switches.

  11. Ordered a VPS from their Florida DC, control panel lists it as “active” (though the server is offline, and can’t be booted)

    Server is also in Kansas City (on Datashack’s network) rather than in Florida where I requested

    Also asked for Gentoo, offering to give them a VZDump for a template server, haven’t heard anything back from them on that ticket though

    Datashack’s network is pretty alright, for the price. Can be very fast at times. Nice US central location for low and balanced latency for most folks in the US.

    What folks need to know (and this is subject to change) is that this is an offnet type facility (the new colo location). Traffic at last check was still being backhauled to Wholesale Internet facility miles away in Oak Tower.

    Wholesale provides the tech and ticket support for Datashack clients.

    Both Wholesale and Datashack had a number of power related outages in the past six months. Be aware and redundant.

    I colocate with Datashack so I watch their network more than others. It’s seemingly only Cogent and HE connectivity. Nothing wrong with that, but I do see congestion often on Cogent utilized traffic.

    The HE connection, well, it flies. Speedtest:

    wget -O /dev/null http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test

      • pub crawler:

        Not seeing L3 anywhere in their mix at either facility.

        Anyone considering Wholesale or Datashack should look at the bandwidth mix and slight differences at either facility. They are both very good for the price (that’s why they are so popular with VPS companies).

        Main point, Datashack is very Cogent-centric and Cogent has ups and downsides depending on your needs.

        Routes where you’d expect to see L3 in the mix, like the 4.2.2.x nameservers go different routes at the facilities.

        From Wholesale’s network:
        2: 10gigabitethernet1-1.core1.mci3.he.net 0.382ms asymm 3
        3: kanc-b1-link.telia.net 0.321ms asymm 5
        4: dls-bb1-link.telia.net 12.214ms asymm 5

        6: ae-1-60.edge3.Dallas1.Level3.net 12.529ms asymm 8

        From Datashack:
        2: 63.141.255.129 0.262ms
        3: 69.30.209.221 0.395ms

        9: ae-2-70.edge3.Dallas1.Level3.net 21.224ms asymm 12

        Difference is Cogent vs.HE / Telia. 9ms difference that shows up in ping times as well. Small difference, but everything adds up.

        Mind you, this could be different depending on your VPS provider/upstream at these facilities. Folks can buy both HE and Cogent directly. Unsure exactly when the KCIX internet exchange will factor in, but don’t think either is pushing tons via that – the exchange looks a tad small member wise.

        • Aah.

          Nah the L3 was never in the blend unless HE/Cogent blew out. They had it listed for the longest time though :)

          It’s possible HE/Cog are solid enough in the Kansas area that they feel comfortable enough to not need the failover.

        This is the kind of thing that can’t wait for the engineering staff to return to work in the morning.

        There is a difference between having a few nodes or an entire part of a network down, and an issue on a few customers VMs.

        If your provider doesn’t have the staff to provide 24hr coverage on such an issue you should consider switching providers.

        What happens to the customers on a substantial timezone difference and their customers?

    My UK issues haven’t been resolved. It looks like all the UK nodes are down, and I would expect to be moved to other nodes in the meantime until it is fixed, but that it isn’t happening.

    • Our port was disconnected, Just being tossed back and forward with BurstNET Customer Service. So I did something about it and got a quote from melbourne for a Quarter Rack and it is being provisioned as we speak. (Ready as a plan B).

      If we do move to melbourne, Bandwidth changes would have to be reduced but with that we would have to either lower the price, or increase another resource for your benefit.

      Just going to phone them for a update on this now, Probably more tossing about…

    Here is the third email we have sent regarding your service(s) in Manchester, and due to the constant DDOS attacks we have had our Uplink disconnected from the datacenter.

    ETA: First thing at 8AM Eastern Standard Time, We will be making a phone call to reconsider this decission.

    Compensation will be given as this is no longer in accordance with our TOS/AUP which outlines Credits cannot be given for DDOS, However this is partly a fault on our behalf therefore we accept responsiblity.

    I apologise for this and anyone who wants to get up and online quickly, We can create you a VPS in Jacksonville/Kansas City and restore your service when the data is available.

    Regards,

    Jacob R.

      The VPS was also “allocated” 2048MB of memory, however it crashes if I use over 128MB (spitting out errors like “ls: error while loading: Cannot allocate memory”

        Maybe the node doesn’t have more than 128MB Free and that other clients are using all the RAM.

  29. Brief Trivia Update
    So BurstNET removed EaseVPS as a client, and Jacob had his parting shots on WHT ( http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1199259 ).
    Now having spent less than 5 days online in the new facility Melbourne UK from what has filtered through he has been asked to leave this facility as well.
    15Hrs ago on Twitter a message stating “More Information regarding UK will follow tomorrow.”

  30. pkr:

    Ordered a couple VPS with them in the UK which was online for less than 24 hours, then was told to wait for them to fix the issues they were having, then after 1-2 weeks they email saying that all clients need to be moved out of the data centre and put on the other side of the world in USA. Asked for a refund as I purchased a year of the VPS and it was moved to a completely uselsess location for me. Then was told that I was not entitled to a refund as over 1 week had passed since I made my order.. lol really you provide me 99.99% downtime and don’t have the decency to do the right thing and refund. I guess this is why they are getting DDOS’d in the first place, also they cannot handle these kinds of issues and the servers go offline and eventually they get kicked out of the data centers.

    • The reason Jacob got kicked out of burst was due to the thread here: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1199259

      If he didn’t make that he had a 99% chance of staying , He opened his mouth to much and they didn’t like it.

    • If you can let me know the associated ticket #, and the transaction IDs I will look into this further for you.

      The seven day money back guarentee. Also referred to as a cooling off period, this is a requirement by EU which specifies that companies must provide this as the minimum period. Since your product was not delivered as described I can probably make a full refund on them.

  31. Greg Spurgin:

    My story is the same as pkr. I wanted a UK VPS which after several days of emails was not supplied because they had data centre problems. When I said I only wanted a UK VPS they told me they could not refund me and I would have to have a credit – even though they never supplied the service I paid for. There is no reason that I could not be refunded as I paid with paypal, and I refund people with paypal payments on my website all the time. Now they are charging me another invoice, and I still have not received a refund, and I have never received an VPS.

  32. Greg Spurgin:

    This farce continues. This organisation refuses to refund my money even thought they never supplied the service. I will be forced to do a chargeback with my credit card provider. The history:

    Oct 15th order VPS – no VPS supplied
    Oct 17th place support request after waiting 2 days with no response.
    Oct 18th response to ticket says UK VPS will be provided the next day
    Oct 19th No VPS
    Oct 20th No VPS
    Oct 21st No VPS
    Oct 22nd I respond to the support ticket again and I am told I cannot get a UK VPS. I respond and get told I cannot have a refund and must get a credit

    I asked for a refund within 7 days, never received the service I paid for and STILL I am waiting on a refund.

    Easevps/Jacob = Soon to Be Deadpool. I currently have about 200 vps’s through about 125 providers…..(providers if you don’t see me in your client list please reply with your company info, always looking for more). I can honestly say this is the worst server stability and the worst customer service I have ever seen. To start I originally had 3 servers with Jacob, then one day one of my servers just went away??? No email, no explanation no nothing. So I have 2 now and I send a ticket in only to get Jacob claiming we don’t cancel servers? No regard to the records he can see and the previous emails with server credentials or payments that all show I should have 3 vps servers (GREAT WORK JACOB). So now I just have to accept that I have 2 servers I guess…..case closed. So one day (like 3 days later) my 2 servers are unreachable and again I send in a ticket. The response: Jacob could not see any problems….everything looks good….must be on my end I guess right. So then about a day later I get server set up details from Easevps…..like I just ordered new servers….only I didn’t. Here comes my 2 servers I complained about yesterday that looked fine according to Jacob. Both servers in the same DC and both on the same subnet (not impressed at all) about 4 tickets later instead of changing my IPs to what I needed (different subnets) I am forced to cancel the duplicate subnet server. IF YOU DON’T WANT CUSTOMERS SIMPLY TAKE DOWN YOUR SITE BECAUSE I AM GETTING VERY UPSET WITH YOUR BS AND CHILDISH TACTICS!

    P.S. FYI the reason you have soooo many DDOS attacks is because you piss off soooo many customers, providers and competition……they get a vps so they can find your newest IP range and they blast the hell out of it…….treat people right and the attacks will go away. Currently I want a refund for the last month of no service but Jacob claims no. I suggest to all that if you are having issues and he is unwilling to fix it or refund please send your complaints to his payment processing company (2co)….they do not like chargebacks and they should know how Jacob operates (chargebacks come with a $25 fee to the merchant so even if for some reason you loose Jacob does too……I am going to charge back my payment now and send a full report and copies of all correspondences now. Cheers Jacob! :-)

    • Just to clear this up, and I am not going to turn this into some huge disagreement, so this may be my final reply.

      In regards to your service, I will happily credit you for the downtime, and possibly a refund for the recent payments. The only thing that has changed my mind is these threats, and the childish behaviour(what a coincidence, apparently my behaviour was childish), but on the first few of your replies to the ticket, you threatened to chargeback multiple times, you have saved logs, and all copies of our conversations incase I deleted them (seriously. I have better things to do, and other clients to respond to).

      Heres your actions so far:

      When first approached to me, threatens to chargeback, after giving orders in the ticket if I was not going to refund or not, and then you create 5 comments c&p the exact same thing.

      What did you think this would achieve. Really?

      More on regarding 2checkout which considering we have processed over $15K within the time we have used it, and racked up $1.5K in Fees. To risk a merchant or a hundred bucks a month…

      Chargebacks cause a Inconvenience to 2CO and the merchant, when 2checkout is suspicious that a order may possibly be chargebacked, they start refusing payments from that consumer. I have seen this happen before.

      By all means we can part ways if that is what you wish, but all this drama was unneccessary.

    EaseVPS is terribly unreliable. I had two VPS with them and both of were abruptly wiped out without warning. Another guy I work with went EaseVPS on my recommendation and he had the same thing happen to him. And Worse his IP address got re-assigned to someone else and all his websites went down. He has support ticket opened but no response for more than 6 hours now. I am giving up… Shitty provider. Will stay away…

      I don’t have a ticket.. I am not going to bother with you anymore.. not worth my time.. But I checked with my colleague who has a ticket and he hasn’t seen a response to his ticket after more than 18 hours. Why should LEB be the support forum for tickets.. why can’t you use monitor your own ticket queue as promptly as you monitor LEB. Seems to me you are only interested in selling and not helping your paying customers.

      • We’ve been on a 200 Mile trip to our new UK Datacenter, and have had a busy day getting everything prepped.

        When we left all tickets was answered, but it appears some was not. I have gone through all these and apologise for the delay.

        If you have any major concerns, or troubles any time then go ahead and shoot a email off to easevpsmonitoring[at]email2phone.net or phone us on 0843 2894 022.

        We now have a new feature, see http://customers.easestatus.com/ (Ask your friend to login with his WHMCS Login Information).

        It’s designed for the convenience of the customer, and Ideal over any other external monitoring system. This system is automatic and sends emails upon downtime. We are looking into it filling a ticket as soon as you are alerted of any downtime.

        Period Checks are per 5 Minutes, due to the size of the database. We’re going to add per minute checks shortly, as we have a script to seperate the load out but for now it is 5 Mins.
