Since their last post, which received several positive comments, FlipperHost have expanded to another location – Los Angeles. The new Los Angeles node is equipped with: the E3-1270v2 CPU (8 Cores with/HT), 32 GB Ram and 4 X 1 TB RAID 10 Hard Drives, connected to a 100mbps port.

Flipper Host does not allow Minecraft gameservers or torrents. Proxies/VPN are allowed, but for personal use only.

They accept payment via PayPal and, they have recently added, 2CheckOut as well (thus all major credit cards can be accepted through 2CheckOut / Paypal).

    It says you don’t allow minecraft gameservers, but do you allow other gameservers?

    December 2, 2012 @ 4:42 am | Reply
    • We do not allow gameservers in general as per our experiences they somewhat are very much resource hungry and effect our nodes at peak times.

    Just ordered one of these servers, setup was quick and easy – no problems on that side.

    In the process of doing some quick benchmarks before deploying some services and network speeds don’t look great…. Also only has 4 cores and not 8 as mentioned in the promo.

    A git checkout has been running at about 5 to 20KiB/s for the past 10 mins :(

    • Well, ofcourse it is just exactly as mentioned at the promo 8 cores with /HT (Hyper Threading). This simply means 4 physical cores acting as 8 logical cores. (This is how HT = Hyper Threading works). Again in the promotion description it is not mentioned 8 cores rather mentioned 8 cores with /HT or Hyper Threading).

      On the other hand it just seems there was an abuser or 2 on the node at the time you managed to get that spped test. We will update your ticket at our helpdesk once those abusers are proven and suspended.

      Warm Regards

      • I would always ONLY ever say this is 4 cores 8 threads. The average audience would really get confused. They might not have an idea what HT or Hyper Threading means – all buzz words.

        Interesting, are these speeds the norm for this vps provider?

        December 3, 2012 @ 3:36 am | Reply
      • I would like to let you know that our latest node seems to have attracted a lot of abusers. Right now we are closely monitoring our latest 2 nodes and suspending the abusers 1 by 1. As a result you will get much better speeds once we are done with the abusers.

        Warm regards

  13. Just purchased the second plan the other day. So far so good though I did have a problem in the beginning. I couldn’t ping or ssh into the VPS. Submitted a support ticket and within 20 minutes the problem was fixed. Something about the IP routing. Other than that its been all good, though sometimes the VPS acts slow when preforming operations don’t know what that is about.

    • Hey Charles,

      All shall be running fine by now. Though still if you ever face such slowness or any other issue just shoot up a ticket and we will check for abusers and see if any other issues at the server or network. Just do not hesitate to open a ticket and we are around to assist you 24/7 in a matter of minutes mostly.

    • Hello,

      We apologize greatly for the brief downtime as we faced a sudden hardware failure at “lax2” which was reporting 16GB of ram instead of 32GBs all of a sudden. An emergency ram replacement was required as we did not want VE’s / clients within the node get effected.Please check for our announcement http://www.flipperhost.com/billing/announcements.php?id=7

      Again we apologize for the incident and the node is currently online.

      Warm Regards
