Their VPS Nodes are built with Supermicro chasis’s and are based around the E5-2620 CPU which runs at 2.0GHz with a turbo speed of 2.5GHz. For diskspace, they use Enterprise 6Gb/s SAS Hard Drives with Intel Gen 2 520 series SSD’s providing SSD caching. They operate their own AS network (AS54856) and own their IPv4 and IPv6 ranges, this allows them to provide services cheaper than other hosts who may be renting.

      They only peer to Cogent, my least favorite for peering, but the bandwidth generally seems good.

      • Not entirely accurate, we peer directly to cogent, and AS33302, which peers to Level3, HE, TWTelecom, RMIX, and Cogent. We just prefroute traffic across the lowest costs paths. If we peered to Cogent only a lot of people would have connectivity issues. If cogent has a route, it goes that way, if it does not it goes across the other path.

        We are researching connectivity options for a 2nd uplink, but we want to make sure they have better connectivity to Asia than what we see now.

    Is TUN/TAP enableb or possible? I see you support a range of linuxus but is it possible to support OpenSUSE 12 or to download a copy myself. This will be my first vpn and would like to run OpenVPN and maybe Java.

    Thanks.

  9. Sign up form shows 2 vCPU, so 4 or 2 cores is correct? :D

    January 28, 2013 @ 3:41 am | Reply
    • 2 vCPU, i.e. 2 virtual CPU should be 2 cores in this case.

      January 28, 2013 @ 9:31 am | Reply
    • No the posting above is wrong, I’ll get them to fix that. All plans below 1024MB have 2vCPU, 1024 and up has 4vCPU.

  16. All Paypal is having issues so were trying to process the orders by hand manually as fast as we can. Paypal seems to be having issues sending payment notifications to billing systems after payment so we have to manually dig up the transaction ID’s and load them into our system to verify payment.

    The staff are a great bunch of guys and have to say their customer service is far superior to every other VPS company I have used. I unfortunately had to drop their service due to complications outside of their control (cogent through TX causing sporadic response times). Since I was using it for VOIP I had to move to a different provider. I am still keeping an eye on them hoping that they will get better routes in the future because if/when they do I would definitely sign back up again.

    Going to give them a try. 2nd time with them, but had to cancel in 24hrs the first time due to unforeseen issues on my side.

    They were very quick to refund without any questions during my first purchase. To make up for it I signed up for a year this time. Thanks guys for not being asshats about refunds, especially in the first 24hrs.

      Just a followup, everything is running smoothly, and setup was instant.

      I have nothing to compare to (other than horrible Chicago VPS, which wouldn’t be fair to FRH to compare them too) but everything seems smooth and responsive.

      Using their Debian minimal template.

    The LEB link for the KVM-512 has an error.

    https://www.frontrangehosting.com/wh/cart.php?a=add&pid=39&promocode=HOHOHO

    It’s still coded with the expired HOHOHO code

    you need to use FRH40 instead

    Any word on when KVM 512 stock will be added? I’m only seeing KVM ***D plans on your website.

    February 4, 2013 @ 5:58 pm | Reply
  29. Due to the overhead KVM VM’s generate on the node vs OpenVZ were just about able to break even on the KVM servers. Faced with a choice of raising prices or just stopping offering those plans we have chosen to just offer our KVM-xxxD plans. They’re a better value with more CPU and Disk space, something that many people have asked for after trying a non D Plan and discovering later on they need that extra disk. So in the interest of providing a better customer experience and allow us to bring more servers online were just offering the D plans.

    The KVM-512D can be had for 7.00/mo with code 5127D

    Do not purchase vps from frontrangehosting, they have very horrible servers, once I found my vps is offline, then I asked them to fix it, then they gave me an empty online vps. I lost all data on their vps, and when I asked them where my data is, guess what they said:

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you. If you have any backups then please upload in the server since the data is lost.

    Thanks for choosing Front Range Hosting

    • iKY you know we had a power outage in the datacenter and your data is corrupted and non recoverable. Our TOS States that customers are responsible for their data and it’s your responsibility to be making proper backups. We are now making weekly backups, but that is no excuse to not have your own copies of your data. We did not delete your data on purpose it was an act of god. I’m sorry it happened, but you are completely misrepresenting what happened.
