Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: May 22, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

Radoslav, from FtpIt, has sent in a whopping eight offers this time: four of them are KVM offers to celebrate them launching KVM, and four of them are a restock of their OpenVZ offers! The KVM offers are all located in Dallas, TX. The OpenVZ offers are split between locations: two of these offers are in Buffalo, NY; and the other two are in Los Angeles, CA. FtpIt celebrated their one-year anniversary in January of this year. The guys at FtpIt have been slowly building a stable business over the past year and it’s a good sign they are still here. Each of their OpenVZ servers are powered by the Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 CPU, 32GB RAM and 4 x 1TB SATA Hard Drives with LSI Hardware RAID10. They’re using 120 GB Intel 520 Series SSDs for their SSD offers and for caching. KVM machines are backed by host nodes with Intel Xeon E5 CPUs, 128GB of RAM, and SSDs for caching. IPv6 will be available in Dallas soon. Let us know how everything goes should you try one of these out!

    Non refundable? Then why does their main page state, “a 30-day money-back guarantee.”

    I have had them for a few days on KVM, and I don’t think these people know what they are doing.

    The VPS keeps shutting down and they keep asking me about wanting access to my root account. Huh?

      Maybe you actually don’t know how KVM works. Your provider cannot log into your box like openvz. So for troubleshooting, your provider must get the access from you if its a KVM.

      • Trent:

        Oh? Not sure how the can “log in” to a KVM guest if it is not up.
