    Why on earth allow IRC but not Eggdrops? There’s no technical difference between irssi, psybnc or an Eggdrop. Not many people will be affected, but it seems a weird rule.

    Just looks like a provider who was once told that Eggdrops are bad, so they now don’t allow them.

    June 20, 2012 @ 4:01 pm | Reply
    • Nope. We look like a provider who’s DC told us “IRC is fine, just not eggdrops” and followed the terms we agreed to upon signup.

      • Spirit:

        The strangest thing is that eggdrop is not the only IRC bot, just oldest still actively developed. So everyone who use some other botnet pack is ok, just good ole eggs are from some strange reason no no :)
        I understand that GetKVM need to follow DC rules it’s just strange rule which makes non sense as eggdrop specificly is just one IRC bot from many.

        So it’s the datacentre who are idiots. Fair enough.

      • Hehe, as a former Eggdrop developer — I always find it funny when Eggdrops are specifically excluded :)

  3. hi,

    these 100mbits ports are private or shared ?

    Thank you.

    June 20, 2012 @ 7:42 pm | Reply
  4. @Tester.

    Shared by the virtual servers, but private links to our hardware node. You should be able to get a consistent 11MB/s usually.

    How long will this promo be available?
    Is it possible to un-suspend my account (got a free test vps from LET, cancelled it as i left it idling and didnt want to polute your resources, then i got suspended by your system).

    June 20, 2012 @ 8:15 pm | Reply
    • @Daniel van Dorp

      This promotion is available until we run out of stock (Already have on the Tiny package).

      When you say suspended by our system, your account was more than likely removed if you cancelled your services. If your having any trouble ordering please contact me at a.hawkridge@getkvm.com and i will get things sorted for you.

        Thanks for the fast reply! Too bad the tiny are out of stock already :(
        Thanks for your help and I will be in touch with you probably if there is a tiny plan and signup wont work for me!

          One more Tiny plan just opened up through a cancellation, if you want it send me a PM on LET or give me an email :)

            Thanks for your reply and sorry for my late response! But it is probably gone now I think?

    VPS Tiny’s price is reasonable but VPS Small is a bit expensive compared to competitors but Tiny was finished already.
    KVM VPS is the really the best in performance & management & I hope we get more offer on LEB.

    • In our defense we are operating on top of the range hardware, in a premium datacenter (IE Not Burst/Volumedrive/Datashack/Hetzner).

      The prices are pretty damn cheap for what your getting.

      • Tom Robbins:

        You might want to elaborate why Hetzner is not a good datacenter. Have you ever been there or had them colocate your hardware?

        June 24, 2012 @ 12:20 pm | Reply
        • Gary:

          He didn’t say it wasn’t good, just that it wasn’t premium.

          June 24, 2012 @ 1:48 pm | Reply
        • Tom Robbins:

          Maybe he never had a colocation at Hetzner and is just talking about the budget range of servers they offer?

          June 24, 2012 @ 2:45 pm | Reply
        • Gary beat me to it, i never said they weren’t good and yes i have had a server with them and wasn’t impressed with their customer support (But i wont go into that here).

          But actually all i meant were they are a primarily a budget DC, which they are, even the colocation is cheap.

          You wont even find any pricing on the Equinix website :P

    What’s your stance on running Tor middle or exit nodes on the VPS Small plan?

    June 21, 2012 @ 5:29 pm | Reply
    • I will need to confirm this with our datacenter and let you know as soon as possible!

      • Taylor:

        Did you confirm this?

        June 26, 2012 @ 12:42 am | Reply
        • Hey Guys.

          Sorry for the delay i completely forgot, just got the answer through now, Exit/Middle nodes are fine as long as they arent used for illegal purposes (IE, as long as we dont get any abuse reports).

          We may also have to throttle your port if it causes problems for other uses, but im sure you can configure this on your end (I dont have much experience with TOR, although its something i have been researching).

  8. PaulC:

    Given that I lost access to my pre-paid KVM VPS when VMPort was sold (the new supplier didn’t provide KVM packages and hasn’t replied to support tickets for reimbursement) I would be a bit suspicious of this. Will customers who lost out in the VMPort transition get transitioned to an equivalent KVM package?

    June 21, 2012 @ 9:14 pm | Reply
    • Hello PaulC.

      Im afraid whatever decisions FTNHosting have made were there’s to make, they should have certainly refunded any pre-paid services, but they are completely liable for any transactions (Past or present) for VMPort.

      With that said, if you were a customer of mine i would be happy to arrange a discount for you, just contact me if you have any questions, my email address is listed further up on this listing.

      There is nothing to be suspicious about, i sold VMPort to focus on a KVM only brand, no wrong doing took place on my part and i didn’t realize KVM services would be ended.

      I hope you can understand where im coming from!

  9. Thank you to everybody that has purchased services with us through this promotion. We now only have 10x Small packages remaining.

    June 25, 2012 @ 1:12 pm | Reply
  10. Just a quick update, there may be a slight delay with order provisioning as we are currently out of IPv4 addresses and waiting on a new allocation from our datacenter.

    This doesn’t usually take too long, but it may increase our standard 15 minute set up time. I will update this post once we have received our new allocation.

    Thank you!

  11. We have now sold out of both plans until our next node deployment.

    Thank you to everybody that purchased :D

  13. I tried to sign up but the “tiny” SKU isn’t available and the SSL certificate is invalid on the signup page. If both of these are fixed, I’d be interested.
