      You would be surprised what people switching to VPS from shared hosting often have in their minds.
      They expect no root access, subdomain count limit, database count limits, FTP user limits, etc.
      It doesn’t harm to mention that they just get full root access.

    No Ubuntu 12.04 offered?

    Ubuntu 11.10 was EOL (End of Life)on May 09, 2013. This is not a good offer from a security point of view…

    • Probably still got a lot of centos5 nodes so offering 12.04 would only cause issues for the older nodes.

      July 18, 2013 @ 11:48 am
      • wm:

        Understandable about Centos. However Centos 5.x is not EOL until 2017. I would not purchase a VPS from any provider that offered EOL products such as Ubuntu 11.10 if I specifically specifically/required Ubtuntu and did not have the option to upgrade to a supported version.

        • DalComp:

          If the host node is running CentOS 5, then Ubuntu 12.04 is not supported due to kernel issues.

          July 18, 2013 @ 9:42 pm
        • 12.04 is available within SolusVM or on request. The reason its not on the order form is we do have some Centos 5 servers which 12.04 does not work on.

  5. I think if this vps is Xen,it is the best choice.

    July 18, 2013 @ 3:34 pm
    • We will be rolling out XEN VPS very soon.

    Aren’t these boys owned by ColoCrossing now?

    July 18, 2013 @ 8:12 pm
    • According to this customer, yes.

      Their credit card was charged by Colocrossing, not HVH.

      July 18, 2013 @ 9:16 pm
      • Ah, well Colocrossing overlords have removed the link I added as proof. Doesn’t surprise me.

        But YES. A customer posted a thread on vpsBoard asking this same question, because his credit card statement from his service with HVH was charged by Colocrossing.

          manndude i think you’re being a dick by trying to get users from here to your forum, and i think this is a childish move !

          July 19, 2013 @ 12:31 am
  7. The link was redacted because we’re not going to allow you to advertise your forum here. You’ve asked for yourself and content to be deleted in the past. Hudson Valley has a financial relationship with ColoCrossing and is operated by Ernie.

    July 18, 2013 @ 9:38 pm
    • Yet you never removed my content or my account. =]

      If the information existed on LET, I would have linked him to that instead. Though I feel if the subject came up on there, the thread would be removed. Was just trying to answer the fellow’s question.

      July 18, 2013 @ 9:42 pm
      • At least he didn’t remove your comment…

        July 18, 2013 @ 9:44 pm
        • Would have made more sense if he did. My repsonse without the link seems like I’m talking about an invisible or non-existent HVH customer, haha. =]

          July 18, 2013 @ 9:48 pm
          • Will:

            I have hosted my website with hudson valley, I never had problem at all for past 6 months. Now I even bought more VPS from them, it doesn’t matter to me whether it is colocrossing or HudsonValley, it is all about good service and good response.

            Don’t be troll.

            October 17, 2013 @ 1:55 am
      • Go right ahead and post it on LET if you like. :)

      Hi Sysadmin, could you clarify what this ‘financial relationship’ means? It’s a bit of a vague term.

      July 19, 2013 @ 6:44 am
      • DalComp:

        I bet you wouldn’t get any more specific than that. ;)

  8. Is the 40offleb one time or recurring?

    i was bought yearly plan vps 128MB . i like this service because the speed is very fast for vpn and cool support .

    I bought one of the 25/6months deals in Buffalo NY last time they posted here. While the service itself was good, and support was generally friendly and helpful… the IP address they assigned me was in the SORBS spam database, preventing me from using the VPS as a mailserver (the intended reason).

    I was given an IP in 172.245.8.0/21, and their support was unable to provide me with an IP address that was not in that range.

    Contacting SORBS is an absolute nightmare and takes weeks to get 1 IP off their list, if they ever actually get around to it.

    July 19, 2013 @ 12:53 pm
    • Did you open a ticket with support? If so whats the ticket ID?

      July 19, 2013 @ 2:37 pm
      • threz:

        Ticket #681281. I asked a few times to change the IP and was told it “wouldn’t be worth it”.

        I did get my specific IP off SORBS after ~3 weeks, but it still bounces from some mail servers that don’t seem to update their spam lists. It was a huge frustration because it directly affected my ability to email clients.

        In the end, I moved to a different provider for hosting the mail server, even if the issue wasn’t directly the fault of HVH.

        July 19, 2013 @ 2:45 pm
        • Threz;

          CC have a few large ranges on SORBS due to obtaining IP space from a home ISP so the ranges were listed due to being ex-home users, I had the same issue but after alot moaning they did swap the range but it was only a /29 so if HVH have like a /24 it would mean re-numbering all those clients… If you are the only one having issues with it you can see what they mean with “wouldn’t be worth it”.

          I am also pretty sure SORBS isn’t really valued in terms of mailing anymore is it? I know Spamhaus is a major one but wasn’t aware anyone took SORBs seriously..

          July 19, 2013 @ 2:49 pm
        • Ive responded to your ticket with an alternative IP thats available. Im sorry for any inconvenience.

          July 19, 2013 @ 3:32 pm
        • threz:

          Thank you for the offer Ernie. As I mentioned earlier, I have already moved the mail server to somewhere else… but I may still take you up on your offer.

          To be clear, I don’t blame HVH for being assigned an IP range that is on the SORBS dynamic list. I truly believe that SORBS and the people who decide to use them are the real issue, but it’s not realistic to just avoid sending mail to those servers.

          I’ve learned now from this ordeal to send a sales ticket in advance asking for available IP ranges if I ever want to set up another mail server…

          July 19, 2013 @ 3:56 pm
  11. I understand if you would like the new IP just let me know via the ticket.

    July 19, 2013 @ 3:59 pm
  12. Charles Teague:

    I went to the website to purchase the $15.00 plan, but there was no way to order it. The sales person on chat informed me that it is out of stock in my country. I am in the USA.

    July 20, 2013 @ 4:10 am
    • What error are your receiving? Can you email me the error?

      July 20, 2013 @ 12:44 pm
  13. Owkaye:

    Ernie,

    I just emailed you at the suggestion of Emily on chat. My email included 4 screen shots of another host’s control panel to show you examples of their OS’s and Turnkey appliances which they allow me to install and reinstall on demand via their CP.

    What I hope to see is similar screen shots of YOUR OS’s and appliances, so I can see if your list is complete enough for my clients. My work for them entails installing, configuring and testing their software on various OS’s, then developing step-by-step installation instructions so their customers know exactly what to do when installing on various OS’s.

    When do you think you might have time to respond to this inquiry?

    July 24, 2013 @ 7:54 pm

    The billing portal and client area is not protected by SSL. Very Very BAD. Like a fool I assumed that it was SSL protected I ordered, now I regret it.
    If I type
    https://billing.hudsonvalleyhost.com/index.php
    it redirects to
    http://billing.hudsonvalleyhost.com/index.php

    What kind of VPS company doesn’t take security seriously?
