    About two months ago, I’ve sent you a message through the ticketing system that your Looking glass IPv6 does not work. It still doesn’t work. When are you going to fix it?

    • Shinobu,

      Sorry about that! We’ve resolved the IPv6 configuration error, and we have confirmed this is working once again. Let me know if we can assist with anything else!

      • Shoot me an email with your traceroute — Looks like theres some congestion. We monitor our speed from a number of different networks (generally fellow LEB providers) on a daily basis to mitigate issues such as these whenever possible.

    • We have an ISO available, but have not obtained a template yet. We expect to have one shortly.

    • The offer here isn’t currently integrated into our website. This offer is for NVMe SSD, while our lower cost offering is for standard SSD. We plan to make both lines available to allow customers to select the performance they need. NVMe based systems are faster than SSD. The cost difference is based on the additional cost of NVMe disks over SSD disks. We will not be phasing out either platform, however we’ve had strong demand and upgrades by customers to the NVMe based systems.

      We have active deals for our non-NVMe hosts here on Lowendbox as well, if you prefer that product!

    Hi!

    How do you handle rDNS for ipv6? Do I have to open tickets for them or I can set them on my own using the cpanel?

    Thanks!

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
