IPXcore – $4.63 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 14, 2011 @ 2:44 pm, by LowEndAdmin

IPXCore Adam from IPXcore sent me a new coupon code with better discount than the last time. Use coupon code LEBFTW to take the price of “IronVPS” down to $4.63/month. Here is the sign up link to make order, and here’s the spec:

  • 128MB guaranteed/192MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers with Phoenix Internet in Phoenix AZ. Since the last offer, they have now added a new ToS/AUP page. Interestingly they permits hosting of IRC servers but prohibits IRC clients and bots.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

    Just when you think youve seen everything possible in terms of ridiculous IRC policies this one comes along.

    IPXcore allows the hosting of IRC servers. IPXcore prohibits any other use of IRC software, including but not limited to: clients, daemons, bots, botnets, BNCs.

    IRC daemons(normally abbreviated to IRCd) of course being the server software, so on top of being ridiculous it contradicts itself.

      Yep. Why the hell would it be ok to run a server (ignoring the contradiction later) but not to run a client? Their TOS seems quite sensible apart from that, but don’t they get someone to proofread things? :/

    • The word “daemon” is used to cover ourselves. We’re not allowing any kind of bot, specifically regarding: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warez#Automated_warez_distribution_via_IRC_robots

        How about admitting its down to cluelessness, that is the only possibility.

        An IRC daemon is the server software you claim to permit earlier in the same sentence. It has no other meaning. Clients, bots and BNCs are not IRC daemons.

        If you want to play the wikipedia game try http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Internet_Relay_Chat_daemons. You will notice every piece of software listed there is an IRC server, which the first sentence from your TOS claims is acceptable. Bonus points go to those noticing that the link you provide does not feature the word daemon anywhere.

        One day a wannabe VPS provider will bother to understand their TOS rather than cut’n’pasting it from somewhere that looks pretty and randomly changing a few words.

        Damian @ ipxcore people here try to tell you the difference.

        This would have sense: IPXcore allows the hosting of IRC clients (and channel bots) but prohibit IRC servers – and not opposite as you do.

        Many of us are connected to some irc server/network with irc client and some of us run some channel bot like eggdrop (http://www.egghelp.org/whatis.htm) while running own IRCd (irc deamon – irc server) is completelly different story and in hands of some unskilled newbs introduce bigger risk than personal irc client, BNC, channel bot…
        It makes no sense to prohibit irc clients but to allow irc servers. Whith a bit of common sense rather allow irc clients and prohibit irc servers if you feel the “need” to prohibit something irc related.

          Perhaps they have a reason for allowing irc servers and denying irc clients. I’d sure love to hear it. :)

          btw. your link about “Automated_warez_distribution_via_IRC_robots” is so damn outated. It’s not like 1996 – 2000?
          Do you use torrents? Or your friends? Well no need to say anthing regarding that. But how often did you download something through irc bot? Most like NEVER as this isn’t really known and attractive way to share files and nowaday no one do that (more or less).

          Most people use irc bots like eggdrops, mechs, psotnic for specific channel task like keeping operator status, logging, trivia, stats, user limit, etc…
