    Worth it just for the backups alone :D I’ve had 2 VPSes with them for a couple of days now and the i/o and server have been fantastic.

    Hope that doesn’t change when the LEB kids hop on!

    This is wrong.. the LFC-128 ($27.30/year) is 128MB RAM / 256 Swap. Not 256/256… bummer ;/

    • The description for the service is 128/256 however for the duration of this promotion the RAM is doubled to 256. You only get double RAM if you use the promotional code.

      Also, can a LEB staffer fix the order links – the 256 is linked to the 128 and the 128 is linked to the 256.

    I just tried order and that stupid Maximind application stopped me.

    I did some searching on the internet and apparantly it’s accusing of allot of shoppers not having the right IP address to match the country.

    And other errors are being reported about certain countries being fraudulant.

    My IP address is in the United States. Philadelphia, PA

    I don’t think that the United States is considered a fraudulant country.

    Please turn that piece of garbage Maximind app off so an honest person (me), can order your service already.

    I also left you a support ticket after trying to order 3 or four times.

    Geeze!!!!

    From what I am reading on the net, allot of merchants are loosing business over this over strict, in accurate application.

    • We’ve contacted Maxmind about this as your order and one other we were sure was legitimate was also flagged with the open proxy stuff. Either way, your account is set up now.

    Comprehensive backup system and excellent performance for a cheap price. I’m surprised why more people aren’t vocal about this.

    • We’re new and getting our name out there is tough with the way the market is; however, we’re really trying to add in features that most hosts either don’t have or charge for. Reviews like Luma’s help also :)

    Signup form is quite buggy. A phone number beginning with + is perfectly valid, read up on international numbers. Also, when reloading the form if one of the details isn’t accepted, why are you changing fields that I’ve already filled in? Nuts…

    June 19, 2012 @ 6:32 am | Reply
    • The form is a standard WHMCS form and we haven’t went out of our way to change anything on it related to the use of international phone numbers. I’ve opened a ticket with WHMCS to see if they can provide an answer to why it isn’t working as expected. What fields are you saying are getting changed? I just tried with an international number and when the form reloaded none of my already entered details had changed at all.

      June 20, 2012 @ 7:37 pm | Reply
      • WHMCS responded that the form auto-detects the country code and it isn’t necessary to add it. I’ve asked them to submit a request to their development team to provide some sort of visual cue or information to this effect in a future release.
