Predator Vault is a fairly new company created by a Portuguese Software Developer and a Dutch IT “addict”. Their objective is to provide VPS hosting with a quality which is hard to find in the VPS hosting market. Carlos told us that the company is registered under the name of an individual, in this case under his name – Carlos Rodrigues. That means the VAT number is the VAT number of an individual. But for security reasons, he is unable to provide his VAT number. Their domain is also very new, just registered this year. WHOIS information is not public for now. For those who have experience with them, kindly share your feedback at the comments section below.

Payment option includes Paypal and Western Union(Upon private message). Their website states that their services carries a 7-day money back guarantee, but with a valid reason for the cancellation only. The reason is only considered valid if it is due to an error on the side of Predator Vault only. We highly encourage our readers to read their Terms of Service before making any purchases.

    can’t disclose a legally required piece of information for security reasons? what security reasons would they be as i’m almost certain sure the Taliban won’t be filing tax returns this year

  2. The reason is that the VAT number used in professional situations is my personal VAT number.

    I’m not disclosing the VAT number to the public since it contains every piece of information related to “my person”, and not only to the services I am actually providing.

    This situation should be regularized in the upcoming months, depending on how we fit into the market.

    I hope you take that in mind,
    Thanks.

      Is there any legitimate reason why your business (sole trader, not a company) hides all contact info from its customers and yet you expect customers to provide you with their personal info? (hint: there is NEVER any reason for a legitimate business to hide its contact info from customers). Add to that the fact that it appears that you deleted your LinkedIn profile recently (the link is still available in Google search results), the fact that your business website is hosted at VolumeDrive which is known more for downtime than uptime, and the combination of those make it hard to take your sole trader business (which isn’t a registered company) seriously.

      “Intel Xeon W3520 4c/8t, 16GB RAM, 2x 2TB HDDs in Software Raid1, “

      That is a €30.00 SoYouStart server (SYS-IP-1) not an OVH server. SYS doesn’t provide support on weekends for their cheap used hardware so good luck if something goes wrong outside of office hours. (reference: SYS website: “Do you have a technical issue with your hardware? Our technical experts will take your calls Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm.”

    Heh… No, no, no. All wrong.

    “Carlos told us that the company is registered under the name of an individual, in this case under his name – Carlos Rodrigues. That means the VAT number is the VAT number of an individual.

    LEB rules – Private WHOIS -> Company must provide a valid VAT number.

    Company in name of an individual -> Still has a VAT, and it’s not personal VAT, it’s a company VAT.
    It’s probably not registered. Simple as that. Any company, limited, individual or by shares, has a VAT number.

    There’s no way there’s not valid VAT if he owns a company, period.

    This is just a SoYouStart server rent a few months ago. The WHMCS’s admin path is still the default one.

    Why don’t LEB staff verifies all providers who submit their offers? This is clearly a no-go deal, nor even a company. No contacts, no whois, no nothing. What the hell is happening here? Are we lacking quality offers? It looks like.

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.
