Updated December 2011 — website has not bee resolving since 7 December, and it has been reported that it’s now rebranded as “RoadLayer”.

RapidoVPS Via this WHT offer. RapidoVPS is a Turkey-based hosting company (their Turkish site here (?) with the same template, which is also used by Newwebsite.com) who is offering cheap VPS in 3 different locations in Europe. UK, Germany and Netherlands — or France if you want Windows but not at the low end box price. Their “Package 3” is $6/month with the following spec

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 40GB storage
  • 1.5TB/month data for UK and Germany
    500GB/month data for Netherlands
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Their domain has only been registered since October 2010. Both NS on the same IP address as the website, which reports itself as PinkHosting.net (btw, nothing pink about that website, and also registered by someone in Turkey) and GloboVPS.com.

    I wouldn’t trust a Turkey-based company my data, which is in business since october. And their offer is not bad, but you can find a lot better deals :)

    I’m not against Turkey, but in the EU alot of fraud over here comes from Turkey. I wouldn’t try this.

    • I’m only using it for web proxy. So far there is no complain, and I haven’t got any downtime.

      The only issue I got when I can’t access my VPS happens to be the fault of my ISP provider’s routing, so when I use public DNS, it works.

      The language barrier is also something that we have to be more patient, that sometimes I misunderstand them, and they misunderstand me.

      I am not sure, but it seems that RapidoVPS.com, Vlexi.com, GloboVPS.com, PinkHosting.net and UmmuGulsum.net are related.

    I purchased their $2.50 VPS services in both the UK and France and configured them as personal proxy servers. I pass quite a bit of traffic through both of them. Two months so far, and no real issues. I have had to contact them upon account setup as the link to their control panel seemed to have been unmodified from a template, but they were quick to respond and give me the correct information.

    It’s not the most polished shop in town, but the service has been reliable, plus it’s good and cheap. Four out of five stars.

  5. I have many previous bad experiences with Turkish VPS hosting.
    The last time was with globalturko.com on Germany servers (bydor.com), which suddenly after a 9 month of good hosting started to “fade away” and after a month it “crashed” down. After almost 4 months from that time i still waiting for the backup’s of my server.
    Maybe RapidoVPS it has a good platform but i learn the hard way that cheap is not always the solution.

    as Christian wrote… “you can find a lot better deals”

  7. Reaching this site is an irritant due to it not resolving for me, stupid DNS.

    So, I was thinking about getting a VPS with RapidoVPS but….

    #1. Both their TOS and AUP have Company_name as the Business name, so they are using some type of cookie cutter template that they couldn’t be bothered to even update with their own credentials.

    #2. This offer states they offer Netherlands VPS, but if you check their website they only sell UK/France VPSs

    #3. There is no test ip to be found on their webpage for any of their locations.

    #4. The INFRASTRUCTURE part of their page once again has not even been modified.
    “You can modify this page in ‘templates/episode/extras/infrastructure.tpl'”

    So, does anyone have a vps from this company? If so can you please let us know how the vps is doing, some benchmarks, test ip, stability, etc? If I can get a little more info, I may actually be interested as the prices are very realistic. So far though, looks like a fly by night company.

    We will redress to all grievances. When you have a problem, please open ticket on Roadlayer.Com

    I knew it was coming when all nodes and their website went down for roughly 24 hours without any notification earier november.

    I would not trust this new company, it’s also turkey based and lots of 404 links on their site.

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.
