    Not fair!

    I already have a 5$ 100GB VPS with you. Do you want to compete on the next OVerZold product for US?

      You can just buy a new VPS and transfer all your files via SSH and SCP to the new one. It will take you some time. ZIP your server and Secure CoPy to the new one but it’s no big deal.

      I also have the previous offer. I’m satisfied. I will go for LEB1 50GB for that price will do.

  3. Tom,

    Please email support@reliablehostingservices.net and we would be happy to honor the prices on this special for your current account.

    We do not oversell our servers, as we bring on new customers we simply add new hardware nodes as we fully own and operate all of our equipment, we do not have to “rent” servers from other provider(s) to add additional capacity. Please let me know if there is anything we can help you with.

    Thanks,

    Jeff

  4. How much/is it possible to get extra resources? IPs, specifically. Speaking of IPs – you guessed it – any IPv6 or plans for it? (By the way, soon is a trademark of BuyVM that they use for stock, so you can’t say soon)

    • Just noticed that you do have IPv6. My bad. Question about extra of other resources still stands.

  5. I’ve bought a vps from RHS in an offer from WHT for $2.5 ( 100GB disk, 512MB memory, 1TB bandwidhth)
    – Support / Live Chat is very fast and helpful (Jeff). I asked for Debian 6 32bit template in the SolusVM, and it’s there after several seconds. 10 from 10 :D

    My only problem is with OpenVPN, tun/tap is there, enabled and available from SolusVM, but every time I started the OpenVPN, it’s always said that cannot load tun.

    April 17, 2013 @ 10:59 pm | Reply
    • Erawan,

      We’ll look into this shortly. Sometimes in SolusVM when you enable tun/tap you have to click “Shutdown” in the control panel, wait for it to shutdown, then click Boot. If that doesn’t work we might need to look at the module or your config. Can you please open a ticket by emailing support at reliablehostingservices dot net so we can track your issue?

      Thanks!

      Jeff

      I had the same problem. You need to make a sym link because they have tun in /dev/tun where in openvpn it’s looking at /dev/net/tun.

    • The problem with tun/tap is solved. :)
      Thank you very much for Jeff, or anyone helped me :)

  6. Server received and set up. Network speed is about what you’d expect for a 100Mbps line, averages 10.8 MB/s. I ticketed for IPv6 addresses and received them, almost exactly a half-hour response time. Unfortunately, they don’t appear to work. Jeff said it would be taken care of, once orders had settled down.

    From the ToS:

    User may not:
    b) Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.

    That’s pretty vague, and would also include httpd, mysql, sshd, and so on.

    Not sure what you’d use the VPS for then.

      For clarification, I guess that falls under the section of “Shared / Reseller” hosting in the AUP, which is odd, because they make no reference to any shared hosting options on the main site.

      Not sure if that’s just a boiler-plate AUP.

      April 18, 2013 @ 3:53 am | Reply
      • It is left over from when we offered reseller and shared web-hosting. We currently don’t offer those products any longer however we do still maintain some long time customers that have the product so we leave it in the ToS.

    Interested in LEB3. Is the promo price locked in for good? (Meaning, will it remain $7.00/month over the years, or will it increase after a certain period?).

    Also, even though this is unmanaged, can some initial, *ONE TIME* support be provided in getting the website up? (just an index.html deployment, and nothing else).

    Just set up an account, very fast provisioning.

    Same price & storage as advantagecom from a while ago — http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/advantagecom-60year-512mb-xen-vps-with-199gb-storage/ — but RHS has ~150MB/s write speed instead of ~20MB/s, and more RAM.

    Seems like a great deal on storage! Supposed to be raid 10.

    • The “hostname” field is just a basic name for your VPS. If you don’t have a domain you can put enter it as something simple like “myserver” or “vps1”. Without quotes of course!

        I’ve bought one of the 2 dollar vps’s but mine is stuck at around 200kb/s transfer speed. Are the speeds capped and if not do you know why mine wont go above 200kb/s when transferring files?

    This looks like one of the best offers I’ve seen. 50gb + 512mb ram and from a company that’s actually established. Plus they are local to me, so I am thinking of picking one up later on.

  18. vic:

    How much longer will this offer be available?

    Also, since this would be my first VPS, can somebody post some speed benchmarks of their setups to some EU countries, or explain how the networking works since I heard something along the lines that everything goes thorough either Germany or UK, would that be the only route that matters in the end? Their 100mb test file seems to be downloading pretty fast from Romania (up to 1.8MB/s), how about other countries? Honestly I don’t expect much from a $2 offer, but a ~1MB/s would be really appreciated.

    P.S. I hope the resources are more than sufficient to run a LAMP stack with ftp, e-mail, etc. to host some wordpresses and highly-optimized php sites.

    Of all the east coast VPS providers I’ve speed tested they appear to have some of the best speeds to EU for me. I got 8-10MB/s to Sweden in two different tests. Hostigation is the only other I’ve found with fast speeds to EU (NC location).

        I had varied speeds this time around so time of day probably plays a big role. I guess we need others to post their speed tests to other countries in EU to get a better idea? It did perform ok to Sweden again but this time 3-5MB/s. .DE tests below

        Germany tests:
        RHS: 3.07MB/s, 1.47MB/s
        Hostigation: 5.17MB/s, 5.52MB/s

        It resolved within 30 minutes. I will definitely make a ticket next time. The portal to login to the VPS for making tickets a bit laggy at the time but then lag improved so I didn’t bother, then got laggy again but improved after some minutes. I think it was most likely packet loss since that happens on my other LEBs from time to time.

Station of parabens same. So the only thing I think is missing and a form of payment, better than PayPal As in Brazil paypal charges carissimo transactions, so would gladly have google checkout or credit card (Visa and Mastercard).

My friend(owner if the VPS) has been off for a while and i really have no idea how to fix this. 80% of the people i give my website to cannot open it(i’m assuming it’s a dns problem) and the support won’t help with the issue unless the ticket is opened from the owner’s account, but that’s not an excuse to avoid fixing the problem :(

    • As we told you in the email, the IP you listed in the support ticket you opened with us is not for our VPS offerings. It is assigned to a customer of ours who has a dedicated server. We recommended you contact the person directly that you bought the VPS from.

      TL;DR: You don’t have a VPS with us… You bought from a customer of ours that is using one of our dedicated servers and selling VPS services.
