    Some time ago I was looking to get a box at this location because it has average pings to all the US locations, but then Just295 isn’t working anymore u_u
    The weird thing with the offer, is that you get less disk space and more network speed for more price than their normal plan (4.49USD) o_O

      Compare it to their Gbit VPS plans, not their standard ones. Their standard ones seem to have 10mbit pipes.

        I know.
        But still, less disk space :S

  2. Ok… 3GHz CPU guaranteed for $4.95/mo?

    So assuming one node (as is implied by the text “Node were the VPS will be setup on”), that would mean a possible configuration would be a quad-core CPU, 1GB of RAM, 20GB (plus a bit) disk space, for <$20/mo on a 1gbit port. Seems unlikely.

    Somehow I smell quite some overselling here, but please do correct me if I'm wrong.

    3 GHz CPU Guaranteed – this is most likely mistake.
    I am wondering why re-branding from RubyRingTech.com which was already established brand without negative publicity.

      Their website says it, so if someone made the mistake, it was them.

      Seems like bad wording though. Perhaps they guarantee that you have access to a CPU of at least 3ghz, rather than being guaranteed the ability to max out one dedicated 3ghz core. Even if they cheat and count HT as a core, there’s no way they could be profitable otherwise.

  5. Evening,

    Sorry for the broken link, the correct link is http://www.silverknighttech.com/specials/vps-specials/
    @ tinyray as far as custom plans, we sure do offer them, just open up a ticket to Sales and someone will help you out.
    @Spirit, no the 3GHz isn’t a typo, no honestly if everybody maxes out the CPU 24/7 things will turn to crap, but this is a one off box, hence currently only 16 spots left on the box. As far as the rebrand, long and short, some internal owners being release forced us to change names. Trust me it sucks to loose a 5 year old company/domain with no negitive publicity.
    @Gary, as far as profitable, this is a special offer, once this box is full odds are we are not going to reoffer. However trust me when I say we are here for the long haul, and will honor these prices as long as one stays a customer.

      Why say 3ghz guaranteed, then admit that if everyone uses it at the same time things will grind to a halt? That’s the definition of overselling, and while that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it’s not 3ghz guaranteed.

      • Yomero:

        Well, I don’t get it too.
        So, if I have 3Ghz, and I assume that I am limited to that (maybe is one core at 3ghz or something capped to that speed) I guess I can use all the CPU that I want o_O Folding, mining or something…

    Please also note you must provide a real host name. klasdi is not a hostname, tacobell.com is a hostname but odds are you really don’t own it.
    Please provide real and correct information or we will make your account as fraud and not honor it. *****

    • Daniel @ LowEndTalk:

      Isn’t your hostname ment to be a FQDN? Tacobell.com isn’t a FQDN.

    @ab, yes seriously, don’t like our rules don’t order our services.

    • It seems a silly rule doesnt it? what difference does it make to you about the hostname. or perhaps you should provide hostnames?

      June 5, 2012 @ 6:46 pm | Reply
      • Honestly why is it silly? What is one doing that they don’t have a real host name? How would you tell someone to go to your site, your proxy, your nameserver, your gameserver, your anything? Yes and IP does work, but really??

        • Spirit:

          Why would anyone need domain to order vps at all? Of course it is silly.

          Please also note you must provide a real host name. klasdi is not a hostname, tacobell.com is a hostname but odds are you really don’t own it.

          Beside that you’re clueless. As Daniel above said Tacobell.com isn’t FQDN and “klasdi” from example above IS hostname. (ie. hostname.domain.com).

        • Ever considered that some people may not have the domain for their project yet? Or that someone may just want to run for example a radio relay that doesn’t need its own hostname? Or any other of a myriad of reasons.

          > Yes and IP does work, but really??
          So basically you prohibit people from ordering a server without providing a hostname, EVEN if they have perfectly legitimate intentions, simply because you personally do not consider that an optimal way to run something? Really?

      • If we all want to get technical as Spirit pointed to hostname.domain.com is correct. klasdi is not the hostname, nor is tacobell.com. klasdi.tacobell.com would be correct, or http://www.tacobell.com

        Either way @joepie91, if our conditions are so hard to follow don’t order from us. No one is hold a gun to your head making you order from us. There are many vps providers out on the net that have no problems taking orders where someone enters laksdj on the order form. We don’t.

        Please also note that “personally” yes I can, I am the majority owner of the company.

        Also due to our 1000Mbps network ports and instant activation, we have found many people will sign up an account using these false names at 2am and then launch a ddos attack against people. If you support such activities or feel we are wring, then why don’t you open up your own company and get your own servers, then you can choose who gets services and who doesn’t.

        Sorry my friend, but “just because” or “others do it” is not how we run our company.


        Thank you,

          I am afraid that you don’t understand your own billing system which require from client to put in only HOSTNAME (one word!) and not domain name. “klasdi” in this case is hostname.

          This is first step in your order process:

          And next step is “checkout”
          So can you tell me where in order process is required to put in own domain name?

          side note. hostname.domain.com or klasdi.tacobell.com is not hostname. It’s FQDN (fully qualified domain name). Hostname is on only “klasdi”. What’s so hard to understand here?

        • vedran:

          And putting in something that looks like a domain for hostname will prevent that activity how?

          Also, your order form is asking for a hostname (klasdi), not a domain name (tacobell.com) of FQDN (klasdi.tacobell.com)! Without reading the note on “VPS Specials” page, I would use klasdi there (as that’s what I’m supposed to use). It’s not even written in in your TOS/AUP, are you really going to reject the customers just because they haven’t read on a random page they are not really supposed to fill in what the form tells them to?

          There is no need to accuse people here of supporting DDoS just because because they are trying to point you to the right direction.

          I’ll chime in (kinda rare), but, many of us here have special or “spread out” projects we run over multiple VPSs. One project of mine alone takes 10-12 at any given time. I’ve used well over 30 companies in the last, oh, 4-5 years (without looking things up). I keep 5-10 separate companies at any given time = “heavy user”.
          Especially here at LEB, I scout for offers, find some that meet a criteria, then a little research before giving it a go for a particular offer. This process is usually quick, and I normally do NOT have a FQDN, nor do I want to take the time to put one in when quickly ordering to secure a spot on what may be a hot-selling offer. I normally have a host name used only by me internally, and I have yet to EVER order one where I could not just pump in my host-name-only (no FQDN). And, when I order and find a good service, I do normally order multiples.
          Many of my nodes are back end haproxy web serving nodes, so, I don’t need or usually want a host name, rather than for my own internal documentation and use. If I do, I set this up after the fact with the hosting company, as well as rDNS. I also do stand-by server for failover, customers individual off-site file backup, etc…many of theses things it’s actually safer to NOT point a domain/FQDN to.
          Personally, I think many that have chimed in are right, there are very legitimate uses where we don’t want a FQDN pointed, or have it ready by knowing what we will use the VPS for exactly, and you are really cutting yourself out of being “tried out” by some of us heavy users (paying customers w/ multiple services).
