      No, unfortunately, not dedis available at the moment; we had a few dedicated servers available out of our Montreal datacenter, but they’ve all been snatched up by our existing clients. Will post if any become available!

    Hey guys – Just wanted to say thanks to the overwhelming response from the LEB community to this deal. We are actually starting to run out of IPV4 addresses for our VPSes; we have ordered some more already, but once those new ones run out as well, we may have to start offering only IPV6 IPs for whoever else is interested in this deal.

    Also, just to answer some questions that our team received over Live Help and via ticket:
    Q: Can you list all the payment methods you accept?
    A: We have tried to partner with some of the bigger payment providers out there, so we can offer pretty much every method of payment under the sun :) Here’s a full list of every single payment method we offer (some are only available from certain regions): http://www.trunkspacehosting.com/billing/knowledgebase.php?action=displayarticle&id=53

    Q: Can I use the VPS to perform a DDoS attack?
    A: Shocked that this was actually a real question, but in case we need to be explicit in responding to this, no. We do not condone any illegal activity, and anyone found using the VPS to break any laws, we will terminate the service. Please refer to our ToS for more information: https://www.trunkspacehosting.com/tos.html

    Q: Is the deal ‘recurring’ or one-time only?
    A: The 20% LEB deal is a recurring offer; once you sign-up, you will have the 20% discount for the life of your VPS service.

    Q: Do you offer CPanel? Where can I access the file manager?
    A: We do not offer CPanel; you are free to install CPanel on your TSH VPS, assuming you have a CPanel license. We use SolusVM: http://solusvm.com/

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask here (I’ll try to check back in here from time-to-time), or ping us on our site via chat (or ticket, if we are unavailable through chat).

    Once again, thanks for the great response so far!

  4. IMPORTANT NEWS:

    Our current datacenter operator, GorillaServers Inc. (GSI), has received numerous abuse complaints due to mail spam coming from our users who signed up since we started our LEB promotion. Although we responded to these complaints in an extremely timely matter every single time, suspending the offending user’s service immediately, they have grown tired of the complaints and have given us 72 hours to ‘get off [their] network’. We are not at all happy with their decision but must comply immediately per their Terms of Service.

    We have therefore moved to a new datacenter operator operating out of Jacksonville, Florida. We are working tirelessly to transition our current VPS customers to the new servers, hoping to create new VPS instances for each existing client over the next 24 to 48 hours.

    The positive out of this is that our new servers will have 4 drives in a RAID10, so we will have the data redundancy that we didn’t have previously. We also have many more IPv4s at our disposal, giving us the ability to offer the server deals to new as well as existing clients who have inquired since we recently ran out of stock of IPv4 (and therefore on VPSes offered) on our GSI operated servers.

    As an existing client, once you receive your new VPS server details, if you decide that the new location doesn’t suit you, please open a Support Ticket and we will be happy to provide a full refund immediately.

    Moving forward, we will be changing our Terms of Service and blocking SMTP (outgoing mail) traffic on our VPS servers until we put proper mail filtering in place, ensuring no sign-ups occur purely for spamming purposes (as many sign-ups from LEB have seemed to be); in the meantime, should you require SMTP access, please open a support ticket requesting it and we will review each case individually.

    We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this has caused, but this was unfortunately completely out of our control.

      Our migration to our new provider is now complete!

      All emails with new VPS server details have been sent out to our existing clients. If you are a client and haven’t received an email with new server details, please contact us immediately.

      Finally, we now have some IPv4 and server resources available, so if you are interested in this deal (which runs until August 31st), please feel free to sign-up using the same links originally provided in this LEB thread.

    You know, I haven’t purchased a server off LowEndBox in a long time and I now remember why. Too many crappy hosts. Woke up today to find without notification that my server was not only offline but that it’s IP had magically changed. Whats disturbing is that the host didn’t think it was important to notify the customer of either the reboot or the changes.

    If you can’t handle the fundamentals of being a host and think it is an ‘OK’ thing to just randomly change your customers product then you should plan on going out of business now. This is a deal breaker for me and likely is for a lot of people. I know for me it will be the reason services will be canceled at the end of the month.

    If you plan to stay in business you better start learning how to take care of your customers. So far its a shit show.

    my 2 cents.

    Cheers!

      Thank you for your comment.

      An email was sent out to each of our VPS customers as soon as we were (suddenly) advised by our provider, GSI, that they were removing us from their network in 72 hours; this is not our first foray into hosting, we have been operating for over 10 years now, offering webhosting, voice servers and game servers to thousands of clients. We had also been a customer of GSI’s for over 6 months before this, and had experienced no issues whatsoever with them or their service — so that’s why we decided it was safe to offer this LEB deal, which resulted in a huge amount of new customers, but ultimately resulted in a massive amount of spam; we were comfortable knowing that some spam would be sent, and that we would handle every complaint as it came in since, before this, we have never seen or even heard of a provider force their customers off their network like GSI has done — we will take that up with them — but as I’m sure you understand, we couldn’t take our IPs with us after we were forced to move since they are owned by GSI. What we therefore did was spend countless hours and money over the past few days migrating ALL customer data from their existing VPSes, deploying those same VPSes onto our new provider’s machines, making the ‘transition’ for our customers as painless as possible; the big ‘change’ is the change of IP, which we realize will be unacceptable to some customers, and for that reason we are offering a 100% refund for those customers unhappy with the change of IP.

      Based on the above, I hope it’s clear that we’ve done everything in our power given the cards that we were dealt by what’s turning out to be a terrible dedicated server provider in GSI.

      I personally apologize for the inconveniences you’ve felt, TheLinuxBug. In your message, you said that your service will be cancelled at the end of the month due to the IP change? Feel free to submit the cancellation right now and we will refund you in full. That goes for everyone – we’re accountable for our providers, and we understand if customers are unhappy with the situation and want to move to another provider, but we hope most will feel the actions we have taken to be acceptable and stick with us!

        One final comment:

        Your original VPS server (with its original IP that was assigned) remains online at this very moment; in addition to all our efforts these past 48 hours to get all our customers’ VPS data/containers left intact and migrated to the new machines, we left the old VPS servers online on their old IPs and will do so for as long as possible (as long as we are not disconnected by GSI) — just in case there’s any ‘delta’ data that wasn’t copied over since the system snapshot was taken for the container migrations — or if client’s haven’t gotten the chance to check their email over the past 48 hours and suddenly have their old VPS no longer working. So as it stands, existing customers have both the old and new servers online until we are completely forced off GSI’s network.

  6. The page at https://www.trunkspacehosting.com/vps-hosting#tabs1-js says that the disks are in RAID10, but the page here says there’s no RAID. Which one is correct?

      They now run RAID10/RAID1 on their servers as they were kicked out of the Ogden, Utah Datacenter. They are now in Jacksonville, Florida from my understanding.

      • Correct, we run a RAID10 out of Jacksonville, Florida & a RAID1 out of our Los Angeles, California facility — thanks, IThinkUFailed

        August promo is still active until our new deals are posted on LEB :)

    Nice price, but the speeds are painfully slow! I can’t get wildfly downloaded for the past 20 minutes. The speed is around 200-250kbp/s

    I guess that for testing purposes it’s ok, but not for any production use.
