URPad have been featured on here many times before. They were last featured here in February with three very different offers. Feedback on that thread was a mix of positive and negative feedback. URPad is owned and operated by the FTNHosting parent company, which has been in business for over 5 years. Chris says “that to better accommodate our diverse client base we are offering these locations to better serve our friends in the USA East Coast and South America with our new Florida location.” Interestingly, URPad has begun to offer Chinese language based support which is rare among non-chinese hosts.

URPad accepts PayPal, all major credit cards, Moneybookers and Liberty Reserve. According to their website, servers will be deployed instantly. They inform us that in the coming months some new features are going to be released. Just what these are is still a secret and will be revealed at a later date! Be sure to check out their Terms of Service before signing up.

  1. Thanks for re-posting our offer Zahra, not sure why it removed when it got posted earlier today. We look forward to answering questions anyone may have.

    As always, we’re very appreciative of being featured on LEB and providing services to our friends on LET.

    what amke diffrent promo 1,5 and 1gb ram becouse 1gb ram more expensive than 1,5GB ram

    • Because the 1.5GB requires a yearly pre-payment, it can be acquired ‘cheaper’ than the 1GB plan when you break it down on a month to month basis.

      Some folks prefer to pay for a year up front, some prefer to go month to month, so we’ve got a good deal for both but sweetened the pot for the yearly deal. =]

      • I’ll say. Monthly would usually be $5.95 (between 1 and 2gb). $5.95 x 12 = $71.40, which is over twice the $30 you’re selling the VPS for. I just got a 1gb semi-annually from BudgetVM (which I consider to have competitive prices) for $27.

    The phone number at the top of their website is never answered. Hold music, then voicemail. Don’t count on it for any kind of real-time support.

    • For tech support, it’s always a good option to submit a ticket for help and before calling. The phone system is mostly used to collect feedback and have issues heard by management who has access to the system.

    This is very tempting offer but I had enough with their services. I used to have a Urpad LA VPS before but was very disappointed. For me and in my own opinion and experience their tech support are arrogant and very not willing to help most of time.

    Newbies make sure to always consider the refund option.

    • Hey there Bruno, thanks for the feedback. What was the LA node you were located on? That’s one of our most popular locations. We’ve got many nodes in that location, in the event a client is unhappy with their service we’ve always done what we can to accommodate them, either by correcting the issue or by offering a switch to a new node. I’ll admit that some of our older LA nodes have experienced issues in the past, so I’m not saying that you’re wrong. But I’d like to know what node you were on and a ticket # so that I may look into your claim to see how your complaints were addressed and what solutions we offered.

      Apologies we were unable to accommodate you Bruno! Hope you’re being served well now.

  7. 1.5GB RAM Promo 500GB Bandwidth, a little less, Why not 1T Bandwidth?

    April 12, 2013 @ 5:34 am | Reply
    • If you need 1TB, we can accommodate that at an added cost. Just open a ticket with sales and we’ll (likely myself) will respond.

      Thanks for your interest!

          You may want to convert that to English for us non-chinese people as we cannot understand that…

          But according to Google Translate they just escalated your ticket to management or something? I believe their first line support does that often as they escalate most queries over to higher tiered support.

    Are non cpu intense gameservers allowed?

    April 12, 2013 @ 5:27 pm | Reply
    • Hi there, thanks for asking. Unfortuantely we do not allow any gameservers on our nodes. The issues with allowing them aren’t nessassarily due to resource consumption, but if we make an exception for you then we’d be flooded with requests for exceptions to the rule. Best of luck for your search for a game-server friendly host though!

    • Shouldn’t be an issue, though I am not very familiar with OwnCloud. So long as it works with OpenVZ you should be good. =]

      Good to know, it did seem a little too good to be true, at least in the UK.

    • Yeah, the competition is fierce in the UK and we speculate a threatened competitor was behind a DDoS attack that lasted several days.

      Life goes on. Anyone who requested a refund got one. Anyone who requested being moved elsehwere was moved.

      That’s going to depend on how much additional bandwidth you need and in what location. Shoot us a sales ticket and let me know what exactly you need and I’ll let you know the price.

    I have been with Urpad since July 2012 on their Iceland nodes and the servers are stable, uptime is good and speed is ok. Can only remember one DDOS making trouble, and I was very happy with them..

    But, 3 times now both my servers have been suspended for “failing to pay”.
    I don’t know if it’s just my account, but for some reason when I pay, the billing software don’t update the “next due date”,
    so after some days my servers are turned off. And it seems they can’t find the bug.. Anyone else had this happend?

    Both Dylan and Curtis on the support have been helpful earlier, but seems that support does not answer lately, ppl have been complaining on Twitter for days now! 24/7 support is just pure bulls**t!

  21. Hmm… maybe I spoke too soon… While I was install the control panel configuring the settings, my VPS got suspended for no reasons. I guess this is something that the others might be experiencing too. Not sure what is wrong with them but I think by having your VPS suspended like that is going to cause you issues along the way.
