Vazapi – $15/Year 256MB OpenVZ VPS in San Jose and Chicago

Tags: , , , Date/Time: April 20, 2011 @ 2:21 pm, by LowEndAdmin

Update December 2011 — Vazapi has been sold to Netrouting and its domain is now on AdSense for Domain.

Vazapi Dominic from Vazapi emailed me a LowEndBox special. Looks like I am going to break my rules again by posting a yearly offer on a pretty new domain — although Vazapi is owned by Graxis/ServerMinds that has been around for a while. The price is at the very-low-end spot — $15/year. And here is the spec of their special “uVZ-0” package:

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Ordering link here. Servers are in either San Jose CA (test IP: 199.48.146.2) or Chicago (test IP: 64.79.100.38). IPv6 is available on request. Do note the extra terms for this plan — no email marketing and associated services, and no bittorrent. See previous posts on this provider, and Dominic’s explanation on previous projects.

188 Comments

  1. As always, hhanks for posting our special however the Acceptable Use Policy update is applicable to all our services.
    So the no email marketing and associated services and bittorent “rule” applies to all new services.

    So is IPv6 in both locations? and is IRC allowed in both? I don’t see anything in the AUP against IRC.

      Can someone elaborate on IPv6 support:
      – how many addresses do you get?
      – does it actually work fine?
      – …especially in the SoftLayer DC?
      – is rDNS settable?

        Hello,

        – You will receive a /64 which are 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 addresses
        – That depends on the configuration off your VPS
        – We are not located within a Softlayer DC
        – Our Support Department can change RDNS on request

      Most of them have various problems, just check threads on NordicVPS, AvailableVPS or HostRail.
      So far only BuyVM succeeded at this price point.
      I wonder if this one is going to be okay.

    “no less than four (4) days prior written notice”

    What does written notice mean? Snail mail? Cancellation via clientarea? You should make this clear in the TOS before I can order. Answering here alone is not binding.

          @cd – of course he would! He would seize every server and burn to the ground every DC which offer 15$/year VPSes. The worst punishment would get those 15$/year VPS hosts without their own IP space!

          @Aldryic – you’re wrong! Sometimes I wish that lowendbox “find” option would actually work properly to find you more proofs regarding this matter.

    1. You said allow TUN/TAP on all VPS, but you have not mentioned PPTP, do you support PPTP on this $15/y vps plan then?

    2. Does the cpu allowance of this $15/y is also equal share? or have some limit to the counts of cpu core or/and frequency?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Just got 1.
    Very fast provisioning, I received the “VPS ready” before the Paypal one :)

    Seems good, a few short lags as of now but no big problem.
    I did the same tests than SwordfishBE, it is lower for bandwidth, better for IO, I have a 199.x IP so I may be in San Jose.

      Network configuration is incomplete. If someone is in the sjc 01 node, and your VPS is working, can you share your /etc/network/interfaces (without ip of course if you care) or give me your default gateway? :P

      You can request this by opening a ticket after the VPS has been provisioned.
      For some reason the SolusVM module doesn’t take the location into account when provisioning.

        Buzz became Zabogo and it all merged in to SharedLayer to keep it as one ‘hub’ and there were some domain ‘thieves’ creating an issue with a site relaunch.

        • I don’t really need to store any data. It’s an App for Sina Weibo (a Twitter copycat in China). So all I do is to verify the user via OAuth, get the data from Weibo API server do some analysis, generate result and erase all the data. If I really have to sync the data.

            you can try “Sersync project” .which use inotify+rsync.

        • If your App is large enough, you should consider get your own server and do a distributed construction. Otherwise, you may consider Amazon EC2, they will do the load balancing for you. What you need to do is too launch a larger instance.

    Hello,

    Just to confirm a few things told here, I asked them as a support ticket, here is the result :
    – Chicago : You can ask them to move to Chicago instead of San Jose, they do it and, of course, the IP is changed.
    – rDNS : SolusVM says to open a ticket, I did it and my rDNS is OK
    – 10G instead of 15G : Opened a ticket, not answered yet
    – Swap : No swap since order, however I dont stress it
    Average ticket answer for my tickets : 15 minutes (7 hours ago)

    I did the bandwidth & IO test again :
    1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 83.8999 s, 12.8 MB/s
    2011-04-21 16:08:21 (17.3 MB/s) – `100mb.test’ saved [104857600/104857600]

    It is gone worse but still usable, I will check back in a few hours.

    Have a nice day,

      Hello,

      Just to help if someone has the same problem than me.
      On Debian 6.0 32bits (maybe 64bits too), if you (apt-get) install system tools, you will get a “loop error” between vzquota & bootlogd, it is very annoying.

      Here is the solution, add the following lines between “#!/bin/sh” and “start () {” in the file /etc/init.d/vzquota :
      ### BEGIN INIT INFO
      # Provides: vzquota
      # Required-Start:
      # Required-Stop:
      # Should-Start: $local_fs $syslog
      # Should-Stop: $local_fs $syslog
      # Default-Start: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6
      # Default-Stop:
      # Short-Description: Fixed(?) vzquota init script
      ### END INIT INFO

      And then run “apt-get install -f”, it will be solved.
      Keep the vzquota file because it is rewritten at reboot, a ticket has been open.

      Have a nice day,

      Mykeul

      • Keith:

        You can create a file /etc/insserv/overrides/vzquota with the same lines.
        This will also stop the errors, it shouldn’t be overwritten when you reboot.

        April 22, 2011 @ 9:43 pm | Reply
        • WOW! I must try that solution! Seems more elegant than copying the file every reboot n_n

        Hello,

        Thanks for your answer, my tickets are mainly solved.
        I was not complaining at all, my tickets were processed rapidly, the VPS is fine for the moment, I take attention to the fact it is the starting of the offer so tuning must be your main job currently.
        Really, if you maintain this level of service, it is fine for me.

        Your escalation robot (for support) is a good idea, and I was not counting the “Low” priority tickets because they are not urgent at all.

        I am quite not sure because I posted this one a week ago and the comment has been under a confirmation(?) from admin cause it was the first time i post sth on LEB.
        As a customer, I was wondering why there wasn’t any biennially and triennially option for uVZ-0 while others such as uVZ-1,2,3 etc have them.
        And then I went on the live chat. I was my fault that I haven’t recorded the log for it.
        I guess Tom? Thomas? or sth T was in the staff’s name.
        I was “David” on the live chat on April 21, so if there’s a chat log for every customer, please check it and let me know.
        And I am very sad I didn’t take this promo cause of the person that gave me the info. :(

          The issue is with our new allocation which is not working properly.

          All pending issues in our San Jose location are going to be fixed today, Chicago will get its maintenance window later this week.

  57. n/a:

    Ok, so a quick review of Vazapi / ServerMinds, about 40 days after purchasing one of these VPSes. ipv6 support was – along with price and location of their network – main motivation.

    – VPS was delivered OK, and functioned. No complaints, no ipv6.
    – Requested IPv6, reverse DNS, and reverse DNS for ipv6 (for after it was activated) the same day.
    – Reverse DNS was fixed the same day. Delay for v6 was announced.
    – Vazapi started closing my tickets due to inactivity, but did not assign IP(s). I proceed to reopen.
    – Almost 3 weeks later, Vazapi finally tells me IPv6 has been assigned. I get a single IP, no other information. IP does not work. I request more technical info. Giving me this takes 3 days.
    – I configure the IP according to information received. This does not work again. I assume this is due to some container error or OS issue, so reinstall the VPS. This does not work; VPS is now down and won’t come up.
    – I mail support again. They do not respond. I ask my money back. Multiple times.
    – After almost 2 weeks, I get a response that v6 is working and configured, ‘in the event I want to try again’.
    – I repeatedly request my money back, but Vazapi stops responding.

    In short, Vazapi support has been horrible. They do not respond, seem overloaded, answer only part of the ticket when they do respond, and every cycle back and forth (answer/response) takes multiple days. If they queue up their own tickets for too long, they auto-close (after 72 hours). You do always get an instant message mentioning they’re busy though. Dealing with disgruntled customers is something they avoid altogether.

    After about 5 days (since the last message, telling me v6 works), I still have no response. I’m fine with ‘you get what you paid for’. In Vazapi/ServerMind’s case, you don’t; but you do get the extra of no support, and your money gone if you complain. I would strongly advise anyone considering one of their services to avoid them, and to go somewhere else. In my case, I did; unfortunately I did lose me a year’s subscription fee. I hope this review does the same for Vazapi, as this is probably a more effective way of reaching them.

      IT seems uVZ-0 clients received the e-mail they shouldn’t have, the uVZ-0 clients will remain with ServerMinds for now.

      Kind regards,

      Dominic Hakke

    • So, you got your “new VPS details”? I’m still waiting some news, because if tomorrow I don’t get anything, I guess I will need to backup.

      And anyway, is their responsability to clone our containers to the new nodes ¬_¬

    Just to clarify things, at this time only clients that do not have a uVZ-0 package are transfered to Netrouting.
    Clients with a uVZ-0 package remain on the San Jose nodes under the control of Vazapi as we have entered into a commitment with those clients for 12 months and they where not part of the VPS Hosting services take over by Netrouting.

    I would like to stress that Lowendbox or any other forum media or the like is not a support medium for Vazapi and if you have questions or concerns you would have to open a ticket with our staff!

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.
