Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

VirtuallyDedicated – $6.79 1GB OpenVZ VPS in South Bend

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 21, 2011 @ 1:15 am, by LowEndAdmin

Virtually Dedicated Via this offer on WHT, which Mark from Virtually Dedicated has also sent to me. They are celebrating both their 4 1/2 year anniversary & Easter — they are part of the “RockMyWeb” brands that have been around for more than 5 years. VirtuallyDedicated recently refreshed their plans, and with promo code 15LIFE you can also get a 15% off lifetime discount on the plan for any billing cycle. Their “Private Cloud” offer is thus $6.79/month when you pay monthly. Here are the spec:

  • 1024MB memory
  • 40GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/VPSGrid

Servers are hosted in Chicago South Bend with ColoStore. There has been quite a few good reviews on WHT and LowEndBox (when you look at their previous offers). 1GB VPS at under $7 seems to get more common, where you can run a full LAMP stack and memory would be least likely the lacking resource.

    Anyone knows what CPU they have?

    I saw some reviews on WHT which shows they disappeared for a while and moved datacenters.

    The stuff at rockmyweb has also been “sold out” for several months.

      Hmm just read the previous comments. Apparently this company was on sale and may have been sold since then.

      • No. What Mark said was that there are multiple brands under RockMyWeb, and one of them was on-sale. I have no idea which one he sold — but it’s not VirtuallyDedicated.

      • Hello,

        The reason why this speed test and your network speed were having issues is because of the NIC issue on the node. The same reason why we were having packet loss issues yesterday. We are migrating all clients off this node and replacing the network card today. I suggest you retry this download test in an hour or so.

        Thanks!

      My VPS and the control panel just went offline.

      I got this email:

      The main server had to be rebooted unexpectedly, it is coming back up as we speak. Downtime should only be a couple minutes.

      I wonder what happened to the failover. http://www.virtuallydedicated.com/cloud.php

      April 26, 2011 @ 10:24 pm | Reply
      • The reboot affected our failover service too. As we said, we’ll have everything back online ASAP. It only affected about 8 virtual servers as it was our main control panel node. We will have to fix the backup failover so it keeps servers online that are on the main control panel node. We will have this fixed ASAP after this incident. I’m sorry your server was affected but after 2 minutes of downtime, you run to a public forum and post seems pretty unfair.

        Thank you.

          My monitoring system detected at least 15 minutes of downtime. It was definitely longer than 2 minutes.

          About being unfair, I think its fair that people know that it does go down despite being advertised as cloud, and its a bit of a coincidence that it happens to go down a couple of days after I sign up.

          Maybe it is a freak accident and maybe it isn’t, but nothing I said is untrue. I will be more than happy to come back and post a good review after several months if the uptime is good.

        • We will be glad to credit you for the downtime. It occured from 6:20pm to 6:29pm EST according to our systems. Your uptime monitor did not correctly monitor it. It was due to a network card glitch that was fixed in 9 minutes.

          I’m saying running to a public forum to post after you obtained only 2 minutes of downtime and we responded to your ticket in <1 minute seems a little unjust as you are only paying $6.79 per month. Problems can occur, we are not a rackspace type host who charges $500 per month, we charge $7 per month. While we will have much better uptime than the standard VPS host, mistakes can occur. We will always do our best to minimize them and as I said if this hadn't happened on the failover controlling node (control panel node) it wouldn't have had any downtime, however the problem will be addressed for next time with our backup failover controller.

          I can understand you running to these forums after an hour of downtime but I have seen three things posted about our services by you so far, one before you had even ordered, and we don't always appreciate it as we work very hard. Sorry if I seem frustrated.

          Mark I am just posting my experience as a reviewer. I have tried over 20 vps here and currently have 8. Please don’t feel obligated to give me downtime credit, I am not angry.

          I know the whole argument about paying a relatively small sum for the hosting. But the fact is that it would not be much different from most of the offers here except that it is supposedly on a cloud. The bandwidth and cpu speed is practically 2x slower on Virtuallydedicated than my ChicagoVPS, but I decided to try you out because it was advertised as a cloud.

          This is not meant to trash your business. A comment about a 10-15 minute downtime will not make you go bankrupt.

  3. VirtuallyDedicated has gone through a lot of behind the scene changes but new management is not one. We have been working on switching to a new datacenter and setting up our new cloud services though and we are happy to introduce ourselves as one of the most affordable true cloud VPS providers.

    Thank you for posting our special!

    Note to anyone who orders tonight, we are having a few delays in order provisioning. We will have all servers active by morning.

    • I can attest to the fact that VirtuallyDedicated is under the same management. I’ve had a VPS through them for a while now (1.5+ years), and even through the datacenter transition they have been great, with prompt support and notification of any changes to the server config.

      Mine is not a top-end VPS, but then again, what are you doing here if you want that. I have, however, been very satisfied with what I’ve got.

  4. The “CREDITS” coupon refers to our upgrade credits. When using this special and you purchase the server for $7.99 you will receive 400 or $4.00 worth of credits in our control panel in which you can use to upgrade resources like RAM and hard drive space.

    Our credit system allows you to instantly upgrade your server and only be billed hourly for how long you use the upgrades.

      It is really close to Chicago, only 5ms difference. I wonder if I should try it though I’m hesitating because of the CPU and I’ve already bought 4 new VPS this month.

          You should probably be slightly more patient. I would imagine there is some time with their billing processing and order processing. How long are we talking here? 10-15 minutes since you placed your order or maybe less?

  11. Hello,

    To address some of the concerns.

    New Orders: For all those that ordered. We are manually processing new servers until we can get our instant setup plugin working properly with our new cloud. We expect it to be fixed later today but as of now there will be a delay of a few hours for new orders.

    Location: We always say it is outside Chicago because in fact South Bend is basically a part of the Chicago metro area, it is only about an hour drive from Chicago. All of our bandwidth is pulled from Chicago through dark fiber and there is only about a 1ms difference in latency.

    SWAP: Yes, OpenVZ does not allow people to configure separate swap space and swap is very slow. Our servers themselves rarely swap and if they do they will be sorted out by our load balancer, but any virtual memory along with random access memory will be accounted in the maximum memory of your server.

    IP: You can ping our web site, it is hosted on our cloud.

    Thank you.

    • Website hosted alongside your client boxes? That’s not good. If your boxes go down, how will clients contact you? I hope your support is hosted offsite.

      • Well, we do have a phone. If clients need to contact us and can’t get through to us they can always call but e-mail is hosted off site.

        • As I said, e-mail is still hosted off-site. So if they cannot call they can contact our support email. We rarely have unscheduled downtime. Not to pry but when we do, our highest concern is getting servers back online when downtime occurs, not answering support tickets. I think most people would be happier to know we are working on restoring their servers rather than spending time telling people we are restoring their servers.

      • Jonathan:

        They probably have a setup similar to EC2, not necessarily in that they use Xen, but in the “cloud compute” sense.. this means they probably have a cloud “compute” and/or cloud “storage” infrastructure, which allows the on-demand scaling. So if any “compute” node, or “storage” node goes down, it is likely that clients that were using those resources may just get shifted over to another resource node. If this is how VPSGrid works (granted this is just a bit of conjecture on my part on how their infrastructure might be setup), then having their website on this “cloud” would not be any issue at all.

        April 22, 2011 @ 1:44 pm | Reply
        • Yes, our setup is a bit different than Amazon, but it works in a fairly similar way. Thus if any one server goes down, no virtual servers will be affected. The only issue I could see is if the network had a failure however we do have off-site email hosting and a phone number for clients to call.

    April 21, 2011 @ 7:35 pm | Reply
  17. @Bob: Sorry for any inconvenience, we have to verify some accounts due to the nature of doing business online. IPs in the US are not always a fool proof solution as we have had many chargebacks from U.S. IP addresses over the years.

    @Innya: Colostore has two data centers. One of which they are in the process of closing down and one they are building up. I’m assuming you are talking about the one they are moving from.

    If you saw the webhostingtalk thread about our downtime a few months back it was because we were in the process of moving our servers to the new data center. Their new facility is a lot bigger and a lot nicer than the old one.

      • Our concern isn’t chargebacks but fraudulent users. There are chargebacks but for the specific reason of unauthorized purchases due to stolen credit cards which is common in the online business.

        By contacting our customers, when their identity hasn’t been verified, we can protect both us from damaging acts (fraud users usually send out SPAM or cause network attacks), a chargeback fee, and the credit card holder from unauthorized charges.

        Verified PayPal accounts require a bank account and a credit card to be linked. This makes it so someone who only has the credit card would be unable to use the account.

    • Just adding my input here but you do know that the dd test that people are posting all over WHT doesn’t test disk i/o. It only tests sustained writes which are the least used part of the disk speed in a common web hosting environment. Random reads are the most common.

      However, you can find a test in our latest review: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1028895&highlight=rockmyweb

      Disk speeds should be relatively similar as both are on the same cloud.

      • Just to discuss some of his concerns though, it isn’t 700mhz allocated, it was 700mhz guaranteed on 2 CPUs, meaning he could burst to the full amount. This customer had an isolated issue with invoicing which we fixed after his second month. You can make your own decision about our VPS panel, and our support ticket system is enabled on it now. OS templates can be loaded on request, we have all the standard available. :)

  25. I used their service from Feb 2010 to Feb 2011 (VPS ID: 21367). Their server is stable and uptime is good. The only downtime I had was when they moved to a new data center back in September 2010.

    I like them a lot, especially when they answered my question honestly about how many support staff they have during the migration to their new data center:
    “We are a very small business compared to many of the big boys out there. We usually only have one or two personnel working at a specific time of day.”

    (No offense to other provider here who announced that they have a total of 28 support staff, but experiencing at least a downtime every 2 days)

    The only reason to stop their service is I am moving most of my sites to a dedicated server.

    So to sum it up, I am satisfied with the service they had provided me with.

    “Your order was rejected for the following reason(s):

    Your overall risk is too high, please contact our sales office for more information”

    Could you help me, please. I want to try a quarter package.

  28. Wow sorry about that, I’ll be getting back to you shortly. Apparently our spam filter has been blocking quite a few requests from our contact form.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    Any chance of making this VPS run Ubuntu Desktop?

    • If you’ve gotten to run on other virtual private servers I don’t see why not. We don’t have an OS template setup for it, but if your good with linux you should be able to get it working.

  31. Hello Yang,

    You can test our web site for ping times. We don’t have a public speed test file but here is a result from one of our servers on the Cachefly speed test:

    That is over 400mbps!

    Probably about 20% of our servers haven’t been updated to gigabit network cards yet (referring to result by Sao above). However, 100mbps is still very fast and if you happen to need more than 100mbps for any reason you can always request to be moved to a different node. Note that if you were to transfer 100mbps for one month you would use 33,000GB.

  37. Yes, They are good at this price.

    I’m happy with the way they support me.

    @Mark, the server, which I’m on, will soon be upgraded to Gigabit?
    thank you!

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.
