    • Not hardly. The servers are actually rented from CloudShards in LA and NY. Dallas is Corexchange.

  2. The LAWS for LEB offers: http://wiki.lowendbox.com/doku.php?id=listing-criteria

    Bulletpoint #4 –> “Providers under 12 months old need to display valid public WHOIS information on their domain.”

    The WHOIS info is masked/not public/not valid.

    Whois virtuavps.com?

    What else? This domain was "just" registered.

    Creation Date: 01-feb-2014 so it is well within that 12 month window.

    Now Cody sent the offer in, isn’t he some *other* provider? He said this is his “brothers” company. Yet the domain info shows COREY MANSHACK registered it…. Not CODY MANSHACK.

    Oh there is more….

  3. My WHOIS information is public, and has been since I started the company in February. My brother did register the domain for me as a “Welcome Home” present when I moved back to East Texas. The registrant name was then changed to mine immediately after purchase. For some reason GoDaddy decided to switch names on it over and over. I have changed it under my account multiple times but it always ends up changing back. I have called them with this issue and hopefully it will be resolved. The only thing anywhere intentionally private on my WHOIS is my Nameserver for DOS protection.

    Yes I am a separate provider. The only thing my brother has done is taught me a few things along the way. This business is entirely separate from Corey’s.

    • “My WHOIS information is public, and has been since I started the company in February.”

      It’s odd that LowEndBox admins would care about public WHOIS info at all since ColoCrossing uses private WHOIS on its properties HudsonValleyHost.com, LowEndBox.com, and LowEndTalk.com . Other providers in the regular rotation on LowEndTalk like ChicagoVPS hide their ownership info through private WHOIS.

      It’s also strange that LowEndBox admins would question the accuracy of your WHOIS when they regularly feature 123systems whose BBB report includes a warning by the BBB advising people to contact IC3.gov because the address the BBB has on file for them is fake (see the warning in the additional info section of their report here http://www.bbb.org/north-east-florida/business-reviews/internet-web-hosting/123systems-solutions-in-douglas-ga-235960749/ )

  4. Come on Corey.

    The domain has your information.

    You don’t post your Dallas IPs probably because they are SWIP’d to you.

    The website is hosted on your network.

    The plans are exactly same as yours.

    Using the same provider in same locations.

    Your “brother” doesn’t even come here and comment and you do all the commenting.

    We are not complete idiots, you know.

    • Patrick:

      Indeed seems odd considering Corey was on IRC talking about his CoreXchange colo and it’s the same here. The domain info was previously registered to you as well.

      I’m wondering how offers are being posted without meeting criteria’s or some really basic checks such as whois not being done.

        Yes … The owner of BitAccel? This is a joke. One person maintain 2 brands? Is it because BitAccel has very bad reviews?

  5. Steven:

    Honestly speaking Cody, why do you need to setup VirtuaVPS where it actually BitAccel? The VPS control panel still brand as BitAccel.

    I believe BitAccel is still in operating, so why you need to create another brand? BitAccel has very bad reputation if I searched on internet. You are one man show and you decide to manage 2 brands?

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.
