  11. Is SSL still a selling point now that Let’s Encrypt is in public beta? I’ve started using Let’s Encrypt for a few of my sites and it’s pretty simple to configure. Let’s Encrypt doesn’t support wildcards, but you can have lots of host names in the one certificate, and creating the certs is automated through their script.

          For the first thing, some people find the simple fact that your cert will be signed by “Let’s Encrypt” kinda weird, it’s also not really good face for a company when most visitors will be aware that you’re using a free cert.

          Secondly, Let’s Encrypt does not provide Wildcard with their SSL certificates, so there’s that.

        Are there any limitation on multiple domains? I need a hosting for four domains, with mail, and SSL. I never use this virtualization software and its Control Panel. I ever use Parallels with the new called “Odin”.

            I know that 1 SSL is for 1 Domain. I have my onw SSL certificates and I looking for a VPS that I can have some domains with my own certificates. Exactly four domains at this moment. I ask you because I found VPS that only I can have 1 domain, VPS that I can’t have my SSL certificates, VPS that… sure that I don’t surprise you.
            Everybody has his own requeriments. My requeriment is easy, some domains and any domain with his own Comodo certificate (your SSL certificate offert is very good, of course) but now I have this SSL certificates working. I can use your SSL of course. But how many domains I can host on this VPS (with or without SSL). Are there any limit?

          This is a VPS, you have root. You can use virtual hosting (and for SSL, SNI) to host as many domains as you like.

        It’s not for “Bulk Mailing”. Its just that you also offer cPanel/WHM licenses, so if we buy a VPS for cPanel Hosting, what is the acceptable mail limits.

        100 emails every 5 minutes, is just an example figure,
        Would like to know figure so that we can apply a local policy for cPanel customers.

    Hi,
    I applied for one of these in NL. Delivery was smooth and indeed includes 2 IPv4’s.
    I’m having trouble getting started with the SSL part. There seems to be no info on the vmbox.co site, nor in the Client Area’s knowledge base, nor in this thread after a few days.
    I ordered the SSL ‘free product addon’ but that doesn’t seem to start any workflow. Not sure if this would yield an AlphaSSL ‘coupon’ or something? I understand (but want to learn better) that there are some (technical) choices to be made before a properly configured certificate gets active.
    When entering the Vmbox.co Client Area’s Ticketing system, there’s this message at the bottom: “Please confirm you’ve read all emails regarding services with us and located the control panel information and how to apply for SSLs correctly? If not this ticket will be chargeable at $25.”
    I find that a bit harsh for this seemingly minimally documented feature.
    Can anyone give me a push in the right direction? Thanks!
    Bart.

      I just I applied for one in NL too.
      I understand that we have a clean Centos machine so first you have two options: if you are a nice Linux user, made all from SSH; or if you don’t you must install a Web Hosting Control Panel. You have some free option like VestaCP or CentOs Web Panel. I installed VestaCP with susprise, normally installation spend 15 minutes, and it finished at only 7 minutes. Good speed, Vmbox use SSD on NL and memory and procesor seem to work fine.
      From Control Panel you can generate your cert file that you need to obtaing your SSL files. Then you must send this CRT file and your domain name, and admin answer you with SSL files.

    I applied for an NL instance and it’s been awesome tech-wise so far.
    Still support is really confusing. Ticketing system basically leaves an impression that you shouldn’t use it without a lawyer.
    I actually considered nasty hacks, like routing a support ticket through the sales department, i.e. “would you bill me for a ticket like this?”.
    Then I just didn’t contact support.

    That said, all specs match the advertisement and everything doable as root from inside an openvz instance works as expected, which is 99.5% of anything one would possibly need.

    • We have them questions in place to make sure everyone reads their emails before applying for SSL’s. It’s not relevant for normal support tickets. We’ve also never considered charging anyone that doesn’t apply correctly. It’s just to ease support ticket load.

        I’m still quite confused on how to get the SSL cert. I swear I submitted a request for a wildcard on Dec 18th, and haven’t received it. It doesn’t show up in Support Tickets. Is there anyway I can check the status.

        December 31, 2015 @ 12:11 am | Reply
        • Bart:

          For what it’s worth, it’s a multi-step approach. Here’s my learning curve:

          1) Create a CSR. I installed Debian on my new VPS, and did this:
          openssl req -new -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -out wildcard.csr -keyout wildcard.key
          Make sure you put *.yourdomaingoeshereobviously.com in the Common Name field, to support a wildcard cert.
          Don’t put too much time into the other fields, they seem ignored when VmBox requests the cert with AlphaSSL.

          2) Paste the content of the CSR file into a support ticket (you can only attach JPG’s I believe).

          3) VmBox does the request with AlphaSSL and forwards you AlphaSSL’s response, the certificate.

          4) Now comes the certificate magic, which varies depending on your webserver. I had to process an intermediate certificate as well.
          https://www.alphassl.com/support/index.html

          The end result works for me. Browsing to my subdomain.mydomain.tld was secured.

      Just bought the VPS yesterday. Offer still worked. Setup time was fast and everything is working great. Thanks for such a great offer.
      I was thinking about buying another VPS instance and I was wondering if my requirements are low, can you offer a customized plan?
      The first VPS instance I bought, I will use for hosting an Arch Linux ARM mirror, they use rsync to keep everything up to date. Is this an issue, as rsync and huge data transfer can sometime spike cpu usage?
      Can I run Open VPN? There isn’t any mention of it in your TOS, so I thought I’d better ask.

  60. I had some vps from VMBox in the past and had no problems at all. I moved from them to OVH but now I’m back again! OVH vps sucks!
    I’ve got 2 of these babes and both are working great. No downtime and no problems at all.
    The only “issue” is that you have to raise a ticket in order to get the second ip and each extra ip costs 2$.

    Thanks Steven!

    I have had a VPS at VMBox.co since the 1st of Feb. and i have since then had had my server shutdown around once every month for apprently no reason. lately it have been really bad with 1x 8 hours downtime and 1x 3 hours downtime… that apparently was because I was getting DDOSed. find that hard to believe considering they have in the past had their server getting ddos’ed and i feel like they are just blaming me, because i actually ask about it…

    and they fact that they for the 3 hours downtime could not even tell me why it was down worries me a lot! they even just closed the ticket after i directly showed them on the graph what time it was because there at that moment was no activity…

    Would not recommend…

    TLDR: strict administration + lack of service = unusable VPS
    Bottom line: Not recommended, stay away

    Long story:
    I’ve been using VMBOX.CO for more than two years. Service was somewhat OK.
    3 days ago by server was suspended without notice. I open a ticket which got reply more than 17 hours later! Asking me for my root password (???). As for now the problem is not resolved and the ticket is still open with them – more than 48 hours since I opened it!
    And no resolution nor any information what is going on from their side.
    The do not answer the phone, chat is offline, they almost do not respond to emails, and when they do – they are not helpful.
    If you wish to see the ticket content, and how NOT to provide support, see here: http://pasteboard.co/8TtLIbvYy.jpg

    I have nothing else to do but to warn others… (sorry Steven and Ben)
    VMBOX.CO NOT RECOMMENDED, STAY AWAY!

      Eventually after about three days of downtime they unsuspend my server. During that time I already restored my old backups to another server from another company.
      I wish they would have replied to tickets in a timely manner… 3 days is a very long time for service interruptions.

    I got a server and installed Ubuntu 16.04, but the kernel is 2.6.32. Running apt-get dist-upgrade does not help. Is it intentional that you keep the kernel to this particular version? Installing nginx and some other crucial packages do not work with this kernel.

    AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

    I am so glad that the kernel didn’t meet my requirements and I cancelled the service. These guys have one of the worst customer service ever!
    I created the VM, found out that the VM was not meeting my requirements and cancelled it in 2 days. Their policy says that they give you a refund if you cancel within 3 days. I didn’t receive a refund though. So, I created a ticket and asked them why I hadn’t received a refund. And here is their response:

    ———————–
    Refund has to be requested within 3 days and it was not requested.

    Best Regards,
    Ben D.

    So, cancelling the service is not enough! You have to go and ask explicitly for a refund by creating a ticket! That’s absurd!
