      • Can you explain what this SSD-Cached Diskspace means? I can’t find very detailed information in china.

        Do not say that’s too complicated. Thank you.O(∩_∩)O~

        • SSD caching means, the node uses HDD drives, with one/two(usually) SSD drives for important files availability.

    Looks like Test IP is incorrect for Chicago and LA. Can you confirm?

    August 16, 2013 @ 3:33 pm | Reply
    • Confirmed LA looks like a CHI IP. and CHI IP looks like an LA probably just got them wrong way round in the offer.

    Technical knowledge of their support stuff should be improved, along with their automated system (as it suspended my VPS without any reason a few days ago)

    Just an FYI for anyone else, Hulu won’t allow the Buffalo DC to stream. Not worried about it for $9/yr, but good to know.

    CBS.com works fine, so should the other major network websites. Most sites do correctly geolocate it to Buffalo so I don’t know why Hulu doesn’t work.

  6. Isn’t this the same company as Aim2Game, ServerMania and VPNCast?

    Some screenshots for your viewing pleasure: http://imgur.com/a/wx2CG

    Definitely a connection, and all the other companies have been featured on here a lot too. Smells fishy.

        Nothing wrong with that, of course some may consider that having 12, maybe 13 ads on here in less than 5 months to be a bit like preferential treatment given others are lucky to even get their ad posted.

        • Not to mention they break these rules:

          -We will only list one offer per provider per 30 days.
          -Providers under 12 months old need to display valid public WHOIS information on their domain.

          Well, I guess technically the rules ‘were not’ broken, because they’re different providers just owned by the same dude. The WhoIS is questionable as some of them are using the address of the datacenters whereas others are using likely fake names. Can’t find any business registration info on any of them either.

          Meh.

          TL;DR: Buyer beware.

  7. When I saw the VPS allows Legal adult content, this is great, because it is too rare.

    ordered a server, no email notification recieved.
    after going through my logs i found the following:

    NOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from main.vpsace.com[198.211.108.90]: 504 5.5.2 : Sender address rejected: need fully-qualified address;

    So this company is offering vps but isn’t able to correctly configure their mail server? (according to 20+ year old standards)
