    Since my way of defining words is really trashy, I'll use Google's..

    Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed.

    Basically trying to be something that you're not, trying to act big when in reality you're not that big etc.

    They're cheap. If you have more $ maybe you should try.

    I trust Namesilo for my domains. Use DOLLARLESS for $1 discount.

    Its been up and down since I got it , IO was about 40 MB/s so he moved me to a new node which then made the vm kernel panic and he blamed me...

    However it works now after 4 days of packet loss and downtime.

  • @Jack so.... basically.... Stay away?

    I was looking at one too :P

    Catalyst Host - Pie Approved!

    Well it's okay now but I wasnt happy to start with.

    Xen or KVM? If you read LEB comments it seems most have praise for Xen and no praise for KVM

    That was posted by another host however, all of it is backed up by screenshots of Avante's posts.

    Far from they started last year but in the minecraft community.

    Most if not all the dead poolers are rented services , Avantehosting has their own AS and equipment.

    He blamed you for causing kernel panic after he migrated the VPS? O.o

    For your server I actually further looked into it by starting the VM on the old node as-well and it seemed to kernel panic too. As said to everyone we know the i/o was not great on KVM-1 so we decided to move everyone to KVM-3.

    I didn't see any packetloss and downtime however.

    avantehostinglies.com was put up by another host, as we took many sales from them. The owner of that had a Minecraft sever from us for quite a while, I asked him politely to take it down in which he did.

    Phil funny how you would post that link. As Ben/Bradley set that blog up.

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    This was about a year ago as-well, and of course I've learned a lot in a year. This was also during the dark days. We were quite small back then.

    did you move everyone on KVM-1 to -3 ? How come I'm still on Kvm-1 ?

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    We're doing a slow move, you will be moved over don't worry.

  • Umm you might want to fix your client area too Chris.

  • Been tempted to purchase from them given the fact that they are in Florida, but not to sure after some of the reviews and everything...

  • Bad reviews on MinecraftForums. Wouldn't trust them that much.

    Last week i signed up with avante hosting $6 offer.. Today morning i was really shocked to see a wordpress page in chinese when i opened my site... ssh and virtualmin were not working.. so i thought it was hacked... then i logged into the console and stopped apache.. still same.. finally i found out that it is going to another ip from the same vps.. instead of x.x.x.2 files were being served from x.x.x.3.. and no n/w connectivity from my console.. i dont know whats happening... raised a support ticket... no reply yet... anyway i moved my sites to another vps (using backup file) and changed the dns....

    Yep saw them and really turned away and made sure I locked that door/

    Zon,

    I looked into your issue and yes another VPS was indeed using your IP, how I don't know I rebooted the VPS and then your IP didn't come back. I proceeded by going into the VM, but your IP was not setup in any interface files and there was no log showing your IP had been brought up. I am truly sorry for this, and I am unsure how this happened.

    Thanks

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    @NickPerk

    We've been waiting for months for 3/6 negative reviews to be removed. The owner is MIA. If everyone posted on there would be over 5000 reviews. Most people post when they have a bad experience rather than a positive.

    I had a similar problem. 1 IP asigned to 2 VMs... I claimed it was solusVM's problem, they completly denied it.

    Yeah it is a SolusVM problem as I've had the same thing happen once before on one of my nodes I ran a while back.

    -Nick Perkins | Twitter = @nickpperk

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    Though the IP wasn't assigned to the VM in SolusVm it was assigned to Zon's. I had to get the MAC from the router arp table then find the MAC in the SolusVM DB which led me to the VM.

    Just going through all the places the only thing that really hasn't been explained is the following

    Yes that is true, our DC wont take our equipment only the FBI will. Though that wont happen since we don't allow anything illegal on our servers. I will say, we are HEAVILY against spam/warez anything illegal and that we do take abuse VERY seriously.

  • Sure they won't... But if they cut you off the network, it would pretty much be the same ;)

  • @ChrisK said: Though that wont happen since we don't allow anything illegal on our servers.

    Yet in the image you didn't state that. You basically told the client sure we will host it but if it is asked to be removed it will be removed.

    -Nick Perkins | Twitter = @nickpperk

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    Regardless. We wouldn't host something like this. This was a while ago, and we have changed a lot since then. We RARELY get abuse reports, as I said we take it very seriously. If you'd like to discuss more pop on the IRC I'm on.

  • ThorinThorin Member

    I can confirm being moved from KVM-1 to KVM-3 today without pingdom noticing any downtime. I wouldn't have even known if I didn't see this thread and check uptime. For $6, I don't really see how you can lose. It's basically a free VPS if it lasts longer than a couple months and if it doesn't, oh well, next LEB offer.

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    @Thorin We moved one by one to have the shortest possible downtime :) It will last aslong as its paid for!

  • ThorinThorin Member

    @ChrisK Haters gonna hate. Especially when you're undercutting them.

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    Exactly, when other providers start posting in your LEB post you know they're upset :)
