Orlando KVM/Xen

Orlando KVM/Xen

nunimnunim Member
edited July 2012 in General

I'm looking for a LEB provider out of Orlando that offers KVM (or xen, KVM prefered). I've currently got an OpenVZ box with FlipperHost and I have no complaints but I'm really looking for something KVM based. Not Avante...

I saw LoveVPS on WHT, they look okay, but I'm looking to get some options since I've discovered Miami is not worthwhile.

Looking for at least: 256MB ram 10GB hdd 200GB bw

Thanks :p

  • The only two I really know of in Florida that I have good experience with are SecureDragon (Tampa) and VPS6 (Miami).

    Just reading the last few pages of your MCF thread seems like you got a lot of good ol' happy clients with you.

    "Avante Hosting may be reliable but their support is awful. They don't explain anything to you and everything they reply with is one sentence and something you already did or told them you did. They make no sense with their support and half of the time they don't even read your support tickets. I really wish they would show that they are reliable with their support. I have recently sent it some support tickets because my server is COMPLETELY offline. It won't work/start/stop nothing. I'd recommend that you know exactly what you need to do and you know EXACTLY what you're doing or else their support won't help you at all. I have believed in Avante Hosting but I absolutely HATE having to submit support tickets."

    "Yes, they do respond fast on the sales side. The support side takes them ages till they FINALLY respond. "

    "The service quality was very bad, as I've found myself restarting the server like, I think 3 times a day after the 3rd day, with 5 times on the night before I went to look for another hosting service, and their support team was just completely useless as their advice to restart the server regularly was just completely useless, as I cannot afford to restart my server every five minutes. At that rate, people are just going to be leaving my server."

    @nickperk please don't derail this thread with irrelevant junk.

    I wish people would stop pointing me to SecureDragon... I love Joe, I have 4 VM's with him... but he is not in Orlando!

  • @nunim will do :).

    Other than SecureDragon there is really nobody. Sure you can take a risk and play your cards with Avante, but it sounds like you don't want to.

    -Nick Perkins | Twitter = @nickpperk

  • ChrisKChrisK Member

    Unfortunately, we cannot keep all clients happy. If you look at the thread, that's about what 10 reviews out of OVER 5000 Minecraft servers. That's a pretty good ratio in my opinion. There is some clients you can't make happy, we try our best!

    The top one, the person wanted hand holding. We are not the provider to hold your hand, we offer budget UNMANAGED services. If you pay for management we will gladly hold your hand installing anything, or install it for you

  • @nunim I can recommend LoveVPS they are a pretty solid company when I was with them a year ago.

    Indeed. Thank you, so back to the topic at hand...

    So, anyone else got any ideas? Can be a bit about LEB price if provider is using mostly level 3 bandwidth

    I can do an extension if needed. We can't just pack up our bags and cose down. 5, 7 days you name it. We use HD's blend which uses a lot of level 3.

    I've done some searching and LoveVPS seem to be the popular KVM choice in Orlando. Any particular reason you want to stick to that region? or would you be ok with anywhere in Florida.

    @ChrisK Your companies posts are becoming annoying.

    I'm in the South Florida Metro area and I've found Orlando to have the best connectivity, Miami would be best but it's only a ~2 ms difference. The difference from Orlando to me and secure dragon to me is 15ms. This will be used as a personal VPN amongst other things so low latency is ideal.

    @AsadHaider How so? I am simply stating the pros of going with us.

  • laaevlaaev Member

    Orlando is Hostdime, so your honestly SOL they are nothing but bad news...

    But if you are okay with a sluggish network then I suppose it doesn't matter.

  • @ChrisK OP made it clear in their last post that they don't want to go with you. You also keep double posting, use the edit link.

    Sluggish network? We can utilize our full 10G from them :)

    Lol what is all with the HostDime hate when I was with them they were solid (OFC I colo'd). Plus if you get them to price match and twist their arm you can get them down to like $80/month for 20Mbps :P

    @ChrisK said: Manny and Paul are always there when needed.

    Yep when I had a server up there they were always very helpful and made sure everything was done right.

    Original quote they gave was like $112/month. Talked them down to $100. Then kept talking about lowering and finally settled on the $80ish a month :P. Being a bit of a douche sometimes helps :P

    It was actually a client who sent that to me many months ago as he canceled with Hostdime and doesn't like there service. I had his permission to share it.

    And no Tiny at the moment? Yes! That means I can't spend any money! yay!

    We can upgrade your RAM for an additional price if need be :)

  • @GetKVM_Ash Sorry Ash, but needed 1GB for Windows 2008 for asp dev which Up2VPS do for £4.50/m. I'll be back though if I need another remote desktop machine or a kvm from a stable provider :)

    LoveVPS is the only provider I've used in HostDime and I liked it. I tried ordering another VPS a few months back but I didn't properly cancel my first VPS so I can't order another VPS. :(

    Sorry about that but its one of my pet hates. We gave you an extra month on the other one before it was suspended.

    HostDime is a good facility, and we are really happy there, they have an excellent support team, never met one un-friendly tech there yet. I know Manny is over in the UK at the moment (he was planning to be over here sometime this month).

    The only first hand experience you had was when someone "apparently" not you blocked everything with iptables.

    You can't really comment on something you haven't tried Kevin.

    After all you where considering to fighting Dennis at HostingCon, so keep your personal grievances out of this.

    That is only one of many horrible experiences we had with hostdime and that was for a brand we were in the middle of acquiring, they seem to take over 8 hours for reboots and blame it on iptables.

    We had many more servers with them back in 2010-2011 under a different brand and there network can't withstand a small ddos attack and the support (especially level 1) is horrible and slow.

    There are many outage threads on WHT which prove HostDime's bad network too.

    Also let me note most of my first hand experiences with hostdime were last year so they may have improved by now, but what I can say is i spoke to a fairly large VPS provider who currently uses hostdime and they told me they are moving out soon due with issues so that suggests they likely haven't improved, who knows.
