HostingSquad Windows 2003 Liscense Key?

HostingSquad Windows 2003 Liscense Key?

zhuanyizhuanyi Member
edited August 2012 in Providers

As I have mentioned before, I have a Windows 2003 VPS with HostingSquad and I think @Randy has worked really hard to put every piece together and get things to work.

However, out of curiosity, I found a tool online to back out the license key for the Windows that Randy has installed for me and it turned out the key has been posted on various forums before, an example is the following post:

http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/2074-Server-2003-Stan-Ent-OEM-Files-DELL?p=31073&viewfull=1#post31073

Out of respect for Randy's privacy, I won't disclose the full key in public however here is the first half of it:

DR7QV-WQDC8-G4DP9

And some Google Search results:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=DR7QV-WQDC8-G4DP9

Again, as what I have mentioned before, @Randy has been working really hard to help me, who is just another customer of his, however I wish he could respond to this thread and clear up things a little.

    Yes, a big mystery...

  • @zhuanyi said: Out of respect for Randy's privacy, I won't disclose the full key in public

    but google doesnt respect privacy, at least in this case ;)

  • What privacy do you seek in a seemingly random sequence of digits and letters? Your name, address, etc. is not exposed there.

  • @peppr said: but google doesnt respect privacy, at least in this case ;)

    That is something to be discussed between your/Randy's lawyer and those of Google's :)

    This key is not SPLA, it was given by neo, it should be legit, i have no idea why its floating on the web, but whatever it is, it will be my duty to issue a new key at least, i am currently following up with the DC with licenses for windows dc edition for what they could offer. once again if i would really use a fake key/leaked key, i would not have answered the previous threads. i would have just shut up and kept this private if i am using a illegal key?

    those keys has expired, so i doubt it will be any use.

    i am planning to get windows 2003 or 2008.

    meanwhile i have disabled ordering, untill this gets resolved.

    Thanks for starting this thread, i wanted to get this out of the way too

    i owe you an apology for this too. apologies.

    It's right for zhuanyi not to release the full key, otherwise he'll be in trouble for either (1) releasing pirated Microsoft CD keys, or (2) releasing a valid private CD-KEY from TheHostingSquad.

    Edit: Can you please get neo to respond to the accusations, since after all you're pushing 100% of the blame to him I think he should respond.

  • Who the hell is Neo? I asked yesterday as well.. Is he a member of LET?

    Also, I feel bad for you, as it looks to me that someone has just fucked you over with this keys.

    LSN provides windows 2k8 DC license for 70$, I think you use their servers

    indeed. due to LSN screwing me up (Finally the RAM is in stock), i think i could get some discounts

    That has nothing to do with him, he mostly unware of this too,, i guess

    Not really, the first days I had really bad experience with them, my chats even got escalated to one of the managers (I think it was the sales director) and all my issues were dealt by him.

    And of course you have avoided my first question

  • @Randy said: This key is not SPLA, it was given by neo, it should be legit

    Thanks for the clarification. I would appreciate @Boltersdriveer to step in and comment as well, since given another VPS provider a key with highly questionable origin is pretty much unethical at best and if LoomHosts is such a provider I'd stay away from them.

    No, sir. like i said. this has nothing to do with him, leave him alone. :) that has nothing to do with him, i am sure he is unaware of the leak, i do believe that he provides me fully legit keys. it just happens to be this one that is somehow leaked

  • Unless they are licensed SPLA providers, they can't actually provide any licenses.

    Yeah right. Let me provide screenshots myself: Deleted by request.

  • Sure, deleted them. Anyway, this doesent change the fact that they are pirated.

    Anyway, I am off this thread, just no point to argue.

    @Randy you seem to have problems comprehending the English language. "@Randy said: it was given by neo," is not "Yes" or "No".

    I want a quoteable, tesitifed statement by you weather or not you paid money for your Windows license.

    @Randy you are so dumb its UNBELIEVABLE. I have previously defended you because i thought you are a good joke and it would be funny to have you around.

    But this is it. I've asked you 3 times to answer the simple question "Did you pay money for the Windows key you are using? " with either "Yes" or "No".

    And 3 times you either completly ignored my question or quoted something else.

  • JarJar Member

    Plausible deniability? I'm not sure it's as valid of a defense as it used to be.

  • @Randy don`t forget the node need at least 2 processor and every processor need a license

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    given is the answer. its obviously a no,

    @dataeg said: don`t forget the node need at least 2 processor and every processor need a license

    no idea what you are trying to say

  • gsrdgrdghdgsrdgrdghd Member without signature

    @jarland said: Plausible deniability?

    Thats actually why i want a straight forward answer from @Randy. If he says "No i did not pay any money for my Windows license i'm going to argue that plausible deniability is not given in this case.
