What happened to UrgentVPS?

Does anyone know what happened to UrgentVPS? The domain name seems to be expired. No trace whatsoever when searching on Google. I haven't been able to reach my VPS in several weeks.

  • Here, have this profile from the owner in 2005. Btw UrgentVPS has been gone for many moons now.

  • Well, they seemed to go disappear about the time there OnApp Free year expired.

    Yup, dead for months now. I'm surprised they lasted this long really, their services and website used to go offline for days if not weeks without any notice but they still came back. Not this time tho.

    Well its $100/mo for the control panel (then about another $120-$170/mo for a decent server to house it).

    Then its another cost on all the hypervisors of $10 per core, plus the SAN costs also!

    So OnApp isn't cheap.

    Yes, they still do but only, if I understand from their bullshit site (got so much of these "cloud" terms that I really don't get), you can only use one hypervisor with the free license.

  • @Infinity hmm when i read their offer on WHT it was limited by total number of CPU cores, was not limited to one hypervisor.

    It may have been an offer to me, because I e-mailed them and it was a non-profit that I was doing it for, and it was possibly an offer they made, to be honest I was totally confused.

    Actually if you where on an existing contract with them like UrgentVPS they don't have free 16 core licenses, that is only for new customers. Not ones that where setup under the "cloud-in-a-box" scheme they had then.

    Plus UrgentVPS signed up well before OnApp had the free 16 core offer going.

    If your wondering how I know this I currently have an active contract with OnApp. So I know there pricing structure inside out.

    Dear *****,
    
    This is a notice that an invoice has been generated on 24/09/2012.
    
    Your payment method is: PayPal
    
    Invoice #10332
    Amount Due: €-34.40 EUR
    Due Date: 01/10/2012 
    

    It's nice to see they're not completely dead after all.

    Also, negative invoice? What happens if you pay that?

  • @vedran said: What happens if you pay that?

    Ask them to refund you, and you'll get negative account credit. Then use the negative credit on any invoice to make any item more expensive! Wow!

  • Their domain is dead, where did you get this from? Email headers!

    It may be they imported the DB elsewhere(new brand maybe) and forgot to disable emails/cron.

    where did you manage to find that?

  • @Randy http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/cf68cc54bacf399b4a712b5f969c70bf/compdetails

    WHOIS address matches this but I can only presume it's a rented business address for postal forwarding etc

  • Searching google.

  • @24khost said: http://109.230.232.7/acceptable_use_policy

    Check that out.

    I find it pretty funny how they tell you to send DMCA notifications and then provide a UK address.

    It's round the corner from my school, I'll go check it out tomorrow after-school. Last time I remember another address on Cranbrook Road I think which was a flat on top of a shop and no one answered, other than some Polish chavs standing outside.

    EDIT: I've looked on Google Maps and it's in some random place I've never seen before, it's inside the town center. Will be interesting if anyone answers the buzzer thingamajig.

    And, damn this is Friday so I can't go to school tomorrow. lol

    Polish Chavs, LoL! Really, This may sound racist but most of the Immigrants(This the right word?) after a while when they come to this country become quite arrogant, and annoying. And become chavy(I know a few lithuanians like this).

    I think what you are trying to say is, it's the modern day immigrants that come just to claim benefits and live a life without having a job or caring for the environment around them that are annoying.
