Got this email today. Um, my what? Never had service with them.

Hi,

This is to inform you that due to abuse/spam we will be discontinuing the free vps service on 28 September 2012. Please take backup of your data before that.

Regards,

  • LOL I just got one, haven't the foggiest either.

  • What company did it come from?

    I am no longer affiliated with IPXcore.
  • The world needs to know, and you're part of it. Pass it on to your contact list!

  • It's obvious it was a scam to get customers. It's typical to use spam as an excuse. LET has seen this many times.

  • what others really free do you know besides host1free ? I never had one with amanah, but was ready to try when i had some time. M

    Who's General Failure, and why is he reading my drive A: ?

    More recently we have FortaTrust? I think only one of the LET memebers got the free server from them.

  • It wasn't spam it was newsletters ami right?

  • Same here, I got trapped by maxmind and created a ticket which was never replied back in March and now they sent me this.

    Thanked by 1netomx

    What's the point in that?

  • I got this email too. I DID have service with them, before they decided to delete everyone's account to make them sign up again. For what reason, I don't remember.

  • Amanah is run by retards, who are clueless at best.

    And yeah, childish ploy to get clients that ended with them getting a lot of bad press at WHT, iirc.

  • Very unprofessional at best.

  • IIRC that was the company that was listed by @96mb

  • The free vps terminated looong time ago. Annoucement email are just couple months late. /sarcasm

    I trust Namesilo for my domains. Use DOLLARLESS for $1 discount.
  • I think they terminated them and restarted, now it looks like going down for good. M

    Unmetered 100TB? Isnt that... Metered 100TB? :S!

    Looks like keyword bingo trying to get 100TB.com's sales. :)

  • At least they give a notice this time around. It sucks though, because it was a decent little box.

  • The free VPS offer was an effort to support smaller users by offering a temporary promotion. However, our system won't accept free email accounts (gmail, hotmail) so some people may have been rejected by the system without every getting the service.

    From those who successfully registered, we found too many were abusing the service (spamming, hacking etc). If you received an email it's because you were registered, at some point, for our service. We wanted to give legitimate users the opportunity to backup their data before we started shutting down accounts.

    Essentially the promotion didn't workout as well as we originally hoped. We're sorry for the inconvenience.

  • @AmanahTech, alot of people are saying they never signed up with you. How is it you got there information.

  • @AmanahTech said: However, our system won't accept free email accounts (gmail, hotmail) so some people may have been rejected by the system without every getting the service.

    I use my domain, and didn't get past the maxmind check; sent a ticket and... well, you know, no response

    Referral links: DigitalOcean referral link | Free 15GB with Copy | Get 500MB free with Dropbox | PM me if you WTB domains with Google Apps
  • Never signed up. Never heard of you.

  • @AmanahTech LOL at the cancellation emails. With support tickets remaining unanswered forever and VPSes already being shutdown for no reason for months, getting a cancellation email was just plain ridiculous.

  • I got an email about my VPS was terminated for abuse, and I didn't even know that I got a VPS with them =)

  • I was marked as fraud, and never received a reply - great work, I must say. :)
