I am very happy with my VPS, it is great, The support guys are very polite
I love to stay with them . I am witha Korean provider

the only problem is that they do not allow pinging they say it is a security prevention
I love I have foud what I neede bu how can I convince them to give an exception??


  • Are all korean websites all web 1.0'yy?

    Looks like something I mashed up when I was 12. Disallowing pinging for a security prevention? That's a new one.

    Remind them that blocking all traffic is an equally effective security measure.

    No, but I will admit (that website isn't really the proper style) Korean websites have their own style for their websites.

    Mr Francis who is in charge of International clients keeps tell me that all their VPS network follows the same rule . Only dedicated servers are free to get pinged..

    Lovely company , Honest and I love the fast set up and response time but I wish it could be perfect ad I need pinging

  • How the hell can a VPS provider not allow ping? :|

    Fair enough, but when I think of Asia / Korean I think of this.

    @eastonch: Koreans use a ton of internal (within the country) servers and companies. For example, most Koreans don't really use Google. They use Naver. For news they usually use Daum but for TV Broadcasting and entertainment the biggest TV networks are MBC, KBS, etc.

    Internet Brothers website isn't the standard Korean website.

    The way they handle international customer makes more sense.
