      I think about to switch from my 5$ KVM to you.
      RAM: 2TB? wtf

      I getting also 20% loss

    • @joodle, I'm getting it checked. Thanks for reporting.

      @Infinity580, yes Windows is allowed IF you have your own license.

      Probably a typo?

    • @serverian How come no gameservers? how about IRC?

    • awsonawson Member
      edited July 2013

      Are gameservers allowed if we use our own DDoS-filtered IP (assuming this is the reason they're disallowed)?

    • Packet loss issue has been resolved.

      @chauffer, Because of DDoS attacks. IRC is allowed.

      @awson, that is possible.

    • @serverian not even private gameservers?

    • @chauffer, if it's a server that is known by noone but you and your friends then it'd be fine.

      Would it be possible to bump this up to 4GB? If so, what would be the associated cost?

      Also, I know asking for 4GB is a lot, just curious if it was doable, this would be exactly what I've been looking for if so.

    • @revnja, $14 for double resources.

      Cheap VPS - VPSDime

    • revnjarevnja Member

      Does that include double HD, double IPs, etc? Either way is fine, I'm really just after the RAM bump. Could you PM me an order link for that, I'd like to give it a shot!

    • ISO installation possible?

    • @revnja, I've sent you a PM.

      @budingyun, sure it's possible.

    • anyone purchased already? how's the kvm server so far? ;)

    • revnjarevnja Member

      I just signed up about an hour ago. Holy god -- the server is FAST. The I/O is crazy impressive. I'm able to pull 500MB+/s. I installed Windows 2008 R2 in a matter of minutes.

      I think this VPS is going to work out juuuuuust fine. :) Thanks Serverian.

    • @revnja, i'm glad it works out for you!

      @ravenchad, see above :)

      Also, the network is pretty damn good as well, downloading software from one of my vendor sites and I'm pulling 20MB/sec.

      Here are some informal 'benchmarks':

      They allow you bringing your own license for Windows which is great, if you have a need for that sort of evil ;) A lot of providers don't allow this, not sure why, but I appreciate the fact that they trust me enough to handle my own licensing issues. The control panel is also not SolusVM, which after the recent exploits, is a very good thing in my eyes. They didn't half-ass the panel, either, it's built in to WHMCS and it's very slick, stable and a pleasure to work with. The panel does have a few quirks when it comes to mounting ISOS/installing/rebooting, but they are actually documented in the panel with instructions to follow in case something weird comes along, so they end up being no problem at all. Overall the UI/UX is a great experience.

      Sorry for all of the edits, I'm adding more of my experience as I go along. My VM was set up this morning and I've been hacking away on it for a greater portion of this afternoon, as happy as can be.

      Long story short, just go for it. You would be hard-pressed to find such a good machine at these specs with this price.

      I can confirm this.
      "Holy god" were my first words too. Good work @serverian

    • Glad to see positive review. I'll also purchase soon. :)

      Can you also send me a PM with what the $14 gets if it's double everything? (HDD, RAM, and Bandwidth).

    • Do the double resource accounts come with 2 IPs? I only see one in my account, just wanted to make sure if that was intentional or not. Still loving the server so far!

    • @revnja, it comes with 1 IP, it doubles the other resources.

    • Maybe the best option of LET to people who have own Windows license.
      Congrats @serverian! A lot of good reviews.
      When I get a Windows license (I do not know If I can use one of my laptops) I will contact you.
      Good luck!
