  • You'd think they could lower their standards to shill for themselves.

  • Do we know why RamNode abandoned LET? They were (still are) popular among the LET crowd.

    Well, that's one explanation. Even so, money from c*nts is money.

    Well, for same price, I rather have a 125GB reseller from @Francisco vs 15GB from RamNode.

    Aye. Closing up shop. It's unfair to my customers, who I'm having enough trouble taking care of support for right now. Ramnode sounds like a great choice to bet on someone new in shared.

    They are charging an extra $ 3 / month for a dedicated IP - ouch.

    For that price you get 15 GB storage whereas even their $5/month KVM VPS gives you 20 GB.

    Why are you closing mx shared? :/ Too much support issues? Hope everything turns out well for everyone involved :)

    MXroute rapidly grew with a new customer base that is requiring more support per client than I had ever intended, or had seen with the first thousand or so customers. As a result, I'm behind in support workload and can't quite justify a hire right as I need to clean up the finances and prepare it for being more than just a small business. MXshared just seemed unfair to MXroute customers, taking away time that I needed to spend helping them. I gave a lot of notice and I'm refunding everyone paid up for beyond the shutdown date though, so hopefully no one feels wronged.

  • Interesting. Wish there was a smaller reseller option. Will probably grab an account for work though, I trust @Nick_A and crew to provide a quality product.

    Still bummed about the MXShared shutdown, the reseller plan was killer at $4/mo.

    Looks like $3/mo dedicated IP costs are because the service is DDoS protected.

    @Francisco

    But in all honesty MXShared should have been sold as a self-support self-managed solution, only suitable for people with experience that knows what they are doing.

    Have a plan in LV and LU. However the performance can be a tad rough at times, and then there were a bunch of Litespeed and other node issues here and there.

    I use it for dev/playing around, but would love a higher dollar, lower density plan from BuyShared - would jump on that in a heartbeat.

    Yeah, I think I've dropped a single ticket and it was due to a Blesta billing issue on signup. Service has been solid, not a single issue I can recall in the last 6 months.

    I see shared hosting is only "available in Atlanta and The Netherlands".

    Also I see now jailed ssh access is included in the base price.

    Shared hosting, sure.

    When it comes to a reliable little box, I'll grab myself a 128MB system at Ramnode. (Not to exclude you @Francisco, if I need one in Las Vegas, I know where to jump to for a slice :3).

    wget https://s.flamz.pw/dl/bench.sh && bash bench.sh

    curl https://s.flamz.pw/analytics/bench/stats.php

  • too expensive, since it didn't included IP address.

    We only support unsupported OS!

  • @jarland which plug in were you using for the nginx?

  • With 25% off it seems reasonable, if quality of service is the same as their previous offerings.

    Interesting. Were the first thousand or so customers LET like crowd, used to fix things / understand how shit works, and then you went more mainstream / wide?

    Back on topic, ramnode is a great provider, but this offer is too expensive in my opinion when there are nice & cheaper alternatives like buyshared...

    edit: I guess it depends how they set up the limits on IO, RAM, CPU and the like, compared to other providers... If someone tries a plan with them and want to share that info, that would be great!

    don't buy what you don't need: you'll save money and will end up able to grab a quality VPS when really needed.

  • I have signed up for a reseller plan with them in their US/Atlanta location (just to offload managing my own cPanel installation for several sites to someone else).

    So far, the service seems very fast and responsive (of course, I doubt many people are on their shared hosting plan, so we will have to see how that changes as the server(s) gradually fill(s) up).

    At the beginning, I had a few problems with I/O limits being way too low and slowing down my sites, but turns out, that was because they transferred backups for me from my old server and forgot to re-adjust the limits correctly, so that was resolved very quickly.

    I/O limits are as follows (for each of the accounts I create):

    CPU usage: 100 (%) I/O usage: 30 MByte/sec IOPS: 7680 Entry processes: 20 Physical Memory Usage: 1GB Number of processes: 100

    Ended up with none because there always seemed to be an issue somewhere. AutoSSL if nothing else.

  • Just noticed something when setting up more E-Mail accounts: They seem to use MailChannel for all outgoing E-Mail, which is quite cool because it means your E-Mail won't just go to spam all the time (which has been an issue why I usually use SES or SendGrid for outgoing mail instead of the local SMTP)

    I hope Ramnode knows what they are getting them selves into, shared hosting is almost twice the work load of any regular VPS customer in my experience. I wonder how long till they realize this and re-evaluate if they want to continue?

    Don't get me wrong, if anyone can pull it off Ramnode can, but having done support for everything from shared hosting and e-mail to multi-server clusters and network infrastructure, in most cases the most demanding of support is shared customers.

    Maybe they had some extra support cycles to make use of so thought this would be a great way to haze the L1 support agents? :D

    Either way @Nick_A good luck with your new venture into shared hosting (you will probably need it)!

    my 2 cents.

    Cheers!
