    Apparently that is not a typo.

    Yes. Its 5 GB SSD.
    The Unmetered 1 Gbps is the cool thing.

    After the OS there isn't much left.

  • Got that e-mail from TurnKey as well, and I understand your aff links now:
    "When someone you refer signs up, you are automatically credited with $50 to your account. You can use it to pay for your current service renewal invoices or to buy new services with TurnKey Internet. We make it simple, and reliable"

    Now that's some affiliates shizzle!

  • Nope.

  • @Mridul are you really recommending them or after the credits? ... say the truth now. i don't see them popular in LET and their offer has too much of the same we see every year and not interesting.

    They also have heavy fines for users who receive a DDoS attack:

    Any website, server, service, or client who hosts, promotes, instigates, or gives cause or access in any form to cause a Denial of Service attack (DoS) or Distributed Denial of Service attack (DDoS) shall be responsible for the billable time of staff and mitigation services at $85 per hour, the cost of excessive bandwidth or other resource consumption, and a per-incident fee of $250.

    Their emailing policy and what violates it.:

    Users who:
    Maintain email lists
    Send emails to more than 10 recipients at a time
    Send more than 1,000 emails in a 30-day period

    Also, here seems to be the fair share stuff on their VPS:

    No account, server, or service may consistently consume more than 10 % of the resources in total available such as CPU utilization, Disk space, Disk I/O, Memory, web port connections, network bandwidth or network packets per second over a sustained period.

    Further down then reads (I love how this wasn't checked for spelling prior to adding to their site)

    Un-Metered (also known as unlimited) Bandwidth plans are defined and guaranteed to have access to the full wire and port speed (for example 1000 Mbit will provide 1000x1000 Internet Access Speeds) and if utilization consistently consumes more than 10 % of all the resources available (i.e. 24x7 consuming 100% of the port or wire speed for more than 10% of your billing cyclce) TurnKey Internet may deprioritize and/or throttle traffic to customer's IP.

    I honestly don't understand how you can recommend them at all... Oh, wait... You're getting paid for recommending them. That makes sense.

    everyone is entitled to one mistake, if he says the truth then it can be forgiven and this thread will sink...

  • That's why affiliate links are cancer.

    Can someone explain my why it is impossible to get 1 Gbps unmetered for less than a couple 100 $$$$ again?

    On the other hand, most of us wouldn't even know that there's such an offer if the affs wouldn't be there, they have a purpose.

    So if I buy the 5GB Disk Space I can only use 500Mb (10%) ? What a bummer.

    No idea if this is the case... I'd be surprised if it was ;)

    I had really worst experience with Turnkey Internet in 2014, they were suspended my account for hosting WHMCS portal on their server. Our main website was down for 24hours called their support number and they rudely disconnected my call by saying can't reinstate my account without admin approval

    I still have a 2015 Black Friday server and have had zero complaints. No,I'm not being paid by them. I agree their terms seem harsh, but on the other hand I would expect them to have a legal base (their terms) to be able to stop any abuse. Are there members who were asked to pay any of the fines stated when clearly you were not a fault ?

    So 10% of 1000mbps would be a 100mbps setup. If you don't want to get dropped got should set it up as 100mbps

    It would be too, if it were true.

    Did I say their service is bad or something? No doubt service is pretty reliable and sometimes you have to suffer just because of misunderstanding and very strict rules and was planning to stick with them because I have used their service for 8 months without downtime but after that incident stopped all my services with them.

    Hosting WHMCS is not server abuse if am not wrong.

    Indeed. How did they justify the suspension?

    They said you are selling web hosting service using WHMCS which is not allowed on our network until you have Reseller Plan
