5 Days To Christmas Offers | KVM VPS

edited December 2018 in Offers

If you clicked for a $5 per year KVM Plan with a dedicated IPv4, shame on you :disappointed: . Not only is it unsustainable, but, I also admitted in the title it is clickbait.

Moving on...

5 More Days To Christmas and we here at HostDoc are extremely excited.
We have slowly been rolling out the ability to offer /64 IPv6 subnets thanks to reasonable DC's who understand a /64 for a reseller host is simply not adequate nor sufficient.
We have also introduced our new look website, finally updated our terms of service, added a splash of colour to our clients area and have a new logo (but our mascot is still ever present ;) ).

Why Choose HostDoc?
With HostDoc, we will take care of all your hosting ailements and provide a treatment guaranteed to provide solid uptime, sustainable performance, and most importantly, support that actually takes into account your needs and wants and strives to deliver a solution as soon as is possible.
Yes, we are still a young company, but our track record thus far speaks volumes of what you can expect being a client of our's.
We are a UK registered limited company, VAT registered and in compliance with ICO's regulations on customer data and privacy.
ALL of our VPS offerings are KVM virtualisation ensuring you the best possible control over your VM, bare metal stability and performance.
We utilise nothing but enterprise hardware such as E3v5/v6 and E5 1650v3. In our bid to offer the highest quality hardware, we have introduced a Xeon Gold CPU to our line up for those whom are serious about hosting with nothing but the best hardware.
Ability to change VPS location free unlimited amount of times (we check IP spam and black lists before approval).

    Just so we're clear, what you did isn't "Clickbait", it is "Bait-and-switch". That is scummier than clickbait, which is more like to entice you to click through for something you otherwise wouldn't really care about but isn't an outright lie.

    You were just trying to be funny, but my takeaway is this was spam and didn't care for the joke.

    Yes, clickbait. It is clearly stated in the title so why the surprise?
    In no way does it shame customers either, however, buying into such deals and getting burned is something that occurs far too often.
    I have hopefully saved you $5 with this.

    I thought "_If you clicked ... shame on you _" is shaming, but then I am not a native English speaker, so it may mean something else, like "Get out of here!" meaning "Unbelievable!", so my bad ;)

    The title is not a clickbait. It is a pure scam to make a reader click your offer with false title. A clickbait is a title like "you won't believe how much this KVM will cost you for a whole year".
    Please, correct the title, it is just false advertisement, don't try to sugar it with "I clearly state this on the title".

    I am here occasionally nowadays, because I really prefer https://talk.lowendspirit.com . You should try it, it is fat-free, delicious with fresh ingredients combined with the deep knowledge of the old chefs!

  • is this even allowed? I should put your mom's picture in imgur and give it here, and for clickbait I say its Emma Watson's sexy photo.

    You're so tight, baby.

  • HostDoc said: Yes, clickbait. It is clearly stated in the title so why the surprise?

    @TimboJones gave you the links of the meaning of clickbait (it does not apply to your title) but you still say that your title is just a clickbait. Don't open that gate, you have a good reputation here, don't ruin it in an night... Correct your title and try to make bad jokes in a normal thread and not in an offer that insult readers...

  • since its xmas i guess its oky. But i agree with jvnadr HosDoc has a good reputation and maybe the title was rushed. Its upto him now if he changes the title.

    • do not prepay > 1 year and check for reviews/support
    • only use monthly from a provider operating < 1 year 🍆
  • I am failing to understand the problem here.
    Has your Christmas spirit failed you to the point that you cannot identify an obvious good gesture joke wrapped in a CLICKBAIT disclaimer?

    False advertising would be offering you a 3 year deal knowing we will fold end of December.
    False advertising would be claiming I am offering $5 a year deals (which was clarified in the first paragraph).
    False advertising would be offering a service I cannot provide and even worse, taking money for it.

    Maybe there is a cultural difference here. Maybe some just do not know how to appreciate a bad joke.

    Whatever the case may be, this is our offer thread and title. You are welcome to flag it and until somebody justifies to me exactly why it is in bad taste, I will not be changing it.

    This the season to be jolly. With so much negativity around LET recently, can't we all just enjoy the coming days to Christmas without assuming every thread (even ones labeled as clickbait) are out to either defraud or angry that the thread obviously did not want to defraud.

  • Haha I think it's that time of the month for some of these haters. A joke is a joke and clearly there are those among us lacking a sense of humor.

  • @PieNotEvenEaten thanks.

    The fact that I see what can be considered a joke on this forum also go by without a blink of the eye and yet my thread offended so many is ludacris. Those offended must be the ones who clicked for for an unsustainable offer only to find that they had failed to read the title and jumped at merely seeing $5 per year.

    If not for the mod changing my title, I would have left it there.

    To those with a sense of humour, thank you for understanding and appreciating a joke.

    To those just searching for the next unsustainable offer, do not be surprised when you find you cannot access your data and have to fight for a refund.

    No, we have not been around for long, also stated in this thread, but since your time with us, even when we had to contact you which we did promptly, have you had any issues or complaints? If so, I'd be more than happy to hear it.

    A joke in bad taste to a few with the loudest voices does not take away from our quality of service, our solid uptime and our superior support.

    To be fair, HostDoc is providing a great service so far, the performance is great despite it is on HDD. Moreover, the support is fantastic and friendly. I haven't use it for production yet but in the future I might.

    Although it is normal to be sceptical to a new provider, give everyone a chance since everyone was once a newcomer in any industry, at least this is how I view it on different perspectives in life. What makes them different is they are providing sustainable deals and act professionally.

    Let's calm down and chill, after all Christmas is coming soon. I still remember the days where I hope for gifts from santa, but I didn't receive any more gifts on Christmas when I grown up as we have different culture here.

    5 Days To Christmas Offers | $5 Per Year VPS + IPv4 <—-[[CLICKBAIT]] | KVM VPS

  • I'm having 2 APAC region services with Hostdoc, and although I haven't opened any tickets, I think they are offering a good deal for the price, especially in APAC region.

    Hostdoc charges sterling pound currency so you should do some x1.3 for USD equivalent. It is also a bit more expensive to convert from USD (either to your card or Paypal conversion fee).

    Performance is fine as expected from robust hardware of OVH. Peering is fine in SEA region but the bandwidth is very limited. My service only has 100GB BW and it also counts both upstream/downstream. I think Hostdoc could have done better by offering unlimited downstream and provide upfront information regarding bandwidth pricing. No IPv6 in APAC but that's because of OVH.

    The control panel is ugly but functional and they get the job done. You can upload your own ISO too. Expected HDD I/O to be like 120MB/s - 150MB/s.

    Recommended for: student in APAC region, small blogger, or small geo-mirrors, voice servers and the likes. Great CPU, great alternative to Vultr smaller plan.
    Not suitable for: streaming/plex, medium production usage due to severely limited bandwidth (and no IPv6).

    First time I speak for a provider here.

    Thank you for the kind comment and allowing us to be the first provider you have left a comment for in all the time you have been a member here. We really appreciate it.
    Regarding your BW, only outbound usage is applicable and inbound is unlimited.
    As you have never opened a ticket, I can see how and why this information may not have been clear and apologise.
    Open a ticket asking us to reimburse your inbound traffic. We will check it and add to your allowance any BW that has been used for inbound traffic.

    I would also like to thank you by offering you a free upgrade to 500GB BW for any one of your instances if in SG or double your current allowance if in AU.

    Open a ticket and PM me here so I can confirm it is your account being upgraded.

    1. You're claiming it to be a joke, despite the warning/punchline in the subject. We're in disagreement on what is humour. It's subjective, yes, but you'll find yourself in the minority here.

    2. You DO NOT know what "click bait" is, and frustrating that you're continuing to be ignorant of that.

    3. You advertised after this "joke". If you refrained from that and posted in Offtopic, I wouldn't have gave you shit, and likely no one else would, either. There's also a day singled out in April where you can pull this shit. This isn't April.

    Maybe get a millennial to explain the difference between click bait and bait-and-switch to you if you still don't grok this.

    Maybe there is a cultural difference here. Maybe some just do not know how to appreciate a bad joke.

    Whatever the case may be, this is our offer thread and title. You are welcome to flag it and until somebody justifies to me exactly why it is in bad taste, I will not be changing it.

    This the season to be jolly. With so much negativity around LET recently, can't we all just enjoy the coming days to Christmas without assuming every thread (even ones labeled as clickbait) are out to either defraud or angry that the thread obviously did not want to defraud.

    1. You're claiming it to be a joke, despite the warning/punchline in the subject. We're in disagreement on what is humour. It's subjective, yes, but you'll find yourself in the minority here.

    2. You DO NOT know what "click bait" is, and frustrating that you're continuing to be ignorant of that.

    3. You advertised after this "joke". If you refrained from that and posted in Offtopic, I wouldn't have gave you shit, and likely no one else would, either. There's also a day singled out in April where you can pull this shit. This isn't April.

    Maybe get a millennial to explain the difference between click bait and bait-and-switch to you if you still don't grok this.

    1. I have no problem being in a minority. Would rather be a single shepherd than a sheep any day.

    2. You may just be right there. I think I may be too old for new terms and phrases kid's use these day's. My understanding of clickbait was the title would be a lie while the contents would be the truth.

    3. As mentioned, I have no issue with being a minority, nor do I have a problem with presenting my offer thread in any fashion I see fit at any month.

    I'm certain you already provided links explaining the difference between these but you are welcome to invite your millennial of choice to school me in the art of clickbait as I obviously do not have a clue.

    This seems to be affecting you and another individual who started a whole thread to honour this one negatively.
    I apologise for not truely offering a plan you both obviously wanted.
    I apologise for misleading you dispite the fact there was a disclaimer even if used wrong, it should have been a red flag.
    I apologise that a whole day later it is still affecting you and a few others.

    Honestly, if I knew a little of my minority humour would have caused a reaction like this, I would never have included it.
    As mentioned in my first reply, it is so close to christmas, I had the jitters.
    I have my family and friends around me and forgot where I was while posting on LET and thought those around me who understand my jokes where my audience.
