      Why are we getting this stuff auto-imported? If the provider has a tag then they should show up and post it themselves. If they don't have a provider tag, then how come they are exempt from the rules?

      Unfortunately, we receive nothing about this. LEB imported offers are supposed to be indicated, as per what jbiloh said earlier. But I see nothing in the thread title.

      No clear communications are given and they are just trying to squeeze every last bit of LowEndTalk.

      The end is nigh.

      @System is Debian10 an option? And how to unselect Windows Server? Shopping cart shows both Linux and Windows Server 2012.
      Also what is Locantion : New York ? I looked up the map of New York, and could see Binghamton.


      The end is indeed nigh. I am forced to ask questions to an OP who is probably a bot and is advertising services of a provider who is not a provider on LET.

      Debian 10 is not supported just yet, we might support it on 2022. Windows Server is included by default because we allow dual-boot on our VPS.

      How much might be the value of LET that they will be willing to sell for? Might be a lot today but soon it could drop to $7.

    • What a joke those prices

      relentless collector of highest clocked, highest performing KVM/NVMe/Gbit VPSes at the most competitive rates. just to hard idle them. zero knowledge on coding/programming; a mere hobbyist.

      @jbiloh - do you know anything about this company? Are they legit? Not looking to dump on a deal that don't deserve it, but at first glance it doesn't look like this one is exactly putting your best foot forward here. Checking for reviews now ...

      Given that they've apparently been around since 2013 but do not have a provider tag on LET, it seems reasonable to ask - can you vouch for these guys?

      Please advise.

      Found a couple recent reviews: https://www.scamadviser.com/reviews/314390/dcnhost.com

      EDIT2: Also, some informative commentary from LEB :smiley:

      https://lowendbox.com/blog/dcnhost-openvz-and-kvm-plans-on-sale-as-low-as-35-a-year-new-york-server/

      Abdul:
      Not impressed with this host, nearing the end of my 1 yr and will not be renewing.
      I have been monitoring the 2 KVM VPS’s I purchased around a year ago using zabbix a zabbix server hosted elsewhere, the hosting provider does weird things at odd hours and doesn’t have clear a explanation as to what happened… ‘its working now’ is the theme they want to close their support tickets on, which makes this a highly unreliable host.
      Just trying to figure out what happened to avoid this happening again is an exercise in futility with DCNHost.
      They are either moving VMs across hypervisors, pausing them and starting them again, making changes to the network that they hope wont be observed idk and at this point idc.

      Someone should build a bot to "auto-import" those reviews too :)

      Maybe so ... Still something to be said for a bit of human curation I think.

      Anyway - without getting too deep in the weeds on this one, bottom line seems to be not great, though maybe not quite an outright scam or summerhost.

      Not a great way to break the ice vis a vis "leveraging the synergy" to "optimize the potential" LEB / LET "value proposition" in my opinion.

      More likely than not to result in unintended consequences ... possibly much wailing and gnashing of teeth and so forth - the proverbial agonizing reappraisal. And all that good stuff.

      tl;dr: Lulz ...

      Them posting offers has literally no affect on the seo rankings. You didn't mention seo anywhere lmao. They could close the forum and still monetize the domain with the authority it has.

      Thing is, that inertial authoritah might just serve to seriously "leverage some synergy" in the form of mucho organic SEO juice for each and every LEB offer that shows up here, for butter or for wurst.

      If it's crap such as DCNHost, these bot-posted threads on LET might end up tipping the balance to show up over what until now has just been background noise in terms of SEO. If history is any guide, it might not be a pretty sight when it's all said and done.

      So ... what to do, what to do .... If informative comments are hidden or no-followed etc in an attempt to massage the organic SEO, it's quite possible that they will come back in a form more powerful than one could ever imagine elsewhere on the wild wild web. That's just a fact of lowend life on the internet.

      All things considered ... maybe better if whoever has been tasked with improving LEB's bottom line actually puts some work into improving the quality of their offerings there. Might even start by putting some thought into how to filter their feed to prevent dubious specimens such as DCNHost from showing up here on LET (where they will likely be exposed to the harsh nigh of day).

      Then maybe for extra credit either remove those turkeys from LEB as well - and/or give them the tools and motivation to straighten up and fly right. And let them decide whether they are ready for LET primetime. Like, maybe by applying for a provider tag or something ...

      Crazy idea, I know. But these days it seems like everything is possible (and nothing is real) so what the hell, might as well, ammirite?

      That was my point.

      The whole post, which did not get posted, is as follows (though it showed up well in preview, and I take the blame for not checking before hitting 'publish'): Note: This is the edited, expanded version.

      Typically when a company is trying to unlock 'value' from under-utilised assets, it is for three or four primary reasons:
      a. Competition is beating the krapp out of them
      b. Planning for a merger or acquisition
      c. Dressing up the balance sheet for a partial sale or an IPO
      d. A deal has already been brokered, now the new owners such as a PE firm may be kicking the management's rear end

      In almost every case, the most important value that the asset has created - gets smashed, beaten to pulp, smothered and torn to pieces. Not necessarily in that order. LET as a community has its value but so does the SEO 'asset' that has been created. The downside is that if you try to milk the asset the wrong way, then you will get a pile of crap. Worse still, the asset's value will tank because the very feeders into the system that created the asset will slowly stop contributing.

      Sometimes the acquiring company does not know what to do with a "tagalong' asset of the an acquired company. That's when an up and coming manager is tasked with the project of their career- "make this horse compete in a derby!" Or, the former management is at the receiving end of the mandate. "You told us this was a gold mine, now show us the shiny stuff".

      Whatever the reasons, the end is rarely positive. So if the inherent value of the community and the resulting SEO is several thousand multiples of $7, in order to earn those extra dollars, the management just might end up reducing the asset value to LET special $ 7.
