    edited November 8 in General

    I just got the email from turnkey internet. Looks like a good deal for the services they offer. I've been using them for the last 6 years.

    Check it out : https://turnkeyinternet.net/blackfriday/

    If you're feeling generous, do click on my refferal link before clicking on the offer link: https://turnkeyinternet.net/refer/20140

    Do note that I can't speak on their behalf and I'm only a member of this community and a client of turnkeyinternet.

    • @somik: Do you know whether they allow custom ISOs?

      "Linux will run happily with only 4 MB of RAM, including all of the bells and whistles such as the X Window System, Emacs, and so on." (M. Welsh & L. Kaufman, Running Linux, 2e, 1996, p. 32)

      I don't see any such option on my control panel. Only options to choose existing OS.

      You can likely open a ticket and ask for a custom iso.
      When I was dealing with them a few years ago - support was very fast and helpful.
      Network is not that great though. I used to only get cogent routes, so theres that.

      I agree with you on the support. They are fast and helpful.

      As for network, my current server is 100mbit, so it's always a bit slow. Maybe after I get my gbit server that I ordered just now, i can test their speeds although I suspect my result will be same ss yours.

      They claim to have just made a major network upgrade:
      https://blog.turnkeyinternet.net/press-release/turnkey-internet-completes-data-center-network-infrastructure-upgrades/

      The upgrades include multiple 100G Tier 1 transit and dark fiber providers for increased redundancy and performance, as well as upgraded Cisco and Juniper network hardware to help meet the growing demand for Colocation and Cloud solutions.

      ...

      During the upgrade, TurnKey made significant cost investments into their core routing and distribution hardware, including the installation of multiple fully redundant, high-performance Juniper MX480 routers. The new routing hardware delivers unmatched flexibility and reliability to support advanced services and applications, while also separating control and forwarding functions, to provide maximum scale and intelligent service delivery capabilities.

      In addition to the hardware upgrades, TurnKey also joined the New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) via direct fiber connection. Based in New York City, the NYIIX Peering Exchange is one of the largest neutral internet exchange points in the world. NYIIX’s neutral, scalable peering infrastructure assures reliable, stable internet connectivity by allowing traffic to flow through the fastest route, no matter who owns and operates the fiber. This new partnership allows TurnKey to peer bandwidth with some of the largest names in the industry including Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and more.

      Didn't see that. It was done last year, no wonder their last year black Friday offer was so bad. Prices started from 60+ dollar.

      This year much better, starting servers from 9.90 only.

    • Prices seems to be incorrect.

      On following page price of BF2 Cloud VPS is mentioned as $4

      https://turnkeyinternet.net/blackfriday/

      But when you click on view button to see detail, on the next page price is $4.99 and it says with annual payment you get 20% discount i.e. it will become $4.
      I filled out form and went all the way to last step to pay but no discount was applied for annual payment and price was still $4.99

      They actually left out the $0.99 part on the BF deals page, I think everything still has that $0.99. This is the case with dedicated servers as well. A bit misleading, I'd say.

    • I've used them. Way back when a $12/month reseller plan offers 100gb space, free WHMCS license and end user support, time when I was 14 years old HAHAHA. Anyways, aren't they always having deals? My 10-yr old email still getting spammed with their offers.

      Ahahaha, just been too lazy. I had the server configured just the way I like so didn't want to redo it. But with this deal, I'm getting an upgrade and spending less then usual, so it's a win win for me.

      I just remembered something - be warned that "unmetered" 1gbps part is far from that. Ask in advance what the AUP is, cause I remember they were veeeeeeery very strict. I think it was set at 10TB or something like that, before they axe your account.

    • Back in the past I used a crazy WHM/cPanel reseller offer from them (I guess around 2012-2014). I reckon it was a BF or cyber monday deal. $7.5/mo for a good reseller plan with overselling enabled and WHMCS included. After two years they kicked me out and told they were losing money on my plan. They had let me know in advance and allowed me some time to migrate my clients. Did not have any major issues with them. All i know is you gotta respect AUP and TOS strictly.

      They are one of the bigger names in the industry and have been around for many years, so yearly prepayment is safe in this respect. However, they do charge insane fees if you ever get DDOS'ed or IP blacklisted.

      SPAM COMPLAINT FEES
      A service fee of $50/complaint will be applied to any customer with more than 5 (five) verified abuse complaints in a given month. Abuse complaints are defined as documented issues that are confirmed violations of these terms of service and to be a result of customer, or customer's, web hosted content or information.
      A service fee of $125/hour will apply for investigation and corrective work performed by TurnKey Internet to resolve SPAM violations.

      IP BLACKLIST FEES
      If, as a result of a Customer's actions, TurnKey Internet's mail servers or IP address ranges are placed on email black hole lists or other mail filtering software system list, TurnKey Internet shall charge the Customer $250 upfront and $125/hour thereafter for any necessary investigation and corrective work.

      DOS & DDOS INCIDENT FEES
      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. Services may remain suspended or offline until such time that these fees are paid, infull, or alternate terms are agreed to by our billing department during normal business hours. Customers subscribed to our DoS & DDoS filtering plans shall be exempt from these fees unless the combined number of incidents or combined incident bandwidth consumption exceeds the limits as defined in said customers filtering plan.

    • A company I know uses their shared hosting for last 5 years or so. Great support from Turnkey and great price. I was a little nasty with them one time when their office IP got firewalled. But Support was excellent and didn't give me shit when it turned out the business's website designer installed a WordPress plugin the day before and didn't configure it properly, not Turnkey's fault at all. Clueless web designer who could only work with cPanel and WordPress and otherwise didn't know sweet F all about computers and network.

      I unfortunately cant verify that cause my server pulls a maximum of 800 GB of bandwidth per month, with averages around 200 GB.

      From their support replies, unless you are maxing out their 1gpbs connection all the time, they wont bother you.

      Turnkeyinternet has their own datacenter, network, hardware, support team, basically everything you need, they OWN it. They also have been in the business for a long time and would like to continue. So their support is top notch. I got my home IP banned from my CSF a few times (i think around 7 or 8 times). They helped to troubleshoot the issue and add a custom rule to my CSF for free (not just IP whitelist) so people's IP dont get banned.

      Turnkey does not mess around when you abuse their services. They might turn a blind eye to you on occasions, but if you get their IP banned cause of doing illegal stuff, you will be paying for it.

      Do not use turnkeyinternet.net for SPAM. If you want to host a gameserver or something that can get DDOSed, sign up with their DDOS protection at only $5 per month.

      A company I know uses their shared hosting for last 5 years or so. Great support from Turnkey and great price. I was a little nasty with them one time when their office IP got firewalled. But Support was excellent and didn't give me shit when it turned out the business's website designer installed a WordPress plugin the day before and didn't configure it properly, not Turnkey's fault at all. Clueless web designer who could only work with cPanel and WordPress and otherwise didn't know sweet F all about computers and network.

      The firewall issue happened to me on my own dedicated server. They were happy to help fix it, even though it was my fault that i got firewalled on my own dedi...

      Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

    • What is the VPS CPU spec? geekbench or sysbench will be great.
      Thanks

    • I don't have any VPS with them. Only a dedicated server and a shared hosting plan.

      Great uptime, but their restrictions on suhosin and PHP is a bit too much... My IP got banned once by their suhosin while I was editing my PHP script using their cPanel filehost.

      Recently my WordPress went into a endless loop ever since they changed something on PHP.

      Other then this, very high uptime and responsive server.

      So a quick update with my order -
      4 days after purchasing my server I received an email asking for me to call them up for some sort of billing verification that’s “required by all customers.” I’ve since canceled my order and have received a full refund as I’m not comfortable with this.
