So we’ve made it a point to develop products and features that can make things much more convenient for our clients. Here’s a list of what we rolled out during the past year :smiley:

Our mobile app with easy access to your server dashboard, billing-related activities, push notifications, and boot, reboot, and shutdown functionalities.

The instant support feature on our mobile app that allows you to instantly contact our support team from anywhere at any time.

The one-click applications feature that allows you to deploy important applications on your server for free in just one click.

This year we’re planning to introduce more products and features including Version 2 of our API that allows customers to control their server within their software or application. Hope you’d look forward to it!

Thank you,
Stay safe and take care!

    About the celebration of three years old,

    People would like to see classic package deals that release $10, such as 512M 10g SSD

    And so on, and so on

    I think this is a good idea. Please give me a set meal of $10 / year, ha ha

    Hello thank you @Cloudcone,

    I didn't expect to get this giveaway.
    I realize that your server is very good, disk I / O is fast, connection is fast, the control panel itself is complete and useful, has a mobile application. Very perfect.

    Hopefully I can make the best use of this giveaway.
    Cool, success is always for you. :smile:

    Kind regards,

    I won a server from this giveaway, and I would like to post some first impressions.

    The server is located in United States, Los Angeles, at Multacom data centre. It is indeed, as advertised in giveaway, with the following specifications:

    1 vCPU Core
    2 GB RAM
    40 GB RAID-10 SSD
    1 x IPv4 + 3 x IPv6
    2 TB Bandwidth
    Free Auto-backups
    Free Snapshots
    Free AnyCast DNS
    

    The control panel is surprisingly beautiful, offering even graphical control of firewall from outside the machine. The snapshots are incremental, so each snapshot only captures the difference from previous snapshot (well thought from a provider perspective to preserve space).

    The control panel also offers monitoring graphs of machine, but to get these, the customer must copy/paste a provided command which installs a Perl application on VPS. Being a KVM, I like the fact that they let the customer choose if they want these monitors or not, therefore respecting their privacy. The monitor graphs are: CPU Utilization, RAM Usage, Network Speed, Disk Usage, Load Averages. There is also a dedicated page listing all processes from server (like ps -ef output).

    IPv6 is optional, free, and added with one click of a button. This provides 3 different IPv6 addresses from same /64 subnet.

    Regarding the VPS itself, it's quite good and blazing fast. Here is an YABS benchmark. (The swap area is actually a swapfile for testing.)

    Regarding support: I contacted them about the IPv6 feature, and staff replied in less than 1 hour, which is simply wonderful.

    I totally recommend such VPS, considering it's speed of disk, location, and features. I also appreciate them for this giveaway, and because a LET member won this, I simply had to leave a benchmark.

    Happy Anniversary Cloudcone; and thank you for this giveaway!

    Let me guess... is that cake with kiwifruit and hint of lime? Does it have a chocolate filling? Does it also contain some orange or almond essence to surprise the olfactory senses before the actual taste? That white covering is plain sugar, or does it have some extra flavor (vanilla?)
