    @dustinc You got me! :open_mouth:
    Should've got the smallest but next one up was just too good a value compared to my three soon to be cancelled Virmach ones.

    I had no interaction with anyone from Virmach, never opened tickets etc, so I have nothing to say about those aspects.

    The servers themselves are fine, it's that in my case the deals I got had very small resources which made them impractical for what I use them for - a cheap yearly place to stage projects, take over a small task, etc.

    In my case, those projects/tasks required a bit more than what was available to me with the virmach bf deals. Ive recently stocked up on enough racknerd 11.11 gems to definitely see me through the year, and a heck of a lot more practical for my intended use.

    To each their own..

    BF2017, 384MB, $4
    It's underutilized at the moment: Asterisk, where I can call my bedroom from my bathroom.
    Given it's cheaper than a chocolate bar, I'm keeping it for future use.

    BF2019, 4GB, $25
    After two downtimes (complete with IP changed and data wiped) and slow speeds to China, I'm definitely canceling this one.
    It's currently running a Wikipedia offline archive for my father to read. This can be moved to one of my other boxes.

  • @elliotc said:

    IPv4 shortage can be alleviated if Virmach allows me to request removal of the second IPv4 without charging an administrative fee.

    I deleted ifupdown package not knowing OpenVZ6 requires it for networking, and technical support added a second IP thinking it would solve the problem.
    Now it becomes KVM and DHCP would only give me one IP, so the other isn't actually usable.

    after buying 6 in 2018 BF deals and using them....i decided not to buy anymore from virmach at all.

    those deals are good only for idling (infact a vps was suspended stating some reason which i didn't even logged in once)

    That sounds like your server got hacked and you were a bad neighbour. Don't do that. Either set it up with security and automatic updates, or power it down.

    Really? Those are the only ones I'm keeping. Try switching DNS to https://nat64.net/ for outbound v4 connectivity (to anything with a hostname)

  • @seenu said: those deals are good only for idling (infact a vps was suspended stating some reason which i didn't even logged in once)

    I'm actively using my VirMach servers and find them quite good and stable. Of course, you need to understand your own usage and do stuff like offloading logs to reduce I/O, but generally as a HAProxy frontend, nameserver, etc. they are fine.

    I plan to keep most of mine for another year, but will let some go just because I have too many and want more diversity in providers (and geographically).

  • Im getting now no initial reply from support after more than 10 hours of initial ticket from Virmach. The service is offline.

    Same here. I am running a WooCommerce store on their BF2018 $1/year 1GB/1core VPS and it is working fine. No issues so far.
    I also have another $24/year 8GB/4Core VPS which is idle. Thinking whether to renew or not. I am thinking of moving that WooCommerce store to this VPS in which case I will renew.
