What BF2019 are you renewing this year?

What deals did you get that were so good last year you will not be letting them go?

I'm keeping an $20 8 core Virmach that has been super solid and a $17.88/yr OVH VPS SSD in their U.S. location (Vint Hill.)

    Renewing @smallweb and @trewq flowvps BF deals, never letting those go

    A ton? I only have one.
    $1 per year, and it comes with push-ups.
    Invoice hasn't arrived yet, but I plan on renewing.

    Within 128MB memory, I'm only running one service at the moment: a network probe written in Go.
    There's still 50MB memory left, so I can pack in a second service in there.

  • A bunch of Virmach VPS at crazy price. Too lazy to list them. I don't think I have anymore any BF from other provider.

    I am renewing my BF2017 deal with ITL:

    10GB SSD Storage
    1GB ECC RAM
    1 Xeon Core
    Unlimited traffic

    13€/year. Not very likely that deals like this from reliable European providers will happen again.

    in any case my old yourserver deal for 20€ per year. still satisfied with the support and server. 2 small idle vps on a yearly basis including ipv4 will also be renewed

  • EHRAEHRA Member

    1) The Virmach VPS where I host my website ($8.95/y).
    2) The Virmach VPS that I use as a VPN ($5/y)
    3) The Virmach VPS that I use as a Windows remote desktop USA ($18/y)
    4) My VPS with NetCup that I use as a Windows remote desktop DE (€74/y)
    5) My e-mail plan with MXRoute ($5/y)

  • virmach $8.92/y, only have 512M RAM, not best but worth keeping

    It was a very limited promotion from Virmach with the following specifications:

    Processor: 4vCore
    Memory: 8GB RAM
    Storage: 100 GB SSD

    But a Windows remote desktop works well with:

    Processor: 2vCore
    Memory: 2GB RAM
    Storage: 40 GB SSD

  • My laziness is going to make me renew everything. Let's see how many more dealz I'm not going to resist this coming BF.

    I have taken several BF deals from gullo/cam, but sadly he jacked up the prices by over 100% for renewal with no added value, so I won't be renewing them.

    "Yes, Unfortunately when the cost of the control panels increased drastically I was forced to increase price and switch panels. "

    In my experience with other hosts, it has been one or the other, or most commonly, neither. My account has been moved to DA AND the price increased (more than 100%).

    Not a big deal, I get the impression gullo/cam wants out of the shared hosting business anyway and to stick with VPS's.

    Just saying that recurring discount doesnt always mean recurring...

  • bit of topic, does oneprovider do bf deals for their dedicated servers?

    My $3/year VPS from Virmach is a keeper. Other notable renewals would be a storage vps from liteserver as well as some hosthatch and netcup deals together with mxroute.

    I believe his upstream provider cancelled all discount. If he was paying the same as mine, it is a 500% cost raise.

    If both of you could post..
    What was the initial price and the new one?

  • I renewed it all:

    • from @Virmach all 4 2019 VPS
    • from @servarica_hani 2 2019 storage VPS
    • 1 storage VPS from HostHatch
    • 1 storage premium package from 1Fichier
    • from MXRoute @jar the 2018 offer of the other board (even though now I prefer getting cheaper plans from resellers)
    • 2 VPS with great uptime from 2016 offer of Vstoike @Veesp
    • 2 dedicated from Kimsufi 2017 Cyber Monday - Emma Watson edition

    I've got a storage VPS from Hostsolutions that expires soon, but given the latest events and the wanky upload speed I've been experiencing since then, I'm doubting if I should keep it or let it die

    Are you also getting issues downloading from the VPS? I used to get at least 2-10 mbps easily, but since the last outage, it doesn't go beyond 300 kbps...

    I had that until about 12 hours ago, and it seems to have resolved itself.
