Just saw this on a google search, you pay $0.55 one time fee.

I recommend using visa gift card, i never heard of them before - use caution.

    Interesting, will have a go at this one :p

    Before doing this you might want to do a bit of digging on foratrust. IIRC they were putting customers that owed them money on a blacklist, one of the many negative things I've heard about them.

  • Ordered one, but now the site's down.

  • These are the same guys as ServerPronto and Infolink.

    Do not order from them, look them up and you'll see why.

    Felt like throwing away 50 cents, ordered, received new server information without the IP lol.

    I thought I had heard of this company, looked up to their whois and looks like domain was around a month ago.

    You got that email without the IP too? Mine was in spam.

  • StevieStevie Member

    @srvrpro

    you need to build the vm first in the cp.

    anyone else got $0.50 recurring though?

    Just paid $0.55 USD. Where can I find my vps IP address?

    I like what she said, not what it means.

    Don't think so, and guess mine is recurring too.

    The email I received:

    It let me pick if I wanted a subscription payment or just one-time. I went with one-time. lol

    The state of Florida has a 9.5% tax. :o

    Is inflation really at 0.5%? What a conundrum...

    I can't get mine to work. I got an IP, but it's not pinging.

    Edit: The console works.

    By default, your network has been delivered with Source NAT Public IP Addresses.

    To allow external access you must configure your network from the Network Section in the Control Panel.

    1. Configure Outbound Firewall Rules which define the internal IP Addresses that are allowed to access the Public Internet. For example, if you wish to allow every internal IP public acceess, with TCP, UDP, and All Ports, you would insert 0.0.0.0/0, allow TCP & UDP, and allow all ports.

    2. From the Inbound Firewall settings, you will need to open up the ports to the IP Addresses you wish it to be reached from, from the Internet. 0.0.0.0/0 will allow all IP Addresses. If you want it completely open, you will need to configure ports 1 to 65000.

    3. From the Port forwarding settings, You will need to forward the ports you wish to the internal IP Addresses as you require. For instance, port 80 for HTTP, 22 for SSH. A complete list can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TCP_and_UDP_port_numbers

    You may also configure the Load Balancer to distribute traffic according to your requirements acrosss multiple VMs.

    Do NOT trust Fortatrust/cloud/whatever in ANY WAY. Do NEVER give them any CC details.

    You've been warned.

    I use PP.

    How abt paypal? what bad could happen on a one time payment of .55? I am still not getting their modus operandi in this. Even if they charge USD0.5/m payable monthly via paypal for a 2GB KVM?

    Their blacklist page as discussed at http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/11896/fortatrust-adding-non-paying-clients-to-shameroll-with-a-public-blacklist-page is no more..

  • RurikoRuriko Member

    I don't recommend Fortatrust. Last month they had a promotion of giving 2months free for the vps so I signed up and never got the vps for waiting a week. I even submitted a ticket and it never got replied and they cancelled my account. So in the end they're a shitty company

  • I saw in their page told that there is only 0.55 verification fee but it shows $0.55 in the shopping cart.
    In addition, default port speed is 10Mbps and it needs additional $2/m for 100mbps (and $9/m for gigabit port). Are the default one ok?

  • comXyzcomXyz Member

    I think you guys will never receive your VPS...
