BoltVM Sneak Peak!

edited August 2014 in Offers

Welcome to the BoltVM Sneak Peak! Today, we're allowing users to grab some of our Lightning (SSD) VPS at a fraction of their normal cost. No coupon codes required!

Please note that we have very strict fraud prevention and all accounts require manual approval for their first VM(s). You will need to open a ticket with our Verification Department after ordering (and paying) in order to have your VPS deployed. Let's just jump right into it!

Lightning OVZ 512

512 MB of RAM
25 GB of SSD RAID 10 Storage
1 Core (E3-1240 v3)
500 GB of Bandwidth
1 IPv4

$15 a year

Lightning OVZ 1024

1,024 MB of RAM
50 GB of SSD RAID 10 Storage
2 Cores (E3-1240 v3)
1,000 GB of Bandwidth
1 IPv4

$24 a year

Every Bolt is backed by our 24x7 US based support team. The sneak peak comes with limited features, but we will be rolling out: backups and more over the coming weeks.

Test IP: 198.46.138.196

530 W 6th Avenue datacenter in Quadranet's suite with ColoCrossing

    We might do a few more for the launch of our Thunder packages later this week/early next week depending on how well our Lightning offerings do. ;)

  • I won a free vps too - thanks BoltVM!

    Signature goes here.

  • You advertised 3EUR yearly VPS, so where is it huh?

    That's our LES offerings. Those will be sometime later in the week. This just a sneak peak, not the full release. ;)

  • @Steven_F free vps's will be deployed soon?

  • VPS must not exceed USD$15/year recurring on annual billing, with no setup fee, if the provider has been in business for less than a year

  • @XxNisseGamerxX said:
    Steven_F free vps's will be deployed soon?

    Sorry, a bit behind schedule with those. Will be shortly.

  • How long do you think the setup takes? Although I ordered the $24 plan as I needed a spare vps. There was no autosetup but I'm okay with that, no urgent need of the server.

    On the other hand I'm wondering why are things always behind schedule that too in the start.

    We got stuck over the past few days. The first setup is intentionally manual and we do a pretty stringent fraud check. We're waiting on MaxMind, because I completely forgot to set that up, currently. Once they approve us, we'll be getting everyone setup much quicker. Part of the sneak peek is to help us iron out all of these little kinks. In the full release, we'll be running smoothly and efficiently.

    We've held up most of the deployments due to MaxMind being disturbingly slow to send us the e-mail with our credentials. I'm about to send out a batch of VPS now, though, having done the most I can without MaxMind.

    Our launch offerings are with ColoCrossing, however, once we move past our promotional pricing, I hope to be in Quadranet.
