VirMachVirMach Member, Provider, Top Provider

Today we have one of our best offers yet for LowEndTalk. VirMach has been a VPS provider for over a year now and we have a wide range of services that we offer in various locations. This week we have large discounts for our new line of DDoS-Protected and Hardware RAID 10 Solid State Drive storage plans. We use SolusVM for management and guarantee 99.9% uptime. Windows is included absolutely free (Licensed, Windows 2012 R2) on our plans with at least 1GB RAM. You may select the location of the datacenter you prefer, but the locations offered vary for each plan. For these plans, all are located in ColoCrossing's Buffalo, NY datacenter.

The offers are recurring, meaning you will receive the discount on renewal. However, offers expire August 29, 2015. Limit one per offer per customer, while stock lasts. Coupon is limited to new customers only. If you are an existing customer, please contact us to take advantage of this offer. Discount pricing will show on final page of checkout. Please note that setup time may take longer than usual as we receive a high volume of orders when we post offers, so if your order gets flagged for manual verification or you run into issues, please create a support ticket and be patient.

  • Probably it means that this coupon will still be valid, but at a lower discount.

    Still, the plans should be at <$7 if you order now.

    If that is an issue then we can discontinue the coupons instead of changing them. We only do that because we get a lot of complaints that the coupon is invalid from people not reading the expiration, and we end up offering a discount anyway.

    My VPS deployed the same minute I paid the invoice but with totally different specs. Would you mind checking the ticket queue?

    Thanks for reporting the issue. I believe we made a clerical error in WHMCS. I've updated your specs and will update it on WHMCS.

    Sady said: IO speed isn't constant as I got that ranging from 250-650MB/s. Unfortunately they have my cancellation & refund request due to network speed.

    With the server completely unused, I posted the benchmarks. It was 757 MB/s disk and 81.2M/s network to CacheFly. I'm sorry but as we stated, you should not expect the exact same results. This is especially true when we're receiving dozens of plans and when everyone is simultaneously running network speed tests and I/O tests. It is not completely unreasonable for the I/O to be 254 MB/s and CacheFly download at 25.0MB/s since this is a shared portion of the server's resources.

    I apologize if you assumed you would get the full disk speed and full network speed at all times.

    Is it possible to increase disk space at a later time and are the discounts recurring? I might give the plan a try.

    Unfortunately the discount does not apply to upgrades at a later time. However, the discounts are recurring for any plan you purchase now.

    Debian 7 (CDROM)/Image. Ubuntu 14.04 is available, but only in x86, which is not suitable for docker

    All other images are too old. If you tinker with it, you can get Centos 6.5 to run docker, but it isn't really worth it.

    Just ask them to add a Centos 7 ISO, then you can have Docker + MLS/MCS Enforcement (Selinux). You will need to do a relabel after switching the selinux policy to MLS, but it is quite worth it for security (and it is quite easy to use)

    You can request your own OS by providing ISO, but I don't think we have that OS requirement as a template option at this moment on the order page.

    Thanks for the replies. If I'm able to supply an ISO, would it be acceptable to convert my existing little Debian 7 x86 VirtualBox VDI to an ISO and supply that? It has mostly everything I need already setup and running.

    Appreciate there will probably be some tweaks I'd need to do beforehand, if the tuts are correct (generic kernel in particular)

    You can provide us a link to any .ISO file and we'll add it to the server for you to use. As long as you create it correctly to work on KVM/SolusVM then there should be no issues.

  • Anyone noticed reboot of server?

    RC5 cracker since 1998!

    tessel said: I noticed major problems with a server I ordered not long ago. Now it says "Access to this virtual server has been restricted. The node is currently under maintenance. Please try again later"

    We received a large amount of orders yesterday due to this offer being posted elsewhere and it may have stressed out the server too much. We've put the 4GB out of stock and other plans on backorder until we order in more servers. We're still investigating what caused the issue since it's morning and all members of our team can work to resolve it. The server should have been rebooted and temporarily put into maintenance mode.

    We apologize for any inconvenience but we're closely monitoring the issue. Maintenance mode has been turned off but we may turn it back on for a few hours to resolve the issue.

    (edit) We've located the bulk of the issue. A lot of the orders last night were abusers that were overloading the server. Server load has been reduced by 40% to a normal level. We will keep this node locked from further orders as it's marked full. We'll update you with any other issues or maintenance on the network issues page of the client area. Sorry for not anticipating this high level of sales from our offer being re-posted. The offer will resume once we've got a new server in. In the meantime these plans have been marked out of stock.

    Just signed up and was wondering when the New York stock would be out of "Currently Restocking" phase? Also do you have access to a 64bit Debian 8 ISO? It might be easier for me to install my bits & pieces from scratch on the VPS than convert the VirtualBox VDI that I have here.

    I don't actually mind which flavor ISO I have, just so long as it's 64bit and comes with (or I can install) a >3.8 kernel. Thanks.

    We do not have an ETA because of the stringent procedure in deploying a server properly. It has to be set up by the datacenter then runs through a lot of benchmarks. So at any step it could take longer. Usually it takes 72 hours maximum.

    Right now we're still waiting on the datacenter.

    As for Debian 8, we can allow you to use your own ISO. We also have access to a lot of ISOs so I'm sure it'll be on the list if you can't locate it yourself.

    We can provide a refund at any time but we're still backordered. Datacenter said it would be in by the end of this week. However, there's been several delays.

    catding said: do you support custom iso?

    Yes

  • It's been seven days since I ordered - starting to become inconvenient. I'll give it until Tuesday but will then go for a refund & move on. Maybe wise to have things in stock before selling them next time?

    We were in stock before we sold them; it was a large empty server. The offer was much more popular than anticipated and was re-posted by people on other websites.

    We decided to put the plans on backorder and clearly marked it as "restocking" instead of expiring the coupon. We're not holding your money hostage and you can cancel the backorder at any time for a refund. This is your choice and we never promised any ETA or lied and said we were going to restock it "within 24 hours" like some others hosts do to encourage backorders. This was just a courtesy backorder we did to give people a chance to get a really cheap plan.

  • VirMachVirMach Member, Provider, Top Provider

    @briangriffin We received the new server yesterday and we're provisioning everyone's plans now. This server has improved I/O performance, but slightly worse CPU (2.0GHz instead of 2.1GHz) in case we published different information anywhere or that changes anything for you.

    Thanks for waiting.

  • You're welcome and glad to receive the confirmation email this morning. :-)
