Free vps giveaway, idling server.

Over time I have been trying a lot of LEB hosts but now the time has come to get rid of some small plans. As the community has been very helpful to me on various occasions I'd like to return the favour by giving away some stuff. Starting with a weloveservers vps:

Expiration:06/05/2016
$6.00 USD yearly
128mb ram
10gb HDD
1Tb transfer
Location: Los Angeles

I confirmed with them the vps can be transferred, all you'll need is an account with them. If interested just reply here with a convincing reason as to why you should get it :)

Edit: Contacted one applicant so consider this one gone. Next up: vpsdime. Will post details later.

    Why not? Those free VPS are on Kimsufi KS-1 servers so no RAID and I don't feel like charging money for that when the customers data is neither RAID protected nor backed up :)

    Different.

  • Because he is looking for a VPS to host a site and is looking for VPSs for his project post4vps.com

  • Thanks. Actually read his post but never checked out his forum. Seems like a nice purpose... Only requirement for him to get it would be to get rid of that igniteservers banner :)

    Tell him. IgniteServer went off with the servers he sponsored to them. So I dunno why he keeps their banner and the links to them in the footer.

    Maybe he just had no time to remove them. However IgniteServers (Crypt-K on post4vps.com) was demoted from the rank admin he had on post4vps.com when they shit started to go down.

    How to clean up a questionable reputation: throw the kids some BF/CM offers.

  • IshaqIshaq Member, Provider

    Just in case some of you were unaware, WLS were acquired by Hostwinds who will be migrating customer VPS to their owned equipment in the next few months.

    They only have Dallas and Seattle so other locations offered by WLS will be moved to one of those. I asked if I could keep my UK VPS (which I intended to keep as it's fast and stable), but they said as it's on rented hardware, it will have to be moved.

    Hostwinds seems to be running a solid operation and their support is 24/7 as far as I can tell.

    You've got a point there. Thing is, I really don't care for the money. Not that I've got a big pile of $ to spend radomly but I just want to give back to the community. Some host sell boxes for next to nothing, deliver great support and I admire that being part of a small company myself. That's why we buy a lot of small boxes, check out the support and stick with the ones providing the best service and support and go for the bigger plans. We've used hosting provided by some of the well known premium hosts but companies like buyvm, ramnode and the likes beat them hands down. Take Hostus for instance, paying like 10$ a year for a small setup and their support responds within minutes on a holiday. Companies like that just... Amaze me I dunno... :)

    Back on topic... Usage of the VPS :) I'd love it if whoever gets it puts it to good use. On the other hand, anything is better than letting it idle :)

    I could probably use this, replace my 128mb dallas teamspeak server (since it would be $3 cheaper with more ram) and maybe even move my testing LHMP server over too.

  • To all, best wishes for 2016. Have been a bit busy with real life the past couple of days but will pick one of you asap. Need to make up my mind... It's hard.. Any suggestions? :)

    summerhosts.com - "behold, summer is coming".

  • edited January 2016

    In slow development, but will be adding support in the backend for multiple servers soon for fallback nodes haha, since I'm hosting this on LHC Singapore right now:

    https://status.theroyalstudent.com

    Due date is "09/08/2016" tho, which is when my two other nodes expire (and I have to get new ones), but I don't mind, haha.


    Another project idea would be to help peeps with NAT IP servers, so if they want HTTPS but do not want to use CloudFlare for his nameserver, I could set up a reverse proxy to help them attain that. Let's Encrypt would come in well for the situation, but provided they trust me enough haha, which I hope peeps would, since I'm not going anywhere soon anyway.

    I could also open some ports!

    For example, if I host a Git server, and my port ranges are 12300-12321, where 12321 is the SSH port for Git, I could use this server to act as a transparent proxy (maybe with this?).

    This way, I can have HTTPS reachable on 443, and SSH clone/pull/push option available on other ports, since CloudFlare does not have support for passing traffic on custom ports.

    I'll be happy to have such a service going on, take it as doing some good to those who want HTTPS (but not from CloudFlare?)

    CloudFlare currently doesn't support websockets (on free plans) too, which is why I proposed this, too, as I had to disable CF when I wanted to run my own Wekan instance.

    Of course, manual approval and setup, since some peeps might abuse it.

    How does this sound?

    // erm nevermind, see my other thread. I still don't have their trust yet, that's okay...
