Want to trade for non-US VPS

John_RJohn_R Member
edited November 2012 in Offers

I have some sites I would like to move overseas.

Available is a VPS from SemoWeb, 256/512 ram, 15 GB disk, and 300 gigs transfer. VPS is paid through 9/20/2013.

I would like to trade for a non-US VPS, at least 128/256 ram, 2 gigs disk, and 10 gigs of transfer per month, and prepaid through at least 7/01/2013

Prefer Prometeus VZ0, but any reputable provider will do.


SemoWeb rocks, btw. Have had the VPS for 32 days, and my uptime is 32 days. If they were not in the U.S.A. I would totally marry SemoWeb :D

    O.k., that works.

    How you want to go about swapping?

    I already have 1 Prometeus VPS.

    Should we both open tickets with each company?

    On SemoWeb, my userID is vmuser27167

    @John_R sorry for late reply, let me ask both Prometeus and Semoweb.
    I do have acct with semoweb, so I don't see any problem, but let's make sure.
    I suggest you do the same.

    Tickets sent as follows, 1 each to Prometeus and SemoWeb:

    Hi guys and gals,

    There is a user from LowEndTalk called LAKid, from who I wish to acquire his Prometeus account in exchange for my SemoWeb account.

    I have some WordPress sites that I wish to move onto a non-US server.

    What is the best way to do this?

    He should also be contacting you via ticket.

    I've got permission from Prometeus, but don't have any reply from Semoweb yet.
    Probably sleeping. Until I have assurance from Semoweb, I can't do anything.
    I can transfer my Prometeus to you right now, but I can't get semoweb to me, figure out how to transfer semoweb to me.

    Just got SemoWeb reply, getting details now.

    What is your SemoWeb username, so I can arrange to transfer VPS to your account?

    My Prometeus username is vzuser-31586

  • vmuser23051

  • I just transferred my Prometreus to you.
    waiting for same from Semoweb.

  • @LAKid

    Got a response, sent reply.


    I simply wish to transfer ownership of my SemoWeb VPS to him.

    LAKid already has a VPS with you, so he is a current SemoWeb account holder. His account name is vmuser23051

    I wish to transfer my VPS to his account. Backups have been made, and VPS has been re-installed to clean.

  • prometreus will terminate mine and re-provision one to you now.

    Any update from semoweb? I've got nothing in return yet.

  • Waiting on reply.

  • Haven't heard anything from Prometeus yet. The ticket is still Open.

  • O.k., got reply from Prometeus. Currently waiting on billing department to do transfer.

    I think it is late evening in Italy, might be the billing staff have already gone home :D

  • Response from SemoWeb:

    Hello John,

    Thanks for your update and I will have my supervisor to update you on this. We appreciate your patience in this regard.

    Their support rocks. :D

  • O.k., Prometeus has provisioned the account.

    I will not use it until you can verify that SemoWeb has made their end of the transfer.

  • Semoweb is probably sleeping.

  • Any update?

  • would you ask them again?

  • Semoweb says no problem, but you have to send email, didn't you send email request?

    Quote from Semoweb
    Yes we can do this, we will need to ignore your request and await his, let him know to open a ticket, this request will need to come from him.

  • You guys need to get email... I hear it's pretty good.

  • same Taylor Blair guys said that you have to approve or update the email, weird.
    Still waiting.....

  • This is getting funnier, are you working on "getting my vps" from Semoweb or what?
    I don't care what their excuse is, this is weird...

    The move has been completed, go ahead and let your friend know, we're sorry to see you go and know that you will be back some day.

    Warm Regards,

  • did they newly created or just migrated vps to my account?

  • Check your account.

    I re-imaged before initiating the swap, but you will probably want to reinstall anyway.

  • the reason I asked was the i.p was Blacklisted by Barracuda, did you know about this?
    Was that the reason you wanted to swap?
    I'm so pissed off right now, talking to Semoweb, hope they give me a clean i.p., otherwise, I can't use it.

  • Semoweb changed i.p to clean one, now everything is fine.
