      I agree it's kind of a dick move to not list it as sold out on normal pricing pages considering the timeline but they're not forcing you to buy the $5 alternative.

      It's beyond that, as rm_ explained. They are extracting private info from people (signups and CC #'s) on false pretenses. What would happen to a VPS provider on LET who offered some attractive but not sensational deal, and didn't reveal that it was limited/OOS until people made accounts on their WHMCS? I hope LET wouldn't allow that. So Vultr should also stop the practice.

      If you get out of the low end bubble you'll find that a lot of places try and collect your email at every possible chance they get. This is no different and I don't see an issue with a company trying to extend its reach.

      I think you're just being a bit sensitive. The sooner you realise it's all about marketing the sooner you'll stop caring so much.

      Collect your email 1) isn't so nice to begin with; 2) is indeed different from collect your email, real name, address, phone, credit card number, and maybe even get you to send in a picture of yourself holding your drivers license, before letting on that they don't actually sell the product that they advertise.

      Can you name ANY other company that you wouldn't call a scam, that systematically advertises "we will sell you product X for $Y", collects your payment credentials, and only then tells you that the product is (cough) "out of stock, but you might like the 2X as expensive version"?

      Is there any way to tell that the Vultr $2.50 plan is out of stock without having an account and logging in?

    • WSS said: I'm still not going to spin up a $5/mo instance, sorry- you've priced yourself out of my "care enough to play with", with a returning minimal entry of $60/yr.

      I've spun up some of them and even a $480(?)/month instance, though for just a few hours. I don't think I'd run a $5 server non-stop without a decent reason, but it's handy to spin them up for temporary use including for cpu power. I have a number of $1/month servers for no good reason so I guess my good-reason threshold is somewhere between those two amounts.

      Sorry, but it doesn't make a good day seeing a place that I like and enjoy since 2011 being over-flooded with junk and noise in every thread, and rapidly going down in quality while people who are supposed to watch over this just cheering and not trying to stop that. If you want to discuss then let's continue in the corresponding thread:

      raindog308 said: I honestly don't care about panels...sorry to @Francisco and @KuJoe

      Stallion was just as much about features as it was to save cash. I couldn't imagine doing slices and such and paying the shitheads at Solus thousands of dollars a month for them to douche themselves all day.

      Francisco

      Agreed, we weren't paying nearly as much as Fran was but the amount we were paying was enough that having our tickets ignored forced me to learn how to write my own control panel. I wasn't expecting much for $10/month or whatever it cost per node, but when I open a ticket and provide a bug report AND include a fix for it, I expect the bug to be fixed within 2 years.

      The most beautiful panel I've ever seen is Azure's - it's like a freakin' Scientology promo or something with its swirling graphics and flashy displays, metrics, charts, etc. But it's hard to use, so I'd actually prefer to use Solus because at least Solus makes sense. Well, for Solus.

      Sorry for the Azure triggering @Nekki

      The portal is lovely to look at; it's so nice to look at the Security Centre and see all your VMs flagged as insecure because it can't detect the Endpoint Protection if installed using the Azure API.

      Long story short, we built our own panel onto of the Azure APIs.

      wlambrechts said: Think weeks/months from now instead.

      Really, months? They should remove it from the plan list and the panel for now then, else it's a downright scam and false advertising. It's not marked as sold out on https://www.vultr.com/pricing/, so people likely sign up (and enter their credit cards) specifically expecting to use that plan.

      They got me with this. I thought it still available. The moment I load credit on my account and find out the the $2.50 is sold out makes me think for a while that this is a SCAM. I did buy the $5 dollar no choice. I'll drop after this plan after I consume the $5. They should have labeled it out-stock or removed that in their page.

      You can demand a refund and they are likely to grant it (though now they can instead tell you to use the $2.5 plan in New York or Miami).

      That location is quite good as it also has block storage as well, so you extend that little instance with a decent amount of disk space if that is what you need more than another resource.
