    Farish said: I do have one concern. I changed the root password a few times using your client area and it never worked(couldn't log in after each change and waiting a couple minutes). It only worked after I went into directly into the solusvm panel and changed it there. Maybe something to look into after all this madness.

    Sometimes it may time out on the client area.

    Sorry, you can't go to sleep. There's high RAM offers left.

    chaoszero112 said: @VirMach I need a server that can run 2012 or preferably 2016. So 40GB minimum. Anything though in the pipe for, say 2+ core, 4+ RAM, 40+ Storage?

    Yes, with your luck, that exact offer (without the pluses) happens to be the last offer of the sale. Sorry for the next few hours of anticipation. Or maybe next whole day. Who knows?

    This is most likely due to the geolocation tool you're using returning incorrect data. We can submit a correction request, but if it's Maxmind, they don't always update them correctly. This is outside of our control. If you have support with your package, create a ticket and we can take a look to see if we can submit a correction report for you.

    People managed to install Windows with netboot ( https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2503430/#Comment_2503430 )

    You want plan that says WINDOWS in name I guess =)

    dfroe said: I PM'ed @VirMach hoping that this issue can be resolved. The flash sale deal would be great for me - if the VPS would boot. :)

    Will take a look as soon as we're done with our ticket backlog.

    CasualCanvas said: I contacted you several hours ago but it still ain't available.

    We have hundreds of tickets on our system (mostly because everyone is ignoring the no support agreement and non-refund policy.) Please give us some time to go through this backlog and you will be contacted in regards to your order.

    MarcusVinicius said: I was also 'caught" even being a customer lol

    @VirMach could explain that "fraud"? i paid this year using the same way...

    It's an automated system by MaxMind. There's nothing else we can do, since we need to manually set the order back to pending (which is not possible with flash deals.) You can pay with Alipay and that should go through the system fine. It doesn't matter if you're a new or old customer -- all orders go through fraud check.

    Also Bitcoin can bypass the system but we had to disable it for flash sales due to long confirmation times.

    We're continuously working on making our antifraud system better and manually going through as many orders as possible, but none of the planned improvements are available at this time due to certain limitations with the WHMCS API.

    hello even I contacted you about a previous flash deal?

    Can you please let me know if I was supposed to private message you?

    I did that with my invoice however I have not received a reply

    @VirMach said: ISO mounts would count as support. rDNS & Windows re-installs (if you selected Windows and the plan had Windows available) are free and included even if you do not have support, to a reasonable degree. As in, we won't re-install your Windows every day.

    Jebing said: Man, this is exhausting. I hope next time, there will be a timer when the next deal will come out.

    We were planning a timer, but went against it as it would be more confusing if an offer sold out earlier than anticipated. We did not want to give the illusion that the offer would be up for x amount of minutes regardless of the stock levels.

    abitfun said: It's a good idea to sell unbootable VPS to Chinese customer, who clicked no service option. No ticket, no refund. Even chage the account w/o deliever a service, cause no refund policy. What a quick money! I sugget @VirMach to reject any customer from China, even existing ones. Chinese are all cheaters. I am exact a existing 2 years Chinese customer. During this flash deals, once charged for none-delivery but cancelled order, second time get a none-bootable also none-reinstallable VPS.

    In regards to your non-bootable server, we will go through these in bulk and check logs for errors. It will be fixed or you will receive a refund.

    In regards to the payment issue, I'm not sure why, but mostly Chinese customers had these issues. Maybe something with the AliPay integration; I'll see if we can find the root cause. In any case, we will not bill you for opening a ticket in a situation where you received no product but were billed. We will definitely refund you.

    @VirMach both issue solved, thanks a lot!
    As a low end client, I appreciate your fair support.

    Thanks for the notice, I'm also concerned about the CPU usage, my prior trial run on a 4 core VPS ended up with Confluence consuming almost half of the CPU power. Atlassian apps are nice and cheap (for small groups) but sadly all are such resource eaters.

    Re-installs are free. We will only re-install if you already have Windows as the OS, so don't switch to Linux for these specials. If you complain and you actually did have Windows on your package (and you don't have support) it will probably be flagged up to L3 support and then (1) if your plan did have Windows you'll get it still, or (2) if it didn't, you'll be billed $10 for L3 support (for no reason.) So a warning to everyone (yes, it's already happened, but we haven't billed anyone yet) who are requesting Windows re-installs for packages that were clearly not marked as Windows -- please don't pester us for Windows installs.

    MarcusVinicius said: "Order Failed

    I'm sorry but we cannot current accept your order automatically through our system due to billing issues."

    what?

    You didn't pass the automated fraud check. Unfortunately, not much we can do about it for the flash sales. By the time we can manually go through our order, the flash sale is over. Common reasons for this are (1) your IP geolocation is too far away from your billing address, (2) your IP address leased from your ISP is flagged as an open proxy, probably because of previous abuse, (3) your country is blacklisted for extremely high amounts of fraud - such as Brazil, (4) you entered your address incorrectly and our system cannot look it up, (5) your information is on a blacklist, or (6) you're using a proxy/VPN to order,
    or (7) Maxmind might actually just be flagging you as fraud for no reason (they're not perfect but this is rare.)

    vanhels said: @VirMach The prices of the offers will be maintained at each renewal, that is, recurring, or will only be for one year, you can clarify this thank you very much.

    Price will be the same. Except if you applied the 20% coupon it's one-time only.

    muffin said: @virmach if one of them is no support one, that will be the only vps I can’t send support right? Any other offers with support included are still ok and can submit ticket?

    Yes, but please be clear that it's about the VPS with support.

    southy said: @virmach do you offer additional IPv4 and for what price and is that possible also in the "no support" plans (as I will probably need to open a ticket to order them??)

    We were actually going to include multiple IP addresses with each offer, but unfortunately we decided against it as the level of abuse would be too high. If your plan is "no support" it means no upgrades or changes.

    If your plan has support, at our discretion, we may offer you some additional services at their regular price (upgrades, migration, IP change.) However, most our support agents may deny your request as we've had a long-time policy for now allowing these on specials. Plus we may not have enough resources to do the above mentioned changes.

    If they give you a hard time just drop a private message here, at least a week after the offer and I'll see what we can do.

    Message to all LET members:

    We want to make sure you have had a good experience for this sale. We are processing some orders manually after the sale is over, and if you were unable to order any of the offers for these various reasons, we can add you to the queue:

    • Constantly marked as fraud (unable to order ANY special) - we will generate one special as a courtesy if there's still any room left. Please private message use the special, and your e-mail address. Please also include one or two backup specials since it may be sold out. We will attempt to generate one. We will only do this if you DO NOT have any other specials ordered (just to make sure you have at least one.)
    • Ordered and PAID, but your service was NOT provisioned properly. This means that your order was cancelled & refunded. We can offer you the same special. Please message your e-mail and the full special details. If you ordered MULTIPLE specials and they were all not provisioned correctly, you can request it for all of them. As long as a payment was made, and in our log it did not generate properly, and you were refunded, you qualify.
    • Ordered and PAID, but we ran out of stock and your order was CANCELLED before you checked out. You can tell if this occurred if your service was never "pending" and it was cancelled, with your invoice still unpaid. We need to process a refund externally, so please create a ticket if you have not already done so, and then message us here with the (1) Ticket ID requesting the refund, (2) your e-mail address, and (3) the exact details for the offer you attempted to purchase. We will only do this if you DO NOT have any other specials ordered (just to make sure you have at least one) if there's room.
    • If you ordered a special and DID NOT check out in time, and received the the next offer instead, please let us know your e-mail, your current specifications, and the specifications you meant to ordered. We can possibly cancel it for you and refund it as an exception, but only if you private message us on LET. We can also attempt to generate the offer you meant to purchase, if there's stock. If you do not receive a response, it means we cannot make an exception.
    • If you attempted to order and were NOT able to pay, so your order did not go through, please do not contact us. There's nothing we can do because the package is most likely actually sold out.
    • If you registered on LET just to private message us, we will not honor your request or reply to you. Join date must be before November 24, 2017.

    I hope this is a good solution to the common problems people have faced. Please let me know if you have any further feedback or issues to report that have not already been covered.

    @virmach Thanks for making other's experiences on your sales easier! Have two questions for you, what's the support charge for each level if i opt out and is the 20% coupon still working or did you disable it?

  • @VirMach Thank you for the great offers during Black Friday - and for a good laugh (https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/2508428/#Comment_2508428)!

    Edmond said: @virmach Thanks for making other's experiences on your sales easier! Have two questions for you, what's the support charge for each level if i opt out and is the 20% coupon still working or did you disable it?

    It's generally $3 for billing requests (term change, billing questions) or general ticket responses, around $5 for L1/L2 technical support resolutions, $10 per 15 minutes for L3. If we quote you $10 with a 15 minute minimum for everything it probably means you've made a lot of tickets with no support or multiple responses, but we're usually more reasonable with the fees.

    We will refund any fees if it ends up being as a result of an issue with our servers.

  • How many more flash sale offers do you have? Do you still have flash sale offers tomorrow (26-11-2017) or will the flash sale end today (26-11-2017)?

    @Edmond yes, the 20% coupon is still working.

    We're not sure when they will run out. We have timed it to last up to Monday morning, but it will probably end sooner since some sold out sooner than the timer.
