Which Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals from last year are you keeping/canceling?

Which Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals from last year are you keeping/canceling?

Last year's Black Friday was pretty insane, and we're only a couple weeks away from the (hopefully) same madness. Which of the deals you bought last year are you renewing and which are you canceling?

Deals I'm renewing:
- @AnthonySmith's $3/m $30/yr KVM deals in Phoenix + London
- @VirMach KVM/OVZ specials - 8GB KVM in LA for $30/yr, $5/yr 768MB KVM, $1/yr OVZ, etc
- @Awmusic12635 Impact VPS 50% off VDR4
- @Veesp (vStoike) Russia KVMs $9/yr 512MB - $18/yr 1GB
- @jarland MXRoute BF deal

Not renewing/already canceled:
- VortexNode servers (lol), already killed most of them
- SpartanHost storage VPS (too slow)
- OVH 50% off VPS deal (was only on first invoice)

Black Friday Hypeeeee

    ISO storage + bandwidth, pretty much all I use France deals for.

    Well, fuck. I just gave some other LETurd my 3xKS-4Cs. I may dump my 2x2TB+4x1TB Dacentec shortly, but I'm trying to find a reason to keep it.

    The world doesn't exist to please you.

  • I just dumped a Yeti special. Great deal but lol @ "support".

    Yeah. I like Scott, but his "Heroin Addict" support leaves much to be desired. Only a month for setup, and 3 months later, still no working console? Might as well kill myselfget a VPS.

  • Renewing my servers from Veesp and VMBox but haven't decided on tragicservers yet. Gonna drop virmach and ovh. Probably forgot something though. Veesp and VMBox have been rock solid for almost a year so I'll stick with them.

    Also have something at impactvps but I'm not sure that was a BF deal. Oh and I'll part with my pageclick reseller account.

    I don't know how it is now, but was oversubscribed for sure - then again, who needs more than 10 iops?

    Was a great deal for a year, but the price increases are pushing me to just stick to a Kimsufi and the E5 deal from way back.

    Keeping - UltraVPS - 30 GB ssd for a great price and flawless performance, Virmach $1 special - for $1 it's doing much more than I expected with great uptime. MXroute - will probably keep renewing this for life. Jarland runs a great ship, and is passionate about his business. Don't use it alot, but it;s a great backup.

    Dropping - Hostsolutions.ro (2core, 2GB) - price was not recurring. Good VPS though! Virmach - 4GB - installed windows, idled for months. Shutdown by them because of CPU usage (when only windows from their template was running). Never really used it anyways.

    @UltraVPS @VirMach @cociu @jarland

  • I'm not getting a recurring deal on Jolt's reseller hosting AFAIK, but I'm keeping it at full price as it has been rock solid with good performance and great support.

    Keeping the cracking deal from serversnv / Inception last year (6GB RAM, 100GB disk, £20/year).

    Dropping a 3 year old ChicagoVPS deal (variable support) and dropped one from IPXCore (great support, just didn't need the box).

    Would like: VPS with IPv4&6 and bandwidth for VPNs. Possibly a storage box for Nextcloud.

    KS4C is not an OVH server for this question's purposes, it is a Kimsufi server. OVH.com and Kimsufi.com now have separate panels and user accounts. And you can't transfer Kimsufi servers.

  • @Harambe have you gotten your @Veesp renewal invoice yet? Unsure when their custom panel sends invoices.

    @Harambe said: Fingers crossed Online.net has something decent this year, and I don't get dicked in the order queue again.

    F*ck that. They pissed me off so much last year. Refreshing for 45min to get to the last order page, only to find out it was out of stock within ~10min.

    It's just a small box and I have plenty of them. They're surprisingly good for the price though.

  • I don't know all what I left behind ..so cancel OVH Cloud thing and keeping few game servers there too and online.net bargain of course. Looking only for new voice chat server.

    I am hoping to release something similar this year on pure NVMe SSD, I can't decide if making a big deal out of 1 product group or select product groups or just putting 60% discount on EVERYTHING for 24 hours is the best way to go, consumer opinions appreciated :)

    60% discount on EVERYTHING for 24 ... with your quality its a one should not miss.

    for me, from now on the minimum disk is 10GB so i'll pass nvm's less than this with extreme exception of low price.... anyway this BF for me will be smallest shopping.

    Would buy phx KVM512 at around that price point, but I guess some would prefer UK options. EVERYTHING maybe.

    Will be keeping mine ad well.

    This tear looking for a vps with dedicated reaources and attached storage around the $5 per tb mark.

    Will do my best to get the KVM options up by then too.

  • @telephone said: @Harambe have you gotten your @Veesp renewal invoice yet? Unsure when their custom panel sends invoices.

    Their new system is much more DO/Vultr-like, so I don't know if I'll see an invoice immediately. Maybe a low credit warning or something right before? @Veesp can you comment here?

    F*ck that. They pissed me off so much last year. Refreshing for 45min to get to the last order page, only to find out it was out of stock within ~10min.

    Hahaha, yup.

    I like the focused discounts personally. Obviously more hit or miss than going across the whole product line, but if it means better discounts...

    Also concur with @Neoon, KVM offers plz.

  • If I had any sense, I'd cancel all the VPS and get more IPs for 64GB ram hetzner ssd dedi + GSuite Business for bulk storage.

  • For me, just the @Veesp (vStoike) Russia KVMs $9/yr 512MB - $18/yr 1GB.

    Vortex and QuadHost both went to shit and I ended up not needing the Inception monthlies, so reluctantly let those go.

    Migrating from dedis back to VPS feels so strange..

    • Online FR BlackFriday 2016 SSD €5/mth (8GB, 160GB SSD, C2750) - way, way better than a cheap Kimsufi

    edit:

    • dropping OVH VPS 50% Off - perfs ok, uptime/bw meh (SBG lolwtfbbq), 1 CPU only, new antiDDOS pricing = trashed

    Providing less than /64 means "we are clueless about IPv6". Happy customer of HostHatch, Online, Porkbun, Veesp…
