Looking for storage VPS

Looking for storage VPS

ekendraekendra Member
edited April 12 in Requests

After a bad run with a certain company I'm looking for reliable providers only. Stable long-term trusted recommendations only as I've limited time and will certainly be doing more homework before I bite this time.

VZ Type: Prefer KVM, if not then OpenVZ (not such a major for me really)

Number of Cores: RAM:I dont need tons. It's storage

Disk Space: min 200GB

Disk Type: SSD is nice but not a major.

Bandwidth: not huge requirements

Port Speed: min 500gbps

DDoS Protection: Yes

Number of IPs: 1

Location: Prefer USA but open to options

Budget: Make an offer.

Billing period: Prefer Monthly but can do Quarterly or Yearly

    You might want to revise that requirement.

    DDoS Protection: Yes

    If it is just a storage dump and there's no public facing service to DDoS is this really a necessity?

    @Virmach ?

    Be aware that 1T with these plans is 1e12 bytes (930 GiB) if I'm not mistaken. Not sure about the 500GB plan.

    The 200GB you mention is really pretty small, more of an ordinary VPS than a storage server.

    Nice resources. A lot of the offers have expired or are out of stock. Interestingly, the "company" I just had a bad run with are listed there.

    PM the list creator/maintainer @MasonR if you have any specific corrections

    It's definitely overdue for an update. I should get around to it today or tomorrow.

    If you want, feel free to PM me what issues you had as I'd rather not have providers on there that neglect their clients.

    I'd be pretty happy with a Black Friday deal if it weren't for that Black Friday is ages away. Perhaps a pre-black-friday thing?

  • PM me your intended use case, and I can post a recommendation in this thread.

    usage of public vs private trackers for starters.

    Looking for cheap vps to monitor the uptime of idle vps.

  • ekendraekendra Member

    What do you think of these guys?

    https://my.pieserv.com

    Do that have a good rep?

  • ekendraekendra Member

    Or these guys?

    http://www.abc-hosters.com

    The reason I ask is because both of these people PMd me with offers.

    I've never heard of them. That doesn't mean they are bad, but I'd tend to stay with providers that have LET provider tags unless they're fairly large.

    Ignore PM offers, period. They are all scams.

    The end is nigh. Why? Because the end is actually nigh.

    Surely you don’t think that about all of them? :(

    Yes, I do. I firmly believe that, if one has to conduct business in shadow, they are scams.

    Meh, that's going a bit overboard, a good provider might have a one-off offer to make and not want to clutter up a thread with it. It sounds like abc-hosters is Rickey318's outfit and is in fact a tagged LET provider, so while that doesn't guarantee anything, it's a positive sign. I'd go with treating a PM offer as a presumptive scam if it came from someplace that had no LET presence. While I wasn't familiar with abc-hosters before (so I can't report on any good or bad experiences with them), they don't fall into the "no LET presence" category.

    I apologize but no billing information is hosted on the .com site. Example (no billing or ordering system). So don’t see a reason to ssl it. But, just a comment. Can’t say all private messages from providers are scams because some public posted providers can scam you too if that’s what they are out to do. And we send a PM to OP because I do not offer the service and specs for what was requested to public.

    I'm not accusing you of scamming. I simply pointing out what a common customer (like me) would consider using a service from some random provider.

    No offense taken. With this being LET I can understand what you saying. But, not a new provider.

    You should visit LET often, sometimes there are interesting offers posted here.

    I'm going to go with @Ricky318 : http://www.abc-hosters.com

    I'll let you know how it goes.

    @key900

    Intesting you posted this here. You are the company that just shafted me by deleting my VPS with 4 days notice. No shame.

  • ekendraekendra Member

    I would have to advise against this company LetBox. They recently deleted my VPS with only 4 days notice and then threatened to report me on fraudrecord if I went public with it. Very dodgy. Be advised.

    I'm sorry but "The certificate is only valid for the following names: www.leads4insurance.com, leads4insurance.com" makes your operation look like amateur hour. You're a VPS host and you can't put your company's site on a dedicated IP with a proper certificate?
