PowerVPS Old Legacy Plans

Jan 13, 2009

Is anyone here still running one of the "old legacy" cPanel vps plans from PowerVPS?
I`ve have had one for almost three years now, I was lucky enough to get one on a really sweat deal. Not often powervps offer specials so I snapped one up.

The server has run flawlessly, however I`m starting to realise the hardware and indeed software on these VE`s are probably getting old now. I recently ran a benchmark which scored 22!

Just reluctant to upgrade to their newer 64bit HSPC plans, I will lose out in diskspace, ram allocation and bandwidth, plus I will lose my 50% lifetime special.
Trying to decided whether it is worth keeping this old vps going owing to the fact the hardware and software is getting dated. CentOS 4 is the last version they can install on these old VE`s.

Anyone else still running an old plan with powervps?

Best Host For Legacy Php < 4.47 And Mysql <4.1.21

Aug 3, 2009

Looking for linux and the above, on shared or virtual plan. A number of sites will be on the account and can run sites without 'www' .

phpmyadmin, real FTP's (non anonymous), SSH/SFTP access, decent uptime, spam filters and support in place. No outsourcing of support, and they house their own servers.

DS Plans Vs. Amazon EC2

Oct 25, 2009

My services/sites approached the state when DS becomes a must. Currently I have a DS with Server Logix (and am quite satisfied with it, to add), but I suppose I'll need another DS in the foreseeable future, to transfer most active sites there.

Amazon EC2 service offers several types of 'elastic' servers. The smallest one, citing the product page::

1.7 GB of memory, 1 EC2 Compute Unit (equals 1.0-1.2 GHz 2007 Opteron or 2007 Xeon processor), 160 GB of instance storage, 32-bit platform

If run for a month, this instance would cost me 72$. Traffic (bandwidth) is paid for separately; I estimate I'd pay approx $20 monthly for traffic consumed.

The question: are there DS plans matching the EC2 Small instance (i.e., 100$ monthly for the server of similar configuration, with 120Gb of traffic included)?

I have tried the EC2 hosting, to test its efficiency and availability. I should decide, whether to switch entirely to cloud providers, or there are traditional DS hosting that could beat EC2 prices and offer good reliability?

All the comments on EC2 experience and DS providers would be very welcome.

I am interested in USA or Europe-based DS hosting providers, if any. I'd need a server in approx 3-4 months.

Switching Vps Plans

Apr 27, 2007

Its been over 6-7 Months sonce i have been using Futurehosting vps cPanel - Elite Plan and i have been really satisfied with them!

Infact they are simply superb!

But Since last Month i am facing various horrible problems with my vps in cases of extra server load!

i have hosted only a invision power board forum on my vps which gets nearly 1k hits per day and talking about modifications i have no such modifications installed on my board that can raise up the server load!

i talked to Vik about this issue and he changed my account to a new more powerfull processor with same configuration;s and same value for money!

but now last night i got their email that they can no longer host my vps and that i have to swicth to a dedicated server!

Well Talking about a dedicated server i know that i have to move to it one day for sure but this is really not the correct time for me!

All My Vps is hosting is the ipb forum

I have requested Vik To Give me specifications of what processes have been raising the server load on the vps so that i can get it in deep of it!

Also i did submitted a ticket to Invision Guys and they scanned the system and found nothing at all that can raise up the server Load!

Contingency Plans

Jun 25, 2007

When you colocate a server you have to be prepared for drive failures etc.

I was planning on having 4 drives in a raid 10 array and so getting either a 6 drive or 8 drive server and having 2 or 4 spare drives on the server available for replacement.

I was also planing on having a spare server online at the data center in case of some other hardware failure on the first server.

Is this scenario normal and have I forgotten anything?

Specialized Hosting Plans

Jul 22, 2008

How do you think specialized hosting plans (specially for blog, forum, gallery, etc) with less features for newbies in comparison with those mostly offered by huge hosting companies are worth selling?

How Can Shared Plans Have More Than Dedicated Ones

Jan 27, 2007

I've been seeing shared plans with like 200GB space, 1000GB+ bandwidth for like $30.

Then the same company Offers dedicated servers for like $100.

Now 200GB and 1000+gb is more than the usual dedicated. So if your the host, why would anyne buy you dedicated over your shared. Your pretty much offering a dedicated at a shared price.

IP's On Virtual Private Server (VPS) Plans

Nov 19, 2008

Question about IP's on VPS plans

A lot of providers say "2 IP's included" or something to that effect when advertising their plans.
What exactly does this mean? The number of dedicated IP's? The number of websites you can host?

Guaranteed RAM And VPS (Virtuozzo) Hosting Plans

May 11, 2007

I have noticed that most "reputable" VPS providers state both guaranteed and burst amount of RAM. However there also seems like plenty that only advertise burstable (looks better in the ad, I know) no matter how closely I look over the details.

For a Virtuozzo based VPS, is the guaranteed amount of ram something that must be specified? Or can it be configured for some sort of free for all burstable only accounts?

What I am wondering is if there is any good reason why a host would NOT tell me how much guaranteed RAM I would get?

I have rented PowerVPS servers for a couple of years now. In fact, I have a special XMS setup and one VPS.

Up to now support has been excellent. But man...over the last week there have been so many problems, and even attempts to brush me off with shoddy tech support.

Could it be they have grown too big too fast?

Over the past few weeks I have been having problem after problem. What worries me is that 2 seem to get fixed then pop up again a week or so later.

3 examples

-server compromised because of an apparent OS vulnerability
-hours and hours spent removing malicious code from .htm pages
-message in forum from tech support that new OS used to rebuild servers
-server rebuilt, but on same OS as before
-tech advises that if I want to be safe, VPS should be rebuilt on newer OS

-email is down server wide
-tech fixes squirrel mail, not popmail
-I report email still down, and different tech fixes
-email down a week later

-I change password to WHM after server compromised
-suddenly I can't logon
-tech fixes the problem
-today again, I can't logon

A number of questions go unanswered .. several tickets never closed.

On occasion I have mentioned problems with PowerVPS. It seems only fair that I give everyone an update. Since switching to a VPS account (several months ago) I have been very impressed. While it has meant a much bigger load for me and a steep learning curve, I now have a server that I can configure to my liking and the support could not be better. I am very very pleased with the service and the amount I have learned from the support staff at PowerVPS. I would now recommend them highly.
