Small VPS | East Coast | IPv6

Small VPS | East Coast | IPv6

edited February 2012 in General

I've been clicking through LEB the last few minutes and didn't find any current offer. Are there any small sized VPS (max. 128MB RAM, up to 5gb disk and ~30GB traffic) that are located on the east coast with TUN/TAP and native IPv6 ?

  • You can check http://lowendstock.com. That way, you also have a provider that has stock, not a very populair order that is sold out...

  • Burstnet sell cheap, east coast VPS's with TUN/TAP and IPv6. Plus they seem to absolutely not care about abusers or spammers, so anything you do on it, will not be an issue.

    @Damian I don't think they allow irc.

    Not sure if secure dragon allow IRC. @kujoe

  • Not easy to find, most offers are with 1 IP Address only.

  • @liam Nope. We don't allow IRC and we got rid of our IPv6 addresses.

  • gorack doesn't allow it on their IP space, but if you bring in your own ip's, it's fair game.

    Gorack looks very interesting. Perhaps we might see Joe one day on the web cam :P It would be nice too see more providers in the north east (MA/NY).

    Does Tim @mitgib allow IRC and does he have IPV6?

    EDIT: Didn't see Tim's post.

  • I'd absolutely recommend Hostigation/@mitgib. Amazing bang for the buck.

    Any specific reason why East Coast is a necessity?

    Thanks for your answers guys! But I might make some more additions:

    I don't need any hosts who allows spammers or abusers @damian, I don't know why you want to put me into that direction. Also I don't need any IRC allowance as I simply don't use IRC.

    I've looked at Hostigation @mitgib, but I can't see how the VPS will be administered nor where it is located or if it has any IP at all. Let alone the TUN/TAP possibility. Can you shed some light on that? :-)

    I've also looked at LES @raymii, but the interesting offers are either sold out or the products description does not even state if a VPS has an IP, regardless stating that it has IPv6 connectivity. And yes, I want to use Debian on the VPS which means I'm not interestted in VPS6 and Freebsd. :-/

    Yes, I'm connecting from Europe @elliotj . I've a west coast VPS but the connection is very slow. And I already have a VPS in Europe.

    "Kids, you tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson learned is: never try."

  • @nabo: I don't recall anything of wanting you to move in that direction. Was just an observation that they're free-reign hosting.

    You listed your requirements and I know I meet them, that is the only reason I suggested it. And what did you look at? On the OpenVZ Order page, it states "3 letter code denotes airport code for the city VPS will be provided in" Is that not clear? I can change it to something else if it is confusing to people. My signature here says I provide SolusVM, so that describes much of what is included, and I am running the current beta which offers client side TUN/TAP and pptp control. I have a /32 of IPv6 assigned, and plenty of IPv4, why would you think I provide no IP at all, how could you even use a VPS without an IP? And yes I see the :-) to denote a touch of sarcasm, so keep that in mind when reading this reply :)

  • @nabo the site indeed does not show that, but what I find very nice is that it shows what is available. Then you can further look into a provider that meets your requirements. Did you check out the ramhost tinyvz brand? Don't know the location but they do offer IPv6 and I have very good experiences with ramhost:

    Isn't it located at Wholesale Internet in Kansas City MO? Or was it someplace in Georgia/Alabama? Rob needs to read LET more.

    If you're from Europe you could also look for a european host such as edis (only the kvm plans will work with tun/tap). I've got a IPV6 kvm with them in Austria. Not sure if Switzerland/US supports ipv6 you would have to contact them.

    It's Kansas city MO. Enetsouthcloud was alabama. Tinykvm's parent, Ramhost, uses Atlanta though.

    I already have a VPS in Europe. I wanted one outside the EU to be independent from european routings if issues happen.

    @Raymii said: Did you check out the ramhost tinyvz brand?

    Yes, they are completely sold out. And even the parent Ramhost. No VPS available.

    @miTgiB said: You listed your requirements and I know I meet them, that is the only reason I suggested it.

    Thanks for the reply :-) Sorry, I'm not familar with airport codes. But I understand that now. Your site didn't say IPv6 but if you provide that I'm fine with that.

    I just recall that there was a discussion on LET where providers nagged their customers about ther legit use of the IP and I raised the question if a VPS does not need at least one IP. And I got several answers saying me that it is not needed because of NAT and proxy et al. Thus, I'm quite sceptic ;-)

    The main reason for the VPS is to have it running OpenVPN and a working/native IPv6 connectivity so that I can make use of IPv6. My provider at home does not provide this but I want to be able to already use it. Thus, I don't need much ressources (RAM, space, Traffic).

  • @nabo said: I just recall that there was a discussion on LET where providers nagged their customers about ther legit use of the IP

    Beware the provider that has to rustle their clients when their own host squeezes them on justification :P

  • i bought the smallest east coast kvm from hostigation and can say its great. I'm running irssi and nginx on it, works great. yes it does have ipv6, and you can set your rDNS right from solusvm, as well as enabling tun/tap & pptp.

    Although, @mitgib i'm gonna have to agree that the airport codes thing is pretty confusing... The only reason why I new CLT = charlotte was because of your email regarding new plans in charlotte.

  • @kbar said: the airport codes thing is pretty confusing...

    Ok, what would be less confusing, short of spelling it out completely? I chose the airport codes as they are internationally recognized, but am open to suggestion. I was also being very sarcastic to @nabo as well, but if it is genuinely confusing, it needs to be addressed.

  • @mitgib , question... Is it a typo that cpanel is 11 on kvm and 10 on openvz? Or is the license really cheaper on openvz?

    For internal licensing, cPanel is cheaper for OpenVZ/Virtuozzo

    @mitgib, change the abbreviations in the order column to: NC and CA, and then in the area where you explain the airport codes, instead specify the specific locations. Because most people notice the table first, they don't really read the plaintext squished in the middle between the two tables (at least I didnt at first).

    In addition, since right now you have 3 letter abbreviations and text-align center, it causes a line break, so it looks like this:

    CLT |
     LAX

    it would probably be more clear if it were:

    NC | CA

    you could even just split that cell into two and then have a link in each cell

    preferably:

    instead of one column for ordering, make it into two columns, with the header column having colspan 2.

    @mitgib Frankly i have no idea what CLT or LAX means. Maybe add some title= to the link, so when you hover the mouse over the link it would display the full city name?

    I just signed up for one of your KVM the other day and had trouble figuring out what the codes meant (I'm from Europe). Maybe NC, USA and CA, USA would be easier to understand and save a unnecessary google search?

    Not everyone can figure out those codes without googling. Instead of "3 letter code denotes airport code for the city VPS will be provided" you can add a legend table or just write what what's what?

    I think it's better to have everything explained than sending a potential customer to another site (google), they might get lost in the process.

    Try to guess these without google: BRI, BIO, PIK, MAD, VLC, CIA

    If you're using google.com (from UK or US) that might be true. But google is displaying content for the regions you're calling it from. So in my google (where .com always redirects to the local) it is not showing airport codes but showing me the explanation of the "Cross Laminated Timber (CLT)" and all Samsung specific products that have CLT in their name, besides various things in my local language.

    And I really couldn't make any sense out of "Cross Laminated Timer" and a VPS at Hostigation, sorry @mitgib ;-)

    That's the side-effect of the Web 2.0. Web 1.0 gave us an area where information could route globally. Web 2.0 forces us into local circles or peer groups. I kinda like the old days.

    But I now figured out that NC is on the east coast. Being one of the 13 first colonies. Heck, now I know why I had to learn that in school years ago. Thanks to my english teacher :-)

    When I here of NC (north carolina) reminds me of a story my dads friend who lives in Boston told. He was at a party about 20 years ago in NC, and he met this woman there and they dated did all the 'usual' stuff for a few months. Until one day when he was at one of her friends party and someone that knew her imformed him that her dad was a wizard or something in the KKK. He literally left that moment and got the next flight back to London.

    I've taken the IP from your routing page but whenever I do a traceroute to the IPs titled as "Charlotte, NC" it shows me that they're located in Montrose, CO.

    69.85.88.1 Montrose, CO United States United States

    I get the location from Maxminds GeoIP database.

    The Maxmind GeoIP isn't any better on my residential IP. It puts me somewhere ~300km away in a different town. I guess its the HQ of the ISP. So how trustworthy is Maxmind then? I took it because the VPS providers use it and I thought it's reliable then.

    Yes, it mostly goes on the SWIP address of the range, but it takes MaxMind a few years to catch on if that has changed. There is a LOC line for DNS and I've suggested @Delta add that feature for the nerd factor to Stallion, but I really don't know how much it is being used yet by these Geo Location services.

    @nabo MaxMind is only a suggestion of possible risk, if I was reviewing your app and saw 150 mile discrepancy of your IP and address, but you were in the service area of the ISP who owned the IP space I would not think twice approving it. It's those that say they live in Utah and use Frantech IP space I ask questions of
