    These are simply their regular prices from the last time. What was posted on LEB is:

    Use promo code Lowendbox to get 70% off recurring discount. Their “Explorer Virtual Server” plan would be $6.59/month http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/mountspot-6-59-512mb-openvz-vps-in-india/

    So maybe they meant they're going to honor the 70% discount for previous customers.

  • Well, we are back in order to continue the quality service. We never were involved in a scam. All the previous customers who paid us where satisfied and the ones who had paid but didn't received have already been contacted to get their compensations. @Yomero: If we had to scam, tell me why would we have returned?

    The normal pricing is the same and you can use the coupon 'promo15' to get Explorer plan at $15. This pricing is the most competitive in the industry. Find lower and we will match the same.

  • Find lower? Dixhost!

    Is it obvious only to me, that he meant in India?

    @DanielM said: Bullshit! $7 or nothing on this site!

    But yeah, if MountSpot wants to continue posting offers here, they need to have some at $7 or below.

  • Probably, especially since I've never heard of them and I'm on my phone ;)

  • @Jarland: We are talking about India.

    We have already sent an offer to LEB admin for our LEB exclusive offer.

    @Gsrdgrdghd: As mentioned above, we have sent our LEB offer to admin and lets see if gets published.

    @Kro: We did mail all previous clients. Must have landed to your spam box. Send a support ticket to me from your client account and please let us know if you have any other query as well.

    Thanks.

    You saved your clients list from before? That sounds... idk how its normally handled but I find that a bit weird. Can anyone tell me otherwise?

  • We are still the same - that is enough to give you an answer. Thanks.

    Not a good one though..

  • Can any previous customer comment on if there was any communication when they went down? I can only see their Twitter page and that doesn't look good: https://twitter.com/mountspot/

    What's weird? From what I see this continues to be the same company, consider they just paused their operation for some time, due to one reason or another. Naturally they still have all their clients in WHMCS or whatever. Just with expired/cancelled services and maybe unhappy :) But no one probably even lost that much, if they were paying monthly; and MountSpot wasn't doing yearly offers, so there was no reason to do otherwise.

  • @gsrdgrdghd: We did kept client updated via mail, Facebook or twitter as far as possible.

    @rm_ : I am quite sure most of the previous clients were happy with our service.

    The downtime was just a nightmare but that is now far behind and we are much better now.

  • Never gonna buy a vps from mountspot

    Look here for a cheaper plan. They use Xen-PV. They cap port speed to 3 Mbps and bandwidth allocation is 75 GB.

  • @Biplab: I checked their website. It seems they are providing services at impossible pricing. Ctrls DC doesn't even have a server that comes up around $99. If you believe they can stick to their mentioned plan, try them and tell do they really do what they say. Their website isn't even working properly and the phone number they have listed is directly of the DC.

    Yes, they do - just not on the website. They are also larger and exist for longer than you, without a 12 months downtime and comeback...

    So @mountspot asked me to contact them, and here was the outcome:

    I got a little pissy throughout it. You be the judge:

    http://pastebin.com/sNgyWj6R

  • @mountspot,

    I didn't look much into their contact details. But I'm currently using their service and quite happy with it. Their disk speed is in the range of 60 MBps which is lower than their advertised figure. I prefer Xen / KVM over OpenVZ and it perfectly fits into my requirement.

    If you talk about service at impossible pricing, I'd say your earlier plan was an example of that. 250 GB of bandwidth @ 100 Mbps speed in India at a price point of $7 per month is quite impossible.

    If you want to hide your website, don't include unique URLs that identify it with one google search. Also you forgot to remove your 2nd name once.

    Did i understand it right that you previously had a VPS with them and now want your money back for the downtime?

  • krokro Member

    That was about it. Or a matching offer, just to keep on the side(use for nothing) watch it go down.

    Saw the URL shortly after posting. did write a response explaining. it looked stupid.

    As i said at the top, was a quick search and replace- and not proofed ^_^, might have been things i would have changed if i read it. (To look smarter i guess. - But i've come to like honest and raw)

    So it is the epic geany failure after all :)

    I'm pretty sure he's focused on the main issue at hand and not his unique URLs being found out.

    Honestly, from the looks of it I think I'll be staying away from this. Not looking good imho.

    I have a problem with them keeping their old clients list (it just feels really shady to me, yeah they're the still company but I really think doing that was ridiculously shady) and honestly from what I've seen here I'm not a fan.

    @mountspot - you couldnt match the $3.75 1GB/50GB HDD/1TB BW from another provider using the same DC.

    What is this you speak of ? "The normal pricing is the same and you can use the coupon 'promo15' to get Explorer plan at $15. This pricing is the most competitive in the industry. Find lower and we will match the same."

  • @kro since you were a previous customer of them: Did they inform you properly about the downtime/closing?

    @HalfEatenPie said: I'm pretty sure he's focused on the main issue at hand and not his unique URLs being found out.

    Yeah i just wanted to give @kro the chance to edit that info out, since he clearly doesn't want to have it public.

    @gsrdgrdghd Well you know, my gmail has a mountspot folder made for these guys. (My fav folder is the EDIS one - Its very active yahknow)

    Nothing in the spam folder, nothing in the mountspot folder. I have them on facebook and found their twitter via google. As you can see above, twitter gap, and facebook, well check it out for yourself. its pretty bare.

    PS. your name its oddy amusing to type.

  • I've been a customer before but cancelled my VPS from them before they vanished, I haven't receive any info about them, stopping their services etc. Rather, received an e-mail that they're resuming services they used to offer before, just like what @DanielM received.

    Just to answer the question from @gsrdgrdghd

  • The live chat operator from MountSpot sounds really shady though.
