  • I use one BuyVM for one of my panels. No other LEB's.

  • I have about 8 128's with BuyVM for Single sites and VPN's. I bought an IPXCore 32MB to see what you can get in a 32MB VPS. I also have a Onepoundwebhosting 128XEN VM which I use as a VPN. Also I have a INCEPTIONHOSTING 128EU VM which came in very useful last weekend :).

  • Turnkeyinternet just for our billing to keep it off site.

  • 512MB OVZ @ BuyVM (with 1x filtered IP) since Dec 2011. Nothing else (unless you count my dedi, but that's for my Minecraft community, not personal use)

    Depends what production means. I often buy VPSes for friends and install some sort of hosting platform. Since I know the hosts in and out i rarely have problems. My personal projects are with prometeus, the rest are for testing. I also use voxility for colocation, but that is also a toy, not something for real (it might turn out to be after all, if i count all my vpses, it covers for the colo and i have enough ram and cpu to host them while the host has been flawless for more than a month).

    I've been with like 15 hosts on here but I think I'm finally settled.

    As I'm european, I have several vps with each of the following: - Edis.at - @prometeus - Castlegem

    All three are definitely at the premium end of the low end market. I've been with some great US providers too, however I no longer need US vps.

  • @Jack Haha, we use BuyVM since they are in the same DC as us, so the connection to our nodes are steller ;)

    Otherwise, I really like testing out new providers, and IperWeb and Hostigation are steller.

    Yea, our panel used to be on Iperweb, but it just lagged so much, like 3 seconds console delay :S

  • Upcoming game server community runs off ChicagoVPS until I can accquire some unlimited bandwidth. Like, 10 or 100mbps, which is pretty much impossible with a LEB.

    What type of game? Most that I've seen don't use up a enough bandwidth to justify a unmetered line...

  • @JTR said: What type of game? Most that I've seen don't use up a enough bandwidth to justify a unmetered line...

    Multiple (2 or 3), including Team Fortress 2 and (possibly) Minecraft.

    @deregen 3 months with ChicagoVPS 99.85% (premium) uptime but support is the worst in the world. May they think unmanaged is not ticket assistance but OpenVZ needs tech tweaks.
