VPS Ace – $2.50/month 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Siauliai Lithuania (Baltic Servers)

On 22.11.2013 I have received this email:

Hello,

This message is to notify you in the next 24 hours, we will be preforming an emergency migration which will require us to move
 your VPS container from Siauliai, Lithuania to Alblasserdam, Netherlands due to our vendor not being able to province us with additional IP IPv4 space.

We greatly apologize for any inconvenience, and ask if you have any questions, please let us know.

Best Regards,

VPS Ace Support

I'm really so happy to have another VPS in Netherlands :(

Here lies @alexvolk, the member that was questioning shady hosts. Looks like he is banned now? Enjoy it now, more scam - more entertainment! May we meet again!

  • This is the 2nd provider that has been forced to do an emergency migration from Lithuania after Baltic Servers refused to give them more IPs. Hudson Valley Host was forced to move in May.

    Consider yourself lucky. HVH migrated their Lithuania customers to Buffalo

  • Haha. I would demand a refund and if they dont accept contact paypal. Seriously chaning from Lithuania to Netherlands is a cheeck!

    Hi!

    We have a Central-Europe location, with a good Tier2 and Tier1 international connection.

    At least it prevents overselling ;)

    [BudgetNode] DDoS Protected. 7 Locations (US/EU). Check out our latest offer!
  • Is that with @WeServIT ?

    It's Dataplace so probably either WeServIt or InstantDedicated

  • Jack said: Well if they went with InstantDedicated... Good luck.

    Maybe you should elaborate..

  • Seems like a lack of forward planning/thinking which is pretty poor.

  • @Jack said:
    "Alblasserdam, Netherlands"

    or Nforce if I remember correctly. RamNode (@Nick_A) is also located there. right?

  • @Jack said:
    Ash_Hawkridge Jelle pulled out of a DC without informing clients of doing the move..

    Let alone it being a 1 man show for god knows how long.

    Prevents overselling and creates deadpool.

    Nah, that's just if you aim solely at the LE market.

    Yes. This! They should have asked about IP availability beforehand.

    Isn't Torq with Baltic as well? They don't seem to have IP issues.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

  • No, Torqhost is hosted in Estonia (WaveCom DC) not Lithuania ;-)

  • Isn't Torq with Baltic as well? They don't seem to have IP issues.

    Torq=Estonia. The only VPS provider that doesn't have trouble getting IPs from Baltic is Cloudlix, who are also from Lithuania. Cloudlix did most of the development for the control panel Baltic uses.

    or Nforce

    NForce is in Amsterdam...used by Iniz, KnownSRV and Edis/Waveride

    Sorry, my bad.

    Sorry but I call serious BS.

    You do not do a 'emergency' migration with 24 hours notice to another country because of lack of IP space.

    This simply makes no sense.

    You think damn, no more IP's lets start to look for another option, you plan it, do the very best you can, and give plenty of notice to clients and offer some options.

    so yeah.. BS, it is not an Emergency.

    Thanked by 1Lee

  • Of course it's BS, as you say, there is no need to migrate, just leave the ones you have in place and sell no more.

  • Sorry but I said it when they posted the offer:

    Can't providers do a little research at least before renting servers? Come on.

  • i know for a fact they have plenty of ip's to give.. reseller
    it's probably more a matter of Lithuania is more expensive and doesn't have a strong network compared to Netherlands where you can get an E3 for 40 euro on 1gbit

    Where, show me!

  • @Autosnipe - It is not about whether they have plenty of IP's, it is about understanding what they are willing to provide.

    You can't look at an offer and think "Oh look they only provide a /27 with each server, but meh, they will give me more when I need it".

    Yes, this is the first question that came to mind first hearing about this. Only logical answer is, they WANT to migrate current clients to NL, too. Must be much more profitable for them and they gamble on most clients' staying with them after the move. This would also explain why they did not offer another East European location instead (like neighboring Estonia, for example).

  • I just remembered this VPSB thread from last week: VPS Ace was hacked a couple of weeks ago and never notified their users. Their database was being offered for sale on hacking forums:

    VPSAce.com was hacked. Their WHMCS was victimized. Their WHMCS database was stolen. The on disk encryption key was swiped.

  • Did they send any notification to their customers yet?

    @charlie: No Fekete Péntek special deals? I saw you have a coupon for 50% off the first month...considered giving about a recurring 50% off for Black Friday? (might pick up some VPSAce refugees...)

    Haha, forgot to say that migration was done and I didn't receive any information about it as well. Basically ticket was created to get information about my new IP.
