AnyNode VPS Customers Moving To BuyVM

AnyNode VPS Customers Moving To BuyVM

After much discussions and deliberation internally, we’ve decided to partner with BuyVM (Frantech Solutions) to acquire all AnyNode VPS accounts. BuyVM is a well established provider in the hosting space and a long time partner of AnyNode’s - providing us with bandwidth in our Las Vegas location.

This move means a higher quality of service for VPS customers, a new VPS management panel, access to new add-ons like DDoS protected IPs, and much more. Features we already offer, like free DirectAdmin licenses and BGP sessions are also available at BuyVM.

This decision stems from a falling out we had with developers building our new in-house VPS panel. Things weren’t progressing as we expected and it effectively left us starting over on development. We feel this move leaves our VPS customers in even more capable hands and allows us to focus on other parts of the company.

In order to facilitate this move, there is manual action required on your part. VPS’s will be recreated at BuyVM, including an IP address change. Please read the instructions below carefully to request your new VPS.

This applies to all AnyNode VPS customers (KVM, OpenVZ Wedge). Las Vegas VPS’s will be recreated immediately, Miami VPS’s will be recreated in the coming weeks - or you can request a move to Las Vegas to have a new BuyVM VPS recreated immediately.

All AnyNode VPS’s will be shut down by August 1st, 2021.

Important Instructions

1 - Create An Account With BuyVM

VPS customers must create an account at BuyVM (if you don’t already have one). We will not be migrating customer details or logins, you must create an account at https://my.frantech.ca/register.php

Use real information when signing up to avoid being denied by the fraud detection system.

Please use the same email you use at AnyNode when creating the account to make it easier to verify you.

2 - Open A Billing Ticket And Request A Move OR Account Credit

Open a ticket with BuyVM’s billing department. In this ticket please tell them whether you’d like to have a new service provisioned with the same specifications as your current plan, or if you’d like an account credit.

You must include the IP address(es) of your current AnyNode VPS(‘s).

Ticket Subjects:

AnyNode Migration - [IP.Address]

AnyNode Migration - Account Credit

3 - A New VM Will Be Created At BuyVM - OR Account Credits Assigned

After verifying the details, BuyVM will create a VPS to the same specifications as your current AnyNode plan and provide a free month of service for you to migrate your data. You will be assigned a new IP address for the VM.

If you’ve selected the account credit option, the remaining time on your current AnyNode VPS(‘s) will be calculated as a credit and applied to your BuyVM account.

4 - All AnyNode VPS’s Will Be Terminated August 1st

Important - If you have a recurring payment setup with Paypal for your AnyNode VPS, you must login to Paypal and cancel it yourself.

If you do not follow the above steps to request a new VPS at BuyVM, all AnyNode hosted VPS’s will go offline on August 1st, 2021. So please get a head start on this and get your new VPS provisioned with BuyVM to avoid service interruption.


Service-Specific Notices

OpenVZ Wedges

BuyVM does not offer OpenVZ plans, so OpenVZ VPS customers who choose to migrate their service will be provisioned with a similar specification KVM VPS instead of an OpenVZ one.

OpenVZ Resellers

BuyVM does not have a reseller system in place, but may be able to provide some options to resellers. Please reach out to BuyVM’s sales department via ticket to discuss these options.

Dedicated, Managed & IP Resource Customers

There are no changes to AnyNode Dedicated, Managed or IP Resource customers - this change only impacts VPS plans.


From the team here at AnyNode, we just want to say thank you for your patronage and trust in us over the years. This transition was a tough decision for us to make, but we truly feel this is the best path forward for AnyNode and that you’ll be in even better hands with a new VPS at BuyVM.

Regards,

AnyNode Team

    i always liked AnyNode and BuyVM, good end for them.

  • aiden1aiden1 Member

    does this imply if i just bought a multi-year prepay vps i lose all time on it, and only get one month free?

  • FranciscoFrancisco Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    Thank you sir :)

    Direct any non billing questions to me and we'll get things sorted.

    Anynode migrated VM's will provision on E5v2's, just like you're on now. Sorry, I can't quite justify a 2GB for $15/year on Ryzen :) But you get access to most of our addons (block storage, snapshots/backups, DDOS Protection, anycast, BGP, etc).

    You get all the prepay time + 1 extra month.

    thanks for answering the theoretical question! now in true LET fashion I will immediately run off to buy ten years of anynode service to get discounted buyvm service.

    ;)

    good job on treating customers well and not just dumping them all though

    The plans are already set to sold out to stop such moves :)

    We're happy with the arrangement and we hope Anynode is as well.

  • @Francisco so will get a BuyVM IP instead of the anynode IP I got on my machines?

    Also - will Miami be moved to a different location?

    You'll get a BuyVM IP. Anynode's likely to use their blocks for the IP leasing ventures.

    We'll have Miami for BuyVM shortly if you can hold on a bit :)

    I have been eagerly awaiting BuyVM in Miami for a while, I can definitely wait a bit longer ;-)

    Been a bit of a meme for a while on our discord. The definition of Soon(TM).

    Sounds like it's going to renew at the same rate, same spec. So I've now got a couple VMs that will never get canceled.

  • DPDP Member, Moderator, The Domain Guy

    Frantastic.

    Exactly. Pricing stays the same even at renewal. We're trying to make this as painless as possible. The data copy sucks but nothing I can do about that.

    That's the goal :)

    Yes, we've been talking about it for about a year now. We wanted to get the other locations ryzen'd & slabbed before we branched out.

    We'll be in Quadranet, but will be mixing our own bandwidth (Cogent, GTT). I'm looking to also join FLIX if things take off down there :)

    Right? I'm hoping the people sitting on $15/year KVM 2G's are grinning right now.

    @Francisco : Do you know whether existing account credit at anyNode is transferable to BuyVM?

  • FranciscoFrancisco Member, Top Host, Host Rep

    Sure, what the hell.

    Karen will have to validate it but we'll honor credits generated from VPS services.

    I mean, I have an active VPS service at anyNode, but I also have some modest account credit there that I would like to transfer if possible. (I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "credits generated from VPS services".)

    @anynode any last minute deals?

  • NeoonNeoon Member, Community Contributor

    I guess you can't pick the location right?

  • coldcold Member

    congrats on the fusion!

    Well AN has 2 locations, Vegas and Miami. If you're in Vegas and want to stay in Vegas, you're good.

    BuyVM Miami isn't online yet. When it is, that'll be open for AN people too.

    Hell yeah! Best possible outcome in this scenario. Congrats :)

  • brueggusbrueggus Member, IPv6 Advocate

    Oh, come on...

    • clear communication

    All AnyNode VPS’s will be shut down by August 1st, 2021.

    • a decent amount of time to migrate

    and provide a free month of service for you to migrate your data.

    • no need to "park" the data somewhere else

    OpenVZ VPS customers who choose to migrate their service will be provisioned with a similar specification KVM VPS instead of an OpenVZ one.

    :o

    same specifications as your current AnyNode plan

    • honoring specs and price

    You get all the prepay time + 1 extra month.

    • Honoring the remaining time

    ...how are we supposed to generate any drama out of this?

  • DPDP Member, Moderator, The Domain Guy

    @brueggus said: how are we supposed to generate any drama out of this?

    None out of this, unfortunately.

    How about if a Romanian provider chooses to partner with BuyVM and BuyVM doesn't honor both specs and price?

  • DataIdeas-JoshDataIdeas-Josh Member, Patron Provider

    Congrats on the merger @Francisco.

  • YmpkerYmpker Member

    Congratz @Francisco ! I am sure customers found a nice, new home :)
