What happened with AlienVPS?

HowhitHowhit Member

Some month ago I needed to host some projects so i searched for a cheap vps and found an ad on LowEndBox about AlienVPS. They did some shady stuff but the service was working fine so I didn't bother much. But today the VPS I have went offline, I can't access their website/user panel and I can't contact them in any way.

I'm fucked?

    Their NS aren't responding, so pulling NS from the TLD:

    [email protected]:~# dig NS alienvps.net @g.gtld-servers.net

    ; <<>> DiG 9.16.1-Ubuntu <<>> NS alienvps.net @g.gtld-servers.net
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:

    ;; ADDITIONAL SECTION:

    ns2.alienvps.net. 172800 IN A 104.149.156.123

    Both ns1 and ns2 are on 104.149.156.123 so no redundancy, easy outage. Looks like the A record for the site is on the same IP too, even better. Now look at the shady ass looking websites hosted on the same IP: https://bgp.he.net/ip/104.149.156.123#_dns

    IP hasn't fallen off routing table, can still head toward it over GTT right now from my SSH gateway box (OVH). But it's part of Psychz active ranges so no reason for it's announcement to have been specific to AlienVPS anyway.

    Wow, what gave it away? All he did was pretend to be some old host from the past with same name, use pirated whmcs & cpanel, have fake company details, defend the actions and do a rage quit when called out to start his own forum.

    I didnt know about that until today.
    What I found shady is that they reduced the specifications of my vps manually. Something wasnt woking propertly so I tried multiple things until I found it.
