ihostart is going to remove all data by 8/13 for moving nodes

Only two days advance notice!

And the network is very unstable today because the users of the same host are moving data.

Fortunately I had most of my data backed up during the frequent outage last month. Does anyone know of any hosts that ignore DMCA complaints and offer 2TB of storage for under $10 per month?

  • I just have one "word" (or well, abbreviation) to say.

    LMFAO.

    Wasn't this the "I'm definitely not @cociu " guy and his company?

    Anyway, $10 per month or per year? Knowing Calin it's hard to tell. But regardless, I'd say good luck otherwise for your budget and requirements. I guess the cheapest option would be to go with @PulsedMedia's seedboxes if you can host your content there, or idly looking for crazy deals, especially during Black Friday.

    ...I just noticed that I didn't press Post Comment.

    Pretty much indeed. I don't think they're the same person - but I doubt there's no affiliation, and there's been some juicy things against Calin.

    2TB of storage for under $10 year?

  • Kimsufi KS-1? If you don't need compute power, or servarica

    I’m surprised they’re still allowed on here after asking for hacked data

    This guy is too lazy to migrate data and too lazy to use some online free grammar check

    No. He is just that incompetent. Nothing to do with lazziness.

  • dosaidosai Member

    Maybe he is copying cociu's database over.

    Thanks for the tag!
    We are not in the "DMCA ignored" category, but we have never received any notification from them (it's a matter of luck, I can't guarantee that we will break the law).
    As for the offer, I think I could offer 2TB Storage for 10 euros/month, but I'm curious how much traffic is required, what processor and also how much RAM (DDR4 ECC).
    Thanks!

    Just ignore this, forgot about DMCA requirements

  • They don't ignore DMCA, IIRC

    Most likely he does this because there aren't any spare drives to copy data to. He wipes everything, then uses the same drives, to reduce costs.

    Hopefully he will not reduce costs even further, by switching from wood frames to cardboard.

  • I'm curious if he will clean HDDs, destroy them or just remove them and resell to @cociu xD

    No. He will just reuse them.

    I do not understand what happened with the SSDs, not HDDs as mentioned in notification. If I remember correctly, his offers were with dedicated 250GB SSDs.

    We just planned a flight to Russia to reduce power costs. All servers will be loaded on the Plane shortly and moved to Russia to reduce Power costs
    Please bare with us.

    That would be great news, as long as the price remains the same.

    lol i actually was in Contact with some DC in St. Petersburg few weeks ago, thinking to Colocate in RU. When i asked if they can help with the logistical problems or tell me some local suppliers to buy the first 50 servers because im German and shipping might be problematic, they started getting rude :D

    With the servers in Russia you would have caused yourself more trouble than it was worth.

    In Russia, if the police asks you, you must provide full access to your servers. If the client encrypts the disk on the virtual machine side it will be on you and you may run into problems.

    Sure they got rude. All EU citizens are forbidden in Russia. There is a conflict with economic sanctions between EU and Russia. You can't possibly expect Russians to welcome an EU business with open arms. :sweat_smile:

    I believe it depends on the internet connection inside the plane.

    That is not a good idea. The extremely high speed of all that mobile data transfer could interfere with the communications and electronics of the plane. We don't want to crash the plane and lose all customer's data which is of utmost importance for the business.
