FAQ

I'm an Apple user and Android scares me. If I win a tablet, do I need a one-button mouse to use it?
No! Just use the two five-button mice attached to each of your arms.

I live in San Francisco and prefer green latte bamboo Evian wheatgrass psyllium husk colonics for breakfast instead of coffee. What will I use the Espresso maker for if I win it?
Christmas is coming and it makes a wonderful gift for your family members in flyover states.

Can I plug the external hard drive into my phone?
Probably not. But it's great for your Raspberry Pi Backpack Area Network, you little hipster.

If I win a $20 account credit, how many years of an $11.88 VPS is that?
Approximately 1.683501683501684. Don't tell @dustinc, but if you play your cards right, some of that could stretch over 2024 and you'll get a leap day also. Not sure RackNerd has factored that into their operational costs, heh heh heh...

No one can really sell VPSes for less than a dollar a month, right?
Mine has been working fine for nearly 2 years. Check out their LA offer, too!

    Raspberry Pi is sold out.
    You can rent one from https://rpiservers.com/ and attach the external hard drive for $3.50/month.

    There's probably an NCIS episode in the works where they try to stop the tablet from being hacked and using all ten fingers on the tablet at the same time.

    Thank you for the great hosting experience thus far.

  • Why does lowendtalk give so much attention to Racknerd? Doesn't seem fair to all the other great providers.

    Why does lowendtalk give so much attention to Racknerd? Doesn't seem fair to all the other great providers.

    Hi @melp57 -- appreciate the question, and perhaps you weren't looking for an answer from us directly, but we just wanted to point out that LET/LEB has no favoritism on us, over any other provider. All of the exposure that we receive on here, and even outside of LEB/LET (such as on our social media channels and other communities) is as a result of the work we put in. It doesn't happen out of nowhere and there's no such thing as microwaved success - no one else is holding our hand or doing it for us, it's an intentional effort that happens as a result of hard work and consistency.

    Additionally, I did want to point out that Patron Providers on LET can post every 10 days on LET, but we don't even do that, in 2022 we've posted less than a handful of new offer threads, but naturally our threads stay quite engaged and relevant as a result of the excellent reputation we've built. Over time, we've naturally evolved to become a community fan favorite (and was voted by the LET community as the #1 top provider + #1 most professional). So in that sense, we are loved by the community members like yourself, not so much LET/LEB itself as a platform.

    Look, the reality is, no one should expect that someone hand-holds their business. I don't know of a single successful business that is successful because they just sat back and let somebody else take the wheel. That's actually an absurd idea to be honest. There's a lot of exposure/opportunity for providers to take advantage of, but neither you, me, nor LEB/LET admins can force providers to take advantage of these opportunities. In fact, based on what I've seen, LEB basically begs providers to take advantage of these opportunities because not enough do, via numerous announcements/posts such as:

    I appreciate where you are coming from but the real question is: Are there any providers that can sincerely say they are investing the same level of time and energy into their brand as we are, and still NOT receiving the exposure opportunities here on LEB/LET? i.e. are they conducting interviews that are not being published? Are they contributing giveaways that are not being featured? Are they investing in banner ads but not being displayed? Are they submitting offers to LEB but not getting featured? Are they contributing guest posts or technical tutorials to LEB but not getting them published? Are they coming up with creative ways to keep their brand relevant and engaged?

    There's truly no secret recipe here other than putting in the work. In earlier guest posts and interviews on LEB, I touched on some of these marketing and business operation points/tips to help fellow providers. Some providers have also reached out to me for advice (which I don't mind), always happy to help fellow providers and share tips on what I've found to work. You can read those posts here:

    Thanks for explaining it so I understand better now. I've been your customer for over a year now, and hands down, you are one of the best. I do understand the effort you put in here. Just the fact that you actually answer pretty much every comment on every post you have here. I just didn't realize what it takes to be on the top here. Thanks for bringing it to my attention the work you really put in here.
    There's other providers here that are as top notch as your company, they are just way smaller and can't put in the same amount of effort, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth our time, we just have to find them deeper buried and pages way past you. 😃.
    I truly like supporting the little guys as much as the bigger fish like Racknerd. A provider I also have VPS's with, have the same fantastic ticket response times as yours.
    We love Racknerd, as well as many of the little guys!
    Thanks

    Hi @melp57 -- I sincerely appreciate the recognization as well as your support. It's beyond refreshing to see our valued customers provide positive feedback regarding the services we provide simply because we work so hard to provide quality, stability and support that you can reach in the most critical times.

    In regards to providers being smaller than RackNerd, though equal in terms of service offerings, and support - I agree, there are many, but that still doesn't mean that they can't invest in their brand on platforms such as LEB/LET where there are so many freebies to take advantage of. We encourage providers to participate, and hope for their continued success. There's enough business for everyone, and tons of untapped markets that providers can deploy in to help deliver the community with diverse deals.

    Thank You once again for the support, your business, and for being so vocal. It's people like you who help, inspire, and keep the community thriving.

  • I have used racknerd's LA DC02 and SJC's VPS for more than a year. Their ticket response speed is the fastest among low-cost vps. Now RN is more and more like a large-scale IDC.
    ps. Stability needs to be improved

    Hi @chris477chormier -- we sincerely appreciate your business and are glad to know that you're very happy with the level of support we provide.

    In terms of stability improvements, if I had to guess, you're referring to the network latency (as it may fluctuate due to your region) and local congestion. We do utilize Noction IRP in Los Angeles DC-02 along with carriers best suited for your region, though even then as mentioned above congestion locally or other similar network factors come into play with servicing your region including GFW issues, etc. Rest assured, for the price, performance and overall network performance - you're getting the best of all worlds :)

    If you're after something more premium, and your budget allows - and assuming that GIA is the most suitable for you, we can work out custom deals for this network too :) Just reach out at [email protected]

    In the past year, I have encountered IPV4 offline once, and ipv6 address offline twice. After the ticket, Responded in about 5 minutes and helped me recover.
    Overall it's still great, especially the ticket responsiveness
