[Request] BuyVM 512MB VPS in Luxembourg

Hi,

BuyVM recently stopped offering their 512MB slices/VPS, and I missed this information.

Hence, does anyone have one available and up for transfer in Luxembourg? I‘d be happily taking it. :smile:

Thanks!

    I tried to transfer one the other day but they don't allow transfers for 512 MB services.

    @Francisco is there any reason for why these small instances are not allowed to be transferred? If this changed, @brueggus would you still be available for a transfer?

  • Get yourself 1GB slice before they discontinue those. 512 ones were being abused owing to cheap pricing and unlimited BW.

    Simple. It can allow for abuse.

    Also, rising IPv4 costs probably contributed to the discontinuation a little bit

    Abuse was most of the reason. IP's is also part of it, but it wasn't uncommon to see someone buy 50 512's and mine crypto, blast floods, etc. When crypto wasn't in the tank we'd see people buy 100 - 200 of them and try to slam a whole core on it 24/7. We'd rate limit them down to 15% and they would get livid.

    There isn't any plans to kill 1G's at the moment.

    The only thing we're working on at the moment is increasing our network capacity, planning the mass 3900x->5900x upgrades, and hopefully offer some in-house mitigation. We hope to have all of these done in the next 2 - 3 months.

    They used to be $2/mo. For a bit, they also discounted annual payments on them down to $20/yr I believe. They've been discontinued for around a year now though.

    This is correct, and you can actually still see the pricing on the BuyVM website: https://buyvm.net/kvm-dedicated-server-slices/

    I have seen this many a times , do not know from provider view what it means, i just want to ask from providers how will the end user know that they are using a full core , from top 'us' value ?
