Old Promo Giveaway (Ends August 3rd)
I have a promo from SemoWeb that I no long need. For $5.99/mo, you'll get the following specs:
Quad core @ 3.4GHz
2GB vSwap (This has been lowered due to reasons beyond my control)
4TB monthly Bandwidth @ 100Mbps (Unconfirmed, it's what I assume due to downloads)
The secret bonus (which was an additional 3 IPv4) has been removed due to reasons beyond my control.
To get the server, you simply have to tell me what you would use it for. Winner will be whomever's answer I like the best. The next invoice is due on August 3rd - I will pay this final invoice, and then have the VPS transferred to you.
(will add more as they're available)
To clarify: I am asking no money for this server. Straight transfer, with you taking over payments on September 3rd. I do have permission from SemoWeb to do this transfer.
Disclaimer: They never mentioned whether it had to be a current client or not, so that is your responsibility to take care of if you win.
Addition number 1: Sorry, I guess I need to specify. Please comment with your answer.
i would probably use it for developing some scripts in python, perl and ruby. Yeah that's it. No fancy gameserver hosting or sth.
Yes, but where else you gonna get 100GB SSD at that price? Performance of the server is stellar, 100% uptime the entire time I've had it. Support is lacking, but I generally don't need to use it. If you're someone who needs a good support team, maybe this server isn't the one for you
where is the server location??
Cypress, Texas. It's listed as Houston though (only ~30 mile difference)
Some more benchmarks:
What is the cost for more RAM?
Seeing as these are old promotional plans, I doubt they can be upgraded. You'd have to submit a ticket and ask.
Not enough interest + unexpected lack of funds = I cannot renew on the third. If anyone wants it, you will need to pay the invoice.
