    Sorry, what? 2TB SSD?

    @terrahost happens to be putting that into BF specials.
    The i7 for microLXC got a 1TB SSD.

    I ended up giving out 50GB SSD per container.
    So far...

    space used: 175.66GB
    total space: 877.40GB

    But the Location is OOS again.

    Seems to sweet for folks to be cancelling those.

    Next time you have something this nice, ask us here before you cancel :cry: :scream: People would literally pay for such a great server for that price

  • It’s a 2TB HDD according to support.

    I think TerraHost should add a clause that it can be transferred to Nekki if he agrees to co-host the BF/CM Megathread with me :smirk:

  • Black Friday 2020:

    • HostHatch: 10TB HDD, 2GB RAM, Los Angeles, $240 / 2 years ($10/month): Still active, going to renew once it expires
    • HostHatch: 3 cores (1 dedicated), 80GB NVMe, 16GB RAM, Los Angeles, $120 / 2 years ($5/month): Still active, going to renew once it expires
    • Servarica "Polar Bear": 2TB disk, 2GB RAM, Quebec, $48/year ($4/month): Renewing
    • HostHatch: "YOLO bundle": 1 core (25% dedicated), 1GB RAM, 10GB NVMe, 10 locations, $7/year each: Unsure, might split it into separate VPSes and cancel some of them ($11/year when split from the bundle), but that might actually end up more expensive even if I cancel a few...
    • HostHatch "New Locations" bundle: 1 core (25% dedicated), 1GB RAM, 10GB NVMe, 3 locations (Milan, Madrid, Sydney), $23/year: Same as YOLO bundle - unsure.

    Black Friday 2018:

    • MXRoute: 100GB space, $30 / 3 years: Renewing
  • @alilet said:
    Here are mine:
    Year: 2019
    4 Cores
    8 GB RAM
    60 GB SSD
    2 TB Bandwidth
    1 IPv4
    $24/year
    Provider: VirMach

    I have this too...but considering far off from Asia and SSD... planning not to renew..was so sweet to use so far!!!

    too many

    @yoursunny reported to the appropriate animal welfare agency for having too many chickens in a confined space.

  • Only VPSes from HostHatch

    2x 2TB for $40/yr each. One idled the whole year, the second one I used, currently downloading the 2TB from the second one as I decide whether to renew or not.

    8GB RAM and the sorts for $30/yr, my cousin was using a Minecraft Java server, this I will be canceling in the coming days.

    I'm downsizing in favor of savings (USD and EUR are very expensive) and to use my own hardware.

  • Only bought one Virmach vps last black friday that I dropped because it took them a month to unblock outgoing smtp.

  • @alilet said: 1.3 美元/年

    push ?

  • Just 2. But not from last year but the year before.

  • I always wanted to grab a piece of the pie from those VirMacht FB deals but there were no EU locations :/

    Sometimes they have VPSs in AMS as part of their BF deals but they don't appear often.

    One does not simply download the storage from another VPS. :p

    @yoursunny said: $8.20 & 24 push-ups

    So, what were the complete terms about the push-ups (as discount)? 24 push-ups (with video) on each yearly invoice of $8.20, or only once for the first time, like the set-up fee?

    The recurring price is $8.20 + 24 push-ups.
    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/3210249/#Comment_3210249

    @Lyphiard , how to submit push-ups on renewal?

  • where is @seriesn without serisen SGP deals is missing :( :'(

  • Using? Providers are still selling from BFs 3 years ago.

    You should rather ask them how many VPSs they have left from those BFs 😂

    • Virmach - 2 Core - 1.5GB - 100GB SSD - Amsterdam - $12.80/yr
    • Racknerd - 2.5 GB RAM - 22 GB - 6TB - Chicago - $8.00/yr
    • Virmach - 128MB - 5GB SSD - 250GB - (NY) $1/yr

    To be honest, I use my $1 Virmach more than any other VPS I have! (it doesn't do much, but it is used on a daily basis) It's been very reliable @VirMach

    Racknerd's also been very stable and fast. Wish you could mount a CD without a ticket, but I've only needed to do that once. Hats off to Racknerd! @dustinc

  • I'm hesitating if it's worth renewing this idle VPS from Virmach 2016 deal or I should wait for better deals. Honestly, I think the Storage is quite limited, hence it has been idling for 5 years. Please let me know what y'all think. :)

  • Cores and RAM are fine but storage and bandwidth are problem. It can still host a few wordpress websites easily as they don't take much space but bandwidth is a little tight although it may not be a problem for small sites. I wouldn't renew it unless really needed.
