    Just saw that UltraVPS (the VPS arm of Versaweb) is offering 50% off their annual VPS prices - use coupon 'FALL15'.

    I just pulled the trigger on a 4gb/4core machine for $125 for a year and will be shifting some sites there later today. That's insanely cheap for a KVM VPS... At Linode, it's $40 a month for this same box.

    Will be very curious to see if the SSD speeds hold up.

    Anyway, thought you all would appreciate the heads up on what appears to be a fantastic price. @eva2000 you should get an affiliate link for them... I searched but couldn't find one.

    @jeffwidman thanks for the heads up.. IIRC they use to be OpenVZ only, so guess they switched to KVM. Unfortunately, tried signing up numerous times - and they keep saying my phone number is invalid format heh

    let us know how it faIrs :)

    I am using them now for someone on XenForo Community with 5 XF Forum small and medium size :).
    VPS-6, paid for 1 year with 50% off.. Nothing can be cheaper.
    Some Info:

    and for some unknown reason (I didn't dig in much further as I don't have much time), their CentOS 7 Image doesn't work well with centminod 08 stable.
    MariaDB doesn't installed.

    lucky you.. 3.0Ghz cpus suggests possibly using Intel Xeon E5-1660 8 cpus and 16 cpu thread servers too :)

    I'm wondering how they compare to the likes of DO, RN, and Linode?

    Mine working great as well. However, note that prices have gone up significantly and they no longer offer the 50% off lifetime plan.

    To follow up here, I had a network issue with my UltraVPS node: Cannot ping remote server; how can I debug local networking misconfiguration vs my IP is blocked? - Server Fault

    Their support person has been rather useless--clearly not emails and saying things like 'the remote server must have blocked your IP' when my previous email said `traceroute` was showing the problem existed on the localhost before it even got to an external network. I suspect in this case, the underlying problem actually resides with SolusVM since it still uses the deprecated NETMASK setting in its default network config setup rather than the newer PREFIX setting, so I doubt it's their fault. However, I was annoyed that the first-tier support person either was in such a hurry that they didn't read my email, or didn't understand basic network debugging.

    I'm still very happy with what I've got--$125 annually for a 4gb/4core KVM based node is a very good price, just know that if you're not comfortable debugging your own stuff with the help of the folks on ServerFault, then you should probably look elsewhere.

    Also, they migrated their low cost offerings to a new brand that's even cheaper: https://www.vpeasy.com/index.php

    I suspect they rolled it out as new brand so that existing ultravps customers don't find it and say "hey, can I get this new cheaper pricing". It's even cheaper--8core/8gb KVM node is $88 a year which is totally nuts when Linode is charging $80 a year for a similar box. Again, just don't expect much in the way of support.

    Yeah pretty much same as when i was with VersaWeb for dedicated server for 12+ months - it's truly unmanaged even if some of the issues are at their end i.e. for me it was alot of IPMI connectivity issues

    great prices and connectivity for West Coast USA but support you're on your own
    Yeah saw that as well on WHT forums. I think it's because they have alot of server hardware available so good to make use of it :)

    That's why I will not risk purchasing even if it's so cheap :D.
