    I just order this server: Versaweb - Order Page
    Quarterly plan for now and with 240GB SSD.
    Still on 16GB ram, I think that's enough for me now.

    nice... yeah from your previous stats you showed, you weren't using anywhere near 32GB of memory, so 16GB should be fine

    But I'm little bit worried now, just read on their website that they just null route ddos attack IP.
    Not actually protect like SYS or OVH :(

    Guess you'll have to wait and see how it fairs for your member/visitor experience for Asian traffic :)

    It's reason why most my servers and VPSes are LA west coast USA types :D

    There's quite a few more west coast USA web hosts on my short list which I use for consult client recommendations depending on their needs but probably all out of your budget with minimum US$150-450/month ranges heh. Los Angeles is generally more expensive for web hosting regardless compared to mid and east coast USA.

    So I got now 4 available IP's.
    So to avoid problems I need to declare each IP on each domain vhost right?
    And even my virtual vhost I need to declare a dedicated IP?

    not sure I understand, you'd want to add all 4 ips to your server if they haven't already been added and it's really up to you how you want to use them, a dedicated ip for some Nginx vhosts with listen dedicatedip:80 or a shared ip with just listen 80.

    Ok, I will declare each IP per vhost including virtual.conf.
    But for now, VNC setup didn't work on Versaweb server :(
    And there's no way I can reload the OS like SYS :(
    Can't boot the server, Ouch.

    VNC worked for me but I also tried their IPMI KVM console to load centos 6.5 netinstall iso from my pc install method too - much slower taking 2+ hrs but still worked. Slow part is netinstall.iso upload.

    You need to log into https://noc.versaweb.com/client/ to access the Device Manager > View Devices and click your server device id number. You can launch KVM console from there which will prompt you to download a *.jnlp file you need to run

    viewwevice_00.png

    KVM console file will give warning and untrusted you need to accept and continue

    kvmconsole_00.png
    kvmconsole_01.png

    The default java KVM Console first screen is the familiar CentOS login prompt, from here you can log into your server and do all your SSH stuff like you normally would if you were blocked from normal SSH access.

    You need to click Virtual Media menu and select Virtual storage > Device 1 and from drop down menu select ISO file, then click open image and browse and select the CentOS-6.5-x86_64-netinstall.iso iso image file. Then click Plug in to mount the iso file to the server and hit OK. Then just reboot your server. You can log into prompt and do a reboot via command line and watch console screen boot up to load the netinstall.so just like for Netinstall guide at RamNode - CentOS 7.0 Netinstall Guide for RamNode CKVM VPS server | Centmin Mod Community

    For netinstall I used these mirrors:
    Code:
    http://centos.mirror.ndchost.com/6.5/os/x86_64/
    http://centos.mirror.ndchost.com/7/os/x86_64/
    The iso you upload to KVM console is the netinstall.iso which is 243MB versus minimal.iso at 398MB - CentOS-6.5-x86_64-netinstall.iso

    launched IPMI netinstall you want to grab your server's existing ip settings from ifconfig -a and /etc/sysconfig/network and /etc/resolv.conf for your records as you'd need them later

    netinstall like as described at RamNode - CentOS 7.0 Netinstall Guide for RamNode CKVM VPS server | Centmin Mod Community needs network TCP settings.

    double check your gateway ip via ifconfig eth0 Mask reported ip address

    But on that way I need to upload my own ISO.
    And also I need to download it to my PC first, it will take hours :(

    yeah it will that's the price of cheaper dedicated, no full IPMI access with web login to load a url based ISO file.

    yeah they don't :(

    FYI, you get 1 free OS reload per month. Then additional is US$25 per reload if you need quicker OS reloads that they can do for you too.

    one more thing, why do reinstall ? their provided OS is barebones and clean so unless you want to repartition, you can always use the default provided OS. But learning how to use IPMI java KVM console on emoty server is worth the experience anyway :D

    My bad, I thought it was full centos setup.
    I tried to re-install because I want minimal setup.
