  • I was heading over to buy one to check it out, Then I noticed the low-end ones are out of stock. Pretty fast?
  • All of the EU Mega VPSes sold out, the US Tera is still available, though. We still have a few EU Tera VPSes too.
  • Totally getting a Mega SSD on the 1st of May. Should improve my mood over the exam months! [editline]28th April 2012[/editline] What date do you think they'll be back in stock?
  • Unlikely to return to stock within the next few months I'm afraid. Some of the EU non-SSD ones might come back into stock soon-ish though.
  • Are there any nameservers i could use? or do i have to set up my own? i'm not too experienced with server admin things so any help is awesome.
  • [QUOTE=Bambo.;35797987]Are there any nameservers i could use? or do i have to set up my own? i'm not too experienced with server admin things so any help is awesome.[/QUOTE] Usually when you buy a domain name it gives you name servers that you can use.
  • And if not, there are places like afraid.org which will host nameservers for you for free.
  • [QUOTE=swift and shift;35806671]as long as you're cool with people helping themselves to subdomains of your domain[/QUOTE] Some people don't care about that. There are others that don't do this, but their names aren't coming to mind at the moment.
  • This place looks pretty crap, but it works I think: [url]http://www.freenameservers.co.uk/[/url]
  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;35760247]Unlikely to return to stock within the next few months I'm afraid. Some of the EU non-SSD ones might come back into stock soon-ish though.[/QUOTE] Do you know of how soon? I wish I'd of just bought one when I saw it in stock! Darn but Thanks :)
  • Tera and Peta are in stock, smaller ones won't be coming back into stock unless there's a cancellation. I have some US Nano and US Mega in stock though.
  • Unless there's a cancellation, they're not coming back into stock any time soon, sorry. I warned folks when they went on sale they'd sell fast, and sure enough they did, we sold out several servers worth of those in a few days flat.
  • How many EU non-SSD Exa's are currently available? It doesn't show a number next to it like the others do.
  • None I'm afraid, SSD stuff is totally sold out and has been for a while.
  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;35940127]None I'm afraid, SSD stuff is totally sold out and has been for a while.[/QUOTE] I think he meant non-SSD, unless you were responding to that and I just read that weird
  • [QUOTE=Banana Lord.;35942774]I think he meant non-SSD, unless you were responding to that and I just read that weird[/QUOTE] Gah, you're right, I totally misread. My apologies! We have two non-SSD Exas left.
  • Im looking at a VPS for a small minecraft server ( like 6 slots max ) whit the occasional swap over to maybe source ( again low slots ) and a FTP dump for files i want to backup what kind of Bandwidth would I be looking at? Im thinking most probs Mega (EU) - If so is there any ETA on them?

No ETA on Mega, but we have Tera stock. Got one Mega US, too.

  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;36028870]Downgrades aren't possible I'm afraid. SolusVM allows your disk to be expanded, but not shrunk.[/QUOTE] No shrinking? How can that even be? It's not even a very difficult challenge, I would say, but maybe it's a pay2get feature?
  • [QUOTE=Hexxeh;36028870]Downgrades aren't possible I'm afraid. SolusVM allows your disk to be expanded, but not shrunk.[/QUOTE] Solus can shrink disk space? (resources; says it's updated).
  • [QUOTE=Fizzadar;36039014]Solus can shrink disk space? (resources; says it's updated).[/QUOTE] It certainly didn't used to be able to for Xen backed by LVM. I'll take a look again now see if it's possible. In any case, Mega slices are unlikely to return to stock any time soon. We've got too many Tera slices left that need selling. Edit: So you're right, it's since been added.
