    Similar services to Volumedrive?

    Hello,
    I've never saw any VPS for 15$/month with 4 GB RAM. Does someone know why/how Volumedrive can provide a so high amount of RAM for a so low price? Are there other datacenters with similar price/service level?

    Thanks for replys

    Sounds like they are overselling to me.. 4 GB RAM for $15?

    That's what I'm thinking too but I've found no bad review that a customer couldn't use the purchased RAM (in this case 4 GB).

    They actually just gave me a GB of ram for free. I don't think they are hurting for it.

    Do you can explain it a bit more? Did you got only 1 GB RAM of 4 or did you buy 4 GB RAM and got 5GB (1GB RAM for free)?

    I would have to agree , however there is nothing wrong with overselling if it is properly managed , and you don't punish your clients that actually use 100% of the resources you offer.

    I bought a 1gb vps, and I wanted to upgrade to 2gb. They did the upgrade for free, and I hounded them for the new price. They told me it was no charge. I couldn't complain.

    I am sure they are overselling, but I am able to us the resources I pay for. It performs pretty well, and minecraft runs on it with no problems. A little sluggih at times, but I am paying $5/month.

    We should add to this. Due to demand, we are running a little longer than usual on the new VPS deployment times. Billing does not start until the account is deployed.

    If you run into any issues, please check your UBC variables and if you have any fail-counts, we can increase these.

    When will Dedicated servers be in stock?

    I just bought a package 1 and package 3 vps, is it possible to refund those and get a dedicated box instead?

    Their dedicated wait times are even more insane

    Why don't you try automated or one-click deployment?
    Most hosts achieve this and the price of the setup is reaped many times over in man-hours saved.

    Please consider raising your inode/iptables UBC up by default.
    They aren't easily abused and they are currently ridiculously low.

    Here's my opinion of VolumeDrive: you offer an awesome product at even more awesome prices, but with better advertising and more manpower, you can achieve so much more.

    And where is the money for that going to come from? They can offer awesome prices because there's less overhead costs.

    As mentioned in the numerous threads on WHT. This is in development right now. We are actually holding off on our latest sale due to the completion and automation of a few back-end systems.
