    P4 1.6 ghz/1 GB RAM/40 Gig (900 GB Cogent or 400 Internap) $139/mo and no setup

    No contract needed. www.hostmania.net

    We are currently offering this promotion to the first 100 users or through Midnight next Friday (8/2/01) which ever comes first. This promotion isn't listed anywhere on our site, but it's the first choice during the order process. (click on any "order now" button)

    The special includes a 1U Steel chassis server with a Pentium 4 1.6 ghz, 1 Gig of Ram, and a 40 GB harddrive for $139/mo and no setup fee. You have the option of getting a 3 mb/s capped unmetered Cogent connection or 400 GB of Internap transfer. Ensim 3.1 100 domain license is also included.

    For the next 5 business days, none of these servers will be installed. We are only taking orders the next 5 business days and then all servers will be put online Mon-Wed of the following week. Special only applies to the first 100 customers.

    Internap bandwidth places your web server about 50 ft from direct connectivity to all of the following. UUnet, ATT, Sprint, Genuity, Global Crossing, Cable and Wireless, Qwest, Verio and Digex. This allows us to offer 55ms or better response times and 100% uptime guarantee for all network connectivity.

    Our Cogent gateway is 66.28.28.90 and our Internap gateway is 216.52.184.225. Ping and traceroute from various looking glasses for response times and multiple paths to our datacenter. Our Cogent link hasn't been down in 10 months (we've only had it 10 months).

    EVERY server is behind a firewall for prevention of DOS/DDOS, SYN Flood and a whole list of other hacker attacks. Preventing DOS is in our best interest too. This ensures we are not wasting resources on unwanted traffic types.

    Other services available are server load balancing, SSL acceleration, full blown firewalls, and data backups to name a few. Visit www.hostmania.net.

    Available OSes are Red Hat, FreeBSD, Mandrake, and others on request. We can also provide W2K on request.

    Additional Cogent bandwidth is $30 per mb (unmetered) and Internap bandwidth is $1.25/GB over 400 GB.

    See our Cogent ping times below.
    From 66.28.28.90 to www.verio.com (204.0.52.20) min/avg/max=84ms/84ms/84ms

    Great offer but your sign up order now page does not work and I sent a test support email and have gotten no response.

    I really need to know that you are legit service is there and the data center is maned before I lay down my money.

    If you want to sell a server get back to me. monte@techark.com

    I have the same question. Do you really have tech around 24/7?
    I know this is unmanaged server. But sometimes server do hang up, kernel panic..etc. I would be worry if no one is around to respond calls. I called several times last 2 weeks. No one is answering both sales and tech support. Can you please point out how is tech support being handled and how quickly do you guyz respond?

    I've contacted chavvon about dedicated servers and rackspace.

    I must say, this offer is tempting. Even though we have rackspace elsewhere, and we're happy.

    My question is, how can you afford to give a box and 400GB of Internap for $139/mo? I know the prices of Internap. I know that chavvon runs a business that is primarly data backup. But, the numbers just don't add up.

    Overselling? Probley.. everybody does it. But what's the catch?

    Chavvon did contact me back so that is good. I am still a bit leary of the 24/7 support cause when I need a reboot I need it now.

    I understand where the bandwidth is coming from he explained that in a previous thread a few weeks back.

    I would like to still hear from current customers and how they are finding everything.

    I understand how he works, most of his traffic at night because he runs data backup. Ok great, alot of my traffic is at night too. That really doesn't matter. But.. how the hell does he do it?

    [edit] how the hell does he do it and make money? [/edit]

    This is like someone selling you a Lexus for the price of a KIA.

    24/7 tech support number is 866-HOSTMANIA.

    If anyone has called this number and didn't talk to me or one of my guys, I need to know what day and time you called. Someone should always get that phone, and it they don't, they should return your call in 5 minutes max.

    Everyone is asking how can we do this. We're not just a web hosting provider, we have many other supporting and complimentary lines of business. www.transoptics.com does enterprise level stuff, www.hostmania.net is catering to you all, and www.smithservers.com (can't buy yet) is providing hardware to both companies and others who need cost effective servers.

    My whole plan is to build an ecosphere of companies that are helping each other, and you, out. Plain and simple.

    Regards,

    CS

    Professional?

    Where's the TOS?
    Where's the AUP?
    Where's the Contract?

    This is an open deal for him to screw you over, or for someone to screw him over.

    Professional? I'm not sure about that.

    I'm a bit confused. You see, I really want one of the p4 servers.

    Problem is:
    I sent an email to sales saying this:

    Hi,

    I have one more questoin.

    Do you guys accept paypal? please tell me you do. -- my credit card limit is not high enough to pay for the server.
    If you guys accept paypal then that would be great.

    I would definately get one!

    Let me know please

    thanks.


    You know what he says back to me?

    you can pay via paypal handle chavvon@transoptics.com.

    Regards,

    CS


    ???????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Just send him the money and hope for a server? is this how it works? or what
    maybe i'm missing something here
    I don't quite understand

    Where is the TOS?
    Where is the AUP?

    I figure don't they want my info first? then show me the tos/aup -- and if i AGREE, then send a request for $140 or whatever it is for the p4
    or atleast have me send the amount

    or atleast setup a subscription..

    I'm a bit confused.

    Am I suppose to just send you them the money, and HOPE I get a server?

    I just don't this to turn out like this thread: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...threadid=63196

    Say I did have a credit card with a high limit. Or I had a friend buy for me. Where do I go to order?

    I mean, you say you're offering a p4 1.6ghz, for $139/mo
    In email i was told only 80 left. My question is how are people ordering these? How are you receiving the payment, how are you collecting the info? Are all these people just signing up without even being told about a AUP/TOS ?
    are they sending you money through paypal and thats it?

    Is there a special URL on the website where you have peopel who want the p4's to go to and fill out the form so you can charge their cc? Or what?

    I'm very confused.

    Because I cannot find anything on the site about this p4 special offer.

    Don't get me wrong. I want one. I just don't want to get ripped off.

    Let us know.

    thanks.
