    running rogue services on Client's account on Provider's systems, or anything that might attract or precede such activities. Rogue services, as defined here, means any service that is not included as a feature on Provider's advertised list of account features at the time. This includes, but is not limited to, IRC bots, IRC clients, IRC daemons, ICQ clients, ICQ servers, unauthorized proxies of any kind, or any other service running on a TCP/IP port that Provider did not give explicit written authorization for use.
    Does that apply to VPSes or is that for web hosting only?
    What's your policy on personal IRC use? (one connection, freenode)

    You're welcome to do a traceroute or ping to www.simplywebhosting.com . That is one of our corporate sites and it sits on the same network as all customer servers. Just keep in mind that the result you get is only from *your* location. We don't control the quality of *your* Internet access. If you get an unexpected result, though, let us know and we'll look into it.

    We do not provide test download links. We don't see a need to waste that bandwidth. Since we do pay for our bandwidth, we prefer to keep that for paying customers. Additionally, the hwVPS use unmetered (but capped) bandwidth. That will be your maximum download speed. We're currently using about 10% of our currently turned on and available bandwidth, so there is plenty to go around. In fact, there is more than 10 times the limit on our largest plan in currently unused bandwidth. We upgrade our network bandwidth when it reaches 60% of utilization to ensure we never run short and customers never experience network slowdowns. You're welcome to purchase an account and, if you aren't happy, get a refund within your first 90 days of service. That should be plenty of time to run a download test.

    CPU is dual quad core Xeon X5450 running at 3.0GHz. What matters more is your allocation on those processors since we don't allow a single VPS to utilize all available CPU power. This information is on our web site.

    Our systems employ a hybrid storage system. We provide fast storage on 15K RPM SAS RAID10 (8 disks) for I/O intensive workloads and big storage on 7.2K RPM Enterprise SATA RAID6 (7 disks) for static file storage. For swap, there is a separate 15K RPM SAS RAID1 container on disks separate from the regular storage areas. The nodes themselves use yet another different 15K RPM SAS RAID1 on separate disks from all customer used storage for storing OS template data and configuration information. All of this information is on our web site.

    Each node has 32GB of RAM. This isn't relevant since you only get access to your dedicated slice of RAM and nothing more. These plans are run on Xen and designed around the concept of non-oversubscription of RAM.

    The number of VPS we place on each node is entirely dependent on real time performance data that we collect and graph continously (CPU, RAM, network, system load, etc.). This data is reviewed several times daily. There is no fixed number of VPS we will place on a node. We do not place more VPS on the node if our performance monitoring shows it would cause performance problems. The maximum is limited by RAM since that resource is not oversubscribed. Furthermore, this promotion is only available until our nodes reach 50% capacity and then after that new orders will pay regular pricing, slowing the rate at which new VPS are added so we can go out and buy more nodes.

    If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

    If you plan to run services that are outside the typical web/email/ssh/ftp services, we do require that you email support and get approval before running the service. We've never withheld approval for reasonable requests. We just want to know what our customers are doing with their VPS.

    Our policy on IRC is that you should run it from your home or office computer and not on our servers. We don't want to be shown as the originating IP on your IRC sessions. We'd just really rather that the FBI/DHS/ATF/Interpol/RIAA/MPAA (name your agency of choice) go knocking on your door and not ours. IRC is frequently associated with DOS attacks, dDOS attacks, kiddie porn, and other illegal file sharing. If you don't fall into those categories, then it is our opinion that you have no reason to run IRC on anything other than your own computer. If you think you should be an exception to this, you're welcome to explain your situation. In 12 years doing hosting, I've never seen a good reason, but I'm always open to new ideas.

    No, the bandwidth is not dedicated. If you want to pay our costs ($20 to $85 per Mbit/sec per month, depending on source), then we can get you dedicated bandwidth.

    Please see my previous post on this thread for a test IP.

    We do not allow personal proxy servers on our network, in general. They are too often used in illegal file downloads, kiddie porn viewing, click fraud schemes, and circumventing content filtering at the end-user's physical location.

    I'll look into Gentoo Linux 2008 64 bit. Your is the first request we've had for that Linux distribution. It is not currently available, but could be if we get enough demand and it looks reasonably similar to other Linux distributions we do support.

    The CPUs are allocated as virtual CPUs. Each virtual CPU has equal priority on the real CPUs, but larger hwVPS have more virtual CPUs than smaller hwVPS. Also, the smallest hwVPS (the Starter hwVPS 2009) is capped at 50% of a single real CPU core to help keep the cost of that plan as low as possible. There are no priorities applied, however, so they all share the same priority level. So, in some ways it is equal share because all running processes have the same priority applied, but an hwVPS with four virtual CPUs will definitely be able to get more work done than an hwVPS with only virtual CPU. The idea here is "fair share" based on the size of the plan. If it were completely equal, it wouldn't be fair to those purchasing larger hwVPS plans.

    Why not Fedora 11 64bit

    Since xen-shell is available to user, why not make xen-tools available as well so that users can rebuild OS themselves? This way why bother create OS template.

    Fedora is very desktop oriented, has a very short development cycle, and provides no upgrade path. Every Fedora installation is orphaned permanently 6 months after the release date. Additionally, it is not uncommon for Fedora to be stuck with show-stopper bugs and security flaws that are only fixed in later releases. Since they provide no upgrade path, that's not a good place to be as a customer or a hosting provider.

    Until we see the Fedora project shape up and fix those major shortcomings, it won't be offered.

    We have chosen not to offer xen-tools for several good reasons. First, out of all the OS we offer, it only supports Debian. Second, we administratively decided that allowing customers to reimage their own hwVPS presented too great a liability in the cases of fraudulent or criminal activity. Lastly, it simply doesn't offer enough flexibility to setup an hwVPS the way we do it with three different sources for storage (fast, big, and swap).

    I had not examined Gentoo before today, but I generally like what I saw. I took a look around their web site and I think their philosophy has some merit. It is completely self-upgradeable with each new release, much like FreeBSD. It uses familiar Linux tools like grub and seems to support the typical sysinit boot scripts. It has a good pool of mirror sites and a vibrant community.

    There was one concern I had, though. Their release engineering seems quite haphazard. They're deprecating all the 2008.0 Releases, but the only thing to replace them is "current" which is bleeding edge development. This doesn't bode well for a server environment where we're trying to provide a stable and reliable service that we have to support indefinitely. It's almost like they tried to follow the same release engineering methodology as FreeBSD and then just decided all of sudden to just throw that out the window and let the developers run wild.

    Maybe my perceptions are incomplete because this is my first look at Gentoo.

    What about Gentoo is attractive to you?

    I've only used Gentoo a couple of times, but I can say their portage system (apt/ports tree/yum/etc equivalent) rocks.

    Have you kept pace with their development work after July 2008 (last year)? That's when they had their last release and I'm curious what their stability is like when sticking with their "current" release scheme that seems to be their new normal method for updating.

    Just at a glance it looks like something serious might have been hampering any new development on the project. They cancelled the 2008.1 release, but I couldn't find any reasons for it.

    Gentoo indeed looks interesting. Personally, I like what they're trying to do. When deciding what OS Advantagecom will support for its clients, though, I have to carefully think about where things will be in a few years time. Gentoo looks like it might have lost vital planning and direction last year. That can be fatal for a Linux distribution.

    Can you point me to anything on their forums or web site where they address these types of concerns?

    I really want to say yes, but I'm leaning towards no unless there is something out there to address my concerns about the future of that distribution.

    For now we're going to say no to Gentoo. I'll keep my eye on it, though, and if we get more demand for it or I see some updated release engineering information we'll reconsider it as an available OS.

    I agree that the ISO images are of limited importance. However, having an orderly release schedule and method is an important part of keeping software developers away from their natural tendency towards chaos. This is good for a server environment.

    Regarding your policy about non-standard apps running, do you normally allow Shoutcast streaming radio to be run from the VPSes?

    (I also assume that the VPSes are built with a sufficient app base to run normal blogging software like Wordpress and the like.)

    Hi, even though we can only change our OS once per month what about the ability to re-install (reload) the same OS on the VDS/VPS? Do we need ticket for that or can we do it ourselves anytime we want using VDS panel?

    I doubt they would allow it, as the rationale behind this was to keep audit trail in case of fraudulent / criminal activities.

    But this is kind of contradictory to desire of have a VPS, as most customer would like a OS level flexibility. I have watched the offering forum for some time, I'd say this is most restrictive policy among all the VPS providers. most others just say what's not allowed, while this one simply give a short whitelist.

    This is not true. Fedora/CentOS/RedHat all have desktop versions (all depending on focus of selecting packages). In addition, it's entirely possible to upgrade between Fodora releases without re-installing from scratch. And a user can upgrade Fedora to next release (say from 10->11, or 11->12 when it becomes available), from command line, without having the need to open a ticket with you. Assume it's Xen based VPS and can have its own kernel.

    Fedora can take advantage of latest development and latest libraries. It indeed posts some risk of reliability, while others who do not limit themselves in web hosting business would like to enjoy new features.

    Shoutcast is fine and doesn't require approval.

    Since we have no way of knowing ahead of time what purpose the hwVPS will be used for, we install it in such a way that yum, apt-get, or ports are completely functional and run on a minimal install of the OS. You're welcome to install whatever software you want or need that isn't against our terms of service. For instance, for an hwVPS with CentOS, you'd want to do a 'yum install' of apache, mysql, php, and any other requisite software. Yum takes care of the hard part. You'd then install Wordpress. If you experience any trouble, our support team is there to help you learn how to do it. If you need us to do it for you, we have a Managed hwVPS option available.

    Additional IP addresses are between $3.50/month per IP for the Starter hwVPS and $1.30/month per IP for the Expert hwVPS.

    If you order after the 30th, our regular prices are listed on our web site. The Starter hwVPS regular price is $30/month and it goes up from there.

    That said, we're working to fill these nodes, so we'll undoubtedly be back on the offers section every week until they are full. We may not be offering deals quite this good later on, though.

    Changing to a different OS is limited to once per month, but reimaging your hwVPS to the same OS in a fresh state can be done as often as you need, within reason. We might object if you're doing it several times a day all month long. It does require a support ticket to reimage your hwVPS. We do not allow customers to reimage their own VPS for security and technical support reasons.

Assume it's Xen based VPS and can have its own kernel.

    Fedora can take advantage of latest development and latest libraries. It indeed posts some risk of reliability, while others who do not limit themselves in web hosting business would like to enjoy new features.



    Understood that you come from administrative perspective, but not sure how this policy would please most of customers.
    Your points are well taken about Fedora. I'll examine it again in the coming week. The ability to upgrade must have come about sometime after Fedora 5.

    CPanel is not included, but is available as a paid option at $30/month and a $30 setup.

    We offer BlueOnyx as a free control panel option that can be preinstalled at no charge if selected during the order process.

    Out of curiosity, if I were to order now, what sort of turn-around time would I be looking at?

    It depends on what you ordered. What plan and what OS would you order?

    Actually, if someone is trying to avoid exposing themselves directly to law enforcement, you would do something like the following:


    Root a server/computer (Every country that has internet access has extensive amounts of zombie machines)
    Use a proxy or TOR


    Not looking for a host that allows IRC....


    There is nothing wrong with IRC. If you're going to get DDoS'd, you're going to get it regardless if you're running an IRCd, or IRC client on a server.

    Most likely, an Enhanced hwVPS with CentOS.

    Although the above linked post is a bit disconcerting. No yum or other package management system with the CentOS VPSes?

    CentOS is 1 business day setup. So if you ordered right now, you'd be setup by the end of the day on Monday (Pacific time, GMT -7:00).

    If you ordered Monday, you'd be setup sometime before the end of Tuesday.

    That said, we're going to be setting up a bunch of these tomorrow, so it could be sooner.

    We're working through the automation of setups, so they are getting faster.

    Regarding your concern about yum, please ignore that troll. I don't know what rock he crawled out from under. The post he references is about a completely different line of services based on Virtuozzo. If a Virtuozzo VPS is provisioned by HSPC (now Parallels Business Automation), yum is not installed or supported. Using yum on a Virtuozzo VPS provisioned by HSPC can break the control panel functions in HSPC. The hwVPS offered on this thread are based on Xen and yum is installed and completely functional on Linux distributions that use it. No worries.
