    Greetings, flyah! Yes, we allow Shoutcast. The LAUNCH40 promotional code was set to end last week, however, we've extended it one more week, so it's valid through this coming Sunday (Oct 4th).

    Thanks!

    Thanks... I'll make sure that gets fixed. If you come up with any other typos, please email them in.

    Correct. 32 Bit stuff is actually starting to become outdated. Microsoft's next OS release will only be in 64 bit. A good majority of systems can now support 64 bit OSs, and there's quite a few scripts/programs that now operate just as well, if not better on 64 bit systems.

    Thanks!

    Are you talking about Windows 7? If so, they have a 64 and a 32 edition on the same disk from what I've read.

    No, the next major Windows OS that Microsoft releases will only be in 64 bit. I'm talking about the one after Windows 7.

    On Linux, VPN functionality (We recommend OpenVPN, BTW) works with our Virtuozzo and our DDS based systems. On Windows, VPN only works on our DDS based systems.

    This is the last week for the LAUNCH40 and PROMO20 coupons... new special/ad going up on Sunday!

    Los Angeles DDS is now availale, so the free HD upgrade is now only available on annual payment cycles (this is in addition to the free RAM doubling on annual payments).

    Thanks!

    I ordered and paid the fee. The members area shows this "ATTENTION:All subscriptions were blocked. Please contact your vendor.". What does this mean? Also I havent got a verification of the payment made from your system though I have a completed paypal transaction (Unique Transaction ID #75G612531F6530107)

    They manually got me activated. Sad thing is I got my vps for using it with WHM's new Windows panel but realised later it works with Windows 2008, and not 2003. Since theres no refund policy Ill just have to run it out of its month.

    PS - You should chat with them on live support during regular working support hours. Their support is good.

    Yeah realised it was manual activation an email later. Support has been great so far. Why don't you use plesk instead? VPS runs great except for one hiccup on my behalf. I went with a vps @ Dallas, TX as I get the best pings and speed from Australia.
