This post is out of date, please see our site (http://afterburst.com) for details; PM me for the 5% Facepunch discount :)
Can't seem to load the ordering page currently
Having the same problem, most of your pages are timing out.
I suppose a 30% discount for existing clients is too much too hope for? When I signed up a good while back, I only found out about the 30% for life discount a week later.
Why the rebrand? I honestly liked the old site + name better.
Not that there is anything wrong with afterburst, it's just before it felt more unique and personal.
Edit: Sorry, I'm dumb - just read the OP again. That really sucks dude.
How long until this offer ends? I'm thinking about getting a vps when my shared ends somewhere December/January.
God damnit I ordered my VPS just before this sale came on.
These guys are great - used to have them as my VPS host. Had financial problems at one point (absolutely no money) and they extended the billing period by a few days for me. Would recommend these guys if you need a VPS for anything.
Previously you could submit a sales ticket and request to have your promo code change to whatever is the current one (assuming it's better than your previous one). It doesn't stack it just changes it, so if you previously had a 20% off lifetime promo and a 30% one was release you could ask to be updated to the 30% one, not 20% + 30% for 50% off.
Used to be with Fanatical for a while, great hosts - would always let you know of updates/problems on their end.
Would recommend them to anyone. :)
How good are you guys at giving a detailed incident report after downtime or something like a security breach happens? This is pretty important for me.
Anyway, I setup a node over there, seems fast so far.
I'm not super familiar with OpenVZ, how come you had to reboot my VPS to enable the VPN/rDNS stuff? I don't mind I'm just curious. Thanks for the fast response on that ticket by the way.
Signed up for a huge node, you guys manage to have better specs etc than linode (the main one that made me switch was storage space, linode are super stingy with it) and you are $10 per month cheaper. Congrats!
I would like to report back now I have my vps up and running.
Migration from linode was easy enough as I know what I am doing.
Server was set up fast and info emailed promptly.
The server is speedy, everything in terms of spec is as advertised, amount of available distros is good (using debian 6 64bit for the interested).
The control panel they use is great, not as powerful as linode's in terms of options but a lot easier to use and less ugly.
Actual performance difference on my sites is negligible which is great considering how well everything ran on linode. Time to first byte is actually lower despite the increased distance (I am in the UK so germany is further than london) which shows the server has some grunt.
So really no reason to go to linode when you can go to these guys :D
shit dude, your site is wicked sick. really nice.
Since my last message I acquired a Huge node as well to host my development work. I have cancelled my two servers from VPS6 and will eventually cancel my Linode.
I tested the performance of the box and I'm getting better numbers than Linode. About 1.0MB/s more for the hard drive, better CPU benchmarks, better network speed. Keep this up!
Right now I'm working with support to get L2TP IPSEC working as there seems to be some missing kernel modules (either that or I'm doing really wrong).
Curious, how many employees are part of this?
Holy shit Fanatical is AWESOME!
Ordered a huge, I needed a system for zenoss - might as well support these guys since I think they're great and I've been following them around for ages now.
Does anyone know if it is possible to host an ArmA 2 server on one of these VPS's?
well it runs on linux so of course
I had a package with you guys for a few months at the end of last year\start of this year. I didn't end up using it much so I dropped it, but with this kind of sale maybe I'll sign up again. I had a pretty big gripe with the pings though, 300ms+ makes it pretty painful to do anything with ssh. I guess that's just australia for you
