[CLOSED] 21 VPSs Available - October Giveaway 2017

Indeed @try3vps. It's quite obvious when someone is trying to cheat the system, and swap requests aren't approved unless there is a good reason to approve them. Furthermore anyone attempting to exploit such a system can be slapped with a warning or other corrective action.

The intention of making such a request is so obvious.

I would be much disappointed if such requests could be accepted. That means users who game the system will always get the best VPSes, and users who strictly follow the rules will always be losers.

Yes, makes a lot of sense that it'll be quite obvious.  No body would really want to game the system like that, but there's always that one person that will try...

@Ignis just curious, but what makes it a good reason for a swap request anyway? Not saying I need a swap (I want to keep VPS 6 anyway and drop VPS 18 so it already worked in my favor), but there's nothing on rules around swaping VPS after the change thing came out.
Thank you HostUS for VPS 16!

I guess there is a common sense logic attached also to the new policy of the second VPS not being on the same high spec level as the first VPS?  Like for me unless one is lucky and during the second giveaway there are some high spec servers available, one's primary and first VPS will always default to the one with the greater specs, and the second VPS will be the one with lesser specs.  It doesn't really need to be defined as it used to be in the past because of the new second VPS policy?

So let's say a member has one VPS of higher specs than the second one he applies for, then the second one will be the second VPS.  However if he has a lower spec VPS and successfully applies for a second higher spec VPS, then the second VPS will become the primary VPS?  Like automatically by default?

I think @deanhills While ago this primary vps - secondary vps was just a number. But now there aren't too many high end servers to spare it should be different.

Even in my case I had VPS27 as my primary and VPS18 as my secondary. Then the VPS27 was terminated by sponsor so VPS18 has become my primary since it's the only server I have. But technically its still my secondary server since it's the smaller vps I have had.

There's still quite a bit of VPSs still open to be claimed. VPS 14 looks good and I'd like to replace my second container with it, but I already won something very nice this giveaway, so I can't be greedy. Besides, someone else here must want to grab it to replace their second container and probably will beat my score.

I will go for vps 14. I don't have anyone now because I had too much work and couldn't be active in the forum. Now I have more time so let's go for one.
Thanks FreeVPS.us and Hostigation for VPS 18

I've applied for VPS 15.  I'm intrigued by the HostUS Charlotte, North Carolina Location.  I checked the HostUS VPS looking glass and my ISP found their North Carolina IP really fast, notwithstanding being situated so far from it, much faster than Dallas, Texas.  What makes it also interesting is that previously the default location on their VPS Website was Dallas, Texas, and now it is Charlotte, North Carolina.  So maybe they've invested in new servers with even greater specs than the Dallas, Texas location - or that is what I'm hoping for and want to check out.  I'm also a great HostUS fan - the VPSs may not come with control panels, but once set up by the Admin I've never missed a control panel (yet) because there has never been a need to have one.  HostUS is just that good for me VPS wise.

Well try it out and see what happens!  From my memory, they moved into the Digital Reality Datacenter there right?  Maybe the bandwidth providers there are really good, it's worth a try, it really depends on your ISPs network mix and their's.  I get better ping to Hostigation (now known as AnyNode) at 74ms rather than to HostUS's Charlotte location, which is at 86ms.  If reinstallations are handled by the staff here, I really don't have a use for a control panel.  I can reboot from the container itself anyway so I can do without one like what I'll be doing with VPS 16. HostUS is a great provider, the servers are nice and fast, but they do set everything to low priority so do expect limits to be placed when the node is on high load.
Thank you HostUS for VPS 16!
