CurlHost Connection timed out
CurlHost was first listed in September 2010 offering $2 64MB OpenVZ VPS. Later in October they started selling Xen VPS, and their last offer, a LowEndBox special, was posted in April this year offering Xen HVM with 512MB for $6.50.
EdgeVPS Sold to ThunderCloudGames
So Travis, a few weeks after selling HostLadder, started up EdgeVPS, who was about to have “a great run with it”, and had hoped to be the next BuyVM. Well, a few months down the track, EdgeVPS was sold to ThunderCloudGames, which is a division of CyberLynk Network, Inc.
MyResellerHost IP address not resolvable
MyResellerHost was first listed on LowEndBox in March this year, although Mark Pammesberger emailed me in December 2010 pretending to be a customer of MyResellerHost. They then had a hard drive crash in August, and finally closing its shop in September.
Pluggr.info Domain expired
Pluggr.info was posted last October as an interesting alternative to low end VPS. Instead of getting a small share of a big iron, you pay $4.50/month for a SheevaPlug dedicated server with a external hard drive attached to it. It did receive some good responses…
TropicHost Under construction
TropicHost should have died back in June when its website shows just a directory index page. Then it got replaced with an “Under Construction” page that says “Prepare to be surprised……. In ~30 days (~08/23/2011)”.
Volt-VPS Hosting Account Suspended
Despite someone claimed VPS is still working, Volt-VPS‘s home page has been showing cPanel’s account suspended message for more than 2 weeks. With its linkage to previous failed VPSRocket, again I am not all that surprised about it ending up in dead pool again.
W2 Servers Website offline
Okay. I know this is loooooong dead, but somehow someone finally put a bullet through that zombie in September. W2 Servers‘ website (which was hosted on Amazon EC2) stopped connecting on 23 September — no one is paying the bill I guess.
