I'm currently using Virpus for my shell hosting, and I have had a OpenVZ VPS VM768 and OpenVZ VPS VM1024 for a couple of months now. So far, I am not pleased. I've had mixed experience with Virpus in the past, but every option I've looked into has been a lot more expensive for what looks like lower specs so I gave them a shot.
Currently, my VM1024 which costs $10 a month is down for the second time in the last 1-2 weeks, and the third or fourth time in the entire time I've had it. I've only seen my VM768 go down maybe once, if that, and it has lower specs and costs only$5 a month.
Every time my VM1024 has gone down I've had to open a support ticket soon after to find out that they're having some sort of difficulties with the node it's on or something, and then it's back up in roughly 24-48 hours of it going down.
A friend of mine had no issues with Virpus, and if I recall ATP use to use them as well. I'm just wondering if maybe I'm missing something, or there is a better host service out there I could use with a similar price plan that won't come out to more than double what I'm already paying. Heck, maybe it's just the VM1024 and someone can recommend a better one, who knows.
I thought it might be the game at first, since I host a newer, more stressing version of the game on the VM1024 than I do on the VM768 but if that were the case it seems like my support tickets wouldn't make it sound like its a problem on their end by talking about the node, or something.
Sorry for the long read, but I wanted to be informative. Hopefully someone can provide me with some useful information, because Virpus is certainly not reliable for it; they're just plain irritating me despite the few positives they do have like quick ticket responses.
