Thread: Swvps Very Bad

    Funyoo,
    I just did the smaller package at VPSLAND...so far it is very fast and without any problems. I'll let you know how it goes....They say they have protection against DDOS (which SWVPS may not have).

    I have the same problems with swvps...
    I think alot of the lower cost vps's will be the same way... tryed couple years back using linux vps on another provider and had same problems, if your willing to shell out the extra $$, probably best too try godaddy, I'm using them for regular hosting, and there have good reputation

    Bill,

    sorry you are wrong, forget this statement from vpsland, normaly its not possible for ISP's to alive a big DDOS, DDOS (Distributed Denial of Service) does reflect on the backbone router first. Second there are 2 kind of DDOS internal and external.
    If internal, your subnet (example isp with 8192 IP adresses) /19 will be unavailable shortly (servers, pc's are hacked), if an external DDOS, its depending which config on the backbone router exists.
    low cost isp uses most linux boxes (3 secs to down) ciscos have the ability to block and route unwanted traffic, not only DDOS! to an virtual interface (black hole routing=dev0) if the router ist strong enough, there are no effects behind for servers, customer acces router and so on, All OSI Layer 3 (IP) have the DDOS problem, OSI Layer 2 (MAC) like Switches, Bridges, Gateways have no problem with DDOS, they have no knowlege from the protocol IP.

    example external: your router have a (external) fastethernet interface (100mbit) to the internet, a DDOS with 100mbit is fired up to your router, router cpu goes up till 100%, memory is full in use (paket caching) and will be unavailable till the DDOS is ended.
    example internal: same as external but reflects the internal interface of the router and all servers and so on

    conclusio: a backbone router have normally minimum two interfaces, 1 internal and 1 external, like your dsl router (1 dsl external interface, 1 internal ethernet interface) large routers have 20-100 interfaces, thats the reason why configuring theese router is very difficult, network engineers are needed...

    Bill,

    sorry i'm a fair person, i'm an real registered isp too, therefore i give no recommondations.

    The problem is, low prices needs to hosting more vps then the hardware can. = overbooking
    Thats the market, I've the same problem, i would give my customers full service and full featured vps without overbooking the hardware, but no one pays this kind of vps...

    so test, test, test, if the current vps is slow, change the vps.

    use MS$ windows 2003 server its much more stable then virtualization with data containers

    the best for metatrader:
    - host (isp) with windows 2003 or 2008 server and guest (you) windows 2003 or 2008 server os
    2nd best:
    - host (isp) with vmware server and guest (you) windows 2003 or 2008 server os
    3rd, but needs top hardware and less vps guests:
    - host (isp) with windows 2003 or 2008 server and guest (you) windows xp
    4th, but needs top hardware and less vps guests:
    - host (isp) with vmware server and guest (you) windows xp

    dont use linux hosts with wine (windows emulation) as host and windows (any guest) os (operating system)

    personal i prefer a complete ms$ virtualization solution (best and 2nd best) but cost always a full windows server or xp license = costs: ~ 100-500USD per guest vps - i you would have a really stable vps solution for live trading take the best what you can get! its your money which you loose with an unstable solution! second, take a vps, where the company is a real registered isp not a sub-isp, a customer from a real isp!
    - check the vps company ip from there website at arin.net (us isps)
    - for europeans at ripe.net (eu isps)
    - for asia/pacific at apnic.net ( japan, thai, australia, nzd, laos, ...)
    - where is your broker located? example alpari uk, search for an vps in the eu region, the transfertime is normally under 30ms, if you live in australia, search for an vps in australia, you live in the us, try vps in the us - dont use: you live in euope and have your vps in australia ~ 150-500 ms (latency) transfertime

    hope that helps
