Welcome!
 
Mind sharing a few screenshot of your in-house built panel? What other features do you in it except the port forwarding?

Also, port forwarding isn't working, there is no internal IP to choose.

Also also, main IP in the email is blank. (Just to mention it, since you can find it in the webinterface too.)

Also also also, HTML5 Console isn't working.

And for those who wanna know:

Re: Hostibox - NAT VPS from $3.00 per year

Hello,

We are performing integration of the NAT control panel with new locations and it is under maintenance at this time.

Unlimited ports: First come, first serve, as you told.

Unlimited bandwidth: over 4TB, the VPS is not suspended. We just need to put a bandwidth limit to get usage statistics, but we already removed automatic suspension when bandwidth is over.

Don't bother with Hostibox

The whole support experience makes me feel pathetic.
I could guess the young man behind the company might feel the same.
That I wonder why they started such low-cost packages in the first place.

Hi,

For the past 24 hours their West Virginia node is dead. I think their company homepage runs on the node too..no longer accessible as well as the looking glass. Those domain names in the first few hours still return IPs but not now.

The client portal for billing and tech support (not SolusVM) runs on different machine and survives.

Apparently my OpenVZ VPS is down for 24 hours too. Support acknowledged the issue and said working with their upstream provider ASAP. No updates since then. It's been down more than 24 hours now.

I joined one of the packages in OP two weeks ago as one of my application outgrows 128MB RAM (peak spikes only). My original bad experience was actually with initial setup. But then I don't have to wait for long, this outage happens and dead silence follows.

Btw, do you still have a VPS with Hostibox in the West Virginia data centre?

I do, it's down, and so is the website.
Well, it's the wordpress default page now, so not really down anymore..

Re: Hostibox - NAT VPS from $3.00 per year

I still find none of the following domains resolved to a IPv4:

manager.hostibox.com
www.hostibox.com
vps.hostibox.com

My DNS cache happens to have an expired IPv4 for manager.hostibox.com (the client portal). As of now, you could still get in.

But none of the other two as well as my VPS is up. I think the WV node is still down.

Where did you see the default wordpress page?

Re: Hostibox - NAT VPS from $3.00 per year

Your DNS is broken then: https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?ac … n=toolpage

Edit: nvm, I can't resolve it too (locally). maybe because his nameservers are ns16/17.hostibox.com, and they went down too.

Re: Hostibox - NAT VPS from $3.00 per year

The servers' status was same as 48 hours ago:

server status

The WV node is still down.

I wish I could get back my data. Otherwise I would lose a few hours editing.

Re: Hostibox - NAT VPS from $3.00 per year

I lost a few hours of editing...between backup's.

It's a simple hobby blog. But still data loss.

He also seems to run OpenVZ inside a KVM.
