    Hi all,
    I'm getting ready to get myself a vps. However, I had thought about BHSVPS - and have been to their site, and studied up on their service. I particularly like the SEO tools that they have included - but when I read up on vps companies on here some people rave about them while others say things like 'scam' etc. To be quite honest I can't seem to make up my mind because of all the contradictory views that are flying around. So can someone recommend a decent vps preferably with SEO tools included for one very confused noob :)

    Cheers.

    You'll always find conflicting opinions on VPS' with 'Pre-installed' tools (read; pirate most of the time) if they're illegal copies then you'll have masses of problems.

    Stick with one of the good recommended services and use your own software.

    Hostamus are great, as are UltraVPSBox in my experience.

    As Jas says - they are mostly a scam.
    Some say they are working within the rules by having more "chairs per license" of the many I look at - they are all in fact breaking TaC.
    This site is full of people moaning that a scam VPS with tools site has "gone dark" with their money - or the tools don't work very well
    If Nuke, Scrapebox, some proxies and a keyword and rank checker are bundles on a VPS for under $150 a month - be very suspicious.

    There those that support them here. Mainly the ownders of these scamsw and I suspect their "sock puppet" accounts


    Also - most of the software they are scamming is DNS -

    As pofecker says...

    Nearly all the tools on these scam sites are on DNS list - so even asking for them to be shared or access to pirated copies of them here could get you a permanent ban

    wtf are you talking about? BHSVPS is the best service for vps with pre-installed LEGIT LICENSE seo tools. All their licenses are legit and are never banned (except a recent scrapebox).

    I have worked with them for 7 months and everything worked like a charm. I moved back because being a software developer i felt bad for other guys whose softwares are being shared without approval but they are not scams.

    @OP : Don't listen to these numbnuts. BHSVPS is a great service. Try the cheapest service and if you don't like it cancel it. But all there softwares are licensed and they have the best support.

    @jamesvick: No, you're wrong. I was a BHSVPS user.

    Besides ScrapeBox, don't forget XRumer. And GSA SER that appears for about a week and then gone for good. The license is under Sven (the author of the software). Also The Best Spinner that keeps asking for credentials every so often. And a ton of other problems.

    Please realize that even if they are legit licenses, software developers DON't ALLOW running the same program across many users in the same machine. I bet some of them don't check for specific users in the same machine, i.e. they only check installation per PC, not how many users in the same PC.

    That's why in BHSVPS you only get one account and an interface to run the apps. This is unlike real VPS of which you run your own installation of Windows.

    BHSVPS is good when they stay under the radar. They can bypass license checking but due to a problem in BHW here which resulted in both VPS providers getting banned, SB and other software owners decide to tighten license checking even more. And that's when BHSVPS started to go down the hill.

    Thanks all that has shed some light upon this dark and murky side of things. I have taken note, and listened to all - I'll be checking out some of the vps services that have been mentioned. Furthermore I do own my own legit tools = scrapebox and next week GSA SER which I'll be using on a vps eventually. So thank once more for the input, much appreciated.

    Minus repped for bullshitting

    BONG - WRONG

    Just because you've got away with it for 7 months - doesn't make it not a scam. They hide the stolen Nuke licences from the main sales page with this "Click to View Full List"... this isn't fooling anyone.

    SEnuke Xcr - "This title is not shown on the pricing page but is included"

    Wonder why they do it like that?

    The cheapest legit seat for a SENukeCR license - even if you BREAK the reselling rules is well over $50

    And that's just for Nuke - that's supposing the VPS and all the other tools are free!


    Sharing one seat between separate people on a "pay per seat" basis is not allowed by the Nuke terms and conditions. A normal or outsourcer license is only allowed to be used by the owner of the license or legitimate outsourcers - there is no "paid sub licensing" allowed

    Here's a reply I got when I considered becoming an affiliate for Nuke a few months ago. I asked what the point was of getting involved if people were selling fully equiped VPS with Nuke already installed and the amount it cost was less than they or any affiliate could even come close to matching...

    NukeX-Piracy.jpg

    People might "sell a seat" - they might do it with a legitimate copy of nuke..They are breaking the TandC of Nuke - and risking a ban here.
    But even that is not possible under any conditions without Nuke alone costing well over $50 per seat and that's if they use the most cost effective way to get it (the outsourcers license) and sell ever seat separately (which as I mentioned is also against TaC itself)

    Legitimatley there is just no way what-so-ever to sell Nuke for these prices.

    It's not opinion. It's THE facts. Live with it!
