Just in case you did not notice - my favourite cloud VPS provider VULTR has a promotion, giving away $20 BONUS (no credit card required) to new accounts. At $5 per server/month this means 4 free months of hosting!

If you dont know VULTR yet, I suggest you give it a try (and I will be thankful if you use my affiliate link here to do it; or continue directly here).

I can suggest my guide on setting up a masternode (on Vultr) to get you started.

I use Vultr for last 6 months, and I am really in love with it - its just perfect. So if you have any questions, fire away.

cheers,
W

Seems this code has quit working. "Cannot add code: Gift code has expired." Tried a few others from searching the web, but none of those seem to work either. Does anyone know of any codes that work as of today? Thanks!

It should still work for NEW accounts.
My account is new, but I went ahead and deposited some BTC and started testing because I couldn't find any codes that work. Tried to use your code again today and now I'm seeing "Gift code is only valid for newly funded accounts." :sad:

Edit: VULTR support confirmed this code has expired. They say to keep an eye on their Twitter feed for new promotional codes (@TheVultr).

Oh bummer.
Thank you for feedback anyhow.
Lets keep this thread open for sharing NEW VULTR promo codes that DO WORK.

Oh, BTW - if you use bitcoin deposit, VULTR promises to give you $5 of extra credit automatically (first btc deposit only). I am interested- did you get that bonus?

thanks,
W

Just tried paying an invoice with BTC. Will report back if it adds a bonus. Assuming this isn't just for new customers.

The only thing I haven't tried yet is switching to a non-vultr host. I've given up on MNs for the time being, they absolutely will not stay on "masternode list" for more than a few minutes, have to constantly restart them, never, ever get a payment.

It's either vultr, or MNs just plain do not work. Pretty sure that 800+ count means MNs do work, so it has to be vultr. Vultr may be cheap, but not a thing has ever worked that I've tried to use them for. This now includes MNs. Just plain don't work.

I'm not interested in MN Welfare. I want to sort the double standard.

Why is it that I can clone the process, and it doesn't work, but everyone else's does work, even though nothing is different... When I can answer that question, I can have MNs. For now, the only thing I can figure is that Vultr has crap for network comms. MNs just stop moving data within moments of being started, and then disappear. Tried it with and without any firewall, with and without fail2ban. Makes no difference. They just instantly stop comms and disappear. Started over from scratch 4 times. That's a real pain with this many MNs...

Work sucks! Quit doin' that crap! Best thing I ever did for myself!

Problem could be related to rash of recent updates... Will try again, but with only 2 nodes instead of the whole lot of them...

I give up on MNs. They just don't work. Preparing dump since holding the coins doesn't do me anything.

Just wanted to officially say, that if you are advanced user with more than few masternodes and knowledge of linux, that in this case you might find way cheaper VPS hosters out there. Best way to start searching for deals are two sites: http://lowendbox.com/ and http://www.lowendtalk.com ... With no effort at all, you will manage to find VPS hosters (with 512MB+ of ram, 10GB hdd space...) for $5-15/year!!! Making this 5-10x more effective as Vultr....

If you are beginner however, Vultr still has the best support, and nicest user interface...
