    Hello @Mr_Tom ,
    Can you tell me what kind of CPU is used for this VM, is it free to DirectAdmin or not?
    And you give me IP test or looking glass page.
    Thank you very much!

    No FREE DA on the hybrids above but you can add for additional £20/year.

    The second offer (4 core, 8gb RAM, 200gb NVMe) is also available in Nottingham and does have free DA same as the ones listed.

  • It is with great regret that this notice is to inform you of the closure of VM Specialist and as such cancellation of all services going forward. This will happen on the 30th April 2022.

    If you have any services which renew before this date, they will be extended free of charge to allow backups to be taken. If you have any pre-paid services you will be contacted separately about a pro-rata refund. We are happy to provide disk images of your virtual server if required.

    Unfortunately certain circumstances mean we're not able to offer the support and level of service required going forward.

    I can only apologise for the inconvenience this may cause, but thank you for your support in the past.

    Thank you

    Tom and the team at VM Specialist

    Sad to hear this :'(

    @ehab a mix of things all hit at the same time, which means as mentioned that it makes it difficult to provide the level of support and service expected. I looked a couple of options of bringing people in/changing structure etc but ultimately it wasn't the right time.

    It's a good shout and one I considered - but ultimately I wouldn't want people to feel like that might get let down again in the future.

    Even if Tom wanted to do that, I imagine it would take too much time anyways, since it's relatively short notice (~1 month) before the closure.

    The option of looking for someone to acquire clients was looked at - my concern was data protection/etc. And while acquisitions happen all the time I wouldn't want to transfer client data to another non-UK/EU provider without thoroughly looking at options.

    While I understand it's inconvenient to have to move services, people can chose where they go.

    Folks

    Closing a business isn’t easy, as some of you may know. I have a difficult call this evening with my accountant on the very topic. Customers, anxiety, employees, bills, reputation, paperwork to fill… lots to take care of.

    @Mr_Tom ,

    I am sure you considered all possible options before pulling the plug

    Cheers.
