Bricklayer VPS – A cheap VPS host with high cost performance



Bricklayer, because its official website logo is BandwagonHost, which is somewhat similar to the spelling of BanWaGong, so our domestic webmasters like to call it Bricklayer VPS. Bricklayer VPS is a cheap VPS host with high cost performance, and it is suitable for entry-level netizens to learn Linux and build websites. (Statement and suggestion: It is strictly forbidden to use VPS and servers for illegal purposes, we must use them normally.)
        Bricklayer VPS, a low-cost KVM and OpenVZ VPS hosting solution under the US IT7 company, will cancel the OVZ renewal from December 2018. In particular, several special cheap annual payment VPS are very suitable for the needs of public VPS users in terms of cost performance and stability. We can use them for website building, Linux system learning, software debugging, and can also complete various beginners’ need test projects for regular use. . Anyway, it can be used as a novice learning VPS host to choose a cost-effective VPS. The CN2 line has been added successively, and the Hong Kong computer room was added in October 2017.
The unofficial website of Bricklayer Chinese Network is just because the author has used this VPS for a long time, and it is convenient for other new users to learn more about this cost-effective VPS host. I share this special website, hoping to provide some help to everyone. Merchants have canceled low-price plans one after another. It should be that they intend to switch to mid-to-high-end user groups, so that stability will be improved. When we choose any VPS, it is recommended to use monthly payment, especially for unfamiliar merchants. Of course, we are familiar with this company and can choose annual payment, after all, annual payment is relatively cheap. (At present, Alipay payment is supported, you can buy it yourself, which is safer)

Bricklayer VPS
 Bricklayer VPS recommended plan
Bricklayer VPS, the following cheap annual payment plans are the ones that we like the most and have a high user utilization rate. The basic annual payment used to only cost $3.99, but it is out of stock now. Merchants have begun to shift to mid-to-high-end user groups, and have begun to avoid low-price strategies one after another. All adopt the Linux system environment of OpenVZ and KVM architecture, and support more than 30 common system versions such as CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu. And there is no limit to the number of times to reinstall the system (some businesses have a limit on the number of installations per day/month), so it is a good choice for beginners who need to install multiple times to learn VPS.

In 2017, brick-and-mortar VPS merchants added multiple computer rooms such as Los Angeles MC, Canada, New York, CN2, Hong Kong, etc. At present, there are a total of 11 computer rooms/data centers to choose from, and since March, new KVM VPS has been added. Compared with OpenVZ The architecture is more flexible, more compatible software can be installed, and the stability is better. In October, a new Hong Kong computer room was added, and CN2 computer room was also added to 2 (DC3/DC8). Starting from December 2018, the OPENVZ architecture will be removed from the shelves and it will no longer be renewable, and the 19.99 annual payment plan will be canceled at the same time. Starting from February 2019, the new Los Angeles CN2 GIA-E high-bandwidth solution has been added, and the Bricklayer VPS host has officially entered the ranks of mid-to-high-end merchants. In March 2019, bricklayers canceled the 29.99 annual payment plan, and the minimum annual payment required was 49.99 to start.

Notice to users: Any host and domain name we choose must be used legally and legally. If there is a violation, the IP, domain name, or even legal liability will be blocked directly.

 Bricklayer VPS FAQ
Tip: In general, our users may have these problems when purchasing and using the bricklayer VPS. Here the author organizes these may be what you need.
1. Which users are suitable for Bricklayer VPS?
Answer: Personally, it is relatively simple for beginners to learn VPS host applications, beginners, users who like tossing and various hang-up projects. It is strictly forbidden to use the host for bad purposes, which may lead to the server being blocked or other legal consequences.

2. Which plan do I need to purchase for building a website?
Answer: If it is used to build a website, I personally recommend 512MB memory + solution. Whether using a one-click environment package or a WEB panel, 512MB memory is the basic configuration. However, as the content and traffic of the website increase, we may need to upgrade the server in the future. If the traffic is large, it is recommended to switch to another service provider, after all, this service provider is only suitable for basic purposes.

3. Can the bricklayer VPS install Windows system?
Answer: Currently there is only a Linux system, but you can install VNC on it or other ways to install a Linux-based desktop environment.

4. Do you support refund if you are not satisfied with the purchase and use?
Answer: At present, only newly registered accounts are supported to apply for refunds within 30 days. Accounts exceeding 30 days do not support refunds (refund policy). (previously there was one refund opportunity per account)

5. Is the Bricklayer VPS host suitable for website construction?
Answer: Any VPS can be used to build a website. Whether it is a well-known or non-famous business, regular data backups must be done. For this VPS service provider, you have to remember that the cost paid and the price/performance ratio given are quite sufficient, and don’t expect too much.

6. What should I pay attention to when registering a new account?
Answer: When a new user registers an account, you can refer to the “Purchase Tutorial” to purchase and register a new account, which is relatively simple and convenient. And the personal information can be untrue, but the country and basic information should not be written casually, and the “agent && agent” IP cannot be used to log in and register, otherwise it will be considered a fraudulent order.

7. If the purchased host is not enough, how to upgrade other advanced plans?
Answer: If we start to purchase the basic plan, we can apply to upgrade other plans in the background, and only need to supplement the price difference. For details, you can refer to this method (reference: Self-service upgrade method for bricklayer VPS hosting plan).

8. How to change the IP and switch to other computer rooms for the masonry VPS?
Answer: One of the very good advantages of Bricklayer VPS is that you can switch to other computer rooms in the KIWIVM panel, and then you can change different IP addresses infinitely.

9. Which data center should we choose?
Answer: Bricklayer VPS currently has 8 data centers in Los Angeles MC, Los Angeles QN, Phoenix, Florida, and the Netherlands. Los Angeles and Phoenix have better speed for Chinese. (8 bricklayer data center test IPs)

10. What if the traffic is not enough?
Answer: Any VPS plan has a traffic limit. If the traffic is not enough, we can upgrade the plan, or wait for the next month to continue using it. (Reference: Interpretation of the Bricklayer VPS Host Traffic Calculation Method / What to do if the traffic is exhausted?)

11. How to renew the Bricklayer VPS host when it expires?
Answer: If we do not cancel the automatic renewal reminder, a renewal work order will be generated about 12 days before the expiration, and an email will also remind us that we can directly click on the work order to renew. If we cancel the automatic renewal reminder, then we need to submit a TICKET to request renewal, and then manually renew our work order. (Several questions about bricklayer VPS renewal, automatic renewal, cancellation of renewal, complete arrangement of bricklayer VPS server due renewal/automatic renewal/expired deletion, etc.)

12. Will the low-cost annual payment plan still be available?
Answer: Starting from the end of 2018, the VPS hosting company of Bricklayer will cancel the low-price configuration annual payment plan. Brand new products may appear in 2019, or merchants may start to abandon the low-priced and cheap market and appear with performance products. For example, we can see CN2 GIA, Hong Kong and other computer rooms. Hope to see new products in 2019. (Bricklayers have no discounts on New Year’s Day in 2019, welcome to 2019)

13. What is the speed of the bricklayer VPS?
Answer: At present, VPS for bricklayers can choose 8 computer rooms in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Florida, and the Netherlands. The speed of Los Angeles and Phoenix is ​​good, especially during the day. Due to international export problems at night, not only bricklayers, but other services The same speed is not very stable business. (8 computer room speed measurement addresses)

14. Can the OpenVZ architecture be renewed after it expires?
Answer: From December 2018, we can see that the OPENVZ architecture has been removed from the shelves, and the OVZ architecture VPS host we already have in the account cannot be renewed. It will be deleted after expiration, so we should purchase a new VPS host in advance to relocate data migration. This ensures your data security. After all, mainstream merchants are currently using the KVM architecture, and even those who used the XEN architecture before have changed to use the KVM architecture. (Reference: The bricklayer OPENVZ architecture is off the shelves and cannot be renewed, and it is migrated to the KVM architecture)

15. Is it possible to purchase multiple independent IPs for the Bricklayer VPS?
Answer: By default, the VPS of any computer room we purchased has only one independent IP address. If our project requires multiple independent IP addresses, we can submit a TICKET to the official customer service to purchase, but it is relatively expensive, $2.5 per month , so it is better for us to buy new machines ourselves.

16. What is the reason for fraudulent billing in BandwagonHost orders?
Answer: I often see some netizens mentioning that they were prohibited from paying because of fraudulent orders when purchasing Bandwagonhost VPS servers. This problem is mainly caused by our personal problems. For example, do we use non-local IPs to conceal our real information, and personal information is scribbled, including national information must be true. And the source of our payment funds is authentic.

17. Is the BandwagonHost VPS server account safe and does it need to be purchased?
Answer: BandwagonHost now supports Alipay payment. We don’t need to find someone to buy on behalf of us. We can directly pay by ourselves with credit card, Alipay, PAYPAL, etc. Even if we used to renew the account purchased on behalf of us, we can also renew it ourselves. For the security of the account, we need to use our own email address and password to be more complicated, or open the secondary password verification mechanism. We try to keep the server as safe as possible, because three warnings will result in a suspension.

18. How to use bricklayer/cheap VPS host correctly?
Answer: We can see a lot of cheap American VPS hosts like masonry VPS on the Internet. In fact, no matter whether it is cheap or expensive, we have to treat it the same. In particular, VPS is different from virtual host, there are too many uncertain factors, we need to pay special attention to

The intention is to back up the website data regularly, and if there is a problem, the data can be transferred and restored.

19. The latest issue about the switch room and IP of the masonry VPS
Answer: Recently, many users’ IP addresses cannot be accessed due to operations, which is related to many of our project operations. Aiming at the problem of a large amount of IP waste, bricklayer VPS merchants are not allowed to replace the computer room for the restricted IP machines, so we should pay attention to the usage specifications when choosing VPS. (Choose the VPS computer room plan for moving bricklayers and switch the computer room/IP method correctly)

20. Which one should you choose between DC3 and DC8 in Los Angeles CN2 GT?
Answer: At present, in the CN2 computer room of Los Angeles, except for CN2 GIA, which is a three-network direct connection line, and the ordinary one-way CN2 DC8 and DC3, many netizens are entangled in which one to choose. In fact, the speed is basically the same during the day, and it will be slightly more stable than DC8 CN2 at night, but it also depends on the actual user area node network. (How to choose the DC3 and DC8 computer rooms for the CN2 scheme of the masonry mover)

21. What is the KVM architecture plan for bricklayers?
Answer: In March 2017, we can see the newly added KVM architecture solution. From the perspective of stability, it must be more stable than OPENVZ, and there are more software that can be installed. Some specific software can only be installed on XEN and KVM architectures. OPENVZ is not supported, so it depends on the needs of our users. If you don’t mind the KVM 6 computer room, it is recommended to choose the KVM architecture first.

22. Choose KVM architecture or OPENVZ architecture?
Answer: In May 2017, I saw that the bricklayer Bandwagonhost merchant readjusted the KVM architecture. There are 6 computer rooms, and the basic price configuration is the same as that of 8 computer rooms OPENVZ. , you can choose OPENVZ. Because the KVM architecture supports the BBR kernel.

23. How about adding the Los Angeles CN2 computer room to the bricklayer?
Answer: The newly added Los Angeles CN2 computer room is officially launched, and other computer rooms cannot be switched, and the price is still a bit higher than other computer room solutions, after all, the cost is higher. In terms of speed, the direct connection speed of the CN2 computer room is relatively good. Currently, China Unicom does not have a direct connection. It is said that the line will be optimized in the future (reference: CN2 line speed measurement).

24. Is it possible to replace the computer room in Los Angeles CN2?
Answer: When we choose the VPS hosting plan, the advantage of this business is that it has multiple computer rooms, and it can be switched by itself in the background. For some projects, it is indeed more cost-effective. Los Angeles CN2 computer room cannot see other computer rooms when purchasing, but we can switch to other KVM ordinary line computer rooms in the background. (Reference: Los Angeles CN2 line plan to switch to other KVM ordinary computer rooms).

25. How about the VPS host computer room in Hong Kong?
Answer: In view of the needs of users, bricklayer VPS merchants have also launched Hong Kong computer rooms, equipped with 1Gbps bandwidth, which is absolutely competitive, but the traffic starts at 100GB per month, which is indeed a little bit small. If we are building a website, it is really unnecessary. If you have money, you can buy it and try it out. A monthly payment plan is recommended. (Reference: Bricklayer Hong Kong Data Center/Computer Room VPS Host Performance Speed ​​Test).

26. What should I do if the IP of the Bricklayer VPS host is unreachable?
Answer: If the IP of the VPS host of the bricklayer is blocked or blocked due to special reasons, the current solution is to purchase a new VPS or apply for a new IP address, but it is recommended that we use any VPS host to use it normally , so as to ensure the safe operation of the server. (Reference: How to change the IP address of a masonry VPS and how to ensure IP security).

27. How to choose the bricklayer VPS GIA/GT CN2?
Answer: In mid-March 2018, the merchant released a test version of the GIA CN2 solution. This line is theoretically better than GT CN2, but it is currently in the testing stage, so our users suggest that it is safer to use the CN2 GT solution, and the GIA CN2 solution Currently there is only one solution, and the cost is relatively high. (Reference: Suggestions on choosing CN2 GT and CN2 GIA for masonry VPS hosts).

28. Which VPS should I choose for the bricklayer VPS to build a website?
Answer: If we need to use it for building a website, Bricklayer VPS is suitable for building ordinary websites. If it is a large website, it is not recommended to use the products of this service provider. Cost-effectiveness is more expensive in large configurations, and service providers will be banned if the server overloads resources three times, so it is not recommended for large websites. If you need to choose, it is recommended to use the CN2 GIA-CN2 GT-KVM solution.

29. Which one should you choose between CN2 GIA and the Hong Kong computer room?
Answer: From the actual test, the current CN2 GIA line scheme is the best in the US line room, and the speed is relatively good no matter it is day or night. Some netizens asked how to choose between Hong Kong and CN2 GIA. In fact, in terms of cost, Hong Kong is indeed more expensive, and Hong Kong traffic is relatively small. It is recommended to use CN2 GIA if we use a lot of traffic, and if we really need speed, we can use Hong Kong. (Reference: CN2 GIA plan for masonry movers and Hong Kong PCCW computer room line selection)

30. What should I do if the IP of the Bricklayer VPS host is blocked?
Answer: In fact, it is not just a certain VPS hosting provider, basically many hosting providers have the problem that these users encounter the host IP being blocked. 99.99% of the problems are caused by our use of unallowed items, and a small part may be caused by misjudgment. So let’s not talk about how the merchants are, it is actually caused by our own improper use. How to solve it if the IP is blocked in the VPS host of the bricklayer? At present, there is a way to buy a new IP, and wait for five weeks to replace it for free, or just buy a new server directly. (Reference: Why is it easy to seal the IP address of the bricklayer VPS host and attach the method of not sealing the IP address) At present, merchants no longer support changing IP addresses for free. Due to the lack of IP resources, we can only purchase new IP addresses, so we must use them regularly.

31. How to prevent the server IP security from being blocked?
Answer: Netizens often mention that the IP of the server they purchased is blocked. In fact, if we use it normally, the probability of being blocked is very small. If our server IP is blocked, we need to ask ourselves what did you do? If it is a formal study and use, and a formal website is built, there must be very little such a probability. If it is our own problem, then we can only choose to buy a new IP or wait to replace the free IP. Reasons and solutions for the blockage of the bricklayer server IP

32. Which one should you choose between CN2 DC3 and CN2 DC8 in Los Angeles?
Answer: We have seen that in addition to the CN2 GIA and Hong Kong computer rooms that we know are better in the masonry machine room, but there are DC3 and DC8 in the CN2 GT. In fact, after our test, there is not much difference between the two, both are half-way CN2 routes, and CN2 DC8 will be slightly better in some areas. Our users can switch to see, and use whichever is better for them. Reference: How to choose the DC3 and DC8 computer rooms for the CN2 scheme of the masonry mover

33. The difference and selection between DC6 CN2 GIA and DC9 CN2 GIA
Answer: We have seen from 2019 that the tile-moving business has added DC6 CN2 GIA, adopting the highest 10Gbps bandwidth solution. Compared with the previous DC9 CN2 GIA, the price has been improved, but the performance cannot be guaranteed due to the different lines. It is better than the previous ones, and it depends on the items used and selected by actual users. We can choose one of them to see if it fits our project. The DC6 CN2 GIA is excellent only from the configuration point of view, but the actual use depends on the project. (Reference: What to choose between DC6 CN2 GIA and DC9 CN2 GIA for bricklayers)

34. Can bricklayers install remote desktop or Windows system?
Answer: The brick-and-mortar VPS is a Linux server, so the built-in system image can only install the Linux system, and cannot directly install the WIN system or remote desktop, but we can install the VNC desktop or the WIN system through technology, such as reference One-key DD quick installation of Windows 8 system for remote access to the Bricklayer VPS host. The article can be one-key DD to install the WIN system.

35. The IP of the masonry server is blocked and the solution?
Answer: Recently we can see that the IP addresses of many server merchants have been blocked, and now the blocked IPs are not allowed to be replaced for free. To ensure that the server IP is not blocked, our only way is to use it normally. If you build illegal content, the IP will be blocked if it is light, and you will bear legal responsibility if it is serious. So we need to use it normally, refer to: The method of unblocking the IP address of the masonry VPS host and avoiding being blocked IP summarizes the relevant solutions in the article.
