Prometeus – 18th Birthday Special – Xen and OpenVZ from $6.90/month in Milan

Tags: , , , , , , , , Date/Time: May 24, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

prometeus net 2015-05-22 16-52-43Each year, these posts get more special to write, but at 18, it’s a very special one. Salvatore has shared these offers with the community to celebrate Prometeus18th birthday!

  • 4 CPU cores
  • 180GB HDD space
  • 1.8TB transfer

Yes, I know what you’re thinking. This provider is older than most people are that are running some “providers” on LET. And that is worth a lot of very big heartfelt congratulations from all of us!

1997 was the year that I got introduced to the internet, actually. Dialing up each morning around 06:30 with my dad to track the Withbread Round the World Race progress. And Salvatore was busy doing hosting! It’s incredible. But what’s even more incredible is that they are still around today offering simply stellar service and servers at insanely low prices. I’m not just talking about their regular offering, but also about iwStack: the first real cloud within LowEnd price range!

I could now bother you with the details of the massive host nodes that Prometeus uses, but instead I’m going to give you this coupon for 18% off of any invoice (one invoice only)! The coupon is 18OneOff! It’s valid for all servers other than the ones above, so it’s also valid for iwStack credits.

I invite you, please, to share your congratulations in the comments for Salvatore and the rest of Prometeus for having been with us for 18 years!

screenshot-securedragon net 2015-05-20 11-20-03Joe, from Secure Dragon, didn’t send in a ticket to inform us of these VPS he offers. Instead, I went to his website and decided to list it from there, as part of my initiative to start listing offers from providers on my own initiative.

Secure Dragon has been around for quite a long time now and Joe was helping out LowEndAdmin during the first years of the website. He was even one of the first LET members on Vanilla. He has been slowly building and expanding his business which now spreads across a whopping nine US locations. On top of that, they have their custom control panel called Wyverin (which is being continuously improved), they own all their servers in all locations, and they get their IPs from ARIN. Reviews are predominantly very positive and I can attest to that myself. If you are currently a customer at Secure Dragon or decide to pick up one of these boxes as a result of this post, please let us know how things go!

Cheap Windows VPS – $5.25/month 768MB Windows KVM and more in the USA

Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: May 20, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

cheapwindowsvps com 2015-05-12 06-44-42Tony, from Cheap Windows VPS, is back with a LowEndBox exclusive for a 768MB Windows VPS in Buffalo, New York, USA.

768MB RAM

  • 768MB RAM
  • 1x vCPU
  • 30GB SSD space
  • 750GB transfer
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • KVM/SolusVM
  • $5.25/month
  • Order here
1.15GB RAM

  • 1.15GB RAM
  • 1x vCPU
  • 45GB SSD space
  • 2TB transfer
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • KVM/SolusVM
  • $7/month
  • Order here

Cheap Windows VPS has been around for a while and we have featured them several times before. This is the first time the 768MB server pops up and it’s been created especially for LowEndBox. The 1.15GB was their Black Friday Special and Tony asked me to include that here as well, as it’s back for a limited time. Needless to say these are quite competitive Windows VPS offers. Host nodes are configured with Dual Intel E5-2620v2 CPUs, 128 GB RAM, and 8x 1TB SSDs in hardware RAID50. We’re looking forward to hear how these guys are doing since in the last offer Tony noted hosts were getting 20% less customers than before in order to improve performance.

CosmosTeck – $6/month 4GB OpenVZ and $7/month 4GB/4IP Cloud in Los Angeles

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: May 18, 2015 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

CosmosTeck-Portal_Home_-_COSMOS_NETWORK_TECHNOLOGY_LTD_-_2014-08-04_14.59.08Steven, from CosmosTeck, has sent in these two offers for LowEndBox readers. One of them is a VPS, the other one is a resource account.

4GB Resource Pool

  • 4 instance limit
  • 4GB RAM
  • 4x vCPU
  • 40GB HDD space
  • 2TB transfer
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • 4x IPv4
  • 10x IPv6
  • OpenVZ/Virtualizor
  • Coupon: lowendboxcloud
  • $7/month
  • Order here
4GB VPS

  • 4GB RAM
  • 4x vCPU
  • 40GB HDD space
  • 1TB transfer
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • OpenVZ/Virtualizor
  • $6/month
  • Order here

There are 50 resource pool accounts available, so be quick!

CosmosTeck has lowered the price of their 4GB OpenVZ with $1/month since last time we featured them, making it an even more competitive offer. It does come with normal hard drive space now, whereas last time it was listed as SSD space. Their resource account allows you to create a maximum of 4 VPS with the resource that are available, though you may create less as well. Comments on their last offer were mixed, with some being very satisfied and one person seemingly having hit a bit of a bump with support. CosmosTeck have been around a while, though, with their first offer dating back to 2013. They started in 2011, meaning they go back four years, which is quite something given today’s standards; they are a registered company as well. As always, feel free to share your experiences with us in the comments!

We know We Love Servers from their big bang-for-buck offers with a focus on annual deals. They’ve done some quite interesting deals before, especially in the UK. Their support is a bit hit-or-miss for some people, but at this price point one may think that that’s acceptable. Host nodes run dual Intel Xeon E5-2620 CPUs, 128GB of RAM, and hard drives in RAID10. rDNS is available from within SolusVM, though I’m not sure if that’s for both IPv4 and IPv6. If you are currently a customer with We Love Servers: we look forward to hearing from you how these boxes perform!

CoinsHost is part of Incloudibly, who seems to have a similar offering bit with longer billing terms. CoinsHost is primarily based around paying with BitCoins, though you can also pay with money. These VPS come with a 10Gbps uplink, which is quite exceptional for a VPS in Europe with this price. Host nodes have dual Intel E5645 CPUs, 192GB of RAM, SAN-based storage, and 4x 10Gbps uplink. That’s a pretty serious setup. There’s 24/7 technical support via chat, e-mail, and tickets. If you give these guys a short or are already a customer, please share your experiences with us in the comments!

Virpus.com is a Wow Technologies, Inc. company founded in 2006. Their parent company was founded in 2001 and houses such customers as Microsoft, Vulcan, Moz, Rosetta Stone, Intelius and more in 18,000 sq. ft. data center in Seattle WA along with 8 other global locations. They have been featured here multiple times before with their first offer dating way back in 2010. I could say that they are a very established company and will probably stay for a very long time in the hosting business.

Exact host node information is not available. The only thing we know is that they are using Xeon processors and that the disk is SSD-Cached in RAID10 configuration. The prices they sent us for this is cheaper that their last couple of offers. However, past reviews were not very positive. It would greatly help our readers if current customers will share their feedback below in the comments section. We would love to hear if their serviced improved with the recent acquisition by Wow Technologies.

Tutorial – The LowEndCluster – Part 3

Tags: Date/Time: May 12, 2015 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

lowendtutorial

Welcome back to the 3rd part of the LowEndCluster tutorial series! Last time we’ve set up an actual web node which we’re going to put behind a “load balancer”, or actually a proxy, in this tutorial. The result will be that it’s both available over IPv4 and IPv6.

Before we dive into this neat function of NGINX however, let me get back to the LowEndCluster as a whole. Initially, I had two goals in mind: redundancy and scalability. While working on the cluster, I found out that doing both at the same time provides a lot of challenges, some even at the budget-part. My goal was to have a redundant cluster for less than $50/year and I’m going to retain my focus on that. Automatic fail-over and scaling is something I’d like to cover in future tutorials, but not in this series. This means that our filesystem doesn’t technically require KVM machines anymore. I’ll do a wrap-up in the end of what I turned out to be using for this tutorial so you have a nice overview.

Anyway, enough babbling. Let’s get to work!

Ilgar told us that their office is located 6 minutes away from the datacenter where they have their own racks. This means that they have the capacity to quickly respond to problems that requires remote hands.

Communication is prioritized by AbeloHost as a business practice. They provide their clients with their Skype accounts (ilgar.abelohostbv) so that they can directly receive support. I believe that this is a very big plus. Since AbeloHost is new here, we will appreciate any feedback from their current customers below at the comments section.
