Community Roundup – February 2015

Tags: Date/Time: March 2, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

It’s time for yet another Community Update as the second month of 2015 has officially ended around the globe. We’ve got some interesting bits and pieces that happened this month, among which a follow-up of the EU VAT Rules mentioned in the last update.

As always, if you have any news to report for this update, please PM @CommunityRoundup at LowEndTalk.com to share it.

EU VAT Rules update

Several more US-based providers have announced they will start to charge VAT soon to EU-based customers without at VAT number. This is a result of a new law introduced last year and activated on January 1st that requires every business trading in digital goods and services in the EU should charge VAT in the country of the customer. While this law is a burden to many and I’ve personally haven’t seen any benefits of it for us, the consumers, it’s alive and kicking and companies are following up on it.

Vultr is one of the most recent to announce they will start to charge VAT (effective March 1, 2015) and I’m sure others will have to follow suit soon if the EU doesn’t decide to abandon this new law (or modify it). So, if you do have a valid VAT ID, be sure to put it down where possible to prevent nasty surprises on your invoices.

Such offers including DDoS protection (not with OVH) are really quite interesting if you ask me. Host nodes have dual 6-core AMD CPUs and have several Pure SSDs in them. These offers run on a pool of xensever nodes with the aforementioned specifications. There were some positive reviews on their last offers from long-time customers, so you should be save with these guys. As always, feel free to share your experiences as well!

AheadCloud have been in business since 2013 with their domain having been registered in 2012. Their WHOIS information is currently public.  They only started offering VPS to the general public recently, having offered it to existing clients before. They started with Kansas City but recently added Lenoir to their location list. Host nodes in both locations have dual Intel L5520 CPUs, 32GB of RAM or more, and hard drives in RAID1. In Lenoir there’s a chance of having a node with a 1Gbps uplink, otherwise it’s 100Mbps. I haven’t been able to find any reviews, just a lot of offers, so we’re looking forward to hear your opinion!

HostingInside – $6.02/month or $28.23/year 512MB Xen VPS in 3 worldwide locations

Tags: , , , , , , , , Date/Time: February 25, 2015 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

hostinginside com 2015-02-25 10-06-10Joni, from HostingInside, has written us to share this offer for a XenPV machine in either of three locations: Los Angeles, CA, USA; London, UK; and Dusseldorf, Germany. There’s a decent monthly price but also a very cheap annual price!

The offer

HostingInside is a registered company in Taichung, Taiwan and has been since 2004. The domain is that same as and the WHOIS information is public. Host nodes in the USA have dual E5-2630v2 CPUs, 96GB of RAM, and 8x 600GB Intel SSDs in RAID10; in Germany the UK they have a single E3-1230v2 CPU, 32GB of RAM, and 4x 1TB hard drive in RAID10. They also seem to offer Taiwan VPS but those are quite over LowEnd pricing. Other than that they seem quite an operation given the number of products they offer. I haven’t been able to find any decent reviews, so please share your experiences with us in the comments.

evoBurst is a registered company in Australia and has been registered since October 2014. They’ve quickly gained quite some following and attention with their amazing offers. I can even attest to the quality of BudgetVZ as I quite happily use one of those machines myself for VPS and it’s rock-solid. The locations vary between the brands, as do the IPv6 subnet allocations, and the host nodes. All nodes have at least RAID1, some may have RAID10, and a 1Gbps uplink. More information on this is inside. There are special bundles which can get you multiple machines for a lower price, for example: 5x NANO128 would normally cost €15/year, but as a bundle it will cost you €10/year! How’s that for a discount! As always, please share your experiences with these guys in the comments.

OpticServers – Unmetered transfer OpenVZ VPS in Surrey, UK starting at £2/month

Tags: , , , Date/Time: February 21, 2015 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

opticservers com 2015-02-20 09-37-04Joe, from OpticServers, has written us to share these offers with us. These are located in Surrey, United Kingdom and include Arbor DDoS protection for up to 40Gbps.

Plan 1

  • 256MB RAM
  • 1 CPU core
  • 10GB SSD space
  • Unmetered transfer
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • Coupon: Opening2014
  • £1.70/month ($2.31)
  • Order here
Plan 2

  • 512MB RAM
  • 1 CPU core
  • 10GB SSD space
  • Unmetered transfer
  • 100Mbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • Coupon: Opening2014
  • £3.40/month ($4.61)
  • Order here

Please note that there are always limits beyond those displayed in case of unmetered transfer.

OpticServers is a registered company in the United Kingdom and have been since September 2014. According to Joe they operate their own data center in London, but Surrey is close to Gatwick Airport which is a bit outside of London. Still, the latency to London should be really low. DDoS protection is shared amongst all users, meaning that the 40Gbps attack capacity is not available exclusively to just one VPS. With the unmetered traffic, I have to say this is quite a unique offer, especially at this price point. If you do give them a shot, please let us know how it goes!
