OpenVirtuals – 6 OpenVZ offers in 3 US locations starting at $3/month for 256MB

Tags: , , , , , , , Date/Time: September 23, 2014 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

Eric, from OpenVirtuals, is back with six exclusive “end of summer deals” for LowEndBox readers. There are both SSD and SSD-cached plans available in various sizes. The SSD-cached servers now pack quite some more hard drive space than last time. OpenVirtuals is a subsidiary of Intercom Online Inc (a C corporation). OpenVirtuals is active since May 2012 and they have been featured five times before on LowEndBox.com. All promotion codes are valid for three months from this post. OpenVirtuals provides “traditional” hard drive space in addition to SSD space, so you can put your files where they fit best! They have their own IP addresses, though these are not used in all locations. Port speeds are 1Gbps with ColoCrossing and 100Mbps in their NYC location. OpenVirtuals offers a 100% uptime guarantee ‘supported by a generous SLA’. Comments regarding their services have been generally positive.

EpiDrive – $6.95/month 1GB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix, Arizona

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: September 22, 2014 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

EpiDrive-Premium_Quality_Hosting_Made_Affordable_-_Epidrive_Webhosting_Solutions_-_2014-09-15_10.53.00Bryson, from EpiDrive, has sent in a special offer for LowEndBox readers. It is labeled as a special LEB plan, so I am assuming it’s exclusive to us.

The offer

  • 2 CPU cores
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1.5GB Burst RAM
  • 30GB HDD space
  • 250GB traffic
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • IPv6
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • Coupon: EDVS5JQ2LEB
  • $6.95/month
  • Order here

We know Bryson from fraphost.com, which he sold a while back because he became busy at the time. He told me this time around he isn’t all by himself and is in it for the longer term. These offers run on hardware located in PhoenixNAP, which I assume is rented hardware, and the servers have an E3 CPU and hardware RAID. They get their bandwidth directly from PhoenixNAP. Please share your experiences if you give these guys a try!

Host1Plus – OpenVZ VPS in Brazil, South Africa, Germany, USA starting at $2/month

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , Date/Time: September 20, 2014 @ 1:00 am, by Maarten Kossen

Host1Plus-Web_Hosting_Services_Provided_by_HOST1PLUS_-_2014-07-19_17.28.30Paulius, from Host1Plus.com, is back with an exclusive offer for 20% off their regular price by using the coupon LEB. This coupon expires September 30th, so order a server while the coupon is still valid!

Bronze

  • 256MB RAM
  • 0.5 vCPU Core
  • 20GB HDD space
  • 500GB traffic
  • 50Mbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • OpenVZ/Custom
  • Coupon: LEB
  • $2.00/month
  • $1.60/month

Silver

  • 512MB RAM
  • 1 vCPU Core
  • 30GB HDD space
  • 1TB traffic
  • 50Mbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • OpenVZ/Custom
  • Coupon: LEB
  • $5/month
  • $4/month
  • Order here

Some notes: you get a small additional discount of you order for a longer billing term. Bandwidth and pricing may vary in Brazil. Additional IPv4 are available for $2/month.

Since Host1Plus have overhauled their plans, TUN/TAP, NAT, and PPP are all included free of charge. I’m still sure this is the cheapest South Africa offer we’ve ever seen on LowEndBox.com, the second host in it’s history that features that location, and I think there’s not too many competition to be expected. I think they are the only host we’ve featured thus far that offers a Brazil location. What makes these offer even more unique, is that it has quite some bandwidth. Yes, the port speed may be limited to 50Mbps, but 500GB or 1TB of bandwidth is still a lot for these locations. Los Angeles was recently added as a location, so people based in Asia can order from there as well to get reduced latency. Host1Plus has been doing business since 2008 and is a division of D. E. Technologies Ltd., which is a registered company in England and Wales. They have offices in London (UK), Kaunas (Lithuania), Frankfurt am Maine (Germany), and Sao Paolo (Brazil) so I have the idea they have quite an operation running. From my personal experience I can say these machines run just fine. I have one both in Brazil and South Africa and for the past 11 months they’ve had 100% uptime. If you decide to give them a try, please share your experiences with us in the comments!

INIZ – $19.55/year 256MB and $6.70/month 5GB OpenVZ VPS in AMS, NYC, LA

Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: September 18, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

INIZ-Budget-VPS-SSD-VPS-Managed-VPS-Unmanaged-VPS-2014-01-23-09-25-21Patrick, from INIZ, has sent the community 2 exceptional OpenVZ offers available in three locations. INIZ has been featured many times before, and reviews from users have been quite stellar throughout the life of the company. They have also achieved 3rd place in the Top Provider quarterly poll three times in a row. The nodes that the virtual servers are hosted on are quite beefy, and very generous. They consist of Dual E5-2650 CPUs, HP RAID with flash cache and 10x4TB RAID10 disks in the Netherlands, and Dual E5-2620v1/2 CPUs, LSI 9271 RAID with CV and 8x3TB RAID10 in the United States for both of their locations. A great advantage at INIZ, which we do not see every day with other providers, is the use of dual 1Gbps uplinks for redundancy at the node level. rDNS entries are easily, and instantly configured via SolusVM, eliminating the need to waste countless hours by opening a support ticket for it to be manually configured.  Unlike the majority of providers here on LowEndBox, only a few actually run their own BGP session. INIZ is one of the few and proud. They run their BGP (AS62599) sessions at each of their locations with the US, as well as the EU. Not to mention that they are also now a RIPE member, congratulations! All offers include 1 IPv6 address by default, a /64 IPv6 can be requested by ticket in NYC and AMS. If you are a current customer with INIZ, please do share your reviews and comments below.

The host nodes have a Intel Core i7-4770 CPU, 32GB of RAM, 2x 2TB hard drives in software RAID-1, and a 1Gbps uplink.

This offer includes a 30-day unconditional money back guarantee, which is quite unique is you ask me. Free weekly backups are included as well.
