    Only order if you want to do some testing or for your hobbies.

    Their servers are down a lot. Sometimes up to 300+ minutes per day. Roughly 5 hrs+

      I had the same problem with them when I tested one of their VPS plans. Bandwidth tests showed the servers are run very congested with little available bandwidth and the servers went down enough that I just left it to run it’s billing out and never extended. Too many offers here anymore where people just buy a reseller account but don’t have the knowledge or expertise to deal with simple issues and keep servers up.

      Servers like this are good for playing around. Nothing more.

      They must be adding all their new customers from this deal to my node. This past week, I’ve had several out of memory problems. Now it takes forever just to type in a simple command. Currently, it is as useful as a brick.

    I have 1GB KVM from them, speed is too much slow, even a command line sometime stucks and take 5 seconds to show on ssh interface. No doubt it is 100% up from last 40 days. But too much slow.

      Unfortunately, this is prohibited.

      I would recommend a Hybrid or Dedicated Server in this case.

    I bought a VPS and webhosting from them last year, absolutely horrible. As another user mentioned, painfully slow SSH, inconsistent performance. And the website would take 10-15 seconds to load

      If you could send your service information I will grant you with a free month of shared hosting on our latest server, as a method of saying sorry. Customers from all corners of the street are catered for with us, be you be a small business to a personal user; we truly care.

    The network is really slow. This is what I have got on a 1gbit network connection option (extra pay). They will keep telling you that sometimes the network has a slowdown but its been 6 days and its the same or worse every time I test. If all you want is 100mbps I guess its fine but for 1gbit its awful.

  23. Disgruntled Customer:

    I paid for 1gbps port but the speeds are less then 100mbps. I asked for a refund on the port and they just dont reply to support requests.

    I would never use this company again.

    February 13, 2019 @ 9:37 am | Reply
    • Josh:

      1Gbit/s ports tend to be shared on demand between users on the same node, please note speed test websites are never true reflections of the bandwidth due to:
      – Geographic location
      – Testing server load
      – Firewall

      Also, please do note the difference between Mbit/s and MB/s.

      Nevertheless, send me your ticket number and I will refund you the cost of the add-on whilst leaving it enabled on your account.

    I am happy enough with the 2GB SSD KVM VPS.
    I use it for a low volume email server. It is faster and cheaper than the chicagovps I had.
    It runs at about 5% CPU.
    SSD I/O Read Speed avg 0.00246 Mb/s.

    It took a couple of attempts to get a clean IP. The support was sufficiently responsive.
    As it was when I requested rDNS.

    As others have mentioned the SSH terminal isn’t exactly smooth but its better than the 300 baud bulletin board days. Enabling compression on the link helped.

    The KVM container is working nicely. I manually upgraded to linux kernel v4.20.7 without a hiccup.
    OpenSSL is also the latest and greatest version. That also went without a hitch as did all the other software upgrades outside of the standard production versions for the OS.

    There’s enough resources left over in the VPS that I may even get docker going :)
    just to see how accurate some of the resourcing comments above really are ;)

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
