CityNet Host – $6.50 512MB Xen VPS in Egypt

Tags: , , Date/Time: January 8, 2011 @ 12:20 pm, by LowEndAdmin

CityNet Host For those who prefer Xen over OpenVZ, it is again available at CityNet Host. Mohamed has emailed me this ordering link, which gets you the following VPS for $6.50/month:

  • 512MB memory
  • 25GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

I guess by now everyone would know that CityNet Host have their servers in Egypt, backed by a telecom there. I still do not have personal dealing with them (latency is way too high from where I am), but from previous posts the performance seems to be okay, the network connectivity can be mediocre (or great) depending on where you connect from, but the support is generally pretty good. They also have claim to have 30 days money back but might need to check on the terms & conditions on that.

    • Hype V? I guess with Windows-based VPS it’s not automated and would need to be setup manually.

    Latency was generally OK but the last 2-3 days it increased by like 2x, with some packet loss too, like the network is overloaded or DDOSed.

    Besides above

    I think it would be fair to say i have been happy with the network and support. (With my current Linux VPS from them) overall i would recommend them.

    Uptime is good but there is something to say about the network performance, during a peak hours I got max 20 kB/sec to Belgium. While off-peak times I’m able to get 800 kB/sec.

      It was better (e.g. in december), but recently went really bad, so I can no longer recommend them to anyone.
      My ticket about network speed is ignored for several days.

    Yeah I never got much more than 1 MB/sec even in the ‘good’ times. The only use I would imagine for a VPS with such network speed is an IRC client/bouncer, but they do not allow IRC so it is not an option.
    @citynethost.com – can you please reconsider your TOS to allow personal IRC clients, bots(non spamming) and bouncers (I don’t ask to allow servers).

  14. I’m a fan so far. My VPS has been up for 45 days without a problem. Cachefly download was 70kbs/sec, but that’s to be expected considering the location. Mine is a backup server, so I more or less set it up and forgot about it. I only log into it if I’m bored and want to play with something.

      At 22:34 UTC (00:34am local time), Renesys observed the virtually simultaneous withdrawal of all routes to Egyptian networks in the Internet’s global routing table. Approximately 3,500 individual BGP routes were withdrawn, leaving no valid paths by which the rest of the world could continue to exchange Internet traffic with Egypt’s service providers. Virtually all of Egypt’s Internet addresses are now unreachable, worldwide.

    Actually, that is in itself the reason for revolution, revolutions there doesn’t happen every day like some thought (particularly one who is making fun of revolutions). The reason for revolution is that Egypt has the essentials to be a Great place as it has always been, thus someone with the MINIMUM correct management qualifications, would EASILY put it in a correct place and not more than it. Like GERMANY for instance, the great country of Germany, PEOPLE of it WILL have the place GERMANY deserve, and should always have because of having democracy and the best qualified people leading therefore leads them where GERMANY shall and must be. While in a case like Egypt the current president has been in his chair for 30 years, and the worst part is, that in recent years he was doing EVERYTHING possible to let his SON to come after him! His party even went with silly rigging in last election there! VERY SILLY one, to make sure almost 100% of chairs goes to his party that has been in power for MANY decades, and so he can easily put his son AFTER this 30 years ends! So, the issue went down to become a single FAMILY issue even!!!! Not to mention the TOTAL FAIL during those 30 years, in managing EGYPT correctly. So, this ‘revolution’ doesn’t happen every day, or every decade even. But the reason for it is somewhat related to what you are suffering, which is a precedent in Internet history as I learned. While without they doing this, you know what, SON was going to come and for another 50 years of fail management, and of very similar method as father, going EXACTLY in opposite direction of everyone wish! Hope this summary cleared the confusions for some of you, pray for those people! ****sorry for fail English!

  35. For those who stated “don’t have to buy VPS’s in the third world”, (1) I don’t think Egypt can be categorized as “third world” (2) it can also happen in some first world countries as well.

    • Egypt’s a third world country if you define it as being not part of NATO and the Soviet Union:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Third_World

      I wouldn’t call it a Third World developing country….

      What turned me off is how folks mentioned that Egypt had limited uplinks to outside the country. i think what we’re seeing here is proof of that.

      The Soviet Union do not exist anymore.

      @LEA

      Egypt is a third world country.
      Is there democracy? No, they have a dictatoric system.
      Are they a member of NATO? No, they aren’t.
      So why are they one of the best developing countries in Africa? Because Mubarak always supported the EU/US in conflicts and wars with Africa.

  38. Their website and vps are accessible, but I can not make any payment to my due invoice using Paypal.
    While I don’t have account at Alertpay or Moneybookers.
    I hope there is some solution on it :)

      I fully support you Khalid, those who made Paypal disputes are stupid for not looking at the news, it was out of your hands and at government level. You should win all of them Paypal disputes.

    You are an Egypt VPS provider, does you VPS in Egypt or where?
    And what about the swap? Your Xen plans just say about the memory, don’t say sbout swap, does the swap controled us or what?
    Thanks.

      They run from a datacentre in Egypt, once they actually got my VPS up the speeds and reliability are not too bad actually.

      • Bottom of this page mentions the datacenter and provides an IP address to test:

          Well it very much depends on what VPS you order, depending on what package you choose to purchase depends on how many IP’s are assigned to your server.

      Offline again, almost certainly due to the anti-government protests in Cairo today. Presumably the whole country is unreachable…

      It’s the price you pay for hosting in an unstable third-world country, alas. (Speaking here as someone with a VPS with CityNet, BTW.)

      July 8, 2011 @ 11:16 am | Reply
    • Downtime due to a power failure at our data center not due to the anti-government protests in Cairo today.

      We apologize for the down time, service restored and online now.

          failure occured at Power Panel feeding part of our data center.

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.
