Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

NordicVPS – $15/Year 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Fremont Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: October 6, 2010 @ 1:10 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated February 2012 — It’s long time coming, but NordicVPS has finally bite the dust. Website is no longer working on 24 January 2012. Bye!

NordicVPS Adam from NordicVPS has emailed me about them getting their California nodes ready. Same offer as last time,

  • OVZ128-LEB (Sign up link)
  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 600GB/month data transfer
  • OVZ256-LEB (Sign up link)
  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • $35/Year
  • OVZ512-LEB (Sign up link)
  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • $5.95/Month

These new servers will be in Hurricane Electric’s Fremont 1 facility, and will be using Xeon 5620 with RAID10 drives. Test IP: 68.68.96.10.

Just a note that for 2 cheaper plans these are annual payment only so make sure you know what you are getting into and remember to make regular backups :) The plans and pricing pretty much match what BuyVM has, and now they are in the same location as well. Hmm, did I smell a little bit of competitions out there?

    I have ordered one from them 2 days ago, it’s stable and very fast.

    I’m happy with it, but it does not support pptp vpn, Nordicvps admin, are you gonna upgrade the kernel? Thanks.

    Hi.
    Like i see all nodes there are unstable (see http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/buyvm-15year-128mb-openvz-vps-is-back/ comments). I see some satisfied and not so satisfied comments there. So in any case. Are you planing on getting your ass kicked by careless users? Do you offer refunds for unsatisfied customers. And do you plan on expanding you business and use all sorts of outdated racks in your network? Best regards

    • Please note that we only experienced problems with our XEN / HVM nodes in Germany because Hetzner does not support XEN but we done hard work to make it work on their servers – also their network has been unstable causing latency problems.

      • We will release a OpenVZ server in Germany with IPv6 and depending on the feedback and general experience we will release IPv6 to all VPS’s , since we already have IPv6 subnets assigned to each server.

          This would be great. Especially german IPv6 as it’s more rare to get them as those fremont v6 addresses.

  7. I get ~ 175ms pings to both BuyVM and NordicVPS at he.net in Fremont, CA from the Philippines. Since I’ve already got a BuyVM vps in Fremont and a NordicVPS in Germany, I’m thinking I’ll sit this one out. It looks like a good deal that should be popular, though.

  12. anon:

    Some nodes at NordicVPS have following problems:
    – CPU MHz shown is misleading, same process will take double CPU resources compared to other VPS providers
    – some older nodes have very poor i/o performance (12-20 mb/s) and they won’t upgrade it, nor they will move clients to new nodes, unless they request it

    If you are lucky you may get on a good node, but you never know how long performance will last. I think they are overselling both OpenVZ and Xen nodes.

        • We will accept private usage of ptunnel but we reserve the rights to suspend a VPS that hogs all resources (CPU, disk I/O and network) because of usage of proxy software.

    • can i install Zend and APC on your VPS

      Yes you can. It’s a VPS and you have root access so you can pretty much install anything the operating system allows. However with 128MB memory, APC/Zend can be a bit of stretch.

        • We are an unmanged VPS provider. You can install ZEND and APC yourself – just Google for tutorials / guides.

          E.g here is one random from Google on APC on CentOS : http://mrfloris.com/vbulletin/installing-apc-on-centos-5-server/

          We provide you with full root access — you are only restricted by the (RAM( memory allocation. For a system like SocialEngine I would suggest you upgrade to our OVZ512 plan.

    • rDNS can be set via the VPSManager (Select VPS -> Select “IP Addresses” -> Click on [edit] and Change rDNS for your IP. Changes are live instantly.

      We are working on a semi-automated approval/activation for TUN/TAP as well.

          Automated rDNS is enabled for all VPS’s in Fremont,US but not for servers in San Jose or Los Angels or Germany.

      I opened another ticket last night about my VPS being sluggish to respond and got a fairly boilerplate response a few hours later.

      Sounds like they are a bit busy, touch wood it improves :-)

          I heard that something like “How do I install Apache” is a surefire recipe to get account closed and money refunded over there at BuyVM, and indeed, cheap VPSes cannot be expected to be ‘managed’ or offer general OS/software support.
          But tickets about ‘my VPS is down’ or provider-only controlled stuff like rDNS (perhaps limiting the latter to reasonable amount, like at most 1 request for rDNS per month) should be still answered reasonably quickly, no matter the price.

          November 11, 2010 @ 1:40 pm | Reply
        • @rm Yes you are right and we aim to cover the most requests and are working trough the queue at even faster phase and will get the response time down to far less than today, it should be hours not days.

          We are genuinely sorry for the bad support but we work to cut down the response time to a minimal soon as possible.

          rDNS IPv4: Customers in UK and US can set this via VPSManager, Germany will follow soon.
          rDNS IPv6: Manual entries can be done for German VPS’s but not yet for UK or US – but will follow soon (2011?)

      Our servers in Germany run @ 3.33 Ghz+ pr core which I think is not valued by everyone — some hosts provide cheap VPS off “old” Core2Quad while all our servers are either i7 975 Extreme Ed. or powered by DUAL (2x) Quadcore XEON 5620s .. both series utilize ultra fast DDR3 RAM not old DDR2 and all servers have RAID10 protected disk setup for max. performance.

    NordicVPS recently had a drive failure in one of their VPS nodes:

    We experince some disks problems on OVZ02  — Its protected by RAID by we suspect one disk has gone dead and we will try to solve this with help from the DC

    I can not tell how long it will take or if they will be any downtime but be aware of potential problem and make sure to have a backup of all your important
    +data!!

    This was 4 days ago, but nothing happened. Such downtimes are frequent (this is the longest so far). Despite this I have a support ticket open since over a month. I guess won’t ever be answered. They also have no SLA.

    I will never pay again for a VPS one year in advance.

  63. We have hired new support staff and they will take care of your tickets.

    OVZ02: (Friday) We asked for a hardware replacement (disk) and they DC sent us link to their Wiki, we had to repeat the request for hardware replacement and suddenly they decide to take down the server, because of some abuse complaints caused by a small number of VPS’s hosted on the server. We always act fast on abuse notifications but still we had to send them some signed papers before they provided us access to the node server but the network was not working, again after few tickets and few hours they fix the network (plugged the server back onto the network)

    Then we had to send new requests for hardware replacement and this caused another short downtime while they replaced the broken disk before the server was finally online.

    The downtown was unexpected and longer than desired. I am sorry for inconvenience caused. We hope this situation would not repeat again.

    But I didn’t realized until now that my VPS would be deleted.
    For some reason it marked as Fraud and refunded 1 week later but nordic didnt even email me or anything. just deleted my VPS out of nothing.

    I spent so many hours setting up that VPS and it’s gone. Thrown away just like that !

    I have two VPS there. In past month i had about 40% uptime. But that is not uptime as expected, they crippled all VPSs on german nodes (they cant pay for servers so they go to few bigger). VPS’s work with one CPU Core at 800mhz because nodes are overcrowded. With that VPS u can’t do anything except for blog… Recently i moved customers to other server and wanted to use vps as seedbox (network is still good 1gbps), but when i do reinstall no vps can boot (but i can ping ip!?). Support don’t respond except for uniform messages like “we are moving VPS to other node”, “Moving failed, expect downtime”… So far they moved mu VPS THREE TIMES (ovz02, ovz03, vm03, vm09). Admin it is time for dead pool… They took our money and when bills came they are nowhere to be found… I lost 70$ with this b-e-e-p company…
