  8. Thats a lot of disk for that price. To bad I already have a backup VPS with a lot of storage… Their tweets in WHMCS are a bit weird however, “w00t w00t”, “oh manz paintball toooooo?????”. Added to z1s.org uptime monitoring: http://z1s.org/dashboard/checks/5136268eb51183246703125e

    Signed up at 7 AM EST this morning and my VM is still pending (12 hours later). I have nothing positive to say about the experience so far.

      I put a ticket in just after my initial comment and my VM was provisioned shortly. Fast support. The VM also seems to be very speedy so far.

    I’m curious about this deal. In the TOS, it mentions that you cannot “Run stand-alone, unattended server-side processes at any point in time on the server. This includes any and all daemons, such as IRCD.”. Wouldn’t that prevent using the VPS as a server??? (for example a web server such as Apache?).

      I believe I misread their TOS/AUP (though it isn’t that cleanly organized). What I mentioned earlier seems to only applies to shared or resold services. The only thing that is a downside with this host is the lack of support for Ubuntu 12.04 (since 11.10 support ends next month).

        You should of gotten emails from reliable hosting services providing you with information to log into the host (check your spam folder).

    After working with them for a week, I’ve come to the conclusion that you do not want to request an ipv6 address for several reasons. One of them is that there vm’s run on a older openvz supported kernel, 2.6.18, which lacks essential modules that allow most ip6table based firewalls to work properly. Unless they update their kernel to the latest supported for openvz, 2.6.32, you will not be able to protect your vps on the ipv6 side.

    tldr; firewalls on ipv6 don’t work on 2.6.18

      After talking with their support…they *do* have nodes with 2.6.32. If you are looking to have ipv6 on your vps, make sure you request to be placed on a node with that kernel.

    They have increased the price to $10

  18. Hi Tim,

    The price is still $5, when you add to cart it takes off 50%. Let us know if you are having issues and we can create a custom invoice for you.

    I’ve been with RHS for a few years and they are solid. Jeff M (Greg’s relative?) responds quickly to issues, and there hasn’t been really any except quirks like the billing system would mark my account as suspended despite the timely payment and my VPS instance still runs.

    There are not that many choices for Eastern seaboard location, so I’m glad RHS is around.

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.
