    I tried to put in an order and have failed. The first time the discount did not work and the order failed out. the second time the order just wound not go through. Both orders have been listed as fraud (probably due to MaxMind issues). Trouble tickets error out. Can you please fix my invoice (Invoice #644) so that I can pay you (for a year)?

    Thank you //Terance

    • John:

      Yes, you are correct about the MaxMind issues. Could you send us a billing ticket? I just submitted a test ticket and it went through with no issues.

    Hi – is this a lifetime coupon – so if I upgrade I can keep the discount? When does this expire?
    Also – are you limiting the core frequency or will they run at native E3 speed?
    Anyone have some recent benchmarks? bench.sh or serverbear (current stuff is pretty old).

    • John:


      Yes, the discount is lifetime. If you would like a bigger plan, we can double/triple/etc the resources for double/triple/etc the price. We do not limit core frequency.

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.
