    Hi, you posted “Please let us know if you have any questions/comments and enjoy!”

    (1) Can you add 30xIPv6 or 50xIPv6 ADDRESSES free with these deals ?
    OR, Can you add one single IPv6 /64 SUBNET for the VPS ? (a IPv6 /64 SUBNET has 18-Quintillion IPv6-Addresses).

    (2) Do you setup PTR/RDNS(return-value) via support-ticket ? or Can your VPS-management-panel allows to completely setup the PTR/RDNS return-value ? Do you support both IPv4 & IPv6 RDNS setup ?
    MAIL-Servers need WHITELISTED IP-address & correct FCrDNS (PTR/RDNS/return-value/answer-value) setup, to send emails into INBOX or else sent-out emails are either totally REJECTED or placed into SPAM/TRASH folder by email receiving MAIL-Servers. A VPS-“SERVER”-Provider MUST SETUP CORRECT PTR/RDNS(Return-VALUE) FOR IP-ADDRESS.

    (3) If your assigned (primary) IPv4 is BLACKLISTED ( marked/shown by any one of the BLACKLIST(BL) DATABASE(DB) Group/Company listed here: https://www.dnsbl.info/dnsbl-database-check.php ) then:
    (3a) Do you issue a new WHITELISTED IPv4 ? or (3b) Do you communicate-with (and submit BL-DB removal-form or email to) EACH of the BL-DB group to remove each of the blacklisted IP-adrs ? or (3c) Do you only allot/assign BL-IP-address AS-IS to a Crippled-VPS ? So you leave all (BL-DB removal) related steps+decisions on the User/Client, and let client decide if Stay/Leave or Communicate themselves with BL-DB groups to remove IP from BL.

    Without a WHITELISTED IP-address & a CORRECT FCrDNS (PTR/RDNS RETURN/ANSWER-VALUE, and A/AAAA dns-record), a VPS is NOT-USABLE as a MAIL-SERVER, So such “VPS” is a CRIPPLED-VPS, not actually a VPS.

    EXTRA NOTES:
    VPS-Providers can keep their IP-address WHITELISTED in advance : 1st assign it a rDNS/RDNS similar to “unassigned.vps-provider.com” (do not use the default RDNS from AUTHORITY, which includes IP-address-numbers & AUTHORITY domain-name) and Set a short-time-period TTL (something 2 to 12 hours), and Keep the IP-address isolated from any further use (other than DNS-settings & EMail-receive purpose), Create a MAIL-server for the “unassigned.vps-provider.com”, Create “postmaster” & “admin” users in that MAIL-server, and Send blacklist removal-request to each of the Blacklist-Database(BL-DB) group (for that IP-address) and Wait until IP-adrs is removed from all BL-DBs. When a IP-address is assigned back to a new user/client then it’s PTR/RDNS RETURN-VALUE (Answer-Value) must be IMMEDIATELY changed (with TTL value of 3 to 12 hours initially) into same as VPS-hostname when purchase order was placed (or Setup the RDNS return-value into the client’s MAIL-server hostname, when new user/client requests-for-it, or when MAIL-server-app’s hostname is different than the VPS-hostname but still under client’s own domain-name), & A correct RDNS return-value also clearly indicates who is the new holder user of that IP-address and who is it assigned-to and who is responsible for all the activities done thru the usage of it. If IP-address is not-used for sending any SPAM/Advertisements/etc emails (or not-used for MALWARE-sending/hosting/distribution) purpose for 1 to 3 years then such IP-address usually gets auto-removed from blacklist, or usually will be removed from blacklist very-quickly after submitting a (single) removal-request. So VPS-providers should not re-use (assign) a IP-address back until 1 to 3 years has passed, if IP-address has been marked as Blacklisted once. And finally instruct new-user/client of that IP-address to either run an uninfected mail-server-app, or allow clients to use VPS-provider’s MAIL-FORWARDING server. BL-DB groups can place a IP-adrs back into BL-DB (after 30-days, after initial removal) if group’s scanners/monitors find out that IP-adrs is using wrong DNS (MX,PTR,TXT,etc) records or wrong MAIL-server settings or sending SPAM/MALWARE/etc.

    @Erik Ashfolk – per their ToS mail servers of any kind are not permitted.

      just checked their ToS, its allowed now.
      quoting “Sending emails to customers subscribed to your services is allowed by us.”
      they do allow MAIL-servers, they are just warning us to not-abuse it in anyway.

    This is obviously to good to be true right? That’s insane low price. Can’t find anything on company. Either oversell reseller boxes into cripplingly speeds. Or fold the company just after they are out of refund range.

    If someone has and is using them should let me know how it is and maybe link a hosted site.

    Super cool.
    Still I will need IPV6 and IPV4 per CPU so not usable for me.

    I just bought the 4GB VPS, chose Paypal for payment, did not prompt for further process, it then flagged the service as “FRAUD”. I already contacted the support few minutes ago.

    I logged in from a legit IP in the US and did not use VPN.

    It’s on ColoCrossing, so no IPv6. Yet disk and network I/O is very good so far. Hope they won’t oversell.

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.
