Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

XenVZ – £0.99 OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 19, 2009 @ 5:31 am, by LowEndAdmin

XenVZ Could this be the cheapest VPS ever? Maybe, but it’s indeed very low end. XenVZ, the UK hosting company that offers both Xen and OpenVZ virtual servers, is posting on WebHostingTalk some OpenVZ servers starting at 0.99 British Pound (USD$1.64/month)! You get:

  • 32MB guaranteed/48MB burstable memory
  • 1.5GB storage
  • 10GB/month data transfer

You need to prepay £5.94 for 6 months with coupon code WHT310809-1. Obviously you will not be able to run cPanel on it :) Even PHP via FastCGI + a light weight web server might struggle on it — but would be fun to give it a try.

    I contacted them, they refunded me and i ordered the Nano plan..

  3. XenVZ are now $16.20 for even a tiny 64Mb VPS so SFAICT they no longer qualify for listing.

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.
