How to Enable Google’s TCP BBR on a Linux VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 14, 2020 @ 12:00 pm, by Jon Biloh

How to enable Google's TCP BBR on a Linux VPS

This article was contributed by Dustin B. Cisneros of RackNerd – LowEndBox appreciates your contribution as always! Be sure to check out RackNerd’s latest LowEndBox specials if you are looking for a KVM VPS.

Google’s TCP BBR, or “Bottleneck Bandwidth and Round-trip propagation time,” is a congestion control system based on cutting-edge technology. It is the same system used for traffic through Google.com, as well as YouTube. It was the reason that YouTube’s network throughput was increased by 4% annually. Moreover, Google’s BBR also significantly reduces latency as the querying, and queuing delays are minimized.

We have written this guide for you so that you can enable Google’s BBR on your Linux virtual private server.

There would be two steps in the guide, where step 1 can be optional in some instances. Let us start!

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 13, 2020 @ 6:26 am, by Jon Biloh

HostSlick Dedicated Servers

In their own words:

“We run our own AS208046 and are Located in the old KPN tower in Lelystad, Netherlands which is now owned by Cellnex.  The Tower is part of the Dutch Emergency Infrastructure and is one of the only Datacenters in the Area that is above Netherlands flood risks, which makes it a secure place for Customers Data, compared to some other Datacenters.

I’m not only an Entrepreneur but its my hobby and livelong project. 10 Years ago I started with a cPanel/WHM Reseller. Which I moved then to a Dedicated Server in 2012 where we also offered OpenVZ6 VPS. It grow and grow in the years, we rented more and more Dedicated Servers until 2 years ago when we started owning Hardware. Since April 2019 we are selling Dedicated Servers and now we are getting larger and larger.  Running close to 150 Servers. All Servers and Hardware is 100% owned by HostSlick, not some banks or leasing providers.”

Best Asia Optimized VPS and Hosting Providers

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: July 12, 2020 @ 9:00 am, by Jon Biloh

Best Asia Optimized Cheap VPS HostsIf you are looking for an Asia Optimized VPS, whether it be because you are located in Asia, or you have your audience/end-users located within the Asia region and want to provide the best network connectivity to your website/server, then you’ve come to the right place.

In this post, we will outline some of the best Asia Optimized VPS providers in 2020. Some of the qualifications we used to determine the providers to cover in this post include: track record/history, customer reviews, community engagement, network quality, providers/carriers in network blend, latency to Asia (tested using ping.pe), and more.

Generally speaking, VPS’s in the West Coast (i.e. Seattle, Los Angeles, San Jose) should provide a decent latency to Asia given the geographic distance, however for those who are ultra-sensitive to latency – you will want to consider a provider with China Telecom, China Mobile, China Unicom, PCCW, etc within their network blend. Before buying, ask the provider for a Looking Glass (or a test IP/test file) to test the speeds from your location before ordering. Your network experience will always vary from that of your friends for example, so always ask for a test IP before buying!

Community News: TheStack Launches New VPS Control Panel and 5 New Locations

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 12, 2020 @ 3:00 am, by Jon Biloh

As part of LowEndBox’s new “interesting news” series we are publishing, we recently received a submission from @StackNetwork on LowEndTalk. We found their news submission interesting because it includes a new in-house control panel software for their VPS platform, which puts them in a unique position of not simply using SolusVM like so many of their competitors in the industry. Hopefully they continue to develop their in-house system, as doing so will continue to help them stand out in the marketplace. 

TheStack was last featured on LowEndBox in April 2020 with a 4GB KVM offer based in Los Angeles

Here is the announcement we received from them:

Just released: New VPS Control Panel System Enters Production

We’ve worked out a new VPS system with some nice features, such as:

  • Power On/Power Off/Reboot VMs
  • Real-time CPU/Disk/Network graphs
  • HTML5 VNC Console
  • Reset VM password within 1 click without reboot
  • Reload OS from many templates, in a blazing fast speed, and Ubuntu 20.04 LTS has been supported once it’s released
  • Snapshots & Backups
  • Firewall policies

Check out a picture of TheStack’s new VPS Control Panel:

TheStack also wanted to share that they’ve recently launched 5 New Locations for VPS

  • San Jose, CA
  • Chicago, IL
  • New York City
  • Amsterdam, NL
  • Frankfurt, DE”

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 10, 2020 @ 8:49 am, by Jon Biloh

Throughout the past year, you may have noticed more Hybrid Server offerings being featured here on LowEndBox. While this is a relatively new offering so to speak, the LowEndBox staff are working to get in touch with more hosting providers that offer this product to encourage them to create exclusive LEB deals for our readers to enjoy. However, this still leaves the question that some of our readers may be wondering: What is a Hybrid Server? This article, contributed by the folks at RackNerd.com, explains in detail what a hybrid server is, the benefits of a hybrid server, and some example use cases that a hybrid server might be a great fit for.

Interview: Q&A with Low End Talk Moderator Jcaleb (Jonathan Tan)

Tags: , Date/Time: July 9, 2020 @ 10:17 am, by Jon Biloh

Interview with Jonathan Tan, LowEndTalk Moderator

Today we are keeping it in the family, with another interview with the Low End Talk moderator/administration team – this time around it’s Jonathan Tan (aka @Jcaleb). If you’ve not already checked them out over the past few weeks we’ve recently published interviews with current Low End Talk moderator Raindog308 and past administrator Jarland – both are worth the read. Many thanks to Jonathan for taking the time to answer some questions and share a little bit more about his background. So without further delay, here we go!

Tell me about your background? How did you get into IT?

I graduated from De La Salle University in 1999 with a degree in Computer Science. I experimented early in my career, trying different things: research assistant in university doing artificial intelligence stuff, 3d graphics programming, mobile game programming back in the days of Symbian, client-server coding with Delphi, mainframe stuff, and web programming. After around 5 years, I ended up sticking with Java development. I am now a developer in a multinational fintech company doing buy-side software.

Aside from my day job, I do other programming stuff for fun. I do PHP stuff, wordpress plugins and themes, all for my personal needs.

Low End Box Offers Then (2009) And Now (2020)

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 8, 2020 @ 6:19 am, by Jon Biloh

Back in 2009 the original founder of Low End Box, “LEA” published an early version of what became the deal marketplace of Low End Box. That page has been inactive for years and years because it is not commercially relevant anymore, but is certainly interesting to check out to see just how far we have come in the past 11 years in the hosting industry.

Specifications have grown by 10x to 100x and prices have come down at the same time. Over that same period of time the traffic on Low End Box has gone from only a few hundred visitors a month to thousands a day. Add into the mix the traffic going to Low End Talk and the combined annual traffic on Low End Box and Low End Talk is 3800% higher now than in 2009.

Take a look at the deals published in September 2009 – 11 years ago!

 

Now fast forward 11 years to an offer review published in May 2020 to compare (a lot has changed):
