LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

123Systems – $6.95 for 2x 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 5, 2010 @ 4:14 am, by LowEndAdmin

123Systems Andrew from 123Systems has sent me another interesting offer for the LowEndBox readers. Instead of discount on pricing, they are now offering buy any Linux VPS, get a Linux-256-SolusVM for free. So their cheapest virtual server package costs $6.95/month, and comes with

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

By using promo code ONE256FREE, you will get another VPS for free! Here are some terms and conditions

  • You only get a Linux-256-SolusVM for free, no matter whichever size you purchased.
  • Promo code must be entered to get your free server.
  • Free server remains free for as long as you keep the main server.
  • Offer expires on 11 July 2010.
  • New sign up only.

We actually had some 2-for-1 offers before. They are good for staging server vs. production server. Or web server + DB server. Or production + DR. Or load balancer between the two. The use are endless. A tough call though to choose between this or their other exclusive offer (which is cheaper but requires yearly payment).

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  1. Paying yearly is actually costlier on this plan. not a big deal, just 3.5 cents but i was trying to see if it would be any cheaper.

  3. @Paulmankipu — nope. It is not doubling your plan, but give you their smallest VPS package for free, no matter which plan size you order.

    I’ll have the Linux-1GB-SolusVM and a domain (and yes-my-2k-bug-gravatar-should-be-still-there) I guess, but I need to think more of it, thanks.

  9. Yeah, We get tons of fraud orders from here (Only 1 or 2 actually make it past MaxMind Then the rest don’t make it past 2Checkouts Fraud review). No worries though, the amount of orders we get that are legit out weigh the fraud.

    Well got both of mine yesterday(or day before it, can’t remember…damn summer), boxes are fast and on different nodes(so I can keep redundancy in case one of their nodes goes down).

    Only strange thing is, that they don’t allow Reverse DNS on their Chicago location.

    We are still trying to get the rDNS interface up and running in chicago, It’s fully functional in Phoenix. Once it’s up & running in Chicago then you will be able to use rDNS in that location. Feel free to ask for rDNS on your Phoenix box for the time being though.

    you can always switch to another provider that offers free migration and switch back.
    honestly, I will never understand the way companies offer “new client only” promotion.
    what do you do to keep your current customers then?
