LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

1CheapHosting – $6.30 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 12, 2010 @ 7:59 am, by LowEndAdmin

1CheapHosting Via this WHT offer. Yes this is yet-another cheap hosting offer, because it says so on its domain name — 1CheapHosting.net. Using promo code 30whmx to get 30% off recurring discount which brings down the monthly cost to $6.30/month for the following virtual server

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 100Mbps unmetered bandwidth
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are with Turnkey Internet in New York. 100Mbps unmetered could potentially mean 30TB/month of data — although somehow I doubt you will be able to pull that on this low end VPS. Now the company itself — the about page says that it was part of the “RH Groups” which I have idea what that is. It was founded this year and the domain was registered 3 months ago, with WHOIS protection. Half of the links on the web site is not working or as temporary place holders. Two name servers of the domain are on the same box… Would you trust your sites with them?

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.

    It isn’t 100mbit unmetered. You get anywhere from 5mbit to 10mbit and it’s probably capped speeds at that :P

  2. Yes I do see some very confusing web pages — on their website the same package only has 150GB/month data. Maybe that’s their way of saying 100Mbps port but capped at 0.5Mbps :P

    Even if you follow the WHT links, they mention BW limits, not quite 100mbit unmetered :P

  4. Unmetered Bandwidth on 100 Mbps <- WHT

    5 Mbps Unmetered on 100 Mbps <- Site

    I highly doubt that was a typo while making the ad thread :P

    @LEA,

    Just out of interest, how do you know the 2 name servers are on the same box? I can see they are consecutive IPs….

  6. @Paul — telnet to port 25 of both IP, and the welcome message from both IP says “node1.1cheaphosting.com”. You get the same hostname as well when you connect to cPanel port on both IP.

    5 Mbps Unmetered on 100 Mbps <— why tell the backbone speed? your isp don't say its on a xxx bit connection, only that you get xx speed

  8. “””Node setup with LVM, no worry about oversell!”””

    I find this statement extremely hilarious for some odd reason.

    • Hold the fire there! I usually wait for a provider to disappear for a week to declare them dead :)
