Whilst 24khost were founded in 2010, this is their first listing on LowEndBox; however if you’re a LowEndTalk community member or you read the DMCA post, this is likely not the first time you’ve heard about them. To cut a long story short, 24khost were sent an unsolicited email from LimeStoneNetworks which he subsequently posted on LowEndTalk. Some people considered it to be spam and others dismissed it as nothing more than LSN trying to be helpful, however LimeStoneNetworks subsequently threatened him and sent LowEndBox a DMCA takedown notice. In the end, after mounting pressure from WebHostingTalk, they apologised to 24khost but not to the community.

With VPSGrid, 24khost provide data mirroring, High availability, Auto-failover and load balancing which enables them to keep your server running at peak performance. 24khost also offer SSD caching which increases I/O performance by up to 5000 IOPS.

24khost are active on LowEndTalk and have posted quite a few offers since joining in July. They accept payments via Google Checkout or PayPal. They offer a full 7 day refund policy on VPS services. You can check their Terms of Services and Acceptable Use Policy for more information.

    Hello, what are the specs of the Nevada node? Does it have IPv6 (w/rDNS support)?

    • We don’t offer ipv6 yet. It is in the works. All locations have nodes that are either hex or dual quad core servers.

  2. Cool,

    I’ve signed up to check that control panel. The SSD caching sounds good too.

    Good luck with your offer mate :)

    I’ve been a 24khost customer for 3 months now, with an openvz virtual server in Vegas. No issues. Good support.

    disk test: dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync
    resulted in: 159 MBytes/sec

    Each core is a Xeon L5420 core on my node.

      it is instant setup, you did something wrong, everything works fine for me.

      • Maybe it’s instant when you pay via Paypal. I paid via Google Checkout and it’s been around an hour. I guess Google Checkout is manual (makes sense as payments have to pass a fraud risk)

        Look forward to testing it!

  6. I do apologize this is taking a while but this is the busiest we have ever been. All orders will be fulfilled within the next 24 hours. Also all orders are manually reviewed and are not auto setup.

    • Agreed, signed up today at 2PM, still waiting. Google Checkout requires a fraud check by them regardless, so I’m fine waiting. Thanks for keeping us updated.

      @Yakov, I accept Google Checkout as well, I’ve never had more than 3 hours before *Google* verified it, unless the information was way off. You might want to stick to PayPal. I do agree however, 2Checkout is definitely works with overseas verifications easier.

    I got the worst possible service from them. Signed up, received a message saying I would receive a phone call with a PIN to activate my account. The call never came, so I opened a support ticket. The response I received in totality was

    “Your account is marked as fraud. Due to the issues we will not be able to provide you service.”

    So my account is marked as fraud immediately upon creation, totally locking me out? Nice. Also I have no way to work around this? Great. And you’re refusing to offer me any help to rectify the situation? Perfect.

    To make things even better, I continued my conversation with them, and got this nice little tidbit:

    “We have decided that based on the price we charge that it is not worth it to do phone verification.”

    So apparently they feel lying to customers is fine.

    By the way, the signature on all these messages was from the CEO. I can’t recommend avoiding them strongly enough.

    • We showed that you would have had to signup via proxy server, as your ip shows 1300 miles away. And maxmind rated based on that your on their email list you at a 70% chance of being fraud. That is what we are going to go by.

      • Also I know some other clients were helped by Maarten.

        “And maxmind rated based on that your on their email list you at a 70% chance of being fraud”
        This isn’t even coherent English. I’m trying to give you the benefit of the doubt, but holy cow. Being unable to string together a coherent sentence hurts your credibility so much.

        I guess if Maarten is going to help me, that’s your prerogative, but I’m done dealing with this.

  9. My credibility is just fine. We chose not to service you as a client due to what maxmind advised us. For a $3.95 vps, to do a call that costs money is not worth it. Specially when maxmind reports you as a 70% chance of fraud. You exist on thier email list of people who are likley to be a fraudster. Sorry that is what we are going to go by.

      You missed the “Reply” link by my comment. Also, an individual usually doesn’t determine their own credibility.

      Please take my advice regarding not lying to your customers about placing a call, considering in fact you have no intention of doing so. Too bad I won’t be your customer, I’ll just find another VPS provider on this fine website.

      • hope your new provider is happy with a 70% chance of fraud.

          Wow, I was about to buy a VPS from you, but you’re being a complete Dick to this Ryan guy. Dude.

        • How am I being a Dick by protecting my business by not allowing someone who cannot pass a fraud check on my systems?

          I’ve been “flagged” by maxmind when working with my clients. Maxmind works both ways, Ryan. You are seeing exactly how important you are when it comes to the provider supporting you. When providers (I hesitate to call them companies) use maxmind to make a decision for them, I see it as a window into their “business”. I believe they can’t afford to invest a moment in you, because they simply can’t afford a moment. How could they? This business is a race to the bottom.

    PS: I came across this thread when searching LEB by city, for a small vps to write a some code that I wanted to be near a client to test. 24K would have been sufficient but thankfully there is capitalism, and I have all the power.
