24khost were founded in 2010 and have been featured once before. Unfortunately, one of the offers which 24khost sent in never reached the staff – so this is why they haven’t been posted in a while. Reviews on their last offer were mixed but I’ve found this review from Asim. It would be great if you could leave a review if you’re a customer. Another offer, for a 1280MB VPS, is listed below.

24khost accept payments via Google Checkout and Paypal. They provide a 7 Day money back guarantee. 24khost are very active on LowEndTalk and have posted quite a few offers on their. For more information, you can view their Terms of Service & Acceptable Usage Policy.

    I may be a bit stupid but I don’t get it…

    Server 1 is going to cost 48$/year
    Server 2 is going to cost 40$/year
    Server 3 is going to cost 48$/year

    The biggest server here is the cheapest of all 3 ? Woot ?

    I am SOOOOO GLAD to see a 24khost offer. Thanks for the extra effort @Liam.

    I haven’t wrote a 24khost review yet. Overdue.

    I’ve been a customer then left and then returned. So, I’ve been a customer in all three of their locations.

    The metro Chicago location is kinda hit or miss at times. Routing snafus there if you pay attention to that like I do. Saw some throughput issues with greater frequency than I tolerate. Biggest issue? throughput between there and other end nodes around the US. So it just was a tad too flaky for my liking.

    NJ is freaking outrageous location. Severely awesome network. But they aren’t offering out of there on this special. Sorry folks.

    Vegas, well that is Fiberhub. Ho-hum. HE-centric bandwidth which is hit or miss. Personally I get 130ms+ from US East Coast to there. Big clog in Chicago every night. Throughput drops to like 200K. So I don’t use Vegas in the same way… Vegas is an end node for US West Coast users. Fine to US Central where I have real servers it communicates with.

    24k is pretty good though. Some serious throughput you don’t see with many providers (gigabit port). The owner is very active in the community and quick enough on the tickets.

    The locations in order of best to worst at current:
    1. NJ
    2. Chicago/Indiana
    3. Vegas

    Mind the fact that I am US East coast. Vegas is probably just fine for US West Coast and Asian customers. Those Asians tolerate 250ms+ trip times.

    You reselling cloud3k’s offering?

    March 23, 2013 @ 11:53 pm | Reply
    • No, not reselling them. As I have stated we share the master node for the control panel and the manage the nodes for us and the network. Keeps my cost down that way.

        No problem – wasn’t a complaint, btw, just pointing out that it was provisioned as promised, give or take a byte :)

        minecraft@vpsgrid:~$ free

        tmpfs 770M 0 770M 0% /dev/shm

        Clearly I’ve got a bunch of stuff installed and running now (though I didn’t think I’d installed quite that much – 13 hours in and it’s time to for a clean-up already!)

        As an aside I tried using a root password that (amongst others) contained the characters ‘^’ ‘&’ and ‘%’ – the setup process got stuck on ‘executing command’ (though it had actually completed in the background except for setting the root password), and the same thing happened when I tried to reset the password to the same one again. When I reset it to a password that contained none of those characters the process completed as expected. So I guess one or more of those characters causes problems with your setup scripts!

    So how long does provisioning take? I assume you’re all out getting drunk on a Sat night…

      Hi, thanks for the added deals. But I can’t place order, it says “You must enter a prefix for both nameservers”, but there aren’t any textboxes entries for NS.

    • I dont see any quarterly plans on your site. Even the monthly plans available dont offer anything as reasonable as these plans.

    After registering my password got emailed to me in plaintext. I have to admit, that definitely doesn’t leave me confident.

        Mike said “After registering my password got emailed to me in plaintext.”

        Receiving a plain-text auto-generated password by email shouldn’t be an issue because your first order of business after receiving the keys to your shiny new VPS should be to SSH into your server and set your own password (or better yet, generate SSH keys to prevent brute force attacks)
