LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

2HOST - $59.88/Year 512MB Xen VPS

2HOST As I have stated in my 2009 best experience post, 2HOST was a surprising winner from their previous 5 bucks Xen offer. They have now advertised their new specials on WHT again — a similar package for 1 cent less at $4.99/month as it has been pointed out that it’s $59.88/Year when you go to the package page, which works out to be $4.99/month. You get

  • 512MB memory/1024MB swap
  • 5GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

My previous VPS with them was in St. Louis MO so I assume their new packages are in the same location as well. Their disk space is a bit lacking but I guess it’s due to the use of 15k RPM SAS drives.

    Very nice deal but I NEVER pay for hosting a year in advance (which you need to do in order to get that price).

    My first impressions

    Pros: fast server, fast network, relatively small templates
    Cons: Connection to SolusVM is unencrypted, support tickets are left unanswered for more than 48 hours (I have lodged two simple questions/tasks (1) SSL-encrypted connection to SolusVM, (2) rDNS for my IP), lack of several important modules — running APF firewall is impossible.

    I also believe that the specifications are out of date.

    They state the following on the ORDER page:

    #0 512MB XEN VPS Special – 24/7 INSTANT ACTIVATION
    512MB Dedicated RAM
    5,000MB Dedicated HDD
    VPS Management Panel
    1,000GB Bandwidth

    They seem to have doubled the Traffic.

    Thanks, Johan. SSL-encrypted SolusVM has been enabled. Also, APF is possible after some minor changes.
