5ite Andrew from 5ite emailed me about their summer promotion. You can also find the same offer on WHT. Use coupon code SummerVPS to get 30% off recurring discount. Their VZ-1 plan would be $5.57/month after the discount. Direct sign up link.

  • 256MB guaranteed/384MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 3TB/month data transfer
  • OpenZ/SolusVM

You can also choose between Falkstein Germany or Chicago USA on the sign up form. Their previous $5 Germany VPS with huge burstable memory is still available (at least the order form works), and that was a more interesting offer. Andrew has been running VPS hosting there since mid-last year. UK based business.

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.

    Many would disagree that 200 GB (vs 3 TB now) was more interesting. :)

    • Yes depends on what you use the VPS for I guess. Even my main site uses less than 1TB/month across 2 VPS hosting a site with almost 10M PV/month, but that’s mostly text.

      And I think the 200GB would not be less oversold than 3TB, since they probably both plugged into the same circuit anyway (being from the same provider).

        I like having some headroom especially in bandwidth, in case my site gets slashdotted or I need to distribute a large file. Anything less than 500 GB/month just doesn’t give me peace of mind :) Even though normally my website uses a lot less.

    I’ve been with 5ite for a while when running my Round Robin, my German customers love my hosting they get a real fast connection to my website.
    I purchased additional RAM from them and they had a mistake and it said additional when they meant change ram to and they just gave me the RAM additionally.
