LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

5ite – $5.57 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Chicago or Germany

Tags: , , , Date/Time: June 19, 2011 @ 3:38 pm, by LowEndAdmin

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.

    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.
