Nancy from 5ite.com sent us a congratulations email on the transition after the DDOS attacks and let us know at the same time that 5ite.com has listened to their customers demand for additional nodes and IPs so recently they added Seattle to their locations.

To get things started in Seattle, Nancy offers the LEB community a spring promotion at that location, if you sign up and want to use Chicago instead of Seattle as location send a ticket through their support and your VPS will be moved there. However, Nancy lets us know that they are trying to phase that location out, it was a location that was inherited from the previous owner of 5ite.com. Story and links about the sale can be found here from January.

Nancy is also letting us in on a little “secret”, 5ite.com is checking out another location in Ashburn, Virginia and don’t be surprised if we would get a similar offer ones that goes live ?!

Anyway, here is the spring promo package!

30 GB of premier disk space
3 TB of super fast bandwidth
384 MB of guaranteed RAM
512 MB of Burstable RAM
CPU: 1 Core
1 dedicated IP included
No Coupon Code required
just select the promo listed here

Test ip for Seattle here: 216.18.231.50

The previous/existing coupon offers (25%-30%off) on LEB all still work, however, those coupons do not apply to this exclusive offer.

    This is going to be your second LEB offer I have bought.

    I’m in the process of paying now I hope you’ve fixed your API for Alertpay.

    “$5.57/mo OpenVZ 256MB in Seattle or Germany”

    yet
    “384 MB of guaranteed RAM
    512 MB of Burstable RAM”

    and
    “Test ip for Seattle here”

    so
    – where’s Germany?
    – where’s “256 MB”?

    • Yep, the promo is for Seattle- but shoot us a support ticket, and we’ll get it taken care in Germany too. Thank you!

    What is premier about the disk space? What is super fast about the bandwidth?

    • Also interested, I was unable to find the port speed listed, the phrase ‘Super Fast’ means nothing to me, your fast might be my slow!

      Well….

      If the disk space is premier has its oversold by 150%

      and bandwidth is super fast because if you got attacked it’s nullrouted in a FLASH!

    Sorry to say this, but it seems like the offer is over already. I follow the link and it just redirects to https://cp.5ite.com/cart.php with lots of poorly formatted offers all worth $9.99/mo

    Seriously, having landing pages like these in 2012… you have to reeeealy hate what you do.

  7. How safe is it ordering on your site now since you’re running WHMCS? Wouldn’t have been worried before but now after Monday’s debacle…..

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
