      What? The last 3 posts isn’t related to CC.

    • The Catalyst Host offer is not CC. We are our of CoreXChange Incero. So I would not like to be placed within that general statement of the last 3 offers. Since it doesn’t stand true to my brand.

  4. Can I use 100% disk on this offer? And is it really SSD or just cached?

      They claim in post that it’s pure SSD:

      “Their servers are loaded with an E3-1270v2 CPU, 32GB RAM and 8x 240GB Intel 520 SSD’s RAID10 and are located in Buffalo, NY, USA.”

    Curious as to your TOS. Your TOS states the following:

    “We ask that all users adhere to our fair usage policy in which users should not exceed more than 20 GB (20480 MB) storage usage for storage of files.”

    Can you elaborate how you can offer 50GB of space on a plan but limit users to 20GB?

      The offer has a link to Aim2Game at the top but TOS to a2ghosting. Both offer the same packages but under a different TOS, Aim2Game TOS has the fair use policy that I quoted. I guess it doesn’t apply to the a2ghosting offer. Got confused with the link at the top of the offer :P

      • SkylarM:

        The TOS you agree to on signup via WHMCS is on the aim2game website (a2ghosting order link redirects to aim2game, you go to signup and the Terms of Service you agree to include that clause). There we go. Thought complete, just took 3 posts to do it I guess. Sorry for excessive posting, just wanted clarification.

          This is where branding can get confusing. Title, post, and almost everything links to Aim2Game. Only the TOS is linked to Aim2GHosting. This is so misleading. Be careful, now even LEB has traps!

            Sorry, didn’t notice that. I just copy-pasted the link from the ticket. Fixed it now :-)

          • SkylarM:

            @Maarten Kossen, was still hoping for clarification on the policy. They are “selling” 50GB of space but you are only allowed to use 20GB of the storage? That doesn’t sound right, but that is what their TOS states.

    Yawns. Another shell company. Same company as VPSAce, SSDVPS, VPNCast and VPSAce. http://imgur.com/a/wx2CG

    These shell companies have been featured, what, 14 times on LEB since March?

    Boring.

      well my SSDVPS is running awesome … can’t really complain.

        No reason to complain unless you’re a provider who doesn’t get be listed because you’re not friends with the owner of this site.

        It’s unfair that one individual is given preferential treatment over others just because Jon has vested interest in their shell companies.

    Does Aim2Game allow 100% cpu usage on their VPS servers?

    • This is a OpenVZ VPS, for windows you would need either Xen or KVM.

  13. I tried to sign up and spoke to chat support, they said if I later upgrade to 4GB ram I “should still get the discount”, but when I tried to check out with 4GB the code say it doesn’t work, and the chat support said it has expired.

    Suspect the tech support doesn’t know what he is talking about, does anyone know what happens if you upgrade resources?

    Nice server runs fast, does not seem oversold at all. Network is quick, runs a minecraft server like a boss with multiverse and 4 worlds on only 2gb ram NO LAG!

  16. vpsvps:

    An E3-1270v2 CPU has four cores, so with two cores per VPS a single-CPU physical server would only support two virtual servers, assuming the CPU is not oversold. With 2 GB per VPS, the remaining 28 GB of RAM of the physical server would be wasted. If the host box has two CPUs, it would support four VPSs with this plan and 24 GB of RAM would be wasted. If the RAM is e.g. 90% utilized, one box can support 14 VPSs with this plan (leaving 4 GB for host OS) but every VPS would only get 1/4 or 1/2 of a CPU core (depending on the number of CPUs in the host box), not the 2 cores advertised.

      This is OpenVZ. Everything can be and is oversold. When they say 2 CPU cores that means you have the ability to use up to 2 CPU cores but these cores are not dedicated to just you. They can be used by others on the node as well. Same goes for the ram.

        And @vpsvps no reason to point any of that out since it’s (probably) clearly spelled out in their fair-share policy in the Terms of Service, and almost every VM deal on this website is like that. Oversold means you can burst when you need to.

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.
