LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

AlienVPS – 512MB OpenVZ VPS for $7

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 19, 2010 @ 2:14 am, by LowEndAdmin

AlienVPS Via this WHT offer. If there’s an advice from me today, be very careful when you deal with aliens — at least from all the sci-fi movies I’ve watched over the years, they never come in peace! That does not stop people from adopting this as their company name though. AlienVPS claimed to “abducting the competition” with their offerings that start from $7/month. You get

  • 512MB guaranteed/2048MB burstable memory
  • 25GB storage
  • 1500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

The package does look too much like Virpus’ package that has been on offer for the last 6 months. A reseller perhaps? However in the WHT forums when asked about the IP address, an IP address in Phoenix was given.

Domain was only created last week with WHOIS protection. The ToS page is missing. Just hope that it does not abduct the customers and their data :)

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.

  5. Thanks for the comments guys! To clear some things up we are not a reseller and own our nodes.

    Our servers are located in Phoenix,Arizona with SecuredServers. Hence the trace.

    Over the past few days we have had multiple sign ups and are pleased with the launch, and the Terms of Service has always been up.

    Cheers!

  8. @Omio — it has been stated before that they host their main site with HostGator to isolate themselves from potential issues with their own network. When your VPS is down, you don’t want to see your provider’s web site is also offline due to data center-wide issues.
