AlienVPS – $6.30 512MB OpenVZ VPS

AlienVPS Via this WHT offer. Recently launched AlienVPS is now offering 10% off recurring discount with promo code abducted10as, which brings down their “UFO 1” unmanaged VPS package to $6.30/month. It comes with

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

Servers are with SecuredServers.com in Phoenix AZ. It was a pretty good package when I first reported it 2 weeks ago, and with the discount it just gets a bit cheaper. I have also taken a look at the ToS page this time, and they are allowing IRC connectivity — possibly both server and client.

I wasn’t that impressed with the rough edges last time, so I decided to investigate a bit more. There appears to be 3 users answering the queries on that WHT post — LM-AndrewS the O.P., jtaM the 17yo co-founder and Mr. Obvious the WHT veteran — all from different locations. LM-AndrewS, the Web Designer/Tech Geek guy here, has a pretty impressive website (actually most websites look impressive comparing to LowEndBox.com :) and he has also designed LinuxManaged under his portfolio. Yes, that LinuxManaged which never had its website launched, and somehow was related to BreezeHost later on.

Maybe just another web hosting opera that needs to be uncovered.

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.

  3. @Robinhood Why host it on one of the nodes, when you can host it off network and don’t have to worry about it going down?
