AllSimple – £3.19 128MB Xen VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: August 20, 2010 @ 7:20 am, by LowEndAdmin

AllSimple Martin from AllSimple Internet Services emailed me about their exclusive offers to LowEndBox readers. Use promo code lowendbox20 to get 20% off recurring discount + double the memory + swap. Their smallest package, “Light”, would end up at £3.19/month (~USD$4.96), and it has

  • 128MB memory/256MB swap
  • 3GB storage
  • 25GB/month data transfer
  • Xen

It is pretty much the same package as previously listed, except the discount + double memory bonus. BlueSquare DC in Maidenhead in UK. Trading as “AllSimple” since 2009 according to its about page, which also contains its business registration info.

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.

  1. Not a lot of disk space and bandwidth – You can get a lot more resources for the same price.

    True Jackk, bu if you can get more resources in Bluesquare for the same price (or Rapidswitch – so we cover the two main UK DCs) then let us know.

    UK hosting is more expensive, but those are both great DCs. If someone NEEDS vps hosting in the UK then they don’t have many providers to choose from.

  3. We are offering our plans on Xen and are able to guarantee the resources that we provide, we do not oversell our features and can assure you that you receive what you pay for.

    We believe the current prices are fair for what you are getting, but we may review our pricing in the future to ensure we remain competitive.

  4. Our Virtual Servers run on Xen, offering the guaranteed resources that you provide with no overselling enabled.

    We believe our prices are currently fair considering the above, but we may review them in the future to remain competitive.

  5. @Gary – I wouldn’t say those are the two main UK data centres. FastHosts, RedStation, UK2.NET, Melbourne, Ice-Colo are all quite popular and established.

    I’m sure there are providers who will provide more in the same DC than this.

    Strange, but I don’t see this as such bad deal. I pay similar to XenVZ.co.uk (hosted at decent Rapidswitch DC) for their taster vps with half less ram, half more bandwidth and I like it very much.
    It’s true that we see some crazy “512MB ram/4$” deals around (mostly at .us or .de DCs) and we’re a bit spoiled because of this but that’s still lowendbox site. If I would need another lowendbox VPS hosted in .uk, I would consider this offer.

    @ Daniel and Jackk, if you can show a considerably better UK package for around the same money, go for it. As a case in point, Daniel’s company host at Rapidswitch. Most hosting companies are based in the same few datacentres in the southeast.

    Yes there are UK datacentres other than the two main ones I mentioned, but most of them have such limited connectivity (connected to the net only on BT or NTL’s backbone? Single point of failure ftw) and/or are crazily expensive.

    AllSimple don’t give nearly enough transfer, but that’s the only thing I could really fault them for.

    I have pruchased off this provider, and not had 1 single issue. quite reliable :)

    The prices are also quite decent compared to other UK VPS providers.
