Alexander, from AlphaVPS, has sent in four OpenVZ offers for the LowEndBox community. These offers are based in Sofia, Bulgaria using Telepoint DC. It is not very common that we feature this location, so we encourage our readers to take a closer look at these offers. Be also informed that all yearly purchases come with free Comodo SSL certificate.

    Expensive, probably that’s why there is no reviews/comments.

    • Hello,

      We are not trying to impress anyone with extremely low pricing. I do think they are reasonable and affordable. We can not be compared with the regular US based host, who is running of a 99$ dedi with a /24 of IPs attached. Network, Hardware and even IPs are a more expensive resource over here.

      Thank you for your input.

        Doesn’t seem so expensive to me…. but what rates would we actually expect to get from these gigabit ports?

        re: do you follow DMCA rules? “They allow everything that’s legal in the EU. “, this essentially includes about 99.99% of the stuff DMCA sends out notices for.

        … anyway, I typically don’t use a whole lot of upstream a month, 2-3 TB maybe, but this is typically something like 50MB/s upstream on Hetzner for 4-6 hours (I cap it at that, if not capped, it’ll go up to 115MB/s), or 25-30MB/s on online.net…. can you give some reasonable sustainable upstream & downstream rate that wouldn’t cause issues?

  2. Is this offshore? do you follow DMCA rules?

    • We do not follow DMCA, as it’s strictly US thing. We are based and registered in Bulgaria.

        Where can we see which things are legal to be hosted in Bulgaria?

        • You can email me over at alex[at]dagroup.bg and we will discuss your hosting needs. Generally, things that are illegal in Europe are illegal in Bulgaria. Everything else is allowed.

  3. Thanks to the LowEndBox team for this great post!

    I will be posting a second looking glass later today, as we have recently launched a second line of services on a different network, still based in Bulgaria, Telepoint DC. Along with those, we have some KVMs available too, so if anyone is interested, please email me over to alex[at]dagroup.bg and I will get you an awesome quote.

    While reasonable cost is nice, a network and configuration that work well will be remembered much longer. As a new customer, I am impressed, everything works well with nill latency to the U.S. While they are not offering Debian 8.1 yet, perhaps they will do so in the future. They get a thumbs-up and a note of appreciation from me.

      Hello BillWebb, can you please email me over at alex[at]dagroup.bg and I’ll see what I can do about Debian 8. I believe it’s supported in our newer node.

    It seems they don’t actually accept bitcoin. At checkout, the only payment options are Paypal and Skrill. :(

    As with many other VPS providers, console access using JAVA is not too operational, unfortunately, so far I have not heard back that they have an operational alternative for console access. A minor point unless you get locked out of your vps. :-)
