LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

AlreadyVPS – $2.99 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Dallas

Tags: , , Date/Time: May 16, 2011 @ 7:15 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated July 2011 — Server has been going up and down throughout the month, and is no longer up as of 28 June. Dead pool.

AlreadyVPS “Legend” (could be his real name), the CEO from AlreadyVPS emailed me to have his VPS hosting company listed here. Their VPS plans start from $2.99/month, and here’s the spec:

  • 256MB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers with Limestone Networks in Dallas TX. From their plans it looks like they are just reselling HostRail’s VPS plans. At a little bit lower price though, although those getting VPS from HostRail would be using their own special discount (which by the way, promo code HOSTRAILMAY will give you the same 1 Power Unit from HostRail for just $1.40/month with recurring discount applied).

Domain registered just last week (May 2011) by Legend in Taiwan, who according to Facebook is a final year high school student running a forum called “Forever Bloody”. Seriously, he needs to register the .com version of the domain before opening shop for business.

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.

        That’s why it gave me an error before. I thought they were down.

    They are using SolusVM? HostRails uses HyperVM by the way.

    • Oops. I am now crossing out SolusVM. Not really sure how I concluded that — they might as well use HyperVM.b

    Can anyone verify the port speed? Pulling from their test files, I got relatively bad speeds:

    These tests were done on my BuyVM.net box…

    Their Switzerland based VPS and Windows VPS produce even worse results. I also tried it from my other VPS hosted with ChunkHost, and my home FIOS connection… Can anyone else replicate the results?

  7. AlreadyVPS already dead? This is what’s shown on their website right now — been like that for 4 days. Delete the site “careless”? Yet still trying to get more people to sign up with a promo code.

    • They get a plus one from me for owning up to what they did and being honest.

      A big -1 though for doing it and not having a backup though.

      • George:

        How about a -100? First they didn’t register the .com domain name, but used it to link to their own site, now they “accidentally” delete their own website? Not a company I’d want hosting my services for sure!
