AmeriNOC – $48/Year 256MB Xen HVM VPS in San Diego

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 8, 2011 @ 6:14 am, by LowEndAdmin

AmeriNOC Mike from AmeriNOC emailed me their December offer a few days ago. They have a special coming up for their unmanaged VPS “XEN-HVM 256” as featured here 3 months. It’s now $48/Year with promo code CHEER256. Direct sign up link.

  • 256MB memory
  • 25GB storage (Hybrid HDD in RAID10)
  • 10TB/month data transfer on 1Gbps
  • 1x vCPU core
  • 2x IPv4 addresses
  • Xen HVM/SolusVM

Servers in AIS Data Center in San Diego CA according to their data center page (test IP: 64.6.100.194). AmeriNOC is doing mostly managed services and they have been around for ~10 years. Those are unamanged Xen HVM plans which means you can install from your own ISO. However port 22 is by default firewalled, and you need to either (1) contact the support to whitelist your IP address, or (2) use VNC to access the console to manually change the SSH to a different port, because you can first login. Under their ToS/AUP the restriction listed in ”
1. Lawful Use” seems to be quite reasonable. No mention of proxy or IRC which I presume they are allowed.

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. Any other big ram plan available for the same promo?

    • No, but we do post larger RAM/Resource deals elsewhere, check WHT occasionally, I don’t think it would be appropriate to post those here.

        naah you are reading it right. They operate their own network so bandwidth is not an issue for them. This is another reason that they block port 22 – I guess they don’t want people brute-forcing their servers.

      As this is Xen HVM, you should be able to add any amount of Swap space you wish.

      December 8, 2011 @ 9:21 am | Reply
    • It’s Xen-HVM, hardware virtualization, you control your own swap, it’s not Xen-PV, they work differently.

    • As in their order form, the price is recurring :P But I think the price will be recurring because LEB doesn’t allow one time discount if the price higher than $60/year :D

    Ordered one, and still waiting for activation after one hour.

    December 8, 2011 @ 2:48 pm | Reply
    • As you can imagine, this has been a popular offer, so you will experience a delay in activation as most of the installers require 512 MB RAM to run, which means we have to run it for you then turn it back over.

      As to swap, please refer to this post above…
      Biplab:
      As this is Xen HVM, you should be able to add any amount of Swap space you wish.

      Again, it’s Xen-HVM, it is hardware virtualization, these are not XEN-PV, so please understand that when ordering.

      As to the BW question, yes, they are high BW offers, as listed on the page.

        I have two questions. The installer require 512MB RAM to run, then what if I want to reinstall it since I get 256MB here.
        As to swap, would you please tell me how to add it on a XEN-HVM vps? Thank you so much!

        December 8, 2011 @ 3:20 pm | Reply
        • I did reply to this, but it didn’t post, maybe because I had a link in it, so I’ll try it without the link…

          This really depends on the OS you choose, most tend to choose the the more standard popular OS options, several of which require 512 MB RAM for the standard installer to run. These include CentOS6, SL6, etc. there are options that will install with 256 MB RAM. As to CentOS and doing your own re-installs, try this, (link removed pending approval) or we can always assist with re-installing the OS on these plans as well.

        (e.g. 512ram, 50G, 10TB, 2 to 4 IPV4)

        • Sorry, no, this offer for LEB is for the offer listed, per 256 MB RAM plan. Feel free to contact us if you need a larger plan and we can look at the other promos we have going.

    • We rebranded under AmeriNOC.com at the beginning of 2009. Prior to that, our primary domain was Phatservers.net going back to 2001, there is actually a thread on WHT where this is mentioned a year or or so ago, we had several smaller brands that we acquired from old colo clients which led to the decision to rebrand under AmeriNOC. We registered our ASN with ARIN under A1COLO.com as we originally focused on back end management for colo clients and managed dedicated servers. This allowed for clients to easily run their own hosting networks under us where we managed the network for them. I’ve been a member on WHT since 2002, I have under 200 posts there, we really didn’t target searching for clients there until recently when we moved more into virtualization.

    I changed the SSH port, stopped the iptables process, but still could not log onto my vps via putty. It returned “connection time out” or “connection refused” to me. I built a vpn on the vps, but could not connect to it either.

    I wonder if I could cancel the service and get the refund.

      I done it the easy way let your ip get white listed and then log in

      and issue sed -i “s/22/*your-port-here*/” /etc/ssh/sshd_config && /etc/init.d/ssh restart

      and then you can login on your choosen port without any pain and trouble

      This works for almost any linux

      1) Login to SolusVM Control Panel
      2) Open VNC and then login as root.
      3) Change SSH port to a non-standard port. Edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config file.
      4) If you are using CentOS, don’t forget to update IPTable entries and open port for SSH. Open /etc/sysconfig/iptables file and open correct port. On Debian, you may not need to do anything as, IIRC, iptables is not loaded on default install.
      5) Now reload iptables rules
      iptables-restore < /etc/sysconfig/iptables
      6) Restart SSH service.

      Now you should be able to login via Putty.

          You have to open that file with vi or nano . So actual command should be-

          vi /etc/ssh/sshd_config

          or

          nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config

          Default CentOS installation doesn’t come with nano. You have to install it.

          I suggest you use your favorite search engine and search for topics on “how to change ssh port”, etc.

If what we support doesn’t work for you then you should reply back to that billing ticket and we will cancel and refund the order. My apologies if I have you confused, but that is the only order open right now. for this offer.

    • Hi, there is no hard limit set in stone, beyond what the physical RAM limits would be, however, with that said, we typically base the number of users per node more on server load, CPU usage, etc, etc and tend to leave 30-50% of the resources open as it is common for usage to spike from VPS plans well after they are setup in many cases. I can tell you even with the high BW allocations we have on our VPS plans none of the nodes have had an issue with over saturating a Gig port. As to what you run, we don’t limit that so long as you are following the terms. If it ends up being something that is somehow disrupting the stability of the rest of the node then we will let you know and discuss the options with you.

        RAM isn’t an issue. I just wanted to know if I run something that requires say 100Mbit uplink (assume constantly), would that be an issue? Legal ofcourse.

    Hi AmeriNOC-MD, is there any information about your “hybrid hdd + ssd raid10”?

    ps, Could anyone take a UnixBench and post results here?

    • We currently use the Adaptec Hybrid RAID cards that include SSD NAND flash memory for caching along with enterprise grade hard drives in a RAID10 storage array.

  33. Do you allow running heavy-duty (live) streaming services that may cause lot of traffic, but doesn’t consume CPU/RAM? Like Shoutcast service with 100’s of concurrent listeners?

      Also, the single problem I had with them is that I asked for Ubuntu 11 but their 11 installation has NIC driver issues so they gave me Ubuntu 10 instead. I hope to move to Ubuntu 12 LTS when its available.

        which plan you bought, 256m plan?

        I just bought 512m unmanaged plan, the unbixbench index score final(2 core together), is above 900. It is fine. But the SSD+HDD RAID10 is just fast as common, the iops is about 70.
