LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

AppVZ – $6.65 512MB OpenVZ or KVM VPS in Germany

Tags: , , , Date/Time: June 29, 2011 @ 5:43 am, by LowEndAdmin

AppVZ Duc from AppVZ emailed me their new 30% off recurring discount promotion. Coupon code is 30JULY, which would expire at on 30th of July. Combine that with their “CheapVPS” package to bring the price down to $6.65/month. Here is the sign up link.

  • 512MB memory (768MB burstable memory for OpenVZ)
  • 20GB storage
  • 400GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ or KVM

On the ordering page, OpenVZ has been marked as “Recommended” although I believe many here would rather use KVM. Servers in Germany in either Düsseldorf (test IP: 81.30.145.161) or Nuremberg (188.40.68.114). They are one of the first one offering KVM here back in August last year. IPv6 might be available according to this blog post. A Vietnamese company that has been around for 2 years.

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.

        If you copy/paste the text to Google Translate, it translates perfectly.

        Interesting points:
        When customers register domain names in AppVZ.com, consumers would understand that AppVZ.com agent provides domain name registration of a formal, legally, so all domain names are the property of AppVZ <- WTF? Probably something lost in translation?

        They also guarantee 99.9% uptime, but will compensate only if the downtime exceeds 1%. Basically, it's 99% then?

        Everything else is pretty much standard I suppose …

        • No copy and paste on a locked down terminal.

          I’ve seen providers who retain all rights to domains that they register for their clients. Usually we see it when the customer is moaning somewhere because they left that provider and are trying to transfer the domain and the former provider won’t allow it.

        • @vedran: That’s correct! :D That mean they have all right to sell or extend the domain if it expires :D

  3. You can test IPv6 by command:
    Linux: ping6 -c 4 appvz.com
    Windows: ping -6 appvz.com
    Now, our site can connect by both IPv4 and IPv6

    IPv6 VPS now available on Nuremberg with OpenVZ base, on future all VPS will be assigned a IPv6 address

    Yes, Tun/tap is available

  7. installing applications made load average up to 6-7? that’s weird

    July 18, 2011 @ 2:48 am | Reply
    • For simple applications, having a load of 6-7 while installing is definitely not normal, but it completely varies on what application your installing.

      Best,

    • Perhaps it’s bad I/O. Have you done a dd test?

      July 18, 2011 @ 5:33 am | Reply
    • Installing mysql using yum won’t take that high. And yes, it’s bad I/O, I’ve shut it down and asked for refund, but not being refunded yet
