LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

ArabicaHosting – $4.50 512MB OpenVZ VPS in New Jersey

Tags: , , Date/Time: October 17, 2011 @ 12:49 pm, by LowEndAdmin

ArabicaHosting Another new provider post — Scott from Arabica Hosting emailed me their LowEndBox special on their OpenVZ plans. Use coupon code LOWENDBOX to get 50% off recurring discount. That means “VPS128” — $2.50/month, “VPS256” — $3.75/month and “VPS512” — $4.50/month. Direct link to sign up VPS512, and this is what you will get

  • 512MB guaranteed/1280MB burstable memory
  • 40GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • 1x vCPU core
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in New Jersey according to Scott’s email, but test IP wasn’t included.Domain was registered last month, makes it a very new provider. Sign up links (ClientExec) weren’t using SSL, although SSL works using an invalid certificate.

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.

  3. To keep up with the demand we’ve had we’re adding another server to our lineup.

    If your account hasn’t been provisioned yet, it’s because we flagged them to not go onto a node that was beginning to get full already. They’ll all be provisioned within the next few hours when the newest server comes online.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask here.

    Thanks!

      I get oddly high ping to it from my server at voxel in NY, and traceroute says ‘mia2’? Also, what is kazetech.com?

        That’s actually an incorrect IP… I copied it from the wrong window I was working in. One in nJ is 66.23.237.154. Sorry about that…

      How to order? I can only see monthly option.

      • Arabica Hosting:

        Would you prefer to pay yearly? I’ll add the option in the billing system if you’d like.

    Tested with 128/1G plan, the I/O speed goes between 35-38mb/s, could be improved.
    Server spec is Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E31220 @ 3.10GHz , 4 cores
    Fast ticket response, not familiar with ClientExec, but after a while, it was simple.
    for $2.50, I’d recommend this box.
    Good deal.

      I’ll add a yearly billing option, but at the moment we’re struggling to keep up with the current demand and are busy restocking our VPS’s. We should have more available within the next few days.
