Updated February 2012 — Website is no longer connecting. I believe the business might have long gone. FAIL.

Atelra Via this WHT offer. Atelra is currently having a summer blowout sale offering 25% off to their Linux Virtuozzo VPS packages! So for their Iron package, that’s $5.96/month and you get

  • 128MB memory
  • 5GB storage + 2GB backup
  • 250GB/month data transfer on Gbits network
  • Virtuozzo

From our previous post on Atelra, their facilities are in Denver/Englewood CO. You can get more info about the owner from the previous post. It is a properly registered LLC in Colorado (ID=20081258904). So even though the web design might not be all that flashy, but at least it looks like a legitimate 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.

    I got a win vps in atelra.com 2 months ago, factly the price of their vps is low enough, but their servers sometimes down (1-2 times per week)… If atelra can make their server more stable and guarantee the uptime, their service is valuable.

  2. Lookie, the State of Colorado has a Kids’ page. ;)

    In case anyone wants to do a lookup, http://www.sos.state.co.us/biz/BusinessEntityCriteriaExt.do and enter 20081258904 into the second field, the ID one. Comes right up but not with a link that others can use.

    The address listed appears to be a home address in a rather nice neighborhood.

  4. @zenglilium, you don’t mention how long their servers are down for. Once or twice a week for a few minutes may be within their allowed downtime.

    I’ve had a Windows VPS in Atelra since March 2010. It’s definitely not a good service. The server restarts at least once every day most of the days. And there are some periods in which the server is down for a couple of hours every single day. There are some periods in which the server is up for many days without interruption, but that’s very uncommon.
    Server bandwidth is not something out of this world, but I guess it’s decent (I don’t have numbers right now, sorry).
    They always answer my support tickets complaining about the server being down, but they usually take some time, generally some hours or a day.
    Currently my server is down, and has been down for over 48 hours. I’m sure there has been some sort of important issue because something like this has never happened before. And still no news about what happened.
    Basically Atelra low-end VPS is an unreliable service you may want to get if you can live with having the server down some moments every day most of the days, never knowing exactly when that will be.

    This vps container is dead, and never trust their service and promise.

  7. Anyone still with them? They are currently having a 70%-off-everything which makes the deal very attractive…
