Tags: , , Date/Time: March 3, 2009 @ 1:12 am, by LowEndAdmin

Update Jan 2010: The website appears to be empty and I do not think the company is trading/providing service anymore.

Update Feb 2010: The website is now back but not offering VPS anymore. I’ll stop tracking here.

Bergen Hosting Via this WHT offer, there’s a low end budget VPS on offer at Bergen Hosting. For $4.99 per month you will get:

  • 64MB guaranteed/80MB burstable memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 25GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

Traceroute of their website goes to Future Hosting’s data center at Washington DC. Funny that it says “80MB swap” on their Mini VPS page, although on their plan page they are clearly offering OpenVZ based product.

Update: Looks like the latest offer has moved onto Xen platform.

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.

    We actually decided to hop over to Xen right after we posted that – we are indeed using Xen for this now.

  2. Hi Ken,

    I think it would be a good idea to clearly state what virtualization technology you are using on your website. Don’t you think?
