  7. Last year i signed up for their cheapest plan. After registering the server had some issues with its network. This was solved quicky, and there were no drops after that.

    I’d like to remind you that 64mb ram is a very little amount of RAM. Expect processes being killed without even expecting it, for instance during apt-get commands :p I’ve installed all packages be downloading the .deb and install them with dpkg -i. The same counts for compiling.

    I recommend turning off all services except for those that you use, then your OS uses approximately 8mb RAM :D

    I recently cancelled the vps. Not because I’m unsatisfied, but because I’ve got no destination for it now.

    For hobby-purposes Berry is a great host! I will recommend it to everyone, but be smart but choosing the plan. Keep up the good work, Berry.pw!

    • Oh, added to my comment it may be useful what i used it for: I used it for a teamspeak server, which worked fine. Also a short timei hosted a website with it using nginx, and with low traffic it worked fine.

  9. 2 IPv6 address, you cant be serious, there are trillions trillions trillions of addresses in each block, and you are assigning only 2. Right now my current hosting provider is giving me a /64 block of IPv6 address.

    I have a couple of questions regarding bandwidth. Is that per year or per month? (I would think it’s per year, but just wanted to make sure). What if you go over the allocated bandwidth? Does the VPS environment go down? Is there an extra charge?

    • Bandwith limit applies monthly ;)

    signed up for service. waited 5 hours for deploy. finally got info. logged in; passwd; /etc/init.d/sendmail stop; exit. came back a day later and the service was cancelled cause the container was being ddos. at least they refunded me the money. kind of weird though.

  25. I’m somewhat unnerved by the fact that the password I entered when I signed up for a Berry VPS has been emailed back to me in the clear, not once, but twice.

    Another alarm bell is the apparently manual creation of VPS instances. Shouldn’t this really be automatic once payment is confirmed? I can’t think of a (good) reason why they are not.

    I’m sure Berry Servers berry.pw is Scam company
    Berry Servers berry.pw, Epidrive Webhosting Solutions epidrive.com is SCAM, do not wasting your time with them

    This IS a SCAM. Berry servers with company name Epidrive is a big FRAUD. My server for 12$/year was provisioned manually after A WEEK !! That too after much correspondence. The server after setup was active for just 2 days and it was showing INACTIVE / SUSPENDED in control panel. Reason provided was that it has used up its allotted bandwidth. 300 GB bandwidth consumed in 2 days that too within 4 or 5 logins !! Next month the same story repeated and I have not been able to login into the server ever since. No refund and no proper replies. Wasted time and efforts. I guess the damn cheap servers have these hidden problems. AVOID and BEWARE of this company (or individual).

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
