LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

BetaVPS – $5 Monthly 1024MB RAM OpenVZ in Canada and Germany

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: February 13, 2013 @ 10:38 am, by Liam

Daniel, from BetaVPS, has sent in these two servers for LowEndBox readers.

VPS Tiny

  • 1024MB RAM
  • 50GB Raid1 Diskspace
  • 1 CPU Core
  • 10Mbit Unmetered
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • $5 Monthly
  • Direct Signup
VPS Small

  • 1536MB RAM

BetaVPS “have over 10 years experience with web hosting and servers”. Dos Servers, the parent company, has been in business since 2010. Apparently the ‘Dos’ in the name refers to ms-dos and not the other meaning… Their “minimum server specifications”, would be a server with an Intel Xeon E3 1230 CPU, 16GB DDR3 RAM and 2x 1TB SATA3 Harddrives in RAID1. All host nodes are connected to a 100Mbps port but each VPS is limited to just 10Mbps so that “you can use the full speed all the time 24/7”. I couldn’t find any reviews, so customers please share you experience below!

BetaVPS accept payments via Paypal and Credit Cards. They don’t offer refunds as all payments are final. DirectAdmin can be added for $6/Month and cPanel/WHM for $14.00/month. Daniel is active on our sister-site LowEndTalk. They provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee. As usual, before purchasing you may want to read their Terms and Conditions.

        Its nice that u understand the different of shared 100mbps with limited BW and 10mbps full
        first on 10mbps full u get quite neighbors while on 100mbps someone can push all 100mbps for some time and u as other client stuck without connection
        the second on 100mbps u limited with BW so if u use all the BW your vps is suspended until next month

          Daniel, the solution is not “Well its working fine here”, normally you look into why it is having poor connectivity issues to certain datacenters, e.g. is it the route it is taking etc.?

    Daniel,

    You have not replied to any of the tickets till now. Even though it is just $ 1.85, I think it is ethical to respond to the tickets and explain the situation.
    What is the use of a VPS when I cannot login through SSH and your Control Panel says the “Virtual Server not found”. I just got an IP, which I can’t even ping.

        Hello Daniel,

        Have you delivered what you promised in your ad? Have you delivered the VPS for which I was given just an IP? What can I do just with an IP?

        And you call me a lier…

        Go check your tickets, there is a ticket from day 1, which is still “under progress” and you have not replied at all.

        You send me an 2nd invoice for 2nd week, when till today the VPS was not delivered for what I had paid. And you call me a lier?

        Go to the top, right in the beginning and check your own comment, where you promised to give the VPS in few hours, did you do that?

        Must suck “wean” there is a problem with the “rauter”

        Maybe you should have tested the node before provisioning on it?

    Hello Daniel,

    I would have understood the situation better, if you had replied to my first ticket in the first place. And when someone does not respond to tickets, you would go to the place where you saw the Ad, where you seem to be more active and post a comment to get a response. That is what I did and you would do the same if you were the customer.

    And matter of fact, you do not call someone a lier without checking through your Help Desk tickets, which has an unanswered ticket from me.

    And with regards to Router or any Hardware issues, I thought Servers are first placed in a DC, tested for routing / hardware issues and then the VPSs are provisioned when the orders come in. In your case, the picture I get is, first you take the orders and then get the Servers and then provision the VPSs and then allot.

    Anyways it is just $ 1.85 ( I wanted to test your service, so ordered just for a week ) and is not a bother (since you do not refund). Funny, that you don’t get the product but still pay for it.

    Regards,
    Praveen

    WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
    —————————————

    Daniel instantly suspended my VPS after less then 5 days of service because of a Max load of 4 during peak hours and refuses to refund my money.

    Quoting Daniel’s suspension email:

    Hello,

    Your VPS has been suspended due to high Load of 4.

    Check the pic: http://i.imgur.com/tr0Ms94.png

    We do not allow more then load 1 per every core your VPS has 1 core if you want use load of 4 you most order VPS 4 from EnterVPS.com

    Contact us for sales and support by phone:
    Work hours: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (CST time) (GMT -6)
    Toll Free: +1 (888) 855-2088

    And later the ticket exchange between the two of us, this shows Daniel’s conduct very well:

    1. http://oi48.tinypic.com/2vdqwib.jpg
    2. http://oi49.tinypic.com/347bkvm.jpg

    Quoting from BetaVPS ToS, Daniel kept referring me to:

    Dos Servers may cancel or suspend your access to Dos Servers services at any time and for any reason without notice. Upon cancellation or suspension, your right to use the service will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the service after we suspend or terminate the service. You are responsible for backing up your data that you use with the service.

    In other words, Daniel can suspend your VPS whenever he wishes to for whatever reason he wants it’s not negotiable and he will probably deny you backing up your files or refunding your money.

    YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

        February 20, 2013 @ 12:25 am | Reply
        • I hope BetaVPS is right. It’s a general practise that you should be allowed to use number of loads on number of CPU Cores you were allowed. So, for 1 CPU Core, Highest Load of 1 is accepted. If it is not so, anyone will kick you out and for violating rules, you shouldn’t be refunded. Although, where it is a matter of Refund, BetaVPS could refund him to say Good Bye to him !

      @Bryan
      I think you’ll find that Daniel (and other low end box sellers) rents space from other companies and resells. The German data centre reseller used is http://www.webtropia.com

      This is not Daniels company, but he rents VPS box from them and resells VPS space on that box to clients.

      For $5 a month, i am happy at the moment, as I’m using it to improve my own skills with linux servers.

      Can’t understand other peoples gripes… if you want more… then go look elsewhere and pay more… the old addage… you get what what you pay for is often true. The only thing I’d be unhappy with is the fact that there is no refund if your not happy… but apart from that… who cares at this price.

        Daniel can suspend/cancel your VPS whenever he wishes to for no reason:

        “4. Account Cancellation or Suspension
        Dos Servers may cancel or suspend your access to Dos Servers services at any time and for any reason without notice. Upon cancellation or suspension, your right to use the service will stop immediately. You may not have access to data that you stored on the service after we suspend or terminate the service. You are responsible for backing up your data that you use with the service.”

        When he realized he didn’t act properly (according to his ToS):

        “Misuse of System Resources: Misuse of system resources, including but not limited to employing programs that consume excessive CPU time (outside of allotted CPU usage), network capacity, disk I/O (input/output) or storage space. You will be given a warning before suspension for misuse of resources occurs.”

        -I wasn’t given a warning before suspension

        He referred me to the “Account Cancellation or Suspension” section which means in other words that the “Misuse of System Resources” section wasn’t enough anymore (his ToS is written poorly, copy pasted from somewhere 99%)

        This is a slippery slope for any transaction because this guy can sell you a service for a month then cancel it a day after for no reason and then refer you to his poorly written ToS and bank on your money.

        He doesn’t have visible WHOIS information about himself, he uses a shady paypal email at Yahoo with the name “david” he hides behind the alias “Dos Servers” at PayPal as well, he can pretty much run away whenever he starts losing his money and if by any chance you get to him he will refer you to his bff ToS.

        If you want to trust a guy who’s conduct is as mentioned above and you have so many BETTER providers at the 5$ range don’t complain later.

    Just ordered a Canada VPS for a month. If it goes good with no hiccups then I might renew it.

      My VPS has been down since yesterday and still no response from them on whats going on. I can get to it through HTTP but the MySQL won’t connect and everything else doesn’t work either. I can’t SSH and when I try to access it through their control panel, it says “No response from server”. Their servers are obviously oversold because it is been down off and on since I got it and now its been down for a few days. Don’t count on me being a repeat customer.

          I figured I’d try them for myself. Since the problems I have been having still haven’t been resolved, I am going to see if it comes back online so I can backup my files and then move to a different VPS provider.

    I purchased VPS from you and I got such bad service and support that I will never recommend you to any one.

    I have cancelled the VPS today itself.

    My business is all ruined because of ur third class attitude and support.

    You never replied to mails and never replied to tickets.

    My VPS is down from last 23 days….

    I am not able to even get the back up. All my website data and billing system information is lost.

    I wish u very BAD LUCK MR.DANIEL.

    CHEAP IS NOT GOOD ALWAYS.

      I wonder how some people think that if they just ignore their customers and don’t even say anything to them that they’re going to be return customers and give good reviews? Don’t they know how that if they give good customer service, then customers might return the favor by writing good reviews and recommending them? It’s places like BetaVPS/DosServers that make me shake my head.

      I’m really sorry for you, I tried to warn people exactly a month ago you can look up for my comments.
      Just for general information a 5$/month VPS or more isn’t considered cheap, I could name 10 other companies with good reputation that have VPS plans starting at 5$…

      I encourage people before buying a VPS: research more companies before you spend your hard earned money and put your trust into some random company

      • Daniel:

        One more thing you should consider before going for a new company:

        If Daniel has 100 customers with an average of 7$ from each customer, that’s 700$ profit
        Now he doesn’t own the hardware or the network line, he’s renting it from Cheap providers
        Lets say at the 80-140$ range per server? even if he oversells (lets say 40 people per server)
        that’s at min. 2-3 servers for 100 customers (notice that i’m going for the lowest cost in my calcs)

        50 people per 100$ server = 700$-200$=500$

        Now can someone explain to me how can you seriously run a VPS company with 100 Customers? without either overselling the hell out of the box, or providing no support with a hit and run kind of thing.. the moment more customers leave you or you didn’t fill the box it’s already unprofitable so you stop paying for the box

        He doesn’t earn enough money to even outsource support 1 hour a day that’s how bad it is.

        I can “dig and dig and dig” about this, but you got my point… Don’t expect support or the company to last long with the conditions mentioned above, unless the company is going for the long run and it’s backed by a lot of money.

          The old adage, you get what you pay for, holds true. For $5 a month I would expect good customer service to be the exception rather than the rule.
          Uptime is a little easier to have higher expectations. I mean, if everything is setup correctly, nothing should fall over. Still, these things happen but for decent service, I would at least expect an email to all your affected customers.
          My vps has been down for a few days. I opened a ticket right away and haven’t heard a peep from them yet. Fortunately, I’ve opened multiple VPS accounts with different providers and I’m still monitoring them to make sure they’re at least semi-reliable. Clearly I’m not going to go with betavps any more.
          My longer term plans involve multiple VPS accounts and replication and redundancy (even expensive dedicated servers can have failures). Again, you get what you pay for so you should really just plan for things to fail. If you set things up right you shouldn’t need to worry about it.

    Here’s another vote for Avoid At All Costs. Haven’t been able to start my VPS in Canada in weeks, with no response to my open ticket in 6 days.

      I don’t think there Canadian VPS is truly Canadian. Although I’m not a customer with them anymore I still get (a lot of) periodic service updates in my email and whenever their German VPS, their Canadian VPS is down as well. I think what they do is they have a VPN server in a Canadian data center and they just use those IPs in their node in Germany. Although it could just be that they don’t give 2 poops about their Canadian server and they don’t even look at any of the tickets to find out that there’s something wrong with it. Either way, this is a company you should definitely avoid!

      • Shouldn’t be hard to confirm this.

        Ping the canadian IP from the US. If it’s actually in Canada it’ll be < 70ms. If it's in Germany it'll be 150ms+.

          Well I pinged (what used to be) my servers IP and here’s my proof that their server isn’t actually in Canada:

          >ping 192.95.12.xxx

          Pinging 192.95.12.xxx with 32 bytes of data:
          Reply from 192.95.12.xxx: bytes=32 time=177ms TTL=57
          Reply from 192.95.12.xxx: bytes=32 time=176ms TTL=57
          Request timed out.
          Request timed out.

          Ping statistics for 192.95.12.xxx:
          Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 2, Lost = 2 (50% loss),
          Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
          Minimum = 176ms, Maximum = 177ms, Average = 176ms

          I should also note… Me: 1, BetaVPS/Dos Servers: 0. I contacted PayPal and they made an exception to refund me my $5 even though it was a service that I paid for. So, in your face Dos Servers!

          192.95.12.0/24 is in Canada and owned by OVH Canada . The timeouts and long ping times you’re seeing on the ping test are probably due to the fiber cut that occurred this week on OVH Canada’s network

          Well, there’s your answer to why your VPS doesn’t work. Funny how somebody else knows what’s going on with their server and they don’t seem to even have a clue on what is happening.

    This guy is a scam, takes the money and does not provide the service.

    Looks like you may want to stay away from this company as it looks like they are down more than they are up.

    http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/betavps-5-monthly-1024mb-ram-openvz-in-canada-and-germany/
    BetaVPS.net is down and can not get to their website.

    It looks like I’m not the only person having issues either.

    Hosts come and go… and this one appears to be long gone.

    Hi there!

    My name is Ruben Escobar and I am the Project Manager at Techuso.
    I am very interested in getting a VPS from you guys but before doing so I need to clarify a couple questions:

    1) How much does an additional IP address cost?
    2) What are the requirements to get an additional IP address?

    I appreciate your prompt response.

    Thanks!
