BeyondVPS – $4.98 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: October 31, 2010 @ 10:23 am, by LowEndAdmin

BeyondVPS Rick from BeyondVPS sent me some exclusive offers for the LowEndBox readers. 50% off recurring discount on BE(one|two|three) packages on their Linux VPS plans, when you use promo code LOWENDLOVE. Their price is a bit dealer than many others featured here, and only BEone fit into my threshold after the promo code is applied. For $4.98/month (Sign up link) you get

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10G storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

Price is certainly not the strong point here (lots of cheaper better spec ones listed here). Servers in Scranton according to the network page, “owned and operated by a well established colocation provider” which I guess would be BurstNet/HostNoc. BeyondVPS is operated by RikeMedia in UK, who runs a domain registry (or rather, a ResellerClub reseller) and have recently sold their other VPS company to SteadFast to focus on BeyondVPS.

  3. Sorry no prize for making the first (or second) comment here :) Yes I agree that for 128MB memory, 100GB/month data you can definitely find cheaper and more reputable companies here, that is not reselling a server from HostNoc…

  5. Hey folks,

    @hostingfan: We acquired the domain in Feb 09 – any use prior to that was by the previous owner of the domain name.
    @xen box: Fair point – I’m not going to go into detail to defend why our prices are higher, but we basically have a limit of 20 customers to a server. What does this mean? Better performance due to lower CPU usage and much lower disk i/o (not as many customers reading/writing to disk = faster read times).

    I should also note that we provide gigabit port speeds on all VPS accounts, and again – many low-end providers provide this, but with a maximum of 20 customers using the port you get a much faster speed!

    Tell you what. I’ll put this out there: If you do decide to give us a try, in your order notes mention ‘Rick – LowEndLove’ and we’ll double your bandwidth and disk allocation – simply because we have a huge amount of diskspace not in use on the boxes we’re using for the lowendlove offer, and it may as well go to good use!

    I know this probably wont mean to much as its all talk, but we are not another ‘fly-by-night’ host. I think we’ve proved that pretty well with our domain registrar and previous VPS brand.

    Anyway – take care and good luck with whichever VPS host’s you choose!

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • 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.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
