LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

BibiHost – $4.95 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: May 15, 2011 @ 12:57 pm, by LowEndAdmin

BibiHost “DracH” from BibiHost emailed me a while ago about their Budget Linux VPS range, which starts at $4.95/month.

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

Not a particular “powerful” server, despite the superman logo — you probably have to pay more for that. You can choose either UK (BurstNet, test IP: 46.37.180.194, direct sign up link), or Scranton PA in US (BurstNet, test IP: 96.9.132.80, direct sign up link). BibiHost is owned by Alberto in Italia, and is part of “IMDD Services”. Domain registered since March 2009. Some reviews can be found on WHT and they seem to be positive (example #1, #2). For $4.95 you can probably get the VPS with better spec from BurstNet themselves though.

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 believe examples #1 and #2 are both for shared/reseller hosting although their service looks pretty good for VPS’s too.

  2. My Spidey sense is tingling for both of those reviews. The first one has a non functioning blog link as their sig. But yet they just recently signed on to spam for another host. Their last login was in fact today but yet they haven’t updated their sig link? And most if not all of their posts are promotional? Something isn’t right.

    And the other review never got around to providing any proof as requested twice. And it was for a dedicated server anyway.

    *shrug* Could be all peachy keen though….

        • There’s a comment before that one that’s in moderation because of the links. Once LEA passes it, it’ll make sense.

          Sorry for the confusion.

    • Umar is a client of BibiHost since 2009. He also worked for us in 2009 and 2010. This may clarify some of your doubts :P

      Just thought I would add, i am Umar and my blog is working and has been for some time now. I also run a free host and MaximumHost.net as well as personal sites, blog and main pages for both hosts. All of this is hosted on one shared account with BibiHost, the actual hosting i provide is done via three servers I own :)

      So you have a real person who has been with this company right here, feel free to ask anything :p

      ICANN highly recommend you have correct info, and punish registrars that don’t try and keep people hiding.
