LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

BigBrainHost – $6.74 256MB Xen VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: October 4, 2010 @ 12:12 pm, by LowEndAdmin

BigBrainHost Brian from Big Brain Host sent me a link to their LEB special of Xen VPS. Use this link to order with promo code XENLEB (update: you don’t need to use the promo code any more as it should automatically show the correct amount), you can get the following VPS for $6.74 (after 25% off recurring discount).

  • 256MB memory/256MB swap
  • 20GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Servers are in Chicago IL with SingleHop. Test IP: Quite a few people purchased VPS from Big Brain Host with their previous exclusive offer so maybe someone can chime in on how their found the services so far.

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.

  2. 1. Is the gig port running on this? – It depends on which node you are assigned.
    2.What type of processor? Again, depending on which node you are assigned. Minimum is E5620.
    3. Can it tun/tap be enabled? It is not available by default. Submit a ticket to the Help Desk or notify us during your order process and we will make sure it is activated.
    4. Can I run mirc/torrent via it? Unfortunately, no mIRC or torrents are allowed on any nodes.
    5. Is there any dedicated speed? Yes – 100Mbps is default on all Xen VPS machines.

    I hope that answers all of your questions. If you have any others, send us an email general {AT} bigbrainhost.com.

      • Sorry, bnc/egg are considered as part of IRC which are against our TOS. Regarding gige, specify during sign up and we will make sure you are taken care of. :)

      Doesn’t mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200 work on Xen? Unlike OpenVZ you need the provider to activate it?
