BigBrainHost Via this WHT offer. BigBrainHost has introduced their latest low end VPS offers, starting from $6.99/month for OpenVZ based hosting. You also get 40% off first month with coupon code 40offbigbrain. Ordering link here.

  • 384MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 5Mbps unmetered bandwidth
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

The 5Mbps unmetered bandwidth makes me think that the servers might be in Kansas City, although in their server status page one server is in South Bend IL and the other one in Los Angeles CA. Note their website is hosted on a Thurst::VPS node in LA. Also note that BigBrainHost is the one that acquired AgniHost earlier this month, and their hosting plan might just be the same plans on the same servers (thus in Kansas City).

Domain is currently WHOIS protected, which I think is not so good for a customer-facing business. AgniHost.com however is not masked so you can get the contact information there. Domain has been registered since June this year so pretty new service. Adjacent name servers and running cPanel on the same box. Well. Someone did say some good thing about this provider.

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.

    • Virpus does not even have that plan. But I agree that it could very well be in the same DC as Virpus.

  3. Thank you for the review. :)

    We did acquire Agni Host earlier this month. With the acquisition came the existing clients and therefore the reseller packages offered during their time of operation.

    However, we are in the process of testing some new nodes. Once the new nodes are completely tested, anyone that wants to migrate will be offered a complete free month of service. We have also been working out some details on some exclusive dedicated server offerings which we hope to announce in the very new future.

    Anyone that has any concerns or questions can email us directly, info@bigbrainhost.com.
