    Great offer, but only Ubuntu 12.04 ESR??? Is 14.04.5 ESR 64B AMD not available? Would snap this up with that!

    • We have 16.04 available – if you require a different version, I’m sure we could accommodate your needs. :)

        Thanks, but we don’t touch 16.04, systemd infested.

    How easy is it to use our own ISO? I’d like Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS…

    • Hi Jon,

      We have Ubuntu 16.04 available – it seems it’s just missing on our order form. After placing your order, you can reinstall to the requested version.

      Thanks!

  9. Hi everyone,

    Ubuntu 16.04 is now available upon initial ordering via the location dropdown.

    Enjoy!

    Hi! just got 1GB VPS. Is there any option to install a bare/core OS like 12.04 or 14.04 without apache/samba/sendmail? I want to start from a base install so that I will only install the apps I need.

    • We utilize the templates provided by OpenVZ. We will look into this and see if we can get some minimal templates going.

    Ordered a 1GB box last night. Payment cleared over 12 hours ago and the box is still pending. I was really excited about it too.

    Will post an update once they respond to my ticket.

    • Hi Ethan,

      We’ll take a look at your order and let you know ASAP. We’ve received a very high volume of orders in the past 24 hours.

      Thanks!

    Any chance of being able to run docker containers on these VPS? I know openvz is traditionally hard for docker, but with newer kernels it should be possible yeah?

    • We have done it in the past and can try to get you hooked up once the VM is up and running. Simply choose centos-7-x86_64 as the OS, open a ticket, and we’ll get the process started.

      Thanks!

    I ordered (2G plan), got information, everything works great so far. Another nice plus, their SolusVM config actually allows setting your own rDNS as opposed to the standard “please contact support” most implementations usually show.

    I have plenty uses for this, is Icecast allowed? I never hit loads for 1.0 (nor higher) in my current box.

    I got one of these.

    Good news: Deployed with no problems. I see some lag, but it’s mostly working as advertised.

    Bad news: Really amazing security holes. VPS ip, username, and password were all emailed to me in plain text in the same message (wat?). Control panel for managing VPS can’t be served over HTTPS (wat?). C’mon guys…

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.
