LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

This is an exclusive promotion to LEB readers in that way that (last time I checked) bluevm.com still had the original prices on their frontpage and the only way you would know that the price is lowered is by ordering one.

  4. Disk IO ~ 65MB/s, so good, but internet speed, in LA, is awesome.

    I have been checking for more than a year,

    buyvm < urpad << bluevm

    However, keep watching your boxes since they may fail into sleep in a nice morning but bluevm does not wake them up.

    Answer me this, Low End Box.

    I’ve seen providers put through more interrogation than BlueVM.

    BlueVM lacks:
    1. About information
    2. Data center / network information
    3. Worst looking WHOIS I’ve ever seen from a “company” (see point 1)

    I personally know of 2 VPS providers in business longer than BlueVM who were not listed, have registered business names in their respective states and have all kinds of public information compared to this company.

    Anyone from LEB care to comment?

    • BlueVM Sucks:

      BlueVM sucks, plain & simple.

      1) Almost NO response to support tickets (avg response time I experienced was 8 days or more)

      2) They did not know how to configure iptables within the VM; you can verify this via quick online search for others who experienced the same … try searching “bluevm iptables doesn’t work” via your favorite search engine. The result set should even include posts on LowEndBox; and I assure you I did not post all the comments

      3) Based on these (and other) factors, it felt as if this was an “experiment” on their part to see if they could earn money while learning EVERYTHING about VPS hosting from scratch

      Maybe they’ve learned something in the last few months.

      Good luck to those who try BlueVM.

      (Also, make sure you are not confusing this provider with BuyVM. I am not a BuyVM fanboy, I don’t have direct experience with them, and I am not trying to promote that provider, but I get the sense that people are confusing the two providers. One, apparently, is in high demand … and one SUCKS. I only have direct experience with the one that sucked for me — BlueVM)

      • When we first started out I hired a support technician who, as I later found out, really didn’t know anything about his job. He would intentionally bury or close tickets without doing the work required. He has since been fired and support has greatly improved. If you would like to retry our services simply email me (admin[at]bluevm.com) or open a ticket on your account and I will grant you a VPS for 3 months to retry our services.

        • BlueVM Sucks:

          Thanks …. but no thanks. With all due respect, my days of experimenting with BlueVM are over.

          I find it quite interesting how you can now offer a coherent explanation (excuse?) on a public forum (for all the world to see); but while I was a paying customer, I didn’t get sh*t .. no explanation; no response to support tickets; no functioning VPS … nothing.

          A suggestion: IF SUPPORT TICKET IN QUEUE > X DAYS AWAITING RESPONSE, THEN NOTIFY ANOTHER TECH (or supervisor, or owner, whatever) so that someone can followup. Is that too hard to do? Unless, of course, capturing new customers is more important than servicing existing ones.

      • andrelopes:

        I also confirm that BlueVM sucks, the last interaction that I have with these incompetents was to get banned from the IRC chat for complaining the bad service.

        Here is my story:

        This is a personal experience that I had just now. I have tried the 1024MB ram machine, Blue3.

        I’ve been doing Django websites for quite a while now and always hosting it on Linode or RackSpace. But I’m from Portugal and as you know there is economic turmoil here, the economy is degrading and the result is lack of money for quality services. Like a good old Portuguese I’ve search the web for cheaper alternatives, the crisis mandate that we find same services for less money and I found the holly grail of cheap web-hosting, http://www.lowendbox.com

        The prices of the the VPS are amazing, $2, $4, $6 month for machines with 256MB-1CPU, 512MB-2CPU, 1024MB-3CPU, respectively. But the saying is equal everywhere, there are not free lunches. The reality of this cheap hosting for my experience is up-selling the machines, my specific experience with a very very cheap VPS company called BlueVM (http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/bluevm-2month-256mb-openvz-vps-in-san-jose-texas-chicago-kansas-buffalo-and-atlanta/) goes like this…

        Django webapp + ElasticSearch + Celery

        – First problem, account suspended after I imported the database, CPU abuse.
        This django webapp have the geonames(http://www.geonames.org/) locations table for user registry. And this is a lot 3gb of data(300mb dump compressed), the total of my database. The result of deploy a database like this was to get the account suspended because CPU abuse. After an explanation I told the hosting company that I will do that in a time-frame that there is not much traffic on the server, and the hosting company agreed that it was a good time frame while US is a sleep. So I intended to do that in the next database deployment…

        – Second problem, account suspended out of nothing, CPU abuse.
        The web app has been deployed 2 weeks ago, and my due to my lack of time to do small bug corrections the app stayed online without being open to the public, and out of nothing I’ve got my second suspended account and for this time, permanent suspend! After I send a ticket the explanation was that I’ve maybe run some Minecraft scripts. The problem is that I never run any of that. End of my experience!

        After this experience my personal thoughts are, UP-SELLING + incompetence = cheap prices

        So the formula is lets up-sell the machines, contract some cheap systems admins and get really cheap prices. The problem with this I think is a service that is not suitable for any real world problems. For me it was time lost and two months of payment.

        This text was only an expression of a guy that lost time and effort with cheap hosting, test at your risk.

      You had luck. What are you running in BlueVM? I got 2 suspensions of the account while deploying a Django website using Blue3(1Gb Ram). The first I waste my time to see what the reason to get the account suspended, the second time they suspend my account permanently again because of CPU abuse. I was only deploying the website, imagine what could happen in a production environment. Really, do not try to use BlueVM in a real world situation.

    The disk IO is hideous. Mind you we are on one of their larger 3 CPU Core + larger RAM packages, not a totally cheap no resource VPS package.

    That URL for the control panel works for me.

    My VPS with them in California appears to be working. SSH’d into it now.

    My California VPS continues have disk IO slowness that is basically useless for production.

    Anyone else experiencing the same?

    • tried the same, always better than 30MB/s, though not much:

      I have 2 VMs with them – they claim one is in Atlanta and the other in LA. They are both in LA and have identical specs, including the ping delay time from my location. They offered a crappy setup in Kansas City and claimed it was in Illinois. That’s 500 miles off.

  40. I’m experiencing the same problem as pembajak. My VPS is down, and I’m unable to access the customer support site to submit a ticket.

    • Turns out “The node server is down.” After ~6 hours it was back up and has been since.

    Their service is crap, trust me. You go with them, you are likely to cancel your plan just as quickly has you ordered them. Network is always down and mind you, there is no refund policy. So, when you cancel, they are happy.. and they move on – Another free server to be sold.

    Avoid BlueVM at all cost… they have huge downtimes and they won’t refund you a penny. Scammers! They are plently sites offering just the same without felling robbed.

    I just canceled our VPS.

    Reasons: Unused and when we went to use it found very slow disk IO. Highest disk speeds I’ve seen with them are 35 MB/s. Many tests returned numbers under 20 MB/s. Those numbers are down there with an old worn out 2.5 PATA that is in the process of breaking.

    Their VPS performance from an updates install (post file download), some small compiles and disk IO testing was one of the worst (SLOWEST) I’ve seen.

    Surprisingly, and to their credit, the server instance was sitting at 95 days of uptime.
