WARNING: BoltVM appears to be running by automation alone, abandoned by the single person who ran it. If you are able to successfully order, you will be losing money unless you chargeback. If you are able to receive service, note that it is by automation of their system and the service will eventually stop working. Do not order from BoltVM.

Steven, from BoltVM, has sent in an offer to celebrate their first year anniversary with the LowEndBox community. They included both SSD and SSD-cached solutions. SSD-Cached offers are located both in New Jersey and Los Angeles while SSD offers are only available in New Jersey. They are now using Virtualizor instead of SolusVM from their previous offer.

It seems like BoltVM’s client area has been offline for a couple of days now, according to reports on LowEndTalk and my own personal findings. Their WHMCS license has expired and there is no sign that this will be fixed any time soon. All order links have been removed.

    “IPv6 is not available yet on their services.”

    How is that still even a thing?

      I ask myself the same thing. Unfortunately, it’s not in our hands.

      • Why not add non-native IPv6, like HE in the meantime?

          Because then everyone complains that the thing they don’t actually need or use is slower than they’d like, sigh.

  2. What about legal torrenting when max UL and DL speed is limited? Didn’t find anything regarding this in their ToS.

    Lightning 1024 is already out of stock and I would really like that one. Any chance of more in stock for this offer? thanks

  4. 1. There’s an useless zero in the NJ IP.
    2. 100% packet loss to LA IP from myLoc (Frankfurt, Germany)
    3. Do they activate accounts on weekends as well?

    • Steven F:

      1. The zero should not affect anything.
      2. Please send us a traceroute.
      3. We’re almost finished with all of the current orders. Just a few more to go.

        I met the same situation of Markus’s, Pinging NJ is OK, but LA is 100% lost.
        so, I finally choose NJ.

  5. For some reason, the link to BoltVM is redirecting me to the namecheap site?

    I know this is a dumb question but does the 1TB transfer include upload and download on the VPS and does it reset monthy or is it for the lifetime of the VPS?

    • Chris:

      “transfer” usually includes upload and download, and that is monthly allowance.

    I have a yearly plan from the previous offer with them. its a great plan, but obviously they limit the network speed of my VPS. file transfer never exceed 1MB/s.

    Machine performances are good overall, but support is slow and sometimes rude. Very rude.
    I waited more then 1 week for a fix on a network issue.

    Better you guys give the money to someone that knows what is doing…

    You can use the Client Area via Firefox but bot Chrome. And the vps that i ordered works rather good.

    They’ve updated their website and WHMCS is working again. I can confirm their site and client area works correctly in Chrome.

    VPS usually running 0.02-0.11 max got suspended because went over 2.0.

    L1 ticket open: 48h still no reply;

    L3 ticket open: 24h still no reply too.

    Have a very low CPU usage process that needs to be running 24/7… all data is now inconsistent, and no way to recover it…

  28. I made the mistake of trusting this VPS after using it for almost a year. I cannot access my VPS for a whole 4 days now and I have a lot of data there. A reliable host would have given some form of communication to acknowledge the issue.

    • My VPS has also been down for I believe 5 days now and still no response from support… Up until now I would say the service has been worth the $18 bucks a year for sure but I still expect some form of communication on whats going on.

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.
