Justin from BoxVPS said in an email: “I wanted to extend this offer for the entire month of June for all lowendbox.com users.” Thanks for the offer!

BoxVPS Via this WHT offer. BoxVPS is currently having 50% off offer on their OpenVZ based VPS offerings. The cheapest plan has been $50/year. Last time they doubled the length, and this time they half the price which IMHO is a better offer :) Use coupon code 50off when you sign up.

  • 256MB memory
  • 2GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer

Softlayer data centre (in Dallas TX). See previous BoxVPS posts for more details.

    I tried to sign up with them, but after paying was asked to email a scan of my ID. I don’t consider that a reasonable request or a safe thing to do, as such ID could get into the wrong hands and be misused.

  2. Likely you are coming from a dodgy IP range?

  3. This is not something that we request from every sign-up(just certain ones with matching factors, IE: dodgy IP range, paypal email mismatch, and many many more).

    Being a quality provider we take what we do seriously for Our customers.

    OMG…
    “Your order was set to fraud”….
    I am getting tired. On VPSlink the setup was instant with the same PayPal account.

    I purchased one around the end of June, figuring that I could at least get a taste of OpenVZ-based VPS. A freshly-installed debian VPS has only 7 processes running, leaving 240MB or more memory free. CPU Speed is adequate, more than enough for what I do.
    HyperVM is disabled. I have to create a ticket to get information about my network usage, but that’s OK with me. So far it’s stable, and I’m satisfied.

  17. I logged into client area today, and found that the recurring payment amount for my vps had changed to $99/year. For your information.

  18. Yes my Small box VPS is also now showing $99/year. I guess I won’t renew.

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.
