LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

BoxVPS – $36/Year 512MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 14, 2009 @ 2:24 am, by LowEndAdmin

BoxVPS Via this WHT offer. BoxVPS has some limited time offer on their already cheap VPS plans. By prepaying for 12 months with coupon code 50off, you get double memory, triple hard drive space, double bandwidth and half the price. So “small Box” comes down to $36/12 months, and you get:

  • 512MB memory
  • 6GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer

Equal share CPU (so no cpulimit throttling). Servers are in Dallas. They have been around for a while now (and frequently featured on LowEndBox) so I guess it’s relatively safe to buy from these guys.

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.

    So I’m the lucky one who got canceled from 2host…

    So I moved on to BoxVPS, but I’m having issues… Although I was finally set-up 36h after a 12 months purchase, I didn’t get the full “upgrade” with the coupon.

    Anyone in the same boat?

    I got one. You need to pay for 1 year in advance to get the 512ram option. I opened a ticket paid and got 512ram for ~$30 USD for year that’s very cheap. So far so good.

  5. I signed up and paid on Monday September 14th for a year and still have not received my login information. I sent them an email yesterday to billing@ which automatically opened a ticket but have heard nothing back. I can see the charge on my credit card is very real. If anyone has a point of contact that they know a human reads at this company, I would appreciate having it.

    Thanks

  7. Followup on my issue. Boxvps didn’t respond to my ticket that had been auto-created when I emailed billing after 4 days so I emailed support and they replied within 8 hours saying that my VPS had been setup and my login info sent to me the day I signed up. I found that email in my SPAM folder (I’m using Gmail) which was odd because all subsequent communications such as the auto-replies telling me tickets were being opened and the human response came to my inbox.

    So, my VPS had been setup, however I was not given the RAM I was entitled to for prepaying for an entire year. I responded to the ticket that I had heard back from them on and they said they would fix this but that was two days ago and it’s still not fixed.

    Raise a ticket ask for your RAM allowance. I had to. I then had to pay 1 year in advance ( $36 no big deal for 512 VPS for a year ). After that I was set.

    Actually I messed this particular VPS up and needed then to re-image it. There ticket response times so far have been excellent one as low as 5 mins.

  9. I already paid for the year. I’ve opened 4 tickets. Quickest response was something like 8 hours. Two of the tickets have yet to be responded to. I don’t think they like me.

  10. After 4 days with no response or action, I posted again to the two tickets I had open with BoxVPS regarding my RAM. An hour and a half later they upped my RAM to 1G so I got a some extra for my trouble.
