LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Breathost – $3.96 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Kansas City

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 11, 2011 @ 1:37 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated July 2011 — BreatHost is no longer resolving. Sebastian did a runner again it seems. FAIL.

Breathost Sebastian Göhring from Breathost actually emailed me this almost 2 weeks ago — and I’ve just tested the code and they are still running this promo. 20% off recurring discount on their VPS products, when you use coupon code 20offvz. “Bronze” is then $3.96/month with the following metrics:

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer on 100Mbps
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in Kansas City MO with Wholesale Internet. IPv6 is available. Domain registered last December by Sebastian, who previously ran SynHost.eu and confirmed that it’s a single-person company with external contractor (probably doing the support shifts). Saga involving previous dealings with IGSOBE still seems lingering and I guess we would never be able to find out what the truth is due to all the he-said she-said. Breathost is Sebastian’s new business, and hopefully it stays for a while.

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.

  1. Thanks for posting our offer. John (IGSOBE) is still a good friend of mine and I do have one server colocated with him. But customers will be setup on our kansas city servers located at wholesaleinternet.

    if i didnt mess up the calculations, the next bigger offer would be $7.20/month, just 20 cent outside the LEB price range.

    kinda sad thing that debian 6 is not in the OS-list, wonder if one can upgrade by hand or if that would break things?

    • That’s correct. We do have Debian 6, however the OS list on our website isn’t updated yet.

  5. Got one of their nicer plans with the 20% code, going to give them a try. I’ll let you know what I find.

    • Signed up for the Gold plan yesterday, received mail that the “Automated setup will occur in less than 10 minutes” – three hours later I emailed them. Received email as 0059 saying there were out of stock and will be setup today and that my account would receive a 30% credit “as a little apology”. I think the service so far is great – I just worry that it might all be lip. Will post back when I see something.

      • All VPS orders have been setup and the credit has been added to the billing accounts.

        Thanks!

      • Box was setup, using Virtuozzo control panel. So far just as promised; ram, hd and two ip’s. So only ding so far is not setup as timely as said – but the customer service contact has been very good.

        • I do really apologize about that long setup time. We got a lot of orders during the weekend and had to setup new nodes on monday (night).

          But we do have enough space now to accept new orders.

    I’d really hate for more people to get burnt as i did. but it seems my warnings are going un-noticed. be VERY VERY cautious if you do obtain services from breathost (ex synhost). It’s not just me that got burnt, im just one of the small fish. I feel pain for whoever had dedicated server(s) with synhost and igsobe, they are the bigger fish that got burnt! (and yes i heard 1st hand on what went on as a lot of suppliers and clients got burnt)

    It seems that everyone keeps passing the blame back and forth about synhost and the whole ‘truth’ about the matter is kept hush… again be VERY CAUTIOUS!

    Breathost is good. Sebastian gave me a free month (I think 2 actually) because he ran out of IPs and my VPS wasn’t setup instantly.

    Their kansas node is very good. Other then a small problems, (like my VPS blocking my IP, yet /etc/hosts.deny is empty) the VPS is very good and I DO get the extra 256MB of burstable ram when needed.

    Can i use the Bronze Pacakge for a VPN only? Need a US VPN for me only so i want to setup a VPS for it. :)

  11. Both Breathosting.com and GerVPS.com are down for 2 days now. It appears that Sebastian might have already done a runner at the end of May, according to this WHT post. Well you know the saying. He did it once, and he will do it again, despite whatever the man said.

    For whoever did pay for services with Sebastian… I did pre-warn you all, whether you listened or not I’m not sure…

    But one thing I can say is… ‘I told you so’. Stay away from anything to do with Sebastian (synhost/breathost) or John (igsobe). I assume he will be back under another name/host/vps service soon enough.

    Regards, disgruntled customer aka porknbeans.
