BuffaloVPS – $6 1GB OpenVZ VPS in Chicago Black Friday Sale

Tags: , , Date/Time: November 23, 2011 @ 12:23 am, by LowEndAdmin

BuffaloVPS Adam from BuffaloVPS emailed me their Black Friday sale promo codes for their “Standard” and “Professional” OpenVZ plans.

  • Standard
  • 512MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • $5/month (Promo code: bfstan, Direct Signup Link)
  • Professional
  • 1024MB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1500GB/month data transfer
  • $6/month (Promo code: bfpro, Direct Signup Link)

They take PayPal only, and have their servers with ColoCrossing in Chicago IL. Interestingly that Adam started as a reseller of ChicagoVPS to get used to everything, and 8 months later we still haven’t seen VPS ready for Buffalo. Still on the card, @Chris & @Adam? BuffaloVPS do have stable servers and quick support, being on ChicagoVPS/ColoCrossing’s infrastructure.

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. LEA,

    Exciting news, we were holding out to make it a surprise but the datacenter is ready. Chris and ChicagoVPS will also be offering Buffalo I think. BuffaloVPS will be launching a special sale for New Years :) So keep an eye out!

    Thanks,

    Adam

  2. Hey Guys,

    Remember, this deal was posted a hair trigger early. This deal is official starting on 11/25 but I may let it start on 11/24 after dinner here in the states as that is when everyone else is getting their Black Friday gig’s going.

    And to confirm what Adam is talking about. We finished up our negotiations and working on populating the data center with the best stuff for BuffaloVPS. Have some testing shortly and then we should be live by the beginning of the year. We may even have Atom servers available in the buffalo datacenter only for a good price ;). I’d keep the eyes open on this one. May be big.

    • Interesting. Sorry if it was posted “too early” — there’s no Black Friday/Cyber Monday where I am so timing was a bit mixed up :)

      November 23, 2011 @ 5:34 am
      • LEA,

        It is fine. We are perfectly fine with it, we are coping. :)

        Thanks for your fine service.

    ADAM ! can you please add a CentOS 6 x86 Operating System Template to the order form. i noticed you only have CentOS 5 X .
    i know that ChicagoVPS has a CentOS 6 X86 on the website so if you have the same system does BuffaloVPS uses an old template of ChicagoVPS order form ?
    i’m waiting to make an order for Professional plan for $6 .

    Thanks,

    Tommy

    November 23, 2011 @ 10:10 pm
    • Tommy,

      We have CentOS 6 uploaded on Solus. Just choose a template on order form and when you get details reinstall the VPS through Solus. I will try and get the order form updated tonight :)

      Thanks,

      Adam

      November 24, 2011 @ 5:38 am
      • Tommy:

        Thank You Adam ! (i’m happy you also have CentOS 6 installed in Solus).
        i am waiting to order later today when you open this Black Friday Promo to the Public.

        Thanks,
        Tommy

        November 24, 2011 @ 9:59 am
        • Tommy,

          You can order now. It was released early since it was posted early. We didn’t want people to try and order and have it not work. Not worth the hassle.

          Thanks,

          Adam

          November 24, 2011 @ 9:56 pm

    Can you accept alertpay?

    November 24, 2011 @ 1:04 am
  7. Tommy:

    Adam, please fix the order form. for some reason it shows the regular price of $14.95 without discount.

    i tried this link : https://billing.buffalovps.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=13&promocode=bfpro

    it gives :

    Order Summary
    OpenVZ VPS – Professional
    Professional $14.95 USD
    » Operating System: CentOS 5 x86 $0.00 USD
    Setup Fees: $0.00 USD
    Monthly: $14.95 USD
    Total Due Today: $14.95 USD

    maybe the link is wrong, and if it is you have to also update Lowendbox Admin .

    Thanks,
    Tommy

    November 24, 2011 @ 10:14 pm
    • All you need to do is clicking on “Checkout” to come to the page when you actually need to pay something — then you’ll see the final price at $6/month.

      November 24, 2011 @ 10:32 pm
      • Tommy:

        Thank you LowEndAdmin ,as you wrote i pressed on “Checkout” and it worked with $6/Month Price.

        and Thanks you Adam for this great Black Friday Promo. i ordered and paid and got the activation in about 1 minute and the VPS was online and working great ! thank you all !

    Is it too late?
    I’ve dove the check out but i have this message “The promotion code you entered has been applied to your cart but no items qualify for the discount yet – please check the promotion terms”
    Thanks

    November 27, 2011 @ 7:02 pm
    • Bob,

      The promotion is still working, make sure it is month to month term and not a prepay.

      Thanks,

      Adam

    What’s the relationship, if any, between ChicagoVPS and BuffaloVPS?

    November 28, 2011 @ 4:41 am
    • Hello,

      We used to resell for them, then got big enough to move to our own nodes. We are still in the same facility and work very close with each other.

      Thanks,

      Adam

      November 28, 2011 @ 5:59 pm
      • Hasanul:

        Hi Adam, how long setup time for new order? There’s no update at my order number 9743809553 since few hours ago. I send ticket to sales, but no respond. Can you take a look it, please? Thanks :)

  12. denis:

    Does this Price also include cpanel/whm?

    November 28, 2011 @ 8:11 pm
    • Are you kidding?

      November 29, 2011 @ 8:50 am
      • denis:

        No! Bcoz when i choose centos with cpanel/whm the cost doesn’t change and even though I can order with that amount it was hard for me to believe either which is the reason WHY I didn’t order in the first place! & u don’t have to be a sarcastic jerk, jerk!

        November 29, 2011 @ 8:52 am
      • I’m sure there’s no add-on at order form. I made order few hours ago. Maybe what you think cPanel is an OS image Centos with cPanel. And I’m not sarcastic like you did.

    • denis:

      Could you please explain what this means

      CentOS 5 x86_64 w/ cPanel/WHM $0.00 USD ?

      Does this mean I still have to pay for the cpanel license ?

      November 29, 2011 @ 9:01 am
      • Of course. It’s only OS with pre-installed cPanel, but not the license. You need to buy cPanel license to use it.

        November 29, 2011 @ 9:04 am
      • Of course. You are choosing a drop down of available OS Templates.

        Thanks,

        Jeremiah

        November 29, 2011 @ 9:04 am
        • denis:

          apparently the discount is no longer working :( but there is no detail about cpanel licensing fee either. I guess its too late!

          November 29, 2011 @ 9:05 am

    The offer is still valid! After click on “Checkout” button, you will see the discounted price applied. Have fun!

    Hello. Is it possible to run a Terraria server off of the $14.95 Professional OpenVZ/Xen servers? If so, I would love to do bussiness with you.

  16. Esko:

    What, if any, VPS can I use to run a Minecraft server with this company?

    November 29, 2011 @ 10:33 pm

      Any will do, depends on how many people you want to connect to it.

      • swartz:

        Thanks for the info. Another question. If I sign up and chose an existing domain that I have. What do I put it for ns1/ns2 prefix? I’ve updated nameserver records in godaddy (domains registrar) to ns1/ns2.buffalovps.com

        December 5, 2011 @ 10:30 pm
        • Put anything what you want. Is part of the billing system template, but is unused :P

          December 5, 2011 @ 11:01 pm
        • swartz:

          Does BuffaloVPS host DNS records?
          I set ns1/ns2.buffalovps.com as nameservers for my domain.
          But that does not work.
          What am I missing?

          December 6, 2011 @ 8:36 am
  19. Frankenputer:

    Will you host Opensim servers on the discounted Professional accounts?

    December 6, 2011 @ 10:47 pm
  20. swartz:

    Is the provider down?
    I have two VPS with them and none respond.
    Even their homepage is down.
    Whats going on?

    December 13, 2011 @ 10:36 pm
    • Jon:

      there was a brief (~10 minute) outage at Chicago VPS’ upstream provider today – I assume thats what caused your outage.

  21. rodo:

    I have order a Proffesional Vps in BuffaloVps some ours ago. I’ve received Welcome mail, onvice and receipt, but nothing about Ip, Dns, etc. I can log in but don’t see Virtual servers. Posted ticket #827965 but do not have any response.

    May setup process be to slow (3 hours and half at least) ? Or may I miss something in setup process ?

    Thank you !

    December 28, 2011 @ 11:48 pm
    • Rodo,

      it is normal for this wait with the holidays on us. We are short staffed like nearly every other corporation. You will be setup shortly.

      Thanks,

          This is our fault and not bvps. Its one of the older nodes and some BuffaloVPS customers were still on it.

          We are almost done with the fix.
