BurstNet – $4.46 512MB OpenVZ VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: December 15, 2010 @ 3:06 pm, by LowEndAdmin

BurstNet Hey guys! I am still alive and I am supposed to be on holidays still. Trip over here (Taiwan) has been pretty much endless eating, and I guess I might need to put in more effort in trimming the waistline fat rather than trimming the memory-bloated VPS after I get back. Due to the accommodation arrangement the hotels that I’ve stayed over the past week actually don’t have broadband connection to the room, and free wifi has been scarce. Anyway, I did manage to get some connectivity to approve comments and post this update.

And kudos to the president and CEO of BurstNet who sent me an exclusive offer a few days ago, regarding to their expansion to Los Angeles. Use promo code LOWENDLAVPS to get 25% off recurring discount (expiry 31st of December 2010), which brings their Unmanaged Linux VPS #1 down to $4.46/month. Here is the link:

  • 512MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • OpenVZ/vePortal

This makes BurstNet’s OpenVZ/vePortal product available in either Los Angeles CA, Scranton PA or UK. It’s not the first 512MB VPS under $5/month. However what makes BurstNet different is probably its size, and how many other so-called “VPS providers” are actually just resellers of BurstNet’s products (or using their infrastructure). 177ms to LA from here in Taiwan (comparing to 247ms to Scranton) so it’s sweet for the Asian users.

That’s it for the update. I’ve got a few other offers emailed to me last week although nothing extraordinary — will get them posted after I get back.

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.

      Seems to work on the 9.95 one too and also on the yearly payment….

      Does it include ipv6 addresses too?

        Should be..

        “BurstNET® is one of the first budget hosting providers to make IPv6 addressing service available end-to-end on its entire product line: including Dedicated Servers, Virtual Private Servers (VPS), & Co-Location. BurstNET® clientele can get a head start configuring their services for IPv6, or just utilize an inexpensive VPS package to just learn how to configure/utilize IPv6 for future needs.”

    @LEA
    While you’re in Taiwan, ask around if anyone there offers cheap VPSes actually located in Asia :)

    Seriously, Asia is under-represented on LEB – though it’s not surprising, given lack of cheap datacenters/connectivity there compared to the US.

    • Maybe there would be no cheap VPS Provider in Asia at this time :(
      As in my country, some of them are offering VPS with 256Mb memory as $7 – $30.
      Their speed is high for local (Indonesian) , but too slow if going international.
      I ever tried to install WHM/Cpanel with a 512Mb VPS, and it can took about 6 hours more, and sometime i just run the installer at 4 pm, and leave it untouched. But when I checked it in the morning, 6 am, it’s still not finished :((

      • bro, any info on low cost vps provider from indo? i only know MWN and daxa, but never used before. ever tried them?

        December 16, 2010 @ 4:27 am | Reply
        • Hello bro.
          This is some of my evaluation at trial vps:
          – Daxa : Cheap VPS, speed for international is slow, good support. But their IP is blacklisted in many place, maybe it’s because the previous user.
          – Magnet-Id : Good support, good VPS, but the price is high. I am using their VPS once, but since I found that my QuickWeb is a lot better than them, I’m cancelling my account, and using their shared hosting for mirroring my website in Indonesia
          – Idcolo : Their vps speed is slow, and after trial ended, they removed my account too :(
          They should not do that, because sometime maybe I will join them again.

      • Indonesia lacks of infrastructure. Even the only communication satellite is already sold by irresponsible officials to a foreign company.
        Many infrastructures are owned by private companies but the government regulation is not mature enough to control them. So their service provision is not based on what public need but tends to be business oriented.
        Even the TLD regulation is still a mess.

        Imagine if there is a war or unrest and no control over the communication, Indonesia will be a sitting duck (No offense to the hamsters heh heh heh).

        Hmmm not something to be proud of, but some people have to live with it on a daily basis.

      Picked up one of their normal VPS today. Very snappy performance. Probably not a good comparison against their premium line, but for what it’s worth:

    burstnet is the worst in customer support. it takes forever for them set it up. credit card overseas payments needs to have signed and faxed contract to them. even for paypal.

    And after that, it takes forever for them to activate it. really is a scam operation and has the worst customer service.

    • They are definatley not a scam operation. We have a couple of VPS’s with them as external monitoring stations and I can’t really complain for the amount they cost. The last ticket we put in to have our inodes increased had a response time of about 30 minutes which is good when you consider the size of the company. We have had a couple of outages in the past year with them however one of them was due to an explosion along the road and they handled it quickly to get the generators spinning up properly.

    • I wouldn’t call them a scam because of that. If it was a scam, you wouldn;t get what you ordered and you even say they follow through, although slowly.

      Maybe sucks would be a better term.

    • Your comments have no merit, nor fact basis. Our VPS service delivery is AUTOMATED and INSTANT, as long as you pay for your order when placing it, have no prior overdue debt/invoices, and pass our fraud checking measures. Obviously you must have failed on one of the above, otherwise you would have received service near instantly.

        unfortunately, I have to disagree with burstnet comment. It really suxs in their customer service.
        I think there has been many complaints about burstnet. They try to promote through websites like this but customers complain
        – that replies takes really long time and answers are short that most of the time does not answer the question
        – pulling the plug without notification
        – takes extremely long to setup. Those who got setup fast, u r just the lucky ones.

        I’ll give it a suck rating.

        December 16, 2010 @ 10:32 pm | Reply
        • Back that up with some facts.

          – Our vps setups are AUTOMATED and INSTANT—if you did not get that, it is because YOU failed to do something (pay your invoice, pass fraud checking, or have prior unpaid debt with us…)

          – We have a TOS/AUP…if you violate it, and don’t resolve the issue, yes, you will get the plug pulled. If you don’t pay for your service, yes, you will get the plug pulled. If you over-utilize the service, and treat it like it is a dual quad core dedicated server that you are getting all toyourself for $5/month, yes, you will get the lug pulled (and advised to migrate to different node, or upgrade to dedicated server). Do we pull the plug just because we feel like it without just cause…ABSOLUTELY NOT.

          – We are a BUDGET hosting provider. If you want instant responses, you need to go to a premium/managed provider, and be prepared to pay many many times the ridiculously low prices we charge. We provide an excellent service, above and beyond what should be expected in our price range, and the vast majority of our clients realize that and appreciate the bargain they get with us. Unfortunately, we cannot please every client.

          I think this reply is a perfect example of what to expect from customer service. I’ve been reading what burstnet employees post here and other site and this seems to be their corporate mantra – to berate the customer. Interesting marketing concept from a psychological point. The thousands of “suck” posts paralleled with the bursthost responses speak for themselves.

      • BurstNET has nearly 40 employees, and is not a “family run operation”.
        The company is still under private ownership after nearly 20 years, and a few members of the ownership’s family work for the company. However, the operating structure and the day to day operations are by no means handled by just these individuals, and a full management team is in place controlling such. Basically, there is enough involvement by ownership to care on a personal level what happens with the success/operations company, but not where it is run based on whims of a family. ;-)

  13. I must admit that their website is a big turn-off for me. It gives me the feeling that with such an old design they must not be very good at what they do.

    Then again, having an old 90’s design might give you the feeling they’ve been around for a while.

      We do NOT advertise that we back up these nodes (it is not feasible due to price range, and quantity of data involved), and it is the client’s responsibility to handle their own backups.
      We DO provide the tools for backup/restore on the nodes though, thru the vePortal interface…

      Whoa, dual quad 5620’s? Even VPS #1 package? How is the 1ghz cpu limit implemented? I got one at your Scranton DC and it’s only reporting a single X3220.

      • Yes, in LA. Most newer nodes in Scranton are the same, but we have plenty of older single Quad Core nodes we still utilize already in service. Keep in mind, that the single CPU systems obviously have far less accounts on them, so performance difference is not all that much different.

        There’s no CPU limit, they just erase you if you use it.

        • Incorrect. If you over-utilize the service, we will inform you to resolve the issue, and if you do not, we will need to relocate you to special nodes that we utilize for such heavy-utilization clientele. Sometimes we may recommend a upgrade to a Dedicated Server, if your usage really is not suitable for a VPS environment. We certainly do not just “erase” you however! ;-)

    I really want box at this superb price but would prefer one in Manchester rather than US. Do you have any idea if the EU promotion will be live soon, or if the US promotion will be on at the same time as it?

    The price is incredible and I don’t want to miss out by holding out for the UK one and finding out that the UK ones don’t work out as cheap as the US ones.

    • Our payment system is automated, so if it shows unpaid, it is because you did not pay properly thru our billing system interface, or paid with uncleared funds (echeck, which takes time to clear), etc…

      Our VPS setups are automated and instant, as long as invoice paid at time of ordering, pass fraud checking, and no outstanding older unpaid invoices.

        In those cases you should provide proper info to the customer.

        In any case, if the customer have paid but have not received service is quite frustrating. Everything has a right way to do it.

    • Yeah man, I’ve experienced some bad things too. Well, when we contact them, some of them responds with either rejection or acceptance but some just ignored me.

      I believe they’re just trying to protect their business. After contacting them, many who responded with acceptance usually can work well together with me. So I made a list of those who rejected me or even lock me out of the client area after my order was tagged fraud (no way can I contact them), and I simply avoid any business relationship with them in the future. No hard feelings.

      Man, were in the same boat. We bang our finger to the bones on the keyboards striving to make a living. You punch me, I bleed.

I check my email, they told me to submit additional document and have to write the paypal transaction ID, which mean i have to pay first through paypal.

  33. for me, most weakness of openvz vps is iptables modules. my default firewall script will need to load all iptables modules, and most vps provider dont load them all :)

    for example:
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 -m state –state NEW,ESTABLISHED -m recent –set -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 -m state –state NEW -m recent –update –seconds 5 –hitcount 10 -j DROP
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 -m connlimit –connlimit-above 20 –connlimit-mask 24 -j DROP

    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 –syn -m limit –limit 3/s –limit-burst 3 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 –tcp-flags SYN,ACK,FIN,RST RST -m limit –limit 3/s –limit-burst 3 -j ACCEPT
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 -m state –state NEW -m limit –limit 10/sec –limit-burst 10 -j ACCEPT

    that rules are used to battle with bad bots that abusing my web server.
    please confirm that you can run those iptables rules, especially this one:
    iptables -A INPUT -p tcp –dport 80 -m connlimit –connlimit-above 20 –connlimit-mask 24 -j DROP
    it will block the whole subnet !

    Just like some of you discovered, routing at their LA DC is strange.
    LA-bound traffic from a lot of places gets redirected to somewhere in the East(maybe Scranton?) before U-turn back to LA.
    I have opened ticket 2532628 to alert them about this.

    You can use Sprint tracert (or any major carrier’s Looking Glass utility) to check it.

      I verify that. I’ve sent them a ticket and they still had that problem as of March 24th. My Burstnet vps in LA gets 80 ping to google because it goes to scranton and then the google server in virginia.

      They also had packet losses every other night from 50-80% loss lasting anywhere from 5 minutes to several hours. Sometimes they acknowledge it if they happen to be awake, but it never gets fixed. I tried to do MTR and the packet loss usually starts at the link between them and Hurricane Electric.

    Their LA routing is a bit screwy. Traffic from various locations in Asia and even California itself, they all get directed to somewhere in the East (maybe Scranton POP) before u-turning back to LA.
    I sent em a ticket about this.

    You can use looking glass utilities from major carriers to check routing to Burstnet LA.
