Tags: , , Date/Time: August 30, 2010 @ 1:33 am, by LowEndAdmin

Burst.NET Via this WHT offer. Looks like Burst.NET is getting into the UK/EU VPS hosting business. Here is their EU website which looks pretty much identical to their US site. Their UK VPS packages are also more expensive than their US counter part as well so you need to do annual payment to get under the threshold here. For £49.50/year you get

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

Burst.NET’s OpenVZ/vePortal product has often been rebranded/resold by new VPS providers (or provider-wannabes). Now they are getting into the UK market are we expecting to see a flood of BurstNET resellers offering VPS there as well? IRC not allowed (client/server/bots). IPv6 available on all products.

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. “Their UK VPS packages are also more expensive than their UK” – Shouldn’t the end part be US instead of UK?

    They running their business in UK, but are they going to provide UK server? I’m also have VPS reseller account with burst.net Also using my VPS with their reseller code, so it makes my cost lower :) Anyway I mailed them today. They inform me, all of their servers will be from US but they already established high speed net connectivity with their US nodes to UK/EU locations.

    ==================== // The mail I get from therm :
    Upon turn-up, BurstNET® immediately has one of the largest webhosting-specific networks in Europe, with many providers still operating on 1Gbps connections, rather than 10Gbps.
    ==================== //

    So its good to hear Burst.net still rocking around.

    *** I’m actually satisfied with them since last 1.5 year and still running 6 VPS with them. But one problem is they provide only 1/2 CPU and very few restricted nodes. If you are using higher I/O, then they will send you 1MB L2 cached based server and slower node… ***

    I have ordered one of these, and the option for location was Manchester, UK – and I’m seeing around a 20ms ping from my UK location, so definately UK-based servers.

    @Omio – When I asked, they provided me with this test IP: 178.238.129.83
    Just to confirm, the EU servers *are* located in Manchester, UK – not the US, I think either you or BurstNET got confused there somehow.
