BuyVM – $15/year 128MB OpenVZ in Buffalo, New York

Tags: , , Date/Time: November 13, 2012 @ 11:48 pm, by Liam

BuyVM Francisco, from BuyVM, contacted us to let us know that they have restocked their $15/years in Buffalo.

BuyVM OVZ-128MB

  • 128MB Guaranteed RAM
  • 256MB Burstable RAM
  • 15GB SSD cached RAID10
  • 500GB Bandwidth
  • 1 Virtual Core
  • OpenVZ/Stallion
  • 1Gbit Burstable Port
  • 1 IPv4 & 16 IPv6
  • $15/Year
  • Order Link

Since 2010 BuyVM have been regularly featured on LowEndBox and have came top three in every top providers poll. They were the first provider to offer a vps at the $15 year price point and have kept innovating: they’re currently building their own control panel (Stallion), they were the first provider to launch SSD Cached nodes and offer filtered DDoS protected IP addresses. IPV6 is currently provided over a BGP tunnel since their upstream provider, ColoCrossing, can’t deliver native IPV6 at present. Once they do have it launched, BuyVM will switch and become truly native.

BuyVM’s other plans are also in play in both locations, with 256MB & 512MB VPS’s being in stock. Their DDOS protection has been improving every week, with more and more rules being applied to help deal with SYN floods and the likes. Paypal and direct credit cards are both accepted. You can read their Terms of Service and Acceptable Usage Policy by clicking here. You may also want to have a look at this ‘Frequently Asked Questions’ page, which answers the most common questions.

Servers are located with ColoCrossing in Buffalo, New York. BuyVM operate their own network and have their own IPv4 space.

  1. Or you can go to NodeDeploy.com and have a 1024MB of RAM for just $3.50/M, right Francisco?

    • True, there are many hosts they could pick. Some are scummy, some are good.

      Do either offer DDoS protection for an affordable price? Nope.
      Private LAN? Newp.
      Custom panel with features Solus copies from? nope.
      SSD Caching? maybe, but they are only following in our footsteps.
      IPV6? Maybe, but not in all locations.

      To each their own :)

        Not to mention, the above mentioned hosts do not all their hardware, unlike BuyVM (pretty sure they own it). And the hardware they are leasing is scattered across various data centers.

          I doubt you’ll find many dedicated companies that will go through the pain of setting up a router/etc for you to announce your own IP space on.

    • Everything in New York is SSD cached and on the same burstable Gbit port.

      San Jose is mostly on SSD’s, we just haven’t wanted to take down the last of the nodes to install SSD’s.

        Also how does the mysql offload work, do you provide some sort of ‘jailed’ ssh access to setup the database or is it integrated in your control panel similar to Mediatemple?

    Would the $15 a year plan be fast enough to host a WordPress installation with SSL? I’m currently on a similarly priced VPS somewhere else, but the first time I try to access the site it takes a twenty seconds to show a page. After the initial connection the page loads are doable, but still not very fast.

    • Should be just fine I would think, assuming you aren’t using apache.

      Lighttpd/NGINX would handle both easily. Lighttpd is really easy to configure.

      Apache and SSL work just fine in 128MB–in fact I’ve run them in 64MB, with suitable configuration settings and not too much load. I don’t know about WordPress but assuming a small instance you are probably ok. You may be better off configuring it (if possible) with sqlite instead of mysql. Keep in mind also that the 128mb plan can burst to 256mb when necessary.

        I had that too on my other host (where I had a 128MB VPS without burst) but it was so slow it became unusable. It’s just that BuyVMs servers should be faster.

        It’s not the RAM that bothers me, it’s the speed.

          Hello,

          After a couple hours I do ran into some issues already, but the support via the ticket system is really unhelpful, and refuses to check my configs, even after I am having linked to this post.

          This host has so far been a let-down. But then I might just have been expecting too much for a $15 a year VPS.

          Currently I have inquired for a refund, but have not yet received an answer for that. Let’s hope for the best, and most likely I will follow up in these comments on it.

    Real solid provider with consistently low prices, not just specials to fill up new nodes.

    Love the forward thinking features to keep nodes humming great (like the MySQL offloading) and IPV6 (not at this location though).

    Buffalo, NY is the location I prefer for them right now. Hard to beat the NYC peering.

    @alex
    “How are the rest of the plans”

    They are well behaved and performing well. We are a monthly larger plan customer. Yes, gigabit. :) Don’t expect to get full gigabit speeds, it’s a shared resource afterall. Speeds are hit or miss during peak times.

    Just ran a test here at 1PM (afternoon) where the server is in Buffalo:
    Download speed from CacheFly: 11.6MB/s
    Download speed from Linode, Atlanta GA: 7.55MB/s
    Download speed from Linode, Dallas, TX: 8.94MB/s
    Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 2.50MB/s
    Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 12.2MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.73MB/s
    Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 1.38MB/s

    Now, don’t jump to conclusions there. These are the standard tests everyone uses, unfortunately. Is the problem BuyVM, Colocrossing or those speed tests? Probably a bit of each.

    Ran my own speed test file from our own gigabit server in Kansas City:
    134,217,728 37.2M/s in 4.0s

    Repeated with other servers we have elsewhere with speeds of 18-20M/s.

    The great thing about BuyVM is their constant presence in the LEB/LET/WHT forums. Real down to earth crew that works quick on tickets and goes the extra distance to help.

        • Yep.

          They don’t want to roll it out until all locations support it. Since they have so many I’m guessing it’s sucking up most of Jon’s time.

          Once it’s native we’ll cut the BGP session over :)

    To put it plainly, when I need a VPS for project that’s going to get some serious use, I go straight to BuyVM. Even if there are plans with other providers that give more resources for the same outlay, I’ll go to BuyVM every time. Performance is always solid, I’ve never struggled to get the resources I’ve paid for, and support has always been prompt and helpful.

    I’ve not tried all the providers that are out there so I won’t say BuyVM are the ‘best’, but they can’t be far off the top of the tree.

      We were the first company to support PPTP on all of our OpenVZ servers as well as FUSE & IPV6.

        You’ve gotta do something about not having conntrack enabled for ip6tables (which you do have for iptables). A snotty “move to KVM” support response isn’t the solution to that, especially if you’d like to be a bit serious about providing IPv6 support, be it over a tunnel.

    There TOS give them a lot power to suspend your machine, all of them.
    If you buy only one machine. It is fine, but if you have a lot VPS on there. You just pray they won’t suspend all of your machine just because one machine exceed the limit. Even not the same issue.

    I have 6 servers on BuyVM, but I think I won’t continue use their service after this billing cycle.

    It is still a cute service. But just careful watch their TOS/AUP first.

    November 15, 2012 @ 3:29 am | Reply
    • Which limit exactly?

      The only time all of your vm’s are going to get suspended is if you don’t pay your invoices pretty much.

      If there’s ever abuse we just suspend the single VM that’s involved.

      If you have a case for me to look at I gladly will :)

      Thanks,

      Francisco

    • There are a couple of catches in our TOS that allow us to suspend an entire account, true. But each of these is designed for a specific scenario:

      – Third abuse offense (because honestly, if the first two warnings weren’t enough, it’s time to introduce the concept of consequences, especially considering how willing Francisco is to help people tune configs)
      – Serious abuse (intentional spam, exploit attemts, etc that weren’t the result of a compromised VM)
      – Unpaid Invoices (Sure, someone may have several months left of another plan all paid up, but if we don’t provide incentive to actually pay dues owed, or at the very least get with me to work something out, we very well know that the unpaid invoice will never be settled, and we’ll just eat the loss).

      We have two primary agendas when providing service, and those are a) do our best to provide a stable, BS-free environment for you to use.. which is in no small way accomplished by b) being selective in who we will take as a client. If someone likes to abuse, cause problems for other clients on the node, attract DOS or other attacks? Yeah, they can go play somewhere else.. I would rather have a node full of happy clients than accept an extra couple bucks from an abuser. And that is the basis for our TOS being so strict :P

    • We once had a coupon that added 15,000$ to the plan cost <_<

      But nah, we never did coupons since we felt that our price points were pretty fair for what we offered, and we've never had trouble moving stock. Although we do offer discounts on the longer billing cycles (Semi-Annual = pay 5 months, 1 month free; Annual = Pay 10 months, 2 months free; Biennial = pay 20 months, 4 months free, etc).

  22. I recently had my production server fail randomly at a data center twice in one evening.

    Wanted sleep that night, and only had 10 websites with DNS at Zerigo (1 min TTL) so I moved them over to a backup BuyVM node, knowing with 60+ days of testing w/ constant uptime I’d be fine.

    Never looked back. Upgraded the VPS to their largest plan, and I can sleep fine at night.

    I’ve worked at data centers, been in the hosting industry for 8 years and have over 25 VPS servers right now.

    The first company / backup server I rushed to for my main client’s production sites was BuyVM.

    It just makes sense.

    It looks like the plan is sold out – are there any plans to add more? Thank you!

    • I asked Anthony if he plans to stock any inventory today.

      They usually unload on the weekends since Aldryic isn’t always around, meaning some users may sit in fraud status all weekend.

    Any idea when the 256 mb Open vz nodes will be available in ny? I am interested in signing up…

      As it says above, sales are disabled during the weekend (i.e. there’s no stock shown) because the business staff aren’t around to straighten out ordering snags. Try on Monday.

        Thanks Paul, I had seen that. I was more interested in knowing if there was going to be stock available tomorrow / next few days or if I am better off trying to find a different provider.

  25. I also have 2-3 VMs with BuyVM, even run production site on one of them. Pretty much the only LEB provider I trust enough and use for production site (Panel at my case). Highly recommended. And Fran has always been great to me and extremely helpfull with pretty much everything.

    I’m tried to order, I’m now in Brazil but I put my residential address in Argentina, they banned my account and current IP because falsified information, MY INFORMATION WAS NOT FALSE, I put my real residential address in Argentina, the same of my payPal account, but i’m now in Brazil for some months, i cant send support ticket either, so i think is impossible for people travelling to order this… thanks….

          Actually, I traced multiple freshly-assigned DHCP IPs from the same C block on your ISP (resetting a router is not a sufficient method of hiding) this morning, opening multiple accounts under different names and addresses. For the record, ‘Washington’ is not a street address. The bans are temporary, and placed when I have sufficient evidence to judge that an account is fraudulent. When they expire, you are welcome to register from your residential ISP in Argentina, following the guidelines here: http://wiki.buyvm.net/index.php/account_registration

          @Aldryic C’boäs:

          I don’t know what are you talking about, that wasn’t my order, I did not enter “Washington” as Street, I did not reset the router, I tried to order only once in the afternoon, so dont accuse me of anything without prove OK

          The IP were I’m now is from Bahia, Brazil and half of the population of Brazil has that ISP (Telemar OI)… I did a lookup now and that IP is mistakenly assigned to Florida in a website, in the others is correct: BAHIA BRAZIL… If you need proves contact me personally but don’t accuse me based on wrong information you have…

    I think they got some hardware problems these day. My component is shutdown again… third times in this week :'(

    • Yeah :(

      We’ve been debugging nodes 34,35,39, & 40.

      They’ve always been a bit unstable so we replaced the RAM the other day.

      The issues persisted so we replaced the motherboards last night.

      It’s obvious that some of the CPU’s we bought were bad so we’re just pulling everyone off those nodes until we get a shipment of new CPU’s next week.

      I’m from Indonesia. And I can purchase a vps from Frantech/BuyVM.
      Last time, my account also get marked as fraud, and deleted. But after that, I try to register/purchase a vps, and then marked again as fraud. And I opened a Ticket, and after that I can pay the invoice, and my account still active till now.

      Have you try it?

        No, i think sending ticket and no reply at all + deleted my account is enough for me to decide, we’ll not begging to get equal and healthy cooperation.

        Ticket support is communication, just like you greet other people, and instead replying my greeting, they just simply delete my account.

    @Francisco Dias:

    The “bad details” you mean is successfully and accepted in other providers with strictly anti fraud system for years, let say burstnet with document verification, thrustvps with anti fraud system (i have been rejected at first, but when i communicated with ticket they approved my order), oneasiahost (same as thrustvps), and the others ( i can browse my email inbox for welcome mail and found many similar case but not ended like frantech) even they have anti fraud system at least they have good communication with ticket support and solved the case.

    Also the “bad details” has using in paypal account since 2006, moneybooker since 2008, libertyreserve since 2010 without any problem at all.

    For remind again, i already opened ticket support to asking (with polite) what is wrong with my order, and you even not read at all, just deleted my account.

    Either your anti fraud system is failed or your company has racism policy, i assume racism policy because you even not respond in my ticket.

    • Burstnet, the company that accepts liberty reserve, a payment method that is 100% anonymous has somehow found a way to confirm details 100% on it? Comeon.

      You’ve yet to provide a ticket ID either.

      When you do, I’ll check it out. Until then all I can tell you is that:

      A) we’re not ‘racist’ to any clients
      B) the only time an account is closed like that is because the details were off

        I have select Paypal as default payment method with burstnet then they request me to upload legal document (after phone verification), and i upload that for them so its not anonymous, and how about thrustvps / damnvps, hostigation, photonvps, budgetvm, oneasiahost they all using paypal and i give same “bad details” to them without no any problem at the end.

        I dont mind if you decided rejected my order, but the problem is you ignore my ticket ( i have enclose ticket and invoice id in my previous comment) and remove my account without any explanation.

        It just like i came to your store (i’m sure with polite), asking price for your goods, and instead you answer my question you just push me out and close your store door without any words.

          I only removed two accounts today. One was a Pakistani address that did not give a postal match, and the signup IP matched another account we’ve experienced repeated fraud signups from. If this was you, and you were unlucky enough to receive one of his old IPs via DHCP then you have our apologies. But the end result would still be similar.. we are currently not accepting any new orders from your country due to PayPal’s restrictions.

          If the other account I removed was you, then you should not have signed up with the name ‘hidd3n shadow’, a blatantly false address (“united states st”, really?) and opened a ticket saying ‘u will giv me reselr’. If that was you, and you’re wondering why the account was deleted… well, I’m not even going to justify that with a follow up.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
