LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

CheapDomainNamesDot.com – $4.99 512MB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 10, 2011 @ 12:42 pm, by LowEndAdmin

CheapDomainNamesDot.com Erez from CheapDomainNamesDot.com emailed me their special coupon code for the LowEndBox readers. Yes I do wonder whether his domain name pronounces “cheap domain names dot dot com” but anyway, use lowendbox to get 50% off first month. Yup, it is not recurring as the pricing is already pretty cheap. From their VPS plans page, you can get “VPS Server 3” for $4.99/month. Direct sign up link here.

  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 40GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer on 1Gbps
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers with PhoenixNAP in Phoenix AZ (test IP: 174.138.175.114). Erez also stated that they have their own servers, and have been offering hosting since 2006. WebHostingStuff on their website has shown some pretty poor availability around October 2010-January 2011. The website design is a bit, hmm, 90’s Classic. It’s main business seems to be reselling GoDaddy’s domain names.

Pricing has been misconfigured on the site — “VPS Server 1” says $1.99 but once you get into WHMCS ordering page it prompts $3.99. Their Terms of Service only covers refund and nothing at all regarding the service. Sitting on an older domain certainly does not give them any credibility as a hosting provider though, especially when you can’t find any info on WHT. I’ll give it a pass.

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.

    Horrid domain, and the site looks like it hasn’t changed since 1995. It’s a pain to navigate too.

    Oh, and the “Confirmed secure website – click to verify” thing at the bottom? Static image. No link.

    Dunno about their actual services, but it’s not a company I’d consider if judging them by their website…

    • It seems that they have add a link to it, but it’s their WHMCS… :(

    • Their “Compare Our Prices” icon drops you into their domain ordering form. I wonder if that’s on purpose or not.

      The Paypal Verified icon is static as well.

  6. Since when is WHT required to be a hosting company? Maybe they are smart to avoid WHT to cut down on the guttersniping by random people, the politics of the moderators and all the other foolishness.

      Like it or not, it’s the biggest out there. You’d think someone would’ve recommended them or slated them at least.

      • That is why this website is here to give these people a chance rather than take jabs at them because we have preconceived bias of an unknown provider. It’s no different than a bunch of car enthusiasts talking about Chevy / Ford / Toyota being the best car.

        • Gary:

          We’d at least have heard of Ford/Toyota/Chevy. With so many good, proven providers out there, why take a chance on an unknown who is giving a pretty average deal?

          How is that pretty average deal? :)

          512MB Memory/1024MB Burst/$4.99/month

          I would call this as very reasonable good deal – atleast price/resources wise (as we don’t know anything about quality of their service yet).

          Their website makes it look like they don’t care about the business.
          Trust me, a company that wants customers, would at least have a decent website… Also, reselling godaddy’s domains isn’t the best way to go :x

          Usually even pure-whmcs sites at LEB aren’t criticized that much :) Some $ less for package and most of you wouldn’t even see site anymore, a? :)

        • Gary:

          At least a pure whmcs site would look better. :/

          This way, they’ve obviously paid for a design, and it’s awful. Wasted money. Mind you, if they have gotten 15 years out of it, that’s VFM. ;)

      • As for your claim of “taking a risk”, waiting for a Paypal dispute to resolve which 99.9% generally works out in your favor, albeit takes awhile, but isn’t that much of a risk compared to in the real world.

        The only “risk” you get is prepaying for a year and after 45 days, the provider takes all of your money since Paypal has no say in the matter anymore and closes down shop.

        Of course, all of you know this.

        • I must have missed all those provider wins cases where, since it’s not physical goods, Paypal automatically sides with the provider per their policies.

          Granted though it’s only a couple of bucks normally. Of course for some of us, that’s a couple of days worth of food.

          Considering this comment and your other recent one, I have to wonder how familiar you are with this field and this site.

          Happened to me with both my XVPS (Yomura) VPSes. Not physical goods, Paypal ruled in their favour.

    • I wouldn’t worry too much with what these people say on here. LEB is nothing more than an extension of gossip from WHT between a circle of gossiping Nancys, like what you would find at a beauty salon between cackling hens. If it’s not BuyVM, RamHost or QuickWeb – they will bat you down because they somehow feel like it’s competition against two of the mentioned companies who do not even keep stock but somehow make it as the top providers quarter after quarter.

      Seriously? Criticizing how a site looks somehow makes it a “scam”? Look out prq.se, you may be losing customers by not having a site that looks good to the LEB crowd!
