LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

ChicagoVPS – $5 1GB OpenVZ VPS in Chicago

Tags: , , Date/Time: October 6, 2011 @ 12:49 am, by LowEndAdmin

ChicagoVPS Got this from Chris a few days ago — ChicagoVPS‘s OpenVZ sale for October. Use promo code 1024 to bring their Professional OpenVZ plan to $5/month (from $14.95). Here is the direct sign up link, and it has

  • 1024MB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers with ColoCrossing in Chicago. IPv6 is still “coming soon”, and there is no burstable memory with their OpenVZ plans. Much has already been said from their previous offers. They do have some solid hardware and support, although performance can be hit and miss sometimes (kind of things you expect from probably highly over-subscribed OpenVZ plans). Check them out if you are looking for cheap VPS with lots of memory near US East Coast.

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. Can a current customer of their old $7 1 GB plans do some benchmarks and a review?
    I’m interested but have heard of spotty performance (as LEA said).

  2. although performance can be hit and miss sometimes

    I think the difference between ChicagoVPS and other providers is that they actually do care about performance.

    We had some early issues with our Chicago VPS and they took care of it. If performance dips, they work on improving performance. This is a rare thing in this industry.

    Most other budget providers would just leave it as is or let performance continue to drop and think it’s “good enough”

    • KiloServe,

      Thanks for the comments :) We do care about every single client and we do our best to give the best VPS’s at the lowest prices. It will be interesting to see how the other providers do with their 2GB Sale ;-).

      Regards,

      Chris

    I signed in the last promo and their services has been quite good.
    Good support, network and VPS is very stable.

  4. Jeff R:

    As far as I can tell, this is only a yearly discount of $9.95? So instead of knocking off $10/month, it only knocks off about 83 cents a month…

    October 7, 2011 @ 2:39 pm
    • rkrazy:

      Your math is off. The promo is for monthly billing. The discount saves you $9.95/month. Assuming you paid your monthly invoice 12 times the total saved per year would be $119.40

      If you are trying to purchase annually I would suggest contacting Chris @chivps to see if he will set you up with the discount on an annual basis. They’re good about working with clients.

    i ordered today this vps. i got the activation instantly and it was on-line in 2 minutes. to good to be true ! 1GB of dedicated ram in $5 per month ??!?!?!!
    but then when i ssh to the vps root i see that i got only 512 MB dedicated ram and a BURST of 1024 MB RAM.
    i opened a ticket to sales and there first answer was that i am mistaken.
    so i wrote back but no answer for almost 3 hours now.

    [root@XXXXXX ~]# df -h
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/simfs 30G 571M 30G 2% /
    none 512M 4.0K 512M 1% /dev —————————> 512 MB dedicated RAM instead of 1024 RAM

    [root@XXXXXX ~]# free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 1024 52 971 0 0 0
    -/+ buffers/cache: 52 971
    Swap: 0 0 0

    is there anyone on ChicagoVPS Management that can fix my vps today and give me 1024 MB dedicated RAM with no BURST RAM instead of the 512 MB dedicated RAM and 1024 MB Burst RAM that i got ???????

    ChicagoVPS Management please View Ticket #761664 and resolve this issue a.s.a.p.

    October 7, 2011 @ 11:20 pm
    • Hi,

      As stated in the support ticket that was answered several hours ago. Your Free -m shows that you have 1024M which is your 1G of RAM. df -h shows hdd space and what is used of it and where it is mounted. There is nothing for us to resolve.

      Thanks!

        Hi, thank you Jeremiah for your answer, maybe i was mistaken.

        Anyone, can you comment with your experience with Openvz vps , what do you think ? who is wrong ?

        another checking that i did in ssh the command :

        cat /proc/user_beancounters it gives me : vmguarpages 0 0 262144 2147483647 0

        Memory guaranteed = vmguarpages *4 /1024

        if you calculate –> 262144 *4 /1024 = 1024

        [root@XXXX ~]# free -m
        total used free shared buffers cached
        Mem: 1024 52 971 0 0 0
        -/+ buffers/cache: 52 971
        Swap: 0 0 0

        but when i type df -h it gives :

        [root@XXXXX ~]# df -h
        Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
        /dev/simfs 30G 571M 30G 2% /
        none 512M 4.0K 512M 1% /dev ———————->what is that 512 M ?????? doesn’t it show the Guaranteed ram installed in my vps?

        is there any other command that I’m missing to check the Guaranteed Ram installed ?
        ANYONE ,can you comment on this ?

        • You don’t know what these commands do. In the future, learn before you start talking.

          Lets break this down a bit.

          [root@XXXX ~]# free -m
          free – get RAM statistics.
          free -m – Get RAM statistics, present in megabytes.

          total used free shared buffers cached
          Total RAM available, RAM used, RAM free, RAM shared between processes, RAM used for buffers, RAM used for cache respectively.

          Mem: 1024 52 971 0 0 0
          Memory: 1024MB RAM, 52MB used, 971MB available, 0MB used in shared processes, 0MB used as buffer, 0MB used as cache.

          -/+ buffers/cache: 52 971
          52MB RAM used, so 971MB available for buffers or cache.

          Swap: 0 0 0
          You have no swap.

          Next,

          [root@XXXXX ~]# df -h
          Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
          /dev/simfs 30G 571M 30G 2% /
          none 512M 4.0K 512M 1% /dev

          df -h
          Get disk free space in human-readable format.
          Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
          What filesystem, the size of the filesystem, the space used, the space available, Percentage used, and path.

          /dev/simfs 30G 571M 30G 2% /
          The device simfs has 30GB of space total, 571MB used, 30GB rounded free, 2% used, is your root filesystem.

          none 512M 4.0K 512M 1% /dev
          No device mountpoint, 512MB allocated, 4KB used, 512MB available, 1% used, your /dev filesystem. Y’know, /dev/urandom, /dev/null, etc.

          So, you thought a virtual filesystem for device interfaces was your RAM, when you decided to take what disk free said over what free had to say about your RAM usage.

    ChicagoVPS management and Jeremiah i’m really sorry for this post ! i was mistaken ! sorry again !
    i didn’t know that there is a “vzfree utility” exist that i can check the actual RAM Guranteed from openvz !

    as asf suggested in his comment-reply ,i installed vzfree utility and as you can see below the results it is 1024 MB Guaranteed RAM installed !

    [root@XXXXX vzfree-0.1]# vzfree

    Kernel:   2048.00M    2.48M 2045.52M

  8. this is getting addictive, deal too good to pass up, so grabbed one to add to my cluster… might grab more later :)

    • Gotta collect them all?

      October 8, 2011 @ 3:19 pm
      • Yeah already have 3x buyvm vps for my cluster but now added one for chicagovps vps geekbench comparisons was 3500 vs 3600 with chicago so pretty close considering buyvm is 2 cores on dual xeon e5520 vs chicago is 4 cores on xeon x3450. Didn’t plan for it but they’ll all Chicago based for VPS cluster hosting http://centminmod.com :)

        Just need a few more vps for the mysql replication cluster end ^_^

  10. rkl:

    For someone like me in the UK, this is an amazing deal so I just signed up. I particularly like the 1GB RAM, allowing me to pick 64-bit CentOS 6. Some notes in the initial playing around with the VPS:

    * You pay via Paypal, so I presume each future monthly payment would be taken that way as well. No idea how long the promo price will last though – I guess I’ll be notified if the price changes (hint to ChicagoVPN – if it “runs out”, I probably won’t keep the VPS).

    * They use 8.8.8.8 and 4.2.2.2 in /etc/resolv.conf – I’m a bit surprised they don’t have their own DNS servers.

    * The CentOS 6 continuous release repo hasn’t been applied, so that’s the first thing you need to do – get it from http://mirror.centos.org/centos/6/extras/x86_64/RPMS/centos-release-cr-6-0.el6.centos.x86_64.rpm

    * There’s no swap space allocated (and no /proc/partitions either, so fdisk is a no go), so I’ll have to work out how to get some swap in there, since 1GB RAM is probably the bare minimum for a 64-bit Linux.

    * No SELinux on the system (I often disabled it anyway), though iptables is up and running.

    * /var/log/messages reveals a permission issue on the very first boot:
    Oct 9 19:07:18 chi-vps23 init: Failed to spawn splash-manager main process: unable to open console: Permission denied
    I don’t think this is a problem, but maybe I’ll raise an issue with ChicagoVPS about it.

    Overall, my first impressions are quite favourable, so now it remains to see how reliable the service is. Having fast and full root access to a VPS in another country is great – I’ve already told my colleagues about :-)

    October 9, 2011 @ 3:53 pm
    • Seems that is your first VPS, or at least your first OpenVZ VPS.

      In that kind of virtualization, there is no swap.
      Also, the operative systems are templates, and none of them are updated.
      And selinux AFAIK isn’t compatible with OpenVZ.
      About DNS, IMHO is better to use that public DNS servers than a custom DNS. And you can setup your own DNS cache if you want, but the public DNS servers are at <15ms ping from your VPS, so the queries are really fast.

      Good luck with your new setup

      October 11, 2011 @ 5:12 am
  11. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE this service! My third VPS (One’s being cancelled right now, no need for it!) from them and I haven’t had any major problems except with the first week when they had major problems, but since the first week they have been flawless! Support is generally really quick and downtime, I haven’t even noticed any if there was any.

    I have even recommended you guys to a couple friends, and I know that at least one has a VPS or two!

    Keep up the great work! :D

  12. star_y:

    when i run command iptables :

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.2.0.0/24 -o venet0 -j SNAT --to 96.8.122.112
    

    I get error like this :

    iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 10.2.0.0/24 -j SNAT --to 96.8.1 22.112 iptables v1.3.5: can't initialize iptables table `nat': Table does not exist (do  you need to insmod?) Perhaps iptables or your kernel needs to be upgraded.
    

    Already sent tickets but the answered notyet fix this error

  13. Leon:

    Is there vtun support?

    October 12, 2011 @ 6:43 pm
  14. B:

    A big question — if we take advantage of this wonderful offer, what happens at renewal — after what I assume is a 1 year period?

    Are we “expected” to like the service so much that we gladly go from paying $5/month to $15/month, rather than flee to a cheaper offering?

    Or is the discount “perpetual” for as long as we remain customers?

    Or am I getting this all wrong, and the discount really only applies to the first billing cycle?

    I’m asking because I DON’T generally like flitting around, and would prefer to stay with a good provider.

    Thanks in advance…

    October 13, 2011 @ 5:42 pm
  15. B:

    I just found a September post from Jeremiah here saying that “The cost of the VPS is for the life of the account so long as the account do not go under default.”

    But is that stated anywhere at the ChicagoVPS site?

    October 13, 2011 @ 6:19 pm
    • rm:

      Probably because it is obvious, as every offer posted here on LEB is recurring, unless specifically mentioned otherwise. You must be new here. :P

      October 14, 2011 @ 9:55 am
      • B:

        Hardly “obvious”, rm! Offers into perpetuity are rare in any industry. (When’s the last time your cable or phone provider or grocer kept the same price forever?) Yes, I’m “new here” but that doesn’t change basic economics or contract law, etc. I’ll try this again — is there ANYPLACE on the ChicagoVPS site that mentions the detailed terms of the offer, how long it is good for, how and if the rate is locked down, etc. ?

        Also, where on LowEndBox does it mention that every offer posted is recurring in perpetuity?

        Thanks…

        October 14, 2011 @ 12:44 pm
        • rkrazy:

          B ~ the recurring monthly price is stated on your invoice(s) and in the client area

          > Also, where on LowEndBox does it mention that every offer posted is recurring in perpetuity?

          That’s my point exactly, because every offer is recurring, LEA only mentions when a rare offer is NOT recurring (although I think he doesn’t post such offers at all, which is good by me).

          You don’t complain that a provider or LEA doesn’t mention in every post that you need to have a computer, or need to have internet access to connect to your VPS, do you. :)

          October 14, 2011 @ 1:53 pm
        • Hello,

          Yes the pricing is for lifetime.

          Regards,

          Chris

          October 14, 2011 @ 2:17 pm
        • B:

          Okay okay, I guess it’s a relatively informal deal then. I guess I could always print out this thread. :)

          Thanks, rm, rkrazy, and Chris. Newbie Out…

          October 14, 2011 @ 2:34 pm
      • Actually LEA made a big deal about accepting only recurring offers during the last time he rewrote how he accepts offers. I’m down to 5% of battery s someone else is going to have to find the link or I will later when I get a plug in.

  16. Dan:

    I want to know. Promo is only for first month or for year. Say i pay 5$ for one month, may i renew second month for 5$ more or next 11 month for 55$.

    October 13, 2011 @ 7:02 pm
    • john:

      when you order, it say recurring……

      October 13, 2011 @ 11:38 pm
      • Dan:

        Which means, for my lifetime i am going to pay 5$ per month rather than usual 14$ right?

        October 14, 2011 @ 6:07 am
        • yes, recurring price will be 5/monthly.

    I grabbed one of these and it has been running at fantastic speed and performance without any interruptions for 45 days now.

    I am very very happy with this service. ¡Thank you ChicagoVPS!

    December 2, 2011 @ 1:06 pm
  19. Hi, I think it’s only for first month.
    I’m trying to order for 1 year, but it only give me discount for $8.45.
    So I think it only for first month.
    Some one has try this over 1 month?
    Thanks

    December 28, 2011 @ 6:23 am
    • Hello,

      This is a lifetime deal just not first month. The coupon is only good for month to month, but you can open a support ticket and we can adjust for a one year term.

      Regards,

      Chris
