Justin, from Cloudieweb, is back with another exclusive offer for the LowEndBox readers. Similar to their previous offer, they are promoting their KVM VPS with SSD storage. This time the servers are located in Buffalo with ColoCrossing. This is limited to the first 50 orders!

IPv6 is included with the offer and BitCoins payments are accepted. The plan also comes with DDoS Protection of up to 20GBPS through RioRey.

The Offer

  • 512MB RAM
  • 512MB Swap
  • 1xvCPU
  • 12GB SSD space
  • 500GB transfer
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4
  • /64 IPv6
  • Linux or Windows
  • KVM/SolusVM
  • Coupon: CYBERWEEK
  • $4/month
  • $40/year
  • Linux Order Link

Cloudieweb was founded in early 2014 providing shared, reseller, VPS and dedicated servers. They are registered in Houston, Texas under Nerdie Media LLC with EIN 47-2120610. Last time we were told that they were registered in Virginia as Cloudieweb LLC with EIN 47-3102968. We have featured them twice already, and the community was questioning their legal entity back then. There is not much evidence if service is good or not, so we encourage our readers to share their thoughts with the rest of us.

Host node for this plan uses Dual CPU Intel Xeon E5-2620v2, 96GB RAM, 3 x 1TB SSD and 1Gbps Dedicated Uplink. We have no information on what RAID is being used for their setup.

Payment methods accepted are: Credit Cards, PayPal, BitCoin, Bank Transfer. Windows and Linux OS are supported. We are told that live chat, phone and Ticket support are available 24/7. That is a bold claim, and hopefully turn around of tickets is fast. Kindly read their Terms And Conditions, Acceptable Use Policy and Refund Policy before making any purchase.

  7. Do you allow bulk mailing on your vps?

    • We prefer to stray away from bulk mailers unless they have proof of positive reputation.

    Very solid host. Even helped me with some configuration issues I was having (even though it is unmanaged). Good uptime and speed so far.

    Not recommend this provider, They acted like a scammer.
    Yesterday i purchased windows VPS and after some hours noticed the bad support and limited bandwidth via RDP and submit a ticket for cancel and refund. Then….
    They terminated my service and did not refund my money, Why? I got this text : ( I only taked a look at vps via RDP for only 2 hours, did not installed any applications and did not run any services, Its was fresh )

    • Hi Mehran,

      I apologize for the issues you may have incurred with our services, however, your VM was found sending spam within hours of signup and got listed on 4 different RBL’s, included Spamhaus.

      We have strict policies on forbidden spammers on our network which leads to instant termination.

  11. Currently it sounds like WordPress is the best blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

  12. Terminal:

    “Support” terminated & wiped a VPS 30 minutes after signup due to a pricing error on their side with this promo code.

    Sent me my console root password in a plaintext e-mail.

    Going with someone else who understands at least bare minimum in customer service & account security.

    This guy is a total scammer. Seam Melton also owns http://nerdiamedia.com steals peoples money. I know from personal experience. The guy uses other people software & modifies it & calls it his own. Don’t trust this individual with your money. He also owns the line of NRG such as http://nrgthemes.com

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.
