CrownCloudArjit, from CrownCloud, has recently sent in a very nice KVM offer featuring not only a large amount of RAM, but also a decent amount of bandwidth! Because stock on that one is limited, he included some other offers as well!

Plan 1 (KVM-2048) – 5 max

  • 4 CPU Cores (E3-1270v2, FS)
  • 2GB RAM RAM
  • 30GB RAID10 Diskspace
  • 3TB Bandwidth

These offers are hosted on servers with dual Intel CPUs (models vary), 32GB of RAM and 4 x 1TB HDD in RAID10. CrownCloud does not offer IPv6 for KVM servers in Phoenix yet, but it is coming in Q4 2013 according to their wiki.

CrownCloud accepts payments via PayPal, PerfectMoney, Bitcoins (via Bit-Pay) and Litecoins (open a ticket after ordering to get the address to pay to). Their ToS/AUP can be found on their wiki. Windows users should bring their own license and post a link to the ISO in the order notes (or open a ticket later).

In addition to Phoenix, CrownCloud offers KVM VPS in Frankfurt (Germany) and Los Angeles (CA, USA). They also provide OpenVZ VPS in Frankfurt (Germany), Los Angeles (CA, USA), Kansas City (MO, USA) and Lenoir (NC, USA). Check their website for more information on these offers, there’s more LEB-range products available there!

    Its possible to order a server and after the installation you check the load of it (and refund/suspend if to high)?
    I dont want waste the $7 for a VPS suspended after few days cuz of the higher load.

    “8 CPU Cores (E5620, FS)”
    yet by the order link it says “4 Shared cores of E3-1270v2”

    • Hey rm,
      I’ve emailed Marteen for the correction, my fault actually, as this was initially a LA offer which got sold out and we had to switch the offer to Phoenix last moment.

    I managed to grab Plan 1 – it’s fast, everything works seamlessly, and staff responded to my support tickets quickly.
    No problems – everything is fast, and Windows runs perfectly with it.
    Been using for a while now, would definitely recommend this!

    • Hi,
      I’ve added 2 stock now, they were bought by someone on the first day of order but were never paid up for. So I’ve released them up for sale again.

        • The stock was added and sold out. I’ve added the final 2 of that plan (KVM-2048) in stock as the previous 2 were not paid for and were sitting unpaid for more than a day.

  16. Your 256 KVM used to be $15, now $18. What happened?

    October 12, 2013 @ 3:58 pm | Reply
    • Different location, different server cost so the price is $18/year for Phoenix, Germany is still $15/year :)

  24. Hi, really interested in these deals. But how can you charge $7 for both KVM-2048 and KVM-1024? Is there some difference in features that is not apparent on the website?

    October 14, 2013 @ 8:11 pm | Reply
    • Hey,
      The 2 GB plan is only available in limited quantities in our Phoenix location. KVM-1024 pricing has been dropped down to $5 in Phoenix for a while now, site needs to be updated though :)

  31. Worst service in the world…

    I lost quite a bit of money and time dealing with these idiots..

    • Hi,
      We did deliver what you asked for, there were delays in between when the datacenter ran out/was short of IPs and we had to get you IPs from elsewhere and get it announced at the datacenter which takes 1 – 3 days minimum since all the upstreams need to announce the block/accept it. We did credit you back the time you lost during the wait on each of your servers irrespective of weather they were affected by this wait or not (at this time, you had 2 servers running perfectly fine) after this a server which you rented out had one of the HDDs fail which we got replaced and again credited back the time, we’ve done it all possible from our end to keep things as smooth as possible including setting up a DHCP server on each machine so that your VMs can get IPs assigned to them easily. Really sorry this did not work out, perhaps another host from LEB can accommodate you without any issues or bumps along the way.

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.
