LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

DashingHost Via this WHT offer. DashingHost continues to provide some cheap VPS deals in Los Angeles CA, starting from $8.97/3 months, which I reported back in April. One level up is still within my listing criteria — $14.97/3 months for the following VPS

  • 128MB guaranteed/192MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 150GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Order their Bronze VPS here. Probably not the best West Coast offer out there, when you have YardVPS in Los Angeles and BuyVM in Fremont, which offer better spec VPS (on paper) at 1/4 the price. Has anyone actually tested DashingHost since last time?

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.

    I’ve been with them for like half a year now, on a 80M plan. Pretty good uptime, and decent disk I/O; ticket response time is not the best, but acceptable to me. I’m actually hosting a static production site, a personal wordpress blog, and a backup DNS server there. IMHO, VPS providers like dashinghost and ramhost are very good low end choices, unless your only concern is to push the prices to the bottom. Yardvps and buyvm are not bad considering their price tags, only thing is that they oversold too much to make any money and that does hurt performance and stability.

    • I guess I should shine some light on this :)

      None of our nodes are oversold and only a few are actually ‘busy’. The only reason any of them are even busy (loads around 3 – 4) is because they are pending a reorganizing :) Since node05, each batch of plans we sell goes on a completely dedicated node just for that plan, which lets us balance resources nicely as well as track abuse quickly.

      We colocate all of our equipment so while we sell out of stock a lot, we own everything and get unbelievable deals from Hurricane Electric meaning that even our cheapest plans are making us very good profit margins.

      Anyone trying to offer our plans on rented equipment is nothing short of a dreamer and I’d personally be scared of picking up anything with them.

      Best of luck to everyone!

    My BuyVM also performs as expected of the specs not only on paper. :)

  3. I don’t want to be a critisizer but BuyVM and other providers do have lower prices for more spec, even if those may be oversold :)OpenVZ for this much? Meh, it’s probably oversold as well, just not that much.

    Is it just me or is their site design horrible? Just my personal opinion.

      It does look horrible.

      Its by Payton, and ever since he got caught not being original and unique, which is what he sold to clients, hes had to come up with his own ideas with actually look very ugly.
