LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

DigitalLinux – $5 OpenVZ VPS with 128MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 26, 2008 @ 1:21 am, by LowEndAdmin

DigitalLinx.com Found this shop on WHT as well. DigitalLinx’s Basic VPS plan costs $4.99/month, and you get

  • 128MB guaranteed / 384MB burstable
  • 5GB storage
  • 100GB monthly data transfer
  • CentOS, Debian, Fedora Core, Gentoo, OpenSUSE, Ubuntu and Slackware

It’s OpenVZ/HyperVM based so you can run LxAdmin on it. Domain has existed for a while and currently registered by someone in Pakistan. Not sure where the servers are. Their main site is at Kansas City, but their NS are at Dallas.

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.

    Monthly data transfer is 100GB, not MB.

  2. Thank you for the free advertisement. The domain is registered to an individual who happens to be from Pakistan, it’s not registered under our company’s name since back in 2001 we didn’t register a company until 2003. And yes we have couple of servers in different datacenters. Currently we host our customers in Kansas.
    And thank you for the correction Michal.

    Wow, didn’t take long for that one to go away. Now the cheapest one on their web site is 8.95. More specs, but no longer in the running for the “low end box” category. Trying to pull up the one you have linked results in a “product not found” error.

  4. @Wolf — well talk about having a really confusing website…

    The cheapest plan is now the $6.99 VPS 1 plan with 256MB guaranteed + 512MB burstable + other upgrade from the previous plan I’ve posted… Did they change it again?
