domVPS has been around for a while, with listings going back to 2011! These offers are all hosted on fully owned hardware, packing: an Intel Xeon X3450 @ 2.67GHz CPU, 32GB DDR3 ECC RAM, 4x 500GB hard drives configured in RAID10, and a 1Gbit/s uplink. I’ve seen several Raspberry Pi offers, but those were all colocation offers. To my knowledge, this is the first hosted Raspberry Pi offer we have! And it’s a nice offer at that. By default, SMTP ports will be closed to prevent spam/mass mail. If SMTP is required it can be opened by submitting a support ticket! Feel free to share your experiences with this offer in the comments, or at LowEndTalk!

domVPS accept PayPal for payments. They also offer a 7 day money back guarantee. They have recently setup two-factor authentication for clients to access their WHMCS billing account, by using time-based keys that can be used with Google Authenticator. The two-factor auth is an opt-in service which is not required by default. Proxy, VPN and Adult content is allowed. IRC clients only.  As usual, take a look at their Terms of Service before signing up.

      I use one as my mediaserver here at home and my DC hosts one for me at there datacenter in Oostkamp Belgium, use it as a web/mail/dns server.
      Its limited by the not so fast cpu… good for static stuff, not so good dynamic.
      But its a dedicated (small) machine, just for you…

    For the Raspberry Pi – what make / class of SD Card? And any chance of extra (USB) storage on them? Anyone who gets one please post SD card stats!

    I like the idea of the Raspberry Pi setup, but would prefer an option to eventually own the machine after X months of paying. Tough to justify $11/month when you could buy and build a Raspberry Pi machine for basically 8 months of service at that rate.

    • You’re forgetting the cost of the colocating it and power and IP space and bandwidth though…

    why not just buy a Raspberry Pi and EDIS will host it for free?

    • Lucas:

      FREE is not a FREE ,Edis a tricky with it, cost of IP, BW etc applied

      January 3, 2014 @ 2:46 am | Reply
      • Wrong. EDIS is hosting the Raspberry completely free of charge. Including Power, Bandwidth and Management to Hardreset your PI. Stop talking BS if you have no clue, thanks.

      • Lucas:

        EDIS also increase prices too much, and remove cheap yearly deals now all out of LEB range..

    • ub3rst4r:

      Then why don’t you go with EDIS and stop complaining about what domVPS charges? If domVPS wants to stay in business for a while, then they need to charge something.

    Is there an advantage renting raspberry pi compared to Atom dedi for example?

    January 3, 2014 @ 7:52 am | Reply
    • Hybrid:

      No, the atom’s at ovh or whereever will beat the Pi hands down. Prices are similar but you get a lot more with the atom than with the Pi.

        Thanks for confirming my thoughts.
