DrServer is a real name around the LowEnd scene having become popular with Abusive Cores and SugarVPS. ByteShack offers XenPV and XenHVM servers where you can pick which one you want on most orders (except the cheapest one). All servers are configured with 6 SSD drives in RAID10 ensuring speed and stability. You are free to run Windows on a XenHVM instance but you do need to bring your own license. Two of the newest brands are Dirt Cheap Ninja (which offers very cheap xen-based VPS) and XENstorage.com where you get loads of disk space for a low annual price. Servers are manually provisioned to prevent abuse, so please be patient in case you have to wait a little. Reviews of DrServer brands are usually very positive and they have been acclaimed for their great customer service more than once. They even became 7th in the 2014 Q2 Top Provider Poll! If you have a minute, check out all of their brands because the website designs are simply amazing.

        Hi,

        I am sorry but i will have to refuse you. We do not allow any type of legit/un-legit attacks from our network. It will save us booth time and money to say you no right away.

        IPs should work with hulu.

        If you can justify usage of IPs we can provide you requested amount.

        If you have any more questions feel free to ask and thank you for shown interest.

          All IPv4 IP’s will NEVER work with netflix or hulu because they are private. Only public IPs MAY work if allowed by all 3 parties.

      Please read the provider’s TOS. I can assure you that “legal hacking pentestin” is probably not allowed.

      Considering you mentioned “do u no if ur ip address work with hulu n craigslistcuz sum do not.” I can also make the reasonable assumption that you’re a scammer/grey-hat hacker :)

    I have found same offer on WHT last days. Maarten forgot to write they are accepting Bitcoins as well. Chicago VPS (19.99 USD/y) runs OK, but pretty slow – mainly hard disk is overloaded.

      Hi,

      Please run DD test with smaller file. Then do write test and read test. Storage is raid6 SSD cached. Big writes are penalized.

      I reccomend:

      dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=4k conv=fdatasync && rm -f test
      dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=2k conv=fdatasync && rm -f test
      dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=1k conv=fdatasync && rm -f test

      Please note by the nature of RAID6 only writes are affected, reads should be fine.

      Thank you

          Well, there are really big amount of reinstalls / provisioning as offer is out, however you should have 30-50 mb/s almost all the time. This is degradation x3 and it is not normal.

    Andrej & Maarten,

    Better remove both Cogent & PCCW for Dacentec/Lenoir – replaced by Telia (Charlotte _and_ Atlanta). In addition, the AS formerly known as nLayer nowadays leads to a combination of GTT & NTT routes.

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.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *
