LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

EDIS – €5.20 ($7) 512MB RAM 30GB Storage in Sweden, Germany and Chicago, USA

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: February 14, 2013 @ 11:17 am, by Liam

William, from EDIS GmbH, recently contacted us with this special ‘storage’ promotion available in Sweden, Germany or Chicago, USA only. We are told that this offer is exclusive to LowEndBox and LowEndTalk.

KVM STARTER Storage

  • 512MB RAM
  • 30GB HDD (Instead of 5GB)
  • 2000GB Bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • /112 IPv6 Addresses
  • KVM/EDIS Manager
  • €5.20 /Month | Coupon: STARTER30GB
  • Direct Signup
  • Location: Sweden, Germany and Chicago.

N.B: When ordering, this offer is only available in either Sweden, Germany or Chicago, USA.

EDIS are an Austrian based web hosting company who have been featured on LowEndBox many times before. They came a relatively high 5th in our recent 2012 Q4 Poll. This particular offer is only available at their Sweden, Germany and Chicago, USA locations; as these locates have unused resources which need filling. Stock is limited with only about 50 of these plans available, but depending on the success of the offer, it may be restocked. We actually reviewed EDIS in July 2012 and I have found this recent review on WebHostingTalk. As ever, do share your experiences below!

Sweden and German based servers will be on a Gigabit uplink but Germany is limited to 100Mbit. William informs us that IPv4 reverse DNS is settable in their control panel but, at present, they don’t support IPv6 reverse DNS. They accept payments via Credit cards and Paypal. If you’d like to find out more information, do take a look at their Terms and Conditions.

    William is a top bloke also and a very active member on the LET forums. I have a number of services with EDIS (all in Europe) and have only had positive experiences with them.

        No they don’t, they have them listed – but you can’t order them all (just tried), OpenVZ only offers me:
        Dallas, Amsterdam, France, Canada, Chicago, Miami, Germany and Australia – 8 there.
        The other (Xen non-lowend) offers have a few more (16 total) but duplicates (2x London, 2x San Jose, 2x Dallas etc.)

        The locations are mainly US based while we cater a global audience with global locations, not really compareable ;-)

          You just forgot check they cloud locations :) I mean total. Seems all EDIS locations also on Austria,not really located on these countries, so not a big deal :)

          At least they use real IP from real data centers around the World,not use the same subnet for all locations :)

      • Hi Lucas,
        EDIS offers 14 physical locations worldwide and soon 2 more (Amsterdam + Moscow, RU)
        We just limited this offer to 3 locations only.
        Cheers,
        Gerhard

        We always score in the top 10 in benchmarks and now also use E5 nodes, as well as always at least 8 HDDs in RAID10, often with very large ramcaches and/or 10/15k drives – Sure, it’s not the top 3 result but we are consistent across all locations and nodes.

    @Lucas:

    All VPS are PHYSICALLY in these countries, we do not use any “fake IPs” and NOT all is hosted in Austria (only Austrian VPS are), for example Chile:

    9 gtd.santiago2.san.seabone.net (195.22.221.86) 256.391 ms 410.651 ms 405.604 ms

    12 sgc1.ge1-46.cn1.gtdinternet.com (190.196.125.18) 397.994 ms 408.753 ms 411.967 ms
    13 * * *
    14 10-52-235-37.static.edis.at (37.235.52.10) 262.140 ms 263.024 ms 265.667 ms

    (san = Santiago de Chile, capital of Chile)

    Or Germany:
    11 tnggbt.curie.router.frankfurt.de.velia.net (85.195.113.6) 29.006 ms 29.059 ms 30.094 ms
    12 100-214-255-158.static.edis.at (158.255.214.100) 38.856 ms 35.690 ms 32.997 ms

    France:
    11 ge-1-3-0-300.rt0.th2.fr.goscomb.net (93.89.94.190) 49.159 ms 46.931 ms 46.869 ms
    12 250-215-255-158.static.edis.at (158.255.215.250) 57.180 ms 52.986 ms 50.555 ms

    So again, we do NOT use any sort of fake IPs or geolocation (like OVH does) – We COLOCATE our own servers in all of these countries.

      I can vouch for Edis anytime!!

      I have 4 VPS with them and one from Chile. (im from Chile)

      And i can assure you their servers here are collocated o leased with iHosting, a company based in Viña del Mar near Santiago, in Chile.

      February 14, 2013 @ 2:20 pm | Reply
      • William:

        Colocated :) (we even paid Chiles crazy import taxes, nearly 50%!)
        iHosting is a top notch provider, one of our best – i have the guys in Skype, chatting often about this and that, top provider – if you ever need dedicated servers in Chile just contact them.

  6. Vouch for Edis! Have a few vps with them in different locations, excellent! Support is also very fast and good. Their Looking Glass is also very nice. Overall, on my top list.

  7. I have many 128MB kvms with Edis and the product does exactly what it is supposed to. Super fast delivery, friendly staff, service quality and customer support meet and in some cases exceed expectations. The offering is definitely too competitive for purchase value. I have more faith in my kvm than other dedicated services I have somewhere else.

    I love edis.at so much!:) Really nothing to say about their services. Maby few words – its great!
    No downtimes, small ping, no problems with VPS, no ANY problems. Wew, with edis i am sinse 2012, and i recommend to use this ISP. Always good speed VPS, edis.at have really great benchmarks (if anybody want, i can show some);

    And few questions to William:
    Do you planning to increase port speed for other locations (germany?? ^_^)
    Do you planning to change your CP? and add more guides, information, make forum, blogs?

    Edis.at big ‘-‘ = bad (not informative for now) website + bad control panel (only for me) i mean very hard to find hot to visite it. All other (beside control panel) AWESOME!

    We’re a recent company customer in Germany with KVM in Switzerland. So far overall positive experience.

    + Many many jurisdictions to chose from (who cares about single countries these days?)
    + Support responsiveness on a Sunday was maybe an hour (Sunday is a no-work day in christianity influenced countries)
    + Good range of packages to choose from (I only looked at KVM though)
    + Germans can use bank withdrawal from Worldpay for comfort. I nicely got called up by EDIS to resolve my question if this was available at all. Talk about customer relations.
    + Company is around for longer. This tells me something about management, otherwise they would go bust. I like this kind of ‘reliable’.
    + Large traffic volume included, fair over-traffic pricing (I think EUR 12,50 per TB)
    + Colo in Zurich/Switzerland is a nice datacenter with very good peerings

    Some negatives in descending order of my own relevance estimation:

    – KVM console over VNC is not encrypted, i.e. you leak console passwords to three letter agencies
    – Some quirks with KVM virtualization remain (console on/off only with powercycle of VM)
    – No IPv6 reverse lookup, will get you perm error with some people’s mail servers
    – IPv6 “/112” means that you have 2^16 IPv6 addresses assigned but documentation is not clear that your interface has to be with /48 subnet setting, otherwise you will wonder why the IPv6 gateway is not reachable
    – Noisy network segment with many ARPs and e.g. NetBIOS probes from possibly not fully correctly configured neighbouring VMs. Cautious administrators might want to firewall this off and set a static ARP entry for the gateway.

    Pricing in view of everything is adequate, would buy again.

      Another way to do this is to configure your interface with the correct /112, and then fist
      ip -6 route add gate:way:ip::0/48 dev eth0
      and then (must be issued afterwards)
      ip -6 route add default via gate:way:ip::1 dev eth0

  11. I have 5 KVM servers with Edis, they are all located physically in the countries they advertise. I also have servers with another 10+ companies and I consider Edis to be one of the most stable comparing to the others.

    William have accommodated all of my support requests so far.

    I vouch for them.

    @Lucas – Saying that they are not physically located, when they are, is a cheap shot, this is a main factor for many people when choosing a VPS, so making such a false claim sounds like angry competition campaign.

    I have several different EDIS virtual machines, both KVM and vserver, in three different EU locations.
    Every contact I had with EDIS was pleasant. Very commendable and competent.

    Two small things that could be mentioned are a/ the lack of Reverse IPv6 and b/ the lack of IPv6 in the vserver packages – those are advertised as having an IPv4 address, so completely truthful. If you want IPv6, then go for the KVM products.

    I have been received one ip and credentials to “my new kvm” 18 hours ago (ubuntu image), the IP is not responding, the vnc is inactive and the control panel show only the name of the service but without any tool, no ticket support found, an email was send to support@edis 3 hours ago and they don’t even send back an automatic reply. Edis dont work weekends?

    Just after have clicked submit my previous comment I receive a new mail with new credentials. Now the control panel is working and the server is ready. In the response email (from support) say the system was unable to create correctly the box and includes some extra free days as courtesy. Please note: I have received the first notification 18 hours ago, but I have sent an email to support 3 hours ago so the real delay is 3 hours in my case not 18 hours.

    The TOS says something about European VAT being included in the price. Do non-EU clients have to pay this? If not, how do they get it removed? Thanks.

    • William:

      VAT is not included in price and added at checkout, if you are not in the EU you automatically don’t pay it.
