eFree2Net – $4.75 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 3, 2010 @ 5:10 am, by LowEndAdmin

eFree2Net Via this WHT offer. eFree2Net is currently having a 50% off recurring discount promotion at the moment. Use promo code WHT-openvz to get their “Basic Linux Package” (Ordering Link) for $4.75/month. Here is the spec

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

On the WHT post it says they have “colocation service with ThePlanet, Softlayer and Seattle”, although the listed IP addresses are ThePlanet/Softlayer in Dallas and Take2Hosting in San Jose. Domain and website both claims to be from 2000, and the design of the website does remind me of sites from that era. Registered by this individual “Nilson Chia” in St. Cloud MN. Or Nilson Sam? Or “Kengteck Chia” from Malaysia? (googling the last one for more details).

They do appear to have servers all over the place.

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.

    Probably because it has the word “free” in the domain name. ;)

  3. @insraq — that’s exactly what some of you guys buy cheap VPS for — to get pass the great firewall :)

  4. @LEA: Yes. In fact most people would go for Burst as their plan is so cheap and the bandwidth is good. I’m surprised that great firewall becomes so famous :-)
    SL and T2 DC have good connection from China, but I have no idea why their website is blocked. Maybe @Gary you are right.

  8. Early 2001, it was a portal site. 2002 shows more of a host site.

    I placed an order last night at efree2net but it was canceled because im from ‘kuwait’ and they suspect fraud … which is the first time I get such a treatment for such a reason so is this a really good reason to cancel an order? and is there any other hosts that would do so ? so I can save my time and money instead of wasting it on some racists :-)
