Their domain was registered over a year ago and the WHOIS information is public. They are one of the few hosts that use the Virtualizor control panel, instead of the popular SolusVM.

      We feel sorry about this. Which payment method do you like to use? Currently we only accept PayPal payment, but we’d like to know more popluar payment methods and continue to improve our service.

        I’d like to see Bitcoins (ie. Bitpay WHCMS gateway like on other hostings).

          Sorry, we don’t have a plan to accept Bitcoins.:-)

          • why not? business is registered in DC, not new york (or Ukraine or somewhere else regulating bitcoins). servers are in california, not new york.

            it puzzles me as to why a merchant wouldn’t accept bitcoins as a form of payment. besides saving 3% or so from paypal payments, there is also no possibility of a chargeback.

            shouldn’t take more than 2 or 3 hours to set up, possibly 30-60 minutes, depending on your level of knowledge (fairly easy to follow the instructions given, at least on coinbase)

            Indeed, Bitcoins is the future for Internet payments and as I live in exotic country it’s the only one way to make a payment. Bitcoins are free, worldwide payments – without influance of banks, etc. It simply rocks! Implementing them into WHCMS is simple as you said.

    • EH VPS:

      Yes, we don’t allow the installation of Windows. According to the policy of Microsoft, a client can’t use his own license. But we don’t offer SPLA licenses.

        • EH VPS:

          For this questions, we have contacted a partner of Microsoft, and they said that only SPLA licenses can be used on VPS hosting.

        So are we unable to mount own ISO and install own system with own licence?

        • EH VPS:

          Yes, we don’t allow clients to use their own ISO images and install Windows with their own licenses.

      You can always install virtualbox and run windows. Performance wouldnt be good, though.

      March 22, 2015 @ 12:21 pm | Reply
    • EH VPS:

      There is no any hidden fee. The first billing is prorata. If an order is submitted after the 15th day of a month, the fee of the next month will be included on the first invoice.

    Is it dedicated cpu?can i use 1 cpu for 24×7?

    March 22, 2015 @ 4:31 pm | Reply
    • EH VPS:

      1 vCPU is 1 dedicated thread. You may use 100% of the thread for 24×7.

      March 23, 2015 @ 10:15 am | Reply
      • EH VPS:

        Sorry, we should correct this. You may use 100% of the thread. In order to prevent abuse, we may suspend or cancel a VPS hosting if its CPU usage continuously exceeds 90% multiplied by the number of vCPUs.

    Yesterday I ordered 8 VPS from LEB, I haevn’t had any problem, but last order with EH VPS was flagged for some unknown reason.

    I opened ticket, but customer service guys didn’t accept my order.
    they were so rude, they didn’t even reply to second message and they wouldn’t tell me why my order has been flagged. We are a UK registered limited company, I used our company details to order the VPS. why in the earth order has been flagged. EH VPS won’t tell me.

      We feel sorry about this. We use MaxMind for fraud check. If an order is flagged as fraud, we will manually check it. If the risk score is very high, we won’t approve it. We trust MaxMind.

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.
