ElicitServers Via this WHT offer. ElicitServers is currently running a 25% off recurring discount offer using promo code OPENER. Their “VPS-1” package comes down to CAD$5.21/month after the discount (USD$5.09). It has

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

Servers in Montreal in Canada (speed test files here). From their VPS page it seems that they are making their own control panel (“We are constantly working on ways to add features to help our clients with VPS management”). Domain registered in August 2010, and sadly again it is hosted on a cPanel box with both NS on the same server.

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.

  1. I wouldn’t recommend this. It seems really wrong, also it is new!

    $5.00+ for 128 MS OpenVZ VPS? You can get 128 MB OpenVZ from other more established providers for like $15/year. They are also new, I don’t view this as a lowend offer :)

    • I would like to know what other people think as well. I don’t like this offer because it seems really expensive since it’s using OpenVZ.

      $5/mo leaves more profit, so in theory more sustainability.

      I wouldn’t pay $5/month for such tiny resources, unless there’s something extra special about netelligent.

    • Yeah. Initially LowEndBox was about low-spec VPS and dedicate servers, and most of them are cheap :) I don’t find anything wrong with $5/month 128MB box as long as they perform well.

      However I’ll rule this provider out for now as it is too new for my liking.

        Yeah, an unknown provider might be worth a punt if it’s super cheap, but for this money there are better offers (on paper at least) out there.
