LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

eNetSouth – $7 768MB OpenVZ VPS in San Jose or Chicago

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: June 20, 2011 @ 1:17 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated December 2011 — Both eNetSouth.com and eNSCloud.com stopped resolving since 11 November 2011. It has been confirmed that Brandon has done a runner.

eNetSouth Here is another company getting their gears up ready for the summer, and coming to LowEndBox asking us to help them off-load some stocks! Brandon from eNetSouth has released some LowEndBox-exclusive offers. Here are the deals:

  • LEBeVZ768 — Sign up links for San Jose CA (test IP: 98.158.22.164) or Chicago IL (test IP: 206.217.133.98)
  • 768MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • $7/month
  • LEBeVZ200 — Sign up link for Birmingham AL (test IP: 216.180.128.2)
  • 200MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 650GB/month data transfer
  • $26/year
  • LEBeVZ160 — Sign up link for Birmingham AL (test IP: 216.180.128.2)
  • 160MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • $23/year

San Jose VPS also comes with 2x IPv6. They are also giving away an iPod Nano and free 6 months VPS hosting at their summer away promotion. I must say that Brandon has done a great job this year in their previous offer. You can also vote them in our current top provider poll here. They have also been testing Xen HVM and KVM VPS — hopefully we will see them next month.

      • I agree. I had some issues with new nodes but they are resolved now. Just bad timing on special day. ;)

    • I guess Ikocka’s post was queued or something. This was made earlier this morning. We had a problem with a new node that is in the process of getting resolved. Actually two nodes that now do not any customers on them (moved them off to others) will be reloaded and put back out. The poor I/O performance was that bad with only 3 customers on the node.

      I call it leftovers from KVM testing.

        Brandon dealt with the issue professionally. I was temporary moved to a node with 30 MB I/O and now waiting to get a VPS on new node which is being reloaded. Will update you once I get new VPS.

  5. Brandon, you’re on a roll… you said June would be a hot month, and it is thus far…

  6. Hi, I’ve been wondering around the site for ages, tempted to get myself a LEB. Finally bit the bullet and decided to go with ENetSouth – right off the bat, I’m impressed. Quick and easy setup, absolutely amazing value for money and support is top-notch – outstanding response time!

    Like all beginners still very much wet behind the ears, I got stuck on my VPS! But you know it’s okay because I sent a ticket 10mins ago and it was resolved 5mins later and now here I am willing to spread the good word.

    If you are like me, daring to tread into the wonderful world of VPS’ after years of shared hosting, you can not go wrong with ENetSouth.

    Go for it.

    Brandon, I’m tempted to give you another shot.

    I ran into some issues during the past 2 months with them, specifically related to their NOC, but Brandon resolved them to my expectations. ;) He seems like a good guy, and seems to care about the satisfaction of his clients.

    Based on the positive reviews I’ve been reading over the past couple days, if you’re up for it Brandon, fire off an email to me with what price you can do for a 512MB cPanel box.

    Cheers

        I feel I was a bit harsh, and all I’ve seen are positive reviews, so I figure it was an unfortunate coincidence — thanks for the opportunity.

    • I looked for a email from you requesting this. Unless I’m loosing my mind (very possible) I can’t find it. When we colo or rent servers we get x-amount of TB a month.. If a customer is going to need 100% every month we need to order more from the DC to prevent overages. If you want to cover that at cost then send me a email and we will provide it for you.

          It’s sitting around 2.3Ghz 100% CPU since that time — It’s doing something — just don’t know what. I thought about giving it a reboot for him but would rather hear from LEA about it.

    • Yeah there’s a known issue with OSQA which generates some idiotic SQL that causes MySQL to go 100% at times. Due to ORM (arghhhh! much prefer straight SQL) it is actually a bit hard to track down where this is generated.

      I might need to spend some time looking at the code. Except I have no time…

      • You know what I say? Overcome it with brute force.. Would 4 to 6ghz make that 100% not last as long? hehe ;)

        Seriously though if you need some more juice drop me a email and I will hook you up.

      • Nope. Never overcome bad queries with brute force :) It’s just going to get uglier later on. I’ll take a look at the site over the weekend. Most likely just disable the places that causes bad queries.

      • Anyway. Looks like clicking on “Hottest” on the home page actually does not sort the questions by their hotness. Rather it means running the CPU to the hottest. I am disabling that for now and see how it goes.

        • It really shows that there is a issue somewhere if applied correctly. I think 8 times out of 10 a bad result is simply too many instances hitting the drives at once. But not always.. Other times though it can be the system as a whole is just to loaded. I’ve seen host nodes on the VMware side of things where most of the traffic is network and most of the instances are just eating RAM and PROC cycles (ie: Proxys, Routers, VPN) and there is not much disk I/O to be seen and it takes a hit.

          Another problem I don’t think some have looked at is if the provider is selling CPU slices based on hyperthreads. VMware is bad about committing CPU based on total cores and their threads. So if you have a single proc with 4 cores @ 2.0GHZ but each core is hyperthreaded it thinks it has not 8Ghz but 12Ghz to allocate. Once you get over ~7.5Ghz total CPU and into the HT it falls face first in the pit of no performance.

          I disable HT in the bios on every machine we have with a proc that supports it and just run off the cores. Much safer.

        • Interesting.
          Also, it seems the load calculation is a little bit weird in Vmware. Sometimes I see some processes running and using cpu, but my load stays about 0. In other configurations surely gets rised.

  20. Is something going on somewhere that I don’t know about? We have had more signups this evening alone than the whole time this offer has been up.

    Is someone big down or going out?

        If that is truly the case then any one who shows me proof they are coming here from that host I will cover their second month of service personally out of my pocket here at eNetSouth. I will let this offer stand from now till July 1st.

        Yeah, 60% price increase.

        I have a box there, excellent uptime (50+ days after MY restart) but it’s unfortunate they’re going down… Even though it’s only $1 difference, I have a feeling a lot of big customers will move, and overcrowding will take place at the very least.

        Brandon should accommodate you guys nicely :P Check your inbox in a few minutes btw. This comment reminded me.

        • Agreed. You can’t just up costs on customers in a few day “pay it or leave” situation. In any business that is a problem.

          ovz6 is brand new and has 0 customers on it as of right now so we have room.

  28. I will see what the deal is on rDNS. We have a lot of new clients servers coming online right now so it will settle down. If the load increases much more over where it is then I will put OVZ6 in the pool. It’s just sitting there with nothing on it ready to go.

    • Then why did you not say anything for weeks? ;)

      I disabled it and reenabled inside SolusVM. The OpenVZ node in San Jose was powered off and back on last night because of power company changes at that data center and I had to “modprobe tun” on the node. Even though I have that set to load at startup it did not so I will find out why.

      Anyways – you should be good to go now.

      As a side note “Phase II” of the power changes is scheduled for tomorrow July 4th at that DC – From what I am understanding it will only be a issue with their network gear and not affect server power sources like it did last night/this morning.

        • I’m not their electrical engineer so I can’t answer that. Since you are hinting we host out of a 2bit datacenter then why don’t you call 8×8 and ask them if you are so concerned?

          Their number is listed in page above.

          Another question for you since we are on the subject.. How many publicly traded fortune 500 companies do you host with?

    Is it possible to have one of those lower offers (23$ or 26$) in San Jose?

    I need a VPS to use as my own VPN (max two users and probably not at the same time) and because I’m in Asia at the moment, I guess US West Coast would be great!
