Update August 2010: The domain is no longer resolving since 10 August 2010. See this comment here.

ErectVPS Via this WHT offer. ErectVPS (yes, a weird name, especially when you google it and that Wikipedia entry comes at #1 on SERP) currently has 20% off recurring discount on any package, which makes their basic package a bargain at $6.36/month, after you apply the 20OFF promo code. You get

  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 400Gb/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Test IP goes to Joe’s Data Center in Kansas City. From WHOIS it looks like a UK based business, although the domain has only been registered for 4 months.

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.

    About a week ago, I received the following email from ErectVPS:

    Due to change of focus we have decided to close ErectVPS. As such we have to give notice of 30 days of contract termination. Please can we ask that you make sure you have a full backup of your data and cancel any Paypal subscriptions and have migrated by the 27th August 2010.

    Thank you for your business over the last 6 months

    This is unfortunate, as I was quite satisfied with my low end VPS from them. They were one of the very few VPS providers that allowed IRC usage, which I absolutely must have since I operate an IRC server. I am in the process of moving my sites and other services over to DMEHosting

  6. Their website has not be resolving since 10 August 2010 so I presume that they have pulled the plug.
