Evorack – £2.49 128MB Xen VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 24, 2011 @ 12:19 pm, by LowEndAdmin

Evorack Ho Ho Ho! Another Christmas offer, and this time from Jonathan @ Evorack. Use coupon code LEBCHRISTMAS2011 to get £3.50/month recurring discount on any of their unmanaged Xen VPS hosting plans. It’s for Christmas, but it’s actually exactly the same discount for the last 4 times when they were featured on LowEndBox. Anyway, it gets you the following low end Xen VPS for £2.49/month (~USD$4.04). Direct sign up link.

  • 128MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • 1x IPv4 + /64 IPv6 (fully native & routed)
  • Xen/Custom panel

Payment in PayPal or credit card, and 20% VAT is payable for those in UK/EU. Servers in UK (test IP: 109.200.19.115 or 2a02:2658:1011:1::face). Evorack has had pretty good track record here on LowEndBox and they are owned by UK registered company “ABPNI Computer Solutions Ltd” since 2004.

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. Surprised to see no comments on the listing of such an awesome host. Its the best “bang for your bucks” as they say. Here are some of the tests

    • Something must have been busy when the above speedtest was run. I’m getting faster speeds now:

    @Asim Zeeshan, there’s nothing to complain about that’s why… :)

    I’ve been using Evorack since May for a VPS to watch BBC and for a backup DNS server. Jonny hasn’t let me down once. I’ve opened tickets at 1am UTC, only to get a response back in 15 minutes. These guys never sleep!

    Also bought one of these VPS:es, works brilliantly, the stuff I’ve tested with it so far. Also, as Clint said, support seems very responsive.

    • Hi There,

      It’s possible that you ran this test during our security zeroing. Please try again and you should get a much better result :)

      Thanks

  7. Registered and setup a VPS with this company yeaterday. However, the documentation is very sparse; no idea of the nameservers to point my domain to, no domain manager, etc. Submitted a ticket but I’ve had no reply.

    • Hi There,

      Evorack sells VPS (Virtual Private Servers). While some providers out there do indeed allow customers to register domains, this is outside of the scope of a VPS product.

      Thanks

    I just went ahead and ordered one myself. Can you please tell me where exactly are the servers located in the UK? As I can only find the information that it’s hosted in the United Kingdom but not were at – or – what data center they are using.

    Thanks
    -Chris

    • Hi Chris,

      Our servers are located in Gosport, England, with diverse 10G fibre links back to London :)

      Thanks

      • Dear Jonathan,

        If in case I want to upgrade my current VPS Plan to the higher one, will the discount still available? Or it back to the normal price?

        Regards,

        Erawan Arif Nugroho

        • We will of course provide the same discount (£3.50) to all of our unmanaged packages :)

          Cheers
