ExpertVM – $6.99 256MB KVM VPS in Singapore, Asia

Tags: , , , Date/Time: June 27, 2013 @ 11:31 am, by Liam

ExpertVMCaric, from ExpertVM, informs us that they have recently restocked their KVM packages. Two of these KVM plans, one yearly and one monthly, are priced within the LEB price limits.

KVM1

  • 128MB RAM
  • 1 CPU Core
  • 10GB Diskspace
  • 40GB Bandwidth
  • 10Mbps Port Speed
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • KVM / SolusVM
  • $40/Year | Direct Signup Link
KVM2

  • 256MB RAM
  • 1 CPU Core
  • 20GB Diskspace
  • 80GB Bandwidth
  • 10Mbps Port Speed
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • KVM / SolusVM
  • $6.99/Month | Direct Signup Link

ExpertVM featured the same two plans back in September 2012. Prior to that, they had listed a few OpenVZ deals in both 2011 and 2012. Whilst Caric didn’t send in any OpenVZ deals, a quick look on their website shows that the KVM2 specs are available on their OpenVZ platform for the same price. Offers from Singapore, and asia in general, are pretty rare. We have only listed one other company providing servers on the small island nation of Singapore. Looking back at previous threads, ExpertVM have attracted nothing but good reviews.

We reported on our last offer that they were “resolving some technical issues with their upstream regarding IPv6”. Unfortunately, it looks as though IPv6 is no longer seems offered. ExpertVM have already posted these offers on LowEndTalk. Users on that thread noted the network performed better than other asian providers but felt the bandwidth was too low. This reflects the cost of bandwidth in Asia compared with America and Europe. How much bandwidth will you really use anyway?

    for a vpn 80gb is ok, if you don’t plan on constant video streaming or torrenting, also for a nameserver or a small website 80gb/month is also ok, many people look for the ‘large’ bandwidth offers, but many do not even use it… i can’t remember the last time i got capped, i think it was on vpslink or something many years ago

      @florin Yup, most of our customer does not even hit more than 50% of the allocated bandwidth. Some of our clients buy to serve their nameserver mostly.

    Damn, even though my ISP’s parent company is listed in the peer list (Optus owned by SingTel), I still get pings of 400-500 ms to them on a residential line.

      While it is owned by them they both run fully independent global networks which are not merged, main peering point between them is LAX.

    I’m in south China and my ping to the test address about is roughly 180-190ms. To OAH, it’s 50-60ms. 180 is what I get to my Los Angeles vps. I’ll stick with OAH.

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.
