LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

FitVPS – $10/Quarter 128MB OpenVZ IPv6-Only VPS in Bulgaria

Tags: , , , Date/Time: May 6, 2011 @ 6:18 am, by LowEndAdmin

FitVPS IPv4 addresses have become one of the raising cost for low end VPS providers. ValueServer in Germany had trialled free servers with IPv6-only connectivity, and FitVPS in Bulgaria is now also offering special discounts to LowEndBox readers on VPS with only IPv6. Rumen sent me this offer on their “mini ipv6-only” package that is $10/Quarter (sign up link here). Uuse the promo code LEB-go-ipv6 will give you a once off discount so the first 3 months only cost $1. It has

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer on 10Mbps
  • 0 IPv4 + 5x IPv6 addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

After signing up, you can also choose one of the following upgrades for free. Just submit the code as support ticket after signing up.

  • LEB: doubledisk – double the disk space (to 10GB), for life
  • LEB: doublebandwidth – double the data transfer (to 200GB/month), for life
  • LEB: speedmeup – will upgrade the bandwidth/port speed to 100Mbps

If you need IPv4, their previous offer is still valid, which now also comes with 5x IPv6 addresses (after submitting a request). FitVPS is owned by Telecoms.bg, a local ISP owning all their data center and equipments. They have been around as an ISP since 1998 but has only recently started selling VPS in FitVPS brand since Feb 2011.

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.

    It is not that we don’t have IPv4 addresses, we have plenty of them (and we are LIR). We did this special first to prove that it can work (a VPS/server with only IPv6 connectivity) and second to help people get the he.net’s IPv6 certifications.

    I thought SolusVM requires 1 IPv4 per VM at least.

    • rds100:

      Indeed it does, we had to do some custom scripting to overcome this problem with SolusVM.
      We also had to implement our own IPv6 rDNS in SolusVM, since solus is broken in this regard.

      Why not fetch it to your machine, then ‘scp’ it from there to the VPS.

    Kudos on trying this out, although I’d expect the price to be quite a bit lower than $3.33/month. for these specs and no IPv4.

    • As rds100 has said, the main purpose of posting here is using that $1/3 months deal so people can practise IPv6 and get HE.net certification.

      • Since we are on this topic here…does anyone know how to build a IPV6 mail server (or is there one that I can sign up?), I got stuck at that one.

        Thanks!

          dpkg-reconfigure postfix (and tell it to use IPv6)

          This is of course for debian and debian-derived distributions. If you are on a different distribution you will still have to do some research :)

        It is 1 USD for 3 months (with the promo code LEB-go-ipv6). After the first 3 months it becomes 10 USD per 3 months, but we don’t expect that many people will keep using it at that price ;-)

          Sure, go get that IPv6 Sage t-shirt now, and when you cancel the VPS after 3 months we will free the slot for someone else to learn :)

          I hope you come back with another offer which would be attractive even past the first 3 months :)
          I’d get one, but with this offer I am too lazy to set up and configure a VPS knowing I only have it for a short period.

          We thought about letting anyone who gets the IPv6 Sage cert to keep it at the $1/quarter price, but the IPv6 Sage cert is too easy. Have to think about something more complicated. We are open to suggestions.
          And if you need a cheap offer for IPv6+IPv4 VPS just get the BuyVM 15/year – their IPv6 works, i have tried it myself.

          Why too easy? You mean not enough “complicated”? Everything what require anything else than taking care for own vps and paying invoices is enough complicated and time demanding that in most cases isn’t worth some buck saving.
          While I am not interested in your vps offer my opinion is that even coming there (to HE site), registering account and making few clicks require enough time and dedication for some dollar savings. Is it your purpose really to make IPv6 closer to people or only a bit self-promotion? Imho. is about to make people to do first steps into IPv6 not forcing them to become experts to save some dollar here and there, because this wont happens.
          If you want to introduce IPv6 to people and make them to do first steps, requesting from them to do sage cert to keep lover price previlege seems completely enough. Too easy? Too easy for what? Yeah, with Sage cert request there might be even someone who would actually take your offer.

          There are people who are genuinely interested in using and promoting IPv6, and they gladly will go to the HE website and pass that test. I think it was not the intention of rds100 to establish this as a barrier to entry, but just a way to see who among their clients is an IPv6 enthusiast and giving those people a ‘thumbs-up’ by granting them an inexpensive VPS.

          @rm, you missed my point. I will try shorter: Requesting Sage cert would be imho enough.
          Is now clear?

        • rds100:

          @Spirit,
          The $1 per 3 month price obviously cannot cover any expenses for providing the service. It can’t even pay for the electricity that your VPS will use. So we don’t want to keep that price forever and for unlimited users – yes it cost you some time and effort to get the IPv6 Sage cert, but it costs us real money to support the service, and we are not a charity. If you really want to use IPv6 long term – there are plenty of offers for VPSes that offer IPv6.

        • Spirit:

          My post isn’t against requesting Sage cert but expressed opinion about “making sage cert is too easy to meet our demands to promote IPv6”. Going there to learn about IPv6 and saving some buck – that’s great. Requesting anything more than that… too much.
          (that’s my opinion)

          Well for me that Sage test is too easy (too simple questions), it only took me 1-2 hours from getting the first test to getting the Sage (this with setting DNS, mail servers, and all needed). I think they should add more tests and more (higher) certs – it would be more fun this way :)

          My posts in this thread are strictly related to “We thought about letting anyone who gets the IPv6 Sage cert to keep it at the $1/quarter price, but the IPv6 Sage cert is too easy. Have to think about something more complicated. We are open to suggestions.”
          You wanted suggestions and I expressed my opinion – nothing more than that.

          Here is what the questions are like and the error I have got:

          Help Step Description Data
          * 1 If you need to edit off any subdomains to make it work, please do so here: domain.tld
          * 2 Check to see that the nameservers associated with subdomain.domain.tld have IPv6 AAAAs Success
          * 3 Check to see that the nameservers associated with subdomain.domain.tld are IPv6 accessible Couldn’t query name server

          I am using HE.Net’s free DNS and has set up an AAAA record for both my domain.tld and subdomain.domain.tld.

          So tell us what is your domain.tld so we can see what name servers you have pointed it to and see if they answer on ipv6?

          Guru
          Congratulations, you are an IPv6 Professional! To complete the Guru Test you will need:

          * The Name Servers for adm.zay.name need to have a AAAA records
          * Those Name Servers need to respond to queries made via IPv6

        • rds100:

          You either need to drop that adm.zay.name (as it is not a subdomain) and use just the “zay.name” domain to pass the test, or you need to properly delegate the adm.zay.name as a subdomain.

        • @rds100: here is the weird part, Step 1 is the only thing I can change on this whole test and I have already changed to zay.name, however for some reason, Q2 and Q3 are still pointing to adm.zay.name. So could you elaborate a little on how to set adm.zay.name to delegate as a subdomain? I am using HE.Net’s free DNS service. Thanks!

        • I think you can try that. Copy your entries to another NS, change them in your registrar and purge the zone in HE.net. Finally copy again the entries… :P (Just to prevent downtime :S )

        • Yeah I got stuck at pro level, switched to HE DNS, ended up registering a new domain in this process. went from pro back down to enthusist to reset dns settings in the test. Stuck on that level now because even though I can wget -6 vpsaddict.com/nvr7ij7cvf.txt
          for some reason the test cant.

        • TY TY TY for this VPS Offer, I didnt even know about the HR Sage certification before this. I learned a whole ton about IPv6 because of your offer and the certification process. Thanks again.

        • @Jonathan: As I have mentioned before, I was using He.Net’s DNS.
          Tae in HE.Net managed to explain to me what happened, basically their NS servers only updates once a day. However, he was able to kick off the update process for me, however the update process takes 1-2 hours, sometimes longer. So after waiting until 2am and still see nothing, I went to bed and this morning when I sat in front of my laptop again….WOHOOO, I am a sage too!!!

          Thanks to everyone’s help, especially rds100!

          It now seems to cost $1.20 per month, or $3.00 Quarterly — is this intentional?
          If so, let me applaud this change, it does make the plan attractive to permanently have, and not just first 3 months.

          Hi,
          Yes, this is intentional – this will be the new price. We still don’t expect that many people would order it, but that’s not the point of this ipv6-only plan anyway, it was mostly for demo. Still if someone knows what ipv6-only VPS means and wants it – he/she can have it.

      Normally this kind of thing should be done via ticket, but no problem, we have allowed your order to proceed (it seems maxmind doesn’t like your country).

  8. Is this native Ipv6 or tunneled?
    (in a traceroute I do see the “known” tunnel name that HE.NET uses)

    May 6, 2011 @ 1:00 pm | Reply
    • rds100:

      We have native with Level3 and a tunnel (with BGP) from he.net
      We prefer the Level3 native, however for things that are not visible through Level3 we route to he.net.
      Yes unfortunately this is the world of IPv6 – many providers don’t peer over IPv6 and have their own versions of “the IPv6 internet”

    So I finally decided to get one :P
    – instant setup, almost faster than the paypal email;
    – working rDNS in SolusVM;
    – 2.6.32 kernel;
    – fast disk I/O (116 MB/sec);
    – the only OS offered is Debian 6 (32-bit by default, 64-bit available), but that’s perfect for me (YMMV);
    – the template is also perfect and minimal, no extra crap installed, uses just 11 MB of RAM.
    Liking it very much so far!

    • rds100:

      One correction – the kernel is really 2.6.18, but the debian6 distribution scripts make it look like 2.6.32 because otherwise debian 6 would not work :)
      I am glad you are happy with the service.
      And we also offer debian6 because the repositories of most operating systems don’t work over ipv6. For the debian we are using our own mirror which we made available over ipv6.
