FlipHost – $4/month 1GB and $7/month 2GB SSD KVM VPS in Los Angeles

Tags: , , , Date/Time: February 3, 2014 @ 12:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

fliphostAlex from US-based Fliphost sent in an offer for some of his SSD KVM based packages in Los Angeles, California!

SSD LEB2

  • 4 vCPU Cores
  • 1GB RAM
  • 7GB SSD disk space
  • 800GB bandwidth
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4 address
  • KVM / SolusVM
  • $4/Month
  • Order here
SSD LEB3

  • 4 vCPU Cores
  • 2GB RAM
  • 12GB SSD disk space
  • 1TB bandwidth
  • 1Gbps uplink
  • 1x IPv4 address
  • KVM / SolusVM
  • $7/Month
  • Order here

Note: All prices are prorated, so the checkout price may appear less than the recurring amount. Also once stock is sold out the promotion will end.

We’ve all seen the abundant 2GB RAM OpenVZ offers, but rarely do we see a KVM equivalent which Fliphost are providing today. Fliphost were founded in June 2011 and have since been purchased by Query Foundry. They do run as an independent brand, though. They have featured back in May 2013 with a 1TB storage plan, so they’re not new to ‘going overboard’ with resources. They have also had a popular dedicated server offer a while back. Alex informs us that the servers they run are Dual E5-26XX’s with 128GB RAM and 8x Intel 520 SSDs in hardware RAID10 with the LSI 9266/9271 card. It is also worth noting that these KVM special plans can be ordered yearly for the price of 10 months, if you submit a ticket for it.

Fliphost have thrown in a few ‘bonus’ services such as their self restore backup system (OpenVZ only at the moment), free Rage4 Anycast DNS and Offloaded SQL (available with a ticket). It does seem IPv6 is lacking at the moment however. Payments are made through PayPal and refunds are processed on a case by case basis. Prohibited activities are simply anything illegal in the US, as well as Tor exit nodes and anything that can affect the performance of your neighbours on the node. As always do read the ToS before purchasing.

Network Information:

Los Angeles, CA (QuadraNET)
Test IPv4: 198.46.138.122

  2. In case anyone was wondering, yes, it is Quadranet via ColoCrossing.

    • That is correct. Our LA KVM offering is currently Quadranet via Colocrossing. Once we finish up our owned setup in our Dallas location we will shift our eyes to the LA location and migrate them our own network and hardware in LA.

    One question: are you reselling the VPS or you are not direct customer or Datacenter; what I can see is New Wave NetConnect the owner of the IP’s for your VPS, after searching for reviews about this company I have got many of them are bad! Just asking because I am interested to buy 2!

    February 5, 2014 @ 3:41 am | Reply
    • We are not a reseller. Colocrossing is the owner of the IPs. We are a customer of NWN who is with colocrossing.

      We fully own our hardware and network in Dallas TX and once we complete our setup in Dallas we will be doing the same in LA.

    Server provisioned and ready-to-use within 1 minute of payment.

    *Very* fast read/write and network speeds.

    My VPS is running Ubuntu, PHP, MySQL, PHPmyAdmin, Apache, Perl, Webmin and custom PHP systems with no problems or stress.

    The speeds are incredibly good, almost unbelievable, from here in Australia.

    Very happy.

    I booked a VPS after seeing this offer. I was able to install a custom ISO(Slackware) within minutes after opening a ticket.

    Great service, great speed. I would recommend this.

    I am not able to login via ssh. Connection is refused. What might be the reason? I tried with the root password set at first, for the first two times, the same credentials didn’t work. Now it doesn’t connect.

        in a few years maybe?

        February 9, 2014 @ 11:24 am | Reply
        • Maybe. However despite disk sizes increasing, like 4TB or 6TB HDD, there’s increased cost in keeping the integrity of the data. It’s getting to a point where prices won’t drop for a while but increase until certain hurdles are worked out.

    I’m using the $7 2GB one, and no problems really other than random network lags for a few minutes (only once or twice a week, three times tops). Other than that, its great. IO is fantastic and the processor is decent as well.

    Using SSD LEB2, happy, glad to hear that you escalated the networking issue, the speeds are fine but I do get a substantial latency jump at a certain point.

    Will recommend :)

    • Thanks for the feedback. We’ll see what we can do about the latency and network issue. It’s been a major pain point for us.

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.
