LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Forever Hosting – $6.30 786MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: October 13, 2010 @ 11:36 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated February 2012: Forever Hosting is unfortunately, not forever. It died somewhere in 2011, and it’s homepage has been showing cPanel login page for a while.

FeHosting Via this WHT offer. I think Forever Hosting has fixed quite a few confusion on their website and WHMCS since their last offer, but I am still weary this relative new starter from Canada offering way too much for their cheap VPS promotion. Use the same promo code 10OFF to get 10% off recurring discount on their “Budget VPS #1” — which comes down to $6.30/month (sign up link here).

  • 786MB guaranteed memory (yes, a weird figure)
  • 20GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are now available in Scranton PA, Tampa FL, and UK — although their website remains with HostDime in Orlando FL. From the WHT post you can also request free DirectAdmin license:

If you would like the FREE copy of Directadmin you will need to add it to the order note’s and post the URL to this Ad (note: the WHT link above)!

And free Softaculous license?

Buy any VPS with control panel (cPanel or DirectAdmin) and we will give you a Softaculous license for Free.

It did not state that you need to buy the control panel, but rather buy any VPS with control panel (which DA comes for free) — thus also qualifies the $6.30/month VPS for free Softaculous? Not that I use any control panel so those would be no use for me, but in theory they might need to honour DA + Softaculous from their ad write-up.

Domain registered in August. Adjacent NS, and ikr pointed out this WHT discussion from our previous post — seems to be a hosting business with a stormy start.

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. it seems the Softaculous is included with the DA. however, I’m waiting 5 days already to “fix the issue with licensing” as it shows up as Free (a.k.a. only for one domains) instead of Premium version. Every day I am given some excuse and so far it looks like they are waiting for the 15 days to end, when I won’t be able to claim my money back anymore.

    fixing a license issue takes couple hours max, not days. I have few more vpss with Softaculous, and I know how fast their support is

      Hi Flap Jack,

      Yes we had a issue with the Softaculous on your IP. We fixed the issue today and have had no reply. So i guess it works? The delay was that Softaculous was thinking we are adding all these to full dedicated servers and not vps servers. We had to show them that these are vps servers and they only reply to me one time aday about the issue. We are looking for a new way of getting our licenses. If you have any questions about our servers or our company you can email me at michael@fehosting.com or send it to sales@fehosting.com I am more then happy to work with you.

      Have a great day!

        fair enough Michael, it works now. You must agree however that was very unusual for something like this to take 5 days to resolve?
        I must say that apart from this little hiccup I can’t say anything wrong about the service.

          Hey,

          and I agree with you. But I did my best to get it to work and was on it everytime they reply to me I would reply within a few minute’s even if it was at 3AM :-) I didn’t know what else to try but to nag them to get it done…

          Thanks for the feedback!

          Have a great Night!

      Hi,

      And why is that? We took out a owner that was not thinking the same plan as Colin and I? All he could think about was money that is not what we are about yes you would need to make money on any company but you need to think about the customer’s before you think about money or anything like that. We try to make every one of our client’s happy and so far we are doing a good job. If you would like to know more about us just email us or get one of us on Live Chat :-)

      Have a great day!

    I signed up for FE toward the end of last month, and have to say that I am surprisingly happy with it. I got the free DirectAdmin, and it works for my 10-ish domains, so I guess it is okay.

    They activated my account over 16-20 hours on the weekend, and I haven’t done a lot beyond setting up a few blog DBs and migrating my main static site. The performance so far is good; occasionally at the beginning there were some I/O hiccups on the console but I haven’t seen it in web serving or my small databases. CPU speed is great, and for the money there is plenty of RAM and disk space; working on filling mine before you lot get in and throughput has been consistent. :) No downtime so far.

    Overall I’m happy enough, and intend to finish up and point all my DNS to the sites on this server, and kill off another very low end account. I will definitely rsync frequently with my local server in case they go belly-up, but it seems to be cost-effective so far.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks for the kind feedback good or bad… Yes it took that much time to get the account setup due to DA.. -Server’s are setup within 1-15 minutes. However due to DA licensing which has to be done manually it can take up to 12-24 hours for the control panel to actually be installed. After we get the License we install it and that only take us about 30 minute’s. You are safe with us we will take care of you:-)

      Have a great day Tim!

        Actually I meant the time as a compliment, I wasn’t really expecting any traction until Monday – I don’t work on the weekend and so I was pleasantly surprised you all did, and for as little as you are making off me at that. I was with my last host for several years after they ran out of DC space for new VMs, and I hope you guys are around that long – moving is not a process I like to do. I just feel the need to plan for it in this era of low margins. :)

        Best luck to you all, so far I’m a satisfied customer. Sorry to read about the early breakup.

        -Tim

  6. Looks like some of their staff has been suspended from WHT.

    I’d give a link but looks like WHT’s public profiles aren’t public and in fact require a sign on.

        Hi Jordan,

        WHT does ban for no reason I seen many users get banned for no reason’s I know all She did was post a ad and it did not meet the rule’s they have set. We are also going to upgrade that WHT account as soon as they unban it. If you don’t want to sign up due to that then that is up to you. We have happy users and we do our best to keep them that way. If you would like to talk more email me at michael@fehosting.com or sales@fehosting.com

        Thank you.

      • WHT bans for any reason. I was banned for complaining about a 23% uptime from one of their advertisers. Was actually polite, provided docs and references. Still happened and they refused to discuss it.

        • Big -1 for that. Shouldn’t get in your way for your clients. Or possible clients watching this thread.

          I see the WHT thread fine though.

    A few days ago I went back on the market for a low end VPS. My Current provider had let me down quite a bit with downtime and going away when I came to the page so I could not talk in live chat. 9 Hours of downtime in one day. I was done and started looking. I found FEHosting.com Here at LowendBox.com, I was a little worried because of the ownership thing over at WHT but the prices were right and I tried them out. I am happy I did Because Micheal has been there every step of the way. I’ve prob opened enough tickets he knows my information by heart. It took some time for my VPS to be set up because the DC I chose was out of IPs, But I chose a different DC and a few mins later I was up and running. THis is my third day and everything seems to be running good. Because of my last vps Provider I was very picky and Micheal still walked me through everything.
    I am not very knowledgeable about VPSs or how to install things via SSH but I just opened a ticket and it was installed for me since I purchased the Budget VPS that is semi managed.

    I would recommend them to someone else anytime

    I bought a VPS at fehosting for about a half month ago. And so far I am satisfied with their services. I got for 8 bucks/month 50 GB space, 300 GB bandwith and 1 gb guaranteed/1,5 GB burst ram, 3 IP addresses, DirectAdmin licenc, Softacolous licence and a server located in the EU, which is really important for me. My VPS is pretty fast. Their support is just great they answer the tickets in minutes and provide helpful answers. I hope they will provide the same service level after month or years too.
