LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

FranTech – $5 Virtuozzo VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 23, 2008 @ 2:59 pm, by LowEndAdmin

FranTech.ca Via this WHT offer. FranTech might not even have its own website, but it has WHMCS and it’s selling VPS :) For $5/month, you get

  • 64MB memory
  • 2.5GB storage
  • 30GB monthly data transfer
  • CentOS/Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu

It uses Virtuozzo 4 so I assume it’s using SLM (which is much better than user bean counter). Severs are in Chicago at Steadfast Networks, hosted on dual quad core boxes. Another special feature is “shared MySQL” so you don’t even need to run your own MySQL server (which can be quite memory hungry sometimes).

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 appears that Frantech STILL DOES NOT HAVE ITS OWN WEBSITE in Jan 2010, and is currently down as reported on WHT. Will mark them as dead if it stays down for a week.
