LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Fresh Out of the Gate: Central Servers Debuts with $3.99/mo VPS in Kansas City, USA!

Tags: , Date/Time: January 16, 2021 @ 12:00 am, by raindog308

Central Servers is a new hosting company and James recently contacted us to get their first offer posted on LEB.

And when I saw new, I mean brand new.  But they’ve ticked off all the essentials: they’re registered in Florida (as SunBiz, L18000272503 FEI/EIN Number83-265590), running a proper datacenter (UnrealServers in Kansas City, USA), and have a special offer for LEB readers!  OK, I suppose that last one isn’t completely essential for business success but I highly recommend it to all providers.

Their VPS line ranges from 2GB up to 10GB but you can get started with 1GB for $3.99/mo!

They accept Paypal and Coinbase Commerce (which is BTC, LTC, ETH, USDT, XLM, etc.)  Be sure to review their terms of service.

I view our role here at LowEndBox as (to paraphrase the ABC Sports announcer) “spanning to globe to bring you constant variety in hosting!”  Part of that is featuring new and upcoming hosts.  Central Servers is unproven here so if you decide you want to give them a spin, please make sure to share your experience in the comments below!

  1. Hi there,
    I am James from CentralServers. We are glad to finally go live on LEB after many months of hard work readying our backend and hardware!
    We are glad to start this new journey with all of you and share our skills that we have accumulated from over 16 years of private web hosting!

    Invalid order link,invalid test IP,invalid test file link.

    This business is not very reassuring.

    Not to be negative but it’s 2021 and most providers moving to NVMe SSDs in their compute plans, one would expect to be leading with that. Not HDD or SSD-cached HDD.

      I believe, based on the description of the host (if you read that), that what you’re getting is a 10GB slice of the host’s NVMe SSD.

    • Hi Kassem,
      Well this is LEB. We do have NVMe drives, but we definitely cannot afford to give them away here. We aren’t a billion dollar host with tons of venture capital to throw away. We are funding this ourselves with revenue from our other business that we host in other locations. Literally everything here is out of pocket on our behalf.

    • Also to make a second comment;
      Most hosts are not providing 2020 or 2021 hardware especially on this site. We are offering a EPYC Zen2 based system with DEDICATED resources (core/thread) and 8 channel DDR4 ECC memory. Most hosts are providing slices of older intel CPU’s from the haswell era at the latest.
      The IPC & effective clockspeeds we are providing as well as the memory bandwidth is over and above what is provided by most hosts. In fact this is our business model; to provide good dedicated CPU resources for our clients to run real tasks. Even the datacenter we are in is not some bottom end oversold DC where you get bottom dollar speeds.

      The hard drives is the only way we could afford to offer anything on this site.
      We are striving to offer excellent performance (similar to entry level dedicated servers) at a very affordable price!

      Thanks,
      James

        Too bad AMD is worthless so an affordable price and AMD are oxymoronic. Pay less for bad chips instead of paying for something that works? Interesting take.

        Even those older Intel processors can still outperform these newer EPYC in cases, dubios claim at best.

        • What older Intel CPU’s can outperform EPYC Zen2 chips? These are not Low clocked Zen1. We are talking about 3.35Ghz Zen2….

          We validated our performance and a reasonably specced VPS on our platform can beat an entire 8c Xeon system from the Ivy Bridge years.
          The single core performance is similar to that of a 3.9Ghz Xeon v3 CPU similar to a 1241v3 or another Haswell generation higher clocked Xeon. 8c Xeons from that generation have overall worse performance per core.

          We are offering DEDICATED Core/Thread which means our effective clockspeed (not including IPC) is upto 10x that of lower class oversold providers.

          I am sorry that you guys think our offerings are so terrible, you are free to scroll on and go purchase from some other oversold vendor.

          Good luck!

            Do I see some vendor bias here?

            I would be curious to see these performance validations you made, please show us all!

            Thank you for agreeing that an old v3 Intel has the same performance as a brand new EPYC, which was exactly my point.

            Where did anyone say your offering was terrible? Dubios =\= terrible. I’m just interested on what seems to be a very warped perception. Your attempts to make me scroll on reek of insecurity and make it look like you don’t even want any customers.

            • Mike,
              Intel has just failed the market in the past years. We setup our company to deliver SUPERIOR performance to what Intel machines can deliver. It is just that simple.
              Single core performance on an older higher clocked Intel can rival that of a newer lower clocked AMD. However they cannot compete in memory bandwidth or cores. So instead of you having 1/8th of that core you can have 1 core or 1/2 that core. Meaning you get alot more performance in the same price tier because of advances in Technology.

              There are many companies that offer 50+ VPS on a single quad core Xeon box…. I will leave you to figure out how much CPU time you could actually get… never mind memory or disk throughput.

              We are not looking for people with no intention to purchase who instead wish to trash talk our platform. We have many years of hosting experience for our other companies and understand just how much performance can be extracted out of various platforms (both Intel & AMD). We chose to go with this platform for a reason.

              Just rushing to the bottom in selling cheap oversold quad core Xeon’s is not what we were interested in. This is why we acquired the systems that we did in order to start this company.

              Since you are clearly not interested in our offerings; I think it would be better if you looked elsewhere instead of stirring up trouble. We didn’t come all this way for trouble; we built a platform to compete with some of the biggest vendors by offering compute performance that others simply do not offer for any reasonable price.
