FtpIt are a very new company. They started operating in January 2013 and have been featured once before. Their last, and first, offer on LowEndBox sold out very quickly.

Each of their servers are powered by the Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 CPU, 32GB Ram and 4 x 1TB SATA Hard Drives with LSI Hardware RAID10. They’re using a 120 GB Intel 520 Series SSD for cacheing. If you signed up previously, or proceed to signup, please leave us a review below.

    A simple question, not only for you, but you may help :-)
    A little traceroute from Thailand:

    It seems that “tinet.net” adds ~=60ms.
    Any idea why? Or how to avoid it?

    • Thanks for great reposnse so far. Because of this, we are currently out of stock, so we are now taking pre-orders which will be delivered in a few days.

    “FtpIt are a very new company. They started operating in January 2013 and have been featured once before.”


    We will not list VPS offers that only have yearly billing option, if the provider is under 1 year old.

    They are 8 months old.

    • But they also have a monthly option. So it’s not the only billing option.

      Nonetheless, thanks Paul for being vigilant!

    I’m not sure I’d want to trust my data to a provider that makes forum threads bashing reputable companies without justification. Makes me wonder about their ethics.

    • Hi there. That is my view as a customer. Again in my signature in LowEndTalk, it is clearly written “All my views here are my own. They do not represent FtpIt’s views unless otherwise stated”.

  7. We have stock available again. Please hurry before it ends, if you are interested.

    Great offers – will be taking up the 3GB. Just wondering is the 3GB plan 3072MB of RAM or 3096MB? Just wondering what the extra 24 Mb is for?

    September 7, 2013 @ 2:05 am | Reply
    • Count it as 3 GB, equals to 3072. If you however want the extra +24, send a ticket, after ordering. :)

    Hi do you offer ddos protection?

    Also any chance to get a 1gbit port upgrade? I am thinking about purchasing 1 year

    September 9, 2013 @ 12:04 am | Reply
    • We do not offer DDOS protection, however the 1 Gigabit port upgrade is possible. Just send us a ticket.

  10. Nice offer for openvz. Shared resources vs dedicated kvm. performance and security is the difference =D

    • perennate:

      KVM has shared resources too. If you don’t have an encrypted hard drive, which you should unless you’re doing disk-intensive tasks because it’s pointless not to (like having non-HTTPS website, who does that?), then KVM is just as open as OpenVZ.

  11. Good article to read https://enterprisevpssolutions.com/evdsportal/index.php/knowledgebase/article/183/openvz-vs-kvm-see-the-difference/

    Both OpenVZ and KVM are mature technologies with advantages and disadvantages to each. Selecting the appropriate technology at the outset may save you significant future headache. To that end, please review the following list to see where you may fall.


    Only intend to run userspace applications in linux for example LAMP/LNMP stack web hosting
    Typically better performance per dollar with a smaller disk and memory footprint for equivalent solutions.
    Lower management complexity for VPS users

    Intend to run Windows Server or OS other than linux.
    Solution requires custom kernel modifications, patches, specific kernel version or obscure features that are not supported in OpenVZ
    Needs advanced netfilter firewall configuration (exceptionally so, as most iptables features are supported) for example ipset or nfnetlink.
    SELinux. Within the VPS only, it does not prevent inspection from the parent hardware node.
    Neither (need a dedicated server):

    Full disk encryption/LUKS. Not possible in OVZ, KVMs can inspect your memory and grab your keys.
    Specific hardware, for example a gpu for bitcoin mining
    Heavy IO loads for extended periods of time.
    Things known not to work on OpenVZ:

    netfilter’s ipset
    netfilter’s nfnetlink
    netfilter’s ip_conntrack_pptp
    cachefs (potentially in post-2.6.19 kernels?)
    cifs filesystem
    file acls (setfacl/getfacl)
    loopback mount (mount -o loop)

    Again there is a market for both technologies wish you the best.
