FtpIt are a relatively new hosting provider who began operating in January 2013. Radoslav claims they’re “experts when it comes to servers and hosting” as he has had many satisfied private hosting customers in the last two years. Each of their servers are powered by an Intel Xeon E3-1240v2 CPU, 32GB Ram and 4×1 TB SATA Hard Drives with LSI Hardware RAID10. Nodes are connected to a 1Gbps port but client’s VPS will be limited to 100Mbps. FtpIT are fairly active on LowEndTalk. If you become a customer, do leave a review below.

For now the only payment method which is being accepted is PayPal. Although Payza and BitPay will be added soon. Due to manual verification, it may take up-to 12 hours to activate your account. Additional IPv4 addresses can be purchased for $2 each per month. Other addons are available during checkout. Spamming of any kind is strictly prohibited. For more information, take a look at their Terms of Service and Acceptable Usage Policy.

  2. You can assume whatever you want. We have successfully operated last six months and going strong still…..
    We’re here to stay. We have started long before summer and will keep operating after summer as well. :)

    It annoys me at how quick people are to assume that new hosts are “summer hosts”. Folks, if we don’t give people the chance, we’ll never know how good they can actually be. They may just turn out to be the most reliable host we’ve ever been with, in the end.

    I’d try these guys out for myself but I’m not looking for another ColoCrossing VPS in Buffalo at the moment.

    Looks good, just placed an order.

    The registration form kept telling my phone number is invalid, but then I figured I should remove + sign from the beginning (+370XXXXXXXX), so heads up to other Europeans who may find this confusing.

  8. trash server, ssh access does not work, centos is beyond hopeless as it doesn’t resolve so i installed ubuntu and there is the same issue, the server is a hopeless pile of shit and i think the server should be put back into the new york sewer it came from

    • Centos is not beyond hopeless, it is minimal version. All Ubuntu are working as far I know. Server is working and up. Can I have your ticket ID? LEB is not our support desk. For any issues, if you are a real customer please open a ticket.

    @Sahil Y
    posting this just to inform that i successfully activated the $4 VPS 3 days ago and so far i have absolutely nothing to complain about. the available settings is also great for the price paid, compared to other places where they pretty much rape your pocket for similar or worse services.

    i was gonna buy my 2nd one for $4 but its out of stock… any chance more will be available?

    Just wanted to to post a quick update. My VPS is up for 23 days, haven’t encountered any problems! I have a large database on this VPS and query speed is really good, especially considering the price.

    Keep up the good work guys!

  23. I’ve been using this exact server for almost 6 months, and I’m more than happy. I’m using it for a lot, and it works great. 0% downtime, and support is very helpful, understanding, and pretty damn fast. Thanks guys :D

  24. Wow. My VPS was activated *immediately*. Upload/download is insanely fast. WHM is showing an average server load of around 0.04. My package includes 4 cores, 3 GB of RAM, 50 GB of space, 2 TB of bandwidth. So far, so amazing. I switched from another host and I’m already so happy I did. I’ve sent in two support tickets, and both were answered much, much faster than my old host and they were resolved quickly. I’m thoroughly impressed with ftpit!

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.
