  • 512MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 150GB/month data transfer
  • 1x IPv4 + 5x IPv6
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

PayPal or credit cards are accepted. Servers in Dallas TX with SoftLayer (test IP: 74.86.173.2). FuseVPS is a new brand established in January this year, and is by part of the web dev/web solution team running FinerHosting (since 2004). They also have an SLA guaranteeing the uptime. From ToS

If we do suffer any network downtime, customers will be reimbursed 10% of their monthly hosting bill per every hour of downtime.

While there’s no burstable memory included + only 150GB/month of data, the pricing looks “sane” — some might argue “expensive” and used ClubUptime as comparison, but we know what happened to that company.

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.

  2. Nice inclusion in the terms of service. 10 hours downtime == free month?

      Actually 11 hours, since they charge 5% as a handling charge for dealing with the credit via a support ticket. Subject to the terms of their SLA, which I cant see linked anywhere obvious on their website, and neither can Google.

      Either way Im sure it’ll exclude most causes of downtime, if it doesnt then that’d be a sign to run away ;)

          Surely that’s criminal?

        • You can’t charge for paypal fees, period.

          Paypal will bust your balls if you do that.

          They should get 30+ days to refund a single payment, meaning they can simply view your latest payment (assuming monthly) and refund whatever part of it without any fees.

        • You can charge a fee very easily. Your pricing is cash pricing, and all other payments are assessed a fee of X to convert it to a cash equivalent.

  3. @Yomero most companies probably just include it in the normal price, maybe just charge a bit more or make a slightly less profit margin to live with it.

    • My accountants tell me that’s illegal here in the US although looking at all those extra taxes on cigarettes and booze, I have to wonder if it does happen.

      Not that I buy those two things of course….

    • Yes, I guess they consider it in the total price, but some companies write explicitly that will refund discounting a “transaction cost” or something like that.

    • They’ve already told you ‘no’…

      …and you’ve going to wait an additional week?

      Maybe going ahead and filing the complaint with Paypal or your bank now would be a good idea?
