FuseVPS – $5.95 512MB OpenVZ VPS in Dallas

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 10, 2011 @ 1:30 pm, by LowEndAdmin

FuseVPS Tommy from FuseVPS has been emailing me some special promo codes over the last month. So here you are — dblbw-lowend to get double the bandwidth (you probably need it as their plans do come with small amount of monthly data), or lowend60 to get 60% off first month (non-recurring, so normal price from 2nd month onwards). Their plan pricing has remained the same since last time we featured them. $5.95/month gets you the following VPS in Softlayer Dallas:

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

Direct sign up link. Test IP: 74.86.173.2 in Softlayer Dallas. Tommy has a quick briefing of their background here, although FuseVPS itself is only recently founded this year. One favorable review in WHT.

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. First. :P

    The review is interesting and looks valid. The poster is a long time user of WHT and in fact one of their community guides.

    Can’t believe I just said something nice about a WHT admin type.

      So what? WHT status makes it automatically viable ?

      But it looks ok.

      they do look having solid service from what others mentioned here, maybe budget but in that category, might be good to run an application that demands resources, not only file hosting.

    I’m using 1G Ram with 20G HD from Club Uptime which is using Softlayer for $2.98/m,
    and the server never goes down and fast.

    Why would anybody interested in this, paying double for less spec?

      One reason might be more user friendly TOS, as example:

      IRC: FuseVPS prohibits the hosting of IRC without permission from the administrator of the
      network. To gain permission please email support@FuseVPS.com– Please note we are under
      no obligation to allow you IRC related processes, scripts or SSH access.

      coupon / code you could share (please)?

    Order one and it’s kind of a low quality box: Xeon 5148. :\

    This vendor has provided excellent technical service. Auto-provisioning was immediate, and the most complete we have experienced from any vendor. All the details had been attended to in the auto-provision.

    The owner/operator had an overreaction to an erroneous spam report, leading to a suspension of service and some strong language. This occurred early and did not impact bringing the server into service. The operator recovered quickly, apologized, and has been very professional since.

    Both IPv4 and IPv6 work well. Softlayer.

    We highly recommend this vendor.
