    • Does it? Compared to offers seen over this month, and last, it seems a very poor offering for the price. For $6.5, one can get just about anything from LEB. 18GB space,256 MB RAM and 300GB bandwidth may be ok for a couple of dollars. For $6.5, one expects much more.

      • One thing to bare in mind is we are using Xen and the location of these are the UK, both adds value, the majority of posts on LEB are OpenVZ and USA, hence a lower price can be offered.

        We are planning some great promo’s for our birthday, which we hoped LEB would feature but it has taken months to get this on, so it is unlikely, but stay focused on our website on 7th April (our 6th Birthday!) for some awesome discounts.

      • I said it was a solid offer because at this price for those resources, you can be fairly confident you will get what you are paying for.

        • Joel,

          As the old saying goes “Pay peanuts, get monkeys”. Dan has already stated why the price is higher than most of the offers on here. They have been in business a few years and running a successful company is not cheap :-)

        • Liam,

          By the looks of recent LEB offers, these super charged monkeys seem to work very well. ;)

        • Exactly, there are lot of providers here who deny themselves a margin in order to compete against providers they just cannot compete with on price. It’s simple maths to work out that a fair few offers posted here are just too good to be true.

          Make a sustainable margin and plan to stay in business.

        • Joel,

          It remains to be seen who will still be here in a few months though. GBServers on the other hand aren’t going anywhere. Anyway, I don’t want to interfere to much. As with all our offers, if you don’t like them, you don’t have to sign up :-)

    Hi, do you get an additional IPv4 address for free? From your website: for second free IP and any additional IP’s

    • Hi John,

      We only provide one free IP address, all additional IP addresses are charged at £0.50 per month each.

      May I ask where on our website you found that quote? I am unable to locate this myself, but will ensure that we correct that.
