GetMyVPS – $4.95 256MB Xen VPS in Kansas City

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 1, 2011 @ 2:36 am, by LowEndAdmin

Stewart from GetMyVPS sent me some once off discount coupons for their Xen HVM plans. Coupon code lebvps1 gets you 20% off first month only over their everyday price, which starts from $4.95/month for the “VPS-1” plan. You get

  • 256MB memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • 1x IPv4 + 10x IPv6
  • Xen HVM/SolusVM

Only PayPal is accepted. Coupon code is only available for the first 10 new customers, although there appears only 3 “VPS-1” slots available. Servers with Wholesale Internet in Kansas City MO (test IP: 69.30.209.10). Do note that from its ToS/AUP, IRC is not allowed and “links to unacceptable content” is also prohibited (be careful if you are hosting user-generated or scrapped content).

As of GetMyVPS, Stewart first started it a year ago, and pulled out on the same day the offer was posted. He relaunched it in June with little fanfare — actually no comment at all regarding his service. It’s based in Australia, part of AlfaHostsGroup, and could very well be just an after-class project of a few high school students..

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.

    Can I trust my data with high school students?

      • Loopinini:

        Legally you cannot enter binding contracts so what if you magically disappear one day? Sorry but I’ve been ripped off by kiddie hosts in the past.
