LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

GigaTux – £47.94/Year 128MB Xen VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 25, 2010 @ 12:52 am, by LowEndAdmin

Gigatux Marc from UK hosting company/Linux specialists, GigaTux, emailed me about their latest insane offer on WHT. With promo code INSANE you can get 50% off life time discount, and when you pay yearly for their Uno L package it comes down to £47.94/Year, and you get

  • 128MB memory/128MB swap
  • 10GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • Xen

UK data center in “secured location near London”. Slightly more expensive that our last exclusive offer although the storage space has doubled since then. These guys have been around since 2007, and whoever uses ns[1-3].acornusers.org deserve a special mention on LowEndBox.com (although I’ve never owned an Acorn computer :)

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.

  3. I used a GigaTux VPS a little while ago and didn’t have any problems. I especially liked all of the Turnkey Linux images they supply – good for just “messing about”.

  4. There’s a note on their site about double hard drive space until the end of August, 2010:

    Looks like you need a code though so it;s a trade off which ever one you want.

  6. Certainly sounds like people either love or hate the design. Either way, we hoped to be a bit different!

    @drmike Yup, you need to choose one of those offers – can’t have both I’m afraid!

  7. Oh, and yes, we haven’t gotten round to shifting to our own nameservers ns[1-3].gigatux.com quite yet! I haven’t used my Acorn for a while, but boy was it ahead of its time back in the day.

    I’ve used GigaTux VPS’s and found the service to be really good value for money. You get exactly what is advertised and what you pay for. The servers are maintained well and replies are always polite and quick. Had a good experience overall.
