LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

GigeVPS – $4.17 384MB OpenVZ VPS in US/UK

Tags: , , , Date/Time: January 8, 2011 @ 1:20 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated June 2011 — GigeVPS, after being acquired by ThrustVPS in March, is now redirecting to Thrust’s main site. Company in dead pool.

GigeVPS Rus emailed me about GigeVPS‘s 30% off recurring discount for the new year. Use promo code JANSALE to get the discount, and their “Bronze” package is now $4.17/month.

  • 384MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer on 1Gbps
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

You can order in either US location which is HostDime in Orlando FL, or UK location which is Rapidswitch. Rus also said that they are launching new service in LA next week. Not sure where they will be hosting with in LA — could be Telecom Center as it’s what Thrust::VPS is using. You can also get their 512MB package “Silver” for $6.97/month.

GigeVPS is now owned by NetIntelligence who also owns ThrustVPS and Rapidswitch.

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.

    Not having the best of experience with them. Signed up over a month ago. When the monthly renewal notice came in the email paid using Google checkout only for the account to be suspended a day later. Emailed them and got the reply saying that they have an error with Google checkout.

    That was a week ago. Today tried logging in and and my username does not exist.

    All data gone and no access to server… hope I can get a refund.

    Yep, they (only Rus I guess) do not answer tickets for last 2-3 days.
    And I sometimes feel like support (Rus) is not really reading them, I get answers to different question than asked. Totally ignored.

    Gonna leave them and I would suggest that do NOT buy anything from them*

    I ordered a VPS and everything seemed to go smoothly except one MAJOR flaw.
    I installed (insert software here) and guess what?
    It ran just fine for the first day.
    Every day I get monitoring emails that the server goes offline and is unreachable.
    I check and its there, but root pass isn’t mine. Reinstall via CP is the only way to get back in.
    Changing root pass via CP does nothing.

    So daily at 10am CST my VPS gets wiped.
    Support has yet to reply. :(

      Apparently, somehow… the network connection via/thru the container host is somehow being disrupted. I was able to gain access via Solus, and checked everything. Nothing was out of line. After pulling my hair out for a while, Shutdown/Boot via the CP. Console reboot didn’t do it. After a container reboot, connectivity was back. Very strange, but now we’ll see if they can find out why from their end.

      FYI, I’ve only had this one for a few days. My others for a while. So at least I’m not heavily dependent on it yet. But it has me shopping US West hosts again.
