LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

G&Z Host – $2.95 Xen VPS with 64MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 10, 2010 @ 1:49 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated July 2011 — Looks like domain has expired back in June, and I wonder whether there was any service for the first half of the year. Anyway, another failed provider.

G&Z Host Erick from G&Z Host sent me their latest low end exclusive offer to LowEndBox readers. Yes it is another sub-$3 VPS. For $2.95/month with this ordering link here (warning: self-signed SSL certificate). You get

  • 64MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Dallas data center. Also read my previous blog post about this company.

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.

    That’s not self-signed lol. That’s signed by StartSSL Class 1 (NOTE: FREE SSL Certs). Most browsers accept the CA but some old browsers (ie. IE w/o CA ROOT Cert Upgrade in Windows Upgrade) and Opera do not accept that as CA.

    Anyway, their server gnzhost.com is using DA as control panel, which has “Damn::VPS” on its license.

    Unless I’m blind… it is “self-signed” SSL. Did you look at the SSL cert details? I checked with Chrome and IE… it’s “localhost”.

    Yep, Iceweasel says it’s a StartSSL Class 1 cert, issued in July. And hey look, five nameservers, yay G&Z.

  7. Nice to see more Xen servers, than the typical OpenVZ that every other host offers.

    Tested with Firefox and shows as StartSSL: http://i38.tinypic.com/2v34snr.png
    Could DNS be pointing at a different servers with different certs? IP is 66.154.118.155 here.

  12. I am actually getting it signed to localhost when I made the post. Maybe the certificate has changed?

    Well. Either way, it means that G&Z didn’t feel like forking over the money for a *real* certificate (though with how lenient the certification checks are with most SSL providers, a standard paid certificate is only nominally better IMO than a free/self-signed one).

  14. Hello, i can see many complaints about SSL cert.

    First of all we’re using StartSSL Class 1 as some people have seen it.

    Second, some browser had problems to authenticate our cert. but that is now corrected, please accept our apologize.

    We are going to implement a new certificate as soon as possible for us.
