LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

G&Z Host - $6.95 256MB Xen VPS Exclusive Offer

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 More exclusive offers on the way! Erick from G&Z Host emailed me their promo code lowendbox, which gives you $4 recurring discount when you purchase their Xen – Hydrogen package, which brings the price down to $6.95/month. You get

  • 256MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

According to their network page, the servers are with Colo4Dallas in Texas, while their website is in Los Angeles. The test IP however gets around 60%+ packet loss when I tried to ping it — not too sure what’s going on there.

The “company” itself started in 2010 — in fact the domain was only registered last month, with WHOIS protection turned on. While there does not seem to be a way to know who are the people behind the company, I do trace it to an IP address in El Salvador.

  2. Joe Merit:

    looks like Quadranet’s Rack inside of Colo4dallas and
    not actually colo4dallas.

    Their network is kind of funky. I have a vps in softlayer dallas
    and the traceroute to 96.44.188.21 actually goes to chicago and then
    back to dallas :)

  3. I can’t copy and paste for some reason but I;m getting nearly the same results as Wing up there off of a Public wireless network.

  4. Forgot to point out:

    No swap? (I think Xen is the one with swap and not burst memory.)

  5. We have some problem with the kernel that is why you see packet loss and now is corrected

    @drmike

    We have swap in all xen packages and is the same as the dedicated ram.
