LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

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

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 16, 2010 @ 1:10 am, 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 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.

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.

    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.
