HostCadet – $5.99 VPS with 128MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: May 27, 2009 @ 11:21 am, by LowEndAdmin

Update August 2010: HostCadet.com has moved to a new IP since August 12 and its home page has been blank for the past weeks. I do not think they are in business anymore. FAIL.

HostCadet Update HostCadet is using Xen.

There are some hosts that present lots of information on their website to help prospects making decisions. Then there are some who leave important information hidden. HostCadet is probably one of them. Spotted their VPS offer from $5.99/month — which gives you:

  • 128MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer

No info on what kind of virtualization technology they use. No words on where they are hosted or test IP (although their website is hosted at Colorado Info Tech). At least they have some very out dated Linux distributions that help you to run your old applications. Debian 3.1 anyone? Or Fedora 6? The glowing server looks pretty hot though.

Although the domain has been registered since 2007, but it appears that the site has only recently been in the current state. So buyers beware.

  1. We have contact info on our site plus we have live chat available for support and sales. Just like it shows in our vps plans area you can see we are using XEN. We do have older dists. listed but can install any requested. We will have the new ones up listed on the site this week.

    Yes we are a new company but we are here to stay. We own all of our equipment and have hands on access to all our servers.

  2. It looks like HostCadet has changed hands. WHOIS updated to point to SpecHosting.com, and has been down since 3 August. Probably going to the dead pool this month.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
