    I have been using these guys for several months now. The server is fast and is as advertised/promised. Would recommend.

    Hello Peter.
    Dedicated IP or shared?
    How many IPv4 for one vps?
    How much are additional IPv4?
    5 IPv4 can be allocated to one VPS?

    • Ruska:

      Can you offer the same config, for the same price, but with a PURE SSD of a smaller volume? For example, 60GB RAID10 Pure SSD.

    • Hi,

      The IP addresses are 100% dedicated and each VPS comes with one. Additional IPv4 can be assigned for $15/year each

      Regards

    • Hi,

      It won’t be bad at all! We use the Intel Xeon E3-1240v3 processors (or better), you can research benchmarks for that CPU, they do bench pretty high

      Regards

        In what location did you have problems ?

        • Oleg:

          No problem. Work perfectly. I was wrong. You will not be able to install Docker on such a VPS. And I bought a server to learn how to work with containers. But it was my fault.

    Along the way, no one here is going to answer our questions. It’s been almost 6 days. We must take the server elsewhere.

    Is it interesting there are normal hosters? Constantly and everywhere there are problems. Maybe the owner of lowendboh need to think about it? Maybe you need to put user loyalty higher profits?

    Ordered one of these annual plans and the kernel was too old to support what I wanted. Support was quick to tell me that, but billing has not replied to my request for a refund after canceling within 6 hours of purchase.

    • Jimmy:

      Update: My billing ticket requesting a refund was closed without reply and I have not received a refund. I paid for 1 year of service which I canceled immediately(as soon as they replied to my support ticket) after realizing it wasn’t going to work. I have no server and no refund.

      Same here!
      First time asked Paypal to refund and I got refunded within 3 days.
      Second time, they kept charging my CC despite opening support tickets telling them to stop!!!
      It’s been 2 weeks+ now, and got a vague answer , no money was refunded yet.
      I have SS proof of everything here.

    • A lot of OpenVZ hosts seem to use ridiculously old kernels (2.6 series). Maybe that’s an OpenVZ thing, but it’s very annoying, as Debian buster/testing doesn’t run on any kernels older than 3.10 due to its glibc version dropping support for old kernels.

      If you want a newer kernel, you’ll likely need to use a host that uses machine virtualization such as KVM, or containerization that supports newer kernels (like LXC)

        It’s an OpenVZ limitation.

        I have found that most who claim KVM aren’t actually running KVM.

    I have had them for a few months and this is how I have reviewed them:

    Pros: Fast response
    Cons: Responses are not clear and require additional follow up multiple times or ignored
    VPS is not stable and goes down frequently, also laggy

    Every request I have submitted I have gotten a non-answer answer. Asked for a refund and still waiting for an answer, it’s been 11+ days now. Ignoring your customers is petty.

    • Richard:

      They sent me an update saying the request has been fulfilled but still do not see the refund, sent another request asking where it is and now they want to move me to another server to resolve the issue, so as of right now they are avoiding giving me a refund.

      In all reality they should have offered me this when I was having the issue and a day later NOT 2-3 weeks later.

      DO NOT GET A VPS from these scam artists.

    hi, is the port 25 open for email service? and a configurable reverse_DNS? thanks

    • Richard:

      Yes but this seems more like a support question reserved for a ticket to the provider.

      They do not but most do not and I would recommend using CloudFlare.

    Hello together,
    I ordered this server a week ago.
    The transfer speeds aren’t sufficent, I opened a ticket, immediatly.(#550314)
    The port was upgraded, but without success.
    Asked for a refund, no answer.
    Canceled the services, no money, opened another ticket, was closed without answer (#441980).

    No I have lost my money and my VPS.

    Maybe Peter or some other HostedSimply guy could help here.
    Thanks!

    Do not take a server from them! The support is fast and that’s it. Otherwise one waits days, in vain, and comes out on the same – NOTHING.

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.
