    Do you allow private networking between multiple VPSs?

    February 14, 2019 @ 5:52 pm | Reply
    • Ryahn,

      Yes, we can certainly set up private networking for you. Once you have ordered your VPS just open a ticket requesting private networking.

    No windows option and how do I know if I’m first 100?

    • Ervin Tay,

      Thanks for pointing that out. :)

      I’m working to get this added to the order form. You can also perform the install through our control panel.

      We are already past the 100 but we still honoring the free upgrade until Monday.

        I saw only Windows (Trial) version, so does that means i need to have my own product key?
        I think its a bad idea for “first 100″how would i know if im still the first 100

    Bought a KVM @LA to test. Very low I/O for a SSD node. Within the first 6 hours, the node went down. Iopened a ticket and the server was rebooted. Support is responsive, answering ticket within 15 mins. At first the system seems responsive, and it’s getting slower as they put more people on.

    Here is some speedtest.

      what utility and command line did you use for your speedtest; so we can compare with others ?

    • Pete,

      They do look terrible. They should be fixed now sorry about that. When the post went up there was a lot of orders and heavy usage. Thanks for sharing the speedtest! :)

    I did some googling and let me just say there’s some very generous quotas offered by this host (ahem) elsewhere on the internet as well. I signed up for an openvz VM, and I’ve been using it for a few hours now.

    Just so you know where I’m coming from usage wise, I’m trying to use the VM to do some learning specifically Ruby on Rails and Python.

    My first impressions are very positive. The server is snappy, the download speeds have been great and I really hope this lasts. The quotas are great!

    Bought and paid for service at around 12:30pm EST on NY node, still waiting for it to be setup, and I dont know if I`m in 100 ordered or not… If I`m not will probably cancel.

    I signed up yesterday, and already my vm is down and can’t be started. For the price I can handle it occasionally going down briefly, but this really isn’t a good sign.

    • jhr,

      The VPS should not be going offline at any price. If this is still an ongoing issue, please open a ticket and request my name “Kyle” and I will definitely get this resolved for you.

    My KVM is constantly down, I asked to move to another server. Same problem after 12 hours. Now, they can’t even maintain their main page up so I can open a ticket…. :(

    The nodes are down constantly, support team are useless and just say its working on their side. Don’t make the same mistake.

    • Chris,

      Sorry for the late reply. This is certainly unacceptable. Do you have a ticket number? I want to make sure this has been resolved.

    Got a 4GB pure SSD plan about a week ago. No issues noted so far. Happy with the service. New to VPS, so I’ve reloaded the OS at least 30 times… never an issue. Takes about 20 seconds before I can SSH back in.

    A bench from my server in NY.

    So no more upgrades?

  14. I bought 2G-KVM-plan in L.A. around the beginning of February. The server status was unstable in the first few days as previous comments. Except for the first few days, I like the service they provide.

    For me in Taiwan, the ping time to L.A. is about 140ms. I also have one at ChicagoVPS, but it has more expensive and higher ping time.

    This is my experience since these days. By the way, hope Hostflyte won’t be like Hiformance …

  17. I got a kvm vps yesterday, so far so good. I paid for a 512M one and upgraded to 1G memory automatically, that’s impressive. I’m happy with my server for now. I’ll report here later if something comes up.

  19. Bought the x2 CPU, with the double offer upgrade on Mar 7th. Compute performance seems to be highly variable with IO performance sometimes dropping to sub 3MB/s, experienced one outage lasting around 30 mins. Support is responsive and respectful.

    bench.sh results at the time of writing. For comparison, the free f1-micro GCP instance (HDD) hits a consistent 37.5MB/s. A Digital Ocean x2 CPU, 2GB RAM, 60GB SSD averages out around ~720MB/s.

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.
