HostFolks – $5.95 OpenVZ VPS with 512MB

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 17, 2010 @ 3:44 am, by LowEndAdmin

Hostfolks Internet Via this WHT offer. Well. Just let me show the specs of Hostfolks Internet‘s OpenVZ VPS offer first.

  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/vePortal
  • Scranton PA Datacenter
  • $5.95/month

No prize for guessing whom are they reselling for :) Domain was registered 3 months ago (for 8 years!!!) Domain has been registered since 2001 and according to some of the comments the business has been running for over 9 years.

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.

  3. Hostfolks has been around since about 2001 when I first hosted with them. The domain was only RENEWED 3 months ago. Why not be accurate and check your facts when you do a ‘review’?

    Personally I have found them to be an excellent hoster (5 sites) and I have also recently bought a VPS from them. Excellent service and fast connection.

  4. I stand corrected. Must have been blind when I try to read the numbers from `whois` :) Well. Glad that you have enjoyed your BurstNet-resold VPS.

    I got my VPS and I am pretty happy with it.
    They got the hostname wrong once, but I filed a ticket for it and it got fixed.
    (Five minutes after that I noticed I could have done it too…)

    As far as I am concerned they are excellent value and have good support. I am very happy with my hosting :-)
