James from HostFolks contacted us recently with a nice little offer. They were last featured in 2012 so it’s good to see they’re still around. They have been operating since 2001 and have had a lot of positive feedback on previous LowEndBox posts so I hope to see the same here as well. They offer OpenVZ servers in the following locations: Atlanta, New York City, Dallas, Arizona and Amsterdam. Their KVM offerings are only currently in Atlanta, Georgia.

They’ve generously increased some of the resources of these plans compared to their regular offerings just for LowEndBox readers, thanks guys!

They accept PayPal and Stripe for payments and as always please read their Terms Of Service/Acceptable use Policy so without further delay let’s get into the offers!

      Yes you’re right but they have told us they will be corrected, if not, send them a ticket and I’m sure they’ll be happy to help you.

    My KVM VPS is still not configured, after close to 24-hours. I thought that I would be able to get NYC, but was told I would not be able to get NYC. I have since inquired, but received no response about the location they are offering me.

      Paid for a VPS Deluxe on 6/2/2017 and various service requests, on 18/2/2017 I’m still not able to login to SolusVM. I have received on reply that they are working on the issue, but no solution or further communication. Currently asked for a refund and in dispute mode. Really absurd, haven’t anything like this

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.
