Hosthink have sent in another offer located in Turkey for LowEndBox readers. Unlike their last post, after much demand, a 256MB vps offer is also available to purchase.

VZ-1024

  • 2 Core Xeon CPU
  • 1024MB Guaranteed RAM
  • 1:1.5 Burstable RAM
  • 15GB RAID10 SSD Diskspace
  • 1 Gbps Uplink
  • 1000GB Bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

VZ-256

  • 1 Core Xeon CPU
  • 256MB Guaranteed RAM
  • 1:1.5 Burstable RAM
  • 5GB RAID10 SSD Diskspace
  • 1 Gbps Uplink
  • 300GB Bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 Address

As mentioned above, the 1024MB plan was featured back in December but the yearly 256MB plan is a new addition. On their last post, users reported good performance and a long review was left in Turkish. They’re using Dell servers for their VPS services with multiple SSD disks in RAID10 (with BBU) and a Xeon Processor. Every christmas, and holiday period for a fact, we seem to have a dip in traffic as people are usually more busy – so you may of missed Hosthink’s previous offer.

We are told that each vps will be instantly setup. IPv6 is not currently available. Paypal and Liberty Reserve are both accepted methods of payment. For further information, toy may want to have a look at the following PDF’s: Terms and Conditions and Acceptable Usage Policy.

Network Information:

Servers are located at the Radore Telecom datacenter in Istanbul, Turkey (Europe).

    Is there any good DC on the other side of the Bosphorus?
    I think having / claiming that your servers are in Asia is going to sell better here on LEB.

      I don’t like the idea that my VPS is in a DC which could be bombed by the PKK, Istanbul is finer than Ankara or something on the east side of the Bosphorus.

      Also it seems that the code LEBSPECIAL for VZ-1024 applies only to one month, not annually for example.

    • rds100,

      There are many datacenters in Anatolia. But our office is in Istanbul and there are 2 high level datacenters nearby. Also, these 2 datacenters has budget friendly to all of us.

      We can provide dedicated servers from Asia, but providing VPS’s will be quite difficult. But, we will consider this option.

      Just a clarification about Turkey bandwidth.I have a vps on the same datacenter(radore) with another provider.Speed test results are acceptable.Look at other providers if you need more speed(PM me on LET).
