Hostigation – Proxmox OpenVZ VPS from $3.50/month in Charlotte, NC, USA

This is another post where we pick providers outside our ticketing system. As Maarten gave me another spot to choose a host I wish to feature, I am selecting one that is special to me personally. In my perspective, I don’t buy services from a company – but from the owner/people behind the service. That is why we sometimes leave a specific provider when it is bought by another. We get the feeling that it is not the same when there is change of ownership.

Having said that, in my opinion, one of the most knowledgeable and trustworthy person in LEB/LET is Tim Flavin of Hostigation. Community reviews of his service are very positive. I have been a customer, and I only have good things to say about him and his company.

I am sharing below one of Hostigation‘s current promotion listed at LowEndTalk. This is a promotion for their Proxmox platform and the coupon code 30OFF4LIFE gives 30% discount and 10% account credit for any bitcoin payment.

Proxmox OpenVZ VPS

  • 512MB RAM
  • 512MB vSwap

  • OpenVZ
  • 1 x IPv4
  • 1 x IPv6
  • $5/month
  • $3.50/month using coupon 30OFF4LIFE
  • Order Here

The above configuration is what’s included for the mentioned price. Memory, vSwap, CPU Cores, Disk Space and bandwidth can be adjusted for additional cost. Hostigation is also offering other types of service. You may check their website for details.

Acceptable payment options are PayPal, Credit Card via PayPal, Credit Card via Stripe, BitCoin, Check/Money Order (US Funds drawn on US Bank). Additional IPv4 address are available for $2/mo (with justification), while extra IPv6 are of no charge. Although we highly recommend Hostigation, we strongly encourage that you read their Terms of Service before making any purchase.

  1. IF ProxMox and openVZ i guess they use Proxmox 3.4 (or below).

    Is there a plan to upgrade to Proxmox v4? and LXC (and drop openVZ)?

    Hostigation has been the most reliable host that I’ve used so far (out of a dozen or so), highly recommend Tim.

    Used them for at least 2 years at NC location. First year was great, the last 1-1.5 were pretty horrible. Not as horrible as BuyVM, but no one can top how shit BuyVM is. Definitely not recommended. YMMY though, but I doubt it. I moved on Leaseweb, Ramnode, Vultr for reliability/stability.

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.
