HostMist Urgh. Having an “exclusive offer” day today. Matthew from HostMist emailed me a few days ago on their exclusive offer for LowEndBox readers. Use the promo code lowendbox to get 15% off recurring discount. Their Lightning package would then be $5.10/month after the discount, and has

  • 128MB guaranteed/192MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 150GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are in Seattle with Spectrum Networks. It’s also good to see HostMist coming back after being listed as “half dead” earlier this month. All the best with keeping the servers running :)

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.

    So far I’m very happy with HostMist. I signed up for Lightning, with 15% discount. There was an initial glitch in creating the VPS, but they answered my support ticket within 10 minutes. After that, everything has been great.

    The VPS is very fast. The host it’s running on doesn’t seem to be overly crowded.

    $ uptime
    12:23:50 up 2 days, 22:28, 2 users, load average: 0.02, 0.05, 0.01

    I don’t know if the load averages take into account the load on the entire host, or just my VPS. I’m not an OpenVZ expert by any means.

    Bandwidth is good, too.

    Overall, I’m a happy customer.
