LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

HostMonkey – $5 256MB OpenVZ VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: August 25, 2010 @ 11:24 am, by LowEndAdmin
Update December 2011 — HostMonkey was sold to WebRulon in Oct 2010, and they have just turned off their website in November.

HostMonkey Someone from HostMonkey emailed me about their exclusive offer for the LowEndBox readers. Use promo code lowendbox to get double resource when you order their Baby Chimp package. So for $5/month you get

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

It was less than 2 weeks ago when they last featured here, and I assume they are still using HostDime as their data center. According to HostMonkey the promo is only available to the first 10 signups.

They do have a customer according to the testimonial page. Bobby from Boondockseries.com praises them — registered by the same guy behind Nixism that got sold to HostDime :) Well being 20/21 year old and 2nd hosting business — all the best with HostMonkey :)

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.

    Not that I expect anyone takes these guys too seriously, but it might be worth noting that boondockseries.com is with HostMonkey’s *shared* hosting, not their VPS offering. According to an IP search, they have three or four other customers on the same IP, around ten sites… most of them pretty spammy, MFA crap. Still, money is money, right?

    Yes, boondockseries is not using our VPS Services, he is on a shared web hosting plan. To my knowledge, we do not host any websites that send spam or involved in doing anything illegal. We haven’t received any spam complaints, or DMCA’s.

    We are a reliable web hosting, search WHT(webhostingtalk) for reviews.

    1. How many IP will be given with this plan?

    2. At least 512MB Ram can be ensured? Currently in burst.net I’m using 400-480MB Ram, some time 490 not more than that.

    3. Do you offer RDNS and RWHOIS with the given IP?
