    Ah, good old HMB. Impressive offers. Used them many years ago and while the service was great, unfortunately had to cancel at the time as I couldn’t justify a vps then, and was unemployed.

    • Well, good news for you because there’s no particular limit set in place on a per-customer basis as to how many you can order. :)

      The special promotion as a whole is however limited by quantities and availability. But as long as you don’t see an out of stock message when ordering, then you should be clear.

        Thanks for the fast response Mr. Jonathan! That ends up working out perfect for the deployment then, I will go ahead and order four total. Two would be in Chicago and 1 in Canada and 1 in LA.

        Hoping to get everything setup quickly as my boss threw a deadline on me at the last minute, to finish everything by midnight today lol…

    I notice that my 1Gb $18/yr VPS in Canada is very slow on disk and CPU. The network seems OK downloading Ubuntu updates, but they seem to take a very long time to apply to disk. And even pressing enter over SSH prompt seems to lag, poor response. Seems like the server is overloaded.

      Can’t speak for Canada but my VPS with them in Los Angeles, CA is extraordinarily FAST. In fact, one of the fastest servers I’ve ever experienced.

    I order one last night, only had time to use it for a few hours before I ended up making my way to bed. But I was able to get my LAMP stack setup, and my first impression about them is good. The servers are fast. Had a generic question about OS last night, and support answered me in under 15 minutes.

    I’ll keep you guys updated with my experience.

    Price for additional IPv4?
    If i want to get a free vps for testing and after continue the service if i like it i am able to add addons after for some price like now?

    Thank you!

    December 7, 2017 @ 2:03 pm | Reply
    • Hi Lucas! The cost for additional IPv4 address is $1.50/month or if you’re on an annual plan, $18/year.

      To clarify the free month bonus offer for LEB is on top of your order. For example, if you order a VPS for a month, you get 2 months for the price of 1. Or if you order a VPS for a year, you get 13 months instead of 12.

      We will always be happy to work with you on any future upgrades required.

      Please do let me know if you have any further questions or concerns!

    Proving the poor quality of HostMyBytes:

    Hello everyone,

    Well, I have registered new here. I have been a guest member of this community for long. I always make it a point to go through this community reviews/suggestions/advises/etc while I pickup a host or an Internet Service. This time, I wish to share my experience with this company HostMyBytes. (You can’t post unless you’re a member & hence I have registered )

    Some preface:
    It’s been almost an year that I have been a customer with them. I am fed-up with them now, and I am changing to another host as soon as my account expires with them.

    HostMyBytes Service – My experiences
    I have two services with them. One being a VPS & one being a shared webhosting. I couldn’t resist an offer I had seen somewhere about a host sale & hence I went ahead with it. I did read this thread before going with HMB as well, but this wasn’t this long, then .

    My service experiences with cPanel shared hosting (Just a few instances):
    I had realised that the IP I was assigned is a blacklisted IP, and hence I was unable to send emails to major mail hosting providers. I had asked them to improve anti-spam features and assign stuff like DMARC, DKIM, SPF, EHLO, etc. In fact, during this tussle, I was given a link (which links to Office365 Adminstrators Troubleshooting for blacklist – which had nothing to do with my issue;) and was asked to go ahead & figure things out myself! What a shame. They can’t manage to ensure that their IPs are white-listed ones. And when they are blacklisted, they ask their clients to figure it out & resolve the issue themselves!? Such a pity! Anyways, it took them a week to set them all in order. I had to assist them and every stage, including what the TXT record entries should be.
    They always have disk space issues, as if they are always running out of space & it keeps affecting the clients. Their support keeps pacifying the clients asserting that the issue wouldn’t recur, but trust me it happens all the time. In short, if you’re a client with HostMyBytes, you can’t depend on the thought – “everything would be working fine”. You have to keep monitoring the **** yourself everyday, almost every minute. And the worst part, they don’t seem to monitor their clients’ services functioning. Like say for eg, if they had worked on some maintenance issue over a node, post that they wouldn’t bother to check if the clients on that node are functioning back. So, it is like that unless the client opens a ticket. I keep facing this disk-space thing every now and then.
    Their Uptime. Its certainly not as good as they claim it to be.

    I had requested a change of node as well, but nothing of such seemed possible, I guess.

    I have had no issues with the VPS, probably because I don’t need to depend on their support for anything. The VPS uptime has been better.

    HostMyBytes Support
    I am sure many users might have been impressed by the – “within 60 minutes response” for support tickets, but that doesn’t add to the ‘Quality’ of support. They must have placed a group of men to simply respond to one’s ticket within the 60 minute deadline & keep the user on hold, until the technical support takes over. Well, that is absolutely fine, as I would see it as a competitive strategy. Fine, no complaints here. But they fail in maintaining a sound support team.
    Just by claiming a 24X7 “very active” support doesn’t add a feather to their cap, obviously because their so called technical support team is damn dumb. I have been hosting with them since 1 year now & most of the support members have no knowledge on handling servers. On the contrary, the support members ask you the steps to accomplish the given task! It’s unfortunate that in almost every case that the support is clueless about proceeding ahead with any given task.


    Disclaimer: My intention of sharing this is not for bitching against HMB, I got nothing against them, in person. I have already paid for all my services. They have not cancelled/suspended any of my account(s), with which I might have had come here to bitch against them – like a few of you might think. And even if they’d, I’d consider better & legal ways to deal, instead of ‘bitching’.(Lol! ) So, No! Nothing like that.

    Anyways, my intention is very clear. Just like me, there are many users here & many unknown guest users (I was one, earlier) who do visit this forum for taking decisions on which host/service they should rely on. In this Hosting/Internet Service industry, where every now and then we see companies coming up, it becomes very important to judge, determine & choose the correct worth for.
    In short, if you’re looking forward to go with HostMyBytes, its definitely not worth it. Its not reliable, as you can never be in peace, that everything would be fine while its handled by them. If you’re HMB agent/management, please make an effort to improve the ‘Quality’ of your support & services.

    Cheers & Thanks!

      Ugh, can I please have the last 5 minutes of my life back? I’m never reading a wall of text like this again lol. This almost sounds fake, but part of me wants to believe you’re a real person, and just don’t know what you’re doing. Real talk brother, this is an UN-managed server just like 99% of the offers on this website are UNmanaged.

      If you want to take off the “un” and get managed support and service, please kindly pay the premium price tag and go with someone like futurehosting.com, you’ll be paying at least 10 times more but you will get the baby sitting that you need!

      As far as HMB, they are fine. I have been a VPS customer since April. Nothing bad or anything worth commenting about to say about them. Service works fine enough for me to trust to use it in production, nothing else to say really..

    • Hi Henry! Interestingly enough, I just ran a client name search in WHMCS; and to this end, we still don’t have a client by the name of Henry. In point of fact, we have not been selling any shared/reseller hosting for quite some time, how long ago was this? We decided to stop pursuing shared hosting a while back, so we could better focus our efforts on providing VPS services.

      Now that we’ve added more workforce to our team and have established our VPS services already, we will consider re-launching our shared/reseller hosting products in the near future. What location would you guys like to see this being offered in first :)?

      Also – I’m glad to hear your experience with our VPS has been satisfactory. I would love to hear from you and work this out, my email is jonathan@hostmybytes.com.

    I got one in Canada, and have been pleased so far. Only problem I have had was with ipv6, it took about a day for it to work properly. I never realized how much of a PITA it is to get OpenVZ/SolusVM to play nice with it until I started troubleshooting why it wouldn’t work. Lots of people trying to set that up and having it fail so for the price I think it is good even if it took a minute to work. I probably cost them more in troubleshooting time than they got from me, so I guess I’d better renew next year.

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.
