Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

Hub – $5.97 192MB FreeBSD in Panama City, Panama, Central America

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 30, 2013 @ 5:40 pm, by Liam

Hub.org have been offering the below plan on their site for sometime. Even though they’re a 16 year old company, they are that well known around these parts. If this offer goes down well, Patrick informs us that they will look into an exclusive LEB deal for us. You will only be charged $1 for the first month.

Starter VPS

  • 192MB RAM
  • 2GB Diskspace
  • 128GB Bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • FreeBSD Virtulization
  • $5.97/Month | Order Link

Hub.org has been providing web hosting solutions since 1997. Hub are by no means small, with over 300 servers in Panama running over 1500 domains. Their newest servers are running 12 SAS Drives in a RAID10 configuration, 36+GB of RAM and Dual Quad-Xeon Processors. All of their VPS’s are based on FreeBSD’s jail feature, which allows them to provide vServers with minimal extra overhead. Every 24hrs a snapshot of each vServer is made to a computer within their office. They accept payments via Paypal, Credit Card and Pecunix. They have a 30-day money-back guarantee that they have “honored for years”. Thanks to everyone who entered our little contest. I will try and source/get a unique location every week from now on!

    Hello,

    Do you allow the user of the tun/tap device in your FreeBSD jailed environment so customers will be able to use private VPN software or ipv6 tunnels?

    Cheers!

    • Thanks for the question. We do have this setup but only for Premium and Enterprise accounts, not Starter or Basic.

    quite ironic to ask given the region and ypur upstream but… IPv6?

  5. I suppose we can use 200.46.208.146 as a test IP.

    Nice routes from Europe and decent offer for the location, although BSD jails aren’t my thing.

    • We do offer more than just BSD jails, but at the higher levels (Premium/Enterprise).

    Still not sure what I wanna use a Panama VPS for yet – the routing from my area isn’t great, but it would be pretty good for some SA countries it seems.

  10. Any FreeBSD alternatives and yearly plans?

    • Yea yearly plans would be very attractive!

      • Hey guys, thanks for the question.

        1 year $59.70 (save $11.94)

    • There are FreeBSD alternatives but only available for Premium/Enterprise VPS’, not Basic/Starter. Pretty much if there is an ISO that can be downloaded, we can help you run it on Premium/Enterprise.

    Hmm..signed, no email confirmation with login details,no response from support. Email used by Hub admin on PP free gmail.com and asking for a full postal address when pay. Very straightforward :/

    • Hey Lucas,

      No sign of any messages from you in the support mailbox and haven’t seen your signup. Try sending an email to support at hub dot org to further explain your situation and we can better help you.

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.
