LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Hudson Valley Host – $4.50 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: February 9, 2011 @ 2:52 am, by LowEndAdmin

Hudson Valley Host Ernie from Hudson Valley Host emailed me their new discount for Valentine’s Day. Yes it is nothing better than buying him or her a new virtual private server, and even better when it’s 50% off recurring when you use the promo code valentine50. You can get “Starter” package for $4.50/month (direct order link).

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are all in New York as per their previous offer. Yup — previous offer was only 25% off but apparently even cheaper than this deal. You do get more monthly data though. From their About Us page they have been established since summer 2003.

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.

  6. I asked for a refund, and will not buy. The IP I needed was in NY, yet they gave me an ip in beverly hills, california. Then I received this (I paid with PayPal):

    Dear Customer,
    Thank you for your recent purchase. We appreciate your business. While reviewing your order we noticed our fraud detection system has marked your order as a high fraud score.

    Due to the fraud score being so high we need to verify your account. Please email us a scanned copy of the credit card or photo id that is associated with the credit card or paypal account. You may blackout the digits of the CC except for the last 4 numbers. Once received we will destroy the email.

    Or we can voice verify the order. Just give us a time to call.

    We do this to protect the customers and our selves against the high costs of fraud. Please reply asap with this information to avoid service interruption.

    Thank You,
    Ernie

    • Dont send this info, it could be used to commit fraud

    • Ernie - HVH:

      The reason we requested this information was due to an extremely high fraud score from our fraud detection system.

      We do not have any servers on the west coast so you getting an IP from Cali is impossible.

      Also if you look at the email we also offered to voice verify the order instead of sending a copy of your photo id.

      We also refunded your money promptly as requested.
