        Looks good but I have two question … If I buy the Self-Managed 4GB OpenVZ for 1 Year, can you upgrade me to 1Gbps without delay? And the second question, does this plan include DDoS Protection? Thanks in advance.

        • Yep we can do that if you commit to a year up front. If you pick our NY location we will do our best effort to filter attacks as needed.

    can you clarify the no streaming policy? you can’t host files on there to stream personally to one computer?

    January 7, 2017 @ 5:38 am | Reply
    • I will need to re-word that in the AUP, that is geared more towards basic shared accounts, on VPS’s you will be fine to run something like plex for example as long as it is not causing any issues for other customers :)

        Thanks Nick! Just checking in on this, as I don’t see a change so far.

        • Haven’t added it to the order form yet, but if you order with any OS you can perform a re-install via the panel with Ubuntu 16, enjoy!

    “Low latency and high throughput network access to North America and Europe” I find that a bit difficult to believe, currently i have a KVM vps and the network has been slow in a good day I’m able to achieve 10mbit outside CC.

    Initial thoughts – not impressed. The signup page kept timing out (their side, CloudFlare made sure to let me know of that) so when I tried to buy the service nothing happened, but I got a Welcome email. Oh goodie, we’re in business (or so I thought). Then I log in to my account and see I have no services or invoices generated. OK, back to LEB to get the link again to try to buy! Go through the ordering process again and -like magic- times out again, but it generated an invoice this time! OK, start again. Log in, and Lo and Behold an invoice which I pay. Now my service is sitting as “Pending” and has been for the past while. Not sure if their using MaxMind or whatnot for fraud detection, but I don’t think it is that since you typically get a error message as well as the order is set to Fraud (I have experience with WHMCS) neither of which happened. So yes, we’re off to a bit of a shaky start. Once they get this ironed out we’ll see how it goes from there.

    • Glad to see you got things sorted, I see your order was placed at 2:09, paid for at 2:12 and then the welcome email was dispatched at 2:26.

      Please don’t hesitate to PM me on LET here if you require any assistance outside the scope of our ticket system and enjoy Zach!

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.
