HWS Hosting – £4 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: January 3, 2010 @ 10:49 am, by LowEndAdmin

HWS Hosting Via this WHT offer. HWS Hosting, who has been featured a few months ago, has released some new year promotions. Using coupon code NEWYEAR10 to get 50% recurring discount + increase resource limit. So for £4/month (~USD$6.47) you get:

  • 128MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • CentOS/Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora/OpenSUSE/Gentoo

You can pick either Bluesquare UK or Colo4Dallas US data centers. I saw that they have also swapped out HyperVM for SolusVM which can be quite a good idea.

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.

    Just signed up for this, setup time was about an hour, which if done by hand I think is pretty good for a Sunday. First impressions are excellent, latency is very good. SolusVM or the CentOS setuo seems to have a slightly different iptables to the one I’m used to, but no problems so far at all.

    I’m really not sure how they can offer this for the price, or how sustainable the price might be but so far recommended! I’ll report back when I’ve tested a bit more.

  2. Thanks for the feature again, much appreciated.

    We’ve been at this for almost 3 years now, don’t worry we wouldn’t be offering these packages if we couldn’t afford to :-)

    The code seems still effective as if today, except it’s not 30gb storage but 15gb, otherwise I don’t have to think hard before making my choice.

  4. At 2nd February will be full month using HWS Hosting and still continue. There’s no major problem and satisfied with the fast access from my country in Indonesia. Only 9 hops, just like my local data center :)
