LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

HydraVPS – $3 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Orlando

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 10, 2011 @ 1:07 pm, by LowEndAdmin

HydraVPS Dmitry from HydraVPS has emailed me with an update to their previous offer. Same “Copper VPS” OpenVZ plan as before, but now at $3/month with discount code LOW256. Here is the direct link to place an order, and you get

  • 256MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Payment via PayPal or credit card. Servers with DimeNOC in Orlando FL and according to Dmitry they have their own rack there. HydraVPS is part of “Elite Fiber LLC” which has been around for 3 years.

Since the last post, where I pointed out both NS being on the same IP address, they have now moved their website to SoftLayer in Houston — except both their NS appear to be still on the same server, despite being on 2 different class C’s! Having “Local Key Validation Failed at Directory Check” while doing a licensedebug check is also a bit worrying. WHOIS is masked currently. However from Dmitry’s tutorial blog he seems to be quite technical and knows what he is doing.

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.

      I used support a couple of times (nothing major, just a couple of requests) and the response was very fast and accurate to what i was requesting. Ping is also super low for me, which is a plus. Bandwidth has been stable, can’t get better than this for $3!
