CoinsHost is part of Incloudibly, who seems to have a similar offering bit with longer billing terms. CoinsHost is primarily based around paying with BitCoins, though you can also pay with money. These VPS come with a 10Gbps uplink, which is quite exceptional for a VPS in Europe with this price. Host nodes have dual Intel E5645 CPUs, 192GB of RAM, SAN-based storage, and 4x 10Gbps uplink. That’s a pretty serious setup. There’s 24/7 technical support via chat, e-mail, and tickets. If you give these guys a short or are already a customer, please share your experiences with us in the comments!

In addition to BitCoins, you can pay with Litecoins, Nextcoins, PayPal, ank Wire, Credit Card, Webmoney and Perfect Money. There’s over 200 templates available and servers include VNC capabilities, a firewall, snapshots, and more. Please note that you do need a phone number in order to pass account verification! Before you order, as usual, please read their Terms of Service!

    I have similar XEN VPS on that network (Solar Communications), but from another company and I have to say it works great. For two months had no little downtime, node servers aren’t overloaded. The policy is nice, you can really feel the power of your server and do many things without killing processes, etc. Highly recommended.

    @Asim:
    You have a small textbox on the left of the contract duration bar in the “billing period” section. Type in there “3” and the order will reflect that.

      But then I see on their blog:
      “Kindly be advised that current minimum billing cycle for all VPS orders is 12 months. Should you have any questions regarding this update, please contact support staff for further information.”

      Need some explanation then.

    Just as @sklb said, I DON’T recommend their service. I had initially a 7 day free trial 1 year ago, which was super good so I bought their service for 6 months, and then after 1 month there was a major downtime with about 2 weeks because the “moved”, the staff responded with refund and 6 months free service which was kind of okay. Then I went in again and paid for another 6 months, and since then the IO drops to under 1MB/S sometimes, since about 3 months the VPS kept getting offline for a few hours every Sunday without any notice whatsoever, and NOW its even worse constant lags probably due to overloaded nodes, and the VPS now goes offline for few hours mid-week AND Sunday.
    Their service is worse than the 1€/month from @arubacloud.

    We placed an order with them for this offer and paid via bank transfer in full for the year. Over one week later and they have not provisioned and will not respond to emails.

    Yes, the minimum is 12 months for VPS, 6 months for Cloud servers, but 1 month for dedicated servers. I think it is just to increase the “minimum entry” to prevent abuse. They are offering VPS packages to anonymous users too, but their IP space is still pretty ‘clean’.

    Positives:
    – clear documentation and product advertisement
    – responsive and knowledgeable support (their 24/7 live chat is really 24/7)
    – no 3rd-party tracking pixels embedded in their site, the chat is embedded too (not some livechatinc embedded iframe)
    – we’ve been using them in the last year, with no issues

    Negatives:
    – no ipv6
    – no OpenBSD template
    – no low-cost dedicated servers
    – sending registration/server data in plain-text e-mail (but which provider doesn’t do that?)

    Dejan, they have SAN storage for virtual servers, which might be slow for some specific tasks. But luckily it is clearly written on the product page.

    I had a very bad experience with the provider coinshost.com. I purchased a VPS server there for 12 months in advance (no other option is available). Unfortunately the connectivity of my server was absolutely awful to a point where the server is completely useless to me. Coinshost seems to constantly monitor and block outgoing traffic after a short while. The customer service denied to even acknowledge the problem and refused to give me any kind of refund depsite having used the server for not even a week. Please stay away. No legit business should treat their customers like they do.
