LowEndBox

Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

INIZ – KVM and OpenVZ Servers starting @ $18.58 per year – in 11 Locations!


Kishan from INIZ contacted us recently with offers in several locations. INIZ has been featured on LowEndBox several times and were established in 2012. They were later acquired by SYN LTD in 2014 and they have said their biggest focus for improvement in 2016 is to cut down ticket response times. Currently the average is less than an hour for every ticket sent in. There are a total of 11 locations in this offer. I hope you’re ready because there’s a lot of variety in this post. All the following offers are non-inclusive of VAT and prices are converted from GBP so may fluctuate slightly but all are within the current LowEndBox pricing rules at the time of posting.

As always we encourage all users to read the Terms of Service prior to signing up.

    • There are more IO plans available on https://openvz.io however again bandwidth isn’t more than what you’re looking for. Remember on these IO plans the bandwidth is only outbound, incoming is unmetered. Additional is £2.50/mo per TB outbound

      • I was also wondering if there were any options with a higher number of cores? All of the services I run are multithreaded+distributed and at peak times tend to use a fair bit of CPU.

    • You refused to provide verification and your order was cancelled. Just like anywhere else where you may fail the verification process the order would be cancelled.

      You also contacted our credit card merchant stating what we asked for is against “PCI compliance” and was told what we requested is perfectly fine.

      October 12, 2016 @ 11:32 am | Reply
      • No other hosting company has ever asked me to provide a photo of my credit card. Your process is unusual, and you burn any customers who question it.

        The bottom line is that – rather than allowing me to pay via another method – you just terminated my server. I cannot trust you with my data.

        October 12, 2016 @ 2:37 pm | Reply
        • You trusted us with authorization of your card where we could charge any amount and signed up with us in the first place so there was clearly trust there up till point we asked to verify the card is owned by you.

          We asked for photo of the card with the details we can see on our end which is last 4 digits and your name. Nothing extremely confidential or vulnerable, so to us there is no reason to accept alternate form of payment when a simple request was not met.

          You even went to the extent of emailing our merchant (a first) accusing us of not being “PCI compliant”, most people will a) provide what was requested or b) ask for a refund and be done with it.

    Hi Guys,

    I am an existing customer of yours with an small KVM plan which is used for one of my main NS and I just wanted to first let everyone know that you have been extreamly reliable over this almost past year. I currently have an KVM VPS in NL and theres only been one slight outage when you upgraded/moved the node or something (cant remember excatly the reason right now) but I remember you gave more then adaquate notice of the maintance window. Apart from that, uptime has been 100%, which is as perfect as any other good/expensive providor. Even factoring in the slight outage, its still 99.998% (rough guess).

    In fact I just took a look to show facts… heres my uptime records shows of this machine..

    Note: the 41 and 21 day records reset was due to kernel upgrades + moddifed LUKS custom initrd tweaks which sadly needed a reboot to test.

    Anyway, the main reason for this quick message is that I have a few quick questions to ask with regards to your OpenVZ Stor500 offering.

    I just noticed that you still have a few in stock and wanted to make sure that a few things are covered first before I place an order, so we dont waste eachothers time. I am planning to use it with TAOE-LAFS but your order forms/offer here do not state whether you supply an IPv4/IPv6 or even a NATTED address. Due to that its a storage node, I was not sure whether you only offer rsync/cifs/ftp/sftp/whatever access only and that you cant install/tweak the OS i.e. just an account not a VPS. You do mention that you use SolusVM with this but still with it so I assume its a real VPS and not a pre-configured storage account. Always safer to check if in doubt.

    Second question, assuming you do give IPv4 with it (I expect you do but I best check as you dont mention it in the offer or website), do you support TUN/TAP on these OpenVZ nodes? I sadly will require this so I can hook this up to the VPN so it can access the other nodes securely.

    Thirdly, how many INODES (max) you can use on the filesystem. I know this is a strange question to ask but ive found a lot of VZ providors in the past offering very few (few thousdnad usualy if that which is no where near enough) which will just break things as im sure you know the way TAOE works is that 1000’s if not millions of files/chunks are used to create a single file which means I need adquate INODES support and I can’t tweak it as its not real virtulization, only you can, hence why I am asking.

    Right, I think thats about it, I look forward to hearning from you and again and to everyone else… I highly recomend this providor. A++

    Kind Regards,

    Simon

    • Hi Simon

      Glad to hear you’re happy with us, the NL KVM downtime was due to hardware upgrades.

      Stor500 includes 1 IPv4 & IPv6 (dedicated), the storage plans are essentially just OpenVZ VPSs so you have full root access. TUN/TAP/PPP can be enabled from the control panel, we can enable quotas/FUSE if required for remote mount via ticket.

      If you also order Stor500 or higher you now get 1GB RAM instead of the 512MB advertised here (all existing customers were already upgraded!).

      If you can open ticket to sales@iniz.com I can double check the inode limits on the plan and get back to you.

    I want to give a shout out to these guys. I have the OpenVZ Extreme Plans X256 plan and very happy with their service out of Dallas. There was no ipv6 installed but a note to the helpdesk and it was quickly added. They have CentOS 7 however you’re still limited by the older OpenVZ kernel. If that doesn’t bother you then you’re good. yum update of the system once installed was real quick. The IP address I was given was clean on all but one obscure RBL that I checked.

    Judging by some of the comments, it looks like they try and to keep a clean service free from spammer, scammers, and general asshats which is nice.

    If you have a legitimate reason to have a server. I’d highly recommend these guys.

    Same problem as already reported. Upon payment completion a photo of my credit card was required. Guess if I would have sent them, upon the next payment a photo of my driving license, then passport and finally I would have to come over and pay personally.

    Oh – one comment for the above “screenshots” about system uptime. Except there’s some technology like Ksplice or live kernel patching, uptimes of more then 300 days are likely impossible for one server, except there’re no security updates at all.
    Not to forget a bad network – e.g. packet drops – aren’t that unimportant. A purely running machine needs to be accessible, perform well, guarantee promised resources for the running VM’s – guess the last part should be no problem remembering their payment acceptance methods

    • Hi Tom (If that is your real name – I don’t see any orders in recent weeks from such name)

      We have never asked for further documents upon providing photo of the card. If you are unable to provide this because you’ve used a different name/want to hide your identity/aren’t the owner of the card (fraud) then it’s expected your order will be cancelled. As stated in all verification emails, if you don’t want to provide it then you’ll receive a refund and you move on with your day but that seems to be too hard for some.

      300+ uptime is easily possible, we’ve had multiple KVM nodes with over 400-500 before. OpenVZ nodes are more likely to be rebooted more often due to random kernel panics et all great things about OVZ but still are capable of well over 200+. We use KernelCare and I know a lot of hosts here do, you can read more here: https://www.cloudlinux.com/all-products/product-overview/kernelcare and yes it has security updates.

      It’s the first time we’ve had someone complaining stating we have a “bad” network, please feel free to back your claims. Frequent packet loss is not normal and quite rare.

    I am a very happy customer of INIZ for over 3 years. I currently have a VPS in London. Support has always been fast and the servers are very reliable. I get good speeds and our business has expanded using these services from INIZ having been let down badly by previous big name suppliers.

    I’ve used a number of VPS providers over the years. I’ve been with Iniz since 2014. From my personal experience Iniz have been very good especially compared with a number of other service providers. I’ve never felt that I’m getting anything less than I signed up for. I’ve found support to be first rate.
    Iniz is always the first place I check when I’m after a new VPS.

    The support is very arrogant and unhelpful, I have offered them for identity verification documents as I live in two different countries but they blocked my IP without effort to solve the problem.

    Imagine if we have data hosted already and they blocked us, we will lose everything.

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.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
