Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

InternetVPS – $4.99 64MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 20, 2008 @ 9:58 am, by LowEndAdmin

InternetVPS.comSaw LowEndBox got mentioned in this WHT thread, and someone suggested InternetVPS.com for cheap low-end VPS. The plan is listed under “Other Plans” in small print, and the cheapest of them all — a $4.99/month VPS, comes with:

  • 64MB memory
  • 3GB storage
  • 50GB data transfer
  • CentOS / LxAdmin

Under their FAQ they said:

The InternetVPS Data Center in Scranton, PA USA is a high security facility.

That sounds like BurstNET to me, although their website is hosted with The Planet in Dallas.

    I’ve had the $5/mo. plan for a few months and it works fine for me.

    The RAM and B/W specs currently offered are 2x better than when reviewed here.

    The storage is still 3G which isn’t as attractive as some of the other $5/mo. VPS plans that have apparently popped up in the past couple of months.

    But I can’t help but say, hey, I’ve been using this service for a few months and it works fine for me.

    The only negative points I have are:

    1. I had to pay for a whole year, which I know is risky with a ultra-budget host, but at the time there didn’t seem to be any alternative to pay-per-year in this price segment (unlike today, I only saw two options at $5/mo. when I was in the market). Anyhow the risk $60 isn’t too huge.

    2. Sometimes the bandwidth seems a bit cheap. I mean generally it is fast, but sometimes I can’t get connections to certain Internet hosts from my VPS but I can connect to those hosts from home. No biggie because I can work around this when it happens.

    The major positive points that I have about this service are:

    1. In the few months that I’ve had it, the company hasn’t gone out of business and my server hasn’t gone offline.

    2. My server never seems overloaded.

    3. The network speed, for the most part, always seems reasonable to me.

    Anyhow, I felt compelled to say something since there’s pretty much no mention of this service anywhere on the Internet except for here.

  3. Yes they re-sell burstnet servers, I had a dedicated server their with a friend. How ever I’m pretty sure this is a one man show operation, network notices etc seem to be copied word for word from burstnet’s site. Burstnet don’t allow torrents…….. internetvps does….. hmmmmm

    I think the guy running the operation is a bit full of himself, be careful with this one.

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.
