InternetVPS When I did some search on the net today, found that an old provider that I’ve covered last year, InternetVPS, has updated their budget “Baby A” VPS plan. It now has:

  • 128MB memory
  • 3GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer

Basically double the memory and monthly transfer amount from over a year ago. The cost remains the same — $4.99/month… Until I hit Checkout to work out exactly how much it costs. At the end, the minimum you need to pay is $75.47!

  • 12 month prepayment required, so $4.99 x 12 = $59.88.
  • $12 “VPS Server License” whatever that is, but something you have to pay.
  • 5% PayPal Service Fee that is even more expensive than from PayPal themselves. Again, something that is not optional

At the end it comes down to $75.47 for 12 months, or around $6.29/month. Still not bad. But as I do not live in the land of US of A, maybe it is just me whom is not used to seeing one price and paying another.

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.

    Actually I’ve received a very quick setup and the server runs fine. Maybe someone had bad experiences. But I am quite happy with them. They have anytime money back guaranteed policy so you have nothing to loose. 1/10 people may have bad mouth.

  4. He actually has a non-refundable policy. It is stated quite clearly in the company’s terms of service. You should read them if you are under the impression you have any chance of getting your money back.

    If that doesn’t convince you, there are numerous screen prints on internetvps.org where he categorically states on numerous occasions a non-refund policy.

    Furthermore, there is more than one person complaining about his business practices.
