Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

Justgotvps.com – $4.95 OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 26, 2008 @ 9:08 am, by LowEndAdmin
Update July 2008: JustGotVPS seems to JustGotVanished. IP does not resolve. No support. Check last few pages of this WHT thread. Domain was registered through to 2018 though…

Saw this ads on WHT, where Justgotvps.com is selling their low end “Starter Root” VPS at just $4.95/month (or $4.16/month if you prepay for 12 months). The spec:

  • 108MB guaranteed / 256MB burstable
  • 5GB storage
  • 10GB data transfer
  • 50% CPU time

OpenVZ is used. The presentation looks like “Justgotwebsite”. Server is with Zanadoo.com in San Diego.

    Their Junior Root package comes in at $6.65/mo too if you prepay for 12 months. An email from their sales dept. lists the standard fare of OSes: centos, debian, ubuntu, …

  2. @abjr — thanks for emailing their sales dept. At 384MB burstable from their Junior Root package, I am afraid that it has way too much memory to qualify as a “low end” box :)

  4. well, i had one 128M box there, and upgraded to a 256 later, but after 3 or 4 months the site just went under.

    for about two weeks i couldnt access my box any other way except connecting the hypervm (and that only because i had it’s IP somewhere). now they’re totally gone.

    anyway, i got what i paid for…few times their disks were full so i decided to help them there – filled my disk space with crap so when the disk got full again i cleaned myself a GB or so until they fixed it.
    so in case they come back, i wouldn’t go there again…

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.
