Kazila – $6.95 512MB Xen VPS in Plano

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 3, 2011 @ 1:19 am, by LowEndAdmin

Kazila Nate from Kazila is offering LowEndBox readers an exclusive offer that’s not available on their website. Use this sign up link to get “KVPS-LEB” package for $6.95/month. Comparing to their previous offer, it has more memory but less monthly data.

  • 512MB memory
  • 8GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Servers with NorthTXConnect in Plano TX (test IP: 108.59.33.189). Some impressive performance report from last time. They have been in business since late 2007, and from their about page, “Kazila is a debt-free, privately held company with no intentions of selling any time soon” — which is good to know.

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.

  3. Kyrant:

    I’m seeing 70-90% packet loss from just ping, and my location for the test ipaddy.

    Also, the link to Kazila is referencing a different website (link has kazilla – should have one “l”, not two).

    Would love to check it out, after the problem with the packet loss is addressed.

    • Thanks. Link fixed.

      From my location I definitely don’t see any packet loss though.

  4. I’m not seeing any packet loss either but I will certainly look into it. Thanks for bringing that to our attention.

      • InsDel:

        From my own testing it seems that after a while of continuous testing ICMP ping packets are dropped, and some ICMP packets are dropped if coming from multiple locations at once. Don’t let it bother you too much though.

        August 3, 2011 @ 7:39 pm | Reply
        • InsDel – We actually have a firewall in place. I went ahead and made some configuration changes which should eliminate any packet loss.

  5. Good offer but low disk space. If you are processing a lot of data (say some backend system) then the disk should be appropriate, at least 15GB, in my opinion

    August 3, 2011 @ 3:53 am | Reply
    • Asim – I agree, we are not offering a large amount of disk space. But the disks are extremley fast and perform very well. All our nodes are equipped with 15K RPM hard drives backed by RAID-10.

  6. No 32 bit template?
    I only find 64 bit template

    • Not all our templates are listed during checkout. After signing up, you can adjust the OS to your liking through SolusVM. We have both 32 bit and 64 bit available. Sorry for the confusion!

  7. No IP?
    And we must pay $2 for 1 IPv4

    • Tom:

      Most likely 1 ipv4 is included, otherwise it would be to big of a failsh to even list this ;)

      • 1 IPv4 is included with this package free of charge. Extra IP addresses cost $2/per IP.

        • Our East and West coast locations (Los Angeles and NYC) should be available within the coming weeks. Unfortunately, we are only offering services in Plano at this time .

        • Mr.z – Yes of course. We will give all our existing clients the opportunity to switch to a different node if they would like better network latency.

      JUST ordered? And “still” waiting? Come on… why do you waste our time with this? Is it that hard to wait a bit more before public request which waste of time of everyone who open “new post”?

        August 11, 2011 @ 5:29 am | Reply
        • As Asim said, it’s Xen-PV. You can run your own kernel using PyGrub, which is what I’m doing (running 32 bit CentOS).

    I think they are having some problems, our vps is down, also their website is down for hours :/ Too bad, because it was really fast, we liked it

    • 90% packet loss on 216.66.77.124 for me when I traceroute to their website (about 4 hops up from their site). Network issue or getting DDoS’ed?

  14. I received an email before it went down regarding a 6 hour emergency maintenance window where they were going to add TW Telecom and Level 3 to their bandwidth mix. My VPS was down for 17 hours, and then came back up briefly, but has been up & down since then, and is basically still unusable.

    • Gulsen:

      Yes, same here, we got the same mail, we are able to boot our vps using the control panel, but goes offline when we try to login via ssh, but it seems like there is something wrong with the datacenter, not their fault I mean.

      August 12, 2011 @ 1:35 am | Reply
      • When I was able to login briefly, uptime shows the server itself is still running and didn’t go down:

        # uptime
         17:07:56 up 53 days,  2:52,  2 users,  load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00
        

        It seems to be a network issue for sure.

  15. Sorry about the lack of my response. As you can imagine, I have been busy with the outage all day today.

    Services have been restored at this point. I will have more information for you guys later as to what happened, but as of right now I am going to respond to all the emails backed up in the queue. If anyone has any issues, questions or concerns, please contact me directly.
