        Not sure why you are getting low throughput as the provider posted “We are utilizing 3.5 inch SAS drives @ 15K RPM” and usually it means 250+ MB/s in a cheap budget VPS.

    SCAM?
    I order the plan and paid the billing.But they banned my account with no explanation.
    Anyone else know about this?

    • Only they would. Why not ask them?

      Did they refund your money?

      I’m sure you’ll be listing your reference and/or ticket numbers shortly.

    • Hello Herbert,

      While we really appreciate your business the distance between your billing address and current location is too great. Because of this, we were unable to accept your order at this time. I’m very sorry about this.

      If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly (nate [at] kazila).

      Problem solved.
      They refund my money and promise to get me all setup again if i correct the address.
      But i still advise you to notice people that will be canceled.

    Sounds like instead of using a fraud prevention service they are checking the distance of an address given at billing time vs the address of a paypal account?

        The “Direct link to sign up” is link to a plan with 512MB ram. But I need more Ram. Is there any 1G-plan in discount?

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.
