Austin, Texas based Kazila LLC have been featured five times before on LowEndBox, since their first post back in February 2011. I’ve just read through the last few offers from Kazila that we have featured and the vast majority (99%) are all very positive which is a good sign. IPv6 is still nowhere in sight but I suspect it is more their upstream providers fault than their own. Unlike many of the vps offers we feature in ‘New York’, these servers are actually located in New York City at the 121 Varick St facility in Manhattan. As ever, we would love to hear your feedback if you’re a customer.

They accept payments via Visa, Mastercard, American Express and PayPal. They offer a comprehensive 14-day money back guarantee and provide a 99% uptime guarantee. Tun/tap is enabled by default and IRC/mailing servers are strictly forbidden. For More information, you may want to have a read of their Terms of Service.

    First I see a transatlantic latency below 70ms. Too bad IPv6 is not available in Steadfast :-(

  4. I signed up with Kazila back in March 2011, so next month it will be 2 years of service. Still very happy. My 512MB Xen VPS is at their New York location.

    So any chance to get IPv6 connectivity on your VPSes ?

    • Steadfast does indeed have IPv6 connectivity. We’ve even been allocated blocks of IPv6, it just hasn’t been implemented on our end. I can’t promise anything but I’ll work on this and hopefully make IPv6 available upon request within the coming days. I’ll definitely keep you posted.

    Do you have WINDOWS VPS or support installing via Custom ISO? I have licenses.

    February 13, 2013 @ 3:35 pm | Reply
    • No custom ISO support at this time, however we have Windows Server 2008 R2 x86-64 / Windows Server 2012 x86-64 templates available. You will need to supply your own license. If you’re interested, just sign-up as you normally would selecting any OS and open a ticket after purchasing.

    Everything is good except bandwidth addon. It’s too expensive.

    February 14, 2013 @ 6:58 am | Reply
    • tdcadm – Thank you for the feedback. Everyone’s bandwidth requirements are different so our bandwidth pricing will always be negotiable. If a customer ever needed extra bandwidth or went over their allocated bandwidth, we would most certainly work with them on the price. We’re not here to grill anyone with crazy overages. Our pricing will always be reasonable, competitive and similar to the market price within that particular location. That being said, if you need much more bandwidth feel free to contact our sales department for a more accurate quote.
