      This was posted not based on price, but the fact that providers in Norway don’t pop up all that often here, as I stated in the post.

    • @Matt, Thanks for the post!

      @Lucas,

      Regarding stability, you may have recently encountered issues with our platform in Finland. We have implemented measures for faster reaction times and to prevent it happening again.

      On our Norwegian VM platform, we’ve reduced the possibility of failure between routers and switches (Cisco). The use of bonded NICs (LACP) and HSRP provides resiliency. We’ve monitoring services enabled (per minute) to check availability, and alerts (SMS + email) will be sent to our support team in case of downtime. Apart from the network, servers are hosted in an ISO certified DC, with all the necessities (UPS, high-grade security, HVAC cooling etc)

      A large fraction of the pricing is due to the network design and cost per Mbit. According to our surveys, pricing of $10/month (~NOK 85,- month for 1GB RAM) is cheaper than quite few local providers offering services in Norway.

      When we fail to meet the uptime agreement, we will always provide compensation (in accordance with our terms of service). However, we always try and ensure maximum availability.

      I’ll be happy for you to offer credit for the instability, if you haven’t received any yet (even if you’re not a current customer).

      Thank you.

        There a few LEB deals in Norway exist under $5 per month. Norway providers expensive itself, resellers try to fix that for now :) Don’t need free credit

    • Hi Kai,

      There are definitely no issues with our site. We’ve had 0 downtime the past month. The issue may be related to CloudFlare?

      Thank you.

    Your site won’t load, but other sites do. Something with CloudFlare? Thanks :)

    • Thanks for the feedback and we’ll investigate what we can do. I’m sure it is related to our Access Rules on CloudFlare.

    They don’t allow you to use the VPS for VPN.

    • It’s fine for personal use. If you’re providing VPN services for commercial purposes, please contact us for permission. We may change this policy in the future.

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.
