Since November 2012, LetBox have been featured three times before. We last featured them in January when they were offering a $5.60/Month 2048MB OpenVZ VPS in Dallas, Texas. It’s great to see the odd image of a child has been replaced with an image of a rack! Their servers are using the Jaketown E5 Hex-Core processor, 32 GB or 64 GB ECC Memory, multiple Seagate Constellation drives in RAID10 with a Samsung 256GB 840 Pro Cache SSD. I’ve read over their last offer and reviews still seem to be mixed, so have a read for yourself before signing up. If you’re already a customer, leave your thoughts below.

LetBox accept both 2checkout (which accepts Paypal) and Payza. Refunds are not offer but Mohamed assures us that if your vps suffers with downtime, depending on the situation, you may be able to claim some service credit. IRC, VPN/private Proxies and Adult are allowed but Tor isn’t. For more information, you may want to view their Terms of Service.

Network Information:

They colocate their servers with coreXchange in Dallas, Texas.

    Why are all 4 offers for this LETBox posted by Zahra? 4 offers since November… Don’t the folks running this site see this as a bit much of pushing same provider when there are many others who are sitting in the queue?

    See the same provider-centric posts by moderators/admins here.

    Folks might want to beware that this company LETBox just merged/acquired/whatever the US operations of UP2VPS. UP2VPS services were amply problematic over the years.

        I really hope these folks speak/comprehend English better than UP2VPS support. Probably is one of the BIG reasons UP2VPS had so many issues with customers.

    I have had a 2GB VPS with them for over 6 months now, and don’t have any complaints about it at all. I’ve had overwhelmingly great uptime, and the network is reliable. My VPS came with “4TB” of bandwidth at 100Mbps, and unmetered at 10Mbps thereafter. The CP isn’t so bad either. Support has been great for me thus far.

      Fast response from support.

      “No Torrenting Allowed” apparently, which is fair enough, though not something I’ve come across before.
      So make sure you’re not going to be using it for torrenting before you buy it to save yourself some time.

          vPanel doesn’t work(it stopped working like a month ago, LetBox-434)
          I think larger storage is more attractive than RAM. We all know RAM allocation can be heavily oversubscribed….
          Putting CPU limit on a VPS product is just ridiculous…The cpu limit is already there by the amount of vCPUs you assign. I don’t get why the VPS service can be terminated by cpu overuse…it’s not a shared web hosting, right? With this kind of CPU policy good luck using 4GB of RAM…..

  28. DO NOT buy servers with this host, they limit CPU usage to 20% if you go over that they will send you an e-mail that you need to answer in 2hrs or they shut you down.

    This means even though it is not against their TOS, NO Minecraft servers or really anything else can be run on their VPS’s without going over that limit.

    • how it going? we have alot of client run Minecraft, if you can’t managed your Minecraft server then it’s your, not our fault.
      even using the cPanel will never over 10% of CPU, you get over load overage to 2:00 and about 40% of CPU.

      PS: i can give you big list of Minecraft server running at our nodes used 10% but we can’t for Privacy.

      April 1, 2013 @ 9:46 pm | Reply
      • First off that is not possible “even using the cPanel will never over 10% of CPU” Each player logged in uses around 2% CPU (as measured by mcmyadmin) when they are standing(not moving) usage on a basic Minecraft server.

        So with what your saying no MC server you have on your nodes has more then max 5 players and has ZERO mods, hell not even that much considering the CPU usage would jump past that depending on what they are doing in game.

        I have a server that has normally around 13 players on it at any given time and is running Divine RPG. 13×2=26% if they are standing still. Not including spikes when a player first logs in or if they are moving across chunks or between worlds.

        I can provide screenshots of all figures I have listed, can you provide screens of MC servers on your nodes not going over 10% CPU with the amount of players I have?

          I did not come to argue, this is just my assessment, by comparing it with the others, if your service is good, it would not hurt for me to say “good”.

          take a look at the other comments, I am not the only person who complained about the slow service.
