    250MB memory/512MB swap

    i think you mean 256MB. Also in the WHT thread, it says price excludes 19% VAT.

  3. @LEA – Several Netherlands companies I’ve been dealing with considered intensive communication and getting to know each other as part of their way to seek for a long term loyal customers :)

    Okay, not laughable transfer like on the other offer, 2TB here, “now we’re talking business” :)
    E-Mail ordering is a complete joke though. As is “1x IPv6”, come on, no one asks you to give a /64 or /48 to a VPS (given that is not quite possible with the current management tools), but make that at least 4 or 16 addresses, it’s not like you have a scarcity of them.

    • Maybe they are trying to conserve IPv6 address as well, just in case your inter-galactic friend from an alternative dimension of a different time frame wants to ping you from a unique IPv6 address! :)

      But I agree for all the earthlings it just does not make sense to not give out at least 16 addresses for each VPS.

      Included in all our VPS offers:
      SolusVM Control Panel
      1 IPv4 address, additional IPv4 addresses are free (ripe conditions)
      1 IPv6 address, additional IPv6 addresses are free
      Live bandwidth stats
      Reverse DNS

      (c) WHT offer page.

      So you just need to ask. And while they don’t issue a /64, I got 8 more /128s during setup.

        Reverse DNS is very a useful feature if I need to run any serious mail server.

    Quite a good deal, since the prices of YISP went up…

    Think i’m gotta try them out for a little web/mail server :)

    Wonder if we can have FreeBSD though, often possible with Xen + “Other OSes are available on request”

      Based on their wht thread looks like *BSDs are possible.

    And do you know if it would make sense to run a BSD under Xen? As I guess the main host will be running GNU/Linux, might be better to run a Linux distro?

    • circus:

      Why not? it’s Xen-hvm (not PV), shouldn’t be a problem. rootbsd.net runs *BSD under Xen-HVM which is under linux.

    “Order: Please send an e-mail to: support@liteserver.nl” – this is not nice.

    Does anyone have any experience on their vps plans?

  9. Currently on a trial vps, their support is fast and the servers are fast. The network connection is great and I have a nice latency from the united kingdom. You should give these guys a go, about the email ordering, it’s not a big deal so why complain about it?

      E-mail ordering – yes, it is a turn-off.
      Btw I also heard that you can only pay via Bank Transfer, is that true?

    Looks like there are some questions about e-mail ordering and how we assign IPv6 addresses.

    I know that a /64 is very normal in these days. Unfortunately, the panel (SolusVM) which we are using doesn’t support /64 allocation for each VPS. So for now we have a /64 assigned to each node (shared IPv6 space).
    If you need more than 1 IP, no problem – just ask for additional IPv6 addresses and they will be assigned.

    About e-mail ordering, we like to have personal/direct contact with all our clients. A lot of NL companies are doing also business via e-mail, so we are not the only one ;-)
    With automatic systems you get things like “What is your client number”, we like to avoid that.
    I really don’t see why e-mail ordering is an issue?

    FreeBSD is possible. If needed you have the possibility to do the complete installation yourself.
    Payments via PayPal are possible!

    @Liteserver:

    1. Do your VPS VMs support tun/tap?
    2. For a foreigner, will the VAT apply? As a non-Dutch national do I need to pay that 19% tax?
    3. Can I get a 100 mb file for checking the bandwidth? latency seems to be fine.

    Using their vps for several months, there was only one reboot. Network is fast and stable.
    Ordering by email might seem inconvenient at first, but emails are answered much faster than on most other vps providers other there.

    @Liteserver:
    Is offer only for new clients? ;)

  14. Without ticketing system (WHMCS), how can you handle billing,termination, etc?

  15. The less paid application running, the less price applicable !

  16. Due the high demand we decided to keep this offer valid till the end of February (28-02-2011)!

    It’s still possible to order one of these VPSes with 50% lifetime discount.

    We signed up 3 weeks ago. Nice thing is that you don’t need domain name so if you need for example a file server this is good. Or maybe you need a private site without domain name.

    Uptime is 100% since signup. Owner responds to emails and explains well to questions.

      I would like to add, is there another vps host that don’t need domain name? We would like to synchronize our files.

        None of the VPSes I had ever “needed” a domain name.
        Most likely you simply don’t understand that you can enter whatever you want into the hostname field when ordering.
        After you order, they just give you the VPS IP address. The “domain” you entered or not, is not used anywhere.
        It is the same for 99% of providers, i.e. those which use WHMCS+SolusVM.

      • Yeah, at the start I thought the same. but now I learned that I can put any crap in that forms xD

    Is your TUN/TAP enabled by default?

    November 27, 2011 @ 8:33 am | Reply
    • Yes, TUN/TAP is enabled by default.
      We’re using Xen HVM so each VPS has it’s own dedicated resources and OS.
