LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

LoveVPS – $12/Quarter 128MB Xen VPS in Orlando

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 10, 2011 @ 10:46 am, by LowEndAdmin

LoveVPS Matthew from LoveVPS must have emailed me this > a month ago. This is a follow up from their previous Scranton 512MB Xen offer. Matt mentioned that they have moved into a more expensive DC in Orlando, i.e. HostDime/DimeNOC. That means less profit margin, as they have kept the pricing the same. I do hope that they have kept the budget in check to avoid anything catastrophic :) Two offers:

  • 128MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • $12/Quarter (Sign up link)
  • 512MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • $7/Month (Sign up link)

Currently servers in Orlando are leased, but they will be moving some colo servers from BurstNET to HostDime. LoveVPS is founded by Matthew from UK in January 2011, and got a praise from another Florida provider. They had some hardware issue resulting downtime last month but has now planned some kind of DR solution to keep their site sync’ed on two locations for fail-over.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  1. Wow, the 128MB offer is cool. The only issue that I see is, they accept only paypal, with the support in ticket to see if there are other payment options available

      Why would that be a problem, you have a paypal account :) I guess less than 1% of the total adult population of the world is in countries not supported by paypal.

      • We started offering google checkout to customers because there are quite a few in foreign countries that have that issue. I would suggest it to you.

      • @rds100 I disagree, any stats to back your comment?

          No stats, just this list: https://www.paypal.com/worldwide/
          I can’t really find out which countries are missing from this list, but the list is huge and at first glance i can’t find any of the big countries missing (and many small countries are in there too).
          Do you know which countries are not supported by paypal?

        • Most of the middle Asian counties and Arab countries do not have access to Paypal. While I do have business running via my Paypal (business account registered under Wales; hence accessible in this part of the world) and I do have funds in it but if I want to stick with a provider I do expect at least two payment options open (Credit Card and Paypal).

          Anyway, its a very good offer to pass on.

          Indeed, you are right, i didn’t know so many countries are missing from paypal.
          Do you know which are the popular payment options for countries not supported by paypal? Alertpay? Moneybookers? 2Checkout?

        • 2CO is the most popular because it charges in USD and is VerifiedbyVisa and MasterCard SecureCode enabled. It also gives seller and buyer protection (which is great too).

          MoneyBookers is also a popular payment option BUT the fact that it charges in GBP and most banks in Asia charge an inflated GBP to USD conversion (goes up from the normal 1.64 ratio to as much as 1.8)

          AlertPay comes least and its more popular in China and some other smaller countries

  2. Thanks for the listing. Yes our main corporate site did have some hardware issue, but it is kept on separate servers to our customers so customers services where not effected.

      Even though you may be a regular visitor but using your website name to comment is cheap way to get traffic

        That’s probably because they use CloudFlare.

    • IPv6 in the HostDime location is coming shortly.
