Tags: , , Date/Time: March 13, 2011 @ 10:08 am, by LowEndAdmin

LoveVPS Matthew introduced himself as “24-year-old living in UK” and “founder of LoveVPS“. They are having a special this month, reducing the previously $10/month “VPS #1” package to $7/month. Here is the direct link to purchase it, and here is the spec:

  • 512MB memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in Scranton with BurstNet, which means they might be IPv6 ready. They are also “upholding a strong no-overselling policy”. Their are now proxy behind CloudFlare which solves their NS redundancy issue and potential DDoS threat. However that also means their order form is HTTP-only, i.e. no SSL protection. New business (since Jan 2011).

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.

    CloudFlare does not mean no SSL ;)
    Just 20$ per month to hide your real IPv4 I do think it worth :)

        Free reverse-proxy delivered by global “nodes” which is determined by GeoDNS backend.

          Imagine I’m a stupid user. I navigated to LoveVPS.com . Since the domain is resolved by CloudFlare’s authoritive DNS, CloudFlare’s GeoDNS module detect my recurrsive DNS’ location and returned a IP with CloudFlare’s nearest node. The node then serve as a reverse-proxy and returned LoveVPS’ content to me.

          Reverse proxy does not mean caching.

    • Okay didnt realise that SSL is an option for their Pro account. SSL certificate would be bound to a dedicated IP in this case, wouldn’t it?

  3. No overselling and 500 gigs of transfer? Something isn;t right there.

      They have unmetered 100mbps bandwidth.

      • That’s called oversold bandwidth from their upstream provider.

    Website Offline
    Sorry but the site you are trying to access is currently offline or not accepting connections. The most likely causes are that server is down for maintenance, there may be a network problem, or the site may be experiencing excessive load.

    If you continue to receive this error after you believe the site is back online, you may contact CloudFlare support.

    • Hello, I am unsure why this has happened may be an issue on cloudflare’s end or you may have been blocked as bad trafic. Try sending us an email at sales [a t] lovevps [.] com with your IP and we will trace this issue for you.

    • Hello,

      I am not sure why this has happened for you, please send me a email with your IP and I will see if you got caught up in cloudflare.

      My email is matthew [a t] lovevps [ d o t ] com

  5. We Now only have 3 VPS #1’s left order soon to avoid disappointment.

  6. When I tried to access the website directly, I was redirected to an “Access Restricted” page with google adds and I have to fill a captcha field before I can access the site.

    However, when I use a proxy or TOR, I don’t get any restriction. So I guess there is a restriction that only applies to certain countries.

    It really ain’t a love song.

  7. Hmmm, got me curious now. From my North Carolina IP address, I get in fine. (This is the library that seems to block everything but the pron sites that they should be blocking.)

    Ditto from my proxy VPS in Germany.

    Where are the rest of you coming in from and being blocked? Might be helpful to state so that can see if this is supposed to be this way.

    We will also be provisioning Xen PV Servers on the new servers. OpenVZ will still be available.
