Tags: , , , , , , , Date/Time: August 10, 2016 @ 1:53 pm, by IThinkUFailed

Favyen from Luna Node sent us over a fantastic offer recently and we’ve heard great things about them in the past and I’m sure they won’t disappoint this time round either. They’re a registered company in British Columbia (Registration # 812782639BC0001) and are coming up for 3 years this month and with that they have offered a very unique account credit promotion which is exclusive to LowEndBox.

They offer lots of great features such as uploading your own ISO or qcow2 template, snapshots, startup scripts, floating IPs and advanced DNS hosting.  Check out their features page to learn more on all the cool features that they have.

This offer is available to all new and existing customers and no promotional code is required. On your initial deposit (or next deposit for you existing customers) they will double whatever you deposit up to a maximum value of $25. There is however a minimum deposit of $10 for new customers. They have informed us that this double credit offer will be active for at least 14 days so there is plenty of time to take advantage of this.

They accept the following payment methods: Credit Card, Interac e-Transfer, Bitcoin and of course, PayPal.

As always we encourage all users to read their Terms of Service prior to sign up.

      The 512 MB plan (which is SSD-cached) has always been $3.6/mo (billed hourly).

    Wow, I want to get back to them again, But, I still have credit at DO. My experience with them so far is really really good. Their support is really fast, when I asked something they replied within minutes. The double credit for existing customer is what I appreciated, but I have a question regarding to this. Is the double credit has an expired date?

    • While I have not been with them long (I initially learned about them right here at LEB) the first time I signed in and saw their control panel gui and and build options, which include the option to use any Linux ISO you want rather than just pre-rolled images, I was impressed right away.

      They’re very cost effective with great options and flexibility. I had accidentally let my account balance get too low and this offer is a great reason to renew and roll out a nice new server build.

    I’ve got nothing but good things to say about LunaNode. Been with them for more than a year after coming from various providers that I was never quite satisfied with due to one reason or another. Their prices are reasonable, their control panel is very flexible, and their support is great. The only downtime I’ve had has been due to upstream issues with OVH but that’s gotten much, much better now.

      That’s great to hear! We’re constantly hearing praises for the services and support they offer so I’m really pleased to find that nothing has changed in that department.

      • I’ve been with Lunanode 9 months & had no problems at all. The service is great value & support on the odd occasion I needed it was also very good.

    Does LunaNode charge for stopped VM instances??

    August 13, 2016 @ 4:35 pm | Reply
    • perennate:

      Yes, if you shutdown the VM it will not be de-allocated, so you will still be charged for the VM plan. You can decrease costs by snapshotting the VM and disassociating its floating IP address; when you need to activate the VM again, you can provision it again from the snapshot and using the same floating IP. Note that you will still be charged for the storage cost and the IP address cost, the only way to be charged nothing is to delete the VM completely, this is the same as for other cloud providers.

    Want to run mail server, can you do reverse pointer record. I see nothing for this on dashboard.

      Go to Floating IPs or VM -> rDNS tab.

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.
