LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

LusoVPS – €1.80 128MB Xen VPS in France

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 13, 2011 @ 6:35 am, by LowEndAdmin

LusoVPS LusoVPS, as the name has suggested, is a Portuguese company that has just started out (domain registered in July 2011). With their coupon code 10OFF you get 10% off recurring discount (via this WHT offer), and their “VPS Starter” plan becomes €1.80/month (~USD$2.46). Here is the sign up link, and you get

  • 128MB memory/256MB swap
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer on 100Mbps
  • 2x 2.3GHz CPU
  • Xen/SolusVM

They accept either PayPal or AlertPay. Nice price for a low end Xen VPS. Servers with OVH in Paris, France. I guess you can use their website’s IP address (46.105.120.170) to do traceroute testing. Xen PV by default but you can also request a Xen HVM node. Nice looking jQuery-based website that still seems to have a few issues (clicking on VPS Starter Plan comes up with VPS Basic Plan, for example). AUP is also no where to be found.

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.

    Another template host, that’s double in 1 day, let’s see how long the kiddies will last with OVH’s new no setup fees.

  3. Thank you for the post, LEB.

    Hello Spo0lsh,

    We already support IPv6. On the next week, we are going to make an offer to include 1 million free IPv6 addresses on each VPS.

    Thank you!

      Who needs 1Mio. IPv6 on a VPS?

      • Hello Tom,

        1 Million is just a number. We have the IP addresses ready to deploy, so why not passing them to our customers?

        Thank you!

        • Because it’s a waste? Because if everybody did that, we’ll get into the same position we are currently in with ipv4?

          Wouldn’t that slow down the processor too considering it has to pay attention to all those addresses? And increase memory?

        • Hello,

          Again, 1 million is just a number. We are not going to setup 1 million ip addresses per VPS upon the delivery. We are going to make it available for a setup price per block. It doesn’t make sense to setup 1 million IP addresses at once, on a low end box, as stated before.

          Thank you!

          Filipe next time rather say some IPv6 subnet range instead “million addresses” and no one will complain :) Million sound so much.. from IPv4 perspective but infact it’s just part of a some smaller IPv6 subnet. Most people fail to realize that and still look at IPv6 same as at IPv4.

        • Yes, Spirit, that’s a nice suggestion.

        Why so much complications because some average IPv6 block? Just for the sake of complaining?

        Because if everybody did that, we’ll get into the same position we are currently in with ipv4

        That’s nonsense based on IPv4 perception. People should get rid of old IPv4 perception when they talk about IPv6.

        • Tom:

          Just to make it clear: IPv6 does not mean endless. It means when giving 1Mio. IPv6 to one single device we will in fact end up with the same situation we have now for about 4 bio. devices. End-to-end et al set besides. RIRs will never revoke. They did not with IPv4 and they will not with IPv6.

          …we will in fact end up with the same situation we have now for about 4 bio

          This of course isn’t realistic unless you’re looking in distance intergallactic future with colonies in entire universe but then IPv6 won’t be the solution anyway. As I said and I will repeat again looking at IPv6 from old IPv4 perspective wont bring you nowhere. Get rid of that.

          Or like Aaron at pthree.org said:

          If there are exactly 6.5 billion people on the planet, and each person lived in their own house, and each of house had 6.5 billion light switches (I think we’ve grossly overdone an even remotely accurate representation, no?), we would still have left over 340,282,366,920,938,463,421,124,607,431,768,211,456 addresses. Yeah- we’re barely scratching the surface with that one.

          While this “one million IPv6 addresses” concern here serve us for little bickering and arguing to spend some time… it’s nothing more than that.

          Some hosts give us /64 and no one complain. But when you hear word “million” you switch to old IPv4 perspective. Wrong!

          Example:
          A /64 contains 2^64 nodes or 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 IPv6 addresses.

          That’s IPv6 subnet which most of us have either from vps provider either from tunnel broker and it’s all perfectly fine, isn’t it? So lets argue a bit more regarding those “million” IPv6 addresses to spend some more of our free time…

          – RIRs assign ISPs at least a /32 prefix (enough for 65,500 business customers or at least 16 million home users);
          – ISPs assign their corporate customers with /48 subnets (giving each business 65,500 subnets to utilise throughout their organisation);
          – ISPs assign their home or small end users either /56 subnets (if under 256 subnets are required by the customer), or one /64 subnet (if the client does not require any further subnetting).
          – Each ISP, corporate client and end user will subnet their /48 or /56 prefix according to geographic region, department and end user, ensuring a true hierarchy of addressing and allowing efficient aggregation of address space throughout their organisation.
          – Each host will sit on a /64 subnet, no longer and no shorter.

          This subnetting policy is far more efficient than IPv4 and should keep the IPv6 routing table compact. It is anticipated that each ISP will have only one /32 prefix, making the global table small. In addition, each ISP’s internal routers are kept small since each of their corporate customers will have only a single /48 prefix. Home and small office users have the benefits of plenty of static IP addresses, eliminating problems often associated with dynamic IPs and use of Network Address Translation (NAT).

    • You are correct. I guess that WHMCS is going to charge 0.5€ per month, (1.8€*3 + 0.5€ on the first month) and then recurring 0.5€ per month. The addon is correctly configured. Of course we can manually override this.

      Thank you for your support, mrm20005. It means a lot to us.

    • Hello,

      At first, we were trying to focus our attention on dedicated servers in portugal. But the prices are way high, wich makes a low cost sale not viable.

      Nevertheless, we never stop searching for new servers, and new places to host our clients. One major problem in Portugal hosting, is the price per IP Address. Maybe when IPv6 is working 100%, we’ll get decent prices on that.

      Thank you!

          You should learn Portuguese correctly, before being a smart ass and telling others to learn it! “prontos” is not in the Portuguese Dictionary.
          As for speaking English like Daniel asked, please do so! Not everyone here speaks Portuguese, your question might be someone else’s question too. Why should we have the same question in two different languages in one discussion topic just because someone isn’t bothered to speak English?
          Wouldn’t it be cool if the Chinese for example starting asking questions in their own language and then you’d have to wait for an answer to a question, that has already been answered before, just because you can’t read it!

  24. Hey!
    I got a server from these guys and migrated a 500+ hits/day web here like a week ago and so far, it’s working like a charm :)
    Thanks for the great prices!

    I just ordered VPS from them.

    I’ll come back later with a review.
