Takes PayPal or credit card. Servers with Waveform Technology in Troy MI (test IP: 208.92.223.106). Domain registered in 2009 to Magoro LLC in Detroit. We’ve actually posted quite a few offers from them before with no overwhelming responses. Nor can I find much review on WHT. I guess their plans are probably just, hmm, ordinary?

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. Love to try, though the bandwidth cap seems to be too small.

    • How much bandwidth do you use each month? Most people I ask cannot answer such a simple question

        My usage? Easy:

            month        rx      |     tx      |    total    |   avg. rate
         ------------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------
           Jun '11      1.11 GiB |    7.27 GiB |    8.38 GiB |   27.13 kbit/s
           Jul '11      2.39 GiB |    2.59 GiB |    4.99 GiB |   15.62 kbit/s
        

        And yes, 100 GB per month is way too small.

        The minimum amount for me to even start considering a plan is 250 GB, and to feel enough headroom that will need to be 500GB. If a provider does not want to give a larger allocation, I’d suggest to at least make it “100 GB at 1Gbps, then 10 Mbps unmetered till the end of month”. I do not want to have my VPS turned off just because I posted a large file and a bunch of people have downloaded it. Nor do I want to pay $1/GB or some other ridiculous amount for “overuse”.

          Your average consumption is about 6,7 GB per month according to the stats you privided. How can 110GB/Month be not enough for you? Additionally you have to consider that bandwidth does indeed cost money. So when a provider does a calculation he calculates an estimated usage. This then makes a large portion of the monthly price. If you want unmetered bandwidth with a 1ooMBit/s connection you are quite above a LEB.

          1) It may be enough *today*, however I don’t know what can happen tomorrow.
          2) I do not want to be wary of uploading a 100 MB file in fear of stepping over the measly 100GB limit, I do not want to be having to limit myself also *here*, there are enough places in life already where we have to count consumption/minutes/megabytes/watts/liters/gallons.
          3) 500GB is perceived as being enough not just for today but also for tomorrow, with all potential force-majeures summed in (like posting to Slashdot or me making my own 700MB GNU/Linux ISO).
          4) there’s a *lot* of LEB providers giving 500GB or 1000GB (and even 1000GB@1GBit+10Mbps unmetered afterwards, like one VPS I have currently) – so why settle for less?

  2. On sites, I get to spend around 10GB plus, though I’m planing to host some files for a game that we’re currently making so I assume that it will use *much* bandwidth

    The $6.27 plan turns out to only be 5.7 cents per gigabyte and includes the server. For what it is worth, we charge $0.20 overage charge per gigabyte over your allotment or $0.10 per gigabyte if you add bandwidth ahead of time.

    I’ve had a VPS from Magoro since March and have been very happy with their service and stability. Very good uptime. This is a great VPS.
