meanservers-2015-05-24Mean Servers has sent in several LET exclusive offers to us, available in both Los Angeles and Denver. According to David these are exclusive to LowEndBox and LowEndTalk. As our first resident host, these offers should be considered safe for production usage!

Unmanaged 128MB LET Exclusive
Limited Quantity

  • 128MB RAM
  • 1x CPU core
  • 10GB SAS disk space
  • 75GB transfer
  • 1x IPv4
  • /64 IPv6
  • KVM/SolusVM
  • $15/year
  • Order here

The above is just a taste of what they’ve got; for more offers click ‘Read more’!

Mean Servers is a registered company in Colorado, where they also have an office, and the company is in ‘Good Standing’ – if that’s an official term. Their domain has been registered since April 2014 and they launched in August 2014, and even though they’re fairly young they have established a decent business in just over a year seemingly without having to do anything crazy. They offer 24/7 ticket support, with live chat and phone support available during business hours (9AM – 5PM Denver time). Put that on top of their 99.99% uptime guarantee covered by their Service Level Agreement and you should be covered for both personal and business needs.

Reviews on their last offer were either sketchy, answered, or positive. One user mentioned a $150 fee in case of severe abuse to the host node – be sure to read up the details on that. We also look forward to hearing your reviews now!

Their offers run on HP or Super Micro servers, all owned by them, which is located in either ViaWest in Denver or Psychz in Los Angeles. They never oversell their hardware and have enough capacity available to honor your upgrade requests (within reason that is) within 15 minutes. All nodes have a 10Gbps connection and feature native IPv4 and IPv6. Unfortunately we don’t know the details on the hardware in the servers, but I’m pretty sure someone from Mean Servers is willing to provide an insight into this when requested. A list of the available ISOs can be found in their knowledge base.

Here’s the other three offers we were sent:

    I’ve had one of those 128MB in Denver for more than a year. Great server, very reliable, never had a problem with it.

    Keep up the good work!

    This seems like a pretty good deal. Just signed up and the set up was instant. Furthermore there seems to be a promotion going on where for another $2 you can double memory (or bandwidth or disk), although you can only use that $2 in one of them, not all.

      Forgot to say, this was my experience with the Unmanaged 1GB. I used the $2 special to double the ram to 2GB.

    I do wonder if the LA location is safe. You know that area is known for earthquakes.

    I had trouble with the root password that they sent. I contacted support and they told me it was fine. So I tried again and it still did not work. I contacted support again and their resolution was to ban my ip from their support website and then refund my money.

    Be careful with these guys. I’m not sure what the deal is over there but I’ll never get another server from them. Worst customer service ever.
