    Huge props to their customer service. Had a few questions I needed clarified before ordering and got a response in 8 MINUTES!

    We are now testing the VPS before migrating our other 150 instances with Vultr. Half of that migration won’t be fun on my side as some of them are on DirectAdmin and some even without a control panel but it’s worth the cost savings.

    Interesting reseller offers – pretty good value as it comes with a dedicated IP. Do y’all optimize your servers with CloudLinux?

    August 23, 2018 @ 2:57 pm | Reply
    • Yes we run our reseller hosting servers with CloudLinux to provide optimized and quick performance for everyone. We also use LiteSpeed Web Server to greatly increase performance.

    Got a 4 GB KVM plan since I plan on running some applications within dockerized environments. So far so good, and the ping times to where I’m at (michigan) is very good.

    First impression 10/10, but will update every two weeks with my experience. Thank you LEB!

    I just purchased a small shared hosting to use the email option for a domain of mine.
    The problem is the DNS is all over the place and not set up at all correctly on the shared hosting option.
    I’ve pinged the CS but we’ll see how it goes.

    August 24, 2018 @ 11:41 am | Reply
    • I heard this was all resolved for you, we just had to enable a feature in cPanel for you to be able to manage your DNS. This has also been corrected globally. Thank you and please feel free to contact us if you need anything else, we are available 24×7.

    I’m getting only about 1-2MB per second on the Chicago network test. Anyone else having a better experience?

    • Albert:

      Yea, I have a Chicago VPS. I think their actual servers are faster than the test servers (understandably). I will run a benchmark for you on my server now.

      August 24, 2018 @ 3:06 pm | Reply
    • Ccin, Our file test servers are on a separated network in the datacenter to avoid saturation to the main network. Speeds will fluctuate on the test server, based on the amount of users testing and pulling downloads. It is only meant to give you a generic idea. Our network in Chicago consists of GTT and SCNET in the network blend.

      Thank you for sharing the benchmark Albert.

      Also we have a 48 hour money back guarantee if you’d like to try out our VPS for yourself :-)

    Tried to get OVZ server to use it as VPN. Ping from Europe is 200ms average, speed is limited by my ISP rate plan, so everything’s pretty good and fast.

    However, they’re based on OVH (at least IP detected as OVH server), so if you’re going to use this server as VPN, probably it’s not the best solution cause many service are banning OVH addresses.

    • Tak, I believe I answered your email about this the other day but just so everyone has the information too, yes our shared/reseller hosting servers are under always-on DDoS protection of 10Gbps spec, with additional capacity available on-demand if needed.

    Be aware that they kill processes with certain names on their OpenVZ boxes:

    root@box:/tmp# cp /bin/bash transmission-daemon
    root@box:/tmp# ./transmission-daemon
    root@box:/tmp# Killed

    Their ToS only prohibits copyright infringement, but they proactively kill transmission…

    • While torrents are not allowed on our OpenVZ VPS, they are allowed on our KVM VPS plans here. Feel free to contact us and we can assist you in transitioning you over to a KVM VPS.

    ON the KVM 4GB how much would it cost to increase the ssd to 100gb? I am looking to design a 1 click deployment for https://github.com/btcpayserver/btcpayserver-docker. There is high demand for this Bitpay free, decentralized alternative.

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.
