LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

NBVPS – $3 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 29, 2011 @ 7:16 am, by LowEndAdmin

NBVPS Via this WHT offer. NBVPS is offering some pretty cheap OpenVZ VPS plans starting at $20/year for 128MB/180MB memory, 8GB storage and 100GB/month data transfer. One step up gets you “VPS256” at $3/month (first month $2.10 with promo code WHT30OFF). Here is the sign up link, and you get

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/Virtualizor

Payment available in either PayPal or Alipay (for Chinese customers I guess). Servers in Phoenix AZ with PhoenixNAP (test IP: 174.138.175.114). Quite a few fails on my standard test. No SSL on the ordering forms. ToS and AUP are invalid links on their home page. There appears to be a contact number on their Contact page, but I am not sure how valid it is.

Domain was registered 2 weeks ago by someone in Guang Dong, China, and it appears to be the English version of his NBVPS.com VPS business (website in Chinese).

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.

      • @CrazyFeng — took me a while to figure out what “NB” means. For those who are interested, here is the Wikipedia article on NB and the last entry:

        牛B (niúbī), a common word in Mandarin Chinese profanity

        Once you follow the link, it says

        niúbī (牛屄/牛逼) = f_____g awesome (literally “cow cunt”…)

        Okay. CowCuntVPS — that makes sense…

        • It has changed in chinese words, NB not means cow cunt but a word means good.

          August 30, 2011 @ 12:58 am | Reply
        • Yeah I know. That’s why Wikipedia highlighted that it literally means cow cunt, which implies the word itself means something else (F’ing Awesome in this case).

          Sorry I was just having fun learning new Chinese vocab.

        • NB,a new word popular on the Internet,is both a noun and an adjective…But we mainly use this word as an adjective,which means super and extraordinary.It is a commendatory term.What you get from wiki is its noun meaning.(original meaning)

          I’m happy that you are interested in Chinese culture.

        • @LowEndAdmin haha!! well in Singapore we use NB for abbrev in our convo with the chinese guys here as NaBey. N its being used regularly especially among the street gangs when they converse loudly in the public.

    for the english speakers: you may want to check out his post history on WHT

    he got kicked out of like 3 or 4 hosts, and immediately bitched up a storm purely because he was intentionally using it for warez hosting/being the target of a lot of ddos

    then asking why he got booted, and something something legal action something refund something

  13. Do not buy it!:

    Everyone should know, nbvps is a liar.

    Nbvps has an taobao shop, like ebay.com. They have too many bad reviews.

    The nbvps.com deceived many Chinese people. Some people buy their vps, but they found, The vps unable to work. And no one to deal with the problem.

    Now nbvps.net ready to deceive customers around the world. Because in China, everyone knows them, they can not continue to operate.

    Although nbvps owner is a students, but I think his character is poor. He only know the money, any customer is not important to him. He does not respect the customer.

      They probably got hacked by a former client who they screwed over. If they haven’t already been ToS’ed by PhoenixNAP that is.

  26. It’s a good news that nbvps offers to compensate his clients for another 2 months free service.
    Just 2 days before,directspace was down and my data(Portland node) was completely lost!No compensation..
    Compared with this,I prefer NB.
    Although I have never use the service provided by this company, I don’t know why there are so many people blacken his name by making bad comments on it.(They may have never used this company’s vps..)

    When looking at the comments this seems to be quite a mess and not a rock solid provider one should take into account when searching for a VPS. Maybe if you want to hack some minutes on a box but not for a durable amount of time.

  29. Thank you for everyone’s support. Yesterday our main website suffered a big DDos attack and back online after 2hours.We have add SSL in our whole website now. You can order our products safety and quickly.

    “NB” means very good in china, it just have almost the same pronunciation with( cow xxx). But many peopled use cow(N in china) to praise someone and use B(not cunt) to say somthing is positive, you can view the explain in china wiki with this link http://baike.baidu.com/view/54728.htm
    For some person of the same occupation misinterpret the meaning of nb, I really don not want to say more.
    Yesterday, our VPS suffered a big issue and we recoverd most of the data but on some VPS on node1 cannot be recovered. For the affected users, we have offered them 2 months VPS free of charge.
    Thanks for everyone’s support of NBVPS.NET. We promise we will always doing our best.

    First I want to tell you what the meaning “Kengdie” is in Chinese.”Kengdie” means make sb.be in trouble or cheat sb..

    This “Kengdie” oneman reseller is well known for cheating vps users in China.Now He has no space to cheat vps users in China any longer ,because everyone realized he is a liar and cheater. I suspect he is planning to cheat people from different countries and ruan away.

    I dare to say this “Kengdie” reseller will disappear from your sightes in three months.

    He is absolute a run away oneman and he just lost every data of his chinses customers.
    I don’t think anybody should trust NBVPS, seriously.
    And i think lowendbox should stop listing NBVPS because promoting NBVPS.net is just one of his marketing measures targeting to chinese. (Lowendbox.com is quite famous with chinese, but most of them don’t even understand english quite well.)
    The boss of NBVPS claimed that lowendbox.com list NBVPS.net because lowendadmin think NBVPS is a very good VPS provider. And of course because you don’t understand chinese so you are unable to know about this unless i tell you.

    So i think , don’t let this guy fool you, my dear lowendadmin. And list some creditable provider instead please.

    At last, NBVPS is just a joke, don’t take it seriously, and have fun.
