LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Neosurge – $6.25 128MB Xen VPS

Tags: , , , Date/Time: August 5, 2010 @ 1:37 am, by LowEndAdmin

Neosurge Via this WHT offer. It has been a while since I posted about Neosurge’s offer — more than a year actually. The pricing has not really changed nor has the spec. It is still $6.25/month after the 10% off recurring discount promo code wht2010. The package you get has

  • 128MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 200Gb/month data transfer
  • Xen

On the order page you can specify whether you want to order it in Chicago IL (with Steadfast network I believe) and Fremont (Hurrican Electric?). They have also been a long time LowEndBox sponsor with their ads purchase. They have been in business since 2002 so it looks like they are here for the long haul.

Anyone else has experience with Neosurge?

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.

    I had a VPS with Neosurge a couple of years ago. It was solid.

    I had a VPS with them, the cheapest one. The VPS was EXTREMELY slow (maybe an oversold box). I canceled by their control panel, yet they still kept charging me via PayPal. I should have known and canceled the paypal subscription the same day.

  4. Sam,

    I find your statements very curious, as I cannot find a customer under your name that had ordered VPS services.

    1) We do not oversell our services, in fact it is impossible with xen based hosting. We use latest generation Xeon CPU’s with raid10 raid edition hard drives. There are almost zero complaints about speed from our services.

    2) We instruct all customers at time of cancellation to cancel their paypal subscriptions as well. All paypal disputes are handled promptly as well, so there is no way that you were overcharged for anything.

    The thread on WHT was obviously untrue, as we have not gone out of business and that was almost a year ago made by someone spreading misinformation. We sold off our dedicated and colocation services in order to focus solely on VPS hosting.

    Brian,

    What you say or not, the service provided was terrible. I find it very hard to believe that you have never had a customer with my name “Sam(uel)”.

    In regards to selling off dedicated/colo services, why have you only just recently updated your website to reflect these changes when that thread was from over 9 months ago?

  6. Again, I’ve looked through and cannot find any records in your name but I’ll take your word for it. We’ve been working hard to improve customer service and the speed of everything. Perhaps it was a networking issue or something else causing the problems. In any case, I’m sorry that you had a bad experience.

    The sale didn’t happen until earlier this year and it took a couple months to get the new site online. We do not simply use pre-made templates and it took a while to work with the design team and get everything 100% ready. During that time, we were referring business to the party that purchased those divisions of our company.

    Good to hear that you’re improving, maybe soon I will try NeoSurge again.

    Great to see that you have updated your ToS to not be so restrictive (allowing IRC chit chat) :)

    It is very easily possible to oversell anything with xen, it is not IMPOSSIBLE.

  9. It may be possible, but we do not over commit ram and keep disk I/O available for all users. We’ve gone to careful lengths to choose proper hardware to ensure that it works with our offerings so that there are plenty of resources for all.

    Comparatively speaking to openVZ, xen has superior resource isolation and less issues due to server overcrowding.
