Whilst the current port speed for these plans is 100Mbit, they will be upgraded to 1Gbit within a couple of weeks at no extra cost. IPv6 will be rolled out within a couple of weeks. Daniel has informed us that due to diplomatic tensions, they can’t provide services to Klingons ;)

Additional IPv4 addresses are $0.85 per month. VPN & torrents are allowed as long as it remains legal. Tor is not permitted. For more information, have a read of their Terms of Service.

  2. China Unicom’s access to this location is not so good.

  5. Great offer. I have known Daniel for a while and we talk almost daily, so I can safely say that this is not a summer host. Grab the offer while it’s still hot! :-)

      We all know he’s trustworthy but the possibility of him selling it is something else.

        Aslong the transfer is smooth, and doenst just drop it on like UrPad did with RootGeeks, I don’t see a problem, but yes, perfect summer host timing, and solo, makes it much more harder to manage.

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.
