NetOrigin Shaun from NetOrigin notified me their latest special, which has more detail on this WHT offer post. Coupon code 25discount gives you 25% off recurring discount on their Los Angeles OpenVZ VPS plans. “VPSOne” would be AUD$5.96/month (~USD$6.31) after the discount. Direct link for signing up, and here is the VPS you are going to get

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 50GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • 4 vCPU
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

PayPal, Moneybookers or direct transfer for AU banks. Servers in Los Angeles but NetOrigin is based in Perth, Australia. According to their contact page they provide 24/7 email support and phone support during Australian business hours. They have been around since 2010, with Shaun as the “sole trader”. Not registered for “GST” according to ABN lookup so could be a small operation, which seems to be inconsistent with Shaun’s claim here.

They have a long list of AUP so make sure you agree with them before you sign up.

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.

  1. It’s always nice to see local (on the continental level :P) providers here, now, if only we could get this sort of deal in Australia :\

  2. Does anyone check if AUD$5.96 ~ USD$6.31, I do not think 911 makes that much change.

  3. Reading the AUP and right off the bat, I don’t like the “cooperate with … injured third parties” clause. The file trading “situation” is a prime example of why this is a bad idea. We have law firms who, due to their claiming that they’re the copyright holder on some media, are pressing payment requests when they think they catch some bit torrent users downloading their media. (That’s the first link that i can find right off that sort of explains the situation. I hope it’s understandable.) I’m not saying that these folks would allow bit torrent (assuming that they’re not since LEA says they have a lengthy AUP.) this is a perfect example of where their AUP may allow them to bypass legal and accepted procedures.

    Especially since the term “civil wrongdoing” is in there as well.

    Or another example. Say LEB was hosted there and I don’t like someone’s comment here. Per their AUP, I could get that person’s email and IP addresses directly from them.

    I’m not reading any further. Their AUP is unacceptable.

    • Hi drmike,

      I think there is a misconception about the AUP.

      “Or another example. Say LEB was hosted there and I don’t like someone’s comment here. Per their AUP, I could get that person’s email and IP addresses directly from them.”

      In such situation, we would not disclose such information without a court order. We will never bypass legal procedures.

      Regards,

      Louis
