LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

NetOrigin – AUD$6 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Los Angeles

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 17, 2011 @ 1:19 am, by LowEndAdmin

NetOrigin Spotted this offer somewhere — NetOrigin is currently doing a launch special on their Los Angeles VPS products. 50% off recurring discount when you use the promo code VPSLAUNCH. Their “VPSOne” product would be AUD$6/month after the discount (~$5.90 USD). Direct sign up link here.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 50GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • 2x IPv4 addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Generous disk space there. Los Angeles CA based servers. Net Origin is based in Perth Australia. That might mean non-Australians can get 10% less (they don’t have to pay GST, similar to VAT in EU), although the checkout form does not seem to update the final cost. Can’t really determine the creation date of the domain, although netorigin.(net|org) were both created in Oct 2010. Domain is registered to Shaun as a “sole trader”, although from a brief lookup on WebHostingTalk.com.au there seems to be multiple staffs working for Net Origin. Previous dealings include ConnextHosting.com.au (apparently sold to BurstNetworks) and ConnextNet.com (which got sold as well). We’ll see…

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.

  3. Hello everyone,

    Just to clarify things.

    ConnextHosting was run by Luke Conley in 2009. I was simply a system administrator for ConnextHosting back then. Times have very much changed. ConnextNet wasn’t run by Luke at all. I did own ConnextNet and I sold it due to other commitments.

    Net Origin isn’t going anywhere as we have a significant amount of capital invested. We have a team of staff members to assist customers so we definitely aren’t a one man run hosting provider.

    @TheLinuxBug: Please send us an email to sales [-at-] netorigin.com.au if you require a test IP and speedtest file.

    Best Regards,

    Shaun M
