    “Bandwidth 0 KB of 1 TB Used / 1 TB Free”, should be 2TB

      Very sorry about that, if you want to submit a ticket I will fix that for you.

    Offer #2 doesn’t actually have a yearly option available on the order page. Also, it is not obvious if we can bring our own ISOs.

    • HiFormance-Kyle:

      Hey Matt,

      I did update your ticket and added a custom yearly package for you! I just didn’t think LowEndBox allowed new businesses to offer the yearly plan.

      We do allow custom ISO’s, just submit a ticket and we will mount it for you.

      September 8, 2017 @ 5:40 pm | Reply
    • Matt:

      Kyle added the yearly option when I asked and confirmed being able to use a custom ISO.

      Now comes the challenge of paying with credit card without linking my PayPal account… I’ve learned not to use PayPal for hosting…

      Hello Lucas,

      Thank you for bringing that to our attention. This has been updated to 2TB on the order form.

        Can you do 100Mbps unmetered?

  6. I’ve signed up with HiFormance about a week ago and I was surprised by how good the servers are and the friendliness of the staff. I’ve tried other hosts but this one is one I can really stick with for a long time.

  9. Jason lack:

    Can you explain more about Windows free trial in this offer https://my.hiformance.com/cart.php?a=confproduct&i=0

    Is it for 3$ ?

    September 9, 2017 @ 8:31 am | Reply
    • HiFormance-Kyle:

      Hey Jason,

      The VPS is for $3.00, the Windows Server Trial is only a trial license and if you wish to go beyond the trial period with that operating system you would have to purchase a license for it.

      Hope this helps.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

      September 10, 2017 @ 7:43 am | Reply
      • Jason lack:

        yes, what is the difference between the trial and a licensed version except for the annoying message to purchase a license?

        September 10, 2017 @ 6:44 pm | Reply
        • HiFormance-Kyle:

          Hello Jason,

          Once the trial period expires there will be anonyances like you mentioned but also random shutdowns.

      Hello Jim,

      We have reached our maximum for the free upgrade.

      If you would like to contact me via live chat or email, I can build you a flexible plan that suites your needs & budget.

    Traffic Usage

    All account plans come with a predetermined amount of traffic allowance. We monitor all accounts and bill $1.00 for each gig of traffic exceeded. This amount is not prorated, meaning that 1 mb – 1 gig will be treated and billed as the same.

    TBH, this is the highest rate I have ever seen on provider.

    September 9, 2017 @ 12:37 pm | Reply
    • HiFormance-Kyle:


      Thank you for bringing that to our attention because it is most definitely a typo. The rate for overage billing is $0.09/gb and I have updated that on the page.

      September 10, 2017 @ 7:56 am | Reply
    • Lucas:

      I guess they typo about 1Gb for $1, may be 1Tb?

    • HiFormance-Kyle:


      Yes absolutely, we can mount Ubuntu 16 or 17 and install via VNC. We are in the process of added more updated operating systems to the order form.

        How does this work, do I select “Ubuntu 14.04” in the downdown and request in the comments that I want Ubuntu 17.04?

    I have got my first KVM from them. Till now, all the offers on LEB were attractive only in the OPEN VZ. The offers posted here are much better than most of the Open VZ offers. Kyle and Vee T were on support on Sunday. First time on the LEB community that I have experienced true 24 x 7 support. Kyle follows up on issues. So, you always have some one at hand.
    This experience was almost like fully managed. I had an issue with the disk size. This was immediately addressed. The VM does not allow you to directly change root password. It generates the password and sends you.
    The VM appeared a little slow. However, I am comparing with a Dedibox intel i7, Gigabit network card etc. So, am not judging just yet.
    About their custom plan – I was very happy with the prompt help received. I was surprised that on the chat, the team set up the deal I desired.
    My summary:
    1) Clean OS template list with desktop versions
    2) Fast, Responsive support who understand
    3) Value for money – KVM at the price of Open VZ (with SSD, instead of HDD)
    4) Felt like fully managed server

      *Correction – The password is displayed only once. Not sent as mentioned above by me earlier.
      No storage of passwords is a good way security of your data is ensured

      After a month of usage:
      The VPS has been rock solid. I used PHP 7.2 on Ubuntu for my Moodle site. Moodle is not fully compliant to 7.2. The performance seemed terrible. After going back to 7.1, I am finding it WOW.

      I can confidently say that Kyle and his team are doing an excellent work. Support has been 24 x 7. Tickets have been replied

    Hello everyone,

    Just a quick update, due to the high traffic of orders our Utah location has sold out for the time being. We have just deployed Dallas and we are accepting orders for the plans mentioned above.

    We have Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York almost ready and should be online at the start of next week.

    We thank everyone for your support and we value your business! :)

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.
