LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Newwebsite – $6.95 512MB OpenVZ/Xen VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: November 22, 2010 @ 12:27 am, by LowEndAdmin

Newwebsite Via this WHT offer. It seems that Newwebsite has updated its low end Xen packages. For $6.95/month, rather than “just” 256MB of memory a few months ago, now you can get 512MB! Use this link to sign up, and here is the full spec:

  • 512MB memory/512MB swap (or 512MB guaranteed with no burstable for OpenVZ)
  • 25GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • Free DirectAdmin

Servers are with OnePartner in Duffield VA. They seem to have been in business for many years — domain registered since 1997 and they have been in hosting for over 10 years. Do read through other reports from our previous mentions on this provider.

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.

    Is really a good offer I think.

    Will be good to know the node specs…

    It seems you have access to 8 cores o_O and you can get more storage cheap (25GB x 1 USD).

    And some test IP…well, in WHT says test file is in their website, then:

    Test IP: 74.117.232.22

    About the network, I get like 1.3-1.5MB/s from http://www.newwebsite.com/100MB.zip

    they tell everyone all vps on 100 Mbps, but the server speed really-really slow, never get more than 1 Mbps. Look at WHT thread they dont answer when people asking about their speed :)

      I was previously on one of these months and months ago and i had the same issue. They claimed they had plenty of excess capacity and nothing was capped. Whatever.

        In my case, more than high network speed, I’m interested in the processor speed, is the only thing I need for my services xD

        I want to try this company, but…7 USD is a lot xD

        Same issue, I had to ask for a refund as speeds where as low as 50KB when they posted that offer on WHT and they claimed it was 100mbps port, but others also noticed how poor it was, also I remember doing a benchmark and it was below average on compared to other 512mb tests that I had made.

        Right now I did a test on there file and got 1.4MB-1.7MB(max out of 2MB). Maybe they have improved? Or maybe it’s temporary? :D Well good luck to anyone who is willing to give them a try. The offer is surely nice and I’m sure it will be better then some virpus (they are most lowest provider I have seen where people are reporting 20KB speeds even in the states).

  6. I had a box with newwebsite for a few months. The node was quite stable although I did have some intermittent network slowness. Overall not a bad deal if you need DirectAdmin w/ your VPS

    I had a VPS with them for some months. Their prices are great for a Xen VPS with DirectAdmin. I had problems with the speed to Europe so I moved away. But in these month they were very stable.

        • MaxMind called 2 times and successfully played the code and you never responded with the code number they played. I do not see how you can claim bad support when you were never a customer.

        • Like I said before your phone number was successfully called 2 times and the code played. But this is not really the place to discuss this issue. I will reply to the ticket.

  9. I got one of these servers. They set me up incredibly fast. They had my VPS setup and DirectAdmin and Softaculous installed in around an hour. The server has been great so far. Can’t say enough good things about them. And the datacenter they house the servers in is unmatched by any other. I highly recommend this deal.

  10. Here is the honest truth: we have a bandwidth cap of 35mbps. But we do not come close to reaching that cap on a regular basis. There may be very short bursts up to that speed but there is no sense is paying for more than we need. Here is a link to the mrtg graph http://www.newwebsite.com/mrtg/74.117.232.40_26.html
    This is the main switch that all the traffic flows through. We are considering buying more if needed. The 35mbps cap can easily change.

    Signed up 2 days ago. No VPS set up. Not room on the server according to them.

  14. We normally do not have this many people signup at once. This is also a holiday week so we cannot get servers shipped but so fast.

    @James we do not have a James that has signed up recently. Is the account under a different name?

  19. Just setup my first VPS box with newwebsite. I beefed up the 6.95 plan and doubled the memory. From payment to live account was about 7-8 hours. Speed has been good and no downtime. Tickets have been answered in reasonable time. I don’t think this is a 24/7 operation, but hey what do you expect for this kind of price. I am very happy with the Xen box and I got FREE DirectAdmin on top of it. I’ll let you know more when I have a few months on the account.

    I don’t think advertising with 100Mbit while it’s really 35Mbit is a good thing.

      That is why we do not do that, at least not to my knowledge. If you have seen where we do that please let me know so I can change it.
