NQHost – $15/Quarter 128MB Xen VPS in Dallas

Tags: , , Date/Time: October 16, 2011 @ 11:03 am, by LowEndAdmin

NQHost Julie from NQHost has sent me their new Xen offer in a new location. It’s Dallas TX this time with SoftLayer (test IP: For $15/Quarter you get

  • 128MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100Mbps shared port unmetered bandwidth
  • 1x IPv4 and IPv6 on request
  • Xen/SolusVM

Direct sign up link. So it’s a bit low on resource, but in return you get unmetered bandwidth in a premium DC. NQHost has been around since February 2010, is part of Dolorem Ipsum, s.r.o in Czech Republic, and have other unmetered Xen servers in Germany and Russia.

    Shared port unmetered bandwidth? That sounds like a receipt for massive congestion.

    • Just 10GB and 128MB RAM, I don’t think so

        Use your imagination– you don’t need much ram for static file hosting and 10GB d/l’d by enough people adds up after a while. :)

        • Yes I know, but I guess is less probable getting abuser in these 128MB boxes, than some 512MB with 50GB boxes and this unmetered port

  3. Low resources and still good for VPN tunneling though.

      Do you have actual measurements? This looks really interesting for a cross-atlantic VPN, but I’m afraid the link will be to slow for video streaming.

    I ordered a vps , exactly for the VPN and watching hulu. No Problem so far.
    Cachefly test tells me that i’m on 1Gbps connection (about 40MB/s).
    I’m Watching Hulu, (360p resolution ) , everything is OK.

    dd test is around 50MB/s , so it’s in the middle range. (actually i don’t care about it , because i don’t need that). CPU is 1 core Xeon 3460.

    Finally, as default there is no IPv6. You have to request it. After receiving welcome email, i requested assigning IPv6 and they asked to recreate the vps on another node (they said it’s faster), i accepted that and in 5 minutes i received new vps information (new VPS IP,.. etc).

    I had 2 or 3 tickets .I received the response with in 5 minutes.This is super fast.

    I recommend them also, have been working with them for a long time now (2010), and they are ok, also response time to tickets is fast

    Just signed up for this to use as a VPN, seems to be working great so far!

    For those interested, I installed Debian 6 32bit, then ran the “put dispener here” script I found via google, only change is I had to run “apt-get install openvpn” before running the script. Up and running in about 15min!

    A quick review. The servers are located in Dallas, Softlayer, which is great for me to set up a backup site. 1000M port, unlimited price, I love your service. The only requirement for them is to have more interaction with LEB comments.

    I’ve got four VPS’ at three locations (Moscow, Dallas, Phoenix) from NQHost, all with 10mbit unmetered. I’ve been with them for about 3 months now. They all consistently out-perform my expectations in terms of network speed. The only one which ever experiences occasional downtime is the Moscow host, but it’s network-related, not system downtime, and a ocean/continent away from me, so that isn’t surprising, nor is it frequent (maybe 15 minutes per week total, on average).

    I’d stay away from NQHost. I signed up for a VPS and after about a 12 hour wait, I asked for an order status update. A few minutes later I got a response that they were cancelling my order because it didn’t pass their fraud detection. Kind of lame, they didn’t even ask me to back up that I was who I said I was. No questions just cancel out my service. Of course the money hasn’t come back into my Paypal account yet. Who knows if it ever will. I just don’t appreciate Pavel and NQHost calling me a fraud, especially since they are the ones who have my money….and haven’t provided the service….if anything I feel like NQHost has defrauded me.

    I have the Germany VPS with them… has an extremely slow disk performance. I don’t want to bother testing, because even “apt-get upgrade” takes 40 minutes to complete with just about 23 packages to be updated (minor small packages), and the previous “apt-get update” took 12 minutes to complete. I mean, how ridiculous is that???

    Oversold! Oversold!

    I posted a ticket to address this issue, and now, after more than 24 hours, still no solution. They said they’d create a new VPS on another node… How long do I have to wait?

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.
