NWA Bytes Via this WHT offer. NWA Bytes is currently offering 20% off life-time discount on all their VPS packages, when you use the promo code 20off. Two VPS packages from them would fit in my listing criteria, and the more expensive one, “NWA-VPS2”, would be $6.39/month after the discount. Ordering link.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 25GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Their data center is located in Salt Lake City in Utah. The IP address of their website does resolve to CogentCo and Insta VPS so it’s possible NWA Bytes is reselling their service. After all they are running a business on a 3 day old domain on a non-functional website with lots of links are missing. Interestingly though, that their Twitter account has been around since June 2009 — same name as the guy who registered the domain, but points to .com instead of .net. If you then go to the .com site — it’s just nothing but a spam blog. I guess “Kevin” might have lost the domain (forgot to renew, d’oh!) and is now trying to quickly re-establish the business on the .net domain.

If it is indeed the case, you’ll hope that he would not forget renewing the servers that run all the VPS :)

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.

      • The conspiracy theory is that Kevin (registrant of the domain) lost the .com version so quickly set up the .net version without the actual website.

    • As noted in the original post at WHT “A special page has been setup as we are designing a new site for NWA Bytes”. The site was under maintenance.

      A domain squatter did grabbed the .com. My mistake for over looking the expiration.

      Nwahosting was the original name, extending the services i renamed to Nwabytes. From 2005 to present I have provide hosting services.
