    Not much bandwidth for that price also many now have 1Gbps. I think poor value for money.

    • It’s due to how close it is to London and the fact its actually in the UK bandwidth isn’t cheap.

  4. Thanks for the post Liam.
    One thing that may not be too clear is that IRC personal bouncers are allowed.

    ..
    Thanks DanielM for the positive feedback, appreciated.

      Does that mean I can run irssi etc. on it to access irc myself or not?

      September 25, 2013 @ 3:40 pm | Reply
      • You would be able to use irssi but not host an IRC server.

    Service is very good for me, too. I’ve got an irc client running and never had problems so far. I am always connected to my server.

  7. Nothing but praise for the amazing service they provide. Its top-notch and very stable.

    by the way, 512MB and 786MB are listed at the same price £4.40/Month. why same price?

    September 25, 2013 @ 2:05 am | Reply
    • I think as the 512MB comes with 4 CPU cores and the 768 comes with 2 ;)

      September 25, 2013 @ 3:11 am | Reply
      • Yes, this is correct. The 512mb was the original offer from last year which some people still prefer due to having access to 4 cores.

        Keep up the good work

  9. billing:

    Billing cycle.

    Is it possible to try the VPS with one month billing then if satisfied switch to annually and keep all the discounts?

    cheers

    September 25, 2013 @ 8:25 am | Reply
    • Yes, the billing cycle can be changed at a later date whilst retaining discounts.
      Just open a ticket to have this done when required

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.
