Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

OnePoundWebHosting – £6.30/Quarter 128MB Xen VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 24, 2011 @ 12:47 pm, by LowEndAdmin

OnePoundWebHosting Stuart, MD of OnePoundWebHosting, sent me some special discount for the LowEndBox readers a few days before my break. However as the offer is still valid I think it’s not too late to post it. They are offering 30% off recurring discount on their Xen PV or Xen HVM VPS hosting plans when you use coupon code LOWEND30, valid until 19 January 2012. Their cheapest plan “PV-128” would be £6.30/Quarter (~USD$3.27/month) after the discount. Direct sign up link here.

  • 128MB memory/128MB swap
  • 10GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • 4x vCPU cores
  • Xen/SolusVM

Corresponding WHT offer here (different code, same discount). They have servers with ServerHouse in UK (test IP: 195.49.147.100). OnePoundWebHosting is a registered UK company since 2006 (company number: 05886975). IRC is explicitly forbidden in ToS. Sounds like a strong team — but it could still be a one man show, like how this review almost 5 years ago has described.

    Odd. Site failed for me at home but when I use one of my VPN’s it works fine.

    • Hi,
      That is very strange, we are not aware of any connectivity issues. Does the website still not resolve for you on your home address?

    • Hi,

      This has been answered for you in your pre-sales enquiry but for the benefit of others here:

      **
      Whilst we believe our bandwidth allowances are more than adequate for most clients uses, extra bandwidth is available at the following pricing structure:

      10p per gb
      £2.50 per 50gb
      £5.00 per 150gb
      ****

  4. can you enable tun/tap on this and can it be used to install openvpn.?

    • Hi,

      HVM xen plans use tun/tap as default.
      Both PV and HVM VPS will show eth0 when installed and will act as a normal nic.

      Many clients run openvpn on their VPS, so this is not a problem.

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.
