LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

OpenVZ.ca - $5 OpenVZ VPS with 128MB in Canada

OpenVZ.ca Joseph from Media Hosts emailed me about their new virtual server hosting venture — OpenVZ.ca that, well, provides OpenVZ hostings. Their cheapest package “Small” fits into our criteria at $5/month and you get

  • 128MB guaranteed memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

Servers are with Netelligent in Montreal, Canada. You can also get 80% off 1st month using promo code LowEndFirstMonth, or 10% off yearly payment using promo code LowEndYear1. Media-Hosts.com itself has been registered since 2004 (and saying “since 2002” on their website).

  1. Yes… in 2002 I wasn’t of “legal” age to register a company or open a business bank account so I operated under a family corporation.

    In 2004 everything was made “legit”.

    A little history of me!

  4. Joseph has been great with any question about the services. He takes a proactive approach with his business. How often does the business owner make first contact with you and check that your setup is going smoothly? I’m definitely sending my friends his way for VPS services! Highly recommended!

  8. Shouldn’t Use their VPS. he deleted Data customer without notice. his website only has 1 people, he answer for support, billing,.. I do not believe him, he cheat customer. After delete account customer, he said he will recreate and send me new password, i tried many times but cannot login.
    It’s my experience about his VPS.

    LOL, why don’t you tell the public the whole story? About how your real name isn’t John and how you didn’t pay your bill for 30 days? We sent you many notices and I even personally sent you a message stating that I will not delete your data so you have extra time to pay. Your current invoice was issued on December 21st 2010. Enough is enough.

    One good thing about being a small company, is that you know who people are when they post online no matter what the “alias” they use is.

    Not listed here, but should be, these VPS are only on a 10Mbps connection. It is MUCH more expensive to get a VPS with the standard 100Mbps line at this host
    Some trickery used here. Stay away

    I dont even think they make a 10mbps interconnects in our DC. Your comment is way out of line. All of our hardware nodes are on 100mbit connections. with gige uplinks to our core.

    If you purchase the “Small” package then the port is limited to 10mbit and this is fully advertised on the site.

    And if by “much” more expensive you mean a $10 dollar difference to upgrade to the “medium” package. Then you need to realize what your expectations are.

    We strive to make our customers happy every day. And you would know this if you were a customer of ours.

    Opened a ticket on boxing day (not a problem with their service, just a request to get an IPv6 address for my host). 38 minutes later, I had a reply and my request was taken care of very quickly after that. This also reflects my earlier experiences with their service – highly competent and very fast.

    I have had my VPS with them for almost a year and I have been thoroughly impressed – great value for my money.
