LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Prgmr.com – $6/Month 128MB Xen VPS

Prgmr.com Thanks to Luke who notified us about their plan changes. Prgmr.com has released their new Xen VPS plans. The disk space and monthly data transfer amount has shrinked for their $5/month 64MB VPS. However for an extra dollar per month, you can get:

  • 128MB memory
  • 3GB storage
  • 20GB/month data transfer
  • CentOS 5 or Debian 4

Their new server seems to be at Fremont with HE.net (one of my favourite DC). The amount of data per month is a bit limiting although the overage is at only 10 cents/GB. As the motto of Prgmr.com is “We don’t assume you are stupid.”, this is a strictly unmanaged service.

Update: Got an email from Luke @ Prgmr.com, and he said that you can get a 256MB Xen VPS for $6.40/month if you prepay for 12 months, which would fit in our criteria of a “low end box”. And you get 256MB dedicated memory, 6GB storage and 40GB/month data transfer.

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.

  1. I host this website with them, it’s good. On their $6 128mb plan. Just done a load test, it can handle up to 40 concurrent visitors fine on a default mysql/apache install on CentOS, using wordpress with a whole bunch of plugins. going to play with some monitoring tools and see what the bottleneck is, I should be able to increase that drastically with some configuration.

    I’d recommend this service.
