Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

Qenox – $7 CAD 256MB KVM VPS in Atlanta

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 24, 2011 @ 1:17 pm, by LowEndAdmin

qenox Damiaan from Genox has offered LowEndBox readers a special discount for their KVM based hosting. Use coupon code LEB2011, you’ll be able to get their “Lite” plan for CAD$7/month (~USD$6.86, reduced from CAD$9.50). Direct signup link, and here’s its specification:

  • 256MB memory
  • 5GB storage (RAID10)
  • 100GB/month data transfer on 100Mbps
  • KVM/SolusVM

Canadians also need to pay GST or HST, depending on your province. Servers at the data center on 55 Marietta St, Atlanta GA. Qenox.com has been registered since September 2010, with WHOIS information masked and with a non-redundant NS setup. However according to the WHT member profile, it seems to be related to Idologic.com, who has been running managed VPS and web hosting for many years.

That’s it for me today. Wish everyone here a Merry Christmas!

    Quite nice due to the small bandwidth would of been nicer on a gigebit port

    • Thanks Ginger; we might revisit the max VPS bandwidth settings; the node itself is a gigE of course.

    • The node is on a gigE port of course; we’ll revisit plan structures in the future, so it’s possible more will be added.

    • Small bandwidth? What exactly are you hosting? I run a Google PR3 website with about 20k hits a month and could easily use 100gb in 6 months

    • No problem whatsoever :) We have now indicated the minimum RAM requirements on the signup form and the KB; but we’ll gladly install CentOS 6 on 256MB by temporarily doubling the RAM; apparently the installer wants 384MB.

  5. Just wanted to add we still have a 30% off coupon valid for all plans: Thirty2011. It brings down the $9.95 plan to $6.97 and is also applicable to the non LEB plans.

    Hi I was wondering if could get a traceroute from there to en.wikipedia.org and if there’s any test downloads. (it seems routing to florida from some places can be kind of dodgy)

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.
