LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

QualityServers – £2.70 256MB OpenVZ VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 8, 2011 @ 11:05 am, by LowEndAdmin

QualityServers James from QualityServers (ex-QuickVPS) has sent me their launch promotion for their OpenVZ-based product on LowEndBox two weeks ago. They have to wait a week because of the new listing criteria (maximum one offer per provider per month). Then the email got lost inside the INBOX so I procrastinated for another week util James poked me again. Anyway. QualityServers/QuickVPS have been offering cheap Xen here since at least April 2010. Now they are branching out to offer OpenVZ plans. With promo code openvzlaunch you can get 60% off life time discount. Their “Bronze” plan is then just £2.70/month (~USD$4.37) with this sign up link.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

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.

    Is this provider reliable? There have been no comments on this deal, so I am a bit worried.

      • You could have just edited the comment. I wouldn;t have minded if you included a mention about it. :)

        These new meds I’;m taking are really causing problems. I spent yesterday watching a 35 gig download come down from my you-know-what-box. Didn;t get squat done.

        It’s interesting that this is the third comments. Could have sworn that there wasn;t any others when I made it. The moderation queue get filled yesterday or something?

    I bailed on an earlier offer I took up because of slow & erratic I/O; generally sub 10MB/s and all over the place.

    I raised a ticket and the response was “it’s stabilised now @ 35MB/s, don’t expect much off a low end box” which was kind of missing the point. If someone’s thrashing the disc then look in to it. Simple.

      @ fugoki

      Was that on OpenVZ or on Xen?

      • Hi,

        That was Xen, and I stand by what I said – at the <£3 mark we can't offer you 15K SAS drives etc. unfortunately. We are just trialing OpenVZ at the moment on a RAID10 node, whereas our Xen nodes are RAID1, so in theory the IO should be much, much better on this promotion though.

          Nobody expects ridiculous performance @ £3 but that has nothing to do with people raping the I/O, has it?

          March 8, 2011 @ 11:43 pm | Reply
        • Absolutely not. To combat this, we are starting to roll out better arrays with better IO performance such as the one on this special.

        • Harbinger:

          If i/o is poor (or not of the speed I expect haha) on the £3.00 offer, are the 512 and 1 gig plans on a different node?

      • We have lots of Xen nodes – if you’re not happy with one we can put you on another one.

  5. Just like to add, we offer a 14 day money back guarantee, so if you’re worried about IO speeds or anything else, give us a try and see whether we fit the bill for you. It is our goal to keep our customers for years to come, so we want to make sure you’re completely happy with your purchase.

    I bought one just over a month ago. Performance is pretty good, network is pretty good but there has been some uptime problems, with it being down for a few hours at the most. Support is great. Even with the bits of downtime, which you should pretty much expect from a low end VPS, i’d recommend them.

  7. Promotion code does not apply to software license? cPanel?

    March 9, 2011 @ 1:03 am | Reply
    • No, if you order cPanel your price will be increased after you order for the full £9.50. We have to charge full price for cPanel as we do not make a profit on the licences.
