Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

QuickVPS – £4.30 192MB Xen VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 28, 2010 @ 2:23 am, by LowEndAdmin

QuickVPS James from QuickVPS has been trying to post this VPS offer on LowEndBox for the past week. It started out as an upgrade to the previous exclusive offer. You get more space + monthly data for 50 pennies more. £4.50 was right on the threshold of USD$7/month a week ago — but I procrastinated. 2 days later USD sinked even more and 4.50 GBP is now above our threshold — it’s currently $7.13 at the moment according to Google. So James has to dropped his price even further — £4.30/month for the following VPS:

  • 192MB memory
  • 25GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Servers in Kent in UK. Direct sign up link here. You might want to be hurry as who knows whether USD is going to dip even further. Good for those of us who buy hosting packages with other currencies though :)

    @leb,

    there seems to be a sequence of UK based offers cropping up, is this random, or is there an underlying reason (like a big new datacentre in the UK) ?

  3. @andrew — I’ll think UK is one of the biggest market in Europe. There are also many cheap offers in Germany due to cheap dedi-boxes at Hetzner.

  6. We were doing some maintenance on that server which took longer than planned. It’s back up now. Thanks for your patience.

  7. I’ve been a customer at quickvps for the past 3 or 4 months, and to date I have had no down time!
    Speeds are very good (:

    using wget to get: http://download.thinkbroadband.com/100MB.zip gave me good speeds: 2010-10-02 11:01:16 (9.68 MB/s) – `100MB.zip’ saved [104857600/104857600]

    They’re without doubt the best VPS provider I’ve used to date (:

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.
