LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

QuickWeb – $6 512MB OpenVZ VPS in Germany Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: September 15, 2010 @ 2:43 am, by LowEndAdmin

QuickWeb Roel from QuickWeb has emailed me their new exclusive offer for the LowEndBox readers. There are actually two different offers, and both are in Germany. First of all, use promo code LEB6 to get the following OpenVZ VPS for $6/month (from $8.95/month). Direct order link here.

  • 512MB guaranteed/768MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

The second offer, according to Roel, is for the first 4 months only. Use promo code LEB60 to get 60% off discount on their DE Xen Basic VPS. $5.98/month (from $14.95/month). Direct order link here.

  • 256MB memory/384MB swap
  • 12GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

As many readers here would know that this very blog is running on QuickWeb’s VPS in Dallas TX (thanks to QuickWeb for providing me a server). One single Xeon core, 80MB memory, Debian 5 32bit. Running Nginx + PHP + MySQL and WordPress with no fancy caching. It just received 12,000 page views (and 89k HTTP hits) yesterday, and the loadavg does not even go over 0.1.

Maybe they have put me on a relatively empty box — I have no idea :) However I have been pretty pleased with the VPS I have got so far.

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.

  4. That’s cool. Received 15,500+ page views yesterday according to Google Analytics and the micro VPS holds out pretty well. Not sure why sudden jump of traffic — could be attacked again?!

  11. Is Ubuntu 10.04 available on the OpenVZ offer or is it just limited to the operating systems on the order page?

  13. @Tope Ubuntu 10.04 LTS are available with OpenVZ or XEN, I can confirm that because I have both with QuickWeb without any issues. The order page might need updating to include the latest templates the offer

    Is the 60% off XEN also applies to annual payment ? (i.e. 60%off 85USD = 34USD anually ?)

  15. Hi Phil, it only apply to monthly as the yearly is already discounted in itself :)

    Could Some one can help me..
    I’ve install cpanel, and already install cpaddon, but it’s still not display in my client (e.g. mambo,worpress,etc)

    I’m very appreciated if some one could take out me from this issue.

    Thanks

    September 23, 2010 @ 4:52 am | Reply
  22. @Benny,

    I suggest you use softaculous as it is much better product and easy to install though mambo/joomla might not be available on free version, full version is just $12/yr.

    To All Clients, please be aware that we are rebooting all OpenVZ nodes for emergency kernel upgrade as per announcement, please stay tuned at our twitter account for live information about node reboot schedules.

    Thanks,
    Roel
