LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

QuillHost – $5 OpenVZ VPS with 64MB RAM

Tags: , , Date/Time: October 28, 2008 @ 12:00 am, by LowEndAdmin

Via this WHT deal, QuillHost is offering the following VPS for $5/month.

  • 64MB guaranteed memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • CentOS/Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora Core/Gentoo

As the control panel provided is HyperVM, I am assuming the virtualization technology used here is OpenVZ. You can also apply some coupon code (see linked WHT page) to get double RAM + space or 20% off lifetime (bringing it down to $4/month). IP of the main web site is at Colo 4 Jax in Jacksonville, FL, and I assume the hosted VPS will also be there as well.

Alright. Now it’s the nitpicking time — why you might not want to consider this host:

  • There’s no website other than a copy of Client Exec that let you order VPS packages.
  • According to WHOIS, the domain was created on 2 Oct 2008 — less than a month old.
  • Contact information in WHOIS is privacy-masked. Most dodgy operations have their contact information masked as well.
  • From the interaction between the owner and customers on that WHT post, I doubt the owner knows exactly what he is doing.

Good luck if you decided to go with this host! :)

    I went with this host due to the vps being 4$
    with coupon. So at the most I will lose 4 bucks
    if they disapear.

    the vps was setup in about 12hrs and it is hosted on a quad core server at Limestone Networks (in Dallas Texas)

    seems to be fast and stable but Im not doing anything with it yet.

    I bought through this deal. I’m satisfied until now. VPS seems to be stable, and I’m on a harpertown 5420.

    Looks like a good deal. :D

    The vps is decent, the only downside being that the 5$ vps plan (4$ with coupon) is limited to 100mhz on each
    of the four cores.

    my 5$ superbytes vps outperforms it by quite a bit as it is not limited in this way.

    I’ve bought the smallest plan. Its strange, I have 150 MHz from each core. So, I have a total of 600 MHz CPU, and 128 MB RAM (They offered me double RAM)

    This sale is great. Just a new company, so there isn’t lot to say.

    and I don’t think its a scam, as they’re advertising it through our ISP.

  8. YES they are.

    i bought one package from them.
    as usual, i need to install my firewall scripts which is need a specific kernel module to loaded.
    the kernel got loaded after 1 MONTH.

    their support is REALLY SLOW.
