RAM Host – $2.99 80MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: July 1, 2010 @ 12:02 pm, by LowEndAdmin

RAM Host Via this WHT offer. RAM Host usually has their VPS completely sold out and it’s good that they now have some stock for ordering — although their Kansas City DC is sold out again, and only 4 left in Atlanta for their $2.99/month Nano VPS. You get

  • 80MB guaranteed/128MB burstable memory
  • 2GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

They use their custom control panel which gives you status of the host nodes. RAM Host has built pretty good reputation since it first got listed here almost a year ago. They have continued to grow and will be offering Phoenix AZ as their west location soon.

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.

    Hello,

    We have now been using RAM Host for over three months. The service is really great, there was not even a single minute of downtime. The support is also doing well if we understand that it is an unmanaged service. I am really satisfied! :)

    Regards,
    Levente

    I’ve been w/ RamHost for over a year and had no issues. Excellent support and service. I would recommend them to all (my review: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=871190).

    I use a couple of their low-end 3$ (and some custom builds) for my more important projects for at least 3 months now. They have had great uptime, the network is good (Kansas City with Wholesale Internet I believe, I was told the Atlanta ones are even better), and I have never had to really contact support which is what is really great. I remember only once having a problem with the vps and that was due to a large scale DDoS attack on Kansas City. I checked the status page and saw that not only was the server down but everything was. Then a bit later on the news page updates about them working on it. Never needed to ask what was going on, I knew about it. I wasn’t happy about losing money during the downtime but knowing exactly what was happening I felt I was in safe hands. Also, I really like having graphs for the entire server. It lets me check for consistency. If something seems to be a bit off (like connection speed) I can check to see if it is a node problem or maybe something I did. Makes debugging so much easier…

    My only complaints are the control panel, its a bit simple and buggy. Also their backups aren’t something I would rely on and I don’t think they use raid on their older nodes which means do your own backups as often as possible.

  5. Thanks for the mention and the positive feedback :)

    We’re continually working on improving that and adding more features.

    All our older servers in Atlanta are being upgraded now with raided drives and newer, higher performing hardware. Kansas City hardware will be upgraded once Atlanta is done being upgraded (KC will be sold out for a while until everything gets upgraded in both locations) and then once all the legacy hardware has been replaced we’ll begin turning up vps out of PhoenixNAP.

    @LowEndAdmin: might be time to update that thumbnail of our site ;)
