      I am still happy about the server, still quick IO and network response.
      I even got a pleasant surprise at the checkout, 256MB CVZ – Cached VPS has 40GB dist, and is listed here as 30GB!

      Great service
      I have another non-profit I am webmaster for, and I am concidering moving them here as well (if the quality of the server stays this high)

    For the 3GB OpenVZ yearly plan you have it listed as 1TB BW but it is only 500gb at the check out.

    Typo?

    • Yes, I thought the LEB guys caught that in their original review but I’ll ask them to update. Thanks!

    Want to try it but it seems the latency is almost equal to Germany VPS from here (a bit lower ~30ms)

    Ordered my second. Debian minimal template is best I’ve so far (3mb initial usage without any “crap”). Instant RDNS on both IPv4/6 is sweet too. Network and performance top notch too. Best <20$/y .us deal out there atm imo.

  11. Does it support tun/tap, l2tp, and nat module ?
    I’m interested for order also.

    • Make sure you’re using the Intel network card if that is Ubuntu. That download speed is very low compared to normal.

      • how do I know the vps is using intel network card ?

        • It will show you in the SolusVM control panel. Make sure you thoroughly review our KVM Guide which was linked in your VPS information email.

  18. I performed a smoke test to compare the speed of RamNode and SecureDragon, by embedding a script that downloads a 64KB file from each server. Most of my visitors come from China, and others reside in United States. The result is: 86% of 1510 samples have faster speed from RamNode than from SecureDragon.

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.
