LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

RansomIT – $20.00/Quarter OpenVZ 256MB RAM in Australia

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 8, 2012 @ 8:28 pm, by mikho

RansomITOliver from RansomIT sent in an offer in February that got a pretty good response and is now back with the same offer once more.

Specifications

  • 256MB of Memory, burstable to 320MB
  • OpenVZ
  • 1 CPU core
  • 15GB of disk space
  • 25GB of data transfer
  • You get 1 IPv4 (no IPv6)
  • TUN/TAP/PPP is enabled
  • Shared 100mbit port
  • Order Link (no promocode needed)

Servers are in Adelaide, South Australia at Colocity (www.colocity.com)

UPDATE: IPv6 is now available, submit a ticket to enable it on your VPS.

– Test IP: 119.252.16.33

– TOS here: http://www.ransomit.com.au/terms_of_service

– Ransom IT Trust is the business name (company structures are different so it’s actually a Trust and not a Company, but for the end user on LEB this makes no difference)

As a last note: Most of the LEB regulars knows that Bandwidth in Australia costs an arm and a leg (prices from feb = $1.50 /GB) so this offer which includes 25 GB /month is a good one.

  3. That bandwidth allocation is huge for AUS.

    Well done :)

      But everything in Australia is upside down…. wait 25 upside down looks like 25 :\

      • That’s why we’ve opted for 25 GB. Nearly impossible for anyone to get confused regardless of whether you’re upside down or not. :-)

    • DNS cluster seems to be a popular choice. Otherwise web and email servers as usual for those without huge data requirements. VPNs or private proxies are also a common use. The latency is probably the primary attractive point for those in Australia and New Zealand while for foreigners it’s having geographic diversity for services requiring high redundancy.

      You can do a lot; be creative. :-)

      • Inglar:

        For ‘DNS cluster’ would be ideally to see VPS with less amount of RAM,
        for example 64Mb /even 32 Mb may be enough as for me/, the same about HDD,
        and of course in this case set for it little bit lower price :)

        I think it would be also very creative on your side :)

        July 10, 2012 @ 5:01 pm | Reply
        • This is pretty much the lowest limit I can go here anyway simply because of the IP space, so even if I did offer less resources I don’t think I could drop the price much.

          I’ll keep it in mind though since it does seem to be a common use.

    Don’t you hate it when you briefly wake, and decide to have a quick squiz at LEB.

    Only to find out Oliver is back with another offer!

    I’ve had my vps since the first offer made here on LEB, never looked back.
    Second location in Australia for myself, this is the cheaper and better of the two ^_^
    I was very iffy on the bandwidth allocation(peace of mind i guess) – the main goal was web-hosting for clients. Turns out it doesn’t consume as much as i had thought, with plenty to spare every month!

    Thanks Oliver and keep up the great offer for aussie oi!

  7. Thanks kro. :-)

    I just wanted to update this to say that IPv6 is now available. After signing up just post a support ticket requesting it.

    A big thanks to William from EDIS and the rest of the crew on IRC for providing assistance with the IPv6 setup.

      Is this tunneled IPv6 or none-tunneled IPv6? Can you give a test IPv6 address?

    • As per William’s post I am sure that’s not normal for Australian users. The latency tests from locations on the other side of the world are better than that. What type of connection are you on Paul?

    • Hi, if you’re who I think you are then you should have received a deployment notice before you made the above post. I just checked the logs and a message was successfully delivered to your email service provider on the late afternoon of the 12th (Adelaide time).

      If you haven’t received it please email service@ransomit.com.au or file a support ticket. I’ve had them all deployed and ready within 6 hours so far.

      Thanks
