RansomIT – $21/Quarter – 1024MB KVM in Adelaide, Australia

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: March 5, 2013 @ 8:24 pm, by Liam

Oliver, from RansomIT, has sent in this exclusive offer. RansomIT have had a virtual monopoly on the LowEnd Australian market for a while, but we recently featured another Aussie host. Competition in Australia is hotting up!

Meerkat LEB KVM VPS

  • 1024MB RAM
  • 20GB Diskspace
  • 2 Shared CPU Cores
  • 40GB Inbound Bandwidth
  • 120GB Outbound Bandwidth
  • Shared 100mbit Port
  • 1 IPv4 & 20 IPv6
  • KVM/SolusVM
  • Promo Code: LOLMEERKATS
  • $21/Quarter | Order Link

RansomIT have been a registered “discretionary Trading Trust” since 2008 (click here for more info). They’re using the Intel Xeon E5430 CPU and, at minimum, 7200rpm SAS drives in RAID1. This plan is usually $33, but in this offer it will only cost $21 per quarter after the promo code has been applied. Ransom have been featured several times before. I couldn’t find any reviews regarding RansomIT’s virtual services, so it would be great if any of their customers could share their experience with us!

RansomIT accept payments through Paypal. TOR/adult content/torrents/newsgroups/spamming/gameservers is not allowed but IRC is okay. Refunds can be given if you’re unhappy with your service or if problems occur. They will however not be given if your vps has been terminated for breaching their Terms of Service.

Network Information:

Servers are colocated with Colocity in Adelaide, South Australia. You can see their AS Network here.

      It’s large for Australia, doubly so for Adelaide where bandwidth is super-expensive.

      This is an incredible offer and I’d highly recommend it if you need an Aussie VPS and don’t mind being away from the east coast.

      Or you could watch youporn clips via ssh tunnel for a few minutes. Should make it worthwhile, no?

  7. I vouch for the service. Not only the uptime is outstanding but Oliver has given me a free upgrade to KVM when I chose the wrong virtualization platform.
    I also never had any problems with the server.

  8. Interesting that you guys have gzip enabled for your test file, was initially amazed by the speeds (2.2MB/s on my dodgy home connection)

    Might be worthwhile disabling gzip on that file in future :P

    For $1/Q less I’m on 256MB OpenVZ, 20GB disk, 20GB net and no IPv6 :(

    Can us older RansomIT LEB customers get a bit of a boost? :)

      Not sure which Scott you are but if you (and any other older customers) are wanting an upgrade submit a ticket and we’ll work something out.

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.
