LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

RaptorNode - $5 Monthly 256MB OpenVZ in Dallas, Texas

Jonathan, from RaptorNode, recently sent in two offers but we’ve decided not to list one of them. The plan in question was a yearly offer but was ineligible to be listed as RaptorNode have not been in business long enough to meet LowEndBox requirements. Though, the second offer can be posted.


  • 256MB RAM
  • 512MB Burst RAM
  • 1 vCPU Core
  • 25GB Raid1 Diskspace
  • 1000GB Bandwidth
  • 100Mbps Port speed
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • $5.00 /month | Order Link

According to RaptorNode, their main goal is to provide their customers “with the highest level of service and support”, backed by a “team of professionals with over 10 years of experience in the industry”. ‘Jonathan’ use to run vHostlayer who we featured once and nearly featured again until we had to pull the post in response to him listing the company for sale. Jonathan mentions that they decided to sell vHostlayer because they’re now purely concentrating on their USA colocation and hosting business. It is worth noting that vHostlayer’s past wasn’t exactly clean, as reported on the last thread, but they had came a long way since then. I was a little surprised and shocked to see this post by them on Hackforums but as you can see below, Jonathan refutes it was them. If you’re a customer, or become one, please leave a review below.

Paypal and moneybrookers are the only accepted payment methods. You can purchase many add ons such as: Management for $10/month, Additional IP addresses for $2 each per month, cPanel & WHM for $15/month, an extra 512MB Ram for $4/month, an extra 1TB Transfer for $7/month and an additional 10GB Storage for $5/month. For more information, you can view their Terms of Service & Acceptable Usage Policy here.

    If the Monster on HackForums isn’t you then you should definitely complain to HackForums about someone impersonating you. You might even want to file a police report against the person who is “impersonating” you on HackForum because he could be a stalker since he’s already tried to assume your identity…you never know what “the impersonator” might try next :) Here’s another thread where the Monster “impersonator” gives a vhostlayer email address and skype handle as his contact info:

  2. I have rewritten a part of the post, so it’s now more ‘balanced’.
    Hopefully Jonathan will reply and clear a few things up.

    Older comments have been removed as they didn’t make sense following the update (feel free to repost).

    • Thank you Liam for for editing our ad, I would like to clear this about the post on hackforums, as I have just been made aware of this and this wasn’t anything to do with me personally, I have hundreds of satisfied customers on vHostLayer and we have the customer base to prove that as we have been around 1 Year, We will look forward to serving new customers in on our Dallas Network.

    • Also I love the way the uptime monitors are down? So I wouldn’t say very reliable for its purpose.

  8. Nice website, interested in who developed it (was it you?) and if it was cheap as it looks pretty amazing and if the price is right, I’d be interested in hiring them too :D
