RethinkVPS – $6.76 128MB OpenVZ VPS with 1Gbps Unmetered in LA/Scranton

RethinkVPS Sam from RethinkVPS has emailed me their LowEndBox exclusive promo. Use coupon code LEB15 at checkout to get 15% off recurring discount. Here’s their VPS hosting plans, and “VPS 1.0” is $6.76/month after the discount. Direct sign up link.

  • 128MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 1Gbps unmetered bandwidth
  • 2x IPv4 addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

They take both PayPal and AlertPay. Sam told me that recently they have moved to a new datacenter which enables them to provide full 1Gb/sec unmetered bandwidth, whereas their previous offer only gives 400GB/month before throttled to 20Mbps. And from their last WHT offer, they seem to be at Los Angeles and Scranton, again! Didn’t they just move to Ubiquity Servers in Atlanta/Phoenix a few months ago, from LA and Scranton? The price also went up a bit, but you do get more storage space.

WHOIS is still masked, and they still have both NS on the same server. IRC, torrent and anonymous proxies are forbidden in the ToS.

  1. Just a little warning. We have ordered a new IP subnet but because it is Sunday we won’t get it till tomorrow. So if you order before then please expect a couple of hours wait.

    • Thanks for your interest Jack.

      Can you give us about 24 hours to get a speedtest file posted for you as well as test IP. We are still working hard to migrate customer data over from a few of the nodes.

    Hello,

    Where can I find your TOS, there must be some restrictions I guess where I can use your unmetered bandwidth for.

  7. Sorry all –

    We waited till the last moment to migrate our own web services to our enw web server and It appears we had a slight issue with DNS and IP Binding. This has been fixed now and we are back online.

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.
