Saaki – $7 128MB KVM VPS in Tampa

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 12, 2011 @ 2:13 am, by LowEndAdmin

Saaki.net “WaQas Lal” from Saaki.net emailed me a while ago, and you can also see it advertised on WHT. Here is another KVM-based provider, with price starting at $7/month for the following VPS.

  • 128MB memory
  • 8GB storage
  • Unmetered bandwidth
  • Linux KVM

Direct sign up link here. They got some popular Linux distros as well as Windows Server 2003, although I think it will be next to impossible to run on 128MB of memory. 64MB KVM is also an option at $5/month. “Unmetered bandwidth” is a bit ambiguous, i.e. how fat is the pipe? On this WHT post last month it mentioned 100Mbps uplink, but again I have no idea how saturated the pipe is. Servers in Tampa FL with Hivelocity (test IP: 96.31.74.168).

Domain was registered in 2005, although Way Back Machine have archived it as a dating site back in 2006. WHOIS info leads to a hotel in Pakistan.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

        They’re using Wildcard SSL. Maybe that’s why.

      • Firefox 4 raises the SSL error as well. Looks like they are doing wildcard with StartSSL.

        • I actually suspect it is not a wild card certificate, I used to do this test where I put in a cert request for *.mydomain.com (single domain cert), I will get a cert back but Firefox will complain no matter what the https page I tried to go to. I think they might have used the same.

    • And this this Ville, who should know that he or she should be either explaining him or herself or providing a link that does so.

      Please remember that “Tits or Go F’ Yourself” isn’t just an internet meme, it’s a requirement for life. :)

          I think that Doc said that he would like to hear more regarding your accusations. Saakis “famous” reputation obviously didn’t reach us yet so “famous reseller and wht spammer” out of nowhere means very little to us as long you don’t tell us more.

          Ah okay. Just search on webhostingtalk. He use to bump all the I’m
          looking for a vps with his signature and spam all those kind of
          threads promoting himself until he got banned and ran of to
          warezjunction. Also if you see his offerings he offers loads of vps
          from burst thrust rapidspeeds etc.

          I think zhang aka william from edis made a thread somewhere on WHT
          listing where waqas re sells from.

          zhang aka william from edis? I think that you’re mistaken here. William “Zhang Ltd. HK” Zhang-Shiu doesn’t seems same as William “Edis” Weber but as it seems both live in Austria.

          btw. when you said WaQas bells start to ring… No need to search over WHT anymore :)

          Damn… it seems like you’re righ and this guy run two identities. I noticed that Zhang-Shiu use at his str0.at website ww@… mail adress (william weber?) and then I whoised domain str0.at (http://www.nic.at/en/domainsuche/) and there appeared also edis tech contact with edis nameservers. Interesting.
