SecuredSpeed – $4 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix

Tags: , , Date/Time: December 11, 2011 @ 11:45 am, by LowEndAdmin

SecuredSpeed Christmas is surely getting closer! Matt from SecuredSpeed has emailed me their holiday special a few days ago (which was also posted on WHT). Two plans and two different discounts.

  • VPS TWO Plan
  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 350GB/month data transfer
  • $4/month with promo code SSTWO1011. Direct signup link
  • VPS THREE Plan
  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 450GB/month data transfer
  • $6.50/month with promo code SSTHREE1011. Direct signup link

Those are OpenVZ/SolusVM plans with servers with PhoenixNAP in Phoenix AZ (test IP: 66.85.139.187). Launched in July 2011, although according to Lucas they were officially started back in 2009 hosting sites for family, friends and small business.

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.

  1. Thanks for the listing LEA.

    These will all be provisioned on gigabit nodes (in case anyone was wondering).

    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

      • Hey Amfy,

        We will be adding IPv6 right when our data center says it’s ready. I don’t have an ETA for it at the moment, but they are working on it.

        I can load an Arch linux distro for you no problem.

    I’d like them. The website design is minimalistic, there offers are cheap, and the price of 4$ is perfect and a nice number :)

    I have made some tests, if someone want a specific thing, please say it, and maybe I could do that in some hours again, maybe they went better ;)

    Can I get a VPS if I do not have a domain name registered for it ? I am looking for a server to perform as the back end (crunching and indexing text mostly) for a machine learning project.

    Since it is not going to be exposed to the public directly I do not need a DNS name and the VPS Three offer suits my needs perfectly. However I tried to order and couldn’t do so without providing a server name and an NS record (I have neither).

    • A domain name is not required. Just put whatever name you want in the hostname box, then enter ns1 and ns2 in the following two boxes.

      If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us through the site. Thanks.

    • If you do not have a PayPal account that is fine, it is not required. You can checkout and pay with a credit card.

    Matt at SecuredSpeed is absolutely awesome. I got a quick automated setup, practically instantly, enabled TUN on the vps, speed is insane, and dirt cheap. My support ticket was answered in 4 minutes. That’s unheard of. Thanks again Matt!!

    I purchased a 512Mb VPS from SecuredSpeed last month, and I would have to say they had just about as much stability/uptime as Bhost.co.uk. For the record, Bhost was good for uptime and performance for the network and the VPS. So far I have tried 3 different providers using OpenVZ, and I just haven’t fallen in love with the virtualization platform, when compared to common Xen/VmWare.

    Support from Matt @SecuredSpeed was….speedy(hehe), as I only had to request Iptables mods be added to my vm, and it was done in a quick and friendly manner.

    I would say that the vps and the network were pretty good, and also the support I received was professional. I would recommend this provider if you happen to need an OpenVZ VPS with good performance in the SW USA.
