Tags: , , Date/Time: December 18, 2012 @ 12:29 am, by Zahra

Silver Knight TechnologiesAnthony, from SilverKnightTech, has a few exclusive offers for us located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

LEB 128

  • 128MB RAM
  • 5GB Storage
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • 1Gbps Network
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • 1TB Bandwidth
  • $1.95/Month – Order Link

LEB 256

  • 256MB RAM
  • 10GB Storage
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • 1Gbps Network
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • 1TB Bandwidth
  • $3.95/Month – Order Link
  • Location: Las Vegas

Silver Knight Tech have been featured here twice before underneath this brand, and a few more under a few other sub brands. Their last offer on here was actually for a $39.95/Month 4GB Dedicated Server in Las Vegas but this time they’ve got three OpenVZ offers for us. Unfortunately the third plan is priced at $7.95 which means it exceeds LowEndBox’s criteria and therefore cannot be listed here but you can view it on the order page.

They still offer a 30 day return policy and still accept payments via PayPal, Visa, Discover and Master Card. Your server will not be setup instantly as they only provision servers during normal business hours once your account has been verified and your payment has been received. Streaming, Legal Adult, Legal torrents, Proxies and vpn are allowed, but IRC, Warez and tor is not. For more information, their Terms of Service can be viewed here.

    Been waiting after their last deal went out of stock. Nice to see them back — was very satisfied under Just295 and let it lapse thinking I didn’t need it.

    With the BuyVM move and more providers going to LV, it seems like Vegas is getting pretty popular..

      Memory is a bit, um.. wonky. Using yum on Cent6 — hold all comments about memory hogging until after I finish this, please — and trying to do updates. Shit just ain’t working. Have to disable fastestmirror and even when I do that the wheels just fall off. Download goes fine, then..

      Haven’t had this problem before on any similar 128MB VPS, with burst memory or vSwap. Have reimaged a few times, got close to the same problems on Scientific. Can’t use Debian because I haven’t the slightest about creating custom dpkgs.

      Going to wait it out and try again; if it doesn’t work, will send in a ticket..

      On the upside, the usual barrage of tests can be done:

        You can’t run anything with 128 ram. Ask for 128 vSwap, then it will be O>K.

      • Something to try before running yum.
        1. Disable the fastmirror
        2. run the following command, then yum update

        # ulimit -s 128

        Should help.
        Thanks,
        Anthony

          Did it, it still spit up everywhere.

          Decided to upgrade to 256 to keep my sanity — well worth it regardless.
