LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

SimpleRack – $6.50 512MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 22, 2010 @ 1:01 pm, by LowEndAdmin

SimpleRack Chris from SimpleRack emailed their special discount for LowEndBox readers. Use promo code 650VPS to get $12.50 recurring discount on their Entry Level VPS (direct order link).

  • 512MB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 700GB/month data transfer
  • 3 IP addresses
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in Kansas City MO. No burstable memory for OpenVZ, and RAID10 is used on their servers. We also have Chris, Cody and Bruce answering people’s comments in previous posts so definitely not a one man shop.

The first payment is pro-rata, so interestingly after you apply the $12.50 discount the first payment is $0. Not sure whether it is intended but sounds like you get a week to try out the VPS there :)

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.

  5. Yes we do run on a gigE network. Next month is still going to be 6.50/mo. The current promotion is 6.50 recurring.

  6. Hi everyone,
    Currently there is an error with our billing system where it prorates Control Panel licenses. This is an error so when you order your VPS please keep this in mind, I am working on contacting Chris to correct the issue. If you have any questions during the ordering process please do not hesitate to contact us via Live Chat or email at sales@simplerack.net.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for choosing Simple Rack.

    Thank you for your time,

    They will change the amount you owe, if you use coupon code and order cPanel. I ordered and the system said my recurring would be 12.32. When I logged in the first time, imagine my suprise that it then showed 18.82. I contacted support and was told that my amount should be 23.50 and that if I submitted a support ticket they would fix it. I submitted a cancellation and refund request, because of the bait and switch tactic. I would consider seriously before I signed up, just my suggestion. Might check some of the other providers on here first :)

    There is no bait and switch tactic. It was a simple mistake.

  11. Hi there,

    I’m their customer since their previous offer. I still happy with my VPS.

    It’s worth more than $5/mo.
