Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

SliceBox – $3.99 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: March 17, 2009 @ 1:18 am, by LowEndAdmin

SliceBox Has anyone noticed that there seems to be more and more low-end VPS providers popping up from virtually nowhere? Is that the Gloabl Financial Crisis that drives the demand of cheap virtual servers? Or the cheap VPS is the new oversold reseller shared hosting account, where providers from nowhere want to come in to grab a quick buck?

Anyway. SliceBox is offering a 33% off lifetime discount on their OpenVZ on WHT. Their Plan1-Personal was already cheap at $5.95/month, and after the coupon code would become $3.99/month. You get:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • HyperVM/OpenVZ

Server is with FDC Servers in Denver CO.

    Hi, sorry about that actually, we are a fresh company, and the discount is for introductory offers, we were checking google search and came to this posting, thanks for ordering. The reason behind starting this is Myself got fascinated about VPS technology itself , plus we had to explore other line of businesses.

  5. Signed up with them, as Bergen Hosting wanted some sort of ID (i.e drivers license, etc..). I’ll report back how it goes.

  6. chuck@rum:~$ uptime
    20:19:53 up 47 days, 19:39, 1 user, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00

    Haven’t had a problem with them yet. Uptime would be near 60 days if I hadn’t rebooted the VPS for software installation reasons.

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.
