    I have several of the 4gb KVM servers from SnowVPS. If you don’t mind a little slower response to service tickets, the servers are performing fairly well for a good price. Just picked up my 3rd with them today. Their Ubuntu 18.04 image is bad. So, until they get it fixed you will have to get the Ubuntu 16.04 and then run the apt-get dist-upgrade to get it up to 18.04. By the time this gets posted it will probably already be fixed.

    I have had some servers running for 6 months now and for my development and testing work they are great. I only had one server stall during that time and I just rebooted it and all was well. I use uptimerobot to monitor all of my servers and these have tracked better than some of my more expensive servers.

    As always – Your mileage may vary ;)

    Really poor technical support. Ubuntu autoinstallation is not working and I have already wasted 3 hours trying to explain to their technicians without success.

    Invoice was for $4.50. After click to pay button the price is increased with VAT ($5.44), which is not mentioned in the invoice. Then after click to button “Pay USD 5.44” it is redirected to Paypal, and there is VAT included again! The final price is $6.38. Sorry, I am not going to pay this…

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.
