    How is that considered a deal? That just horrible value. You can buy bigger better stronger for the same price of actually acknowledged companies.

    Worst offer on LEB ever. Can easily get a better deal (with more resources and cheaper price) from reputable hosts.

    Joke..

    If it would be a KVM it still would be expensive, and as it’s OVZ it’s ultra-expensive. However maybe performance is good?

      • You’re right that it has no weight at all. This has actually been removed from our ToS.

        As for the refund policy, I’ve updated our ToS to include our 15 day money back guarantee.

    Going to be hard for hosts @ OVH now.

    When you can get a 2GB KVM for $4.50, why would anyone buy from a small host?

      It’s only $3.49 for me on their US site so that makes it even harder for hosts :) and their new KVM line is solid, my $3.49 OVH KVM VPS has been amazing so far.

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.
