    I started using SSDNodes in 2015 and since than I had zero issues. The reason I was looking for a new VPS provider was the last had some bad software updates to their servers that made me stay awake for almost 3 days. I bought the 8GB RAM offer on LowEndBox and to be on the safe side I bought another plan and still ended up paying less than previous provider.

    • Glad to have you with us! Sorry to hear about the software updates issue with your other provider, that’s no fun.

    • Yes! We include DDoS protection by default (through OVH). If you need it set permanently on your server, just open a ticket.

        • Plex won’t work on our platform, unfortunately (we don’t support FUSE + very heavy usage). Hosting legal adult content is fine, check the TOS on our legal page if you need any clarification.

    Hi Matt, do you by any chance have an LEB special with 16GB of RAM?

    Hi there,

    I am a sort of noob, and I’dl like to practice on Docker. I was wondering if I can upgrade from small to medium at same price even if the offer isn’t available anymore


    June 18, 2017 @ 4:21 pm | Reply
    • Hi Walter. Yes, you can upgrade at any time (with zero downtime). I can’t guarantee the same pricing in the future as this is a limited-time sale. The “Medium” plan right now is more than 50% off compared to the “Small” plan, you’d get double the specs for only $17.99 more.

      Hey Walter. I picked up a medium about a month ago to start playing around with Docker as well. It’s working great so far. I’ll be honest though, the extra cost between small and medium literally doubles your resources (RAM, storage, transfer, and cores). I’d definitely just start with the medium.

        Thanks Erik, Matt. I am a bit busy at the moment, I’ll do shopping in the very next days

  7. Hello everyone, just a quick note that we have launched our new Containers service in Dallas! Just select “US Standard (Dallas)” on the order form.

    • Peter:

      Are we able to move from Montreal to Dallas?

      June 28, 2017 @ 6:57 pm | Reply
      • Hey Peter, definitely in the future. Right now we don’t have enough capacity for both migrations and new orders.

    Sadly no monthly packages. Monthly is less risky, you can always switch.

    can I use serverpilot to deploy server on SSDNodes?

    • thekreek:

      I think it’s not possible, since they are limiting you to the kernel 3.10.0
      Remember it’s based on the commercial offering of OpenVZ.

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.
