    Looks good :) However, I think there’s a typo in the test file links. They aren’t working right now.

    • Hi,

      They are working from my test. What error did you get?

      I also don’t see any lies. If you know a way to obtain these VPSes cheaper, feel free to explain how, or come and resell them at 20% price increase instead of 50 (as you say), and become rich. :)

    Back in 2013 I ordered one of these Beijing VPS and so far I am pretty happy with this VPS (uptime is at the moment 377 Days).
    After the first billing cycle the billing cycle period changed from 12 months to 6 months with the same price per billing cycle. So that doubled the price for that VPS. But hey this is a VPS within China :) and technically everything is stable.
    There is just one thing I am not comfortable with -> there is no Debian Image available for that VPS in China and I am not really a big fan of CentOS.

    So now I ordered a South Korea VPS and will see how that will perform (Debian Image is available yay :) ).

    Interesting “AUP”…

    “Engaging in activities whether *lawful* or unlawful that StarryDNS *determines to be harmful* to its subscribers, operations, reputation, goodwill or customer relations.”
    aka “We can terminate your service for any reason if we want”

    • We will suspend it, not terminate, if we determines to be harmful.

    Would buy one if they can provide hardware spec & price similar with DigitalOcean (e.g. KVM based, 512MB Memory, Single Core, 20GB SSD, smaller bandwidth and transfer than DO and price no higher than $10).

    Well just a dream. I see that Korean servers and internet connections are more expensive than other popular places.

      Korea Telecom, SK Telecom and LG U+ are well known murderers for all kinds of internet companies. it’s even more expensive than brazilian companies iirc, what are you expecting from them? o_o

    Total scam. Avoid ordering from StarryDNS. I did, and never received what I paid for. The VPS was never provisioned, and their support channels never responded.

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.
