StockServers has reached out to us and sent in some offers on KVM plans, exclusive for LEB.
They wanted to be sure we knew that what they are offering on yearly deals for KVM are not often seen. Normally, the price commonly seen for OVZ and LXC offers, however StockServers are offering the prices for KVM with both IPV4 and IPV6.

You can find their ToS/Legal Docs here. They accept major credit cards and PayPal as payment.

As always, we encourage our readers to share their thoughts below in the comments section.

Here’s what they had to say: 

“StockServers LTD is based in London, UK but we offer a wide range of products and locations. We have recently expanded into New York and are now offering more and more services at reasonable prices. We strive to make our customers experience the best it can be, as well as offer personal one-on-one support for any of our customers, this has given us an advantage over our competitors who will normally look away from support tickets they don’t want to help with, but we do our best to make every ticket for support the best the customer has ever had.

  2. NoSFeRaTU:

    Played with KVM Offer #2 for a couple of days. Overall it is pretty good deal for a year price.
    Pros:
    – Not a superb but decent storage performance (mostly around 100MB/s linear) and responsiveness (mostly 0-1wa with very short spikes to 15-30wa)
    – Network speeds are normal for shared. Without any major slowdowns. Speeds are mostly consistent and around 50-100mbps depending on destination. Observed maximum is ~300mbps to neighbouring NY datacenter.
    – Great admin panel with lots of functionality. The only issue observed is that VPS Timezone function use pretty outdated data and so sets wrong clock for some zones on VM startup.

    Cons:
    – CPU core according to reported steal time is permanently locked to quarter of a core. And sure thing CPU is very slow. Like Pentium 3 era slow. Also most of modern cpu instructions like sse3+ are unavailable.
    – Unclear TOS/AUP whose from the looks of it are pretty outdated and covers only shared webhosting.

    Bench.sh + htop:

    P.S. Also there is no separate device for swap nor your disk size is larger for that amount. So why it is advertised at all for KVM is unclear.

    • Hi NoSFeRaTU,

      I can confirm that as default we have limited some resources, The typical Lowend offer will get overrun and will normally be unusable for most people, We decided to offer the best service we can that we would add hard limits, These can, of course, be lifted for users if they have a valid use case and we dont see any abuse, The disk speed is limited for all users however as we can lift it if needed.

      The CPU can also be requested as “Passthrough” to allow the flags that people want and a little better performance but there are going to be hard limits still on special plans.

      Also, these are advertised as KVM as they are KVM, OpenVZ is a container sharing a kernel, With KVM you can use any of our ISO provided to do your own install of the OS and change your kernel how you wish, you can also encrypt your drive which is a big thing over OpenVZ

      If you have any other problems or questions we always answer our tickets and are more then happy to help people over there.

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.
