LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

StriveHost – $5.95 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 13, 2010 @ 1:44 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated Oct 2010: Domain not resolving since 7 October, and the box has been going up and down for a few days prior to that. Looks like it is not coming back this time.

StriveHost Via this WHT offer. StriveHost is offering some “grand opening” specials. $5.95/month with its “Ant Hill” VPS package (ordering link).

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200Gb/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

Apart from the low price, I can’t seem to find anything in favor of this provider. Even the price isn’t that low considering many other offers listed on this blog. Servers in HostNOC in Scranton PA. Private WHOIS registration. Non-redundant DNS (and problematic too, as there’s mismatch). New business with domain registered for only 2 months. Desktop class hardware — Q8300 on VPS page is more like “yester-year’s mid-range” than “top of the line”. I guess I will stop here. It could have good personal service but I don’t think I will give it a try — at least not until it has been around for a year.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  3. It’s an exact copy except for the change of header graphics.

    The home link is broken from their terms page as well.

  6. It appears that StriveVPS.com did not strive to keep alive. Domain has not been resolving since 7 Oct. Looks like it is going to be in the dead pool this month.
