LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Surmounted.NET – $5 128MB Xen VPS in Dallas

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 6, 2011 @ 5:35 am, by LowEndAdmin

Surmounted.NET Curtis from Surmounted.NET emailed me their low end package last week. They have recently migrated from SingleHop in Chicago to TailorMadeServers in Dallas (announcement on WHT) thus able to offer low price Xen VPSs — although these are probably everyday price here at LowEndBox :) So here is what you will get for $5/month. Sign up link here.

  • 128MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • 2x IPv4 addresses
  • Xen/SolusVM

They support either PayPal or Google Checkout as payment method. I can’t seem to be able to find a test IP address to ping on their website, but did notice that their FAQ page returns a 404. Pretty standard shared-hosting centric ToS. Both NS point to the same IP address at Wholesale Internet. Domain has been registered by Curtis in Indiana since April 2010, although their introductory Xen offer was only posted in May this year.

And Curtis should probably have his username changed as he is probably no longer associated with Vazapi (started by ServerMinds but sold to Netrouting in July).

Curtis is also launching a new low-end VPS brand called root@vps. Hopefully some more interesting pricing there.

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.

  1. I just wanted to touch base on this listing:

    1.) WE ARE NOW SOLD OUT. A new node will come online hopefully within the next week or so.
    2.) Test IP is always available upon request. Someone ‘in the know’ should be available on our heldesk 24/7 to even answer pre-sales type questions. Never hesitate to contact us because we’re pretty darn fast in response.
    3.) FAQ page will be back up soon. Since we had a change of upstream providers / physical location 95% of it had to be re-written. Got a question? Ask and i’ll inlucde it on the page. Sorry about that.
    3.) Yes, I am ‘Vazapi-Curtis’ on WHT… I’ve had an open name-change request ticket since July (Marked 6months since previous change, allowed for a new one) with no action yet by WHT mods. I acted as the ‘brand manager’ for that company in January of this year, and quickly jumped ship some two or three weeks later. Unfortunately, i’m still stuck with the name until a mod decides to log into the WHT Helpdesk and change it, nothing I can do about that now. Just want to make it clear that we are not associated with Vazapi or Serverminds in anyway.

    Surmounted isn’t typically a budget provider however when developing the plans for our new Xen VPS service I realized that our 128MB RAM Xen VPS met the criteria for being posted here. Though, as mentioned, rootatvps is in development and may be the better brand for the budget market.

    Anyhow, thanks for the listing,
    -Curtis
