    $6/month for OpenVZ? Expensive.

    100 GB/month transfer is very small amount, too.

    Honestly, I fail to see how this offer would entice anyone. Props for taking Bitcoin though.

    Yeah it’s too expensive for that kind of specs. I mean it probably works as a product in Switzerland, but not in the LEB market. You should definitely make it at least 500GB. To be honest I think peoples usage behaviour does not change if you offer some more transfer.
    I have a VPS in Zurich (Equinix) already from OneProvider and it’s got 1TB transfer of which I rarely use 20GB. But I like the fact, that I don’t have to think about overusage and additional costs.
    Also, definitely no OpenVZ please. KVM or XEN for full kernel modifications should be available for that kind of money. I don’t want to ask you for any fuse fs or VPN device.

    You get more bandwidth in Asia and South Africa these days, than this.

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.
