The NY NOC Via this WHT offer. And The NY NOC is back to the budget VPS hosting scene! They were the one that started this 512MB memory for $5 trend, have “re-adjusted” their price, and is now offering $5/month VPS again provided that you prepay for 12 months. You have to use the order link from WHT’s offer page, and you get

  • 512MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 1,000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

Location is either Los Angeles or New York, when you need to specify when you order. I still have one ordered from late last year. Uptime was great… Until a few days ago where there was an extended outage (something like 18 hours) and my VPS got rebooted. Personally I found the VPS got slower and slower due to high IO latency (someone else is thrashing the disk), and best of luck for using all the data transfer allocated, as the network connectivity has been pretty patchy. They don’t put limit on the CPU though so it has been great doing various process/memory intensive tasks I’ve thrown at it.

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.
