LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

TheNYNoc – $21/3 Month OpenVZ VPS with 256MB

TheNYNOC Via this WHT offer. The NY NOC has recently been acquired by Steadfast Networks. They are now back on budget virtual server hosting, and has released some new packages — including their “Super Duper VPS” at $21/3 months or $60/year. You get:

  • 256MB guaranteed memory
  • 2GB storage
  • 500Gb/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ

You get to choose between Chicago or New York data center. Chicago being Steadfast’s home base. On the WHT offer page there is also a coupon code DOUBLEPREPAY that doubles the length of your prepay. For example if you opt for $60/year, you will get 2 years instead, which makes this deal very generous.

I have used The NY NOC before for a year, and it was okay. They used HyperVM before but not sure whether it has been changed. Hopefully by moving to Steadfast infrastructure it would be much better.

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.

    I had a VPS with NYNoc – reliability was good but my IP address changed 3-4 times in 1 year.

    My current VPS is offline as I dont know the new IP address as they just changed everything.

    this is quite nice deal. for $60 u can get 256MB Ram for 24 months (with coupon doubleprepay) or $2.5/mo. but after 1 year, there might be many providers sell higher specs for the same price. and this offer will no longer the best.

    i guess i am not ready for this long term (2 years) commitment. LOL. I expect some other better deals coming soon. that’s why we keep visiting LowEndBox.Com because we always expect there are some nice deals coming up.

    LEB admin, how about writing an article regarding market trend in low end vps? haha.

  3. What market trend?! Things get cheaper, beefier, etc every year. But the low end market is still a mixed bag of shady operators (but some really good providers).

    I’ve had a VPS with them for a couple years; the service was always cheap, but extremely unspectacular. The migration of some hosts to new hardware after the Steadfast purchase went horrible; they screwed up pretty much everything they touched.

    My VPS – which is about $5/mo – has four 250MHz CPU slices, and constantly runs at a load of 1.5-2.5 because of obscene i/o wait, which has only gotten worse since the Steadfast acquisition and transfer to new hardware. It’s kind of absurd, really.

    Also, per /proc/user_beancounters, my “numproc” is now just 75, and my “numfile” is 1800, both of which I regularly run up against with very annoying results.

    You can definitely do better elsewhere, IMO.
