The New York NOC Here is one weird promotion by The New York NOC on WHT, for new signups only. Here is an excerpt from the promotion:

For this week only, we are offering a BOGO sale!

Buy any of our super vps plans, get a 2nd one free of equal or lesser value!

If I understand it correctly, that means you pay $3.95/month (prepaid for at least 6 months) for a Super Tiny VPS (reported previously here), and you can get another one for free! One low end VPS is never enough — now you can have TWO!

  • 256MB memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 500GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

A few things you can do with 2 small VPS:

  1. Resell it to your mate for $4/month and makes a profit!
  2. Make one production and one development/staging box
  3. Web head + database server
  4. Set up load balanced clustering
  5. Create a data redundancy setup with DB replication between the two

The possibility is endless!

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. That’s if they’ve sorted out their packet loss issues…

  2. @CryptWizard — for sure! I am running an Cacti instance elsewhere in US, and my VPS at The NY NOC is dropping packets like crazy…

    So, what is your experience with them, now? Have the problems resolved or is it possible to live with them?

    Their prices seem to be the best of all I see here on lowendbox; I think of using their service, but hesitate because of the problems you mentioned.

    I mean, even without the bogo sale their offer still looks very good. And they seem to offer very nice perfomance also:

  5. @Nickolai — their network is a not that good, and supplied resolving DNS is not working for me either (and the support is not that helpful in this case, so I have to use OpenDNS instead for my /etc/resolv.conf). I am not running any high bandwidth stuff — just a few Jabber bots, but they have to be reconnected every now and then.

    The performance is great *most of the time*. However every now and then you’ll have IO wait issue that can drive your entire VPS crazy.
