TheNYNOC – $5 OpenVZ VPS with 512MB

The New York NOC Thanks to Jerret for sending in this VPS deal at WHT. The New York NOC currently has a $5/month “Super VPS Plan” that comes with:

  • 512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 1,000GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses
  • HyperVM

Yup. 512MB burstable memory — it’s almost too high-end for me. 1TB of data transfer per month?! I might need to set up a zillion blog sites like this to use that up. The DC is actually not in New York but in Los Angeles. You do have to prepay for 12 months though — but for $60/year it’s still a great value.

Actually. The same deal came up on around 10 days ago, and I signed up on the 21st. I also added 256MB more memory for $27.50/year, and it runs Ubuntu 8.04. The setup was pretty quick — 22 minutes for me after paid by PayPal. It has access to a Core 2 Quad Q9300 (i.e. fast), but it’s sitting there idling at the moment, until I can find something for it to do.

  3. @Thodoris – been a customer of theirs?

    TheNYNoc has been in business for many years and has quite a lot of happy customers – sure, there’s always someone unhappy but they’re a decent company.

    Good luck finding a better value for the dollar.

    Regards,
    Jerret

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.
