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.

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.

  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.
