LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Thrust::VPS – $5.05 US and £4.21 UK VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , , , , Date/Time: July 9, 2010 @ 10:35 pm, by LowEndAdmin

Thrust::VPS Rus from Thurst::VPS has sent me an exclusive offer to LowEndBox readers, where you can get 15% off recurring discount when coupon code LOWENDBOX is applied. That means for their US OpenVZ VPS (Los Angeles, Dallas, New Jersey) it’s now starting from $5.05/month and their UK OpenVZ VPS is now starting from £4.21/month (~USD$6.34). Do note that you need to change the currency to GBP before adding package to the cart, as it has much inflated GBP to USD on their site. You will get the following package

  • 512MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Thrust::VPS has been adding quite a bit of features lately, including free 1GB backup space and private IP address for unmetered inter-VPS traffic within the same data center.

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 tried, comes the result.

    XEN RAM 512 PV, this plan only get one cpu core, the VPS provider will not tell you this.

    @Terry. We will if you ask it. Our plans are stage that the more you pay the faster the VPS will go and making sure that someone who is on a low end plan can’t bring a machine to its knees seems a responsible approach to me

    Yes, I agree.

  5. Hi Rus,
    Could you please explain more about Private IP? How does it work?

    It means that i will point domain to Private IP, right?

  6. @Rus. When will the Xen.la was available for sell?

  7. Rus:

    @Minh Private IP’s are for free date transfer between two VPS in the same datacenter so you could have an private MySQL server

    @vpsbeta 3.xn.la.damnvps.com went live today and its about another 2-3 before software installs etc are complete

  8. @Rus. Good news. Hope it will available asap.

    After several days test on different software, the benchmark scores may be not look so good, but have good stability on each of them, the result won’t show me a suprised result, just keep at almost same level, so limit to different plan from using some idle cpu resource, also limit others to use yours cpu resource if they don’t over sell.

    @Terry: Final score of 83 is awful.

    @Anonymous – Bear in mind that Terry benchmarked a XEN vps using an ancient version (4.1) of UNIX Bench.
    I am sure the score would be much higher if he used the current version (5.12) from: http://code.google.com/p/byte-unixbench/

    UnixBench is well known for giving extremely low results for Xen VPS in general when compared to OpenVZ ones.

    Hope this helps :)

  13. Terry:

    But I compare to all my VPS in Xen. And another thing is that, the redis benchmark is almost same with another VPS I had, but get unixbech 4.1 about 200, so it’ really depend on different application, the nginx benchmark result shows almost the same ration compare to another 512 MB Xen plan, You got to check it out by yourself, I just shared the result, another good thing is the network bandwidth is also stable and fast enought compare to same level VPS provider.

    I’ll post the 5.1.2 benchmark result later.

    The problem with using Unixbench is that there’s so many versions and variations out there…

    About Unix 5.12 Scores : I have two 128MB Xen VPS,1st one has access to a Core of a Core2Duo 2.2GHz,2nd one has access to 4 AMD Opteron Cores 2.2GHz)

    Unix Bench Score :
    1st VPS =370
    2nd VPS : Single Core 339 , MultiCore = 694.

    Your Scores seems to be a little Low.

    I just took the risk and moved two servers to these guys. I bought a “Aquatic – 512MB RAM” in LA (replacing a PRGMR.COM 256MB VPS), and a “Mystic – 1GB RAM” in Dallas (Replacing a Linode512). My reasons for moving have been primarily centered around more bang for the buck. Performance has been consistently strong and the network stable. I’ve opened two support tickets were both responded to in [no exaggeration] 2 minutes.

    Only time will tell, but so far so good.

    I just ordered a 512MB RAM Xen PV VPS with Thrust::VPS. With the coupon it’s $6.76 per month.

    I’ll test this out to see how it compares to my more expensive Linode 512 (Xen VPS).

    Here’s my plan:

    Thrust::VPS Aquatic VPS (Los Angeles, CA)
    Xen PV, 512MB RAM, 512MB Swap, 15GB Disk Space, 1TB Transfer
    CentOS 5.5 32 bit

    And here are the Unix Bench (Version 5.1.2) results:

    It looks like a single CPU core is available. On my Linode 512, it has 4 cores available and the Unix Bench results were 410.1/989.2 (run when it was still a Linode 360).

    Thrust::VPS drive performance was good when I tested it.

    hdparm -t /dev/xvda1
    
    /dev/xvda1:
     Timing buffered disk reads:  1110 MB in  3.00 seconds = 369.49 MB/sec
    

    Other initial comments: Ping times to my Thrust VPS are about 30ms higher compared to the speedtest.la.damnvps.com server. The speedtest server has a 66.154.* ip address and my VPS was assigned a 109.169.* ip address, and it gets routed differently for me. Ping times are actually about the same for my LA VPS and the Thrust VPS Texas speedtest server (speedtest.tx.damnvps.com).

    Just got a Xen 512 VPS with them. Provisioned in about 30 seconds, that’s awesome considering I’m switching from Enotch (who, after 40 hours still hadn’t set up my VPS; I gave up). Installing debian 5.0 i386 now, we’ll see how it goes.

    Just a follow up. Everything is still looking good with my Xen Thrust::VPS in Los Angeles, CA. It looks like the routing issue I had initially has cleared up and ping times are the same to the speedtest server and my VPS now (nice and fast), and is within 10ms of my Linode in Fremont, CA.

    Here are some transfer tests:

    Anyone know what their policy is when it comes to late payments and cancellation?… I’m a fan of the policy of pay in advance, if you don’t make payment you are suspended for a certain number of days, then completely canceled. Basically, I like it where if I don’t pay, that’s as good as canceling, no need to give 30 days notice and no late fees. So far I’ve only found one provider that does this.

    I ended up cancelling. It started out good, but the last week has been rough; 15 downtimes totalling more than 8 hours. It didn’t help that after one of the incidents the vps never came back up until I noticed it was down in the morning and restarted it.

    Just tried to order from France (I’m working there this week) with my UK address and it didn’t go through as I’m my IP address wasn’t in the same country as my billing address.

    So far, so fair enough.

    But now my account status is marked ‘FRAUD’ and is all in red!

    Would have been nice to have had a warning or a chance to cancel before being labelled a fraud.

    ;-)

    Never mind. Maybe I’ll try again when I get back to Blighty.
