UBHosting.net Via this WHT deal. UBHosting is a Toronto based hosting company running its own equipment since 2004 (i.e. good sign). It has some VPS plans, although the cheapest one, UBH-VPS Mini, is not available on their website and you need to use the link from WHT to order it (for this week only). For $4.99/month, you get

  • 128MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • HyperVM / OpenVZ
  • CentOS / Debian / Fedora Core / Gentoo / OpenSUSE / Ubuntu

No words on “guaranteed” vs “busrstable” memory. However as it’s OpenVZ + HyperVM based, we’ll assume it takes HyperVM’s recommendation to give twice amount of guranteed to burstable memory, i.e. 256MB.

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. FYI, I signed up for this last week and I have to say that I am very impressed so far.

    Prompt setup and the VPS has been very snappy, in fact it even “seems” faster than my dedicated server but I haven’t really run any tests.

    In addition I’m fairly impressed with the network performance as well; I’m pulling > 1.4 M/s from Toronto to LA. I had a VPS located at Burst that did much worse.
