LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

UnmanagedServers - $5/Month 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Kansas City

Michael, from UnmanagedServers, has sent in his first ever offer for LowEndBox readers.


  • 256MB RAM
  • 256MB vSwap
  • 20GB Diskspace
  • 1 CPU Core
  • 1TB Bandwidth
  • 100Mbps Port Speed
  • 1 IPv4 Address
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • $5/Month –  Order Link
  • Location: Kansas City (with DataShack)

As we mentioned above, this is the first time we have listed UnmanagedServers on LowEndBox. Whilst their domainname has only been registered for less than a year, they’ve apparently been in the hosting industry since 2010. According to Michael, their parent company,’Shovenet’, “is going to be LLC’d in May, 2013.” Shovenet appears to be an umbrella website for several sub-brands which are going to be or have been launched. Michael has an account on LowEndTalk which you may want to have a look at before purchasing. As this is a new company, please share your reviews below.

At present, UnmanagedServers are only accepting payments via PayPal. Whilst they do not have a refund policy, Michael informs me that each request for a refund, through a ticket to the billing department, would be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Porn, Spam, Malware, IRC, hacking and piracy are not allowed. For more information on what is and what isn’t allowed, you may want to view their Terms of Service.

    In my opinion by the way the owner of unmanaged servers talks on LET, he seems very immature, he posts random offtopic crap, he rages in all caps. I would personally not suggest using this company.

        Should definitely look through the forums for his posts before you consider his services.

        • I personally think you should try out the service before making judgements about us. But you are certainly allowed to think what you think!

    The shopping cart checkout page doesn’t have an SSL certificate. Do you really expect people to enter their personal details (name, address, password) on an unencrypted unsecure page???

        • What?
          I was trying to be appreciative,
          and I never say anywhere I will pay anybody. It would simply be a thank you to being a loyal customer.
          That doesn’t mean all my customers can come here and get account credit, that’s not how it works.

    Would not recommend. Probably the most unprofessional host out there.

  6. Hello,
    I didn’t think this was going to be listed so I changed a couple bits of pricing on our site. This may cause some confusion.
    Please use promo code: “LEB-1-16-2013” it is a recurring promo code for 25% off. Then it will be actually even cheaper than the $5/month in the title.
    Thanks for listing us at LEB.
    I will constantly review these comments and comment on anything I need to.
    Also any feedback to improve our service is appreciated.

  7. See also their dedicated service. Unmetered and 2TB harddrive for $50/month. Fairly cheap. If I needed more power, I’d consider it.
