Up2VPS – $6.95 512MB Xen VPS in Seattle or Scranton

Tags: , , , , Date/Time: August 29, 2011 @ 10:39 am, by LowEndAdmin

Up2VPS Here is a new offer from Up2VPS. They have resigned their website and used those fancy slider to pick the VPS plan (and look completely different from LoveVPS. Oh wait they now both use a slider). Their previous OpenVZ VPS offer is still available — 1GB/1.5GB memory, 40GB storage and 1TB/month data for $4.99/month (direct sign up link). VolumeDrive/Scranton was all sold out but they do have Seattle WA stock on that.

They have also got their Xen VPS stocks, and “Xen20” at $6.95/month gives you

  • 512MB memory/1024MB swap
  • 20GB storage
  • 1TB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

Here is the related WHT offer post. Payment available in PayPal, AlertPay and Google Checkout. Servers in either Scranton PA with VolumeDrive (test IP: 173.242.122.155) or Seattle WA with Sentris (63.223.120.1). Up2VPS has been around since 2009. You’ll probably find Daniel from Costa Rica answering all your inquiry here.

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.

    Would advise to stay away, their servers take nearly two to three hours to install cPanel DNS only!

    They always spam your mail box!

    Been with them for a bit over a month.

    Great deal. Using the 2GB VPS for a Minecraft server and some light streaming and it works beautifully.

    Hoping that they get stock in LA so I can move from Seattle over there, though.. not because of any issues but simply because I’d like one closer to me.

    I’m quite happy with these guys. What they lack in English grammar they more than make up for with good service and support. My VPS has been rock solid and performance is better than I expected.

    I’m on a Xen box out of Seattle.

    Absolutely Do Not purchase any services from this company. Their operation is borderline fraud.

    UP2Vps advertises a 99.9% uptime guarantee, yet in reality the amount of uptime is more around 50% or less.

    I was only with them for 1 month, but that was enough. Within that month, I experienced complete inaccessibility to my Vps near 3 times a week, and much more often I would experience general server instability. Within that month I received 5 emails mentioned 5 different issues explaining instability with services. When I later detailed all the bad service I was getting, presenting evidence of said emails and requesting at minimum a month of free service, I was promptly denied. In fact, the whole issue was marginalized by UP2Vps, and I was even recommended to terminate my account if I didn’t like the service I was getting. They even denied I was encountering bad service by stating I wasn’t even on the nodes effected. I was shocked with how terrible the customer service was.

    Near the tail end of this, server performance actually stabilized, so against my better judgement I decided to pay them and stick around for another month. Bad Mistake. I paid by paypal, and according to paypal my payment went through successfully to their 3rd party who handles payments, 2checkout. I got a message the next day claiming that in fact my payment didn’t go through, and that 2checkout flagged my payment as fraud. UP2Vps stated that I will receive a refund soon. I quickly replied and explained that I never had this problem paying by paypal before, and that paypal stated the payment was made successfully to 2checkout. I submitted a ticket to 2checkout inquiring about the issue and the status of my refund. I relayed this back to UP2Vps.

    Figuring UP2Vps is aware that I’m trying my best to pay them, and working out the situation with 2checkout, I figure they will cut me some slack and not disable/terminate my account for a late payment, especially considering all the poor service I have received. Wrong. My account got suspended the day after the payment was due. I sent an email asking why they suspended my account when I already stated I’m doing my best to work out the issue with 2checkout. I even asked if there was another way I could pay them, possibly even paying them directly with paypal. I remarked how this issue further stained their terrible service record. I got an idiotic, snarky response from UP2Vps threatening to terminate my account because I apparently complain too much. I sent them a heated, blunt reply. Least to say my account is terminated now, essentially for complaining too much for the incredibly horrible service I received. As of yet I have received no refund from 2checkout (it has been 2 days since I submitted a ticket).

    UP2Vps are con artists. Do Not give them a penny under any circumstances.

    I have a question, if I buy a server with lets say 1GB of RAM, can I upgrade that server to 4 GB of ram later without the need to get a new server, have to backup all my files and all that other stuff?
