Updated December 2011 — Well, Ken has switched to a different domain (UptimeVPS.co) and it is now not resolvable. Looks like the deals are too good to be true here.

UptimeVPS Ken from UptimeVPS emailed me last month their “introductory offer” (although Ken also claimed that they have been running for just under a year). With coupon code INTRO2 you can get their Xen VPS plans with 70% off recurring discount. Their “UT-128” would be €1.50/month (~USD$2.17) after the discount. Direct order link here.

  • 128MB memory/256MB swap
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

PayPal is the only payment option. Alternatively, if you are game enough for yearly payment, you can also use promo code INTRO to get the same plan for €9/Year (~USD$13.03, via this WHT offers). Servers with OVH in France. Domain registered in October 2010 by Ken in UK. TOS can’t be found on the site. In fact the info on the site seems to be quite lacking.

Update: Due to Xen routing issue, UptimeVPS has moved to OpenVZ VPS with the following spec at no extra cost (see Ken’s comment here).

  • 384MB guaranteed/768MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer

Ordering link here. This Xen issue would have raised some doubt on the technical competency of this provider…

    “OpenVZ/SolusVM” should it be xen?

  2. Although I do not think that OVH has a good speed linking to my country or U.S. I still wanna get the test ip and maybe test.bin to have a try since the price is great.

    Well i felt adventuros today so i bought the 9 euro plan. I paid with paypal ofc, and the recipent addresse is paypal@utvps.co.uk . Co i checked and that domain is not even registered (utvps.co.uk). So i think this is all a scam. Sadly.

    • It may well be a scam especially when they are using a free website template.

        Matthew don’t be silly, Not everyone wants to get ripped of by spending hundreds on a template.

        • Yeh but is $25 on a theme forest site hard enough to spend?

          Because if you can’t even afford that then why start a hosting company up?

        • Because if you can’t even afford that then why start a hosting company up?

          Cannot afford is different from deliberately choose not to. We have no idea why the said provider is using a free template. However I have NEVER paid for a design after running various websites for 15 years. Somehow it’s just no my priority.

        I don’t think it matters in anyway what kind of template they are using. Also calling them a scam for this is ridiculous.

      • With over 12 years experience in the industry you would expect a Terms of Service, Privacy Policy and an Acceptable Use Policy also.

        I suspect the 12 years experience may perhaps be in the industry of Life.

        Not every provider is setting up orders instantly. I think you should wait at least 24 hours and maybe after it you should worry. And I also think it is a really bad thing, when your VPS is not ready in hours you call them “scam”. Give them a chance and wait until they deliver your VPS!

        • Their using WHMCS, so automated setup is a doddle.

          Saying that, the SolusVM Admin API is even easier.

        • Christian:

          I know WHMCS/SolusVM supports automation. But lot of providers tend to do it manually, because they want to check the orders. Also when a company gets his offer posted on LEB, if the offer is good they will get a “sales boom” and will have problems to deliver the servers so fast.

        • I am actually in agreement with Christian here. I don’t see why people would label a provider “scam” within hours of ordering. While their website rings quite a few alarm bells, I won’t be so hasty putting such label on them (yet).

          Let’s see how things play out in the next 24 hours.

          Well when you summarize all the things that are wrong, it looks clearly to me. I will point whats wrong:
          Free templete
          No ToS
          No Policies
          Paypal email adress does not exist
          Support does not reply to tickets
          Their adresse (62 Portman Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG30 1EA) is in fact a Self Storage Service, so no offices there.

          What more you need to label someone a scam?

        • When they actually scammed you the money?

          Being suspicious does not equate someone to be a scam. The list of fails would surely deter people from buying from them, but you can only technically call someone a scam when they have really scammed you money — which in your case it *might* actually be the case, but we’ll see.

        Hi

        Apologies for the delay, we are currently experiencing some issues with our Xen nodes with IP routing.

        We are more than happy to offer you a OpenVZ Server if you would prefer.

        The specifications would be as follows at no extra cost.

        384MB Memory
        768MB Burstable
        30GB Disk Space
        300GB Bandwidth
        1 IPv4 Address

        Regards,
        Ken
        UptimeVPS.

    Surprised that nobody pointed out that 3 of their 4 name servers is a XenVZ.co.uk vps ;0 (and the same one!)

    Now why would anyone bother setting up 4 name servers for a domain, when 3 of the 4 are the same IP running off the same VPS?

  5. Joe Merit:

    Another fishy thing is that you need a certain post count on WHT to be able to post in the offers section (10 posts). He got to the 10 post minimum by posting short/dumb comments randomly around the board and then immediately posted his offer.

    Seems that the Xen VPS aren’t avaliable anymore. Only OpenVZ one. Also the 128mb ram plan have the same annual price of the 384 one (9€/y). Quite strange, IMO.

        I was gonna say most of the ones Tom has. You also have WorldStream. Lambdanet you will find peers most of these networks directly with multi-10gbps, including OVH, Equinix, Leaseweb, Hetzner.. and many others that arn’t listed here. My suggestion Daniel, dont talk out your ass! There are a LOT of better data centers than OVH, just not as many willing to give away dirt cheap server for all the n00bs and highschoolers to purchase for their game servers (and start-up vps companies). In fact, you will find most of the networks listed a lot better routed than OVH and a lot less crowded. There is a reason OVH is so cheap….

          “In fact, you will find most of the networks listed a lot better routed than OVH and a lot less crowded.”

          Yet most of these networks are on a Very small 10Gbps.

    Hey Ken,

    I am guessing here, but you probably were using bridging when you setup xen, you need to look into using the ‘routing’ option instead of using bridging. Bridging doesn’t work in all setups. Also depends on what dist your using for you node, my suggestion is sticking to CentOS. Its not that hard to setup… just do a bit more research.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Good Luck!

  17. UptimeVPS is adding the following low end plan. However as their post is pretty recent (< 30 days), I won’t post a new entry for them.

    • UT-512
    • 512MB memory/1024MB swap
    • 40GB storage
    • 400GB/month data transfer
    • €3.00/month with Coupon SEPTEMBER.
      Direct sign up link

    Xen I presume as swap memory was stated.

    Hi,
    I’ve tested this provider, I bought him a first server, was ready in less than 2 hours. It works great, tested some hdd performance with a > 16G file (dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=16K count=2048k) the min is 190Mo/s, reading might certainly ve affected by the zeros >3,3Go/s, band with is good, and performance is here, it’s like a real server (no like igxhosting, where going from ssh login to bahs takes minutes….).

    I bought a second server, it was ready in less than 10 mns. It was the VPS ones.

    Just my two cents…

  19. Just bought one 384 (monthly). Setup is almost instant. And I was just confused. On the cart I chose CentOS 6, then the cpanel tells me it’s Operating System: CentOS 5 x86_64 and uname -a tells me this

    # uname -a
    Linux france 2.6.32-042stab036.1 #1 SMP Thu Sep 1 17:06:37 MSD 2011 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

        • Well, I am not sure, because I haven’t used an OpenVZ vps in a RHEL6 node. But if the kernel version is like that, and that /proc/swaps is like you say, then you are using RHEL6 for these OpenVZ 384MB plans right?

    This is really fishy.. we got providers that fail at $15/yr and now to try at 5 euros

    proceed with caution!

  22. Yes some nodes are CentOS 6 with VSwap. Not fishy at all just a business practice to gain solid reputation on support and service. Sorry if some feel this is a scam but we are not selling hundreds or thousands unlike some. I look forward to 6 months to a years time when we prove we are in the market for the long hall.

    With regards to the site, would you rather a flashy expensive design which gives false illusion into service? Or something that gets the job done? Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither are businesses.

    I’ve purchased a 128M(dedicated, no burst) low end annual plan today. And when I issue a ticket for TUN/TAP issue, I’ve got a quick and kind response. The experience is nice, and the price is brilliant.

    The only pity is the internet link from my locate(CN) to server has a high ping for 4xx-6xx.

    here is some test results on this tiny VPS. :)

    • You said you were not selling hundreds of these packages and now stacked up 280 nos of 384mb package.
      Should we still not be cautious?
      And you took down your own website today for atleast an hour(I only checked for that long trying to buy one). How well would our vps boxes fare?
      I held back my own purchase decision after seeing the new stock. (I m really not worried about loosing 9 euros. Just don’t like that bad feeling and the effort of shifting boxes)
      Honestly, I am not indicationg anything going seriously wrong. However, would love to see your justifiable explanation.

    We’ve deployed more nodes. 9 linux 20 Windows. We also have monthly clientel too so all services and servers are covered. We currently operate dom1 – dom 20 for linux and virtuozzo.win.1 right though to win.20.

    We already have a 5 figure turn over per month, not entirely sure what all the bad heat is about, maybe some substantial facts would like to be presented to myself?! Generally speaking.

    @myco, no sales enquiries I believe. Do you have a ticket number?

      Thats all i get

      Like i said all i wanted to know is if it is ok to run an IRC bot on it to keep the channel where we chant and help people with PCs open. I know a lot of hosts have issues with IRC, tho mostly IRC servers and i am not going to use one of those. Is just something for a crippled ex technician to do.
      Would also like to run a VPN endpoint on it
      Wondered if those things were ok, soon as i get a yes i will hit buy

        • If their using SolusVM, its CentOS 5.6+, and most likely 64bit.

        • Nope, that just shows the Kernel.

          If you got a OpenVZ with the kernel version being 3, then its CentOS 6, or if you have VSWap, its also CentOS 6.

  39. Hi,

    Some nodes are are Centos 6 and some Centos 5

    Just to let everyone know a new site is up, be sure to check regularly on the special offers page.

    We have also added brief network details for the time being. We shall now build on this. 100% Unique.

      Site looks better now. You should start with something like that. Only thing which I still missing are some company.. or whatever real contact infos as “about us” seems like standard more or less useless “we are bla bla…” and “contact” bring us to anonymous whmcs page instead real contact page. If you fix this and show us finally some REAL contact info it would give more credibility to your “company”.

      Oh and another thing.. what’s with this © Copyright 2009-2011 (http://uptimevps.com/index.html) or even more strange © Copyright 1999-2011 (http://uptimevps.com/about-us.html).

      1999 is most likely mistake (left from template?) while 2009 most likely lie to give more credibility to page as even your domain isn’t that old and you give us no reason to believe that you started under some other name before.

    Frankly, so far it is almost too good to be true:
    excellent service
    no unexpected reboot (ok, only 10 days, but I’ve seen daily reboots on many other hosts)
    very good speed (hosting a gallery v2), no slow down
    cpu speed is varying but it is not really impacting real world use.
    all this for the cheapest VPS price one can find so far, all on my favorite network!

Capping the CPU (pretty common in VPS) and unfriendly support (subjective, but again happens all the time in hosting) are probably just you dissatisfaction with this provider, but won’t make them scams?

    Their network is decent too, I got 57.8Mb/s download speed in a test and I am able to max out my connection while testing their upload (640kb/s). VPS is pretty fast overall.

    While it’s too early to say anything as I got it today, as long as they keep this way, I will be their customer. This VPS is for personal torrent/rapidleech and I don’t use it a lot so it basically sits there all day using 40MB memory, but I will probably get another VPS with them soon to host a website, just waiting a little bit to see if there’s no down time and such. :)

    UptimeVPS scammed me and does not honour their TOS. I cancelled my services with them (UT-128) within 4 days and am eligible for a refund as per their TOS. Every email and ticket I raise is met with a template response – “I can assure you your refund has been processed”. I haven’t received a dime yet and its been over 3 weeks now. The excuse each time is “paypal takes 3 days to clear”. Yeah, 3 days .. not 3 weeks!

    do you care to explain why you simply keep deleting my tickets and not respond? Is this the kind of service you provide? I can post screenshots here to prove that you keep deleting my tickets.

    Got 2 of their UT-1024 plans and the vps’s are running more or less perfect.

    VPS located in France = Pings are stable, Bandwidth is consistent, CPU doesnt appear limited. Just wished they offered these deals in Australia :(, through that would be asking to much.

    VPS located in USA = Pretty much the same as my box in France, i noticed my service was slowing down and when i made a ticket they responded quickly and found the problem.

    Their prices are competitive and their constantly getting new servers, I’m glad i found them.

    Hi, does anybody know how to get those vservers reachable from the internet? – I ordered mine some weeks ago, but still have problems reaching it from some locations. If I try to reach my IP via just-ping.com it tells me around 25 locations with 100% packet loss.

    The IP of my vhost is 46.105.166.27. The host is in default installation, and I’ve tried to reinstall it with Debian and Fedora for quite a few times, but that changes nothing.

    Ken @support was not helpful until now; he can ping the host from @home and says it is my configuration. I did not configure ANYthing. Just took the default setup. Outgoing pings work well. Incoming only from some locations. In hosts.deny is nothing listed, fail2ban is not installed. Anybody here who can tell me how to make that VServer reachable after having ordered or reinstalled it?

      I’ve tried to ping your IP from two different locations. 100% package lost.

      Had you checked your control panel for the server status? Make sure the server is up first. And then try to connect to your server through serial console within control panel. Make sure there is no firewall rules or others blocks you out.

      Dan, as far as I can tell, another vps on the same host (ip .25) is reachable just fine as is the host itself (ks212831.kimsufi.com) so I don’t know what is wrong with your vps but certainly something is amiss somewhere.. the other tools from watchmouse.com show that some locations can’t reach you indeed.

      It should just work. You shouldn’t need to do anything to ‘make them reachable’.

      The fact that it doesn’t work from some locations, is purely your upstream’s fault, i.e. either OVH or UP2VPS.

      I can confirm the IP is accessible from one location, but not from another. Traceroutes differ a bit. I can’t seem to post those because of a spam filter or something.

      My wild guess would be that OVH has some sort of load balancing in place, maybe based on sourcedestination IP pair, and it is misconfigured, so for some source IPs it sends the packets down the wrong route (to a wrong dedicated server, as we can see from the kimsufi.com rDNS hop).

      Thank you for your messages!
      In the meanwhile, UptimeVPS support proposed to install a different operating system. I did that but the situation remains the same.

      @openlab: Thank you for testing! Well, the server is up, that’s for sure. Connecting via the serial works. There is no firewall, no hosts.deny entries. It’s just the plain default installation.

      @justmoi: Thank you too, this is a valuable information. So it seems as if something is wrong especially with my server. It could be an option for UptimeVPS to give me just another one.

      @rm: you are absolutely right. I have some traceroutes that end at ks212791.kimsufi.com (188.165.222.147), and others that end before, at vss-3-6k.fr.eu (94.23.122.237). Those that pass through go through vss-3-6k.fr.eu and to ks212831.kimsufi.com (188.165.223.40) which is a completely different host. The hoster kept telling me that it’s a vhost configuration issue and my server is unmanaged, although I’ve sent him the complete traceroutes yesterday in the evening … let’s see what’s his next proposal. Maybe they just have some misconfiguration on their site and need some time to figure it out.

        There is no way these symptomps could be caused by any configuration or misconfiguration inside the VPS, most likely there’s an issue with an upstream router. You can try sending complete details and full explanation of the issue you have directly to https://www.ovh.co.uk/ , but since you are not a customer of theirs, they are free to ignore you.

        From your description of how UptimeVPS is handling this, being shown those traceroutes and still not understanding that they need to raise it with Ovh, shows a lack of competence and desire to b/s the customer instead of solving actual problems.
        I suggest just changing to a different provider and requesting a refund if you can from this one.

        Ask an IP change and you will have fixed your problem. Ken will have to deal with the issue by contacting OVH or discard this IP.. OVH have antiDDoS protections that sometimes trigger for no obvious reason (thresholds needing tweaks).

      Hi, thank you again for your help!

      I’ve asked for an IP change. I got a new IP, but the server did not startup anymore. Then they fixed the vserver, but reset the Ip to the old one again, so the vserver ran but was not reachable anymore.

      Finally they shifted me to another datacenter location yesterday, and since then it works very well.
      Have a nice weekend altogether!

    One thing is for sure – “Setup within 1 hour” is definitely not correct. ;)

    WARNING!!
    DO NOT BUY FROM UPTIMEVPS!
    I have 4 PayPal complaints open with them atm. I had just ordered 2 VPS yearly payment and renewed 1 VPS I paid per month to “quaterly” yesterday; Almost 100 Euros!

    The name on the PayPal is different then 1 month ago and the emails to support@uptimevps.co (and.com) are now bouncing back!

    I will provide screenshots and more information shortly, just wanted to let you and some other places know first.

    DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY!!

      Are you just generally stupid? They have already said they where moving to .co publically.

      Fools like you make no sense.

        Although the emails bouncing are a concern….

          It is not about bouncing emails. I found today that my VPS had been suspended and also I have no access to the client area anymore. The reason for the suspension was “non payment” with a due date of 00/00/0000. I just yesterday extended my already paid month for another 4 months, thus changing my payment to quaterly. At the same time I also ordered and pre-paid 2 more VPS of which one was pre=paid for a full year. I sent them almost 100 Euros per PayPal and as a result, not even one day later, I get suspended and the VPS I use switched off. On that VPS resides one domain with a site I am currently developing i.e. there is no possible scenario for any other reason of my suspension then pure neglegence or fraud on their end.

    They started selling Netherlands nodes as well.I bought one 5 days ago, they are charging me money like I use it, but actually, it hasn’t been activated yet.Strange things going on.
    Also, when I paid money via paypal, it was paid to this email: payment@legrafc.com ??? Web site of some soccer team.Weird!!
    If Ken is reading this – Please activate Netherlands nodes or refund the money so we can buy some other service instead. Thanx

      You have had plenty of time to get IPs, whats the matter? they arent giving you more than 30 per server like
      VMPort said?

      I think it is time you start mass refunding all the suckers like me that ordered an NL vps from you.

      This is hilarious!!Almost 2 weeks after I paid for Netherlands VPS and still nothing.
      They promised to setup some temporary service until their server becomes active, but nothing happened since then.Hopefully,they will refund the money as expected.If not, pay pal will do it instead.

    Please do not give your money to this host – They took my money for a VPS they never provided and wouldn’t
    give it back.

    I’m currently considering my options via paypal. I’m probably going to file a dispute and I recommend everyone
    else do the same.

    They seem to be gone!

    1) Website offline
    2) VPS Nodes offline
    3) SolusVM offline
    4) No reply on support (twitter / msn)

    My german server is still running but thats basicly all! i have no control anymore over the servers
    to see traffic or reinstall the server, creating a backup.

    I would not prefer anyone to deal with this hosting since its a big scam.

    I tried to fill a complaint, but got closed automatically. Called Paypal and they said that if enough persons claim the same seller that they would investigate the case, and maybe get the money back.

    So if you got ripped by UptimeVPS and by paypal make a claim and maybe we’ll get lucky

      How do you call Paypal? I tried reopen a dispute they closed and couldn’t find any other contact details on their website.

      Do these companies deliberately keep contact details off their websites?

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
