Igor from VDS6 emailed me an interesting offer today. It’s FreeBSD — it uses BSD jail rather than hardware virtualization to get FreeBSD 8.2 running on amd64 platform. It’s also IPv6 only, although the website itself does exist on IPv4 so you can still browse and make purchase on the v4 network. Their low end offer “v128” is $1.95/month and it has
- 128MB memory/128MB swap
- 2GB storage (not including system files)
- 100GB/month data transfer
- 5x IPv6
Payment in either PayPal or Webmoney (Z). Servers with Hetzner in Germany (test IP: 2a01:4f8:150:1102::ffe). Domain was created in October 2011 so there isn’t any review out there. The fact that it’s FreeBSD + IPv6-only would ensure it stays as a niche product. IPv4 wasn’t even an available purchase option when you sign up.
