Veeble – $5 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Germany

Tags: , , Date/Time: January 4, 2010 @ 12:25 am, by LowEndAdmin

Veeble Saw this company Veeble Web Solutions mentioned quite a few times on WHT, and saw that their VPS plans start at $5/month.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/HyperVM

Servers are probably with Hetzner in Germany. It’s also claime to be “semi-managed” although I cannot find any doco on what is “managed”. The domain is relatively new — registered in October 2009. Moreover it’s a .ORG domain hiding behind domain privacy, which usually spells “dodgy” to me. Both ns1 and ns2 of its main domain points to the same IP address (although `host -t ns veeble.org` shows that it’s using ns3 and ns4 instead).

Another interesting fact is its IP address. Yes it is in Hetzner, but another organisation has registered for that smallish 32 IP address block according to WHOIS.

Yes the same guy who ran Delimiter.us and sold to Yomura Holding a month and half ago. Coincident?

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.

    If you are worried about this being shady then why expose your readers to it by
    featuring this company on your website? :)

  4. @Joe — so you rather NOT have those info exposed to the readers, and let them test the water without some opinion?

    There were many dodgy providers in the past and I’ve raised issues when I saw one.

    Anyway. Giles from Yomura emailed me that he is certain Veeble is not related to neither current nor past Delimiter owners. It’s a client hosting their service on Delimiter’s network.

    I just signed up with them. So far so good. Servers are at hetzner and they are very fast. For €3/month you can’t go wrong.

    They are just telling your custommers that they won’t be arrount the next week, and if they’ve got troubles they just have to wait.
    This isn’t very pro, I am definately not going to buy a vps here!
