LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Veeblox – $3 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 8, 2009 @ 12:21 pm, by LowEndAdmin
Updated March 2009 — as expected, Veeblox.com is dead.

Veeblox Here is another new host with newly registered domain name — which hopefully the readers here know what I meant :) Veeblox has a few economical VPS offers, and the cheapest one being only $3/month (Micro VPS). You get:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses

No words on the virtualization technology, which I presume to be OpenVZ. IP address of their website is with Peer1, and hosted in UK. You can pay monthly (which I guess $3 will easily be eaten away by processing fees), and there’s 99.9% uptime + 30day money back guarantee…

Yeah. Whatever. Their web pages are full of mistakes (“Shared Linux Hosting Packages” in VPS page? 120MB burstable to 96MB?). Anyone wants to give them a try? :)

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.

    Fortunately that my VM still runs well on their server. I hope they can survive a little bit longer… at least till my $3 expire… :)

    this is what i got…

    Hello,

    My name is Jacob and I understand you used to have Veeblox hosting for a web host. You may have noticed your VPS down lately. This is because Veeblox has disappeared. We are going to offer you the opportunity to get your data back, would you like that? Please reply back within 24 hours, after that we will delete the data.

  9. Hello everyone,
    Veeblox completely dissapeared. At this point we contacted everyone we could (all four of you who had VPSs) — we have removed all the VPSs now, and the server has been formatted.
    Let me know if we can do anything for you!
    Jacob
