    Impressed by reviews, can you do a double deal with your tx location for the 128-plans (dns usage)?

    So far it looks interesting. But is this a one man company? I only read about Brendan everywhere. Already got burned once when the sole owner of my former vps got ill and his company went bancrupt in the meantime as no one handled the bills.

    • Hello,

      At the moment, yes. However you have no need to worry about that as a contingency plan is in place.

      Regards,

    Does it support tun/tap and ip forward for openvpn?

    • Yes, TUN/TAP can be enabled. We have many customers running OpenVPN on their VPS.

      • I already setup the openvpn, and then tested to watch the US television.
        The result was not bad, little bit lag when it was on HD. Overall, it was ok.

    100GB Bandwidth is too low.
    Other provides will offer about 500GB with the same price in my experience.

  11. it seems that the setup is manual, I’ll wait and see how it goes =)

    • Hello,

      Setup is automatic however if the hostname or root password you entered are invalid it requires manual verification.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • 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.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
