This is the first time vHostLayer have been featured on LowEndBox; hopefully it will be the first of many offers from them. vHosterLayer LTD, were incorporated in the United Kingdom in May 2012. There’s not much out there about them, I only managed to find one “review”, if you can call it that, on digitalpoint. They also seem to be advertising on HackForums, which some may view as a clear indication to stay away. On vHostLayer’s VPS page it states that they offer “Free Server Configuration”; however it is not clear what this includes. They also offer a 99.9% Uptime Guarantee.

vHostLayer accept both PayPal and Credit/Debit cards as payment methods. They offer a full 7 day Money Back Guarantee. You can see their whole VPS range here; they also offer shared and dedicated hosting. As usual, you may want to review their Terms of Services, Acceptable Usage Policy and Privacy Policy.

    That logo (Or at least the server icon) is a rip from another common themeforest template. Wonder if they have the license to use that?

  2. Yes, we do as it was our Old theme before we had everything done.

    The actual price seems to be 3.19 EUR, so the post title(3.40) is incorrect.

  10. Also you posting this, Seem intent on proving something and then a few minutes later our Main site coming under a Dos attack doesn’t really look great on you does it ?

    Well, we see Voxility does indeed have DDoS’ers and other baddies operating on their network.

    Explains the alleged Cogent blocking of Voxility (supported by testing Cogent originated traffic to Voxility that gets handed off or backhauled to other transit providers). Cogent now never directly touches or feeds Voxility directly.

    Shame.

    Wonder if these general issues in my limited testing are why here in the US we can’t any gig speeds to Voxility’s network. (Imagine a lot of networks are throttling and blocking traffic from Voxility).

    And, vhostlayer’s website isn’t loading now…

    • Yes, under a DDoS attack at this time, Also have suspended the booter from our network, As we do not allow Booters. Servers are online just the main site is being attack.

        • I’d love for you to ask any provider I have a VPS with here…

          BuyVM
          LIQUIDHOST
          IPXCore
          Iperweb
          Onepoundwebhosting
          ChicagoVPS

          If they have ever even had an abuse issue with me… Please do.

          You own the booter , it’s quite clear it will be back online soon on another one of your servers I will find it and expose you on here again.

  18. Hello,

    I never considered my comments as “hate comments” . Those were humorous. That’s why I put a “:)” at the end.
    The serious part of this… I would trust a company more if they have an original layout and logo.
    Also I would NEVER go with a web hosting company that I can not find their address on their site after searching for 5 minutes.
    It’s even better to find a VAT ID that I can trace and see that this is a real company.

    I’m sorry if I made some people angry with my comments. That was not my intention.

    Lots of companies use this logo,because they use one script for all, its just more easy than create own personal logo :) – Some previous listed here – http://www.fusioned.net for example.

    • Ashley Hawkridge:

      That’s because fusioned.net is actually using the template that logo comes from.

        Yes,and because almost all vendors is small private resellers,even operate with 2-3 workers,and course not have own logo like a big companies.Tomorrow is out of business and forget it. That’s simple.:)

          Confused :S

          What are you actually trying to say here? I simply stated they are using a logo that’s from another (Paid) theme. Its usually a sign of a design been thrown together by rips, but the OP proved that’s not the case here.
