VirtUK – £3.60 Xen VPS in UK

Tags: , , Date/Time: January 4, 2010 @ 11:53 pm, by LowEndAdmin

VirtUK.com Via this WHT offer. VirtUK is a new UK-based virtual server provider and they are having their launch specials using the promo code WHT to get 10% off recurring discount. Their base plan “VUK-128” is now £3.60/month after the discount.

  • 128MB memory/256MB swap
  • 10GB storage
  • 150GB/month data transfer
  • Xen/SolusVM

According to their network page, they colo their servers with UKServers.com in Bluesquare DC. Their website looks pretty honest. The plans come with “Basic Management”, and according to their management page (yes, they do have one!) it includes “Initial security hardening, monthly operating system updates and monthly control panel updates”.

Although info is provided in WHOIS, but googling on the address shows that it’s probably just some business center/virtual office address used by everyone else. DNS is a bit flaky — two NS are on the same box, and the IP of NS themselves are not resolvable.

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.

  2. Nah. You have to turn around. It’s the “Daws Lane Business Centre” on the opposite of the road. Sounds like a virtual office to me.

  3. Dang, you noticed that. :)

    Actually if you turn around at the gasoline station, there’s a sign labeled “Systems House” which is listed as a “Computer Hardware Specialist”. That’s my bet as to what we’re supposed to be looking for.
