LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Vixile – $7 256MB OpenVZ VPS Exclusive Offer

Tags: , , , Date/Time: July 29, 2010 @ 7:42 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated February 2012 — Vixile’s website has been giving errors since 25 January. Looks like the team there has done a runner.

Vixile Via this offer at LowEndTalk. Caleb actually also wrote to me in email a few hours ago but they posted them on the forums anyway. Use promo code LowEndBox to get the following offer for $6.95/month.

  • 256MB guaranteed/2048MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are in their Chicago datacenter. Their website traceroute to Coloquest so I assume the servers are also located there. Their plans are also Fully Managed according to their VPS page, which includes “hardware management, network management, operating system and software support, proactive security patches and updates, proactive monitoring, firewall, spam prevention, server hardening and more”. Not too sure about their network though, as their network status page is still broken at the moment.

Digging into the company makes me confused. According to WHOIS the domain was registered in Feb 2009 to Falecto Solutions in Norway. Well, then OdishaHosting claimed purchasing it from Falecto in June 2009 — although the WHOIS info stays unchanged?! Doing a quick search on Vixile at Google reveals that they are hitting a new marketing campaign starting from around 20 July (lots of posts/PRs on blogs and forums). Has something changed there?

And Caleb, the 15 year old “Make Money Online” blogger and “promotion staff” at Vixile, was singing praises about Vixile as a customer just last week. Did “Vladimir” just hired him for his good review? Or his experience in selling or starting hosting companies? Not to mention Falecto also joined the discussion, and even posted some Vixile deals himself.

Anyway. Vixile.com has pretty good design. Cheap price. Just need someone more adventurous to test it out for us :)

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.

  1. “256MB guaranteed/2048MB burstable memory” the burstable memory is much higher than other offers

    Bigger burstable is a common practice right now. I have a VPS with 512 MB guaranteed but get 4096 MB burstable, which I never use because my website only running about 300 to 400 MB :)

  4. Why so much Burst RAM? I doubt you would be able to actually obtain that amount of Burst RAM.

  5. Hey Guys,

    After I made the good review, and loved Vixile’s service, I applied with Vladimir to become a part of his promotional team. And he decided to hire me.

    I hope you guys understand that.

  8. Hello people,

    Most of you are aware of the recent updates in the hosting industry. During the time when Vixile first existed, then we used the amazing controlpanel “HyperVM” to maintain our VPS’s. Unfortuantly, we got hacked due to the exploit in HyperVM and where forced to shut down.

    Vladimir, Vixile’s new owner and partner has given it life and is now back up and running. Odishahosting wich aquired Vixile, bought the clients itself. Both “Falecto” and “Vladimir” is now working and own the brand Vixile.

    I hope this clear up some confusion.

  9. I talked with Vladimir. Looks like he is doing good. But haven’t tried it yet. Maybe in the future… ;)

    @Falecto
    Can you provide legit prove that it was exploits in HyperVM caused you guys to be hacked? Or is this another case of piss-poor password management? Feel free to contact LxCenter (http://lxcenter.org/contact) with your findings. There still are plenty of VPS providers running HyperVM at the moment and I don’t see anyone getting hacked. Last big WHT thread was the Santrex thread, and again, they seems to failed at providing legitimate proves.

  11. Hello,

    We had a 24 characther password with random charatchers available on the keyboard. Including special keys. There was no way that our password could have been “stolen” or guessed. All our passwords has always been as secure as possible with the higest possible combination.

    I never posted about our incident on any forums, i never gained any proof or collected anything what so ever at that spesific time. I did some internal investigation, and from what i could find, then someone was logging into our server trough a server provided by iWeb, besides that i don’t have any spesific information. But it was under no circumstances due to lack of password security on our side.

    HyperVM is now open source and is taken over by a team instead of by a single person. Even tho, HyperVM might be full of featuers and a good software, but at this point we decided to use SolusVM for the professional “look” they seem to have.

    Thanks,

  12. @Above – No matter how strong your password is, it can still be cracked.

  13. Awesome website design. I know I focus too much on that, but I just love seeing a host that puts so much care into their design. It reflects their quality. As well, the plans vs pricing is really really good. Might want to give these guys a shot one day.
