    >2 IPv4 (IPv6 available in LA upon request – IPv6 coming soon in Phoenix and NL)
    As expected, only 1 IPv4 is included, not two! The second IPv4 is an additional $2/year.

      You get the extra IP when you open a Support Ticket.

      They provide pretty good services. The server I have (for almost two years now) is reliable the support answers are rather fast.
      In just one point I’m disappointed: IPv6.
      I want to remember to last years offer (https://lowendbox.com/blog/vmbox-co-ssd-cached-vps-offer-nlus/) “IPv6 coming soon in Phoenix and NL”).
      In March I opened a support ticket asking for progress and ETA. The answer was more or less “It’s beta and not useful” a few months later I asked again. The answer was, that no progress has been made.
      Now, half a year later, they announce another offer. (Which is still great, no doubt) and they sey, again, IPv6 would be coming soon.
      The standard has been there for over 20 years now. Nowadays many users have the ability to use IPv6 but there is no progress.
      That’s a bit disappointing.

      • We have our own IPv6 subnets but singlehop are being useless with it and can’t/have no interest to get it working.

    The Amsterdam Location is 4$ for me. Actually a pretty good offer when you keep in mind that you get 4vCores.

    • Do you have any uptime stats to back this up? We monitor all nodes and reach 99.9% regularly each month.

    So vps.vmbox.co appears to be down, as well as a selection of the vps hosted in the amsterdam data center.
    no outage notifications are up, no response to tickets, the blog and twitter account haven’t been touched in years.
    the network status however shows “all servers up”
    i’m coming up for renewal from last year’s offer. I don’t think i will be renewing.

    • We apologise for the short downtime. I assure you this isn’t a regular occourance. SingleHop messed up our vlan when adding new nodes to the mix in NL. I woke up to down alerts at 2:17am GMT and immediately logged a ticket which had to be escalated to director of net ops for him to fix.

      On a side note we will soon have our first KVM node operating out of Netherlands. So look out for that.

        I will wait for KVM. OpenVZ doesnt do the job for me (I need to run mongodb). Still ,pretty good offer.

    • We’ve provided Singlehop with our IPv6 subnets and they have announced them but seem to be having issues with UDP connections. They’re trying to fix this for us, we’ll update customers when get some progress on this.

  14. Skyrider:

    “Please confirm you’ve read all emails regarding services with us and located the control panel information and how to apply for SSLs correctly? If not this ticket will be chargeable at $25.”

    That’s just plain stupid to charge for a ticket.

      The charge is to make you guys read the tos before asking nonsence. Their service has been excellent and have been with them for 3 yrs.

      They even let me off multiple times with warnings when i kinda caused problems for them.

      If this is not the best vps provider..i duno who is

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.
