VPS-VMBox-Co-VPS-Hosting-Providing-Cheap-Virtual-Private-Servers-in-Netherlands-and-USA 2013-10-21 06-27-52Steven from VMBox.Co sent in an exclusive offer to LowEndBox for a 3GB OpenVZ VPS in either of two locations. And you choose the price you pay: $7/month or just $48/year!

VMBox.Co opened about one year ago and was featured not long after on LowEndBox.com. Back then, they had a Luxembourg location, which they now seem to have closed. They recently opened their new Phoenix location (Singlehop) in addition to their Amsterdam (Singlehop) location, according to their website. Servers are loaded with E3-1230v2 CPUs, battery backed-up RAID and 1Gbps ports.

Steven notes no refunds are given if the VPS is as described during ordering. Gameservers, public VPN, Tor, Torrents, IRC and anything illegal are not allowed, but be sure to also read their Terms of Service and Acceptable Use Policy for more information. Additional IPs are priced at $2/piece and cPanel is available for $12.95/month. Payments can be done via PayPal and Credit/Debit cards through 2Checkout or via BitCoin upon request.

  1. No game servers or IRC? I’m out

      Sorry we couldn’t help. Our DC doesn’t allow IRC and we feel gameservers have a negative impact on a shared environment so have decided to not allow it.

      • Fraud Company, they are writing to us that because of abuse complaint out of 6 VPS what i have with them they have rights to stop all VPS if one is not responded in 24 hrs, there are many data Centers if its not responded depending on serverity extend time frame, as you take with Singlehop they also give 3 days of time, but its just because of your sickness mind u have stopped and not even understanding our concern that we have already resolved abuse issue in time frame but failed to update and hes just playing with my business, BEWARE OF SUCH FRAUD COMPANIES.

      Our Luxembourg servers were transferred to SingleHop’s Netherlands facility and upgraded to RAID10 HDD instead of RAID1.

        Just wonder, why providers discontinue most coolest and rare locations and going back to 1001-th US or NL or DE Money talks, but not for everyone..

        • Steven:

          Hi Lucas,

          The reason we moved was due to the LU DC not providing RAID10 configurations and some network issues we wasn’t happy with.

          Servers were much cheaper in LU; we didn’t move to decrease costs. It was purely to increase stability and performance to provide a better experience for our customers.

          Regards,

    • Steven:

      Hi,

      Seems like you was suspended for CPU abuse, we wouldn’t just suspend a customer for no reason. That would just result in us losing money.

      As for stealing someone’s database, i’d love you for you post the alledged email i sent. Email headers included too please.

      Looking forward to your response.

        Norris who owned Nozhost (advertised mostly on Hacking websites) He’s very rude and doesn’t treat customers like they should be. Also agree with false suspensions of service.

        What am I missing here, a VPS is “dedicated” resources is it not? So how does one use more CPU or ram than is dedicated to it?

    Question for you guys:

    I’m experimenting with cluster computer programming.

    If I were to buy multiple VPSs on the same physical server, will the bandwidth between them count against their individual limits?

        Just curious how many VM’s you put on those E3’s that only support 32GB RAM…

        • Steven:

          Hi Reece,

          Each node will vary depending on resource usage and plans purchased. We don’t have a set number.

          • Nick:

            Again, maybe I am missing something here but your plan CLEARLY states 3gb ram… so if your MAIN server only has 32gb ram, you could only have 10 accounts on the server before its “over sold” – so its no longer a VPS you are now shared hosting.

            October 21, 2013 @ 9:56 pm
      • Ronald:

        That didn’t answer my question.

        Will the bandwidth between two or more VPSs on the same physical machine count toward the bandwidth limit?

        I’m experimenting with clustered databases, and I suspect I can break through 3TB exchanged in a given month.

    I remember Steven hosted NozHost on HF. Hated his competition; hacked/DDoSed his competition to hell. You should have a look on Hack Forums and you’ll see that half of his posts are talking down his competition. Stay away.

  12. Going through the offer details, all the comments & Legal Policies, I think, the VPS will be of no use. How can we expect something bigger in E3-1230v2 with 32 GB Ram alongside Raid-10 Config where as most of the providers have upgraded to E5 Series -_-

      ICMP (ping) from Europe to Phoenix fine – latency 159 ms – ping from Europe to Amsterdam fine latency 59ms (4m/4m DSL) .. If you want a better latency from the Amsterdam box move 3,500 miles across the Atlantic .. 159ms for a box in Phoenix is good ! when you consider it is doing a round trip of 10,000 miles (if you want it in kilometers x 0.58/1 )

    Why does it matter how many 3 gb servers are going to be on 32 gigs server! OpenVZ is going to be oversold just reality. So stop asking or complaining that is going to be oversold if you don’t then how are you going to make money!

    the service gentlemen is first class , the provisioning almost instant – yes Steven seems to have a few people that do not like him , hey that’s life you cannot be friends with everybody , and to be successful in business you have to be willing to lose a few temporary associates along the way .. especially those that want to run ‘rubbish’ websites ..
    before the hate replies start (and from the comments here I can see that they will ) – I am not a friend , colleague or paid comment writer .. I have been in those ‘game hosting environs ‘ and love the Terms of Service’ offered here .. please can you all go back to Michegan and take you zero day exploits with you .. I will continue to drop every know ip from china and parse every script/url prior to execution ..

    good luck Steven ! , your knowledge from your alleged past will help you succeed ,

    I am using this service, it’s gone down multiple times in the last few weeks, down right now actually it seems. When it is up it works wonderfully, however i’m beginning to have my doubts – learning the hard way why open VZ is so easy to oversell and over promise then ultimately under deliver. Good people there it seems, very polite…maybe i’ll try another plan.

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.
