LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

VMotion IT – €3.50 256MB Citrix Xen VPS in Ireland

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 22, 2011 @ 7:01 am, by LowEndAdmin

Citrix Xen VPS Natalia from VMotion IT Solutions emailed me about their low end VPS plan which they have recently launched at CitrixXenVPS.com. Their Micro VPS plan is €3.50/month (~USD$4.75), which you can order using this direct link. It comes with

  • 256MB memory
  • 10GB storage on RAID1
  • 100GB/month data transfer on 100Mbps
  • 1 vCPU
  • Citrix XenSevrer

Do note that Citrix XenServer is a bit like Xen HVM which allows you to boot into alternate OS, however it seems only CentOS and Debian are offered. Payment in either PayPal or credit card. VMotion colo their servers with Cork Internet eXchange. You can use their website’s IP address (91.103.0.54) for traceroute test. AUP here, and is certainly more oriented towards shared hosting rather than VPS. VMotionIT was founded late last October as a registered company in Ireland, but they have only recently launched the CitrixXenVPS brand, as earliest reference I could find was this WHT post and this tweet from last week. They might have been providing Xen VPS as early as June though under the VMotionIT brand (ref: their VPS forum). It’s owner, Indresh, certainly looks like having quite a bit of experience.

Update — they have sold out all the €3.50 servers. Their new servers are on RAID10 with a more expensive price tag: €4.25/month.

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.

    • I am wondering whether there’s any advantage hosting in Ireland. Obviously for you it’s better to host in UK than in Ireland. No?

        Not much difference. I actually get a better ping to Ireland than London… and London these days any cheap.

        Considering an European audience and datacenter-to-datacenter latency Ireland adds 10-20ms compared to London.

        Legally irelands have some interesting laws that protect the publisher (cf wikileaks story)

        Might be interesting to host there for that (?)
