  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 20GB storage
  • 250GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in either Equinix in Germany (test IP: 80.83.123.200), or Joe’s Datacenter in Kansas City MO (test IP: 208.94.241.226). They seem to have only 1 server in each of the locations, according to their Pingdom status. They are also planning to expand to Netherlands, Phoenix AZ and probably UK next year. Big plans — but we will need to wait and see whether it can be carried out. They were previously known as boxSrv (who had a website template fiasco back then), and has now “rebooted” with a new name and new design.

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.

    Thanks for the listing LEA. Our US servers are with Whole-Sale-Internet however not Joes DC, we did host our master there but we have re-located that to Amsterdam, NL. And we currently have 3 nodes in each DC, we have only just started pingdom to test the waters before we trust them to monitor everything. I have found that there are sometimes interruptions shown on pingdom, even though im logged into the machine via root with no problems :S

      Pingdom is very accurate. Maybe your firewall blocked some of their IPs or there are connection issues on your servers.

    • Hello oblivioner. The only reason we dont offer annual plans just yet is because we are relatively new (Under the VMPort name at least)

      So we did not think there would be much interest in annual plans. If you get in touch with our support by either submitting a ticket emailing supportdesk@vmport.com we would be happy to arrange something for you, just ask to be dealt with by me personally :)

    its look not like own equipment (“Our technology is situated in a private suite — a particular separated area — in the Equinix data centre, Dusseldorf, one of the most up-to-date and most secure IP-data centres in Germany.”), the ripe database tell us a different, they are using rented servers from a equinix reseller:

    I purchased a VPS at vmport.com. I am not satisfied.. Their website is currently down due to Bandwidth Limit Exceeded which is unprofessional, and clients are not able to get in touch with their support team in case of any issues. Their control panel however is online and working.

    I choosed Debian 6.0 64BIT however it is a 32BIT version. Even if I re-install the OS, I still get 32BIT and not 64BIT as it’s indicated.

    I cannot recommend vmport.com.. I am asking for a refund as soon as their website is online and I can contact them. Such a shame, cause their pricing is really good.

  10. Yes we had problems with our website (We set our own bandwidth limit to low) i think the posting here took traffic through the roof. Everything is fine now and has been since this morning. Thanks for pointing the template issue out the company we purchased them from claimed them to be x86 and we haven`t had any reports of problems until this. We have discussed this with Roberto and his refund has been issued, sorry for any inconvenience caused. No servers were effected by the problems.

    We also half way through setting up our Phoenix boxes as we speak :D

    I must say that this company have quite simply blown me away today. Site was up and running within minutes and when I had a slight problem The ‘CEO’ of the company contacted me personally within minutes of raising a ticket and has helped talk me through some initial problems I had installing packages onto my new server.

    Problems regarding my own level of expertise not technical ones I have to add.

    Where on earth can you get service to that level now days?

    Can not recommend them enough!

  17. Here is my review about them, which you can use as a reference:
    http://www.96mb.com/96mb-low-end-vps-review-part-xxviii-vmport/

    I think the performance of the VPS is just average to be honest, but the service is definitely very very impressive, the documentations they have are great as well!

      Cheers,
