VPS R Us – $6.80 OpenVZ VPS with 128MB

Update: VPS R Us no longer services VPS but spammy content.

VPSRUS.comVia this offer at WHT, VPS new start up “VPS R Us” has 20% off coupon for August for their VPS servers, which makes their low end plan “Entry R Us” $6.80/month. It’s an OpenVZ VPS with the following spec:

  • 128MB guaranteed / 256MB burstable
  • 10GB storage
  • 75GB monthly data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses

DC in Infomart, Dallas and One Wilshire Los Angeles. You need to use the code “aug20” to get the 20% discount. LxAdmin is offered as a free option so I guess it would be HyperVM based. The spec looks good and they are guarateed to have you on a Quad core system — although on OpenVZ seeing all the cores does not mean the provider won’t limit your CPU usage with the cpulimit parameter. Here’s also a list coming out from my “dodgy meter”:

  • Domain registered 2 weeks ago.
  • Self-signed SSL certificate on the ordering page.

Certainly a quick launch — not sure whether they will also attempt to find a quick exit like the FiveMinuteVPS and VPS Empire.

  1. Hey there, thanks for the ping!

    Here are a couple things to clarify:
    1. CPU usage is equal share, we don’t limit unless you hog and leave other users to roast
    2. Our SSL Certificate issue was fixed and is in accordance and verified.

  2. Just got a chance to revisit this post. Looks like VPS R Us is now “Vertical Promotional Services R US” with spams everywhere. FAIL.

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.
