VPS Squad – $83.87/Year 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: May 17, 2010 @ 12:45 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated February 2011: VPS Squad and its sister site VPS Under 5 Dollars both disappear off the Internet on 19 February 2011. The business has already cancelled its registration and I don’t think they are coming back. FAIL.

VPS Squad Via this WHT offer. I just figured out that you can buy VPS Squad‘s premium LA VPS for $83.87/year, by using the coupon code 45OFFLIFESALE. That’s roughly $6.99/month and you get

  • 256MB guaranteed/384MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Being in LA means good connection to Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and they have release Ubuntu 10.04 LTS image for their OpenVZ VPS (it’s been out for 3 weeks why aren’t more VPS providers supporting it?!) A bit of information about the company can be found in my previous post. VPS Squad by itself still seems to be pretty new — probably too new for me to prepay something for a while year.

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.

  1. Apparently, the coupon code works for monthly payments as well but VPS Squad doesn’t seem to be offering any control panels.

    • I’d call that spam. Especially for hijacking another Post like that.

        • Sorry about that. We just had a spam run with our clients that almost looked exactly like that copy. Knee jerk reaction. Plus running on about 3 hours of sleep. Should have hovered over the user name to see the link as well.

          Feel free to delete and sorry again.
