VPS Under 5 Dollars – $20/Year 128MB OpenVZ in Kansas City/Germany

Tags: , , , Date/Time: November 23, 2010 @ 1:25 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 Under 5 Dollars Josh from VPS Under 5 Dollars/VPS Squad emailed me about their special offer — VPS under 20 Dollars per Year! Here is what you can get for $20/year:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 5GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

That’s equivalent to $1.67/month. You can choose from either Kansas City MO (only 8 available — sign up link), Germany (only 10 available — sign up link) or Denver CO (only 6 vailable — sign up link). They seem to be buying servers from all over the place, as the locations are different from their last month’s feature here. VPS Under 5 Dollars runs by the same guys behind VPS Squad which has been known as AMH Network before (assuming they haven’t changed hands). Australia-based business.

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.

  2. Compared with $15/year offerings from BuyVM and YardVPS, this one seems a bit lower on data transfer, right?

      Quite a bit lower I’d say, 10 times lower.

    • Yes. That makes the difference between a low traffic blog site and a low traffic image site.

      From the website: “IRC clients are only possible in Denver and Netherlands but no IRC Servers”.
