LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

VPSBB – $4.95 128MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 16, 2010 @ 1:59 am, by LowEndAdmin
Updated December 2011 — Looks like Andrew from 123Systems might have forgot to update the DNS on this site. VPSBB site went dark on 14 November and will be on dead pool this month.

VPS Bargain Bin Andrew from 123Systems sent me an email yesterday about their latest brand, VPS BB (which I think stands for “Bargain Bin”). Usually you find items with defects in the bargain bin in your local markets but I do hope the offer here would be top notch as it is from 123Systems (multiple locations, not a one man shop, etc). For $4.95/month you will get the following VPS

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 1000GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM
  • Fully managed

This package should have instant setup and the servers are located in Fremont CA. Same company as 123Systems who will be doing the management. Nice minimalistic 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.

  2. He is indeed correct, The name “BB -> Bargain Bin” was chosen more less for the budget priced items you would find in a Bargain bin however, Not for the defects :).

    All VE’s bought from vpsbb will run under the same management/hardware that the ones from 123Systems already run under. This brand was created for the “Instant Setup/Simplistic” feel. Which is why it has one page/one plan. We will never add more pages to this brand but we might possible add another instant setup plan if this one goes well.

    Instant Setup is something we do not provide directly at 123Systems but provide it with this brand (Which also comes with the 123Systems Niches).

    If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Andrew, do the same tos and aup apply to VPSBB as they do at 123systems? I notice the knowledge base and the about status point to 123systems so I just wanted a verification. Thanks.

  9. Hello Daniel,

    Yes the Same TOS/AUP Applies to VPSBB that 123Systems has, VPSBB is owned and operated by 123Systems so you will be receiving the same thing you would receive given you bought directly from 123Systems.

    -Andrew
