LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

VPSCheap.net – $3.99 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Chicago

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 30, 2011 @ 3:00 pm, by LowEndAdmin

VPSCheap When I first received email from Mike at VPSCheap.net, I thought “C’mon?! Haven’t I featured you guys just 3 weeks ago?! Don’t you know the rules?” Then I found out that it’s actually a different company with a different TLD! So this VPSCheap.net also charges more than twice as much for a VPS with the same amount of memory — but with more disk space and unmetered bandwidth. For $3.99/month you get

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 10Mbps unmetered bandwidth
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

PayPal only it seems. Use promo code LEB50off to get 50% off for the first 3 months. Servers with FDC Server in Chicago (hence cheap unmetered bandwidth). Domain registered in February 2010. Having the pair of NS running on the same physical server.

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.

    • What? You expect that these providers actually read, remember and understand the marketing copy on their websites? I think by now we’ve proven a number of times that that isn’t going to happen.

    Bad experience –
    * control panel died
    * Instances randomly stall
    * password does not work for control panel

    And worst of all, it seems they have very high latency for support tickets. 5 days since I lodged ticket regarding the password issue, and still no response.

    Although we should not expect too much from such cheap service, a working control panel is at least.

  12. I picked up the 128 meg deal, and it was not quite enough for mysql/php/lighttp (at least not with my limited understanding of web server optimization, which is kind of why i started small) I upgraded to the 256 meg plan and after a couple days doing some research I was able to get a really awesome web-server configured.

    The machine is responsive, the pings are great, overall best bang for the buck I have found.

    Thanks.
