    The link to the $15/year deal is not working at all. Just a page on their site with nothing listed. I want to sign up for that deal but am not able to.

      Sorry about that, Mike. I’m not sure what has gone wrong, but part of the link disappeared. We’ll be sure to do an extra check in the future. Links are now fixed.

    I was able to use the link above and fill out the form but there is no way to finish and pay. There is a dialog box for a promo code and a link button called “go”, but I don’t have a promo code. I am on a android tablet, so that might have something to do with it?

    I have a question regarding ipv6, not specific to this offer. If a host says I get ipv6 /64 addresses, does that mean I get the over 100mill ipv6 addresses? How do I use them on one interface? ifconfig foo bar etc?

    I originally tried to signup using an Android tablet. I was unable to due to the footer on the checkout page hiding the The link button to complete the checkout. Once on my laptop no problem. I have had a few LEB offers over the last few years and I was impressed with everything except the website needs to be more tablet friendly. Other then that I like the service so far. This is an excellent deal.

      At least please update the original post if you really have to make a change.

      Also to lowendbox, please force them to update the post if the vendor makes such changes.

    This listing is wrong, it is only 100mbit not gigabit. I confirmed with support after I was only getting 100mbps speeds.

  27. Stu Dent:

    Keep in mind that on the lower plans, you only get 50Mbps uplink capability (even though physical server is 1Gbps). Only the highest plans can you get 100Mbps or 1000Mbps. This restriction is not listed on the pricing guide nor are you informed during checkout. The CP does not indicate the speed restriction and the knowledgebase does not have an article explaining it either.

    Also, IPv6 are via support ticket only (not provided during setup), and are only handed out one at a time (as /128). Reverse DNS is also only handled through support tickets, no CP is provided.

    bought a vps from them, had it for years. it ran fine without a hassle.

    then on july 27 2015 they did some “network maintenance” that brought my vps down. i was unable to log in via ssh, and rebooting the vps via the console didn’t help. using their console tool i logged in, and found that network connectivity was completely down — ping, nslookup, etc, all failed, and no nic showing via ifconfig.

    sent a ticket to support. their response? sorry, your kernel was too old, our maintenance killed it. you’ll have to DELETE AND RECREATE YOUR VPS! no other solution. sorry, too bad, so sad.

    so, their “network maintenance” caused four days of downtime AND irretrievable data loss.

    way to go!

    VPSCheap is not worth the money in my opinion. I got one of the cheap VPS to test a software I’m working on which is quite bandwidth intensive and was looking for unmetered VPS to run it on. After a few days of light/moderate use (average 1.5 MB/s), my process was shut down and I was told my application violated the terms of service and thus would not be reimbursed for the rest of the contract. So:

    1) Unmetered is not really unmetered. As soon as you use up too much bandwidth they will kill your processes without any notice and if you’re lucky they will suspend your VPS
    2) They dismiss customer’s claims very abruptly.
    3) The Terms of Service seem redacted by a retarded Nazi boot camp sergeant. The gist of it is: you pay us for the service but if you do something we don’t think we like, we shut you down without means of recourse.

    For the money spent, there are better options out there. After having to deal with them, I did some research and found small VPSs in Switzerland for about $2.5/month which is only negligibly more expensive than VPScheap.

    In other words, if you really plan to use the CPU/RAM and or bandwidth, this VPS provider is not for you. But if you just want to have some linux fun or maybe host a small personal web site, maybe you’re lucky and don’t show up on their usage radar.

  30. I hate to read misleading offers. It said 1gig unmetered ( I never thought I’d have the pipe solely for me) but having an established cap makes this offer fake.

    we can add some more points to data protection management as this one of the major concerns for lot of companies. I found something really useful in FDC severs blog http://blog.fdcservers.net/data-protection-management-in-data-centers/

    Please avoid, they make up some excuse to shut down your server, they won’t refund, basically you throw your money away. They attract customers owing to their cheap price, then take your server away due to some imaginary violation.
