Hosting Websites on Bare Minimum VPS/Dedicated Servers

VPSDeploy – $11.98/3 Month 384MB OpenVZ VPS in France

Tags: , , Date/Time: September 29, 2011 @ 8:11 am, by LowEndAdmin

VPS Deploy VPSDeploy has recently updated their website (see their previous offer for a small screenshot of their previous design), and are doing a 20% off recurring discount on their SSD based OpenVZ VPS. Use promo code NewSite when you order, and “Level 0” is $11.98/3 month after the discount.

  • 384MB memory/128MB vswap
  • 5GB storage in SSD
  • 250GB/month data transfer in 10Mbps
  • 1x vCPU core at 667MHz
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

They are taking either PayPal or AlertPay. Servers in France with OVH (test IP: 46.105.118.55). They are now doing straight LVM on SSD drives, i.e. no RAID. Impressive disk performance on some write test in the previous post, which was around 2 months ago. I wonder how those SSD perform these days. Spanish company with domain registered in March 2010.

    No so good now.
    Lots of people abuse the resources.

  3. I would think Xen would be a cleaner platform to offer SSD-Specific VPS packages to people. Of course they are overselling space (hence the OpenVZ) but that will also effect the read/write and I/O people are getting, which then slowly defeats the point of having SSD’s in the first place.

    • is not possible for a single VPS consumes all IOP’s available, I assure you…
      Speaking without testing, it’s like to be Merlin the enchanter…

        In OpenVZ? Seriously….

        While that ‘may’ be true… you can definitely have a SINGLE customer that will affect everyone elses performance on that node.

      The point of having SSD is defeated even long before that, by the capped CPU and network port.

      • Hi, thanks for your advice.
        We have corrected.
        I hope that now is more attracted

  4. Does anybody know what SSDs they are using? We tested some recently and only really saw an improvement in read speads, not write speeds (Compared to standard SATA2)

    We are now testing out 15K SAS RAID configs and the write speeds are unreal.

  5. The OVH network is amazing! Very, very, very fast speeds to Europe! :)

    Mixed reviews at this point. Signed up earlier today and had to contact support for a few issues. Right now, I have been assigned an IP ending in .255 (which we all know don’t work well in the hosting world) and of course it doesn’t allow me to reach my server. They think because it is pingable, it is fine. I asked them to please just change my IP and was told “We will check, I inform you in next 24h.”. I hope this was a communication gap and they are not serious. I will post an update later but right now I’m worried. If my IP is not changed in the next few hours, I am gone. I’ll be out the money I’m sure but this is not worth it if they won’t change something as simple as an IP.

    Well, when they said 24hr’s to ‘check why their XX.XX.XXX.255 IP they assigned me is not working (go figure)) I guess they really meant it. Appears “Tech support” has gone nightly-night and I maybe I’ll hear something tomorrow after they wake up, eat breakfast, and take care of the three S’s. At least I only went with the LEVEL 2 plan and will only be out a little less than $15.00 for the VPS when I walk away. Sad, was hoping it would work out with multiple vps’s. Some of these simple problems could be so easily fixed and web hosting companies need to remember negative talk really impacts business.

    Looks like they came through and got the IP changed… Thumbs up for getting it done.

    I don’t get it, is it giving up 20% price off with the expense of less port and CPU speed? What’s the benefit then?

    Contrary to what you said, there is no AlertPay payment method on this website.

    I purchased their level 2 plan a few days ago. Had a few issues (some where mine, others were theirs). Had a service outage due to I believe routing issues Yesterday… Their servers were fast, network was good considering the servers were located so far away. Cancelled services today because I realized I wanted to try XEN. They refunded me without even having to ask. All-in-All, they deserve a chance. Think most people will be happy with them — I just had some special needs… Many of which will require me to get my own dedi.

  13. Recommend this VPS, especially with SSD, but be awary the IP/Datacenter is in Spain not france, confirmed via email from vendor, and IP lookup

  14. My review about them, I would say the VPS is pretty good and disk I/O is what I expect SSD VPS to be, CPU is throttled which may be a little issue:

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
