vpsMachine Mat from vpsMachine emailed me their WHT offer the other day. They are currently running a special promotion until the end of October. Use promocode WHT0810 to get 30% off recurring discount. Their cheapest plan is now £3.49/month (order link), and here’s the spec:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 100GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers in UK I believe. According to the about us page, they are part of “A&M Web Ltd”, a private company in UK (Registration number: 6766231), that has been incorporated for a bit less than 2 years, who is also the registrar of their domain. Interestingly the website is hosted on Line3 Internet (non-redundant DNS fail), that also has A&M Web as registrar but the domain was registered back in 2005 (to registrant ITS-Linux Ltd that was registered back in 2000).

Looks like an actual company. Pricing might not be fantastic though, consider all the recent UK offers.

  2. Alright. Looks like some government website does not understand the concept or “permalink” (or don’t want people to abuse it :)

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 URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
