Update Jan 2010: IP address of W4networks.com has not been resolving for the whole week. The WHOIS has also been changed to someone else than the original provider. Sayonara!

W4 Networks Via this WHT offer. W4 Networks is a new’ish web hosting company based in Queensland, Australia, with domain registered back in February this year. They have some new OpenVZ VPS offers that are managed with SolusVM. For $5.95/month, you get:

  • 512MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 400GB/month data transfer
  • 2 IP addresses

Servers are in either Kansas City with WholeSaleInternet, or Scranton PA with (my guess) BurstNET. It’s nice that with multiple VM management panels coming out to compete with open sourced HyperVM, it is driving down the per-server license cost. SolusVM at $10/node and VePortal at $7.50/node, and with a 16GB node it is not hard running 30-40 VMs inside. Good to see that providers acknowledging there still exists a market for budget low end virtual servers — as long as the customers know what they are getting.

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.
