Budget-VPS-Hosting.comWeb Wide Hosting in New Zealand has overtaken ServerWays, and is now offering exactly the same VPS packages from $4.90 per month. Order them here as I can’t seem to find them on their home page. There are actually two plans that fit into my criteria (maximum $7/month):

  • VPS 111 — $4.90/month
    • 100MB memory (guaranteed/burstable)
    • 100Mhz limit on CPU
    • 10GB storage
    • 100GB transfer per month
  • VPS 222 — $6.90/month
    • 200MB memory (guaranteed/burstable)
    • 200Mhz limit on CPU
    • 20GB storage
    • 200GB transfer per month

Portland DC. OpenVZ.

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.


  1. kremlin:

    I nabbed myself the $4.90 plan last night, and it’s quite an interesting little VPS.

    By ‘100MHz’ they seem to mean ‘Dual Core 58MHz’, might want to watch out for that.

    Definitely not a bad little server, in my opinion

    I’d heavily recommend against CentOS on this one, the system image is huge and it’s probably the most memory hungry. I use debian myself.

    With Debian, the memory is a little tight for using dselect, I had OOM with it during the install phase. You can find all the package names and such on the packages section of the debian website and use apt-get to install them. Ran some small Python scripts, wasn’t too shabby. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap/tiny VPS.

  2. @kremlin — CPU limit is something I’ll be hesitated to sign up with them. It is not a minimum guarantee but rather a hard ceiling that you will never be able to get more than 100Mhz of CPU time.

    I guess if burstable CPU time is not required then this host provides great value for your money.
