Tags: , , , Date/Time: March 13, 2008 @ 11:11 pm, by LowEndAdmin

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.

    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.
