    If all the kids could stop running benchmark scripts and just share them, that’d be cool versus taking week dump on the server for biggest number seeking purposes.

    Thanks!

    Love,

    I ordered one of these to try as a proxy for Hulu. The box seemed fine, but the IP was blocked (normal for datacentres now). Refunded in full under money back guarantee, fast ticket response. Calum seems a genuine guy.

        • Hi,

          You will need to contact us to have rDNS set.

  13. Birdough:

    Does this plan allow for reverse DNS for people who want to run services like email?

    Some other low end hosts don’t even listen to tickets for setting up PTR records or have the authoritative DNS server resting somewhere upstream that they can’t effectively manage.

    I’ve only used the boxes for a few hours, but they seem great little KVM machines. Decent latency to Europe for it’s location and DDoS Protection is a nice touch too. Never let down by WebSound and it seems to be the same now!

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.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
