Updated Dec 2010: Their IP changed on 29 November 2010 and is now showing forbidden. As their NS is now hosted by AfterNIC I presume they are not coming back.

WebSpaceDepot.com WebSpaceDepot has released new Xen VPS plans that are as cheap as $6.93/month. For their “Mini-Starter” plan, you get

  • 128MB memory
  • 15GB storage
  • 175GB/month data transfer
  • HyperVM
  • CentOS / Fedora/ Debian / Gentoo

WebSpaceDepot looks like a reputable company — been in business since 1997. Their data center is located in Palm Beach, FL. You also get some discount if you prepay for 12 months. Looks like a rather solid choice when you compare it with many failed VPS companies that I’ve reported before.

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.

    Hey, don’t even try to use this hosting provider. You’ll be screwed I tell ya! If your comfortable with BAD service and cheap pricing then this site is for you. The worst hosting service provider on planet earth. Don’t believe me, Ok! Try it and see if you can’t remember my words! My advice… “STAY AWAY”

    Mother, can you elaborate? Before I found FsckVPS (www.fsckvps.com) – which is just barely outside the price range to be featured on lowendbox.com – I was considering WebSpaceDepot for a Southeastern US location. Please go into more detail about your experiences with them. Shouting, “You Suck!”, while self-fullfilling, doesn’t really help the rest of us make an informed decision. :-)

    Ken, Well in detail. Their support service really sucks! I requested a rdns two weeks ago and when I did a follow up to inquire why nothing was done!
    They told me they had internal company issues.
    Other requests, were also placed on HOLD!

    Shockingly, my server was terminated after 2 two weeks of being setup. For what reason, I don’t know? Now, they got away with my balance for the server which I paid for in advance.

    Basically, they’re good for nothing. Their support response Time, is totally BAD! Their website keeps on going on/OFF.

    I’m tired of their Lies! They can’t give a good service, it’s like you have to beg for your money. Talk about money, some clients were not refunded for their orders which did not go through due to large numbers of orders. Talk about stability!

    So, People Beware!

  4. I’ve been with them since January, and since then they havent setup my reverse DNS, and my server has been down since early march, along with their control panel. I requested that my account be cancelled to their gmail account, and received no reply. Now, on the morning of the 3rd of April, I have already been charged twice, on the evening of the first and second of April. Luckily, I have now canceled my Paypal subscription, and switched to FsckVps, which offers an excellent service. It may be outside some peoples price range, but for $9.99 a month, you get between 512mb and 1g RAM,, and a 15% discount if you’re an open source developer.
