LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

WhiteLabelHosting – $20/Year 256MB OpenVZ VPS in Seattle

Tags: , , Date/Time: November 11, 2011 @ 12:47 pm, by LowEndAdmin

WhiteLabelHosting Gregg from WhiteLabelHosting emailed me some of their new yearly plans. Pretty attractive pricing on pretty attractive plans — however these are only available in yearly payment so it would be a little bit of gamble whether the company will still be here this time next year. Their “.info” domain has technically turned one year old this week so hopefully they’ll stay until their 2yo birthday. The plans are:

I believe those are Xen servers sorry OpenVZ servers, as Gregg showed me that they are not overselling those on 24GB-48GB Xeon X5560 boxes (44 nodes each). Servers with Sentris so that’s downtown Seattle WA. I just went to Sentris.com and tried to configure a similar spec’ed dedicated server box, and those are not cheap. In fact, a E5530 box with 24GB RAM, 4x 1TB RAID10 and 8TB/month on 100Mbps would be $665/month — so I am not sure how Gregg is going to turn a profit on it.

But he could get a very special price from Sentris. I have no idea.

Currently they are operating on the .org site as that’s where the SSL certificate was issued to. For a period of time they were on .info domain, which is still better than their previous .co domain. Still, let’s hope they’ll stick around for a while.

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.

    This offer seems to coincide with Sentris posting some really good offers on WHT.

    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1092589 , so hopefully they have tapped
    into these offers, or even better offers, so that these plans can be sustainable ;0

      Yep, nice offers but each times 2xHDD – that would need no RAID 10.
      Or the offers are upgradable :)

    Is there confirmation that these are XEN?

    Paypal refused their website, that’s just a second ago I got after I filled a form to purchase.

  4. If they’re XEN they aren’t getting 44 to a box. You lose about 768M RAM per 8GB you allocate on XEN due to overhead. It isn’t ‘forced’, but you’ll end up crashing a lot if you don’t abide by it. The boxes come with a /27 to start and additional ip’s look to be priced at a dollar per usable. At enough to cover only a few months on the box i’d be pretty surprised if it is XEN :)

      Only with Xen PV, right?

  5. It seems LEA made a mistake, this is Xen. Sorry for all confusion.

    @Joe – This has nothing to do with their offer, we planned purchasing this node over 2 weeks ago & emailed LEB around 1 week ago.

  6. I will be monitoring this for the next few days so if anyone has any questions/concerns please do feel free to ask, opening a ticket would be preferred but I don’t mind answering questions via LEB. You can also contact me personally – business@whitelabelhosting.org

    Thanks!

  7. So, at the end is VZ? You are making this more confusing u_u

    November 11, 2011 @ 3:37 pm | Reply
    • Yes this is OpenVZ, my stating it was Xen was accidental. Although the email I sent to LEA must have confused him a little because I did mention the fact that we were not overselling statistically. He must have misunderstood.

      • I guess it would be a good idea to at least mention what kind of virtualization technology you use in your email. Your email in October also mentioned your Xen nodes in Phoenix thus I was assuming it’s Xen as well.

      • We aren’t hosting our own mail server, and redundant DNS is something on my list of to-do. We send out mail with SendGrid & receive it with OXC from NameCheap.

      Could you offer disk upgrades? Say 512mb ram and 150gb disk? How is your cpu load and what is your policy about long running cpu-intensive tasks? Thanks.

    These yearly offers are always risky, although you can save a lot in the long run. The question is how long of a run will you have with them?

    • I agree. I’m very open and my wish is to run WhiteLabelHosting for the foreseeable future, that to me is the next 5 years at least. A lot can happen in that time though and so I can never be sure, but I’m pretty confident that I will be around to view this post in another 365 days :)

        • Alright. If you have nothing to add to the thread or no questions, I would appreciate it if you didn’t post..posting for the sake of posting is wasteful. Try and save LEB’s bandwidth ^_^.

      • @Gregg getting offended buddy? Next time i would also appreciate if you do not post silly comments when you didnt even use the service. That WILL DEFINITELY SAVE LEB alot more bandwidth. Oh the review and comment i am referring to is at http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/cripperz-prodigy-10year-1-setup-64mb-openvz-vps-in-kansas-city/

        I find it really offensive and unethical for one provider to troll onto another’s provider thread / review. Yes every provider thinks that they are better and great than another one but hey save us all the agony. I hate flaming others to begin with but yes, i am beginning to hate trolls around as well. Lets stick to some good professionalism and move on aite. cheers

        • There was no trolling involved. I don’t think I am better at all although I would hope so, I know nothing about you, I was simply peering in on some of the comments of your customers. I did actually post something on topic but it seems it didn’t go through, the same happened with a few posts on this thread yesterday, seems the database was acting up a little. Sorry that you took offence.

    I can vouch for the quality of WLH,

    My node happens to be on one of the hosts which seems to be having hardware problems (probably not applicable on this new offer), but Gregg always gets back on support tickets really quick.

    • Thank you, not sure who you are but it is always nice to have recognition.

      As for your issue, the server hosted in the BurstNET DC is currently having issues, we’re debating whether to move customers to another node or upgrade the hardware.. we should have it solved soon, though.

      We’re still plentiful on stock for this offer, and orders seem to be coming in slow and steady.. if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.

    • Gregg, I just bought a VPS from you with the above plans, but I’d be interested in upgrading to one of the advertised plans here, assuming I can pay the difference and have my plan upgraded? If this is possible please let me know.

        • We did put more servers on the node than originally planned because after running some tests we realized that there was definitely room left. The node is performing well though and I am happy with it, as are the clients. We are yet to receive a complaint, though I welcome any clients who wish to comment on performance. We do out best to optimize the servers.

    RAID10 would make I/O around 250 MB/sec.

    80 MB/sec i get off my VPS which the provider say they use RAID1.

      Yes but it depends how many users use the node, you can have a RAID 10 if 50 people are writting at the same time it will be slow…
