LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

WhyNotAVPS - $6.90 768MB OpenVZ in Germany

WhyNOTaVPS Over the weekend I have received quite a few “LowEndBox exclusive” offers and I have to say all of them are very good — really makes me wonder why I am paying that much for a server in the past years. Roel from WhyNOTaVPS sent me an email + exclusive promo code on their VPS offer. Use lowendbox to get 56.75% recurring discount — yes it is a weird number but it was done this way to fit through our $7/month criteria. So for $6.90/month after the discount, you can get “VPS C” package…

  • 768MB guaranteed/1024MB burstable memory
  • 33GB storage
  • 333GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are in Frankfurt Germany. You can get more discount if you prepay for a year — $74.37 for “VPS C” for example, which equates to ~$6.20/month. WhyNOTaVPS is a Netherland-based business according to its WHOIS info. They have also changed to a new design since I last posted about them 3 months ago.

Update: Thanks to John for notifying me that this offer does not really apply to their New York VPS. Tags amended.

  2. Asim Zeeshan that would be a good one “33mbps” but that is not the case, all VPS we offer are connected to a 100mbps connection!

  9. @Asim Zeeshan: uhm, why a provider host their main site on shared hosting?

    August 16, 2010 @ 2:27 pm | Reply
  10. Yes, we have our main website hosted with a external company in a different network then our VPS nodes. Why? First of all we sell VPS as our core product not web-hosting, now we can put all our effort and time on the product that we do sell and that is keeping our Hardware Nodes on-line!
    Second our website does run in a different network then our Hardware Nodes are hosted, so that we can always be available for support issues.

    @Asim Zeeshan, we do not host our website on the servers from myh2oservers.com it is however located in there IP range.

    @Minh@Minh Meo’s Blog, we can be trusted, I would say try us out for a month!

  11. @Roel: please offer Xen vps like nordicvps.com and we will give a try :D

  12. I know a few company who host off their own network so if the server was ever to go down their support would still be available.

  13. Sorry for posting twice – Average speed of 6.75Mb/s from my VPS in Hetzner, DE.

    It’s actually quite sensible to have an off-network website, so I’d cut them some slack on that one. (Hey, it’s rare that a host featured here at least gives the illusion of having their act together.)

    Besides, at least they *have* a website, and not just a picture. (Cough, BlazeVPS, cough.)

  16. Dirk, our provider does not support it yet.

  17. I have a vps with WhyNotAVPS for almost 2 months – it’s very stable and fast (I am with 1280mb RAM plan). My only complain is that the bandwidth is a little bit expensive :)

    Thank you, I have already sign up, works well.
    But I don’t understand the difference between:

    BSA Special 01
    VPS D with the “lowendbox” promo.

    Please, can you explain the difference for me.

    Thank you

    Regards, Gunnar S

  30. @Gunnar, both different promotions BSA Special 01 doesn’t require a promotion code and cost more then VPS D with promotion code lowendbox.
