LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

WhyNotAVPS – $6.90 768MB OpenVZ in Germany

Tags: , , Date/Time: August 16, 2010 @ 9:10 am, by LowEndAdmin

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.

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.

  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.)

    @Roel: do you offer ipv6 addresses in NY?

  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 :)

  18. @Roel +1 for XEN. Is this in the pipeline?

  19. @Evo Can you open a new Support ticket on what you are needing Evo? And thanks for the positive feedback ;D

    @Asim Zeeshan It is actually, most likely next month. Register at our website http://order.whynotavps.com/register.php and you might hear it in our newsletter.

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

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

    Please, can you explain the difference for me.

    Thank you

    Regards, Gunnar S
