Update March 2010: Wired9.com has not been resolving for a few weeks. Declared DEAD.

Wired9 Via this WHT offer. Wired9 is a very new hosting business based in UK. Its domain has just been registered since early this month, and it has already had a nice website selling cheap virtual servers! For $5.85/month you get:

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 30GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers are in Tampa FL with Hivelocity. Their website appears to be hosted on a cPanel server with both ns1.wired9.com and ns2.wired9.com on the same IP! At this point I did not bother to do any more research but you can get names on WHOIS info as well as instant-upload.com that is hosted on the same IP.

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.

  4. Wired9.com has not been resolving for over a week. Both NS are not contactable. I know that they have been rebranded as speedinet which is still working, but killing the old site completely is a bit weird.
