LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

XPLHost – $6.36 OpenVZ VPS Spring Special

Update — it appears that XPLHost.com is now redirecting to a parking page. FAIL.

Thanks to abjr pointing out this XPLHost special where you can get a low end OpenVZ VPS for $6.36/month (after the 20% off discount). Here is the spec:

  • 96MB memory guaranteed
  • 7.5GB storage
  • 150GB data transfer
  • CentOS + HyperVM + LxAdmin

Servers seem to be with The Planet in Dallas. 150GB makes it a small file/media serving box on the cheap.

Update: It appears that the deal is no longer valid.

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. The new special is here:


    It’s a semi-managed VPS. So there is less freedom, but also less effort to setup up.

  3. Oh, sorry. Actually the lowest special plan is $7.61 per month now. 7.61 > 7, so maybe I shouldn’t have pasted the link here.

  4. @Ryan — thanks for sharing the 15% off discount although the plan would be outside the cut-off I am using for VPS here.

    Looks like the servers are managed although I think for those who are playing around low end Linux/*nix boxes, they’ll probably prefer to have their boxes unmanaged.
