XVPS – $20.52/3 Month 256MB OpenVZ VPS

Tags: , , Date/Time: April 19, 2010 @ 3:54 am, by LowEndAdmin

XVPS Via this forum post. XVPS is offering some low end virtual servers, and you can get 10% off recurring discount using promo code LOWEND10. That drives down the cost of their VPS-1us to $20.52/Quarter when you prepay 3 months.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 300GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

On the company’s home page it does say the VPS starts at $6 but I could not figure out how to get to that price. Servers are with Sentris in Seattle WA. Domain was registered a month ago, and uses AFRAID.ORG for DNS.

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.

    Sentris is not a good network to run a business on. Its slow, unrealiable and unpredictable

    I had a dedicated server with them and there would be days of abysmal performance where their network would run at less than 8megs

    they have “uk servers”, though the speedtest link they gave for uk servers is located in Hetzner network, how uk’ish that is, huh.

    i am not sure about Sentris but I’ve had VPS from this company for almost two weeks now (USA server), not 1 second of downtime and they have SLA. their support is very fast and helpful.

  5. I’m not sure how the UK speedtest error happened. That is indeed a problem! (We host some EU solusvm/backup servers with Hetzner, so there must have been confusion. Pains of coordinating staff :[ )

    I’ll see to it that it’s fixed, thanks lowend users for pointing it out. :)

    P.S. In regard to Sentris, we’ve had servers with them for various projects for more than 6 months with no trouble. One of the better west coast DCs I’ve worked with!

  6. Quite a decent deal but I sometimes question the idea of such small containers <256mb. A $150 server would need at least 30 of these to be profitable. Wont be getting too great of disk I/O when this happens.

    Also, the code doesn't seem to work when I tried it with their UK packages.

    I am 99.99% sure this is run by the previous owners of delimiter… and if that is the case then you will want to avoid this host like the plague! Design is extremely similar from a development point of view, and the TOS is a direct rip of delimiter’s…

    Delimiter have been excellent since the takeover but before that were one of the worst VPS providers I ever dealt with – if this is the case then it will not be long until they have oversold the servers to the point the servers are falling over, then they will sell the business on.

  8. Mr. Harris,

    We employ the same Web designer/marketer as Delimiter.us since we like their design, but our staff is completely separate–I haven’t seen Delimiter’s ToS but we modeled ours on SliceHost’s …?

    @Matt – Our company does not oversell our servers. Most of the nodes have 16gb memory, several hard drives, and they all perform quite well–we have a method for balancing the clients on each server to maximize resource availability.

    great so far. Signed up for VPS-1 when they posted the forum ad, setup was very fast and support was able to hunt down/install some specific software for me.

    17:26:31 up 2 days, 14:29, 1 user, load average: 0.00 0.00 0.00 — 100% so far as advertised :)
