LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Yisp.com – $7 256MB Xen VPS in Miami

Tags: , , Date/Time: November 16, 2011 @ 1:17 pm, by LowEndAdmin

YISP Exclusive offer from Yisp.com, the Netherlands based VPS hosting company, came to existence in January 2006 and was last featured on this blog almost 2 years ago. They launched this current VPS “cloud” platform (i.e. Xen with SAN backed storage) at the end of 2010, and now the cheapest Linux Cloud VPS costs $14/month. However with coupon code lowendbox you get 50% off recurring discount. For $7/month (+ VAT for those in UK/EU), you get

  • 256MB memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • 1x vCPU core
  • Xen/OnApp

Payment in PayPal, iDEAL, Moneybookers, credit card or bank transfer. Servers with ColoHouse in Miami FL (test IP: 46.182.109.9). Some good reviews from 2 years ago, and since they are still in business, I assume that they have done something right.

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.

    Had a good experience with them before they started their cloud platform, it was a Xen VPS. Nice support, Rens did never seem annoyed by my messages.

    Stable node, he knows what he is doing.

    never tryied the cloud plaftorm tough, too expensive for me – and have no ideal about their platform in the US.

    Is it all colocated hardware Rens?

  2. Hello Bob,

    Thanks for the positive feedback. We own all our equipment, including everything in Miami!

    Our cloud offers actually do not cost more than our old VPS offers. Only difference is that we do not offer 128MB packages anymore.

    I also never tryed yisp.nl cloud platform however I love their old stable .nl Xen VPSs. After my 128MB yisp.nl experience I ordered something bigger there and two years later I can say only: rare LEB featured vps host which I trust with my “more serious” projects.

  6. In fact, I have more interest on the so-called Cloud platform? Forgive me that I have no idea about technology.

  7. VMVPS,

    We are using Xen with central (SAN) storage, as described by LEB. We are using Onapp as our management system (onapp.com). All hardware is redundant and if a hypervisor fails, the VMs from this machine will boot on one of the other hypervisors. This way a high uptime can be guaranteed.

    If you have any specific questions, please contact us at info@.

      SAN also failover safe?

      What happens if SAN breaks down?

      • Rens:

        SANs are also redundant (2 SANs)! Your VM will stay online in such case.

        • Bob:

          At least you know what you pay for & don’t really need a second LEB in case the first VPS fails (or it has to be network issue)

  8. @LEA, the previous offer uses a different tag:

    I know how you like to keep these neat. :)

    • Yeah I know. I use different tags for providers who have rebranded or have multiple outlets, if they choose to sell one of them later. Just for consistency here, but you can do search on ‘Yisp’ to get their posts.

    One way I think of “cloud” as differing from LEB is that LEB customers are expected to treat the server as a shared resource (lots of client per box, sustained high cpu can get you banned), while cloud servers are intended (and the hw configured) to handle sustained high cpu load from customers. Can you tell me Yisp’s setup and policy about this? How much cpu could I expect from this $7 plan? I have some compute intensive jobs that I’m looking for ways to run. Not too much disk or network traffic, but CPU fully loaded 24/7 if that’s ok with you. (It’s a search indexing task, not bitcoin or anything like that).

    • Paul,

      CPU isn’t much of a problem, we are using dual six-core nodes. The 256MB packages have 1 core which has 50% cpu priority. It is no problem to use this 100%, the CPU’s are underused on every node.
