ZappieHost was established in early 2015 and is a registered company in the UK. Their WHOIS information is public as well. Their motto is ‘taking hosting seriously’ and they aim to grow with their clients as they come. IPv6 is currently unavailable but will come in the future to both old and new clients. Their control panel is integrated into WHMCS meaning you have one place to manage your server and your billing. Space for up to three snapshots is included with these machines, allowing you to restore your VPS to a former state in case you mess something up. On top of that, these offers enjoy OVH’s DDoS protection. European locations are coming in the future. If you give these guys a shot, please share your experiences with us in the comments!

ZappieHost does have their own IP space but are only using that for non-LEB solutions. In the future they aim to use that for LEB solutions as well, which would require an IP change. Hardware nodes have either RAID1 or RAID10, with new nodes getting RAID10 by default. All nodes have Intel Xeon E5-1620v2 CPUs and SATA3 hard drives.

Payment methods accepted are PayPal and Bitcoin. A full refund is available before the 5th business day of you having your server. For all the details on that and more, please read their Terms of Service!

    For the Package 1, is 1GB shared? I once ordered a vps from another UK company but got suspended because bandwidth usage was high (about 50MB/s), and maybe out of their scope.

      I mean 1Gbps uplink, sorry.

    • Hi Doko,

      All the VPS machines have 1Gbps/s up-link and are fully able to burst to these speeds. Since each plan has a traffic limit (we dont offer unmetered servers) we dont mind if you decide to have your server burst in bandwidth.

      Cheers,
      Adam

    do you allow torrent like pirated movies ?

    • If there are any abuse issues that arise, like, legitimate DMCA or abuse requests, we forward them to the end client to deal with in a timely manner.

      In regards to running a torrent client (or any other software), assuming it does not abuse the disk IO and affect other clients (resource abuse) there shouldn’t be an issue running said software on your VPS

      Hope this helps

    Is there some sort of free trial I can use for a day or two so I can make sure my app works right.

    • Hi John

      Sadly we do not offer a free trial. We can assure you however that our OpenVZ templates are just like any other provider giving you the freedom to install what ever software you might need

    Okay, so i’m going to buy the Canada 4GB VPS which is normally $19.00, but now it’s $9.50 with the coupon.

    Question: Does this discount stay permanently? For example is it only $9.50 for the FIRST month, then I pay $19.00 a month, or is it $9.50 a month forever?

    • Hi John

      The discount is recurring, means it stays forever. We are doing this promo in order to get our name out there and to show people, even though we are new, we are here to stay :)

      Adam

  13. TODO:

    Can I buy the VPS Package 1 for now and upgrade later on when I need and still have the discount code forever ? Will I be able to upgrade and downgrade freely while maintaining the discount code ? Any estimates on when package 1 and 2 will be available ?

    • TODO:

      Can I use windows 7 ? I’ll provide my own key for that matter.

    • We will be happy to upgrade/downgrade the package and maintain the 50% recurring discount so long as the promotion is still running. (till the end of April) After April any change of plans will sadly loose you the promotion deal.

      The 2 smaller packages will be restocked Monday next week.

      Cheers,
      Adam

    I tested Zappie, did a complex setup for a website and when I came two days later it was back to the default Apache screen. I would not recommend them. Very nice pricing but I didn’t like the service.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
