Still alive - placed an order on the Chicago server at 11/26 1:45am EST. I've always used Xen for my VPS needs, so I'm hesitant to go with OpenVZ, but for $30, I'll take my chances. I just hope the servers are not ridiculously oversubscribed.

Yeah - I see guaranteed amounts of RAM, storage, etc, but notice they don't mention how much CPU you get. It's only $30, but to me, this is like buying a laptop without knowing which CPU it has.

Yes, I did see that, but it doesn't tell me very much. What share of the CPU do you get? It could be .1GHz or .33GHz. In fact, that isn't atypical (WireNine's cheapest VPS - $25/month - gives you .33GHz, for example).

Is there a way to get this without getting a host name? just accessing with a bare IP address?

The welcome email provides the IP address of your new VPS..


then you can do


ssh root@[new VPS ip from welcome email]


use the password set when configuring VPS


when configuring my vps I used the hostname and domain I will use when I finish building my server.

These guys recently got hacked and lost all their customers' data including mine. Luckily I had my own backup but I'd hate to have all any customers' personal data on there.
I was just about to say this was a good offer until I read this ... I guess you get what you pay for with $30 / year. There's more web hosting deals on Slickdeals just search Smilie

I mean when purchasing the vps, is it possible not to purchase/transfer a domain name?

Usually you can put any domain in the " Use my own", I think usually the domain(unless you purchase or transfer" is used as a identifier in billing.

Doesn't show the share though. So you could get awesome results now, but maybe only because no one else is using their share. What the other poster is trying to figure out is, how much cpu at once are you promised. If everyone is running a high cpu applications, who gets what? Say it's a 16GB server, at 2GB per user (assuming he/she doesn't oversell) you have 8 people sharing 16 cores. Now is it 4 cores dedicated to each user?, etc etc.

it is NOT dead... did you try the coupon?


I was able to apply the coupon to the LA location..
I've been trying to use it since yesterday (using Chrome). Keeps saying that nothing in the cart applies to the code.

EDIT: figured it out, you have to choose 12months of service (full year)

I will use my existing domain and update my nameservers

The links in the first post are incorrect because they will add a Xen virtual machine to your cart and those are not on the deal. It has to be OpenVZ. Instead go to the lowendbox link and use their links to for the deal. Note that OpenVZ VM's are less secure than Xen as far as VM separation on the host goes.

I got one to play with but honestly I'm not sure I would trust these guys. The default Debian install has all kinds of crazy stuff installed that you should never install by default because of security risks (samba, xinetd, bind, etc). I mean you can install that stuff yourself if you know what you are doing but it should never be in a default install.

OK, this one is just personal opinion but the default filesystem is farking reiserfs which is what unskilled admins that think they're some kind of awesome hacker use (versus XFS, ext, or some other stable and reliable fs).

Plus they got hacked. According to them it was a brute force. Whatever the reason they either had a security hole or weak primary admin password.

They seem to lack skill all the way around, hence my lack of trust. It's too bad because I get a really good ping to my core backend business systems from these guys but I just can't see trusting them with something like that. Probably a wasted $30.
