It is always interesting to see a company selling VPS services half-way across the globe, which is exactly what QualityServers did. Through their Eliminator plan, which was advertised on WHT, they have promised to have a “one-size fits all” plan. Is it really good as it has advertised? I decided to try it out myself just to see. Plans and Set Up As per their advertisement on WHT, here is the specification of the box: As per this post on LowEndBox.com, their US servers are based in Tempa, Florida with Hivelocity DC. UK is also available for the same price for those who prefer a European location. 6USD for a 600MB OpenVZ box is not exactly cheap for an unmanaged service, however for a “fully managed” service, it definitely sounds like a good deal, add 1 more pound per month and you get a Xen box, which definitely is a Read More

To everyone who is waiting to get a cheap but powerful BuyVM VPS, please get your calendar marked! According to this announcement, they will be adding stock again on Monday April 18th at 12:00pm GMT-7, if you have any trouble translating this to your local time, here is a website that may help. BuyVM is perhaps one of the most famous players in the low end VPS industry, and their 15 USD/year plan, which I have just finished an review on 96MB.com, is perhaps one of the most popular among the low-end VPS users. In fact, it is so popular that there is actually a website dedicated for their stock and last time they added stock, all 15USD/year plan are gone in 30 minutes! So donâ€™t wait, set up your alarm clock and grab one before it runs out!

So, here comes the first post that I have made on this blog, which is running on a Xen VPS with 96MB of RAM. The first question is why did I do it? Inspired by LowEndBox.com, put it simply. I have purchased no less than 5 VPSes from various promotions from this popular site before I noticed that it is literally a one-man blog running on 80MB of RAM! As per here, the website receives about 45k of pageviews daily. (Edit: LowEndAdmin has kindly pointed out to me that as per here, pageview for LEB is about 250K per month, less than 10k per day, thanks LEA!) Therefore, as curious man as I have always been, I decide to try it myself and when I saw this offer listed on the LEB website, I decide to give it a try. Quite frankly speaking, the process of running a web server Read More
