Joe from FST Servers left a comment on one of my previous reviews stating that they would like me to write a review about them. I have never heard about this company before – no reviews, no history, but the fact that they are using Citrix XenServer is something that makes them a really worthy one to be reviewed for. General Information and Prices There is really limited information I can find about FST Servers, through the domain checks, their domain is registered to Brendan Fusco in Chicago Illinois and it seems to be where their servers are based as well according to this post on LowEndBox.com.

Guaranteed RAM: 128MB Burstable RAM: 128MB Disk Space: 5GB Bandwidth: 250GB/Month 1vCPU 1 IP Address SolusVM Control Panel And I think the other nice feature about them is that they offer add-ons that you only need to pay one time: 1024MB Dedicated RAM – ($65.00 USD One Time) 20 GB Disk Space – ($15.00 USD One Time) 128MB Dedicated RAM – ($5.95 USD One Time) 256MB Dedicated RAM – ($12.95 USD One Time) 512MB Dedicated RAM – ($27.95 USD One Time) I have not tried them yet and the reviews on WHT and LEB Read More

Let me begin by saying this: the most important part of finding the “right” or the “best” low-end VPS for you, actually start from nowhere else but YOU! What? Me? Why me? Two reasons: 1. The reason why you are buying a low-end VPS is because you do not want to pay, for whatever reason, 100 dollars a month to set up your website, and 2. What you pay is going to be a very strong clue of what you will be getting. I used to dream of having a super-powerful server sitting somewhere that I can do some real rocket-science type of computing with it. Unfortunately, the reality is, as a decent working person with no wealthy family background and no oil reserve in my backyard, what is left in my pocket after paying all the necessities every month, is minimal. And that is why, most of you, are Read More
