    Need a *very* cheap VPS

    Hi,
    I'd need a very cheap VPS, not more than $10/mo, better if less.
    I'd just need:
    128 Mb of RAM
    10 Gb of space
    >100 Gb/mo bandwidth
    Debian

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Luca

    I would recommend rapidvps.com. I have used them several times. Excellent control panel and instant reinstalls.

    I recommend Web Wide Hosting. I have yet to write a review, but I've had a great experience with their VBS packages. It's a regular OpenVZ VPS but with your CPU and RAM resources limited.

    I've been with them about a month, which is why I haven't written my review yet, but no unscheduled downtime (I measure every 5 minutes from an external box), quick replies to tickets, and better performance out of a 100Mhz/100MB VPS than I had expected.

    Don't expect to run some heavy Drupal, Mysql, or Wordpress sites, but for a low traffic dynamic site with lighttpd+php+webdav, it works great. I use it as an Rsync dump, webdav server, etc etc and I love it.

    I would recommend Virpus Networks. You get 10 GB space, 200 GB bandwidth, 128 MB Dedicated RAM, 512 MB Burstable RAM and DirectAdmin all for $10/month. I have had no problems since I have been with them.

    I don't see the $10 plan on Virpus Networks.

    But you can try these guys at internetvps.com for $9.99 - 128mb, 5gb, 100gb bw. Support is fast and servers are very reliable. You can have your own VPS control panel and a Free LxAdmin Web Hosting Control just like Cpanel. I am using their $4.99 plan for my DNS server and it works pretty good.

    The $10 plan is "hidden." You can't find it on the website, but it is available if you go to the order form.

    Thank you all for your replies!
    VPS111 ($4.90/mo) and VPS222 ($6.90/mo) from Web Wide Hosting look very interesting, especially thinking that Euro has a good changing rate (> $1.50).

    If you have any other ideas, please, tell me.


    Thank you again,
    Luca

    I've had a great experience so far with Web Wide Hosting.

    I like the concept of restricting CPU and RAM and discounting the price.

    My guess is the typical site, unless you've got some bloating script app or some hardcore dB web interface, doesn't need more 128/256MB ram and couple hundred Mhz of processing time.

    Typically you want high disk space / high BW.

    Could you reply with the url for this company please? I'm interested in looking at their plans but I'm not certain I'm finding the right company.

    Thanks,

    Web Wide Hosting just took over serverways.com. WWH's front page has not been updated yet to include serverways' programs. If I recall correctly, WWH will open a new website soon to support the serverways' packages.

    If you go to the link I provided, click "Order" and you'll see the packages.

    Superbytes is actually a pretty decent host, the only problem (which led to the downtime) was that they chose Vagu as their host.Everything is much better now that they moved to BURST.

    Just thought I'd let everyone know that (however they are now *really* cheap)

    Thank you for your kind words Travis. The $10/mo plan will soon be listed on our website. We were technically running testing with that offering to see how it would work for us. We will be standardizing HyperVM/OpenVZ in the coming weeks, though even now the plan is available as you stated.

    Just curious of that post, if they sold 8 VPS's which would max out the 4GB they say they have per node, they would only be bringing in ~80/month per node.

    Looks like some major overselling going on with that company.

    I'm confused here. How can you oversell a server if the VPS limit is restricted by physical memory?

    For instance, on a server with 4GB of RAM you could run eight individual VPSes with 512 MB each (lets pretend there’s no overhead with the host’s OS). So, how can you oversell this server? Obviously there would be no burstable RAM, so you could be a little misleading there but we all know burstable RAM is not a gurantee anyways.

    Can you oversell RAM? Is this possible? If so, does that mean that some clients end up with swap space for their RAM allocation?

    Regards,
    Matkin

    It is possible to over sell the server. With OpenVZ, each vps only takes as much resources as it needs. So say you have a plan for 256mb ram, but the VPS is only running Centos, which takes about 17mb ram, it will only use 17mb ram. This makes it so that you can oversell the server, but watch out, because when that VPS needs the memory that you promised them when they sign up, it could get ugly! It will start killing your processes making the VPS crash.

    Exactly as magnuson56 states it. I see customers regular use of ram very low, but all have 1-5 minute spikes at differing times of the day.

    If you have 8 VPS's on a 4GB node, you are not going to make any money, and that is not good for the host or the customer. While I agree overselling is very bad, it's what we agree is actually overselling.

    Does selling 4gb of guaranteed ram on a 2 gb OpenVZ machine when all the users on the machine never find themselves short on ram as needed qualify as overselling? This is the whole concept of VPS, at least the OpenVZ concept of VPS, everyone shares the resources as users will need those resources at different times.

    Thanks for the info guys; apparently I took the word "guaranteed" a little too literally.

    If you are offering burstable RAM packages, there really shouldn't be any overselling of the dedicated ram going on. Just because if 4 people burst to their max of 1GB (on a node of 4GB), then your server will start swapping which is incredibly slow compared to RAM and will decrease the performance of the server greatly.

    You can oversell fairly easily by swapping, but your server will drop big time in performance if it is relying on swap.

    Sorry for the confusion. We took over ServerWays business back in February.

    There were a number of things that needed to be done before we were happy with a public launch, so we have not made any real public notification up until now.

    We do now have a dedicated site up for the VPS services, this is under a new domain name, but remains part of the Web Wide Hosting Group.

    I'm not sure if it would be considered spamming to publish the URL here, so I'll just say check my profile for details .

    Best Regards,

    Jon
