    Tiny vps wtb

    After my bitter and nasty taste with vaserve, I am looking for a VPS, with:

    -OS: Centos

    -Memory:

    -BW : 50 Gb of should cut it.

    -Location? any ( if possible far away from NYC as Ive already use one from there which are very nice so far but would avoid any type of downtime due to any type of local problems)

    -Virtualization: Openvz

    -Price: 3 bucks (paying a whole year upfront).

    The one I currently have, has more than the described above ( at an under 3 bucks price, so I am not being demanding):

    5GB Space 256MB RAM 500GB Transfer 1 IP Addresses for under 3 bucks
    Take into account that I never promoted any company. Ive been dragging the offer section and I cant see other than my current provider that seems to cut it with my requirements.

    Brand new companies wont be considered. I am not looking for the super traditional we all know but not the newbies either.


    Thanks in advance

    i think that the reason no one can quote that is cause its a tad cheap for what you want, i dont see how any host will offer that as they simply wont make money, or even break even, you really need to up your budget.

    I would also be dubious of anyone offering a vps at that spec for that price as its bound to be oversold or just not reliable at all,

    I don't know anyone that gives you that much RAM for $3. The closest I found is Ramhost.us (which I currently use and have had a great experience so far).

    At $3/mo with 256MB RAM you would be looking at an oversold VPS.

    Not really o.O

    More like 50c - $1.

    Regarding the main post, you really need to up the budget as everyone else stated, that is far too low, especially for those specs :\

    I have to agree with the above. I'd strongly suggest going for paying a little bit more for what you're looking for. Unmanaged + 256RAM + 50G Space will probably run you $8-10 for a reputable host.

    Either increase your budget or lower your expectations. Somehow I don't see you doing either.

    VPSLink has an offer which is close to what you're looking for. However the coupon is not valid on 12 month payments.

    Disk space: 2.5 GB
    Bandwidth: 100 GB
    Dedicated RAM: 64 MB
    Dedicated IP's: 1
    Monthly: $5.25 - 33% off coupon
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?

    Check through the VPS Offers Forum, you can probably find something with your requirements, but it's still a bit low. You may want to try contacting a few providers and see if they can offer you that

    Yes, it can be cheap. About $50/GB for a decent ECC RAM. However, you missed out other overhead costs that can incur the higher price. You may be able to get 512MB RAM for $10, as the overhead cost is still the same compared to 128MB RAM.

    1) ECC $50/GB? http://cgi.ebay.com/2x-1GB-Samsung-E...item439ab54f11

    Need more?

    2) why use ECC? you can use an X58mobo with a single 3520 (250 bucks aprox) and have a very nice server with 8 threads for pennies and be able to upgrade as soon as dual socket mobos go down..ECC is the secure way, right? for which type of customer?? I just want cheap sh.. if memory blows out and needs to be replaced I dont mind as I am getting my data mirrored and backuped up many many times

    Please dont repeat always the same tape as you must adapt to customer needs. Have a nice day

    Do you like having downtime cause of hardware replacement every now and then? Or do you think the host enjoy seeing downtime frequently? Your replies are merely reflecting your own selfishness.

    Not every customer wants everything for nothing.

    5.00/annually for 256 MB and such low bandwidth should be realistic for a lot providers, I would expect.
