I saw an offer from BudgetVM on WHT, they offer $48/year for 1GB RAM + 1GB Swap, 4 core E5-2620, 80GB HDD, 3TB BW. Here is a quick test from freevps script:

CPU model :  Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2620 0 @ 2.00GHz
Number of cores : 4
CPU frequency :  2000.135 MHz
Total amount of ram : 1024 MB
Total amount of swap : 1024 MB
System uptime :   5 min,
Download speed from CacheFly: 24.6MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Atlanta GA: 5.25MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Dallas, TX: 14.8MB/s
Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 7.52MB/s
Download speed from Linode, London, UK: 7.68MB/s
Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 7.24MB/s
Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 3.56MB/s

The offer said port speed is 100Mpbs, but it seems it's 1Gbps :D It's really impressive :D

  • I'm doing serverbear benchmark right now. ;D

  • @giang You order vps from which location? :o

  • I saw that offer yesterday. It's OpenVZ right? Seems like LA is having better connection to Asia

  • Is this OpenVZ with VSwap or burst? They advertise burst, but the details above say swap.

    @ErawanArifNugroho Yes, nice ping here from Malaysia to their LA location.

    @concerto49 It's OpenVZ with VSwap.

  • Great stuff. Been looking for some lower end LEB with VSwap. Looking forward to the serverbears.

    @Jeffrey Price from 2 weeks ago: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=1180623

    I think the current promo is for limited time only.

  • I am sure this offer will becoming a shitty dirt. 'cause they have to oversell heavily for this price.

    Thanked by 1Jeffrey
  • I agree with @dearroy. To sustain a dedicated server from being oversold, you have to come up with sustainable prices. At this price point, especially coming from a big host, how many VPS's do you think they would have to load on the dedicated server to earn profit back? Quite a lot, actually. I am sorry, but this has been proven with both Chicagovps.net $7/Month 2GB Ram VPS's and VolumeDrive's $4.95/Month 2GB Ram VPS's.

    Yep just look at ChicagoVPS miragated those bargain takers to New York and VD's non-response support. I am sure BudgetVM will be the follower if they keep doing this.

  • @dearroy, I actually own 4 VPS's with VolumeDrive, I get a response to every Email I send out to them for support in less than an hour at most.

  • @Jeffrey said: I get a response to every Email I send out to them for support in less than an hour at most.

    You are trying to persuade me to buy a VD's VPS right? :P I usually spotted some post about their poor support in WHT but I myself never have never used thier VPS and Dedicated. Maybe i should modify my comment.

  • @dearroy said: I am sure this offer will becoming a shitty dirt. 'cause they have to oversell heavily for this price.

    Well, we will see in a month if they oversold or not :D

  • @giang said: Well, we will see in a month if they oversold or not :D

    Of course it will be oversold. Every provider oversells. The question should be formatted to "Will it be overloaded".

  • @giang said: we will see in a month if they oversold or not :D

    Told William to PM you how many containers they are hosted on that server.sir.:D

  • the new Xen packages seem great too.

    Bah, oversell, big deal. Get one of those 512gb ram and raid 10 16tb from @web_host.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

  • JarJar Member

    What makes this interesting is that this type of oversell isn't usually accompanied by such high I/O results, even early on. Usually they keep the investment low, and I can't think of a way to hit those numbers without at least pretending to care a little. They have my attention.

  • But it's hard to oversell Xen, unless the I/O or network slows to shit.

    I might try them out. Everything is cheap.

    And dedicated servers with unlimited IPs :D

    @jarland write cache ;) @mitgib can explain a helluva lot better than me though.

  • JarJar Member

    @Taz_NinjaHawk Yeah but I mean...that high? Still gotta be a nice controller right?

  • I shot them an email about their OVZs and got a very speedy response from Nick. He says these prices are subject to change later, but these are intended to be their new standard prices, and that if you sign up at these prices they won't change for you. I have my doubts about the level of service they'll be able to maintain, but the call of the LEB is strong. I'll probably end up trying one out for a month or two.

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    Unlimited IPS? could have a mix of blaclisted ones

  • @budingyun said: @giang Share with me too. :D

    I will share when I got it :D

  • @lele0108 said: And dedicated servers with unlimited IPs :D

    You wont get as many IPs as you expected. unless you get unbeatable reasons.

  • One of the best offers from a good provider in recent days. I don't have a budget/need to add new vps at these locations, so i am sadly letting this pass ;|

    Don't pay yearly to new/shady/suspicious companies. Don't pay yearly for offers that seem too good to be true. They also offer it at $4.99 per month, which looks more sane to try out... ...but the package also includes 3xIPv4, seriously? This can't posssibly work long-term, I'd say.

  • @rm_ said: ...but the package also includes 3xIPv4, seriously? This can't posssibly work long-term, I'd say.

    Considering that they are giving out unlimited IPs for dedicated servers, I'm guessing they are sitting on a large stock of un-used IPs.

    I dont really agree with you,i just think this is a certain promo method to attract potential buyers. If everyone can request UNLIMITED IPs from them,ARIN will cry because IPv4 is running out.:P

    so you mean maybe BudgetVM.com is new/shady/suspicious company?

    I donot think so ,BudgetVM.com Enzu Inc Created:2007-07-04

    Own all of their own hardware and software like 5 Owned License No Branding WHMCS

    same price with nodedeploy.com big deal @ http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/3935/phoenix-4.95-1024mb-ram-60gb-hd-1gbit-port

    but better reputation and big DISK\MEM\Swap\IPs

    so maybe I should cancel my nodedeploy vps and get one from BudgetVM
