I found a VPS in Houston for $5

Few providers offer VPS in Houston. I thought LET might be interested.

https://www.oplink.net/vps.html use KVM50 to get 50% off recurring.

Comments

  • Tempting offer

    How to clean up a questionable reputation: throw the kids some BF/CM offers.

  • I've got a dedicated and a vps there. Good stable network.

    Nice to see good deals in Houston, but isn't everything pretty much backhauled to Dallas?

    Thanked by 1Houston_Datum
  • Anyone have a colo there? Do they charge "property tax" on the colo??
    (I remember reading a thread on LET quite some time ago about Texas charging this on colo)

    Who paid you $5 to find a VPS in Houston?

    If someone offers to pay you $5 to find a VPS in Buffalo, do it - easy money.

    What about a VPS in Buffalo with ipv6 support?

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

  • @teamacc

    Even easier :P

    (you never said native connectivity, so tunnelbroker it is :D)

    wget https://s.flamz.pw/dl/bench.sh && bash bench.sh

    I can find VPS with /8 subnet which is very cheap. Only $1/mo.

    Finding price: 550$.

    4 GB RAM/90 GB SSD/4 TB Traffic/KVM/1 IPv4 for $7/mo only here with coupon code "LET-It-GO".

    IP range claimed, my vm setup already uses 10.0.3.0/24. That breaks your /8.

    I don't think so. Mine traceroutes from Houston through Atlanta when going to NY. No Dallas hops.

  • @raindog308 Nobody paid me. I just wanted to share a good offer. The same thing I did with enahost with VPS in Greece. I search for rare locations as part of https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/102717/what-locations-am-i-missing-189-servers-so-far-with-map-and-provider-names/p1

    Here are my results from Oplink.net:

    https://hastebin.com/ugesabiwom.swift

    This VPS is, to say the least, very good. It's peered with Cogent and Level3, and my ping from north Dallas is < 7ms (less than CC and LSN in downtown Dallas which hover around 7.5 ms). Disk I/O is around 1.5GB/s, again, top tier. The CPU is an Intel Xeon E3 1270v5 (released Q4 15). Speedtest is also attached:

    I've got a colo box in Houston (job perks :P), Houston apparently has a direct line to 56 Marietta via Cockmast.

    Their price range (w/ off) is quite affordable considering dedicated resources, daily backups and quite a rare location.

    This is probably something with the script, if I had to guess.

    This is a known issue with the script. The average calculation cannot differentiate between MBs and GBs.

    May I know which particular script are we talking about ?

    Yes, I was talking about the good old bench.sh

  • More news: upon opening a ticket today to ask a question about bandwidth overages, they told me they had a double bandwidth promotion currently, and upgraded me to 2TB (on the 1GB plan).

    thanked by nekki sister !

  • I've run that script so many times... probably never had a VPS with I/O crossing 1GB/s :lol:
