For the past 10 years, we have provided VoIP PBX platforms for our users at no cost. We need low-cost cloud platforms with low latency for our users. Maximum annual cost must be under $25/year. Must support CentOS 6/7, Ubuntu 18.04, and Debian 8/9. If you have an offer and have been in business for over a year, please provide details here. Thanks.

    i have always wanted to install such a thing for my own private user. Can you please recommend some software/guids "links" to install on such vps specs.

    thank you in advance.

    I think the $25 budget for these specs could present a challenge if you need a reliable level of quality to support VOIP (especially variables such as network as you mention low latency, also would want low jitter)

    Sometimes you'll get promotional pricing closer to your budget from a few quality providers (might see a few sales for 4th of July) ... But more often at that deep discount price it's likely one will get offers for various degrees of over-sold and possibly inferior potassium. If you have the time and flexibility to sort all that out then you might possibly find something suitable but ... seems like long odds, really.

    For around $20-$25 yearly I'd expect to find decent KVM with something like 512 MB ram, 10 GB ssd pretty easily.

    For 1 GB ram and 20 GB ssd, I'm having a hard time thinking of anything reasonable quality even around $35 per year ... Always happy to be surprised by LET offers - just saying be careful with the super-low price range if you need much in the way of reliability.

    EDIT2:

    Just because I mentioned $35 per year - here is a good quality offer for $36 per year that meets your specs (except port speed is 500 mbits - though I suspect network is better than most advertised as 1 gbit anyway)

    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/157930/yearly-kvm-deals-starting-24-yr-high-i-o-zfs-ssd-ipv4-6-any-os-phl-east-coast-usa/p1

    others to check for good quality / low price offers might include providers such as AlphaVPS.bg, UltraVPS.eu, InceptionHosting, VirMach ... could easily list a dozen more possibilities but I don't think any of their normal pricing is going to meet your stated budget.

    EDIT3:

    nerdvittles. Wow. Welcome to LET.

    hopefully you'll get some better suggestions and good offers

    ok looks like you know the score. Always interesting to see how the cheap ones pan out.

    Anyway I'd guess at least a few providers here could be interested in hooking you up with something a cut above what you've been dealing with so far. (Given that you are the real deal, and are buying for the long term.)

    Also - I wonder ... @MasonR maybe something for freemach ?

    With a yearly payment I could knock the price of our Egg plan down to $30/yr (about a 50% drop from our list price) which would meet most of your requirements. I can also grow the SSD from 15GB to 20GB to meet your specs.

    Locations: Ashburn, Fremont or Winnipeg. VPS plans here: https://freerangecloud.com/cart.php?gid=1

    Edit: Shoot me a DM if you'd like to order one as I'll need to generate a custom order link for the discount.

    So @NerdUno if you can use OVZ (we use OVZ7) I can do this for exactly $12/yr with the exact specs mentioned (1GB+ RAM, 20GB+ SSD, 1TB+ BW)

    KVM however you'd need to double your budget sadly to $50/yr. We offer OVZ in Miami (new nodes arriving today), Seattle (coming up today) and Vegas (coming next week). KVM is offered in Miami or Vegas

    awesome response from some awesome providers stepping up to do the needful for nerdvittles

    I got so excited by what I saw in this thread I had to go take a nap

    now I am awake and scheming future purchases

    seems like Summer Black Friday could indeed be a thing (and just 161 days to go until the real deal!)

    @willie I've seen offer for 512 MB ram KVM in Fremont (and other locations) for $15 yearly from @freerangecloud - looks like a good opportunity to sample their wares and maybe take it from there.

  • NerdUnoNerdUno Member

    Awesome providers indeed. And thank you to everyone that has contributed thus far. We obviously cannot test all the submissions single-handedly. So I've reached out to some of our users and asked them to choose a KVM platform that meets their needs and give it a try. It would be enormously helpful if those who have not posted a signup link would do so at your convenience. This will make it easier to get folks signed up without a lot of back and forth on the details. Thanks again!

    Is it really needed to use iptables? And congrats on your website, many tutorials, up to date and also some lists of this extra cheap risky vps providers!

    Cant you just change the VOIP ports to something random, SSH also + fail2ban and host your VOIP things on OVZ?

    Its a lot cheaper still. Or can't you on most VOIP clients u can use a different port?

    Maybe the gods of lowend hear your demands and post some extracheap offers on LEB.
    Edit: On LEB "LQHosting" has 22$/yr KVM VPS 2GB with 20 GB SSD if u wanna risk it.

  • NerdUnoNerdUno Member

    @zero24x: Not really looking for providers that have been in business six months. We've got plenty of those, and three already have gone under this year. As for the KVM requirement, we support a number of VoIP platforms with a whitelist-based firewall and, on those, OVZ is fine. For our open Internet solutions, we need more than security through obscurity so ipset/KVM is a requirement.

  • zero24xzero24x Member
    edited June 22

    @NerdUno

    Ok, maybe theres an Fail2Ban for VOIP also, e.g. there is one for apache and ssh, so after few failed login attempts it will ban people.

    So no need to block special IPs/ranges.

    Or maybe in your situation get a 20$/mo dedi with 8gb or so I think nocix, wholesaleinternet had some, put many VOIP clients there by running VMs or container like docker.

    Instead of messing around and setting up so many instances which at your budget u probably get overselled or unsustainable anyways.

    @zero24x: We don't want to get in the hosting business. We provide free PBX software and a tech blog with solutions. These signups would be coming from our customers except for our limited testing of platforms for purposes of identifying great providers.

    As for Fail2Ban, we obviously use it but it's next to worthless in preventing attacks from high performance servers such as Amazon EC2 because Fail2Ban needs resources to read logs and ban attackers. When a PBX is bombarded by 10,000+ SIP requests per second, there is virtually no horsepower left to scan logs. Hence the reason for ipset and the VoIP Blacklist.

    Ok thats understable if you don't want to provide hosting. OK, so fail2ban is not an option also. W

    hat are the bad guys doing? Spam phone calls or tryin to breach in?

    The point I was trying to make:

    With VPS you can have so many issues, network latency, slow network, out of disk space, cpu overloaded, reboots sometimes, abusers knocking down the node etc. if they are oversold or handled by amateurs or abused.

    A dedicated server mostly runs fine since you dont share it with others.

    @zero24x: I appreciate your comments. We've been in the tech industry for over 30 years, and we've been developing VoIP platforms for more than a decade. So we've got an inkling of what we're up against. Our designs don't typically pass voice/video traffic through the server so most of the issues you've identified don't exist on our PBX and SIP platforms. It's endpoint to endpoint once there's a successful registration. And, yes, bad guys try to do any number of things to a PBX: denial of service, spam, expensive calls, root exploits, and on and on. Come join the VoIP party, and you'll see soon enough. :-)

    @HostDoc you are just in time for Summer Cyber Monday!

    Here's what's been going on:

    nerdvittles is a buzzing hive of VOIP enthusiasts in need of good cheap fast VPS capable of handling their PBX (and possibly other VOIP-related) needs.

    These are people who've been dodging bullets on that other site (cough LowEndBox) up until @NerdUno dipped their toe into the waters of LET, where the real deals for good cheap fast VPS are known to flow like milk and honey.

    These are likely to be long-term, no BS customers for hosts who can deliver superior potassium.

    Links to any offers to facilitate ordering would be appreciated.

    Or - as often happens with impromptu deals here - might arrange to open a sales ticket for discounted invoice or whatever other special percs a deal might entail.

    (we're having a party and you've been invited)

    ahhh yeah just tagging a few more hosts to see what shakes loose - and I'm sure I'm missing quite a few more - so anyone please feel free to suggest suitable suppliers of superior potassium who may be amenable to meeting OP's somewhat challenging request:

    Need KVM 1GB+ RAM, 20GB+ SSD, 1TB+ BW, Gbit Net for VoIP Platforms
    Must support CentOS 6/7, Ubuntu 18.04, and Debian 8/9. If you have an offer and have been in business for over a year, please provide details here. Thanks.

    OP is sending some indeterminate number of enthusiasts of the VOIPish persuasion to get a taste of the good stuff - seems that they're used to supercheap LowEndBox deals and somehow got the idea that $25 was a suitable annual budget for this (KVM with 1 GB ram, 20 GB ssd, 1 TB xfer, gbit port)

    I was skeptical but the spirit of @Nekki and Emma Watson prevailed upon us and lo we have several responsive responses addressing the specs and doing their best to keep cost close to the requested budget. Check for more details below, here's the tl;dr:

    I have services with many of these providers and am happy to say that they are all worthy of your consideration and appreciation for some great deals.

    @HostDoc: I appreciate the offer, but this isn't primarily for me. It's for our installed base of thousands of users and organizations worldwide. While we have some cloud-based servers, I'm more interested in long-term solutions for the folks that deploy our (free) VoIP servers including Incredible PBX, OpenSIPS, Wazo, VitalPBX, Issabel, Asterisk, and FreePBX. We're pushing to move as many of them as possible to cloud-based servers. I don't believe one-year offers would be of much interest either. Organizations typically deploy a PBX for a decade or more without changing horses. But thanks again for trying.

    Yes, that is indeed the Gold.
    Normal pricing for that particular plan is £4.89/m (Prescription Package) with a little less bandwidth.
    If the other interested party is yourself @uptime , I can let a second Summer Cyber Monday VPS go for the $25/y budget non recurring (£19.62) and that would be as far as my part in this crazy :scream: Summer Cyber Monday event goes.
