What is a VDS? Why only $0.79/mth?!

I came upon this site https://hostvds.com/
$0.79/m for 1GB plan but not much reviews about them.

What is a VDS? I have a couple of OpenVZ and KVM. Is VDS any diff?
How can this provider do so cheap!

    when in doubt assume scam and look elsewhere.

  • I came across this site as well and was wondering the same thing. It requires you to make a deposit before you can even see any of the information. I was sketched out by the whole process so I ended up not paying, but would love to hear from someone that has used them before. I am especially interested if the $0.79 a month plan gives you the option to pick Dallas, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Bangalore, and Moscow.

    VDS is a Virtual Dedicated Server. Basically it’s a VPS with dedicated resources/no overselling.

    But I agree with @james50a if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

    Yeah, no TOS, no company about, and as @jamespeach mentioned, like it just wants your CC info to "activate" the account. Hetzner does something similar, but there isn't even any info on the company, so stay away.

    They do take PayPal as well, they seem to accept almost anything, and you can deposit any amount. I can't tell if its a scam, or just poorly designed and translated.

    I can't press that button within their CP, so it might just be a poorly designed site. Surprised they created a whole new one rather than using WHMCS/Blesta/Clientexec/Hostbill....

  • VDS is just marketing BS for hypervisor-based VPS.

  • Well, interesting. I actually topped up $1 and got a server. Delivery is instant, and the panel looks pretty decent. Only Russia location is available; other locations are greyed out. Billing can be hourly or monthly, and the price is indeed $0.79/month for 1 GB RAM and 10 GB storage.

    Same experience with @dedipromo, I topped up $2 (+0.3USD via stripe), the reason I'm signing up is to try Hong Kong as advertised, but turn out only Russia available. Crap.

    No ticket system available, you have to email them

    And this is yabs for 2GB instance:

    I was looking for a cheap development VPS yesterday and also stumbled upon hostvds.com site. However, I didn't even receive the registration confirmation email and considering all that other guys have mentioned above decided to pass.

    Instead, I went with AlexHost that offers KVM 1.5GB RAM, 10GB SSD for 1€/m with yearly payment and appears to be a registered company in Moldova. The server just got provisioned so I can post bench if anyone interested.

  • So just an aside, I bit the bullet since I was looking to move some stuff from Aruba. Cheap enough that I figure a few bucks if it turns out to be garbage isn't too bad. One thing is that they do seem to have a "security group features which is really helpful for me. The IP address returns back RU as intended but seems to be something with "CloudBackbone" which only seems to correlate to Huawei's network offering?

    p.s. my VPS with them has an uptime of 31 days. You can only deploy to their Russian location.

    I came upon this site https://hostvds.com/
    $0.79/m for 1GB plan but not much reviews about them.

    Yes, we are new, this is why not many reviews.

    What is a VDS? I have a couple of OpenVZ and KVM. Is VDS any diff?

    Now days VDS and VPS are usual different names of one thing. We use KVM as hypervisor.

    How can this provider do so cheap!

    Very simple: Moore's law and market competition.

    I came across this site as well and was wondering the same thing. It requires you to make a deposit before you can even see any of the information. I was sketched out by the whole process so I ended up not paying, but would love to hear from someone that has used them before. I am especially interested if the $0.79 a month plan gives you the option to pick Dallas, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Bangalore, and Moscow.

    Thank you very much for your review. Now we understand that it is not good idea take money first, so we are working on adding free trial for test our service.

    Currently only Moscow is available, but we are working on adding new locations, corona-virus slightly changed our plans.

    Dallas and Amsterdam will be available very soon. Hong Kong, Bangalore seems will need more time.

    Hi guys!
    I work at HostVDS.com and will try to answer all your questions.
    First of all, we are not scammers, we are just trying to make a cloud, like DO or Vultr, at the best price. :)
    Feel free to ask your questions here - I will try to reply.

    Nice to meet you! Sorry for my comment earlier with some assumptions (too late to edit). Glad you exist! Best of luck.

    One question - what is your DC in Moscow?

    M9Plus datacenter, it is a part of msk-ix.ru

    VDS is a Virtual Dedicated Server. Basically it’s a VPS with dedicated resources/no overselling.

    But I agree with @james50a if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

    Yeah, no TOS, no company about, and as @jamespeach mentioned, like it just wants your CC info to "activate" the account. Hetzner does something similar, but there isn't even any info on the company, so stay away.

    They do take PayPal as well, they seem to accept almost anything, and you can deposit any amount. I can't tell if its a scam, or just poorly designed and translated.

    I can't press that button within their CP, so it might just be a poorly designed site. Surprised they created a whole new one rather than using WHMCS/Blesta/Clientexec/Hostbill....

    Yes, we build our own billing.

    Weird that they have a "Donate" link on the footer. Hmmm, yeah no thanks.

    This link is not for donate us, this link for our customers, so you can donate for the hosting of some project hosted with us. I hope I talk clear :).

    VDS is just marketing BS for hypervisor-based VPS.

    Yeah, in early time VPS called only container based servers, now days seems it is synonyms.

    Well, interesting. I actually topped up $1 and got a server. Delivery is instant, and the panel looks pretty decent. Only Russia location is available; other locations are greyed out. Billing can be hourly or monthly, and the price is indeed $0.79/month for 1 GB RAM and 10 GB storage.

    Considering the price, the result is pretty acceptable. I'll keep monitoring the server and see if the uptime is good.

    With $1.59 plan you will get much better, for example 200mbps, not 50mbps :).

    Considering the price, the result is pretty acceptable. I'll keep monitoring the server and see if the uptime is good.

    Thanks for taking the plunge! Sad to hear it's only Russia, that's the only one I didn't want.

    As I said we are working on it.

    HostVDS.com - like DO or Vultr but from $0.79/mo :)
