lowendbox not so lowend price?

Does anybody know what happen to lowendbox price drastically increased for mostly every provider, openvz can cost more than $100 per year. Does colocrossing increase their price affect those vps provider? I hope LET provider do not follow their step to massively increase price. I hope it is ok for this post to be here, it is about: "Low End Talk".

    It's like some mass insanity.

  • Don't buy there at all. There are other nice hosts, here on LET.

  • I have something I need to get off my chest:

    I took a gamble a few months ago now on a KVM from one of the LEB hosts, it's a 4 core 4GB KVM in Buffalo for $40/year. It has been honestly running like a charm. Strong on plow. No downtime except me rebooting for updates. Fast network (it's CC, I assume..) which is surprising to me.

    I'm not even idling it, to be perfectly honest, I'm running my "dirty" apps on there. The ones that tend to go bonkers on the rare occasion, like Jackett and Sonarr and Radarr, and start eating RAM or whatnot. It's my backup Plex server too. It's not like I abuse this thing, but i'm not going easy on her.

    The price on the site, etc has been jacked up a lot, which seems to be a more sustainable price, although not exactly as low as we're used to here in LET.

    If this manages to last the remainder of the year, I'd be shocked, but when renewal comes it will make me think twice. $40 a year is kinda decent but the $120/year they want for it now, nah mate.

    Strange days indeed.

    They've gone from one extreme to the other. From: how can you resist that deal even from that host to why would you pay for that deal at that host?

    Which is actually a good thing for LET, the allure of the shitty LEB hosts disappears when the price is equal or higher than a better, community-regulated LET host.

    In my opinion, of course..

  • There's a rule in here, long time a go. New provider can't use yearly price. But it seems most of the posts on LEB were on yearly basis.

    Just imagine, if all those reader/buyer, did not do their research before purchase, and buy the service for one year, and have some problem, they might just waste their money.

    But, I can't make a comment on that site now, since someone block my email from commenting on LEB :expressionless:

    When bean counters are the bosses, expect the acquisition to yield 2x to 3x returns in 5 to 7 years. .

    More ways than one to get surprised, there could be BF deals that could indicate exactly the opposite

    Except that most people know of LEB before LET. LEB offers are advertised on google unlike LET.

    Don't be so serious. It's just a forum. No one cares what you think anyway.

  • its the game plan to help the good LET providers here. please do not misunderstand the kind intentions.

    It seems CC hosts got inspiration from Hostmantis to hike prices! That's the reason the customers (will) are now paying 3x to 4x the original pricing at the renewal and new purchases.

    Also, LowEndBox should rename themselves as HighEndBox subject to price hikes?

    My prediction would be a crazy price drop for BF. How much lower can one go?

    So mark up something worth 100 to list at 400.
    Offer 70 percent discount --> discounted price at 120
    Make an extra 20 bucks?

    They also have a 2x resource pool for $20/year but you can pay $1.33 monthly, which I found odd. It's terrible, slow oversold nodes and a gamble if you can even get a vps launched. For a buck thirty three it's cheap entertainment. Would probably suit those who need to change IP all the time.. dirty dirty servers.

    Not for use with good potassium.

    Edit: I really want to clarify this is in NO way a recommendation!! Do everyone a favor and buy from LET, not that shit show leb. Your sanity will thank you. If you know exactly what you're getting into, it's a fun broken cheap toy to hack around with.

    All those CC brands on LEB are created by Chris Fabozzi, you have to ask him.

    If a $10 VPS doesn't work, try a $15 or 20 VPS first. It might work as good as a $100 VPS. Then your save your money and still get the same service.
