What type of LEB is the most attractive to you?

What type of LEB is the most attractive to you?

Hi all

I've offered VPS's before (sold out) but they were more high-end type of boxes. I'm seriously considering offering LEB's for a change; but I'd like to know what your favourite type of LEB is! Is it low specs with a low price or high ram for $7 like CVPS or is it something totally different? Thanks in advance

John :)

  • Specialized Ultra Pseudo Plasma Enriched Titanium Encased Spectral Virtual Private Servers for under $5 have to be my most favourite.

  • every people have their own interest.

    Some with lower price, some with higher/lower RAM, some with higher/lower disk space, some with more/less bandwidth.

    Just don't break your own TOS/ Privacy Policy, and don't bashing another provider.

    But they must include free lemons too.

  • I like the big BW things. Don't need uptime (well, 90% or so is satisfactory), don't need much cpu, ram, even disk, but need low price :) M

    As a LET user, I'd say I want:

    24 or more Cores 16GB RAM 10TB HDD Unmetered 1Gbps 100% uptime 24/7/365 support via phone

    All for $0.01/month

    As a provider I'd say, do your own research instead of asking. You're not going to get a common answer, neither are you going to get anything conclusive because everyone wants the most value for their money. Everyone's requirement is different, so is their budget.

    I bet you'd pay upto 5¢ for that.

  • VPS specifications depends on the requirements of the site/application, but my preference is always for recent hardware with at least some basic high availability features (SAS drives on RAID; dual power supply; ECC memory).

    Important: - Xen/KVM - Native IPv6 routed subnet - Good bandwidth - ...or exotic location (Asia, Middle East, Africa) - Instant rDNS via SolusVM - ...or delegation to custom nameservers (IPv6 rDNS) - Tor and IRC allowed

    Not as important: - Disk space - Many CPU cores - More than one IPv4 - (Semi-)Management (not needed at all)

    I mostly use LEBs for gameservers so HDD and bandwidth aren't important to me since a 24 slots Source Engine server will run on 128mb RAM. Im satisfied with low RAM combined with a decent stability.

  • @miTgiB said: I bet you'd pay upto 5¢ for that.

    I actually posted $1, but upon reconsideration of how everyone wants cheap, I figured the extra zeros makes it flashier (just like in a real advertisement).

    But yeah, I'd be more than willing to pay $1 for it and come back complaining the moment there's 1 second of downtime or if I can't push 1Gbps all the time. :)

    @jkr1711

    To addon, research and offer not just what you think the users want, but also what you CAN. Don't jump into offering more than what you can, then later realise you're digging your own grave. End of the day your customers would rather your service stays online and stable, rather than you end up being deadpooled because you offered more than you could handle.

  • Thanks all for the (humourous) advise I'll definitely take some market research. @Kenshin good point, I'll start looking for some more staff first (got 3 at the moment in different time zones)

  • @jkr1711 I'm always looking for a good deal and for me, that means enough ram, cpu, io and webspace + fairly stable + fairly good bandwidth + good support to top it off. I know it actually sounds too good to be true for some of the low prices you see but I have to commend CVPS for their offer... so far its been the most perfect for me so far. BuyVM second in line as well. IRC allowed is another thing I like. Hope this helps you in your research as well. Good luck ;)

    IPv6 & setting rDNS via Solus if that's the panel used (more providers need these!). Xen/KVM is always a bonus.

    Unusual locations are nice :)

    Uptime is very important for me.

  • I like really cheap LEBS :P. $1-3 range 'n stuff.

  • I'm easy to please: 500GB+ on 1Gbit, at least 128MB RAM, within LEB pricing.

    +1 and bandwidth at least 1TB

    @jkr1711 You can go through the Offers section and observe member's comments/reactions/popularity..

  • After trying out various providers (most of them were OpenVZ) the last month or two this is a must for me: XEN/KVM IPv6, rDNS for both v4/v6, be able to control rDNS via control panel is fantastic Good ping/traceroute from/to my location Server hardware, no desktop computers :P Good support

    Although I prefer XEN or KVM, I would consider OpenVZ if it had all the modules needed for PPTP, OpenVPN etc... like BuyVM has, but unfortunately many of them don't.

  • @emilv said: Although I prefer XEN or KVM, I would consider OpenVZ if it had all the modules needed for PPTP, OpenVPN etc... like BuyVM has, but unfortunately many of them don't.

    Anyone who uses SolusVM for CP shouldn't have much trouble with this at all, it's just about pre-loading kernel modules then the rest is for the customer to enable via SolusVM. Don't discount OpenVZ so quickly, will probably save you some money.

    Yes, I know its possible. It's just a question how willing the provider is to fix the issue. I asked 3 providers fix my issue, one fixed it immdiately (HttpZoom), another a day later (Cubixcloud) and I'm still waiting for the 3rd one to fix it (BudgetVM).

    Another thing about OpenVZ (if it does not support native IPv6) I would want to be able to use a tunnel until native is available. :)

  • @emilv said: Another thing about OpenVZ (if it does not support native IPv6) I would want to be able to use a tunnel until native is available. :)

    There's always the option of constant nudging to get your provider to do the IPv6 tunneling instead of yourself. Enable it for all clients and you can claim "IPv6 enabled over tunnel", better than no IPv6 completely. Good for business!

  • I do not know about most people here, but for me I look for the following:

    Xen/kvm * 20-35gb hd * 100-500gb bw (based on location, more if in US) * 128/256mb ram (256-512mb swap) * at least 1 cpu core * 1ipv4 and at least 1 ipv6 ip * IRC allowed is a plus $4-$5.00/month USD

    OpenVZ * 20-35gb HD * 128mb ram (256mb burst) * 100-500gb bw (based on location, more if in US) * fair share for CPU (at least share % of 2 cores) * 1ipv4 and at least 1 ipv6 ip * IRC allowed is a plus $3.00-$4.00/month USD

    if you meet this criteria, do not seem like a kiddie host, someone who is massively overselling and you have decent connectivity, you likely will have my business.

    Hope this helps.

    For me. These are the specs I need: -European based company -European based servers -Company must own hardware -12~ euro per server per month max -256/512mb of ram -5gb+ space -100gb+ traffic -staff must be friendly

    I'm currently with four leb hosts which match the above :-)

  • ChicagoVPS has prices a lot of providers (i say a lot, but there are more and more everyday getting closer) that many cannot simply achieve. 2GB RAM 50GB HDD 1 IPv4 2TB Transfer 100Mbit link

    It's been something we can achieve and sustain as 2 years later after our first leb, we are still here. :)

    By the way, we are working on some more ridiculous deals soon(trademarked by BuyVM)! :)

    For me as a user of a few LEB's, it must be Xen/KVM, 10GB HDD at least, and 500GB+ bandwidth. It can be either a 100Mbit or 1000Mbit link. It must also have at least 1 IPv4. IPv6 is optional but a nice thing to have.

  • @NanoG6 said: Mind to share a little bit? ;)

    yeah!

  • I like LEBs with high RAM (2GB+), less than $10/month

  • what about mixed types of offers. like SD. suits different types of purpose.

  • A LEB with something unique about it, for example;

    A shared 10gbit port Insane disk I/O from RAID SSDs Unique location

    Like New Zealand! I need a LEB in New Zealand (Australia would do, I guess) with a fair amount of international bandwidth.

  • I used to be Xen/KVM only but now I'll take one of those newer kerneled OpenVZ vps with VSWAP/Cache or whatnot, I find the performance is great and prices are lower for more resources (and things are especially good when this is teamed up with SSD/SSD Caching)

    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!
