Just a quick forum post to let you know about our new September 2011 VPS Special. This time, we are having a Xen PV blowout!

10GB RAID Disk
256MB RAM + 256MB SWAP
750GB Bandwidth
FREE 5GB Offsite FTP Space
1 IPv4 + 16 IPv6
FREE Redundant DNS Hosting

A few notes about this special:

  • It is based on Xen PV for guaranteed zero overselling
  • It is 100% fully managed and cPanel/DirectAdmin are available as addons
  • Open a ticket after order for your FREE 5GB backup space
  • Instant setup
  • IRC, torrents and proxies are allowed for legal use

Price: £25 per year, including VAT!

Order link:



  • £25 = $41.25 :(

  • Hi Asim

    = $3.44/month.. Sounds ok to me!

  • With 750GB of monthly bandwidth $41.25/Year (or about $3.5/Month) is not a bad deal at all. 750GB = 2.5Mbps average use which usually costs more than $3.5 in Europe.

  • Thanks @rds100

  • Not a bad price at all, especially if someone wants IRC.

    I might be going to lose another £25...

    LOL, talking about money, I have $.15 in my PayPal and £25 in real life.

  • And I have to raise £10,000-15,000 in 2 weeks for a new project. Fun times.

  • InfinityInfinity Member, Host Rep

    Wow, in 2 weeks. I guess it's best to enter one of those Barclays Enterprise Competitions. Get yourself in the newspaper lol.

  • Sawn-off, tights over the face, post office?

  • I did consider selling myself into slavery. My girlfriend expressed interest... Not joking.

    I burned on yearly offers more than once in the past, so I am not getting one more. Make these exact specs at 2.5 GBP per month (and 7 GBP quarterly?) and also submit the offer to be posted on LEB while you're at it. Also you can keep the 'fully managed' bit, personally I do not need this at ALL, don't want to pay for management I will never ever use, and I think many here will fully agree.

    We will no longer be offering low end offers paid monthly or quarterly as it's just not worth the hassle at our end - we work hard to advertise an offer, get the hardware ready, help people move over and secure their server etc. and after 2 months customers find something slightly cheaper and move over. Then a month after that the other company has screwed them over, and they want us to do it all again for them.

    All of our low end offers are now paid yearly - you give us your commitment and we give you our best price and service :)

    If you're worried about our service, do a search on our company or get in touch with us.

    I should add that we have taken roughly 50 orders for this package already from WHT and LET and as far as I'm aware all of those 50 are very happy with their package.

    As for the management - I am aware that most LET fans are fairly clued up about servers, but at the same time many are disappointed when they find out that we aren't going to help them with a particular issue, justifying it saying that it's a one-off, or that they just need a bit of help getting started, or that they think it could be a problem at our end (which it isn't), so having the management there can be quite useful, even if you don't intend to use it. I have 6+ years experience in server management and if it doesn't cost much more I'd rather have management on my server just to know that if something does come up, I'll be taken care of.

    Would it be possible to upgrade my 100meg xen box from the previous offer to this one? In fact you could just delete the current one and replace it as theres nothing important on it. Obviously, id pay the difference :)

  • Damn it had to be a red head.....

  • @ Jtodd - opening up community forums so the users can help each other might be a way to avoid the noobs relying on support from an unmanaged host.

    What about those of us who already have monthly services from you? I assume we can continue to pay monthly?

    On another note, yep. She looks the sort. ;)

    @Deor: please open a ticket under sales and I'll look into the upgrade for you. There are some restrictions with regard to upgrading and downgrading specials, so we can check this for you.

    @Gary: If you already have a monthly plan it will continue as normal.

    Thanked by 1Deor
  • Thanks James, ticket sent.

    Thanked by 1jh
  • Thanks for the upgrade James, very good of you. Good service as ever :)

  • No worries :)
