HostUS: 2GB OpenVZ VPS Special

A belated Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to everyone.

HostUS is offering an unmanaged 2GB OpenVZ VPS between December 25th, 2016 through January 3rd, 2017 for $25/year. I know I’m late getting this up here, but just learned of it and there’s still a week left on this special.

The VPS features the following:

  • 2GB RAM (with 2GB vSwap)
  • 50GB Raid 10 Disk Space
  • 2 vCPU Cores (Fair Share)
  • 2TB Bandwidth (monthly)
  • 1 Gbps transfer speed
  • 1 IPv4 and 4 IPv6

The servers are available for the following locations:

  • Atlanta
  • Dallas
  • Los Angeles
  • Washington, DC
  • London

I’ve used HostUS for several years now and been completely happy with the service and support (when needed). I’ve received maybe 2-3 emails from them in that time stating that a VPS of mine was taken down temporarily for an issue, but it has never hindered me in any way (never seen the outage when it happens) and they have always promptly resolved the issue at hand and had the server back up with times given in the email. For what breaks down to less than $3/month for a VPS with these specs, it’s hardly a difficult choice if you’re in the market for a VPS, and they appear to never fuss about what you do on their servers as long as it doesn’t violate any government laws, result in exploited security vulnerability (such as DDoS) or cause any unjustified overhead on their server resources.

Like I said, if you’re in the market for a VPS (and OpenVZ suits your needs), these guys are probably as good as any you’ll find for the money.
