RackNerd have the following promotional offers on KVM servers, so you might want to give these a look if you’re in the market and looking for KVM options on a budget. They also appear to have expanded to many more locations than when I signed up with them a while back, as well (which was only L.A. at that time).

As a note, I’ve been using RackNerd for a while now for KVM servers that I needed. They’ve not only been one of the more affordable options for VPS in general (especially KVM), but have also had great performance for what I use them for (primarily running old game servers with Wine emulation).

They’re not the first provider that I’ve used, nor are they the only provider I find worth doing business with. I’ve also suggested HostUS, and still do – especially as a provider with top-notch support, but HostUS is not quite as affordable in terms of specials on these types of services. I can’t say everyone shares the same experience with a given host, but I am being honest about RackNerd being good from my personal experience. While I haven’t had a lot of experience with their support and wouldn’t be surprised if they wouldn’t impress me on the same level as HostUS in that specific area, I can say that the few times I’ve contacted their support resulted in them providing me with at least an acceptable solution to my problem – even if it may not have always been the specific one I was hoping for.

Either way, for the price, you really aren’t taking a huge risk in trying them out for these types of services. If in a year from now you’re unhappy, let your wallet speak for you. I, on the other hand, expect to be renewing with them for the foreseeable future. Anyone who has their own experiences to share are certainly welcome to comment and do so. I’d much rather know what others think of the services so that I also have a better idea outside of how I specifically use them.

Update

Some previous promos that were offered and that appear to still be active (these were the ones I personally bought into myself earlier this year), can be found below. Again, they’ve expanded to include quite a few additional locations as opposed to just the L.A. location that was available when I first signed up with them. You can use the provided test IPs in the drop-down list with the locations to ping from your location to see the difference in latency times. I’ve also requested a relocation for my existing services and they appear to be willing to do that for me without any mention of a charge to do so.

These specials were posted on Low End Box‘s website when I found them. Note that the product page at RackNerd still has only L.A. listed for location of these specials, but you will see all of the additional location options in the drop-down menu when setting up the service.

HostUS VPS Specials

These are two specials that HostUS is offering on their OpenVZ VPS services. It hasn’t been stated when the specials will end, but I’d grab them while they’re available if you’re in the market. Beyond the specials, they appear to have very affordable VPS options available, and I believe they’re in the process of adding KVM options as well. Worth a look if you are considering purchasing a VPS.
