$9.87/year 1GB RAM SSD VPS XVMLABS Deal

This vps deal may sound too good to be true but trust me this is really a steal, a VPS with 512MB of RAM and 5GB fast SSD storage for only $2.87/year.

Meet XVMLABS, another sister brand of BandWagonHost (by IT7 Networks) that brings this steal deal comes true.

Each VPS will have following specs:

  1. 5 GB lightning-fast SSD in RAID-10
  2. 512 MB DDR3 ECC RAM
  3. 100 GB Bandwidth on GigE
  4. Platform: OpenVZ + KiwiVM
  5. 1 ipv4
  6. Datacenter at QuadraNet (Los Angeles)
  7. $2.87 per year. Now $4.87/year

How’s this possible? According to their official page, because this steal deal comes with no support, no refunds, no guarantees of any kind and the service is currently still experimental so users may expect some downtime. It means if you bought one, you’d better not use it as production server.

There is more, as what I can see in shopping cart, you can add 3 more extra ipv4 IPs for very cheap price.

However they also have very strict TOS like: No torrents, No TOR and open proxies, No hacking, malware, or attacks, Absolutely no mass mailing of any kind (including triple-opt-in superenterprise mail), and CPU intensive tasks will be auto-throttled.

So if you feel you can live with that, give it a try and order via this link.

UPDATE

On June 29, XVMLabs announced new VPS plan offering 1024MB DDR3 RAM, 15GB SSD in RAID-10, and 300GB bandwidth on GigE. The awesome part is that all of those for $9.87/year (with 1 ipv4) but you can add $0.16 to get 3 more IPs (so you’ll need to pay only $9.99 in total).
