Hi Folks,

ORDER LINKS: http://lowendspirit.com/locations.html

All servers come with IPv4 connectivity with 20 TCP and UDP ports forwarded to your local IPv4 on your VPS, think about the way your home router holds the external IP and your PC has a local e.g. 192.168.0.67 address, this works in much the same way.

If you do not have native IPv6 or an IPv6 tunnel set up at home you can simply connect via the serial console (SolusVM) update your sshd port to one of the ports assigned to you and then connect over IPv4 as normal.

So what if you want to host a website but dont want a funky URL with an odd port number like domain.com:4453 ?, not a problem, you have 2 options.

1) As haproxy runs on all lowendspirit nodes you simply need to request a reverse proxy entry, when your user asks for your domain.com haproxy reads the TCP header finds domain.com and forwards that on to your VPS look at http://forum.lowendspirit.com this sits behind haproxy on a local IP address.

2) If you use cloudflair then you can use the full IPv6 <-> IPv4 translation they offer example here: http://forum.lowendspirit.com/viewtopic.php?id=441

Common uses for these servers include:

Teamspeak 3 server

Shoutcast

irc clients and bouncers

private proxy

VPN/OpenVPN

Many people buy more than 1 and replicate the data between them for very affordable HA/DC independent websites

Retro game servers

What you cannot do:

Tor (of any type)

Open Proxies

Torrents - Yes this means via a VPN/Proxy too

Still not sure if this is right for you? ask any questions you have below or here

@Amitz very so far, seem like a friendly bunch people people and I like how much back end effort they have put in to their system.

Thank you very much, Anthony!

And network-wise? Have they found a replacement in case that Atrato says "good-bye"?

And support-wise? Can you tell me something about their typical response times to support requests?

Please excuse all those questions, but I am thinking about going them but still hesitate...

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards

A

No problem.

Network is fine, no issues, as far as I know they are introducing level 3 within a few weeks, all support tickets have been attended to promptly (minutes not hours) even outside of normal working hours.

I really cant complain for a self managed service, you get a dedicated IPMI/KVMoIP, access to remote reboots and power port, automated reloads. honestly it is fine.

Great, Anthony - Your judgement is very much appreciated! You have been around long enough to be considered a real good source for a review - Thank you for that!

I got one of the containers in each location and the project it's simply awesome.

Going back to the really low end services it's great :D
