Inception Hosting | UK - KVM - NVMe SSD - Extra Disk - Free Direct Admin - Free nightly backups

Good Aftermorning all!

This was an exclusive for a while over at talk.lowendspirit but I am now making it public until the 1st October.

Inception Hosting Limited (established January 2011) this time from the UK/London. If you can find a better ‘like for like’ deal I will match it either in specs or price or both depending on what is presented!

  • 2 CPU Core (E3-1270v6 @ 3.80GHz)
  • 2 GB DDR4 Ram
  • 60 GB Pure Samsung NVMe SSD Disk space (doubled for this promo)
  • 2000 GB Bandwidth @ 1 gbit (shared)
  • 1 x IPv4 address
  • 1 x /64 IPv6
  • DDOS protection included.
  • Full daily backup of your entire disk image to a separate local raid array in the server for disaster recovery.
  • Free Direct Admin license
  • Free migration from your old host* (source must be a KVM VPS)

€5 /month or for extra value €50 /year
Order Link: https://clients.inceptionhosting.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=185

This plan usually comes with 30GB disk, it does not usually have 2 months free for an annual payment and never comes with free migration from your old host.

This will be available until Sunday late afternoon (UK/London time) after which depending on how popular it has been I will either make it mainstream for a few days or put the plan back to normal

Welcome to unicorn land!

I am also happy to convert current customers to this plan, said no host ever, until now! :slight_smile:

Thanks.
