    5.95 for a

    1ghz
    512mb ram
    20hd
    and 1tb bandwidth.

    no control panel. but finally gave me an excuse to learn how to install and configure lxadmin which is now kloxo. so its win win.

    that seems like that would be a pretty slow server

    i'd also have no idea how to use a vpn if I got it, or what lxadmin/kloxo was
    i'm tempted to learn for $5 tho

    It's probably running virtuozzo on a contended to fuck server. You'll have the disk I/O of a 1.44MB floppy.

    Kloxo is a pile of shit by all accounts, more security holes than swiss cheese according to many.

    If you need a way to send spam, this VPS would be great. If you need a reliable system for hosting important websites, look at Slicehost or something.
