    I will wait and watch. In worst case, it might be a reseller earning from a fancy offer. Many hosts offer reseller packages under $10.

    I did some reverse IP check.. The shared IP resolves to the OVH.com
    Code:
    https://myip.ms/info/whois/158.69.218.196
    Can someone be selling this under OVH reselling program?
    I don't have much knowledge on digging more into such thing. It'd be really appreciated If someone could find out more.

    Upon analyzing the domain age, social media presence, SSL certificate etc, I assume its been setup by someone who is not serious with this.
    I suggest everyone who bought this to be very careful on hosting the valuable data there. Stick with less valuable things for testing purpose.

    Code does not working. They told that
    "The promotion code you entered has been applied to your cart but no items qualify for the discount yet - please check the promotion terms"

    I'm also not so sure about the trustworthiness of the website.
    Check out these DA & PA metrics, seems fishy -

    Thanks for sharing.
    Doing it like this worked for me, even with Paypal:
    Unlimited plan -> billing cycle 12 months -> "Everest2019" code -> Paypal

    I've already mentioned this before - I found this offer in another forum.
    I'm not related to this site by any means. In fact I also doubt about the trustworthiness of this site.
    So please use this site at your own risk.
