LowEndTalk introducing Noob of the Week

Tags: Date/Time: April 1, 2015 @ 10:01 am, by Maarten Kossen

Noob of the Week

It is with great joy that I can introduce to you the new position of ‘Noob of the Week’! Starting today is the first one-week period in which we will determine the biggest noob of this week. Next week, we will hold elections after which the chosen one will hold the most honorable title of ‘Noob of the Week’ for a full week. His name will be in pink, he will be awarded a trophy (GIF), and his legacy will forever remain in the Noob of the Week Hall of Fame Gallery (which we’re trying to open in London soon).

So, do you know anyone that made a very cool mistake or that deserves his or her name to be in pink for a week? Be sure to let us know on LowEndTalk!

Editorial: review of free web hosting panels

Tags: Date/Time: March 30, 2015 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

This week we’re featuring something special contributed by LowEndTalk member @jvnadr! It’s an extensive comparison of some of the most popular or well-known free web hosting panels.  It’d like to thank him for this very valuable contribution!


This review reflects only my personal opinions. I divided panels in two categories: those I use and have tested extremely, and those I used for little time and/or tested them. So, in the second category, the review will be shorter and “lighter” ;-)

Also, this review is from an admin and end user perspective. Not from security side. I am not an expert of coding or developing and I cannot say for sure if a panel is secure enough.

On the other hand, I have been using and still use most of those panels myself for a big variety of purposes, so, I have some basic thoughts about security and I definitely have my strong opinion about stability, ease of use, resources, functionality and bugs I may be had to deal when using them.

Do not hang me for any mistakes, especially language mistakes you may find. I am not a native English speaker and even if you say when you don’t understand something that “it’s all greek for you”, for me, Greek is my native language :-P

A last thing: I am not affiliated with any of those panels, nor any hosting company or provider. This extended review has been written just for fun and as a contribution to the members of this community. Besides, I’m just an amateur but enthusiast vps admin, something I learned as a hobby but also as a need to control my hosting and internet needs of my main business.

It is interesting to note that Host1Plus has the cheapest South Africa offer on LowEndBox, and the only host that has a Brazil location. This is good news for people on these two locations as they would enjoy very good priced services with reduced latency.

Host1Plus has been doing business since 2008 and is a division of D. E. Technologies Ltd., which is a registered company in England and Wales.
