Evolucix Avish from Evolucix emailed me to have his web hosting company listed here. They seem to have discount on their virtual servers at the moment, which drives their low end package — “Evo256” — down to $5.95/month. Order it here.

  • 256MB guaranteed/512MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Servers with Tailor Made Servers in Dallas TX (test IP: 72.9.144.4). Domain has only been registered since August 2010. A bit of search found that it might have been run by high schoolers. Interestingly that in their terms of services, they actually explicitly forbid the minors from signing up hosting services. Otherwise IRC is never mentioned, and no torrent is allowed.

The original owner of LowEndBox known as "LowEndAdmin" or "LEA" for short founded LowEndBox in 2008 and created the concept of hosting applications on low resource "Low End Boxes". After creating the roots of the community that we know today, "LEA" stepped aside and allowed others to carry the torch forward.

  1. If it’s run by a couple of high schoolers who can;t enter into a legally binding contract, doesn’t that make any agreement null and void?

      It would be valid if they had a legal business formation. Otherwise, no.

      • Can a junior be a director of a company in a legal structure? Not in where I am from. Unless they are some mature high schoolers :)

          Well, they would likely need to have their parents be the ones who sign off on the formation and then they would “work” for the business. That’s how it would go down legally. Barely any minors will do this.

          I have no idea what Evolucix is actually doing.

        • That makes it interesting if the parents signed off on what their doing. Makes me wonder about the SSL cert then and how it was obtained.

    $5 setup fee? What a joke.

    Actually, after doing some digging, it looks like one (if not both) are 18 years old. So technically, yes, they can legally enter a binding contract. If the business is registered under the 18 year old’s name, then technically speaking it is a legal business. It seems like they’re doing alright, though. No complaints and the web hosting community doesn’t seem to be up in arms about them just yet.
