LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Hello world!

Date/Time: February 1, 2008 @ 4:48 pm, by LowEndAdmin

Welcome to LowEndBox.com, a place to discuss running very low end virtual private servers. I will be listing VPS plans that I found on the web that cost less than USD$7 per month, and how to run various services on them.

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. Nice site! But why $7? I’d suggest to increase $7 to $15, so more good vps can be included.

  2. @weakish — increasing the threshold to $15 would mean that *a lot* of VPS providers will get included, and many are offering 256MB+ memory for that amount per month, i.e. no where near “low end” in the VPS market.

    $7 is also comparable to shared hosting, make it a great alternative to your typical shared hosts.

  3. Yes, You’re right. $15 may not be low-end any more. But I still think $7 is a bit low. I guess $10 may be a good idea. A lot of shared hosting plans are offered at $9.xx per month
