LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

HyperExpert Deadpools and It Might Be My Fault

Let me tell you a story.

Back in 2020, I was preparing for Black Friday on LowEndTalk and I saw an offer from a provider I’d never heard of: HyperExpert.

The offer?  1GB VPS for $1/YEAR!

And the order links were active.

But that wouldn’t be fair.  So I waited until it had been posted and then ordered one.

It was great.  I used it for an Inbucket mail drop, a VPN, and a monitoring node.  When it came up for renewal, I paid another dollar.  Then again in 2022, and 2023.

And then I saw this in my inbox:


It’s with a heavy heart that I must share the news of my decision to shut down Hyper Expert. I understand this may be disappointing, and I value your understanding in this challenging situation.

I started Hyper Expert in 2017, and it has been an amazing journey and a great experience meeting so many bright individuals who have helped keep this small community afloat. Hyper Expert became more than just a VPS provider to some. It became an experience and a community where we share the latest tech news, laugh, and provide feedback to one another. I have learned so much from this experience, which I am grateful for and will forever remember.

Discord: https://discord.gg/wFvF43C

I am committed to making this transition as smooth as possible. Starting immediately, I will suspend all due invoices and provide customers with a free 14-day period to move their data to another solution. After the 14-day period, all the hardware will be shut down and decommissioned. Once the hardware is shut down, I will not be able to retrieve any data. If you’ve subscribed with yearly payments, I will issue partial refunds for the remainder of your term.

I will keep the Discord community alive, so please stop by, ask questions, and have fun. We may collectively come up with the next best thing!

Thank you, and wish you all the best of luck!

Hyper Expert


So this works out to 43 months for $4, or less than 10 cents a month.

It was great when it lasted.

    Horrible business model but a great way of handling the end of their company. Kudos!
