LoomHosts – $4.99 192MB OpenVZ VPS in Dallas

LoomHosts I said I was going to wait a month and apparently they are still here :) So here we have it. “Jack Pauling” from LoomHosts emailed me a few times getting the offer to be listed on LowEndBox. The owner also posted two offers on LowEndTalk trying desperately hard to get any exposure. So, for $4.99/month you can get the LowEndBox VPS from them. Direct sign up link here.

  • 192MB memory
  • 30GB storage
  • 200GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

PayPal is the only payment option here. Servers with Limestone Networks in Dallas TX (test IP: 64.31.30.29). Pretty standard ToS but they also forbid any IRC connectivity, Minecraft servers and porn sites. LoomHosts is Singapore based, with domain registered in early July and having both NS on the same server. As far as I can see, Boltersdriveer (who posted LoomHosts offers on LET) is still the same young Singaporean teenage guy who ran BoltHub.net to the ground in March. I would probably take the risk if it’s an outstanding offer, which unfortunately, it is not. $5/month can get you quite a few much bigger packages in Texas :)

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. Is a fair amount of hard drive space though at 30 gigs.

  2. Hello there, yes, I may be the one who ran it “to the ground”, though the VPS section at that time was indeed run by someone else after all :-)

      Yes, I do have knowledge of this. I used to work for BoltHub too, Shawn was the main guy there who really ran it to the ground.

  3. “but they also forbid any IRC connectivity” – would like to clarify this. We allow IRC, if it doesn’t affect the other users on the network.
