LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Low End Box Offers Then (2009) And Now (2020)

Back in 2009 the original founder of Low End Box, “LEA” published an early version of what became the deal marketplace of Low End Box. That page has been inactive for years and years because it is not commercially relevant anymore, but is certainly interesting to check out to see just how far we have come in the past 11 years in the hosting industry.

Specifications have grown by 10x to 100x and prices have come down at the same time. Over that same period of time the traffic on Low End Box has gone from only a few hundred visitors a month to thousands a day. Add into the mix the traffic going to Low End Talk and the combined annual traffic on Low End Box and Low End Talk is 3800% higher now than in 2009.

Take a look at the deals published in September 2009 – 11 years ago!


Now fast forward 11 years to an offer review published in May 2020 to compare (a lot has changed):
