LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

LowEndBoxTV: Thinking About a Hetzner AX41? Consider the EX44 Instead! Nearly AX102 Performance!

The Hetzner AX41 looks like an amazing deal. But for just 2 EUR more per month, you can get something that is a bit more interesting! The EX44 features an i5, 14 cores, 65GB of RAM, and dual 512GB NVMe drives and is a lot closer to the AX102 in performance. Piotr conducts a full review!
