If you are not happy with the server and paying monthly, just ask for a pro-rated refund… Whatever time is left in the month you’ll be fully refunded for. This policy shows that we care about having great performance and up time, all the time!

If you have used their service, please share your experience below with the rest of the community. We would love to know if they can really walk the talk!

    The name ‘LowLatency’ is very misleading.

        You can always ping 8.8.8.8 from within their network, I usually get about 0.4-0.8 ms on good hosting places.

    Just bought a VPS. Everything seems fine except their SolusVM is NOT secured by SSL. Ie. Username and password is being transmitted as clear text. Seriously? Sounds like amateur hour.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
