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.

    Beware. Terms of service are extremely favorable to QuickWeb. For instance, QuickWeb can terminate your account and confiscate all fees if customer is deemed to engage in “intentionally disruptive behavior” to QuickWeb staff.

    “Harassment and Abuse

    QuicKWeb does not tolerate abuse of any kind towards its staffs. This includes all verbal harassment, yelling, swearing, rudeness, threats, and any intentionally disruptive behavior directed at QuickWeb or any of it’s staff or agents. Client agrees to engage us in a professional manner whether in email, helpdesk tickets, live chat, forums, or on the telephone. Any abuse will be construed as a violation of this Terms of Service agreement. No refunds will be provided for any service termination which arises as a result of a violation of this clause.”

    I’d look elsewhere…

    I had a similarly bad experience with QuickWeb. My account was provisioned incorrectly, and when I created a support ticket to request assistance, the QuickWeb staff deemed my request as “disruptive” and a violation of their ToS/AUP.

    My server was never properly provisioned, but they “suspended” my account and have refused a refund, citing their ToS.

    BUYER BEWARE!
