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. Interesting offer; I’ve opted not to sign up with them due to their strange terms of service in the end though.

    Hi

    We have now altered our terms and conditions and taken a lot of the unnecessary jargon out and simplifyed it. We have also changed the format on how they can be viewed to make it more easiler to access.

  3. You may want to continue to reconsider your ToS.

    “Double Opt-in” mail lists (Really called Confirmed Opt in. Double is marketer double talk) is the excepted method of running a mail list.

    Prorate is misspelled as prorata.

    Rather surprised you automatically suspend when bandwidth runs out. A simple overnight slashdotting can run up the used bandwidth and your client will be rather surprised when they wake up in the morning to find their site offline due to it with no advanced warning.

    You ban IRC bots but not servers?

    Gotta admit that I think it still needs work.
