Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: November 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am, by raindog308

We welcomed SoftShellWeb to LEB back in August.  They gave us a nice spread of offers back then, from 1GB to 6GB, in the EU and US.  Now they’re also offering service in Taiwan!  That’s pretty cool – we don’t see a lot of offers there.  Double cool: they’re doing it at Black Friday prices!  Triple cool: they’re going all-out with their Black Friday celebrations – see office decorations below!

Here are some highlights:

  • Taiwan VPSes starting at $30/year!
  • EU/US VPSes starting at $20/year!

One cool feature of SoftShellWeb is that every month you have service with them, they plant a tree.  Seriously!  You can add 12 trees a year to Mother Earth by hosting with them.  It’s a serious commitment to green hosting and as far as I know, unique in the industry.  You can read more about their green hosting on their web site, and more about them in general in their FAQ.

The are a registered UK firm.  You can find their TOS on their website and you can pay with every form of payment ever devised by humankind: dollars, euros, bartering cows, anything.  I’m only slightly exaggerating…they take: PayPal, Alipay, Debit/Credit Card, BitCoin, UnionPay, WebMoney, Moneta, QIWI, India Netbanking, iDeal, SOFORT Banking, DOKU, DragonPay, Boleto, Banco do Brasil, Alfa-Click, Malaysia e-banking, Pago Fácil, Rapi Pago, Red Pagos, and Bancontact.

They even sent in some cool pictures of their office decked out for Black Friday – pretty cool!  Thanks for adding these, guys!  Love the spirit.

Here’s what they had to say: 

“SoftShellWeb was founded in 2019 by three friends since childhood. It started out with several servers and a single location in the Netherlands and now it has expanded its footprint into the US and Asia. As of 2020 we have also expanded our footprint with a new office space located in Slovenia, on the sunny side of the Alps! Thanks to the Low end community we have managed to grow and expand our services! We can’t wait to give back to the community that has helped us in this amazing journey.”

They’re a young company but their heart is in the right place and they look to be providing great value.  Give ’em a spin and then please share your experiences below.
