SwarmHost Via this WHT offer. SwarmHost has released a low end VPS that is not available on their website but can be ordered with this link, at $4.99/month.

  • 128MB guaranteed/256MB burstable memory
  • 10GB storage
  • 50GB/month data transfer
  • OpenVZ/SolusVM

Can’t really tell where the servers are hosted, although from their servers page, they are selling dedicated servers from either SingleHop in Cicago IL, or HiVelocity in Tempa FL. I like their honesty on their about us page, where it stated the exact date when SwarmHost was started and incoporated (late 2009/Feb 2010). If you google the owner’s name there seems to be some interesting links, but would this be the same person (Economic Policy Examiner in Gainesville FL)?

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.

  3. I must be really nerdy because I was thinking of it in terms of Starcraft and the Zerg. Bees make more sense. However, slogan still sounds a little odd to me.

  4. Gotta admit that while I understand the phrase, I’m rather surprised that it’s there. With writing copy, you really want to try and stay away from idioms (At least I think that’s the word I’m looking for. I’m at Bruegger’s with screaming kids this morning.) that may or may not be understood by others.

    Not that I’m suggesting that it be removed. It’s their site and they’re allowed to have in there whatever they want.
