LowEndBox - Cheap VPS and Dedicated Server HostingIn February 2020 we asked our users what they wanted to see on LowEndBox and LowEndTalk. We got tons of feedback and we listened and then we got to work. Only weeks later, in March 2020, we shared an update with regards to the state of LowEndBox and LowEndTalk, after making significant changes/improvements. Hundreds of community members provided additional feedback via our LowEndTalk community, and time was spent to accommodate further enhancements to our community. 

Since March… we’ve made a lot more improvements, and would like to take the time to highlight some of the work / enhancements for you below!

New Interview Series Added

As part of our efforts to enhance the quality of content being posted on LowEndBox, we introduced a new interview series! The goal is to publish at least one Q&A Interview Session per month. Each interview consists of anywhere from 6 to 10 questions.

We first interviewed Dustin B. Cisneros of RackNerd which turned out to be a great interview.

We then interviewed Nahian Choudhury with Nexus Bytes, which turned out to be very insightful

Please follow the interview series by checking back often on the Interviews Category Page.

Upcoming Interviews

We’ve had the opportunity to interview the following providers — we’re excited to post these! These are scheduled for listing any time between now and the year of the year.

If you are a hosting provider looking to participate in our interview series, please feel free to get in touch with us via our helpdesk.

New Specializations Section Added

Are you looking for any particular features in a VPS, such as a DDOS protected VPS? How about a High CPU, High RAM or High Storage VPS? NVMe VPS? Well, you can easily sort and filter according to your requirements by just going to LowEndBox.com and within the green section under the “Specializations” column in the header table.

Social Sharing Fixed on LEB

You can now share LowEndBox posts on LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook with a click of a button.

Community Industry News

We recently called all individuals and hosting providers alike to submit interesting news that’s worthy of being shared. So far we’ve gotten plenty of news worthy bits and we are looking for even more.  

Throughout the coming months, we’ll be publishing interesting, industry-related news (fresh and unique content) delivered to you at LowEndBox.com

Email List Feature Created

We’ve created an e-mail list where you can be notified by email when we post new offers on cheap VPS, web hosting, dedicated servers, and VPN services. You can also be notified upon postings of new tutorials, editorials, and interviews. Be sure to subscribe and tell us what you think. You can also unsubscribe at any point.

LowEndTalk Updated

As of late April of this year, we announced the upgrade of the Vanilla platform that LowEndTalk was built upon. This provides further performance enhancements and minor feature upgrades. A few more long requested plugins were added at the same time which will provide HTML features for future content.

Additionally, in April we fixed the text editor issue on LowEndTalk – providing further enhancements and posting capabilities on our LowEndTalk forum.

Poll Featured Added on LowEndBox

We added a new plugin (YOP Polls) on LowEndBox, so that we can conduct polls within certain posts. For example, we recently did a poll on “What do you use your VPS for?” and the feature worked exceptionally well. We followed up our first poll with another, this time asking “What type of virtualization do you prefer on your VPS services?” and we got great responses. 

As a result, we will be publishing more fun articles and polls throughout the coming months plus we will follow up most of the polls with an article that evaluates the data gathered so we can all benefit from the knowledge our non-scientific polls provide.

Calling all providers to be featured on LEB

In our new era of LowEndBox, all offer submissions get reviewed on a one-on-one basis, and no offer ticket is ever left unanswered. If you are a hosting provider, or if you are an individual who knows of a hosting provider that would like to be featured, please follow the instructions here to be featured on LowEndBox.

Traffic Surging

Traffic has been trending up the past few months, and for the first time in LEB/LET history, we shared traffic statistics with the community. This is all due to the content enhancements, new features/improvements outlined above, and increased community engagement. And we wouldn’t be able to do it without you – so thank you for being apart of our community!
