LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Why You Want a Low End Box

Date/Time: June 5, 2021 @ 12:13 pm, by Jon Biloh

We define a “Low-EndBox” as a cheap virtual server.  “Cheap” is obviously relative and changes over time.  When LEB started, cheap cloud hosting meant a 64MB RAM server for $5 or less.  Today you can easily get 1GB of RAM (16x the resources) for the same price, and without much effort you can probably find a 2GB cheap vps for that price.

We’ve featured insanely low prices on LEB but as with everything there are trade-offs.  When you sign up with a big provider like Amazon or Microsoft, you’re paying for stability.  With Lowend hosts, you may be dealing with a one-man band.

  1. You get more for less
  2. You want predictable pricing
  3. Not everything needs production quality
  4. You like the personal touch
  5. You want exotic locations
