LowEndBox - Cheap VPS, Hosting and Dedicated Server Deals

Privacy Policy

Who we are & our mission

Our website addresses are: lowendbox.com and lowendtalk.com.

Some of us are paying hundreds or thousands of dollars per month on a dedicated server with multiple cores, gigabytes of memory and a huge disk array. Some of us, however, only have a few bucks spare each month to pay for a low end box…

This website is dedicated for running websites and services on low end virtual private servers, where you only need to pay a few dollars a month to get full root access. Most of them will be CPU, memory, space and bandwidth limited, but can still be a work horse if tuned properly.

We will be listing virtual server deals for less than $10 per month, shared hosting for $7 per month, reseller hosting for $12 per month and dedicated server deals equal to or less than $125 per month along with other services and managed products. We will also be writing about getting more out of your servers with helpful tutorials and guides.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments & Contact forms

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


Like many websites, we utilize Google Adwords, Google Analytics and BuySellAds for marketing and traffic tracking purposes. Certain data is collected, such as traffic counts, impressions (views) on our advertising, where traffic originated, our search engine rankings, and so on. If you are interested please familiarize yourself with the Google Adwords, Google Analytics and BuySellAds privacy policies. 

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. Both https://lowendbox.com and https://lowendtalk.com utilize Google Adwords, Google Analytics and BuySellAds. LowEndTalk utilizes a platform based account management system (https://services.lowendtalk.com) to maintain billing records for our hosting provider userbase in association with the “Provider Tag” fee model. This secure account management system is based on the WHMCS software package. Hosting providers who do not wish to participate in the Provider Tag system may request to have their information permanently deleted from this account management interface. 

Our contact information

The best way to contact us is via our help desk where we generally respond to all inquiries within 24 hours. LowEndBox and LowEndTalk are owned by a holding company — WNY IT Services, Inc. DBA LowEndBox / LowEndTalk.
