Writer on LowEndBox

After waiting for almost two months, my account has finally been upgraded by Chief (the new admin of LowEndBox) to give me privileges to post offers without waiting for someone to approve them. Approx 2 months ago, I applied and was given the opportunity to write for LowEndBox as a test writer.

During this time, I wrote the following posts on LowEndBox

  1. OnePoundWebHosting – £4.40 512MB Xen VPS in UK
  2. EaseVPS – $3.99/Month, 512MB OpenVZ VPS in Manchester, Jacksonville & Kansas City
  3. Corgi Tech – $6 512MB VMWare VPS in UK
  4. Jolly Works Hosting – $15/Year 128MB OpenVZ VPS in Phoenix
  5. sshVM – $6/Quarter 128MB OpenVZ VPS
  6. IperWeb – €1.52/Month 192MB OpenVZ VPS in Italy

Enjoyed working with the team especially KuJoe of SecureDragon.net
