      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

      -MannDude

What services are running?

  • Lighttpd + php
  • MySQL server
  • Agile project desktop / project management

 

Support:

No tickets needed yet.

The answers to simple questions were fast, well written and polite.

 

 

Overall experience:

They offer quite a lot for the money.

  • Free DNS hosting
  • Free SMTP relay
  • Unmetered 100Mbps connection
  • 5GB SSD disk space

They come with an integrated control panel within WHMCS:

yourserverse.JPG

So no SolusVM or any additional login is needed to control the vps.

Since this month they are offering IPv6 too.

Stockholm is not the cheapest town to offer vps services and so I am very pleased with the service I get for my money.

I will look at the network speeds and how they handle the unlimited traffic thing.

But it looks like they can handle it.

The support is polite and even answers simple questions on Sunday at 7 p.m.

 

If I had to say anything bad about this provider it would be the lack of swap.

But this is currently the only bad thing I can say about Yourserver.se.

 

 

Update status:

yourserv1.JPG

Only 4 minutes of network downtime for the last 33 days.

CPU (x4) and I/O are great.

The vps itself is snappy.

Network depends on the route - stellar within the northern countries and ok for the rest of the world.

 

I will refresh the uptime report every two months.

Review is great advertisement  ;) I've bought mine.

 

Anyway seem like they've removed the bandwidth bar though.

Time for an update:

yourserv2.JPG

So 1 minute and 4 seconds of network downtime since the last update.

Uptime of the vps itself is 72 days.

CPU and I/O are great.

Network connection depends on your target.

Download speeds from the US are beyond 300kB/s, but beyond 1M/s within the EU.

So 3 minutes of network downtime since the last update.

Uptime of the vps itself is 120 days.

CPU and I/O are great.

Network connection depends on your target.

Download speeds from the US are getting faster and the connections within the EU are good.

The network itself is still capped:

Time for an update:

So 1 hour 28 minutes and 33 seconds of network downtime since the last update.

Uptime of the vps itself is 189 days.

CPU and I/O are ok, but the vps itself is not as snappy as the months before.

Looks like the node is now filled up with customers...

So how do you monitor the network uptime? Is it for multiple locations, or from a single one, or what? Sometimes random things on the internet break / routes flap between two random hosts, which is not always the fault of the provider of connectivity of one of those hosts.

It is statuscake.com.

I set the alert to "more than 5 confirmation servers at the same time to display downtime".

Are you still getting 11.5M/s speeds recently? Have a 256MB vps as well and uptime is great, but network has been like this for me since around end of September:

@k0nsl: thanks for the results. Maybe something's up with the node I'm on? Those stats are similar to when I first got the vps, it's only been like this lately. Took some 30 minutes to complete.

      Hi ,this is my review on hudsonvalleyhost.com  , two months ago i got a managed VPS from them and here is my results :    - first ,there entire IP range is blacklisted on Spamhaus SBL , not for sending SPAM but for sending ALL kinds of viruses and malware ,as Spamhaus said  here :  https://www.spamhaus.org/sbl/query/SBL228367    means that ,ALL emails coming from there ip's will be marked as SPAM (even if they are not ) and even ALL domains hosted on there ip's will be blacklisted too . the funny thing is that you cannot do anything about it ,because hudsonvalleyhost have to contact spamhaus directly ,and you have nothing to do with that .   - second , there sales team said that they allow email marketing activities on the server ,but , after i paid for it ,the support team said NO they do not allow email marketing on there servers ,and guess what ,they don't offer a refund too .   so ,basically i paid for the VPS ,spend more than 300 $ to setup my mailer and finally i got a blacklisted ip's with a very bad customer support and no refund .   this hosting provider is a wast of time and money ,so ,buyers BE AWARE !!!

      Hey all, 
       
      So it has almost been a year since I have been with Cloudshards. So here's my experience with them: 
       
      I've heard a lot of good things about Cloudshards and the prices are really amazing so I decided to spin up a 2GB OpenVZ with them on 27/03/2014. As of now, I have 2 VPS with Cloudshards and they are working really great. Although the company name has the word 'cloud' in it, Cloudshards doesn't provide Cloud Hosting services yet. 
       
      Uptime: 10/10
       
      So far, no downtime in terms of both network and hardware. They have some downtime once every few months due to scheduled network maintenance or upgrade but they gave a good window of 3 to 5 days before carrying it out so that all the customers will be well prepared for the scheduled downtime. 
       
      Network: 10/10
       
      Their network connectivity worldwide has very low latency and is really superb! Connectivity to Asia was especially great and I've gotten only 160ms from Singapore. :) 
       
      Here's a ping to my Los Angeles Cloudshards VPS

       
      Support: 9/10
       
      Their support team replied within 4 hours and they read through my issues carefully. I've once experienced unreliable network connectivity and opened a support ticket with them. Within a few hours, they replied to me and told me it was because there was a DDoS on the node and offered to transfer me to another node. I accepted the transfer and it was done within minutes! :)
       
      Prices: 10/10
       
      I spun up a few VPS with lots of RAM and they only cost $7 for 2GB. For the price and service offered, it is a really great deal! They also offer KVM storage with lots of space and it is very affordable too. I've also asked for a customized upgrade from 2GB to 4GB and they did so without much hesitation. 
       
      Overall, their VPS offer very smooth performance with great network speeds and latency at really affordable price. 
       
      Thank you Cloudshards for giving me such a memorable experience! :)
