BetterVPS, part of ShoveHost, is proud to go live! We have completed extensive internal testing of our systems and there should not be any problems with the automated provisioning process, however don't be mad if we manually have to activate your order :)

The plan:

  • "Better One"
  • 512MB Dedicated RAM
  • 2 Virtual CPUs (2 Shared E3 Cores)
  • 20GB Dedicated Storage
  • 1TB Monthly Transfer on a 1Gbps Port
  • 1 IPv4 address (IPv6 coming soon!)
  • $5/month with offer, usually $10/month.
Servers are from Incero in Dallas, TX. 

Now, the promo: enter code "BETA" during checkout and get 50% off FOR LIFE!

Good choice of domain name. Thanks for not choosing ShoveBetter / BetterShove ;)

Btw $0.00 offers? Is this intentional to grab some free riders as promo or a fat finger?

Sorry about that - I was testing this morning and forgot to change it back. I've changed the price to the normal $10 one (with promo it's $5/month).

Thank you, those have been fixed. In my defense, I saw the "seperate" this morning and was going to fix it but got distracted and forgot about it :)

There seem to be some problems with our upload speed - I'm communicating with our server provider right now to get this slowness fixed...

I'm going to report out on this because it's kinda funny. Several signups today of people that used to be at ChicagoVPS (I checked old IPs for the domains they used). Keep the orders comin' guys! If you've got any questions again don't hesitate to reach out to [email protected] :)

I guarantee you that the server is within that network, or a short ways away. The point in showing a speed test is to determine actual performance between two points. Masking the IP makes the whole thing pointless.

Because wget is so difficult to use?
It requires a source to download from. One that you have access to so you can test the upload speed as well. Ultimately the results depend on the server you choose, same as with Speedtest.net. The difference is that you can use Speedtest with several different servers around the globe and only require access to your own computer.

On-topic: What's the main difference between the BetterVPS and ShoveHost services? In a couple of sentences.
