What services are running?

  • Ruby scripts
  • static webpage
  • openvpn
Support:

I have opened 2 support tickets during this month. All get polite answers within minutes. If I look to them:

  • Asking to enable vswap. Done.
  • Problems running Ubuntu 13.04. They moved me to a host which runs a .32. kernel. Problem solved.
Support is really fast and polite.
 

Overall experience:

I am a happy customer. Network is really good. Ping to europe is 12ms, ping to Atlanta is 100ms, ping to Tampa is 117ms and ping to Buffalo is 83ms. Perfect vpn machine. Installing and compiling Ruby was possible. Ruby scripts are running ok. I will not try to run any php scripts on it. But static content is ok.

Very nice. There seems to be an abuser on that node and that's causing the terrible I/O - Sure Jack will fix it up!

He immediately took care about it.

Updated my dd test today.
55MB/s is a little better.

I am still getting 100MB/s+ on the Hostnode though.. 

It's possible that you're doing it at the same time as someone else or something unzipping something, not to sure.

I have locked UK3 now anyway after yesterday's abuse issues took me an hour straight and 2-3 VMs were involved.

Updated the dd test. Now I/O runs as fast as the network :D

Time to update my review too.

What services are running?

  • static webpages
  • irc bouncer
  • openvpn
Support:

Not a single support ticket needed.

Overall experience:

This nice little vps is my UK vpn to enjoy Capital FM (Edinburgh), Real Radio Scotland and to watch some BBC stuff. Running all the time when ever my laptop awakes.

Due to the uptime and the good routing I moved my irc bouncer to this vps.

And still place left:

Code:
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:            64         51         12          0          0         23
-/+ buffers/cache:         28         35
Swap:           64          4         59

@wlanboy - Do you mind running and posting the results? If the network speeds are good I might get one and add it as a new speedtest location.

Code:
wget dl.getipaddr.net/speedtest.sh 2>/dev/null -O- | bash

I am using DOT-VPS 256mb KVM . Server performance is perfect for me.

Running Service :

1.lighttpd-phpfpm
2.Proxy Server,

3.Torrent Server
4.PPTP VPN

-----------------------------

Tried 3 wordpress installation, just superb speed. ram only 100-130mb used , now running only one website(piwik) which causes 95mb with other running smoothly.

Support ? No one can object about that. DotVPS support is fast and friendly.

Looks pretty good!! just so happens the 64mb VPS deal is still available, so I went ahead and ordered one :)

IP pricing is going up in the UK so these probably won't be offered in the UK for much longer.
