Well, finally purchased from 5gbps.com
for 26$/m + 2$ for extra IP and cPanel from 3rd party, as theirs was few dollars expensive. They are totally unmanaged. Specs are as follows:
- 8 x Intel Xeon CPU
- 1Gbps Unmetered (10Gbps node)
- 250GB Dedicated HDD
- 3GB Dedicated RAM
- Linux or Windows OS
- Location: Netherlands / Europe
- Datacenter: FDCServers
- XEN Virtualization
- 99.9% Uptime SLA
- SolusVM Control Panel
No restrictions on anything legal...even torrents allowed. No fair use on bandwidth!!!
I wonder how to measure the processing power of a vps.....oversold or not...everything has a size tag...ram is x gb, hdd is x gb.....how do I calculate the labelled processor spec or test the processing power to compare it to any dedicated cpu.....50% of Intel i3..x Mhz ? Any way to estimate this...even post purchase ?
Regards & thanks to all who contributed to my thread.
Was on the above package for two years. Service was good, as far as unmanaged goes, so don't have any complaints. Was happy with them.
However, the provider has introduced a FUP and reduced cores and increased prices.....so am in the market for a new provider. Rather than create a new thread, I decided to use the old one here.
So request options. Would be buying one vps for regular testing with above specs immediately, second for production with 4-5 gb ram and if possible couple more processor cores, in two months and third for replication & backup (with above specs) in a different data center one month after that. Would like one provider and single billing and prices cheap/reasonable/competitive to above, for small one man firm, in location where US Dollar is multiplied by 65.
My major issue is unmetered bandwidth. In an earlier provider I was billed huge amount due to some virus problem n automated billing and me not paying due attention, no fault of provider, of course. But since then, I always take unmetered options, with/without reduced bandwidth post fup. With the above provider, I barely used 10% of the fup, he introduced later. But this is an issue with me. I like the comfort of an unmetered bandwidth, though I won't probably be a heavy user.
Looked at option of using cloud providers like Amazon etc., but all seem to be much more expensive than vps options, though I would gain in dynamic vps launch. Of course, unlimited bandwidth is not possible with/without fup with them. But would like to know if there are any low cost options in that segment though. But just curiosity here, don't really expect to get anything. Checked only Amazon & Rackspace thoroughly.
Best regards & thanks.
