VMHaus Review


I've been seeing a bit about VMHaus recently and what's really brought my attention to them is their custom control panel, Bosnai (which is very clean) and their NVMe Cloud Servers. Seeing as I'm located in the pacific I settled with their Los Angeles location.

For $7/month I couldn't really argue with their plan that provides 2GB RAM, 30GB Storage, 2 CPU Cores and 4TB Bandwidth. While the disk space is a little less than I would like for this server (personal websites and some storage) I think I'll make do just fine.

I've now got this server running CentminMod and very happy with the results. 3 websites are happily running.

I've run a benchmark which gives a fair idea on what this server is capable of. I really have no complaints.

I will update this thread in the future and let you know if I encounter any issues. Smooth sailing so far.

They do offer a nice service, not had any issues with them at all. The lack of space is a drawback though, once my credits run out I am going to move over to Hetzner's new cloud, for nothing other than so much more NVME space.
