Sometimes the best things in life are free. (Racknerd Review)
#1
I recently was awarded a free VPS for 1 year from a recent promotion by https://racknerd.com

I've been a client at racknerd since august, and have had a positive experience thus far, so I was very happy to win this prize.  My first service is a 3vcpu 4gb ram vps with 45gb ssd. It has great networking, the cpu load almost never goes over 50%, and no noticeable downtime. A fine vps: my only comment would be that the disc speed could be improved. Here's the YABS of my old Racknerd vps:

This cost me 77$USD over 2 years. At less than 40$ a year, I'm very satisfied.

Then there's my new racknerd promo. It's a smaller package; only .5gb ram and 15gb of disk, and 1vcpu. I like that it comes provisioned with swap (some providers don't). I find it curious that nested virt is enabled... does it have much use with half a gig of ram? doubtful....

At first glance, you might not think it worth the 27$ a year they ask for it. But the YABS tell a different tale:

The Ryzen processor and NVME disk make a huge difference in the promo VPS. I'm very impressed by performance with such small specs. While I am (only slightly) sad that my older vps seems overpriced and underpowered now, grats to RN for making huge strides in improving the performance of their service, and for allowing me to participate in this promotion.
