-- - VPS 4 Review - TrK
#1
Introduction[/b][/size]

VPS - is one of the best VPS i got for free it have fast internet connection of 1Gbit, 1GB RAM and 40 GB disk storage and it is OpenVZ powered with SolusVM Control Panel. The -- Owner and me really talks less over skype but the answers i got from him are quality based but the thing that disappointed me was it is OpenVZ powered and the OpenVZ administrator can fake its Speed, SWAP and I/O speed.
So let get a closer look on VPS 4.

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

Specification-

Disk Space: 40 GB
 RAM: 1 GB RAM & 328 MB vswap
 IP Addresses: 1x IPv4
 Virtualization: OpenVZ
 Monthly Traffic: 1 TB
 Location: London or Ashburn
 Connection: 1 Gbit/s
 Control Panel: SolusVM
 Provided by: IgniteServers
 Terms:
See Links Section
 Requirements:
Backlinks to - and Post4VPS are required.[/align]
--------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to say the specifications are just too good for a free Virtual Server and also the choice of location gives it +1 point. It is good choice for my development needs and i can say i am really happy to get this VPS for my development things.

I/O (2nd run)   : 1.5 GB/s
I/O (3rd run)   : 1.5 GB/s
Average I/O     : 1.4 GB/s

But as you know its an OpenVZ Powered VPS so it is fake I/O speed it can be real but only if the Drives are supreme quality SSD powered RAID Technology drives and these too costly so the first opinion that this result is fake is true. But the only thing that makes me happy is its 3.30 GHz quad core vProcessor(yeah i am serious about that).

I guess 40 GB is enough storage to do some development things on the server.

But as i said in I/O results it is fake as it is powered by OpenVZ


Control Panel
- uses SolusVM as VPS control panel you probably used that if not below is some screen shots of SolusVM Panel
Spoiler Expand


Generally SolusVM is a pretty good control panel to manage servers and its the first choice for most of Server owners who used it before.

VPS Usage
I am using this Server for development and some testing purpose, but it can also handle a fully functioning website with 20000+ users a day as it have 1 GB of RAM and 328 MB of SWAP so you can use it for hosting website.


Reliability
I never faced any downtime issue yet but recently i got amazingly slow speed connection but now its get fixed but it still not get the previous speed like in speedtest image..
My rating for reliability is 8.5/10
[/align]


Suggestions
I would like to suggest them to use layer 7 protection on all Servers and also the amount of SWAP and RAM however the RAM is pretty good but the SWAP is too low it would be at least 512 MB or 1 GB.


Final Ratings
Its a good VPS for newbies and small developers also its a good choice if you are planning to go with a VPS for your website instead of Shared Hosting and your site is not too large its perfect for a wordpress blog with a MyBB/PhpBB Forum(cause vBulletin/IPB/Xenforo is costly).

Final Rating 8/10
