Photonvps.com / Yardvps.com - anyone with recent experience?

hey,

Both sites seems to offer the same thing and belong to the same parent company - psychz.net.

I'm interested in their South African VPS (with 32000 GB Bandwidth)

all I could find are 0 good reviews, very old complaints and issues from 2010-2012 max, and complete silence ever since.

The BW for these prices sounds a bit too good to be truth - which usually is, so curious if anyone had any recent experience with any of them?

Thanks

    They're just... alright. The bandwidth pricing is correct as connectivity is just Hurricane Electric + Johannesburg IX.

    You're not kidding: I tested it from a handful of servers and the only time it didn't transit he.net was the server across town in Joburg.

    Still, hard to complain about the price.

    I had a VPS with them awhile back and the performance was great. The only issue I had with them was their support was pretty bad/outsourced. I remember one of the techs asking for my root password which I copied and pasted for him only for him to reply back that it didn't work. I thought maybe I accidentally gave him the wrong one so I double checked by copy/paste and physically typing it and it was definitely the right root password...eventually another tech took over and had no issue logging in lol.

    Regardless, I would still recommend them because I did enjoy the performance and network.

    We have NAP Africa in Johannesburg, for international traffic everything is routed through HE.net since that's the only provider there.
