Hi all,

HiFormance have some really good offers. How is the service from this provider and is there a difference between their KVM and OpenVZ VPS performance?

    it's no doubt that they'r overselling. but that's not the problem. it depends on their management.

    I bought one 4 GB RAM, 2 vCPU for 12 usd per year to test it, considering cost, it may be openvz. It is very slooooow, starting from SSL, just running simple Node.js that serve 100 json records from json file, very sloow. I have one 256 MB VPS with virmach, it was way faster, felt 20 times faster in everything.

    I still use Hiformance 4 GB RAM VPS, I use it for Java, Simulate network traffic for my master thesis, so I need high RAM, decent CPU to run Java, Kafka, I found it is useful. Means, I don't expect very good performance from HiFormance, I want a large sized program to run, keep it running, even it is slow.

    Link to the 4 GB RAM, 2 vCPU for 12 usd per year deal?

  • I have a small WordPress site running on their $7 a year deal. I have uptime robot monitoring and so far it's been 100%. I think its 5gb SSD and 512mb memory. It's also running Syncthing and Duplicati to blast the backups off someplace trustworthy. So far no issues.

    Obviously, they are overselling, as long as management is on top of it and the company doesn't disappear (big damn if) I don't particularly care in this case as I know what I am getting myself into.

    of course, according to the rules:

  • My whole thing with using ultra-cheap providers for hosting websites has always been - are they going to stay in business? I can deal/config around the slower performance but the time to restore from backup to a new VPS is often non trivial. Stay in business, answer support tickets and the rest is fine with me...

    ok, I decided to change my mind. Hiformance's service is quite goooood, even their staff solved my low priority ticket in 5 minutes at midnight. Amazing!!! Thx to Matt.@hiformance

    Affiliate links means person has more incentive to have others sign up. Could that cause a conflict? Maybe.
