My 3 month review of Hostodo

t0ny0t0ny0 Member

Hello boys and girls.

So I have been using Hostodo for over 3 months now, and figured - let me post a review about it on LET, since I have been pretty satisfied with it, hopefully others will enjoy them as well. Plus I keep seeing people posting reviews, which usually help me out a lot in picking a good provider, so wanted to give back to the community.

Also, I am in no way, shape or form associated with them, just a happy customer.

I got me a KVM VPS in Las Vegas.

Here are the specs.

Specs

NVM-LVKVM-1024

1024MB RAM
12GB NVMe Disk Space
4TB Bandwidth
1 CPU Core
KVM Virtualization
Las Vegas, NV
$2.99/month

And for the ones interested in getting it (my advice - GET IT! lol), here is a (non-affiliated) link to this specific plan:

Now, the first thing that you all would ask for is a nice little bench.

As you can see - not bad at all, with network speeds peaking pretty well.

I am usually fairly interested in the network, so here is an iperf3 that I ran.

iperf3

IPv6:

iperf3 -6 -c iperf.he.net -P 8

[SUM]   0.00-10.00  sec  1.10 GBytes   946 Mbits/sec  3808             sender
[SUM]   0.00-10.00  sec  1.08 GBytes   927 Mbits/sec                  receiver

IPv4:

iperf3 -4 -c iperf.he.net -P 8

[SUM]   0.00-10.00  sec  1.11 GBytes   954 Mbits/sec  7633             sender
[SUM]   0.00-10.00  sec  1.09 GBytes   936 Mbits/sec                  receiver

Almost a full sustained gbps. Very neat.

Support
I did have a question for support, and they were super quick to reply. And not just that, but @Hassan was a very nice guy to talk to, knows his shit (pardon my french), and is quick to answer any questions that I had.

Bottom Line
I love it, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable VPS in the US. Plus - the price is great too :P Looking forward to using it for many more years.

Thats my review of Hostodo. Definitely a 5 star service.

Since I have a service with almost all providers here - I will try to produce one review each week. Very happy that Hostodo is my first review here.
Be safe!
