LunaNode VPS impressions and benchmark

JDMcPeaJDMcPea Member

I was lucky enough to get some free credit for up to one year VPS that was offered to active LET members. Have been using LunaNode cloud VPS for about two months now.

Really like their Dashboard interface which makes setup easy. Haven't used Cloud type service before so it's probably similar to other Cloud providers but basically you deposit credit then choose the services you want and there are a lot of options. Create a VPS, delete it, change the specs, change the location, create another, purchase extra storage space, etc. I am using the "Memory Optimized m.1s" virtual machine which is $3.50 a month (if you keep it online 24/7) or $0.00486 per hour- includes 1 GB RAM, 1 core, 15 GB storage, and 1 TB bandwidth. If you take your machine offline you only pay $1 a month for the IPV4 address and I think a small amount for storage space used. Lots of intuitive options that are "self serve" like RDNS, floating IPs, EMail, DNS, etc. etc.

You can create your VPS in Toronto or Montreal Canada, or Roubaix France. I choose Toronto. Installed Ubuntu 18 from template, then Webmin/Virtualmin, then restored a Wordpress website from a backup. Everything installed smooth and fast. Website loads fast, Virtualmin works fine, no issues.

These guys seem like professionals, the service so far is excellent, can't comment on support as have had no need to contact them. If I didn't have my ultra cheap VirMach Black Friday machine I'd definitely consider moving my websites here.
