UptimeVPS.com Experience and Review

edited September 2011 in Reviews

I would not call this a review but more a short experience report because I had this VPS only for a few days.

UptimeVPS had some problems in the start (http://www.lowendbox.com/blog/uptimevps-e1-50-128mb-xen-vps-in-france) and I was not very sure about getting a vps from them but I wanted a french vps and they were cheap enough to risk. and after a few days I can only say that I am absolutely satisfied.

I got a package with 384MB/768MB, 30GB storage and 300GB transfer for $12,7 ( EUR 9) from the link above which is the best value for the money I saw in the last few months, specially for france.

payment was done with credit card over paypal which is only payment method.
VPS (Debian 6) was setup almost before the welcome emails arrived.

not as fast as BuyVM but fast enough for me.

similar here. not as fast as BuyVM (BuyVM 128MB package is the fastest VPS I have) but more than enough for my needs.

I submitted a ticket asking for tun device and I got it a ten minutes later. openvpn is up and running.

There was no down time in these few days.

    Pfff, I am sorry, but, again, another comparison with BuyVM...

    Your VPS is fast, your VPS is good, nuff said, no need to say anything else.

  • I know it is fast but it is the fastest one I have. but you are still right that there are maybe too many comparasions with xxxx.

  • @komo: It's not everything about I/O speed. I found BuyVM's 256's to be slow comparing to other providers. I'm canceling my four 256's this month.

  • Thanks for the positive review. We shall keep up the good work. :)

  • another comparison with BuyVM

    Maybe folks consider buyVM to be a baseline for comparison. We have to have one somewhere.

    @ikocka - if you're having any weird performance issues you're welcome to ticket us :)

    I know we've had some minecrafts blasting away at some of the boxes so we're designating a node just for them sometime this week, just finalizing the hardware.
