  • in general no... but considering I used the exact same method (serverbear) on each... In that closed group you can compare against one another

    Maaaybe, but when in an shared environment; "benchmarking" results are especially invalid.

    Let alone that "benchmarks" are never actually a stick towards the actual service performance.

    What matters most is "Does this server run the program I need it to, as fast as I need it to?"

    @GoodHosting - You are so right with

    What matters most is "Does this server run the program I need it to, as fast as I need it to?"

    I think this is what the OP is trying to find out.. please tell us the best way to know?

  • Get the one with the highest results in dd test, all other benchmarks are useless anyway!

    Thanked by 1sc754

    Remember DD test results should be 10 GB/s atleast otherwise the VPS is useless & will carry out the tasks slower than .....

  • as @GoodHosting rightly said you can't use pure numbers for the tests... so im just comparing those with each other... if you had to choose one of those for a server getting < 5000 hits a day.. which would be your choice (performance + price wise)

    All of the servers that you mentioned would serve your purpose but just to feel more secure you may go with RamNode who have been consistently ranked # 1 in last 3 quarterly top provider polls here on LET.

    Vultr 2GB gives you 4GB RAM? Also Vultr's 1GB plan is $7

    But then I would still go for either the 1GB Vultr or Ramnode, and if you're willing to pay a little extra, then Ramnode gives you more everything than Vultr 1GB

    Favourite host in general: Ramnode (affiliate link)
    Favourite host for hourly billing/custom ISOs: Vultr ($50 free credit for new accounts, affiliate link)

    If it's a heavy database website, go for the high I/O. If it's a gallery website, bandwidth and/or network speed and/or disk space is important. If it's gonna need more CPU power, go with the provider who is more tolerant to high server load. And other ifs...

    I'm here to collect your heart

    forgot to mention.. for vultr both have the double ram promo...
    Rootnerds has that previous promo they did on lowendtalk
    and Ramnode... well.. thats just their standard pricing
