Leaseweb Singapore VPS Review
A full review about Leaseweb’s Singapore Review. Recently, Leaseweb launched their Singapore location for their Virtual Servers. Let’s find out how it performs!
I had the VPS for more than a month before writing this review and got it during their Launch sale.
I will be reviewing their XL VPS which comes with the following specs:
SSD Storage: 160GB (SAN Storage) (They write SSD in their order page now)
Virtual RAM: 8GB
Virtual CPU : 8 Core
Customer Portal (Control Panel)
What I love most about Leaseweb is how feature-packed their panel is. It has all the standard feature you need to manage your VPS like Reinstall, Reverse DNS, Graphs, and most notably IP Null Feature.
On the order page, you have a choice of SLA, their default comes with free 24 hour SLA, and they have paid selection of better SLA but it is quite pricey in my opinion.
I have opened a ticket with them (not technical support though) and it was answered pretty quickly. I also have a dedicated server with them and they have always performed better than the purchased SLA.

This is based on a default cPanel Trial install, WordPress 4.3 install. Test is done from Singapore on a Fiber Broadband.
Average TTFB is 203ms, i’ve seen it go even lower to 160ms at times.
Verdict: Excellent real-world performance even though IO is average.

The result is really excellent, it performs even better than my Dedicated server with them (E3 1230 16GB RAM Raid10 HD).
Uptime is based on Port-Monitor on at least a 1 month timeline.
Uptime details from 01 Nov 00:00:00 to 18 Dec 23:59:59

Excellent uptime as you can see above.
Performance, network and uptime are all excellent. I will not hesitate to use this on a Production environment. The price is on the high side without the specials especially since now they have 6-month contract term :
However, for a production environment, for the price and quality, its quite worth it in my opinion. I definitely will use it to host my clients.
