Review: BuyVM

edited April 2013 in Reviews

Summary:

------------ Host buyvm.net is good out of the box

Speed and good balanced load

Key Points of Host:

  • Fast
  • Low ping time
  • Good balance

My expectations:

  • Better than average load balancing

  • Easy access to control panel (and / or SSH)

  • Quick and friendly customer service
  • Customer service which will resolve issues (or at least make a valid attempt & not brush me off with a "script" response)
  • An agreeable Terms of Service for possible mild adult content (limited, not porn)
  • An acceptable budget

My current resources:

  • 5 Database (MySQL)
  • Space currently using: -- 5 GB
  • Current monthly bandwidth: -- 32 GB

Full Commentary Review:

Originally I sought to use BuyVM for only backups. They advertise themselves for storage and the idea was to use them for that. But I did some "snooping" around and noticed they didn't have a bad i/o read and so I also ordered one of their smaller plans for a few Word Press blogs. Once I was happy with that I slapped vBulletin (v3) and also a copy of phpBB. Both of them smaller sites in members, but generally active.

The load balance is what has impressed me. I've got 2 forums and 3 blogs, all generally active and you would think each one had their own box.

Support was helpful in migrating from one host to another. I didn't ask them to do it, only told them what I was planning on doing with the other VPS and they offered. Which isn't something most VPS providers do. So I found that to be an extra plus.

I think my summary about covers most of everything, but I'll be willing to answer questions upon request

  • What load balancing?

    Without getting hung on the terminology....

    There is no noticeable lag or bottleneck in all those sites reading and writing at the same time. Neither does there seem to be a bandwidth bottleneck either.

    Which is my way of saying.... It's just fast.

    @Socially_Uncensored
    Will this trend continue? Sudden mass planting individual threads abour every host you and all the rest of us here know and use? Or you're doing this after fail with your first review in attempt to get (with opposite - positive reviews) back some credibility? Please stop wasting this space and our time with something what was said at those pages thousands times before without need to open individual threads.

    Yes, I actually have 3 more to do. If you don't like, you can ignore it. If not, not my problem.

    People always hate a good thing. Ironic, eh?

    Keep up the good job though, BuyVM

    Naah, not true! My experience with you was quite positive just host you worked for sucked :-) You were always polite as much tickets I opened and I opened them A LOT. With this damn host... Are they still in business? :)

    @Socially_Uncensored please take some time, observe this community to see what's about. And them maybe open some thread when it will be appropriate...

    It wasn't much good there. Just one experience (non BuyVM related) for me and Francisco (more for him, I believe) in life more. But what would you know...
    Anyway, I just wanted to ask you to stop mass planting threads about same hosts we talk on daily basis here without need to open new and new threads. Tell us something special. Introduce us some interesting budget vps host we don't know much or something.
