    No problems. If you need slightly lesser disk space, could work out something in the same price range as well :)

    Yep, can vouch for them. Been with them for a few years and have zero issues and hoping to continue that trend. I just bought another one today. Too good to resist. Bought from another company and after paying was put on pending. Just found out they refunded me without even an explanation. Maybe they mis-advertised their special and reneged. At least I got in on this deal! :)

  • Is traceroute blocked on that test ip? I've tried running a traceroute from LA and SEA, but both ends up non-responsive.

  • Can someone post a bench from The plan listed above? interested in disk and io. Thanks

    Hello,
    When paying for 6 months or more, you will receive a discount. Our basic rule is that you get 2 months free when paying annually. All plans their annual price are 10x monthly price.

    Perhaps SSH bruteforce connections to port 22 ? I'd recommend changing your SSH port to begin with.

    Apart from that, you always have other web crawlers attempting to contact your VPS on various common ports.
