Terrahost are a Norway based webhost, who have been around since 2006. They offer VPS and dedicated servers, as well as colocation. In this review, I will write about their 1 GB LXC based Virtual Private Server (VPS) offered for US $ 13 a year.
ReadyDedis posted an offer on Low End Spirit and Low End Talk about their new Mumbai location. I was intrigued. Good, reasonably priced VPS (Virtual Private Server) plans in India are few, and for a while I have been looking at an option of a VPS in Mumbai. I do not have any servers in India, because the price to specifications ratio does not work well typically. In recent months, this has changed – two other offers for a VPS in Mumbai were posted by Cloudjiffy and Nexaracks recently. (read my benchmarks of Nexaracks VPS ) This offer added a third option.
Update December 2020: During Black Friday sale, ReadyDedis offerd a great deal for a Mumbai location. I will publish a separate review on that shortly.
In this post, you will find results from the benchmarks on a KVM VPS in Australia by FlowVPS, located in Melbourne. I had signed up for this service as a part of 2019 Black Friday offer. You my also find more tests and discussion in this thread on Low End Talk.
Update December 2020: Nearly One year after I published this post, I have mixed feelings about this VPS. Around October, there was a disk failure in the node and the server was down for days. The disks had to be replaced and there was a total data loss. (Thank goodness for Backups!) . Though that is hardly a reason for letting go of this server. I have simply been unable to put it to use. The price makes it an attractive proposition to hold on to on the other hand!
4 vCPU 4GB RAM 15GB NVMe - Primary 100GB SSD - Secondary (Not bootable) 1.5TB Data 1 IPv4 At 15 Australian Dollars/Quarter about $ 10 US Dollars), this is one sweet deal!
