Reviews and Benchmarks of Virtual Private Servers (VPS)

List of Virtual Private Servers Reviewed between Mid-2019 and End 2021

Since June 2019, I have reviewed over 50 Virtual Private servers. During these reviews, I run benchmarks on them, tinker around with settings, and sometimes break the systems (intentionally or otherwise). On this page, you will find the list of services I have tested, benchmarked or used. Think of this page as an index page, with a link to the respective benchmark. Typical benchmarks I run include Yet Another Benchmark Script or YABS and bench.monster. In the past I also used to run nench.sh or bench.sh. Starting 2021, primary tests are YABS and bench.monster, the latter I test for network speeds to India or Asia.

This page has been updated in March 2022.You may also check out the YABS list on LowEndSpirit Forums.

GreencloudVPS, Singapore

(November 2021-Present)

During Black Friday 2020 I signed up for multiple Storage Plans and decided to create a separate category for this index page.

Update February 2022
: During Black Friday 2021, I opted for long term plans ( 2 or 3 years) from Hosthatch and GreencloudVPS. You will find the results from those storage serves on this page as well. These services are active as on February 2022. By end of November 2022, only Hosthatch – Stockholm and Greencloud VPS- Singapore will remain active as storage servers. Nexusbytes Germany is a smaller storage, tied to a VPS Plan I have with them so that will remain active as long as I have service with Nexusbytes.

Would you like your VPS to be reviewed? If yes, then you can Contact Me. But please note that starting January 2021, I will limit to one VPS review per quarter due to time constraints. Thank you
