    For the $14/yr which comes out to about a shy more than a buck per month I decided to give the 1.5GB SSD package a try. Instant signup and the box seems to function an perform well.

    Thinking of signing up for OpenVZ but would need FUSE module loaded for sshfs .. is this available?

    • That’s definitely understandable. SparkVPS provides a 48 hour money back guarantee window – this should be ample time to trial our services risk free =)

    Bought 1.5GB SSD package today (my first VPS experience). Installed Nginx and started hosting a medium traffic website.
    I have to say I am impressed, everything is good, a great alternative to my previous shared hosting provider who couldn’t handle the traffic anymore.
    I hope that everything will be good in the future so I will buy even more packages from you :)
    Thanks!

    Hey, good offers! Couple of questions:

    1) Can I use it for torrent download (not tracker/seeding) from public torrent sites?

    2) The $14/yr is an excellent plan, but I’d like to know if you can customize a little bit the package: I’d need a >200GB SDD, only 1GB RAM (maybe less), and 2TB traffic.

    Thanks

      Bought the 6GB SSD on September 26th, 2018. Since then server is unavailable or offline almost every day. Network problems or abuse users was the excuse. I have asked for service termination and full refund at Saturday, October 13th, 2018. Still waiting!!!

    Are masternodes ok on your VPS? They sometimes have high cpu usage for about 20 mins a day but the rest of the time CPU usage is nominal at most. Typically about 45 mins of CPU time a day total. This is not the same as crypto mining. It is just to hold a wallet.

    Could you please provide any benchmark results in the 6GB RAM variant?

    September 30, 2018 @ 3:01 pm | Reply
  25. Just bought the 6 GB variant, checking out RAM and CPU speeds. Everything is good, it was instantly setup.

    But the thing which really bothers me was, the RAM and processor speed.

    Below is the test I ran using sysbench

    root@mail:~# sysbench –test=memory –memory-total-size=1G run
    sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

    Running the test with following options:
    Number of threads: 1

    Doing memory operations speed test
    Memory block size: 1K

    Memory transfer size: 1024M

    Memory operations type: write
    Memory scope type: global
    Threads started!
    Done.

    Operations performed: 1048576 (982971.31 ops/sec)

    1024.00 MB transferred (959.93 MB/sec)

    Test execution summary:
    total time: 1.0667s
    total number of events: 1048576
    total time taken by event execution: 0.8714
    per-request statistics:
    min: 0.00ms
    avg: 0.00ms
    max: 8.03ms
    approx. 95 percentile: 0.00ms

    Threads fairness:
    events (avg/stddev): 1048576.0000/0.00
    execution time (avg/stddev): 0.8714/0.00

    RAM speed is highly disappointing.

    Even though it states 4 cores CPU is provided, the sysbench outputs are really not so good considering the same test being executed in a single core i7 VPS.

    root@mail:~# sysbench –test=cpu –num-threads=4 run
    sysbench 0.4.12: multi-threaded system evaluation benchmark

    Running the test with following options:
    Number of threads: 4

    Doing CPU performance benchmark

    Threads started!
    Done.

    Maximum prime number checked in CPU test: 10000

    Test execution summary:
    total time: 5.9114s
    total number of events: 10000
    total time taken by event execution: 23.5898
    per-request statistics:
    min: 0.91ms
    avg: 2.36ms
    max: 31.33ms
    approx. 95 percentile: 6.27ms

    Threads fairness:
    events (avg/stddev): 2500.0000/983.32
    execution time (avg/stddev): 5.8975/0.01

    As this was all the benchmark tests, it might differ in real life situations.

    I’ll be updating soon, after a full test for a day or two.

    Btw, bang for the buck offer tho! Hopefully everything would go smooth in the long run.

  26. UPDATE 1

    Recently, the server has been lagging like hell. Now, just minutes ago my VPS went down. GG. It’s not even more than a day, now it’s down, already submitted a support ticket but none answered.

    P.s – I never had any of my VPS gone down with other providers. This is the first time am facing this issue.

      It’s up again. They told me that it was some kinda network issue.

      I have the same.
      My VPS is down like 4-5 times a week.
      They said that I use to much CPU, average load of 0.3 with the 4CPU VPS.

      October 17, 2018 @ 5:30 am | Reply
      • The same is happening to me,

        I bought the 6GB package and it worked fine for a few days I host a website using centminmod, but suddenly it started to have issues, since tuesday, it started going down every few hours for minutes as shown in the next picture. I tried to ssh to the VPS but it was really slow, I could execute commands

        http://f.cgm.rs/2018-10-18_11-46-57.png

        I thought, hopefully its just a network issue and I sent a ticket to them, 2 minutes later my VPS got suspended without notice. I sent them a ticket, their only response was that I was using too much CPU, which I am sure its not right, considering that just before I checked htop and it was really low, they told me to change to a KVM package.

        I asked them after that, what about the files, they just told me they would elevate the ticket to a superior. I asked them what about all the downtime I will have until I get answered and there was no more response.

        And that is my nightmare, hopefully I will be able to fix the issue or at least recover the files I got there. I always backup, but I was not able to backup that VPS.

        I will keep you updated with what happened at the end

          Same here. It looked good at first, but issues started the same time as you said, maybe a day later.
          They suspended the service, saying the VPS was using too much CPU.

          I am not pleased that they like to suspend the service due to CPU usage. I thought I rented that CPU usage, so that should be my problem and not a reason for suspension.

          It looks like they oversold the server and when things got rough they started suspending.

    Do you support OpenVZ 7? So that we can upgrade to newer version of Ubuntu without braking libc6.

Some notes on commenting on LowEndBox:

  • Do not use LowEndBox for support issues. Go to your hosting provider and issue a ticket there. Coming here saying "my VPS is down, what do I do?!" will only have your comments removed.
  • Akismet is used for spam detection. Quoting webhostingtalk.com URL seems to get binned consistently here, but I do peek into the spam box frequently to publish those comments.
  • Use <pre>...</pre> to quote the output from your terminal/console, or consider using a pastebin service.
