    Hi John,
    Do you have a test IP that is not one of the Quadranet mirrors?

    Thanks
    Harry

    • You should expect similar performance as we are using the same QuadraNet network.

      If you would like an alternate test IP, please feel free to contact us, we will provide one for you upon request.

    Just ordered the 6GB KVM with Windows in New York, and within 15 minutes, it was deployed and I could login. So far, it seems pretty good. (The only quirk was that the date and time was incorrect, and the date was set to sometime in 2015. This caused Web certificates to fail. Adjusting the date/time did the trick without issue.)

    I did a quick install of the DreamGrid version of OpenSim, the 3D Virtual environment found at https://OpenWorldz.com. I was able to connect remotely from home via the FireStorm client without issue. Performance is very good, and bandwidth usage is decent, though I will have to keep an eye on it should I decide to make my virtual world public.

    my interest is to have an always on PC where I can login from anywhere with all important softwares installed and ready to go.

    so when speaking of Windows OS, is it only Windows Server or can we also get Windows 10 installed?

    No issues here. It’s too bad we can’t pay to upgrade to a 1gbps port and my IP geolocates to Sweden, which is annoying, but i’s solid otherwise.

  15. Is there any provision on the KVM VPS for snapshot or backup capability?

  16. HSN:

    I ordered the 6GB KVM with Windows Server and all are good so far. Their customer service is not too fast but pretty acceptable considering the price you pay.

    One issue I had was that the disk space in differs from the Explorer. Following link has information on how to fix that:

    I’ve got a 1gb ram for $18/year and love it, but I wonder if the port is really 1gbps, rather than 100mbps advertised. I’m constantly getting speed tests of 81MB/s or 648Mbps.

    January 21, 2019 @ 10:39 pm | Reply
    • Jeffery:

      648Mbps is pretty good on a 1Gbps shared port. I don’t think there’s an issue there.
      That being said, I wouldn’t recommend this host as my personal experience with their server wasn’t that great.

    Totally unreliable vps. If you need stable vps without downtimes – find another provider.
    Tech support is like talking head – they answers fast, told you that they fixed all your issues but no – they don’t fixing anything. Two months of service with downtime around 70% – what the heck ?

  27. unsatisfied customer:

    They seem to have very serious issues with their network and routing. Definitely not recommend. More details:

    I ordered a VPS In New York, got an IP address within 144.57.73.0/24.

    Can’t ping or SSH into the VPS neither from my home nor from two other servers. (I can ping it from another VM located in Los Angeles, though, with a round trip time of some 2ms. So this server is located in Los Angeles, not in New York as advertised).

    This is no wonder, given that 144.57.73.0/24 is a prefix that is only partially visible in the global routing table (check https://stat.ripe.net/widget/routing-history#w.resource=144.57.73.0/24). For less tech-savvy users: This means that these IP addresses are only reachable form a subset of Internet hosts.

    However, there is a less-specific prefix 144.57.64.0/18 announced by a Swedish ISP (hence, my packets go to Sweden before they are dropped).

    Now it gets even better:

    whois 144.57.73.0

    % Information related to ‘144.57.73.0/24AS39052’

    route: 144.57.73.0/24
    descr: Skanska AB
    descr: Announced to AS2119 and AS12552
    descr: Hijacked Space

    source: RIPE

    it says “Hijacked Space” in the description, which as apparently put in by the swedish ISP that owns these IP addresses.

    Either there’s some very serious misconfiguration going on here, or TechVPS literally hijacks other ISP’s address space for their servers. Needless to say, this results in the worst imagineable performance. I require a full refund and/or a new VPS with a non-hijacked IP address located in New York.

    Ok, it looks good, 6GB vps for $79/year. I bought one. It worked fine for 1 week. Up/down speed was ok since I was only hosting a DB. It said Los Angeles but somehow everything was going through Sweden. Then suddenly Friday 2/15 I couldn’t rdc to it, but I was able to connect through VNC (from their panel). Opened a ticket, after a day they said they were working on it. Suddenly they said we fixed it. But unfortunately they fixed nothing. Again reopened ticket, and for 3 days it was in progress. I terminated my service and I moved on with another company. I know you get what you pay for, but still I bought cheaper services from other “providers” and it was waaaaaay better. Just don’t spend you $$$$ with techvps. Dead services, Slower than death support

    I can confirm that their IPv4 is serious screwed up. Traceroute to my VPS’s IP is going all the way to Sweden.

    I think they must have purchased some IP block from someone, gotten scammed on it, and now can’t come up with a new range of IP addresses to hand out.

    Can we at least get some IPv6 allocated on these meanwhile? So that the machines are at least reachable over IPv6?

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.
