Community News: New DDoS Protected VPS Service by RackNerd

Interesting Web Hosting and VPS Hosting Community News

As part of LowEndBox’s new “interesting news” series we will be publishing, we recently received a submission from Dustin at RackNerd. RackNerd has been featured here many times. RackNerd is a resident host on LowEndBox with positive reviews from the community regarding its services and support and they routinely rank among the most popular offer threads on LowEndBox, including most recently in the month of April

Here is the announcement piece we received from them:

“RackNerd has soft-launched its 60Gbps DDoS Protected KVM VPS plans in Los Angeles and seeing that LEB is interested in sharing interesting news we figured we’d reach out and share some interesting yet exciting news! RackNerd is leveraging Sharktechs network in Los Angeles and is naming this Los Angeles DC-05 which happens to be a solid, especially for the Chinese community. Speaking of which, the Chinese community enjoys diversity, options and various networks to choose from. This is because the network fluctuates in that region and certain customers prefer a specific blend over the other based on their local ISP. Not only that, these VPS are also very solid for the American market, as Los Angeles also serves as a dominant West Coast location. For those interested in the carriers within Sharktechs network now RackNerd’s newest location, here are some to name a few: NTT, Comcast, GTT, China Unicom, China Telecom and China Mobile.”

For those interested here is the facility information provided by RackNerd: 

Location: Los Angeles, CA (RackNerd LA-DC05) – Sharktech Datacenter
