    Good news but hardly a great offer.

    Nowadays you can buy a 521MB RAM 2Mbit unmetered KVM VPS located in Hong Kong for just US$5 (36cloud,com) and GigsGigsCloud.com is launching cheap OpenVZ (starting US$6) and XEN (starting US$ 10 w/coupon) with a *lot* more bandwidth.

      Correction: GigsGigsCloud.com uses KVM, not XEN.

      I have been using 36cloud’s VPS for a while and so far a good experience. They have good connectivity to mainland China and not that good to elsewhere.

      Regarding GigsGigsCloud, it is a subsidiary of gigsgigs, a reputable and well-known company. I didn’t tried their service yet because I’m waiting IPv6.

    Is the bandwidth speed limitation due to company’s network?…. or is it because of limited bandwidth purchased from x company and then wanting to list it as ‘unlimited bandwidth’ so it looks better? 3Mbps is some bit low, ~307KB/s?…. but realistically more like 250-275…

    I’d rather have a one month limitation of 200-300GB and 100Mbps, dunno if that’s possible

      Asian bandwidth is different. They do “domestic” and “international” rates of bandwidth with international being the lowest

      • Bleat:

        Obviously you couldn’t have everyone running 1gbit speeds, but my understanding has always been that this is usually more limited by the quantity ordered (or supplied) by the whomever the bandwidth is being acquired from, rather than the speed?

          Whoops. Rephrased: In general, isn’t the quantity the limiting factor, rather than the speed?

            Bandwidth is capacity. Speed is fix: in fiber, “bits” travels ~65% velocity of light. The provider buys capacity from the carriers’ packet networks. More capacity (bitrate) more packets (usually up to 1500 octets each) can be transmitted per time unit. Higher bitrates look fast because transports more data per time unit not because the payload travels faster. If a provider sets your maximum bitrate it limits the amount of the data you can transmit per time unit. When the provider limits the quantity (e.g. monthly data transfer allowance) the throughput depends on the overall usage of the installed capacity (and many other things). If the provider has lots of spare capacity to support the aggregated load during peak times you have the sensation of great speed because you are using the maximum bitrate. But in places where the capacity is expensive, small providers must control the effective bitrate — doesn’t matter if you have a 10Mbit or 10Gbit network port. It is “up to” that capacity.

    Why is hosting in HK so expensive?

      I thought about the same. China (ie. Shenzen) and especially Hong Kong are kings of technology, low price of electricity, low price of computers. Maybe the network isn’t advanced, don’t know.

        Power is not cheap at all in HK. Shenzhen is not HK and you can’t host there.

        I remember HK hass the second-fast network average speed in the world.
        P.S Hongkonger.
        P.S2 Please don’t mix up Shenzhen with us.

    Hello administrator,

    First of all, thanks for your great service.
    I am going to ask some questions before I purchase your service.

    At first let me know following points:
    1. I need to get HongKong with HongKong IP address
    2. I am going to host my web site
    3. I need to install VPN service on that (ex: PPTP), so PPP should be enabled.
    4. Latest CentOS 7 installed
    5. root access to my server and need to access via ssh client like putty.
    6. Let me test net speed with trial version.
    7. In the case I have some technical issues, need to get supports from your tech guys.
    8. Paypal will work for the payment method?
    9. Let me know the address of your company.
    10. If I purchase annually, could I get any discount?

    Best regards,
    Jin
