    My own experience is that their platforms are more oversold than virmach (who I also have machines with).

      Can’t say I’ve experienced the same. Performance on my HostBRZ KVM VPS is on average at least 1.5x faster than my Virmach server consistently.

      Could be that I’m on a bad Virmach server, but I suppose that with LEB hosts anyways, and a plan so affordable, YMMV.

        I tried to post my nench results – but it appears that creates a comment that gets banned as spam, in any case its the CPUs and disk bandwidth/write speed where it kills me.

    I can also vouch for these guys. I have been using them for a good 4 months now and easily one of my best performing and favorite providers.

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.
