HostingInside have previously been featured a handful of times. Their last three offers have been the same, so it’s refreshing to see a new offer! HostingInside are located in Taiwan and have been around for about 8 years, but Joni tells us that they’re still not registered as a company. I found a benchmark of this plan from last year. You can view their server status / node specifications on this page. Unfortunately on their last offer, no reviews were left. If you’re a customer, or become one, do share your experience with us!

HostingInside accept payment via Paypal. As for refund, Joni tells us that “Pro-rated credits are issued for unused services when customer retains any active service. Pro-rated refunds are issued if customer does not retain any active service and they are specifically requested via the cancellation form. All refunds are subject to a 10% of total refund amount for service charge.” Servers are connected to a 100Mbps port. HostingInside do not allow Tor or Adult. They do however allow IRC, VPN, Proxies, Game Server & Radio. For more information, you can view their Terms and Conditions.

      As a person who also use Chinese characters as you, I fell so ashamed. Please don’t speak any rude, disrespectful words! Your comment is meaningless and can’t help others.
      LEB is an english based community, there are people form all over the world speaking various native languages. However they always try their best to post comments in English.
      As the saying goes, “Do in Rome as the Romans do”.
      作为一名和你一样使用汉字的人,我为你在公共场合爆粗口感到羞愧。你的评论对其他人没有任何帮助。
      另外,在LEB有使用各种各样母语的人,但是大家都使用英语交流(尽管时常有语法/拼写错误)。请入乡随俗。

    • 1. We already notice customer before the maintenance and even when something gone wrong we’ve keep notice you. You demand a fast resolution but the datacenter staff done something wrong and in the end you threaten us after all of your vps expire you do not want to renew and will post it on WHT.
      2. About the compensation, it has been described on our term and conditions. I am afraid you did not read it when you order with us.

  4. I have been with them for ~6 months give or take, I use the VPS mainly for IRC and other small stuff. The service has been consistent maxing out on 100 days uptime, then outage due to some node work and data center related stuff. Both IPv4 and IPv6 work great and in my opinion everything is wonderful. Below is a script I use to test servers and stuff

  5. Have been their customer since 2 months ago, and i think i will keep it for a long time. Only have one downtime on UK nodes due to ddos attack.
    Good performance and fair-to-good customer service experiences.
