Review for VPSNodeBox

Following the offer here from VPSNodeBox, I bought a Xen VPS (1536MB RAM) from them and I felt that the server was really good for the price! The VPS provides a whooping 4 Core Xen, with Hyper-threading enabled, for a total of 8 THREADS!

Resources : CPU: 4 x Intel Xeon E31230 @ 3.20GHz + Hyper-threading = 8 Logical Cores @ 3.20GHz! Memory: 1536 MB Guaranteed Swap: ENABLED Disk Space: 50 GB Bandwidth: 960GB Premium Bandwidth Network: 75Mbit Virtualization: Xen IP Addresses: 1xIPv4, contact support for IPv6 - Enterprise Level Managed DNS Service

Their support team is also really helpful, and tickets were resolved in less than 6 hours! For their price (starting at 9.95USD a month for 512MB RAM Xen VPS), I would say that this VPS provider is really awesome! In the first place, you hardly get such a price for a Xen! (Considering that you get 4 Core/8 Threads all dedicated!)

    Were you told by anyone to post the review? It's just a little fishy that this is your only post.

    Edit: @Randy beat me. :(

    Sounds a touch like marketing speak?

    And it's not even LEB price. Also, "4 Core/8 Threads all dedicated!" How many cores are there on the node if they can give you 4 dedicated cores for <$10 per month?

    I see 7 !'s in the post. Welcome to LET!

  • It's nice to see that you are happy with vpsnodebox, but I think you should provide us or at least a moderator of a site or ip for confirmation! I am happy you are pleased though, looking forward for more good reviews.

    Dedicated CPU?!

  • I'm sorry for causing anyone to be mistaken, but I did this out of my own goodwill as I have been really satisfied with their service. (especially Marc, the support dude whom I was talking to) For those who are wondering if I am part of their team or anything, you can find my post before I ordered over at the comments section in lowendbox. Vps IP : 108.170.55.17, computer ip is dymanic (currently 59.189.237.227). I'm from Singapore, and my isp is starhub.

    @vedran, apparently yes. All plans get the same 4 core 8 thread regardless of cpu. I ordered an upgraded plan due to my needs in video conversion.

    Finally, @ajit, while I don't know if it is a dedicated CPU, what I am sure is that the cpu resources are dedicated to me. I.e. I get 8 threads no matter how busy the server is.

  • BTW nice website and i dont see preview pdf from dropbox host pdf on your server

  • A question that may be asked - how many sockets on the motherboard?

  • RandyRandy Disabled

    i apologize for that... thank you for posting the details 3am here.. go bed @OP;-)

  • I think Marc has quit LET (from my communications from him) so might not see this ......

  • @Randy Do you think everyone lives in your timezone? Need another smiley face with that comment?

    When you find that perfect VPS, KEEP IT.

  • Well it so happened that I do... I live in a similar/same timezone as @Randy
