Experience Alexhost ?

Hello all,
Is there ANY experience with the provider Alexhost ? They have a VPS with 1.5GB Ram and 100 Mbit connection for 12 euros.

Can anyone report how stable the VPS servers are as the network connection is? Is 100 Mbit unlimited means it 100Mbit down + 100 Mbit up or a total of 100 Mbit.

Background of the question when I make a VPN it must be 100mbit in both directions because otherwise I would have only 50 Mbit.

What is the general experience with them? What about Moldova as a server location, is P2P allowed in Moldova?

How's it looking with the anonymity at Alexhost. you have to give half his life at registration and then the provider advertises with anonymity.

  • Hi, I used their vps until spring 2021. The actual speed is about 80 Mbps, at the beginning of the year they were often subjected to ddos attacks, which caused problems with the network, but then everything got better. Most likely, they justify their price.
    Often subnets are blacklisted due to unscrupulous owners who send spam, so if you use a vps for mail, you need to check the issued ip.

  • Hi, I've been their user since yesterday.

    I've checked the IPv4 address at www.anti-abuse.org, it is BLOCKED by Barracuda Central.

  • If you are located outside of Europe, Jitter will have a higher value.

  • It's good for the price. Had mine for a few months now and uptime has been 100%. Speed is nothing crazy.

    I've recently got access to one of those €12/yr VPS and benchmarked it. Here are the results, based on a bit over 50 runs:

    While that doesn't look like a reasonably fast NVMe but more like a so so SSD those results are actually not bad at all for such a dirt-cheap VPS.

    First, No, connectivity is not 100 Mb/s (as advertised) but rather ca. 75 Mb/s - but within that frame connectivity actually isn't poor. With about 70 Mb/s (+-5) within Europe one can get quite far with small to medium sites and projects.

    TL;DR By no means a great VPS - but actually not bad at all for the super low price. If I were to give one advice it would be to get somewhat faster processors and memory and/or putting fewer VM on the nodes. IF AlexHost had VPS with say a decent 26xx v2 and decent memory they could offer quite attractive yet still cheap products.

    Plus I'd like to suggest putting out clearer info on their DDOS protection. Their site mentions "up to 1 Tb/s" but that's probably a theoretical value for the whole DC. If they clearly put out something like "100 Gb/s DDOS protection for your VPS" they would play their cards more smartly and quite likely attract more customers.

    Info about their protection was not hard to find:

    Anti-DDos
    Anti-DDos attacks up to 1 TeraBits per second security measures:
    Protection provided by Voxility. Direct optical channel to Romania to Voxility data-center is provided by our partners.

    I did find that but it seems unclear to me what you get with a VPS. I've seen other providers mentioning big number but actually only providing 1 - 10 Gb/s protection with their VPS.

    Alexhost is run by Alex. That's all I know.

    Not Alexa? :(

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    If it was run by Alexa, it would have been Alexahost, wouldn't it?

  • That is correct

    At least we know the owner's first name.
    I am also looking at getting a VPS from them for a small seedbox. The speed is an issue for me with them, but for the price I guess you can't expect more.

    Wrong. There are providers offering more performance in that price range.

    I have similarly cheap or even cheaper and better (more performance) VPS from Virmach, HostSailor, diverse russian providers (see my russian providers thread) and some others. Also RackNerd seems to have some very cheap VPS. From the top of my head.
    If that isn't enough and nobody else chimes in with hints, let me know and I'll go through my full list for you ;)

    1 Russian laws are much stricter than the DMCA.
    2 Not a single Russian provider in your review does not accept crypto payments.

    What is the use of Crypto if you log in to the web interface of the server with your DSL connection or with the server.

    They have your real IP address and will find you no matter if you pay with Crypto.

    You only have to log in once without VPN on the vps and that's it with anonymity. The provider has your real IP and will find you if you do illegal stuff.

    This is just food for thought. You cannot compare providers in terms of price / performance (as @jsg does) without considering such subtleties.

    And yes, I have servers, for example, buyvm, but buyvm does not have my IP. This does not mean that I am doing something illegal, it just is not your business.

    I would bet that at some point you didn't pay attention for just 1 second and your IP ended up with them. Be it ssh access or vps panel access

    That may indeed be so but still, why should russian authorities care about alien laws?

    Me not care about crypto payments, but feel free to research that point with every provider I review and add your finding as a comment that may be helpful for some users.

    That's obviously not correct. I actually do it. But I get your point and know that there are also quite a few other "subtleties".
    But (a) my interest - and that of very many - is mainly some technical aspects, and (b) keep in mind that I'm not getting paid; I do for free what I do and in fact often I even pay for a VPS in order to test it.
    But again, feel free to research and post any subtleties you find interesting and/or important. I'm absolutely not opposed to others adding useful information.

    And yes, I have servers, for example, buyvm, but buyvm does not have my IP. This does not mean that I am doing something illegal, it just is not your business.

    Me not care, in fact I almost never use false data and in the few cases I do (e.g. Contabo) it's virtually always mutually agreed upon.

    You see, while anonymity and privacy concerns are in fact even part of my profession, I also see the other side, the providers side. And I do not think that it's wrong for a provider wanting true basic data. After all not only do I need to trust them but they also need to trust their customers in order to allow them to use their hardware and their network.
