Delimiter VPS - Dedicated server two days review
I've recently purchased a Delimiter VPS Dedicated server.
Here is the benchmark,
CPU model : Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5420 @ 2.50GHz Number of cores : 8 CPU frequency : 2500.130 MHz Total amount of ram : 7868 MB Total amount of swap : 7999 MB System uptime : 14:35, Download speed from CacheFly: 64.6MB/s Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 48.7MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 74.7MB/s Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 12.7MB/s Download speed from i3d.net, Rotterdam, NL: 1.89MB/s Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 95.3MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 30.02MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 19.01MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 20.00MB/s Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 17.23MB/s I/O speed : 52.8 MB/s
For a cheap box. These specs are above average. Also their support is really good. Only thing to worry is it takes bit time (3-5 days) to provision your server. It's nothing compared to other providers.
This box only costs me $20/mo. For that money, I'm highly satisfied with what I got.
[Thank you @markturner for introducing me for them]
@sdglhm - Thanks for the review. But a little early to review the service properly, give it a couple of months and re-visit this posting with your findings at that point.
Yes. That is what I've mentioned it as two days review. But I know this wouldn't let me down.
Usually 2 days reviews make company looks worse
It sure does. It can't even be qualified as a review since you can't have much of an experience with support or you can't witness how good the support is at problem solving when one occurs.
Maybe "A random speedtest within a 2 days timezone" would be a more fitting title for such.
With the urge of people to share something, open a topic I'm afraid soon we'll start having "30 Second" reviews.
I don't like their support, they're simply ignoring my email/ticket. Still did not get a refund while it was PROMISED to be refunded within 7 days.
Edit: Seems like they've woken up, got my refund.
Just wanted to share this benchmark as a reply for my own post. Don't take it too seriously. I only review a service after six months usually. But due to my previous post, I thought some folks been pushed into dark by my self.
Now they're even darker
I don't think so. Can you explain why?
Happy to hear that Joodle
I ordered 2 of these boxes today to use for backups. Will definitely post back when they get provisioned. My info is all properly filled out, so they should get set up pretty quick.
@MarkTurner My server provisioning took about a day. I just wish their IPs were less expensive. They want $8 for 5 IPs. Other vendors offer them for less. My renewal is coming soon, so I'm considering others in LA area.
Not at all. They sell Ips $1 per IP. but a /29 is 8 IPs 3 used by gateway etc.
@hdpixel - $1/IP is reasonable. We're not in the business of selling large numbers of IPs for such small systems. IPs will only start ramping in cost more heavily as the shortage starts biting.
I think $1/IP is not an unreasonable request to ask for, even before the shortage.
$1 / IP is fine. but for a /29 it costs you $2.
$8 for /29 = 5 usable IPs (4 more than the /32 you had), so $8 / 4 IPs, therefore $2 / IP
/24 is better value
5 USEABLE IPs
8 actual IPs
