ShardHost Review

Note: I'm reviewing a VPS I received for free (http://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/8512/offering-a-few-free-vps) from @ShardHost, however this should (at least) represent the quality of paid service.

I currently have the 512MB package. The server performs very well. I'm currently hosting a private VPN and developing websites on it, so I need great uptime and network connectivity, and this VPS has both of them. I've had no uptime issues so far, and support has been great. The only ticket I had was for PPP, which did not work from SolusVM right away. Staff responded to my ticket very quickly (~30 mins), considering that it was Sunday; they also admitted that they didn't enable the required kernel modules and fixed the issue right away.

  • I have a shardhost KVM VPS too, and it is nice. One of the better Dallas VPS IMO

  • Nice network

  • Thanks for the review. If you do plan to keep the VPS with us, please open a ticket so we can ensure you are on the right pricing!

    I also received a free VPS from @ShardHost, performance is solid and till now no downtime at all. I opened 1 ticket asking for more templates, they replied quickly and added two OS templates after several hours. I also get discounts for following month :)

    Thanks for the comment. This also applies to anyone who helped us test. Simply open a ticket to get a discount on the plan for subsequent months if you wish to keep the VPS

  • I have received on of their VPS's, It's really nice. Performance is really nice.
