OpenVZ VPS Review

HostUS recently had another strong showing on the Top Providers Poll at LowEndTalk, making it in the top 5. With 100’s of companies that have a presence at LET this is very impressive. Because of the recent poll I decided to share some quick information on my HostUS VPS service.

I love my HostUS box. It’s reliable and it performs great. Uptime is currently at 131 days and it’s still chugging along. For $15 US a year my VPS includes 768mb ram, 20gb disk space and 2000gb bandwidth. This was part of a LET promotion and may not always be available for purchase. Their typical plans start at less than $6 per quarter and they currently offer 8 locations in the USA, UK, China, Australia and Singapore.

Uptime has been fantastic. UptimeRobot reports it’s been able to reach my site hosted on the service 100% of the time. The site loads quickly and hasn’t had any issues. I opened one support ticket marked Low Priority to the billing department. My ticket was answered in 45 minutes. The response was professional and to the point. More information on the server can be found below. I’m pleased to see another VPS company offering budget plans with high quality service. If you need a reliable VPS please give HostUS a look! Cpanel/WHM, WHMCS, Positive SSL and other services are available for an addon fee.
