"Viking Layer – High Quality Virtual Private Servers"
Viking Layer, a Dr. Server brand is one of the top hosting services I've used. I host commercial sites on my $2 Viking Layer VPS and it's never let me down. This review is on a LowEndBox special which includes 512mb ram, 20gb storage and 1000gb bandwidth for $2 euro per month. Which is about $2 USD at todays exchange rate. I've had this service for three months and host four small to medium commercial sites and the Webuzo control panel. Other than a manual restart initiated by me the server has had zero down time. After three months I have not experienced any server degradation since purchasing the server.
I love services like Viking Layer. They provide a great product that keeps working and they leave you alone. Some companies like to send out weekly to monthly newsletters that include details on what's happening within the company and promotions such as coupons. Viking Layer is absolutely silent and I appreciate that. They keep their client up to date with this information via the customer panel and twitter.
Server stats are below. I'm getting the resources I paid for. Server has great up-time and I'm very happy with the network. They use Virtualizor to control the VPS, which is my favorite panel. OS options are CentOS, Fedora, SuSe, Ubuntu and Scientific. Whether you are looking for a budget or a high-end VPS service, Viking Layer has you covered.
