HostVDS Netherlands Amsterdam Highload Cloud VDS Server Test and Review

In this review, we’ll put the HostVDS Highload Cloud VDS Server in Amsterdam, Netherlands, through its paces. This server features an Intel Core Processor from the Broadwell range with the IBRS feature. Additionally, it has a 4 Core CPU, ample memory with 16 GB of RAM, and sufficient storage with an 80 GB SSD. The server also boasts a 1 Gbps Internet Port connectivity and a generous bandwidth of 10 TB. It has one IPv4 address for easy network accessibility.

To thoroughly appraise its capabilities, we’ve conducted a multitude of tests:

1. Performance Benchmarks: We used tests such as the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark, which measure key metrics to assess the overall server performance. These benchmarks comprehensively understand the server’s processing power, memory efficiency, and storage speed.

2. Network Assessment: The Global Node Test was conducted, which offers an expanded evaluation of the server’s network performance. This determines the server’s ability to handle data transfers and connections across diverse global nodes.

3. Latency Evaluation: The Global Ping Test measured latency. This helps us determine responsiveness and the time it takes for the data to travel from the server to different geographical locations worldwide.

4. Regional Accessibility: We conducted the Media Unlock Test, which verifies the server’s ability to access different media content across various geographical regions. This is a critical indicator of its regional accessibility and content-unlocking capabilities.

5. Connection Quality: We used the CloudFlare Internet Test to measure the quality of the server’s connection with CloudFlare’s global network, which is integral for website performance and security.

6. Web Performance: We also exhaustively evaluated web performance metrics using tools like Google’s PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance. These tools give insights into how well the server delivers web content while maintaining optimum loading speed and performance.

Each aspect of our test battery intends to give you a comprehensive understanding of the server’s capabilities and areas of excellence. This will equip you with the crucial knowledge to determine if this server meets your needs.

HostVDS.com’s Admin Control Panel is a crucial part of their hosting service, but specific details are not readily available in the search results. Generally, an Admin Control Panel in a hosting service allows you to manage various aspects of your website and server.

Features often include the ability to view your console, reboot, restart, gain full root access to the web hosting control panels as the server admin, change your OS, manage firewall settings, and more.

For accurate and detailed information about HostVDS.com’s Admin Control Panel, I recommend visiting their official website or contacting customer service. They should be able to provide you with comprehensive information about the features and functionalities of their Admin Control Panel.

Conclusion

Testing began with the Basic Benchmark, where we measured I/O speeds over three cycles; the average speed was 508.3 MB/s. Next, we performed speed tests across various global nodes using the Node Name Upload Speed Download Speed Latency tool. Of note were impressive speeds in Amsterdam (download 417.54 Mbps, upload 244.56 Mbps) and Los Angeles (download 433.31 Mbps, upload 3037.13 Mbps).

In the Yabs Performance Bench, we analyzed the server’s read, write, and total speeds under different block sizes. The server demonstrated excellent performance even under mixed R/W loads with top speeds of 1.90 GB/s (1m block sizes), further solidifying its reliability. The Geekbench 6 Benchmark Test resulted in a Single Core score of 687 and a Multi-Core score of 1955.

The UnixBench test further verified the server’s performance under CPU-heavy tasks. The server had a System Benchmarks Index Score of 641.1 with one parallel copy of tests. When 4 parallel copies of tests were run, the benchmark showed an impressive upgraded score of 2147.0, showcasing superior multi-tasking abilities.

Lastly, we performed a Media Unlock Test to assess regional accessibility. The server can access Dazn, YouTube Premium, Amazon Prime Video, TVBAnywhere+, YouTube CDN, and Spotify, among others, proving meaningful regional accessibility. Some services like Hotstar, Disney+, and Viu.com were inaccessible to this server.

In conclusion, the HostVDS Highload Cloud VDS Server performed well, demonstrating exceptional processing power, high-speed data handling, and satisfactory regional accessibility. Its robust capabilities make it a noteworthy option for those seeking a reliable, high-performing hosting service. Whether the server fits your needs will depend on your requirements, particularly its regional restrictions with certain media platforms.
