BitLaunch United States Los Angeles Standard Privacy VPS Hosting Test and Review

We will review the BitLaunch Privacy VPS Server in Los Angeles, USA. The server uses a common KVM processor. The setup includes a 2-core CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 50 GB of SSD storage, an internet port with a speed of 1 Gbps, unlimited traffic, and either 1x IPv4 or 1x IPv6 address.

We’ve analyzed various aspects through different tests:

– Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to measure important performance numbers,
– Global Node Test to understand the network’s effectiveness on a wider scale,
– Global Ping Test to measure response times.

We also considered the Media Unlock Test to check regional content availability. We assessed connection quality through the CloudFlare Internet Test. Lastly, we used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance to evaluate how well websites perform on this server.

Payments

BitLaunch uses its in-house payment system, which offers flexibility and provides customers with the best possible user experience and payment privacy. They currently directly support Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin.

Here’s how the payment process works:

  1. Making a Payment: After creating an account, you will need to fund your account. Funds sit in your account and are represented as a USD balance. You must make a payment request (Add funds) each time you want to pay. Each time, the address will be different to improve privacy, as they never reuse addresses.
  2. Cryptocurrencies Supported: BitLaunch currently directly supports Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Litecoin. If you’d like to pay with something else, you can use flyp.me to send it to one of their addresses.
  3. Privacy: BitLaunch uses its payment processing solution, which enables them to control what information they use to facilitate your transaction, which means they don’t need to rely on third parties.
  4. Fast Transactions: For your transaction to complete quickly, you need to use a competitive fee to include your transaction in a block. They always include a recommended fee at the bottom of each payment invoice.
  5. Paying from an Exchange: Paying from an exchange can sometimes take longer than sending directly from your wallet as they tend to batch-send transactions. Additionally, some exchanges take their fees from the intended amount, which results in the invoice being underpaid.
