HostHatch Hong Kong High Performance Cloud Compute VM Test and Review

Our recent test of HostHatch‘s high-speed cloud servers in Hong Kong yielded impressive results. This server, driven by an AMD EPYC 7513 processor with 16 cores, is well-equipped with 96 GB RAM and 250 GB of fast SSD storage. Network performance is top-notch, thanks to a 10 Gbps connection backed by a generous 10 TB data transfer capacity and an IPv4 address.

In our testing, we looked at a few different areas:

  • We ran some standard benchmarks like Yabs and Unix Benchmark for basic performance.
  • To see how well they connect worldwide, we did a comprehensive network check using the Global
  • Node Test and measured how long it takes data to travel with the Global Ping Test.
  • We also checked if they can access media content from different regions with the Media Unlock Test.
  • Connection quality was tested through the CloudFlare Internet Test.
  • Finally, website speed was measured using tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

In simple terms, we put these servers through their paces to see just how fast and capable they are!

Admin Control Panel

HostHatch Hong Kong High Performance Cloud Compute VM Test and Review

HostHatch’s cloud Admin Control Panel, or Peregrine, is a top-performing cloud control panel with a clean and intuitive user interface. It was developed in-house and rewritten from scratch in 2021 and 2022. This panel is the natural successor to their previous control panel, Falcon.

Peregrine is designed to make managing your servers a breeze. It provides users with a comprehensive set of tools to manage their services, monitor usage, and make changes as needed.

In addition to basic server management, Peregrine allows users to upload their own ISO image and deploy it on their VMs, just like on a bare metal or a physical server. This feature provides users with great configuration flexibility.

Moreover, Peregrine supports high-performing 40 GbE public and private networking. The private networking feature allows users to add a second network interface to their servers to communicate in the same location, away from the public internet, extremely fast and securely isolated.

Payments

HostHatch offers a variety of payment options for its services. Customers can pay with major credit/debit cards and PayPal. This flexibility makes it easy for customers to choose the payment method that is most convenient for them.

HostHatch invoices its customers for fees and expenses monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. Payment is due immediately upon the invoice date for recurring services. If an invoice remains unpaid two days after it is due, the associated services are suspended, and after 5 days, the services are terminated. Any data stored on the service is completely wiped.

In the event of a chargeback or dispute, the entire account, including all active services under the account, may be suspended. HostHatch may cancel the account completely without any refunds at their sole discretion in these cases.

HostHatch also offers a 7-day money-back guarantee. If unsatisfied with their products, you can request a refund within 7 days of purchase. However, this refund policy applies only to their virtual private servers (VPS) and requires a valid reason. Valid reasons include issues that are caused directly due to the fault of HostHatch.

Issues outside their control or network do not qualify for a refund. You may be charged for the resources you have used, including but not limited to bandwidth, RAM, and storage space. Upgrades, one-time fees, setup fees, and licensing fees are non-refundable.

Customer Support

HostHatch provides customer support through several channels. Their technical department offers support 24/7/365. This means that no matter what your problem is, you can contact them for help.

For questions regarding invoices or upgrading or downgrading services, you can contact their Billing Department, which is available from 9 AM to 5 PM EST. Similarly, their Sales Department can answer questions about their services and is available from 9 AM to 5 PM EST.

In case of abuse (intrusion attempts, hacking, spamming, or other unacceptable behavior) from a HostHatch address space, you can email their Abuse Department, which operates 24/7/365.

You can reach the support team via email and submit a ticket by logging into the client area. However, it’s important to note that there is no phone or live chat support.

Also, some users have reported that the response times can be quite long, and you are expected to possess some technical knowledge, so assistance with setting up programs may be limited unless the issues are related to the server.

Conclusion

Looking at disk performance, the servers maintained a consistent I/O speed averaging around 1262.9 MB/s, demonstrating reliable data transfer capabilities both within the server and to external destinations. Network connectivity tests revealed exceptional upload and download speeds across various global locations, especially low latency within Asian regions, signifying their strong presence in proximate markets.

When tested with different block sizes, the servers showed remarkable handling of mixed read/write operations in the Yabs Performance Bench, achieving up to 5.48 GB/s. This is indicative of the robustness of the server’s disk operations, which is crucial for data-heavy tasks. Additionally, benchmarking with Geekbench and UnixBench illustrated the server’s impressive computing performance, with high scores across various CPU-intensive simulations, making it a compelling choice for computational tasks.

Assessing the capability for regional content access, the server had some limitations. It allowed streaming from popular services like Amazon Prime Video and YouTube Premium from the Hong Kong region. Still, restrictions were noted for services like Netflix, offering only Originals and no access to HotStar or Disney+.

In conclusion, the HostHatch cloud servers boast exceptional performance with high-speed computational capabilities and network connectivity, especially within Asian regions. While not all media services are accessible, the server’s powerful hardware and impressive benchmarks make it an excellent choice for demanding tasks and prove that it can deliver high levels of efficiency for various workloads.
