Spartan Host United States Dallas DDoS Protected SSD Premium KVM VPS Test and Review

We recently checked out Spartan Host‘s high-end VPS hosting service in Dallas, which boasts strong DDoS protection and speedy SSD storage. It’s based on a top-notch AMD Ryzen 9 7950X 16-core CPU and offers a decent setup of 2 CPU cores, 2 GB of memory, 50 GB of SSD space, a super-fast 10 Gbps net connection, 3 TB of data transfer, and a unique IPv4 address.

We put the server through its paces with a variety of tests. We used common benchmarks to gauge basic performance, network-wide tests to see how it connects globally, and a ping test for response time.

Additionally, we looked at whether it can stream content from different regions, checked its connection quality through CloudFlare, and judged web performance with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

SpartanHost’s VPS Admin Control Panel is a comprehensive tool allowing users to manage their virtual private servers easily. It provides a wide array of functionalities that make server management a breeze.

One of the key features of the control panel is the ability to manage multiple servers from one dashboard. This feature is particularly useful for users with multiple servers, allowing them to monitor and manage all their servers from one location.

The control panel also provides an SSH console, which allows users to access their servers remotely. This feature is crucial for server administration, as it allows users to perform tasks such as installing software, configuring server settings, and troubleshooting issues.

Another notable feature of the control panel is the VPS API. This feature allows users to interact with their servers programmatically, which can be particularly useful for automating tasks.

The control panel also allows users to reinstall their operating system with ease. This can be particularly useful when the operating system has become corrupted, or the user wants to switch to a different one.

In addition to these features, the control panel provides tools for changing the root password, viewing the server’s screen via VNC, and managing rDNS. It also allows for custom ISO uploads, which can be useful for users who want to install a specific version of an operating system or a particular software package.
