Shock Hosting Singapore Scalable and Affordable Virtual Server Test and Review

We recently put Shock Hosting‘s Singapore Virtual Server to the test. This server comes equipped with a virtual CPU from QEMU (version 2.5 or newer) and offers a solid setup: a 4-core CPU, 8 GB of RAM, 120 GB of SSD storage, a fast 1 Gbps internet connection, plenty of bandwidth at 8 TB monthly, and both an IPv4 and IPv6 address.

We ran several tests during the review, including basic speed and performance checks. Yabs and Unix Benchmark to measure the server’s capabilities. Global Node Test to look at network performance worldwide. Global Ping Test to see how quickly the server responds.

To check the server’s ability to access content from various regions through the Media Unlock Test and evaluate the quality of its internet connection using the Cloudflare test. Additionally, we used PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to assess how well it handles web content.
