Rackdog United States Ashburn Unmetered Bandwidth Cloud Server Test and Review

We checked out the Rackdog Cloud Server in Ashburn, USA, offering unlimited bandwidth. It runs with a high-powered Intel Xeon Processor and has a setup with a 2-core CPU, 4GB of memory, 60GB of SSD storage, a super-fast 10Gbps internet connection, endless data transfer, and one IPv4 address.

Here’s how we tested it:

  • We ran Yabs and Unix Benchmark to see how well it performs under general conditions.
  • For network quality, we looked at connections worldwide and tested response times.
  • We also checked if it could access media content from different regions.
  • For internet connection stability, we used the Cloudflare test.
  • We also measured website speed with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
