ServerPoint United States Dallas ColossusCloud General Purpose VPS Test and Review

We recently tested the Dallas-based ServerPoint General Purpose VPS. It’s got a powerful Intel Xeon E5-2683 v4 processor clocked at 2.10GHz, along with 4 CPU cores, 4 GB of RAM, 80 GB of SSD storage, a fast 1 Gbps internet connection, 4 TB of bandwidth, and both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

Our tests, Basic, Yabs, and Unix Benchmarks, checked the server’s key performance indicators. The Global Node and Ping tests examined network reliability and response times. We tested for regional content access with the Media Unlock Test. Connection quality was put through its paces with the CloudFlare Test. Finally, we assessed web speed with PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.
