AlexHost Moldova Reliable Unlimited Traffic VPS Hosting Test and Review

Our recent testing of the AlexHost Moldova VPS showcased a server capable of handling unlimited data with a modern setup. Equipped with a 2-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 40GB SSD, it performs well for various tasks. The server is well-connected, sporting a 100 Mbps internet connection and IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

To evaluate its performance, we ran several tests. We started with basic benchmarks to measure its computing power. Then, we used Yabs and Unix Benchmark for more detailed performance metrics. We checked its connection speeds with the Global Node and Global Ping tests.

We performed the Media Unlock Test to understand how well it can access regional content. To assess connection quality, we used the CloudFlare Internet Test. Lastly, we looked at how well it supports websites with PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Conclusion

Digging into the performance, the server showed strong input/output (I/O) capabilities, averaging 570 MB/s across multiple tests. Network testing indicated consistent upload and download speeds hovering around 80 Mbps, but speeds dipped significantly in Asia, particularly in China. Latency was naturally higher when connecting to distant locations like Los Angeles and Singapore, but it remained low in Europe, as expected, due to geographical proximity.

The disk performance was impressive, with mixed read/write operations showing speeds up to 1.45 GB/s for larger block sizes. CPU capabilities, measured by UnixBench, revealed robust multi-core performance, doubling the results when utilizing both CPUs compared to a single one. A thorough Media Unlock Test suggested that while services like Dazn and Amazon Prime Video were accessible in Moldova, others like Netflix were limited to original content, and platforms like Disney+ were unavailable.

In conclusion, the AlexHost Moldova VPS is a solid choice for those seeking a powerful and reliable server solution with strong disk and CPU performance. The server managed well in network connectivity, with fast speeds and reasonable latency across most tested regions. However, potential users looking for wide international media access should be aware of the limitations found in our tests.
