Panamaserver Panama Private and Secure Offshore VPS Hosting Test and Review

We recently reviewed Panamaserver‘s private and secure VPS hosting based in Panama. This service runs on a powerful Intel Core Processor and comes with a setup including 2 CPU cores, 4 GB of memory, 40 GB of SSD storage, a 100 Mbps internet connection, 2 TB of data transfer, and both an IPv4 and an IPv6 address.

To evaluate this hosting service, we ran a series of tests. We used basic benchmarks to check fundamental functions, Yabs and Unix Benchmark for key performance metrics, a worldwide network test for a thorough connectivity check, and a ping test to measure how quickly the server responds.

We also looked into regional access with the Media Unlock Test, checked connection quality through the CloudFlare Internet Test, and assessed web speed and efficiency with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Conclusion

Initial tests for basic server performance indicated solid I/O speeds averaging 360 MB/s. Internet speeds were strong in most locations, with download and upload speeds just shy of 100 Mbps, except in a few regions where performance lagged notably. The service maintained generally low latency, indicating quick response times, crucial for a smooth user experience.

Further detailed assessments using Yabs benchmarking outlined consistent read and write operations, showing that the server could handle data at a quick pace with mixed read/write operations. The Geekbench test yielded a single-core score of 830 and a multi-core score of 1503, suggesting the server’s processor can manage both singular and multiple tasks effectively. The UnixBench scores painted a similar picture; especially notable was the doubling of performance when the server ran two parallel copies of tests, showcasing good scalability.

Region-specific accessibility testing told us the server is well-equipped for content delivery, successfully unlocking major streaming services and responding with the correct regional settings. However, services like HotStar and purchase options like Spotify registration appeared inaccessible from this server.

In conclusion, the Panamaserver VPS hosting service demonstrates a reliable and strong performance with excellent connectivity and speed. The results from various benchmarks suggest that this server can handle various tasks well, making it a solid choice for anyone looking for secure hosting with the ability to serve a global audience. It is particularly adept at content delivery with regional restrictions. Potential users might only consider looking elsewhere if their audience requires full access to all regional content and services tested.
