1984 Iceland Highly Reliable and Secure Green Energy VPS Hosting Test and Review

We recently reviewed the 1984 Iceland VPS hosting, designed for those needing strong reliability. The server is equipped with a QEMU virtual CPU and includes a 2-core processor, 4 GB of RAM, 80 GB of SSD storage, a 100 Mbps internet connection, 4 TB of bandwidth, and one IPv4 address.

Our review covered several key tests: We ran standard benchmarks to check basic performance, network-wide tests to evaluate connectivity worldwide, and latency tests to measure response times.

We also checked if you can access media content across different regions. Finally, we examined the internet connection quality using CloudFlare’s tools and tested website speed with tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

About 1984
