HostVDS Russia Moscow Highload Cloud VDS Server Test and Review

We recently reviewed the HostVDS Russia Moscow Highload Cloud VDS Server. It’s equipped with an Intel Xeon E3-12xx v2 processor and comes with a solid setup: 4 CPU cores, 16GB of RAM, 80GB of SSD storage, a fast 1Gbps network port, 10TB of data transfer allowance, and a single IPv4 address.

Our team ran a series of standard benchmarks to measure the server’s basic performance. We also checked network performance across different locations and measured how quickly the server responds to global requests.

Additionally, we tested how well it accesses various regional content, evaluated the quality of its connection with CloudFlare, and looked at how fast web pages load using tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Admin Control Panel

HostVDS Russia Moscow Highload Cloud VDS Server Test and Review

HostVDS’s Admin Control Panel is designed to be user-friendly and efficient, catering to new and experienced users. Users can self-provision virtual machines (VMs) without tickets or human interaction. This feature is particularly beneficial for users who must quickly set up VMs for testing or application deployment.

The Admin Control Panel provides direct OpenStack (Horizon) API access. This feature allows users to manage their resources more efficiently. It also offers a wide range of VM templates, saving users time and effort setting up their servers.

However, it’s important to note that while the Admin Control Panel offers many benefits, some users have reported issues with network bandwidth stability on very cheap plans. Additionally, the VMs are not on High Availability (HA), which means there may be moments of downtime and VM recoveries.
