Conclusion

Starting with the Basic Bench test, we found that the input/output (I/O) performance averaged 143 MB per second. During the upload and download tests, particularly in nodes closer to home, like Los Angeles, with the server hitting over 2,000 Mbps for uploads and around 1,200 Mbps for downloads. The Yabs Performance Bench test showed varied results depending on the block size, with large blocks reaching up to 922 MB/s, signaling good performance. The UnixBench test showed that the server’s CPU could handle a high workload, especially with eight simultaneous processes.

In conclusion, the HostTheBest server from Utah performs no problem. It handles data and processes efficiently, boasting significant speeds, especially in regional tests. The mixed read/write speeds are solid, scaling well with larger block sizes.

Overall, this unmanaged VPS offers a dependable environment for most web-based needs, making it a worthy consideration for those looking for performance and price in their server choice.
