99Stack Australia Melbourne Intel Xeon Processor VPS Hosting Test and Review

This time, we’re putting the 99Stack Australia Melbourne Standard vCPU VPS Server to the test. It is powered by an Intel Xeon Processor (Cascadelake) with 2 CPU cores, 4 GB RAM, 80 GB of SSD storage, a 1 Gbps internet connection, 3 TB bandwidth, and an IPv4 and IPv6 address.

Our review covers a range of tests to check everything you need to know: We’ll kick off with the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark to get the server’s fundamental performance. To understand how it does on a global scale, we’ll conduct the Global Node Test for a thorough network check and the Global Ping Test to measure response times.

We’ll run the Media Unlock Test to ensure you can access media content smoothly. The CloudFlare Internet Test will tell us about the quality of the connection, and to see how fast and efficiently web pages load, we’ll use tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.
