HostNamaste USA California Affordable KVM VPS Hosting Test and Review

We recently evaluated the HostNamaste USA California Affordable KVM VPS Hosting, powered by an Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2650 v4 with a 2.20GHz processor. They featured 3 CPU cores, 4 GB RAM, 100 GB SSD storage, a speedy 1 Gbps internet connection, and a generous 4 TB bandwidth.

Our review included various tests to measure performance, network speeds across different locations, and latency. Specifically, we ran Basic Benchmarks, Yabs, and Unix Benchmarks to assess performance. We used the Global Node Test to check network speeds from various locations, and for latency, we conducted the Global Ping Test.

To access media content, we performed The Media Unlock Test. We also evaluated connection quality using the CloudFlare Internet Test, and for web performance, we checked scores with PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix.

Shifting our focus to the client control panel, HostNamaste has designed a user-friendly and intuitive interface. This control panel is the hub where you can manage all your hosting services.

The control panel allows you to set up your websites. Whether launching a new site or managing an existing one, the control panel makes it easy. You can adjust settings, install software, and monitor your site’s performance, all from one place.

Moreover, the control panel is not just about management; it’s also about monitoring. You can monitor your resource usage, track your bandwidth, and view your website’s traffic statistics. This gives valuable insights into your site’s performance and helps you make informed decisions.

Conclusion

Our initial tests focused on basic performance metrics, including I/O speed and network capabilities. The server’s I/O speed improved across three tests, starting at 220 MB/s and reaching up to 317 MB/s, settling at an average of 281.7 MB/s, which we consider good. Network performance varied widely by location, with impressive speeds in local tests (e.g., Los Angeles and Dallas showing exceptionally high upload and download speeds).

The Yabs Performance Bench showed remarkable disk speed results, especially in mixed read/write scenarios. For smaller block sizes, speeds were good, but they skyrocketed for larger blocks, achieving up to 22.31 GB/s, indicating excellent disk performance. The Geekbench 6 Benchmark tested single and multi-core CPU performance, scoring 785 and 1960, respectively, which shows standard to good CPU power.

UnixBench tests, evaluating CPU performance under varied loads, showed significant improvements when running multiple parallel tests, with a system benchmarks index score soaring from 791.6 in single-test scenarios to 2061.6 when fully utilizing the three CPUs. This highlights the server’s capability to efficiently handle multiple tasks simultaneously.

In conclusion, the HostNamaste KVM VPS in California demonstrates great disk speed and CPU capability performance, particularly under load, with solid I/O speed and decent geographical network performance. While it excels in local and some international connections, there might be some challenges in specific global regions. It’s a robust choice for those requiring powerful hosting solutions with reliable performance across various workloads.
