This test is in the BandwagonHost United States Los Angeles Shared vCPU VPS Server, running on KiwiVM, a secure control panel developed in-house. It allows to perform all basic management tasks: start/stop, OS reload, Emergency console, rDNS (PTR) record management, datacenter migration, snapshots, usage statistics, API, etc. The virtualization platform is KVM.

The server is powered by QEMU Virtual CPU version (cpu64-rhel6). 2 vCPUs/1 GB Memory/20 GB Disk/1 TB Transfer Traffic/1x IPv4.

BandwagonHost offers a special feature: Migrate to another data center, This feature allows you to physically move your VPS to another location. During the migration, all data on your VPS is preserved, and the total downtime will be only a few seconds to a few minutes. However, the IP address of your VPS will change. If you host websites or other services utilizing DNS on this VPS, you would have to also update the DNS records of all websites.

If services running on your VPS bind to static IP addresses instead of wildcard IP ( or localhost (, then you would have to also update the configuration files of such services to use the new IP.
