99Stack United States Seattle Intel Xeon Processor VPS Hosting Test and Review

This round, we will perform an in-depth evaluation of the 99Stack Standard Shared vCPU VPS Server based in Seattle, United States. The heart of this server model is the Intel Xeon Processor, more precisely, the Skylake model with IBRS enhancement.

It has 2 CPU cores and a powerful 4 GB of RAM. For storage facilities, it boasts an efficient 80 GB SSD storage. Network-wise, it provides 3 TB traffic support and two IP addresses- one IPv4 and one IPv6.

Our analysis encompasses various rigorous tests: the Basic Benchmark and Yabs Benchmark for essential metrics, the Global Node Test for extensive network assessment, and the Global Ping Test for latency measurement.

The Media Unlock Test for regional accessibility, the CloudFlare Internet Test for connection quality, and web performance evaluations via PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance. You will gain profound insights into overall server performance through these exhaustive assessments.
