BitLaunch Netherlands Amsterdam Standard Privacy VPS Hosting Test and Review

We are set to evaluate BitLaunch‘s Standard Shared vCPU VPS Server located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The hardware bolstering this server comprises a traditional KVM processor, equipped with two vCPU Cores, 2 GB RAM, 50 GB SSD Storage, a swift 1 Gbps internet port, unlimited bandwidth, and 1x IPv4 addresses.

Our evaluation methodology is comprehensive and meticulous, involving numerous demanding tests. We employ the Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests for basic hardware capabilities. The Global Node Test will allow us to perform an in-depth network infrastructure assessment, while the Global Ping Test will help us measure latency responses effectively.

The Media Unlock Test will be deployed to examine regional accessibility. The capacity and quality of the connection to CloudFlare’s network will be determined through the CloudFlare Internet Test. We will also assess website performance using PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance tests.

Getting started with BitLaunch is straightforward. You only need to navigate to their website and click the “Get Started” button. If you prefer a personal touch, you can say “Hello” on their live chat, and a representative will promptly guide you to set up a free trial. Once registered, you can orchestrate the creation of a new server by choosing a provider, the server size, and your preferred operating system.

BitLaunch grants access to high-caliber cloud servers from renowned providers such as DigitalOcean, Vultr, and Linode. From there, you can pay for server services using common cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin. Enriching user experience further, BitLaunch includes one-click installations of privacy-focused apps like OpenVPN, WireGuard, and Shadowsocks R, fortified DDoS protection, and an extensive palette of operating systems spanning Linux and Windows.

Any assistance you need to get up to speed is readily available in their Help Center. It features many articles on diverse subjects, including VPS connectivity, SSH usage, one-click applications, troubleshooting for Windows, VPS management, logs, monitoring, and policies regarding terms, acceptable use, and privacy.

Admin Control Panel

BitLaunch offers a highly intuitive Admin Control Panel, enabling seamless interaction with every first-party BitLaunch server directly from your browser. Quick accessibility to your VPS in merely two clicks eliminates the need for third-party programs, and it also serves as a vital asset when debugging connection issues with your VPS by offering an out-of-band service.

To harness this feature, locate the three dots adjacent to any BitLaunch server and select “Console.” This action opens a pop-out browser window where you can sign in and execute commands as usual. Once linked, use the buttons at the window’s top to paste and trigger a Ctrl + Alt + Del command.

For those who prefer a graphical user interface, BitLaunch also provides servers with a pre-installed GUI. When initializing a server via your control panel, you’ll spot this option as “Ubuntu Desktop.” It’s an ideal path to take when your server is in its infancy since upgrading an existing server from a non-GUI model to a GUI-equipped one isn’t possible.

BitLaunch embraces a broad spectrum of cryptocurrencies for cloud server payments, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Monero, XRP, Dash, Ripple, Ethereum Classic, and more.

Paying for cloud servers using cryptocurrencies bestows several advantages. Of these, the primary benefit is that cryptocurrencies provide a practical, cost-effective, and ostensibly more secure server payment medium. As decentralized entities, they defy control by any central authority, such as banks or governments, lending to heightened security and lesser susceptibility to fraudulent activities or cyber breaches.

BitLaunch also integrates an exclusive in-house payment system – BLPay. It’s devised to prioritize your privacy above all. The savings are transferred to the customer by eliminating third-party fees. The payment process is swift and simple, but BitLaunch keeps you apprised at every juncture.

As stipulated in BitLaunch’s Terms and Conditions, all payments are considered definitive, with neither refunds nor withdrawals available. However, they do accommodate a free trial upon request. Therefore, making an informed choice before committing to their services is essential.
