HostVDS United States Dallas Highload Cloud VDS Server Test and Review

In this review, we’re testing the HostVDS Highload Cloud VDS Server in Dallas, United States. The server has an Intel Xeon E3-12xx v2 (Ivy Bridge, IBRS) Processor, supported by 4 CPU Cores, 16 GB RAM, 80 GB SSD Storage, a 1 Gbps Internet Port, and a generous 10 TB traffic limit. Accompanying all this is a dedicated IPv4 address.

We are employing intensive assessments to put this server through its paces. The Basic Benchmark, Yabs, and Unix Benchmark tests are designed to measure essential server metrics. Beyond those, we turn to the Global Node Test for a comprehensive examination of the server’s network performance, joined by the Global Ping Test to accurately measure latency.

We will also run the Media Unlock Test to analyze regional accessibility and the CloudFlare Internet Test to accurately reflect the server’s connection quality. Furthermore, we delve into web performance metrics through tools like PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix Performance.

Server Pricing

The cost implication for HostVDS’s services is contingent upon your specific plan. It’s crucial to acknowledge that these prices are fluid and may undergo changes.

To ensure you’re basing your decisions on the most current and accurate information, it’s highly recommended that you visit the official HostVDS website or reach out to their customer service team.

Traffic Billing Rules

0.5TB is provided for free on the $0.99 tariff.
1TB is free on the $1.99 tariff.
2.5TB is free on the $4.99 tariff.

And so on – for every $1 of the tariff, 0.5TB of prepaid traffic is given.

Both incoming and outgoing traffic are counted.

Traffic exceeding the limit is charged separately: 1TB = $1.

If you use the server for less than a month and remove it, the excess traffic is calculated proportionally to the service’s existence time.

Example:

You purchased the $0.99 tariff, used it for 10 days, consuming 0.4TB of traffic during that time, and then removed the service.

Calculation:

If you had used the service for a month, all that traffic would have been free, but since the server was removed after 10 days, a portion of the traffic will be considered used beyond the limit according to the formula:

0.5/3010-0.4 = 0.23TB – excess.
0.231 = $0.23 will be deducted from the account balance for the excess traffic usage.
