[VPS] NoUptime Community VPS
#1
INTRODUCTION:
Hello. I'm reviewing the VPS provided for free by NoUptime. 
The review is quite mandatory as well Cheese (Required.) Well, I also wanted to do it.

SPECIFICATIONS:
Spoiler: show
Quote:CPU: 4Ghz 1c/1t Intel i7 - 6700k
RAM: 1.5GB
Disk: 30GB SSD
Monthly Traffic: 1.5TB
Virtualization: KVM
Bandwidth: 1Gbps
Control Panel: Virtualizor
They chose some odd numbers for the RAM and monthly data cap which is kinda weird. Not like it affects the VPS that much. 
The CPU is actually quite nice. It seems like we get access to a full shared core. The CPU is an odd one as well though. Who would expect a desktop overclockable processor in a dedicated server? (Well, IIRC the TDP is lower than some Xeon processors ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

Network speed is what you would expect from a decent provider. 1Gbps Up/Down is pretty much the norm in the hosting section right now. (Hope it goes to 10Gbps though Cheese)
I did 5 speedtests to show the average speed. Other speedtests from the FreeVPS benchmark is in the Benchmark section.

PERFORMANCE:
Given the fact that it has a beefy Intel i7, it's performance is actually very good. Perfect for the cpu-bound node.js stuff I'm running. Network performance is very fast as well. I get low latency pretty much almost anywhere in the USA. (Ones where I usually connect to.)

RELIABILITY:
I can't speak much about this. I've had the VPS for a few months now. The uptime is pretty fine. It's actually up since I got the server. (With the exception of the multiple times I reinstalled this VPS)
Currently, the uptime is at 24 days. I said that I can't speak much because it's just been a few months since I got this VPS. Uptime is pretty good for that time though.

CONTROL PANEL:
It's one of your everyday VPS control panels. Virtualizor. There's nothing much to say about this since everyone knows about this already.

VPS USAGE:
I use it mostly for node.js scripts and bots. I do things like develop node.js scripts or bash scripts as well. 

WHAT WOULD I IMPROVE:
Like in my old "VPS 8 - BoneVM" review, it's the core count. I wouldn't mind a lower clock speed if I get 2 vCores. It's quite helpful in some tasks.

FINAL VERDICT
Don't go for this provider they have NoUptime! JUST KIDDING!
They're a great provider. I think they have a great future ahead Smile 

RATING?:
Mostly random numbers so meh. Go to random.org and set a limit of 1-10. Whatever you get is my rating Cheese
#2
@Conan The review isn't mandatory Smile

Under reliability you mentioned your VPS had a uptime of 28 days while you had the VPS for a few months, how did this happen?

I really think the joke is misplaced in your final verdict since some people take that literally.

As far as VPSes go I'll give it a 10/10 (biased I may be)
#3
@MichaelW
iirc it was from what I read before. Also the tickets iirc.

I reinstalled it a few times. (I was messing with other operating systems)

I bolded the justkidding part because of that Happywide
#4
Their uptime is really good unlike thier name, support is super friendly as well even though i am a not paying customer they pretty much respond to me anything and fix the stuff i have problem with. I have their VPS for well over 2 month now, not a single incident over uptime.
#5
Well, This has been posted before, But still would like to review it., I also own a free VPS from them and the uptime is really 99.99 tho.
Even tho i'm not a paid client but still the treat me like a paid client and their support staff is so awesome, They really help me in anything, Even though it's a problem from my side still they confirm it, Well @NoUptime , Thank you for the service.
I also own a WebHosting reseller from them , I only had a 0.001% of downtime with it Happywide
Overall rating from me 10/10

They are very good, however, I think this is the first time I had a slowdown, was yesterday, the internet connection slowed down for some reason. Maybe the node I'm on is starting to get more busy. It's ok today, sorta, but it's still slower..

However I don't understand why the cdn is so fast while access to everything else is so slow. Maybe the cdn is using the same datacenter? The network slowdown is still here today as fast as I can see it.

The speed should come back soon anyway. Smile
