[VPS] VPS 2 - FuzzyHosts
#1
INTRODUCTION:
Hi. I thought of reviewing this VPS now since I suddenly got access again to the VPS and FuzzyHosts is also shutting down.
Take this as a goodbye review to them

SPECIFICATIONS:
Spoiler: show
Quote:CPU: 1.2Ghz 4C Intel Xeon E5-2620v2
RAM: 2GB
Disk: 100GB HDD
Monthly Traffic: 1TB
Virtualization: OpenVZ
Bandwidth: 1Gbps
Control Panel: SolusVM (or None?)
The specifications are really nice for a free vps! FuzzyHosts was also one of the long time providers of FreeVPS. (Please note the WAS. They went deadpool)
Quite sad that they're going away though.

Network speed is pretty decent. I have higher latency in some USA locations for some reason but I get that's just some weird routing issues.

PERFORMANCE:
The VPS is quite fast even though it's clock speed isn't that high. I guess the core count really compensates for it. The single core speed can't compare to the NoUptime VPS I just reviewed a while ago but the multi-core speed defeats that one easily.

RELIABILITY:
It WAS pretty reliable back in 2016. It was in 2017 that the reliability went downhill. There was quite a significant amount of downtime in the last few months. I haven't had it over a year since this was a replacement to my VPS 8 when BoneVM shut down their services. 

CONTROL PANEL:
Typical SolusVM blablabla. But the control panel was lost a few months ago sadly. Even the site admins lost access to it.

VPS USAGE:
I use this to host a few websites. It is quite nice to use as a web server since it has a decent amount of cores. PHP runs well on this server.

WHAT WOULD I IMPROVE:
Nothing. They're a dead company now :'(

FINAL VERDICT
Rest In Peace FuzzyHosts.

RATING?:
Random.Org pls
#2
I still remembered..
it was my first VPS from FreeVPS.us, and I really had enjoyed their service,
I guess I still carry their speedtest at my signature to keep those memories..
There specs were really great.
But all goods at some point of time always comes to an end.

For using the above Postcounter simply copy its link and replace the userid with your once.
if you have /30 posts count slot then just add &vps2 at the last of your postcounter url.

So first it was vps8 and then vps2. Looks like everytime you get a vps they have to close the business. plz dont request a vps18 next time. 😂

Web Hosting is a highly competitive business. Its not easy for small players to servive unless they run a tight ship. This is not the first sponsor who had to close the business and this wont be last either. Even though all of us want our sponsors to do well. s-it happens.

Back in 2014 I had a KVM VPS funded by FreeVPS.us and they shut it down as well Cheese
VPS 9? from GoodHosting shut down as well. I guess I just really have bad luck Happywide
(But hey, VPS 8 from BoneVM ran for more than a year Tounge )

They didn't really explain why they shut down their services. They indeed have good VPSs.
#7
FuzzyHosts was indeed a good provider. Some of you may remember my VPS 10 review a while back. Up until they began to have issues earlier in the year, my VPS had no downtime, not even for maintenance, and I have a screenshot somewhere on my old hard drive of 'uptime' reading 365 days. We are sorry to see them go.

Was it an one guy show or medium size hosting provider ? In most cases when it's a just one person do all, type of business, there is a good chance things start going side ways. Mainly people owner could be a good guy with good technical skills but not so good in managing business and cash flow. But again, It might be even a personal problem or something.

I couldn't find anything about them in Lowendbox apart from an old promotion. Also their domain expire 6th next month.

I heard they were good, however they seem to have to go. Sorta wondering wondering what all the people who lost there VPS, and maybe even their data if they didn't backup it, what they're going to do.

Their is a good giveaway open again, probably everyone who wants a VPS will get one, but then it's mostly 512MB servers....
Thank you HostUS for VPS 16!

Check out @coreyman's Free VPS Club for a free VPS with only 15 posts/month!
No waiting required to get a free VPS, just make posts and apply!

It was a 2 man show before afaik. Then one of them died.

Even if it was a small company, they have pretty good services. It's just this year that things went wrong.

@IEpicDestryoer
A lot of the owners lost data afaik. The close down was a short notice. But I mysteriously still had access to my VPS until now. (It went down for a day then it got back up) I backed up my data already Cheese
