Summary

Exceptional VPS Hosting, do you agree with that phrase? If you ever tried or you are currently hosting your site with 6sync, then i bet you will a hundred percent agree with that phrase. Let’s get closer with this vps hosting.

Price vs VPS Specification

Basic thing for people before they choose VPS hosting is the price and spesification. Mostly or normally (i will not talking about overselling VPS) for OpenVZ VPS with 256 memory and 100Mbit shared port speed, the price will be $5. Add a few bucks and it will be XEN VPS, probably $7 or $8. For harddisk space i will count it as a bonus or freebies, let’s say 10GB harddisk space. About the CPU, probably one dedicated CPU core or access to all CPU shared. So, with those basic price you will get space, data transfer, memory, and CPU. What about if we add some guarantee like “you can sleep peacefully without being disturbed by a fear of downtime or slow network?” It includes a real 99.9% uptime (i believe there’s still 0.1% possibility for issue), top notch hardware, and fast support response. I will not say the exact cost of those guarantee, but you can imagine yourself how much the cost of those plus basic specification. And that makes 6sync prices and specifications are really make sense.

Biscuit

One of my friend said that their control panel management makes him want to orgasm. The Biscuit is a simple, all in one, creamy, and really crispy control panel management. I can say that because it has all of essential function of VPS management, support, and billing. It is like an instant access to both VPS and 6sync people. Yes i can say that Biscuit is instant (fast). The OS templates they have are stable and complete, for me the latest 32 and 64 bit version of CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu is more than enough. I don’t know what to say anymore about Biscuit, you should try it yourself.

The Box

About two and a half months i have been with 6sync and it is still up until now without network interruption or reboot needed. VPS performance? Benchmark? Network? You can take a look at the test result, that’s what i told you about real top notch hardware and network, i have never seen the benchmark result for VPS as high as 6sync does. And disk i/o test result was also incredible, 180MB/s on average. The biscuit has made my friend want to orgasm, but the performance of 6sync really makes me orgasm.

One last thing about 6sync, other than their great performance, the people of 6sync is a group of young fella, they are fun, cool, and rock! 😀 9.5 from 10 points for 6sync.
