Summary
Let’s review this unmanaged vps hosting provide, Bass Host, if you take a look at the logo on their page, it is a bass (large mouth) fish showed within their logo. I don’t know maybe the founder of basshost’s hobby is fishing bass fish or something like that, but certainly it has nothing to do with the web hosting thing, lol. Allright, look at the whois picture of Bass Host, they are using server(s) from FDC Servers, i heard so much bad review about it but that’s just another people’s review, don’t trust. Okay next, for five bucks you got 384MB memory, 25GB storage, and 250GB data transfer @ i don’t have any idea how much port speed they are using, because sometimes they are fast and some other time they are slow, but i got a good speed when i tested from two of my servers located in United States and Deutschland. For the disk I/O test we cannot rely on this unmanaged (or we could probably say budget) vps, 50MB/s on average and around 800 for benchmark score (two Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz). I guess that is for my personal review, five bucks is still worthed for this VPS, 8 points from 10 points for this provider.
