Summary

It was a good offer from Hostingation, “Get it while it lasts, will not be seen again”. I will start with the VPS specification. 5GB space, 128MB Memory, 1 Core CPU, 500GB data transfers, and it is KVM. See the benchmark score of this box, 1610 points, it is very good and i guess because KVM. Disk I/O test also quite good, 100MB/s rate average. Next about the speed access, unfortunately i only got 1 Megabyte per second, or maybe 10mb/s. If this box used 100mb/s port then it will be a really good Xmas gift, but with 20 dollars a year or $ 1.6 per month it is worth it than your $3 or $5 OpenVZ VPS :D. So i will give Hostigation’s Xmas KVM special 9 points from 10 points.
