Summary
QuickWeb dot co dot nz, you must be familiar with this one, the famous New Zealand web hosting provider. I’ve seen them since 2009, my friend also told me that they are good, but i just have an opportunity to try them this time. I had their Supa VPS package in London with 1Gbit connection which is really fast to access from most location. I like their OS library in SolusVM, complete choice and up to date. Their support response is also good, just like the advertising said, 30 minutes response, and they are quite friendly in treating all of my questions related to vps issue. For the price, i bet they are one of the affordable vps provider in the world, they keep the quality of their vps (even if it is openvz which is very possible to oversell). I only have one problem with their vps, it is nameserver resolution. When i tried to do download, it took a little time to resolve with the destinations, they told me that i have to wait for the level 3 to fix this problem, and they give me temporary solution for this issue, i have to edit /etc/resolv.conf and replace the old nameservers with the new nameserver . It was bothering me a little because i have to edit and replace the nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf everytime i reload the vps and they really have to fix this nameserver resolution problem, other that that, everything was great, you can rely on them. Overall, 9 points from 10 points for QuickWeb SupaVPS.
