Summary
Back to the nature with a review, it is now ZanyHost. As usual i got maxmind error when placed an order because my country is (probably) suspected as a fraud one. My first and second ticket was merged by sales department, i don’t know why, because usually in my previous hosts when i opened a ticket and ask the different questions, they’ll tell me to open a new ticket, but it’s okay, i don’t have any problem with this. But the second ticket seems to be a little late for respond, more than 6 hours for my question about OS(es) in SolusVM that don’t up to date. They told that they would update the OS (especially CentOS – my request) but it is not updated until now, but again it’s not a problem for me because i didn’t take it for serious purpose and i can still update it with yum even it took more time than updating CentOS 5.5. About the speed they’re good, especially from UK, and when i checked the datacenter location of the IP address it shows UK location whereas only Atlanta and Chicago location on their website. For the uptime i don’t have any problem, they have a good network. Anyway i played a little bit rough with their X3320 Xeon, even it is not an enterprise class for selling VPS(es) but as long as they put the right portion for each VPS(es), it will be good. So far i’m quite satisfied with their VPS, with a real budget price but reliable, 7.5 points for ZanyHost.
