Conclusion

We are really pleased how this cheap yearly VPS plan from SwiftSlots works. At this time we did not test support as we didn’t get any problem, and uptime is great 63 days. As you can see in our previous test (OVH SSD VPS and  SparkVPS 640MB SSD) this VPS perform much better. Also,  DD test provided us with much better stats. In our personal opinion, we got really good speed for classic HDD in RAID configuration. For sure this is a good value for the money, as this plan at SwiftSlots cost only $24 per year ($2 per month). They, also offer complete 7 days money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with services.
