Conclusion

We have found this provider to post advertising on WHT so we picked up one VPS to test. Price for this VPS is $4 USD per month, which you can also see on their website. For that money, you will get pretty old CPU Xeon X5570 which was made back in 2009.  Also, you will get 1 core even if 2 are advertised. They mention on their website that it is high-performance VPS with 700Mbps – 1 GB/s I/O. Well as you can see from the test, we got on average 86MB/s which is far, far from 700Mbps – 1GB which they advertising.

We made a ticket due to low speed and 1 CPU. The problem with CPU was fixed and the ticket was responded in a few minutes. They also offered to make new VPS on another node “We generally provision the higher valued plans on higher powered nodes” which we refused, as this should work out of the box for all clients, and all should get an advertised specification. A full refund is provided as per their terms of services.
