Conclusion

We have found this provider to post advertising on LEB so we picked up one VPS to test. Price for this VPS is $5 USD per month, and it is special offer right now. For that money, we got 2 cores of E3-1240 v3 @ 3.40GHz.  Also, this VPS comes with 4GB of RAM! Yes, this is an unbelievable offer for such a low price, and it will be hard to find a provider to match this price and these resources! They also offer 24/7/365 technical support.

As you can see from our test, we have a low upload speed 35.11 Mbit/s and servers are 1Gbp/s or at least they are advertised like that. Also, we got low I/O speed on these SSD drives in RAID10 57.1 MB/s which is also low. To be honest upload speed, and I/O is lowest compared to other providers which we review. So we have opened a ticket at 20th, 2018 17:01 (we took this from their WHMCS) and the answer is provided 50 min later, which is fast for a budget provider.

 

Your vps have 1gb port speed. Also regarding I/o you have shared SSD get high performance.

To be honest we do not know what “shared SSD get high performance” means but this kind of I/O is far from high performance. If you don’t mind such network and  I/O performance, and if support is not your priority you may place an order with HostBRZ but always before you do so please make sure that you have read Terms of Services.
