Hello readers! We did not post reviews for some time now, but we are back now and this one is about HappyBeeHost.com. We got our hands on the HappyBeeHost.com SSD-1 OpenVZ plan with 1GB of RAM and 4 CPU cores. You can check all of their plans including one which we got on this page. So let’s start with our review and testing:
