About dhwebs.net

My name is Dean Hills. I’m an enthusiastic VPS owner and as such would like to share my VPS experiences and in particular my participation in VPS post to host forums. I’ve included some basic information for those who are new to VPSs and need quick information of how to set up and manage a Linux VPS for the first time.

For those who come from a Windows environment a Linux VPS can be daunting to get familiar with, but these days there is so much information available on the Web, one can literally Google one’s way through setting up a VPS. Learning is fast as Linux has a great logic to it.

This Blog is located on Server 16 of Post4VPS.com. Earlier in the month I was the temporary VPS holder of VPS 15 from Hostlease, and did a review of VPS 15 at post4vps.  Prior to VPS 15  I was the proud owner of VPS 9 (Phoenix).

Speed was amazing and installation fast and seamless with VPS 9 when I took ownership of it in April 2018.  VPS 15, although acceptable speed, turned out to be much slower than VPS 9, mostly due to the much slower connection: 1 Ggbps (VPS 9) vs 100 Mbps (VPS 15).

With VPS 16 everything worked lightning fast with the VPS.  VestaCP took approx 5 minutes to load, WordPress under 5 minutes.  I had this blog loaded and working within minutes of first getting into VPS 16. In addition to having a faster connection speed (VPS 16 – 1Gbps vs VPS 15 – 100Mbps) difference with VPS 15 is that VPS 16 has a KVM configuration and this is a very good example of how much faster KVM works.  This was the speed when I first started working with the VPS:

Here are the specifications of VPS 16:

Disk Space 20 GB SSD
RAM: 1 GB
Virtualization: KVM
Monthly Traffic: 2 TB
Location: Los Angeles
Connection: 1Gbps
Provided by: Hostlease

Objective of trying VPS 16 out is to do a review of VPS 16 before the next Giveaway on 1st of April.  The Review should hopefully be ready well before that date.
