Review of ReadyDedis KVM in Mumbai- Black Friday 2020 Offer

In this post, you will find the benchmarks and a short review of a 2 core CPU/3 GB RAM VPS in Mumbai, from ReadyDedis a VPS provider from India.

Introduction

I had reviewed a VPS by ReadyDedis in August last year, when I had their service for 2 months. The 1 GB RAM/ 1 vCore CPU VPS in Mumbai cost around 4 US dollars a month. Since then, the desire to have a VPS in India was strong. Come Black Friday 2020, Ready Dedis brought a surprise- a 3 GB RAM VPS with 2 vCore CPUs, at 4 US Dollars a month. The offer was too good to let go and I signed up again.

Wrapping up and Takeaways

Over the past month, I put this VPS to a limited use, particularly for hosting my wife’s blog site (another WP Install on Gridpane). One fine day, the server stopped responding, logging on to my account showed that the system had shut down. A reboot later, all was good to go- this has been my only hiccup with this VPS so far. if all goes well, I might consider shifting this blog to this VPS- after all, finding good web hosting in India is rare, and a cheap VPS with good quality in India is even more rare.
