Nexaracks VPS: Benchmarks

Last week, user Someshzade from Reform Hosting reached out at LowEndSpirit. He wanted to know if I would be interested in running Benchmarks and testing out their new VPS. My reply was, hell yes! Withing a few minutes, he sent another message with the VPS details.

Default operating system the VPS came with was CentOs, which was not to my liking. In Virtualizor Panel, the options available were : Ubuntu 16,04, CentOS, and Windows . I opted for Ubuntu, even though my personal preference is Debian if available. Anyways, were are not here to discuss the merits or lack of) Linux distributions.

Mini-review: IntoVPS, Cluj Part I

The Long Story Short : How I ended up Testing the VPS 

**If you would prefer to dive straight into the mini-review, you can skip this section and head straight to the “Nuts and Bolts” segment**

Sometimes, long time plans do not work out, and often they get replaced with some unexpected developments. Yesterday (Friday) was no different.

I was originally planning to work from home, neded up working from my coworking space instead. That’s when I learnt that there was a session on growth “hacking”  by someone whose work I admire. Therefore, ended up staying back till 6 PM. Which meant that when my wife and I travelled back together, we faced the Friday evening rush hour.
