One of the most popular question in web hosting forums, Facebook groups, or Quora is, “Which Email Provider Should I Use?” You will also find lists published by many tech blogs on this topic. Many of them update the lists regularly, or republish their lists as new posts that are titled,

“Which are the Top Email service providers for 2020” .. and so on.

In this post, I will list the email service providers I have used in the past. Also included are other services or sites that have mostly positive reviews. You will also find a list of references or resources at the end of this post.

Nexaracks VPS: Benchmarks

Last week, user Someshzade from Nexaracks 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.

Creating a VPS using Hyper-V - Datawest, Australia. Screenshot by Amar Vyas

Introduction: KVM Plan by Datawest

Over at LET and LES, came the post about the ‘deal’ by Datawest- a provider from Australia. At 3.3 Aussie Dollars (INR 150) a month, a 1 CPU Core/ 6 GB SSD/ 1 GM RAM/ 1 TB BW KVM was tempting enough to try – at worst, for a month. Thus began my journey of struggles, frustrations, and finally some success with this VPS.
