In this post, I will do a quick review of VPS by Nexusbytes. Below I am posting the results from two test setups that user @seriesn from Nexusbytes provided. They are a provider out of Middlebury, Connecticut and they contacted me through LowEndTalk requesting for my review. While I am still a learner and a beginner, I cannot let go of a chance to test out a VPS, with some new learnings (as always) along the way. Let us dive into the review right away.
As I write this post, we are two weeks away from Black Friday
This is the final set of benchmark tests on VPS’es. Starting next week, I will put them to the intended use. One quarter of idling nearly eight VPS’es is enough 🙂
A discussion on Lowendtalk forums introduced me to a new script on running benchmarks. I promptly tried it this morning and got some interesting results:
In this post are the results of running a few more benchmarking tests on the KVM VPS’es machines. In particular, running the dd test and also a failed attempt at running bench.sh.

Till April this year, I did not even know what a VPS was. Five months later, I am writing a post comparing the performances of different VPS’es, some of which are KVM, others OVZ and the rest are NAT devices.
I learnt about using speed test-cli through discussions on LowEndTalk. It was a relaxed Saturday afternoon, and it seemed like a god opportunity to try out something new. I took screenshots or copied out results with different VPS machines that I have recently started using…

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. Which *also* meant that my plans of having a beer or two with schoolmates did not materialize. For the record, I do not like the term, “hacking” but running out of words here – maybe some time later I
