IamSRV describes itself as "a modern IT service provider that provides hosting and technical support services for servers and networks." It lets you take a VPS, cloud, or dedicated server for a test drive for 30 days.

Overview

IamSRV

IamSRV provides rental servers, VPS, and cloud hosting to over 2,000 customers worldwide. Services are staffed by ten competent engineers with extensive cloud hosting and network experience. Over seven years, this company deployed more than 5,000 servers on its hosting infrastructure.

IamSRV’s website can be switched between the Russian, English, and Ukrainian languages. The three websites are easy enough to navigate, but some things are missing (TOS and Privacy Policy), and the English website has some HTTP 404 (not found) pages.

Features and Ease of Use

Starting with hosting infrastructure, IamSRV uses only Cisco network equipment and servers from top vendors such as Hewlett Packard, IBM, and Dell. Servers are located in Frankfurt and Amsterdam, but they can be deployed in ten locations where there are cluster servers. The SLA-backed 99.9999% uptime warranty will credit you with an hour’s worth of hosting for any downtime, but such interruptions are unlikely because this firm uses high bandwidth connections with a dedicated 100 Gbit capacity.

IamSRV uses a content delivery network (CDN) to improve page loading speeds. The intelligent distribution system stores your static content on multiple servers around the world, whereas dynamic content is served directly from RAM.

I sometimes wonder how new customers are expected to find the right VPS or dedicated server configuration without a trial. Fortunately, IamSRV lets you test-drive a VPS or dedicated free for a month. When you order one of these servers, it comes with free installation, connection, and configuration, and all cloud servers come with guaranteed resources and KVM virtualization.

Pricing and Support

IamSRV’s flexible pricing helps you find a package that matches your budget. Your cloud hosting or VPS will be deployed instantly, providing you uses a verified PayPal account to finalize your order. You get a full 30 days to test-drive a VPS or dedicated server, and you can sometimes get last-minute deals when it comes time to pay.

IamSRV claims to take customer care seriously, and it has a Russian and English bilingual 24/7 technical support team. I was keen to find out why the English website throws up so many HTTP 404 (not found) error pages, but my offline chat message went unanswered. So, it seems the 24/7 support doesn’t extend to pre-sales support.

If you have to resort to self-support, you will at least find a reasonably well-stocked knowledge base:

Bottom line on IamSRV

IamSRV’s prices are great, and it allows you to test-drive a VPS, cloud, or dedicated server for 30 days. Services are backed by a 24/7 bilingual support team, but I was unable to summon any pre-sales support.

Pros

  • Bilingual (English and Russian) support team
  • Guaranteed resources for rental servers
  • Excellent network uptime
  • 30-day test drive

Cons

  • 404 error pages on the English website
  • No terms of service

Take a server for a 30-day test drive with IamSRV.
