Reviews and expert opinion VPS Malaysia

VPS Malaysia provides shared hosting, VPS, and dedicated servers with SSD storage and a 99.9% uptime SLA. The prices are premium, but the support is superb.


Overview

VPS Malaysia

VPS Malaysia was founded in 2012, so it’s a relatively new entrant to the hosting industry. Despite its name, this vendor sells more than VPS hosting; it also offers shared hosting and dedicated server packages. VPS Malaysia has worked with more than 50,000 customers, and its website and support are both available in English.

Features and Ease of Use

VPS Malaysia provides a range of services. Its shared hosting plans, in particular, come with the following standard features:

  • 99.9% uptime guarantee on all plans
  • Backups available at additional cost
  • Free .com /.net /.org /.us domain registration
  • Up to 50 hosted websites
  • Free SSL certificates
  • Up to 500 GB SSD storage space
  • Unlimited bandwidth

This host co-locates its servers in the CX2 data center in Cyberjaya, Malaysia. While this vendor doesn’t own the data center, it does guarantee 99.9% uptime with credits for excessive downtime.

The servers use SSD (which is up to ten times faster than traditional HDD) in RAID 10 configuration, to safeguard data in the event of a disk failure. All the shared hosting plans use CloudLinux to isolate you from other hosted customers.

Shared hosting plans come with the cPanel control panel and the Softaculous one-click installer for more than 400 programs.

Unfortunately, if you’re just starting out, there is no website building tool. Still, if you’re a more advanced customer, you get support for PHPMySQL databases, and (according to the live chat operator) all popular programming languages.

Pricing and Support

VPS Malaysia’s prices are quite high, but you should take into account that you get a free domain name (for annual plans) and an SSL certificate. The only additional costs are site backups.

The resource allocations are also high; with the ‘Starter’ package, you get 10 GB of disk space and unlimited bandwidth. However, you can only host one domain with this plan.

You can purchase hosting plans on terms ranging from one month to three years, with a more than 50% discount (plus a free domain name) for committing to more than a year.

You can access 24/7 customer service by telephone (business hours only), live chat, email, or by submitting a support ticket. My personal experience with the support team was positive. When I contacted this company via live chat in the early evening on a weekday, the operator responded straight away and helped me in English:

How much does VPS Malaysia cost?
VPS Malaysia offers plans from $2 to $38. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which VPS Malaysia plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. VPS Malaysia can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. An increase in visitors to your site often takes longer than expected, and you shouldn’t pay more money until it is necessary. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from VPS Malaysia here.
How good is VPS Malaysia’s customer support?
VPS Malaysia is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of VPS Malaysia being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.

I have worked with many providers, but I have not seen Windows vps with the initial settings to improve speed..it's awesome and delivery of login details to the server was done quickly. i think your price are fair but you can set more off on your plane.

Great services

Fast setup and quick response to any inquiries. Easy to setup a vps server to run some software. This is the cheapest service I can get on the market. Although its the cheapest but the services provided do not say so. You will not regret getting this service.

Bottom line on VPS Malaysia

As a relative newcomer, VPS Malaysia is not one of the leading Malaysian hosting brands. You’ll pay a premium for the plans and extra for backups. However, with SSD-based hosting, a reliable 99.9% uptime SLA, the Softaculous installer, and excellent customer service, it may be worth it.

Before you make a decision, check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros:

  • Efficient 24/7 customer service
  • 99.9% uptime guarantee
  • Speedy SSD storage
  • Premium one-click installer

Cons:

  • Prices are high
  • Backups are an added cost
