Features and Ease of Use
VPSFAST is a straightforward VPS hosting provider with the following basic features:
- 99% uptime guarantee with all plans
- SSH access
- Both Linux and Windows OS available for most packages
- 20 to 80 GB of HDD or SSD storage
- 500 GB to 3TB of bandwidth available
Although their plans can’t be scaled up enough for those who require high-security enterprise-grade solutions, you get pretty decent high-performance VPS solutions with VPSFAST. Their range of plans will fit all but the largest and most resource-intensive websites. You also get between one to four powerful Intel Xeon CPU cores and 512MB to 4GB ECC RAM, which should be enough for most medium-sized businesses.
What’s probably the best feature is that you can get up to 1 Gbps port speeds depending on your server location. With over 59 global locations spanning every continent and 46 different countries, you’ll definitely be able to find something close to your target market. However, you’ll need to carefully select your server location as not all of them support IPv6 nor come with free DDoS protection.
One downside is that you’ll need to manually set up data backups via the SolusVM control panel, as these won’t be configured for you automatically. VPSFAST also does not offer domain registration services or SSL certificates, so you’ll have to get these elsewhere.
Pricing and Support
Since VPSFAST only offers KVM VPS hosting, you shouldn’t have much difficulty deciding between their simple range of products. They maintain that they don’t need to offer a free trial since they already provide a seven-day money back guarantee and their prices are already so affordable. They aren’t wrong; their prices are inexpensive for VPS hosting, and they’ve got decent resource limits and offer good value for money considering the hardware they run on.
Their four VPS hosting plans only differ in the amount of computing resources you get. You can opt between monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual billing terms. You also get a few freebies, such as a Windows license at no extra cost, the SolusVM control panel, free DDoS protection in certain locations, and IPv6 in most locations. Speaking of locations, your total costs may vary depending on where your servers are located. Note also that prices listed are in US dollars. If you purchase multiple products, you may be entitled to discounted rates.
Unfortunately, the only way to contact their 24/7 customer support is via a ticketing system. However, their support isn’t the best: in many cases, they’ve been largely unresponsive. In addition, they don’t provide tutorials, a knowledge base, or even a forum for DIY enthusiasts.
