Located in Seoul, South Korea, YunDC is a small hosting provider that has specialized in Linux-based VPS and dedicated server hosting for almost a decade.
The YunDC.net website is in English, but its client area can be switched into several alternative languages.
Features and Ease of Use
YunDC offers three VPS packages for Ubuntu, Fedora, and CentOS, which come with a number of useful features including:
- 100% guaranteed uptime
- Full root access
- SSH access
- XEN and KVM
- 300 GB to 800 GB bandwidth
- 30 GB to 50 GB SSD storage
- 2 to 8 hours setup time
The VPS servers include processors with eight cores, and RAM ranging from 1024 MB to 3072 MB. You also get one dedicated IPv4 with any subscription, but – as with most Korean companies – you cannot add more IP addresses. Unfortunately, the VPS packages don’t come with a control panel, but you do get full root access and the ability to manage your server through SSH. Put simply, these solutions are not for you if you don’t have a technical background.
Moving on from virtual private servers, YunDC does three dedicated server plans with the following features:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- 4 GB to 16 GB RAM
- 1000 GB to 2000 GB bandwidth
- Support for Linux and Windows
- 12 to 24 hours setup time
Unlike the virtual servers, the dedicated servers are more customizable. For example, you can install your own operating system through IPMI, or let YunDC do it for you. You can also add more IP addresses, and manage your server via SSH, IPMI or KVM. Dedicated server storage varies according to your subscription, and you can choose between 128 GB SSD storage, 1000 GB SATA III, and 2 x 1000 GB SATA III.
YunDC houses its servers in a private cage in Korea’s KDT data center; a sophisticated data center that includes South Korea’s largest broadband operators: LG, SK, and KT.
Pricing and Support
YunDC offers reasonably priced VPS packages that should satisfy all your basic needs. The dedicated server packages come at a higher monthly cost, and (like most Korean providers) you have to pay setup fees. This company doesn’t do refunds.
You can contact YunDC’s customer support team by telephone, support ticket, or email. Unfortunately, I received no reply for several days… and counting. If you have to resort to self-support, it appears that you’re limited to two F.A.Q. pages: one for virtuals servers, and one for dedicated servers. Despite what it says on the website, these are not really knowledge bases:
