Host-Stage Windows VPS Review?
Host-stage has a long and rather messy Terms of Service. When it comes to VPS you are not allowed to having them for hacking activities, spamming or installing illegal software.
At the time of writing this review Host-stage offer consists of 8 VPS hosting plans. That’s quite a lot! All purchases are protected with 30-days a reimbursement guarantee.
There are several hosting plans: from minimal 0.5GB RAM machines to huge 16GB RAM monsters. This means you can really tailor the hardware to your needs.
Our Windows VPS was set up in 14 hours, however we made the purchase during the night so it really means about 7 business hours. We got a typical confirmation email with all the specifics. The client panel is a standard WHMCS panel with no reboot, start or shutdown buttons for your own personal virtual machine. In the event that of any troubles you have to open a support request. Host-stage can be contacted in many different ways:
support ticket seen from the client’s panel, email, forum private message. We tested the response time outside of the usual business hours and got the replay during … 8 minutes! Amazing! They are advertising 24/7 support with 1 hour response guarantee and I really believe in which.
What can we read from these numbers? This Windows VPS is a lively, well create machine. The strong points are great RAM speed and quick HDD.
The network performance test, which is one of the most important aspects of your blackhat VPS.
The average internet upload speed is 253.38 Mb/s (very good!), while the average download speed is 223,81 Mb/s (very good!) – all measures taken with speedtest.net.

Please note that it always stays above the 100Mb/s threshold – and you be aware that you’re getting what you’re paying for (1Gb/s port).
