Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD Special

Wishosting is now having a limited time offer with their Boxing Day 2019 special offer. This provider is not one with flashy promotions, but when they do offer promotions, you should certainly take notice because they are usually superb deals! Here are the specs of the current Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD Special:

  • Intel Xeon E5-2670 v2 @ 2.50GHz
  • 2 vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 100GB disk storage
  • SSD disk type
  • 5TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 1 Gbps Port
  • $9.99 per quarter (or $3.99 monthly)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Kansas City, Missouri

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower $3.33 per month amount) is as follows:

Well, well, what can we say? Compared to REBOX1, this Wishosting offer only failed to match our reference box in two aspects: CPU Passmark score and Disk Type, although both of these are still acceptable in terms of the price-performance ratio. When we look at all the other indicators, they easily hold their own compared to REBOX1 and is most certainly excellent value for money!

The RAM and bandwidth are very generous for the quarterly pricing, and the 100GB fast SSD storage you get for a mere $3.33 per month (if you pay quarterly) is an absolute steal. You will probably not have to worry about running out of space ever if you are not doing anything particularly intensive on storage like video files, raw DSLR images or Linux ISOs.

The overall LEBRE score of 143 suggests that this box is superb in value and justifiably so. The CPU is doesn’t get speeding tickets like our REBOX1 but it is more than sufficient to power most needs. Everything else is a bargain for that price, and this should be one of your Christmas hauls this year.

TL;DR At a monthly price of less than half of a Starbucks coffee, this is an affordable beast for most use cases. Just buy it already.

If you are afraid of missing this excellent Wishosting KVM Boxing Day 2019 SSD offer, buy your box immediately and support Wishosting, who is on The Whitelist.

HostDoc Black Friday 2019 Dallas Dual Compute

HostDoc has already started their Black Friday 2019 sales with an even tastier offering than their previous Dallas offer we presented several weeks ago. The specs of this Black Friday 2019 offer is as follows:

  • Intel Xeon Gold 6128 host node
  • 4 vCPU
  • 4GB RAM
  • 25GB + 100GB Disk
  • NVME + HDD Disk Type
  • 1TB Monthly Bandwidth
  • 10 Gbps Port
  • £3.74 per month (annual payment; otherwise £4.49 per month)
  • KVM Virtualization
  • Location: Dallas

The results of the LEBRE scoring methodology (using the lower £3.74 amount) is as follows:

Compared to REBOX1, the value of this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is somewhat weak in terms of host node single-core Passmark, disk type is reasonable and the monthly bandwidth is clearly a bummer at 1TB monthly.

BUT, this HostDoc Black Friday prescription offers crazy value in terms of number of vCPUs, RAM and disk size, with a blazing 10 Gbps port speed (a rare offering for lowend boxes).

The overall LEBRE score of 194 suggests that this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is of exceptional value compared to the reference REBOX1. HostDoc has outdone itself, beating its own previous Dallas offer (which already trounced our reference REBOX1 by a large margin). The main downside is the 1TB bandwidth but everything else more than makes up for this. This box will perform like a dedicated for just a fraction of the price of low end dedicated servers.

TL;DR Likely to offer performance rivaling low end dedicated servers at a fraction of the price. Especially recommended for those who need computing power and ultra-fast bandwidth.

If you are afraid of missing the HostDoc Black Friday 2019 Dallas Dual Compute, buy your box immediately and support HostDoc, who is on The Whitelist.

Special note: if you are wiiling to go beyond the $7 limit that we set on LEBRE, HostDoc has what could the ultimate value high performing VPS offer (8 vCPU, 12GB RAM, 10TB bandwidth) this Black Friday for just £8.33 per month (annual payment). Check it out here.
