Compared to REBOX1, the value of this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is somewhat weak in terms of host node single-core Passmark and monthly bandwidth. Disk type is reasonable, and it offers excellent value in terms of number of vCPUs, RAM and disk size. The highlight is no doubt the blazing 10 Gbps port speed (a rare offering for lowend boxes) that leaves our REBOX1 in the dust.
The overall LEBRE score of 165 suggests that this HostDoc Dallas sale offering is of exceptional value compared to the reference REBOX1 and should perform similarly well, capable of handling a medium sized website without breaking a sweat. If you want the fastest download speeds, this box is for you. If you need lots of bandwidth, consider HostDoc’s Kansas offer instead.
TL;DRA solid all-rounder that easily rivals the reference box. Recommended for those with a need for speed.
Compared to REBOX1, the value of this HostDoc’s offering is very weak for host node single-core Passmark, lacking quite a bit of juice compared to recent offers on LEBRE. Disk type and port speeds are reasonable, but it truly shines in number of vCPUs, RAM and disk size. The highlight is no doubt the unlimited bandwidth at 1Gbps port speed that blows to bits our REBOX1.
The overall LEBRE score of 216 suggests that this HostDoc Kansas offering is of extreme exceptional value, obliterating the reference REBOX1. The host node CPU is pretty weak, but everything else more than makes up for that weakness. If your use case requires lots of RAM and fast bandwidth, look no further.
TL;DRJust buy it now if you don’t need a powerful CPU.
Security researchers have discovered that the latest CPUs from Intel are still vulnerable to exploits.
Given the spate of vulnerabilities discovered even in Intel’s latest processors, if you are concerned about the security of your existing lowend box, please ask your provider if they offer AMD servers. If you intend to purchase a new lowend box or feel a need to change provider because your provider does not offer AMD servers yet, you can check with providers in The Whitelist.
We will update The Whitelist with a note next to the provider if we get information that they offer AMD servers.
Compared to REBOX1, the value of SmartHost’s offering is weak for host node single-core Passmark and bandwidth, but reasonable for disk type, disk size and port speed. However, its value is very strong in terms of number of vCPUs and exceptionally strong for RAM, clearly blowingREBOX1 out of the water.
The overall LEBRE score of 85 suggests that this SmartHost offering is highly competitive relative to the reference REBOX1, especially if number of vCPUs and RAM is a key concern for the intended use case.
TL;DRIf you need a dedicated server performance but don’t have the money for one, get this.
