AccuWebHosting Windows VPS Plan's Research Report

Prons

A miniscule 1.18 seconds to swiftly respond to our stressful 500 concurrent connection tests.

Superlative support with a phenomenal 100% uptime for the entire prolonged duration of our 15-day uptime test.

No-cost to reinstall and rebuild the Operating System of your VPS.

Convenient Pre-configured hosting tools, with a ready to deploy setup to accelerate your hosting plan.

An Upload speed of 768.8 Mbps and an 811.36 Mbps download speed. Incredible speed for the price you pay. If you reach these blazing-fast limits, you know that your website has made it big-time.

Cons

Unlimited Bandwidth isn’t on offer, unfortunately. Of course, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and it’s always worth going for quality over quantity.

No free complimentary domain registration comes with a Windows VPS here. You can’t win them all.

Research summary

AccuWeb Hosting is one such VPS host par excellence. Economical, affordable offerings that still maintain first-class Windows VPS performance, powered by sophisticated Hyper-V virtualization and unparalleled blazing-fast Solid-State Drive (SSD) storage. Whether you are a newbie, a small business, or a fully-fledged enterprise that demands a certain level of service, AccuWeb provides a premier quality service. Their technically gifted professional support team demonstrates a commitment to exceptional high-level technical troubleshooting that is nigh-unparalleled. With a breadth of experience that encompasses 12000+ Windows VPS customers, enticing offers of complimentary backups, a comprehensive and user-friendly knowledgebase, with an uptime to be envious of, every dollar you disburse pays out dividends in superior quality, experience, and peace of mind.

Our Exemplary Methodology

We could have chosen the uncomplicated way out, and simply collated data from the provider’s respective websites. That’s lazy, though. Instead, we undertook, and continue to undertake, an extensive research program to reach a far more objective and scientifically authoritative conclusion for users of our VPS hosting directory. The above analysis indicates some of the information we analyze, and to perform it, we leased a Windows VPS server from AccuWebHosting and conscientiously monitored it to evaluate their services over a duration of approximately one month. All critical elements were rigorously examined: uptime, backup procedures, support skills, load capacity, as well as any other relevant key features.
