Our comments

We found AccuWeb Hosting VPS' was capable enough to handle 500 concurrent users trying to browse NopCommerce ecommerce store. They all received the response in just 1.18 second time.

By far, our tests reveal that the Windows VPS offered by AccuWeb Hosting have proved to be one of the best VPS mainly because of (i) virtualization technology (Microsoft HyperV); and (ii) Solid State Drive on Raid-10 platform.

This research is conducted to test AccuWebHosting Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections. At the end of 30 minutes, the stress testing was running with the 500 active connections.

AccuWeb Hosting offers both (i) file level backup (which is paid); and (ii) virtual disk level backup (which is complimentary). Complimentary backup helps the users to restore the backup in case of any accidental data loss.

In this research, we tested their backup facility and restoration process for Windows VPS. Some of these companies offer file level backup (you can backup and restore individual files) and some of them offer virtual disk level backup (only backup of an entire vps and restoration of the same, no file level backup or restoration is offered). We also tested their backup frequency and how fast they process your restoration request.

Our comments

While we audited, we found the Windows VPS was fairly stable to handle 400 concurrent users of NopCommerce Ecommerce Store with a response time being one second. However, as the number of concurrent users were increased by another 500, it resulted in a higher response time of 10.06 seconds for each user.

This research is conducted to test Hostwinds Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online.

While we tested, we found the Windows VPS was fairly stable to handle 300 concurrent users of NopCommerce Ecommerce Store with a response time being one second. However, as the number of concurrent users were increased by another 200, it resulted in a higher response time of 17.90 seconds for each user.

This research is conducted to test Croatian Web Hosting Windows VPS's capacity to handle a stress of 500 simultenous connections. We've used loadimpact.com online tool to perform stress testing. In the time span of 30 minutes, 500 simultenous connections were created to their virtual server. In the very first 5 minutes, 80 users were simultenously online. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections. At the end of 30 minutes, the stress testing was running with the 500 active connections.

They offer both virtual disk level and a file level paid backup. Any offering of complimentary backup will add up to value addition.

In this research, we tested their backup facility and restoration process for Windows VPS. Some of these companies offer file level backup (you can backup and restore individual files) and some of them offer virtual disk level backup (only backup of an entire vps and restoration of the same, no file level backup or restoration is offered). We also tested their backup frequency and how fast they process your restoration request.

Rather than obtaining data directly from respective website and make them available to our directory users, we've choosen to undertake an extensive research to reach to a scientific conclusion. For this, we leased a Windows VPS server from Croatian Web Hosting and monitored it to evaluate their services comprehensively for about a month. During our test, we actually tested their uptime, backup procedures, support skills, load capacity and all other important features.

Please see our research results of their Windows VPS.
