AccuWebHosting Research Report

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.

Pros:

  • 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.

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.

To test AccuWebHosting's capability of handling Windows VPS, we conducted an extensive research of their Windows VPS plans. We hosted an application on AccuWebHosting Windows VPS's server, tested their load bearing capacity, expertise of their technical team to manage Windows VPS related issues, backup facility, Uptime of their Windows VPS and pre-installed softwares. Please see our research results of their Windows VPS.

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. Then every 5 minutes additional 80 connections were created. So, in the first 10 minutes, there was a stress of 160 active connections.

They offer paid file level 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.

AccuWebHosting Research Report

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.

Pros:

  • 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.

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.

To test AccuWebHosting's capability of handling Windows VPS, we conducted an extensive research of their Windows VPS plans. We hosted an application on AccuWebHosting Windows VPS's server, tested their load bearing capacity, expertise of their technical team to manage Windows VPS related issues, backup facility, Uptime of their Windows VPS and pre-installed softwares. Please see our research results of their Windows VPS.

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.

Our comments

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.
