    [BENCHMARK] Top Hosting Providers VPS [UPDATE 07/16]

    Hello Forumweb.hosting !

    With many the new offers in VPS Hosting this year, it could be hard to know what is the best for you.
    So I have run some benchmarks to make it clear and you will be able to choose the right VPS.

    Before showing you the results, I have to explain how I have made this benchmark.
    All the tests have been realized with a medium VPS with Ubuntu 16.04 64Bits.

    From a clean install I have only install php7, unzip and python.

    1) Benchmark with PHPBench


    The easiest benchmark to do. You just have to upload it to your web hosting and to access it from your browser. Example mydomain.com/bench.php

    2) SpeedTest CLI

    You will need an SSH access to run it, but it will take only few minutes.

    Code:
    apt-get install -y python git
    git clone https://github.com/sivel/speedtest-cli.git
    python speedtest-cli/setup.py install
    cd speedtest-cli
    python ./speedtest_cli.py
    3) MultiBenchmark.

    Another very simple benchmark to run, as you have only one line to enter using SSH.

    Code:
    bash <(wget --no-check-certificate -O - https://raw.github.com/mgutz/vpsbench/master/vpsbench)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So I'm sure you want to know the results. I haven't sorted them because it depend on what you want. Some have more CPU, and other more bandwidth or better SSD. But all those VPS Hosting are good to run your website.

    1) OVH Public Cloud. VPS SSD - 1vCore / 4GB RAM / 20GB SSD - $6/Mo

    If you have a VPS Hosting you want to test. Feel free to run this benchmark and to send me the results.
    If needed I can run the test on your VPS, it will take only few minutes.
    Theses benchmarks should help you to choose, but they are only indicative as each webhosting company offer or not services with it.

    UPDATE 02/07/2016 : Linode Benchmark added

    I tried DO package - Ocean Digital Droplet - 1vCore / 1GB RAM / 30GB SSD - 10$/mo

    I can say its speed is pretty slow for real site or just average

    Unless you integrate a CDN on your site then your speed can be improved but no more.

    I'm also considering to check Vultr and OVH but if not sure it's a fast VPS with 1vCore

    If I need fast loading, should I choose CPU with 2vCore or 4+ vCore??

    No you don't need a lot of cpu for a fast web server. Only to have good ssd, and to install only what is needed for running. Only the SSD speed and how much you can use the RAM to store cache will have a real impact on performance.

    Ocean Digital is not bad at all but more developer oriented. If you need a VPS for hosting, you don"t need to pay hourly.

    @Marc A

    To start you can try with Scaleway as they have many oneclick install apps you can use, and as cheap as possible.

    I don't think SSD helps more for a fast server. Of course it helps improving loading speed of the server but CPUs play important role in this, unless you install a caching system or integrate CDN then it can improve a bit more the speed of hosting .

    This is my current server resources usage with 54 websites running on it included 40+ Wordpress, 2phpbb, 1 magento, 2 prestashop, 1 owncloud, 1 piwik , I never use more than 2% of my CPU. And I use the gzip compression in the max level 9. And most of my wordpress don't use a cache system.
    You can run a website with an ARM and load your page faster than someone with a dedicated and cPanel.

    How many CPUs do you have for this your hosting package?

    I enabled Gzip on cPanel but how to reach out to level 9? does it require a configuration?

    Digital Ocean is better for CPU performance, scaleway has already several good apps and a very good network.
    But scaleway is 2-3x times less expensive ...

    It's just a choice ^^

    I used Digital Ocean but it was slow on my sites

    Maybe I choose the cloud package with 1 vCore so it's reason why my websites load slowly, right?

    For pricing, DO is also not cheap if we compare it with other VPS companies. $10 for 1 GB RAM, $20 for 20 GB of RAM...it is easy to find a package with same price on forums.

    Yes but they were the first to offer one-click apps and they still have most choice than others companies. After yes DO are expensive if you use for web hosting.
