30 day review – GetKVM.com

My first 30 days with GetKVM has gone without any issues, and I do not have much to write. They do deliver their product, and you get great value for your money.

Product/hardware/price

GetKVM.com special in KVM servers. They are a UK based company with servers in Germany. They offer four VPS plan from 256 MB RAM to 2 GB RAM. I use a 512 MB plan called Medium and it comes with 20 GB RAID10 HDD, 750 GB BW and 2 x Intel 3.3 GHz CPU Core(s). My server is pretty fast, with a UnixBench score of 2291. They held the first place for some time on my Top 20 list.

Service/Support

GetKVM offers KVM servers and i think they have a good service. Most of my communication has been at webhostingtalk.com, so really don’t know how fast they reply on sales etc. When I did my benchmark of them, we discovered an issue with one of their nodes. GetKVM got the issue fixed within short time, so they took the problem serious.

What can I say, I ordered, I got my VPS, it was online, and it have not been any issues after that. I have had no reason to rise any support tickets before today. Tried to access my SolusVM control panel, but the server hosting SolusVM was not online, or I could not connect to it. But GetKVM has sent out info that they will have vacation from 07.08 – 21.08, so support ticket can take some time. Still, it’s not a big problem, and I’m sure it will be fixed.

Network/uptime

My server has had 100% uptime my first 30 days. The network seems good.

Benchmark

Read my latest benchmark of my VPS at GetKVM.com

Conclusion

GetKVM is a new company, started this year, but the owner Ashley Hawkridge has owned other brands, like VMPort.com, so he is not new to this game. Their servers is solid with a good network. Their price is good for what you get. I have no problems recommending their service.
