30 day review – TMZvps.com

Here is my 30 day review of my VM-1024 plan at Tmzvps.com

Product/hardware/price

tmzvps.com has five standard fully managed VPS plans, from 512 MB RAM to 2.5 GB RAM. I used their VM-1024 plan with 1 GB of RAM for my test period. They offer only OpenVZ plan just now, but they have announced that they will start offering KVM servers soon. They are using RAID10 disk setup with really good disk speeds. I got 314 MB/s on my DD test.

I tested their L.A node, and I did get a UnixBench score of 1454. It’s not a very high results, but it’s not a very low score either.

Their price is in the higher range for most of my VPS servers. Around $36/mo for my 1 GB plan. For that price I got 1 GB of RAM, 40 GB HDD, 1500 GB BW and 1 x 2.26 Ghz CPU core. It’s also include a Cpanel license.

Service/Support

tmzvps.com offer fully managed servers (you can get unmanaged also). In their price you get Cpanel/WHM also, and you have to have a control panel if you want their fully managed service.

I did only open one ticket in the period I used their service, and they used 49 minutes to reply on my ticket. That not fast for a fully managed host. Still, since I only opened one ticket, I can’t say what their average support time is.

One good thing is that TmzVPS (user TMZHosting) is very active on Webhostingtalk.com, so if you have any issue, I’m sure you can get a reply there. But it’s of course not their official support channel.

Network/uptime

My server was up 100% in the time I used it, with 1 minutes monitor service from several location. I have not seen any other problems with their network speeds or other.

Conclusion

If you need a fully managed server in US or in UK with Cpanel and OpenVZ technology, Tmzvps.com can be the right host for you. They are highly recommended at Webhostingtalk.com and if you search their offer section, you may find a good offer also.

They do not have the fastest servers I have tested, but still, solid servers backed up with a solid network.
