    * controlvm.com - initial review

    I ordered a VPS, for a personal project, with controlvm.com in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

    The order went fine, but my autocomplete wrote my old phone number and they use phone verification to prove that an order is not fraud. I'm ordering from Germany. After I noticed that the order was set as fraud, i tried to open a support ticket, but their website blocked my IP (I was still able to browse via proxy).
    I opened a support ticket which was answered in about 15 minutes, even if the local time was 7AM. They fixed my phone number, did the order again and I got the server after couple of minutes.

    I tried to reinstall the OS, couple of times (Debian 7 x64), but the VM is not coming up afterwards. I opened a support ticket minutes ago and now I wait...

    I'll come back with details.

    Support was fast as billing, my machine is up with Debian 7 now. I'll report myself to be trusted.

    VPS tests:

    Speed is advertised as 2mbps which should give me 250kbytes/s, so the 352 is more than that.

    Only 2 mb port is very slow.
    Failure is success if we learn from it.

    Bandwidth in Asia is very expensive, roughly 10 times than in Europe or America.

    Yes or no, depends on your applications.
    However, you can easily upgrade to higher bandwidth at anytime, just a matter of $$ otherwise, you can look at our high bandwidth VPS in Singapore.

    used to be controlvm's client, they are good in overall performance.
    Server are stable, not much problem with them. but due to my project completed, now no longer with any host. In future probably will try them again.
