I felt like I had to write a small review about RyleeJames services, I am not an old customer, but for sure I'll become one.
I've bought "Silver VPS" - 10GB HDD, 175GB Bandwidth, HyperVM, 256/512 Guaranteed/Burst Memory, 1 IP Address, Cenos 5.3, everything is clasic. Regular price is $10 + DirectAdmin license = $16/month.
VPS was prepared in around 6 hours after I ordered(I am living in Europe, and he is in USA, so is a different timezone), got all details and started. He asked me what I need to be installed and was done.
But like someone who wants to learn more and more, I started to follow some VPS security tutorials from WHT or on google(I am focused on security and obsessed). But not all tutorials were going well for me. I've broken the VPS 3 times in a month I think: 1st due to some bad commands(not rm -rf /*), 2nd was the apache server and 3rd time was because I've deleted all logs. Everytime I wrote an offline message to his YM and everytime my issues were fully fixed and very quick. Now maybe you're asking how much I paid for these, since my server is unmanaged? do you want to know? Well, $0(zero). Why? Because he is a great man, and understood me.
Now let's talk about performance. DNS was propagated form USA to Europe in 25 minutes(without using hosts file under windows) and worldwide in 2 hours. Most amazing until now, since with most hosts I was waiting for more than 48 hours to become available worldwide.
After a few days I found this thread here on WHT - http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...08055&page=124 , about a benchmarking script for VPS and dedicated servers. I ran it and final score: 234.4. I consider this a great score, because if you read previous posts from that thread you will see that some other VPS from much more famous companies, with much more RAM and better servers has poor scores than mine. Even some dedicated servers have almost same scores like my VPS.
I think here end my review about RyleeJames. Conclusions for those who're in a hurry? RyleeJames is a great VPS hosting provider and not only. I would recommend him all the time, and to anyone who's looking for a cheap and good VPS.
