OpenVZ.ca (Media Hosts) Initial Review

A great review posted by one of our new customers on Web Hosting Talk:

New user, long time lurker. I don’t normally post reviews, but these guys blew me away. I switched to OpenVZ.ca (which is actually Media Hosts) recently due to their amazing VPS plans. They are located in Montreal at one of Netelligent’s data centres. Having never heard of them before I figured for the low cost, if the service was terrible I was only out a few dollars.

I purchased the $5/month “Small” VPS package, which has 15GB storage with 128MB RAM burstable to 256. I added on additional RAM and now have 512MB burst to 1GIG.

Initial setup was fast and painless. I was transferring my domain over as well and there were some problems with my previous host and Enom which dragged out for 2 days. Joseph from Media Hosts kept in touch with me the whole time, responding to updates to the ticket within minutes (I’ll admit, I was impatient) and in the end provided me with some advice for my previous host to expedite the transfer and work around their issues with Enom. Media Host’s support is nothing short of excellent.

Not much to say about the service itself (which is a good thing!), the VPS is very snappy and I’ve had no performance issues whatsoever. I’m well versed in Linux and everything is working fine as far as the service goes.

I’ve only been a customer for 3 days, however I will say they’ve impressed me a lot so far. I’ll update in a few months time when I’ve been using it for awhile.

  1. Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard
    work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
