VestaCP Tools Plugin

I have created a little plugin for VestaCP called the VestaCP Tools Plugin (obviously unofficial as they don’t have any official way to create plugins yet). It’s a super simple way to get an overview of what’s going on inside your VestaCP server. It basically lists all the domain names, mail domains, cron jobs, etc globally so you don’t have to login to each individual user to get the data.

RootNerds / IAMONSYS Review

rootnerdslogoI thought I would tell you all to stay away from RootNerds / IAMONSYS. This is my review. They’re the same company and rumoured to be sold. An unfortunate event happened yesterday on the 7th June whereby one of my Virtual Private Servers I had with them in Germany went offline. It’s still offline as I write this (20 houriamonsys_logo_500pxs + offline) and I imagine the company has now completely shut down without a single word to me or it’s other clients.

Review: Reliable VestaCP VPS hosting with HostUS

HostUS VPS LogoThis is a review of HostUS‘s (affiliate links within this post) unmanaged Virtual Private Servers (VPS) where I have installed the control panel VestaCP.

I have a few VPS’s with HostUS namely because they are international. This blog is hosted on a VPS they provide in England. I have been with them since February 2015. It’s been over a year so I think I’m well informed to provide a review that is of my own opinion.

UPDATE: After almost 2 years of hosting with HostUS I have pulled the plug on 6 servers I had with them. Recently they had terrible slow nodes and very slow response times to support requests (when the nodes were slow). Read more for the in-depth review.
