Introducing BandwagonHost

bandwagonhost-vps

BandwagonHost is a sub-brand launched by Canadian Company IT7 Networks in 2012. IT7 has been focusing on web hosting services since its establishment in 2004.

There are high-end VPS brands VPSBlast and XVMLabs (has been discontinued), and NodeWatch is also a service of IT7 Networks.

Now BandwagonHost only offers KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) plan and all their VPS service is running on KiwiVM, a secure control panel developed in-house. It allows to perform all basic management tasks: start/stop, OS reload, Emergency console, rDNS (PTR) record management, datacenter migration, snapshots, usage statistics, API etc.

For affordable prices (starting at $49.99/yr), you can get a 2Core/1GB/20GB high performance VPS. And you can migrate it in up to 12 different global datacenters free without limit (only costs bandwith equal to your disk space).

And more importantly, all VPS hosting plans include Free Snapshots (2 sticky for all time and others stored for 30 days) and Automatic Backups.

Selected plans

BandwagonHost service is self-managed, this allows them to keep the price down. It also means they do not provide much support for anything not related to the uptime and hardware problem.

All plans come with Intel E5 Xeon processors, Raid 10 SSD, full root access and 30-day no questions asked money back guarantee (Check their ToS for the detail).

There are some selected plans as follows (Check all plans here). All prices are original and you can try the latest BandwagonHost Coupon & Promo Code for 6.58% recurring discount: BWH3HYATVBJW

If you are work in China or you have many Chinese customers. I recommend to choose a LOS ANGELES - CN2 GIA ECOMMERCE or HONG KONG CN2 GIA plan. China Telecom CN2 GIA (AS4809) routing is the best connectivity to/from China at present. And with these plans you can unlock all 12 datacenters to migrate at KiwiVM control panel.

There is a speedtest to Mainland China of LOS ANGELES - CN2 GIA ECOMMERCE plan. As you can see, the network speed is awesome while you can only get less than 50Mbps and high packet loss rate with unoptimazed routing (AS4134).
