I have hosted with Spartan Host on VPS hosting for almost a year. Very satisfied with the service I’ve gotten. And I migrated all my websites to Spartan Host a few months ago, whether it’s stability or speed, so far so great.

I think I will keep using Spartan Host for my websites as long as they are still providing services. So I’m very happy to recommend Spartan Host to you.

1. About Spartan Host

Spartan Host,was founded in May 2013, they provided Minecraft Servers at first but have grown the services they offer since then to include Web Hosting, VPS, Dedicated Servers and Colocation.

They provide Minecraft Server in 4 locations: Phoenix, London, Seattle and Lenoir. Dedicated Server, VPS and Colocation are only based in Seattle (Wowrack’s South Seattle data centre) and Dallas (Psychz’s Carrier-1 suite). Check the details about datacenters.

2. Advantages

Amazing support

The most impressive thing is the quality of their service, very fast and helpful. Usually your question will be answered within an hour, it looks like they are always available for support.

Minecraft Server

If you are looking for a Minecraft Server, Spartan Host’s Minecraft Plan is a good choice. They also provide a free 2 day trial to ensure that meet your needs.

High Performance

Spartan Host provides powerful Intel E3/E5 CPU and AMD Ryzen CPU plans in Seattle, NVMe SSDs in raid 1 or 10. some YABS tests here:

Seattle E5 2048MB Plan:

spartanhost-e5-bench

Seattle AMD 1024MB Plan:

spartanhost-amd-bench

As you can see, CPU performance are good especially AMD Ryzen plan. NVMe SSD’s read/write speed is super fast whether with 4k or 512k block size. The performance is good enough to host your amazing websites.

Fast Network

Intel E5/AMD Ryzen plans have 10Gb/s network port that is great. Even if you can’t run the full uplink, because it’s shared, but the burst speed is still very fast. There is an iperf3 speed test with Seattle AMD 1024MB Plan:

3. Disadvantages

It’s hard to find a disadvantage from Spartan Host but I will try to do it.

I did experience two downtimes in the past year. One server down and rebooted, one network outage, but it didn’t last long, maybe ten minutes and came back. Their response is very fast, so I am not worried about this problem.

I kown this is not a disadvantage but I still have a little complaint that most plans are out of stock most time in the past year. It’s not their fault but because of CoVID-19 and it’s hard to get hardware for the servers. They optimized the route to China at the beginning of 2021 and brought a lot of demand from Chinese customers, which is also a reason. But this is also an advantage if you have business in China.

4. Summary and Advice
