This page was updated with new data on August 14 2019.
We have tested 9 VPS plans from 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime. This page is a summary and comparison of all test results for those 2 providers.
|Plan Name||Monthly Price||CPU cores||Memory (GB)||Disk Space (GB)||Data Transfer (GB)||Latest trial|
|6GB $7||$7.00||4||6.0||30||2000||Sep 23 2018|
|Cloud Server M||$10.00||1||1.0||50||10000||Feb 13 2019|
|6GB 4cores 3.3GHz||$12.00||4||6.0||30||2000||Jul 29 2019|
|12GB $14 Virtuozzo||$14.00||4||12.0||60||4000||Feb 27 2019|
|Premium 4GB||$20.00||1||4.0||60||2000||May 10 2019|
|Cloud Server L||$20.00||2||2.0||80||9999||Nov 19 2018|
|Cloud Server XL||$30.00||2||4.0||120||9999||Apr 10 2019|
|Premium 8GB||$40.00||2||8.0||120||4000||Dec 12 2018|
|Cloud Server XXL||$60.00||4||8.0||160||9999||Jun 24 2019|
To summarize the performance of each VPS plan, we generated grades based on the various tests that were run: web, sysbench, endurance and remote timing tests. Each grade focuses on one aspect of the VPS speed or stability (cpu, disk IO, network IO...) and is made of one or more metrics measured during the tests.
Grades are evenly distributed between A and F. A is best, F is worst.
Follow the letter links to find the test results backing the grade.
|Plan Name||Web Perf||Raw CPU Power||Perf Stability||Disk IO Perf||Network Perf|
Cloud Server M
6GB 4cores 3.3GHz
12GB $14 Virtuozzo
Cloud Server L
Cloud Server XL
Cloud Server XXL
This is the average time it took to create an instance for 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime from instance order to instance accepting connections.
|Number of instance creations in sample||4||5|
|Provisioning time in seconds||357s||576s|
The grades above are based on the following test results.
We ran a database intensive web application with ~100,000 hits per day for several days on cloud servers from 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime. This is the average response time measured locally on the VPS for each plan we tested.
Local Response Time per Plan
Lower is better
During the Web Test, we collect response time metrics, CPU metrics and database performance metrics. All of those are measured locally on the VPS running the web server. All metrics can be compared on the Web Performance Comparison page.
We ran the full suite of Sysbench tests on VPS plans of 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime. These are the Sysbench CPU test results:
Rate of operations
Higher is better
Sysbench test results are also available for random disk IO tests, sequential disk IO tests and memory tests.
Review and compare all Sysbench numbers on the Sysbench Comparison page for 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime.
During the entire duration of the web performance test, we collected web response times from 5 different locations in the world. The chart below reports the connection establishment time + TLS handshake latency from all 5 locations. (That excludes the time spent on the server that is already measured in web response times above and it also excludes the DNS resolution time since it is not dependent on the provider).
Remote Latency per Plan
Lower is better
|Provider||Plan||Average remote request duration|
|Vpsdime||6GB 4cores 3.3GHz||323.2ms|
|Vpsdime||12GB $14 Virtuozzo||321.4ms|
|1and1||Cloud Server M||517.2ms|
|1and1||Cloud Server L||506.8ms|
|1and1||Cloud Server XL||412.8ms|
|1and1||Cloud Server XXL||402.2ms|
We have performed large file transfers from the 1and1 IONOS and Vpsdime VPS and we measured the speed of downloads and uploads.
The transfers involve multiple files, 10 threads and last for at least 10 seconds at maximum speed. The transfers are repeated 3 times from different servers and only the fastest transfer is reported here.
Download Speed per Plan
Higher is better
|Provider||Plan||Network Download Speed|
|Vpsdime||6GB 4cores 3.3GHz||1068.4Mbps|
|Vpsdime||12GB $14 Virtuozzo||1403.7Mbps|
|1and1||Cloud Server M||381.3Mbps|
|1and1||Cloud Server L||390.3Mbps|
|1and1||Cloud Server XL||257.8Mbps|
|1and1||Cloud Server XXL||289.4Mbps|
We pushed the CPU of those VPS plans hard for 24 hours straight.
This test shows how fast the VPS can go for long periods of time, how stable the performance is and it also gives clues on how overallocated the VPSs may be.
Average number of operations per hour
Higher is better
Features not included in the VPS price of the plan will be marked as missing but they may be available for the fee.
