We are happy to announce a new datacenter in the Netherlands which is one hop away from LINX Juniper LAN, AMS-IX, NL-IX, DE-CIX and few other Internet Exchange points.
You can now deploy your SSD VPS server in Amsterdam by logging into your Vpsie control panel and choose “Amsterdam” location with your new VPSie.
Join now, add valid billing information (you will not be charged) and redeem your 5$ free credit and fire up a VPS in Amsterdam.
For those of you who want to see some latency numbers, here are some ping statistics in few major websites:
# ping -f -c 100 188.8.131.52 PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11) 56(84) bytes of data. --- 18.104.22.168 ping statistics --- 100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 263ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 2.356/2.539/2.959/0.119 ms, ipg/ewma 2.663/2.543 ms # ping -f -c 100 google.com PING google.com (22.214.171.124) 56(84) bytes of data. --- google.com ping statistics --- 100 packets transmitted, 100 received, 0% packet loss, time 981ms rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 9.568/9.781/10.022/0.085 ms, pipe 2, ipg/ewma 9.915/9.812 ms
What is the benefit of having a VPS server close to Europe’s largest Internet Exchange Points ?
Internet Exchange Points are big Layer 2 networks (LANs) where many organizations (Enterprises as well as Internet Service Providers) peer with each other so that traffic from one organization to the other passes directly, not via intermediaries. This reduces the number of hops, latency as well as costs.
The main benefit for DNS, Web, Mail and other services running on VPS servers connected in Internet Exchange Points is the reduced latency which translates into improved user experience, as well as better protection against internet attacks.
We are available on chat to answer any questions.
P.S.: 32 IPv6 addresses are available standard.
