Time4VPS was launched in 2012 as a division of Interneto Vizija, one of Lithuania's largest web hosts. As the name suggests, its main focus is providing VPS hosting.

So, Is it really "Time4VPS" or, is it more "time to keep looking for another web host"? In this Time4VPS review, that's exactly what we're going to find out. 

Time4VPS Review: First Impressions

You'll notice Time4VPS's two main products are VPS Hosting and VPN. VPS stands for 'Virtual Private Server' and is a shared hosting format that offers similar resource control to a dedicated server. Meanwhile, VPN stands for 'Virtual Private Network' and is a service that protects your identity online.

In my Time4VPS review, I'll focus on its VPS hosting, but it's good to know it offers other digital services too.

The site I hosted with Time4VPS was very reliable. I didn't experience any downtime, validating Time4VPS's 99.95% server uptime claim. My experience with Time4VPS' customer support was positive too. The 24/7 live chat function worked well and the support staff seemed happy to help me.

Unfortunately, Time4VPS isn't suitable for customers based outside of Europe, because it only operates one data center in Lithuania.

Strong Community

I was impressed with the community forum's activity. It's always a good sign when other people engage with a host's product.

Time4VPS Pricing

Time4VPS offers four different styles of VPS hosting:

  • Container VPS from €2.99/month: users share server resources.
  • Linux VPS from €3.99/month: KVM virtualization partitions resources.
  • Windows VPS from €5.99/month: includes Windows server.
  • Storage VPS from €2.99/month: file storage only.

Note that the Container VPS packages are effectively shared hosting plans because they don't fully partition resources. Each VPS type is offered in eight tiers, with Container plans ranging from €2.99/month to $129.99/month.

Pricing in More Detail

As they'll be appropriate for most users, I'll compare example entry and mid-tier Container VPS plans against corresponding Linux VPS packages:

Storage and bandwidth limits are consistent between same-tier Container and Linux VPS plans, but the Linux plans are more expensive. 

Overall, Time4VPS's base plans are affordable: at €2.99/month, the Container-2 VPS plan offers excellent value for 20GB storage. It's extremely disappointing, however, that important add-ons like SSD storage and cPanel software cost extra. Whichever plan you choose, you can save 17% by paying annually. 

Performance

During my Time4VPS review, I tested the site on Bitcatcha and found that Time4VPS delivers perfectly adequate results in North America and Europe, but subpar performance in Asia.

Again - I would not recommend Time4VPS for those outside of Europe.

Final Thoughts

I was impressed with its customer service and the range of different plans it offers.

However, Time4VPS isn't a great money saving option as you have to pay extra for so many important features. Still, thanks to a 30-day money back guarantee, you'll have time4deciding if this service is for you.
