    HostUS.us has posted new holiday deals valid 24 December 2017 - 5 January 2018 or until stocks last. Last year they had excellent holiday deals as you can see here.

    • Centmin Mod affiliate link here which you can visit prior to visiting order links if you feel like supporting Centmin Mod :)
    • Specials link HostUS - Special Holiday Offers - pay attention as some specials only available in certain geographic locations.
    The US/EU Bundle seems to the equivalent of last years $25/yr special but price is higher this year at $49.99/yr as it's a bundle of 2x 2GB OpenVZ VPS so each 2GB OpenVZ VPS is US$25/yr basically just that you're forced to buy 2.

    Picked up the HostUS.us US/EU bundle for 2x 2GB OpenVZ VPS with 2GB/50GB for US$49.99/yr so ~$25/yr each VPS. Choose one in Los Angeles and one in Atlanta seeing as I already have Dallas, London and Washington DC in previous HostUS.us holiday specials last year :)

    Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 Install



    Strangely the default CentOS 7 templates are using different default CentOS versions.

    On Atlanta VPS defaults to CentOS 7.2
    Code (Text):
    cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
    

    On Los Angeles VPS defaults to CentOS 7.0
    Code (Text):
    cat /etc/redhat-release
    CentOS Linux release 7.0.1406 (Core)
    

    So to properly compare speed of both for Centmin Mod beta install, would need to do a yum update first which is part of Centmin Mod official curl one liner recommended method of install.
    Code (Text):
    yum -y update; curl -O https://centminmod.com/betainstaller.sh && chmod 0700 betainstaller.sh && bash betainstaller.sh

    • Atlanta VPS = 1079.0270s
