Conclusion

From the comparison table above, it can be concluded that the winner is Hantamo Free Plan (speed & for high traffic), only one Hantamo Free Plan deficiency is on limited storage that is only: 100MB. The solution is upgrade to the Hantamo Shared Plan (just $3.5/mo), then SSD storage will become Unlimited.

For RumahWeb Rp.25rb/mo Plan, bandwidth specifications (written) is Unlimited, but in reality, in High Traffic Load (2000req/s) connection is ERROR, meaning that is Limited” Unlimited Bandwidth. Unlike Hantamo who really offer True-Unlimited Bandwidth
