Black Friday 2019 best VPS under 7 bucks

edited November 28 in Reviews

I have been watching the BF2019 deals with interest and I guess I will put together in one thread the value assessments I am doing this period to see who gives the best value for the least money. I am selectively choosing only those VPS I think have a shot at winning and must be from reliable providers (else I won't have time for anything else).

The current standing:

  1. UltraVPS.eu SAS-Special-1 (LEBRE score: 281)
  2. HostDoc Dallas Dual Compute (LEBRE score: 194)

    Silly me.

    Don't worry Ant has some coming at https://inceptionhosting.com/limited-offers.html

    7 a year can get you something but not sure how useful it will be. Best value, not absolutely cheap and not useable

  • Thought the title means $7/year. D;

    It's probably going to be €7(at best $7 if top advertising word is right), so strictly not under $7/year.
    Still, assuming it's the 100GB+IPv4 plan at the price of €7, would be a deal too good to pass.

  • Php-friends is still doable at EUR 4,95 including VAT (cheaper with non EU)

    relentless collector of highest clocked, highest performing KVM/NVMe/Gbit VPSes at the most competitive rates. just to hard idle them. zero knowledge on coding/programming; a mere hobbyist.

    yes, but unfortunately not very competitive this time.. at that price point might as well do hostdoc or UltraVPS.eu.. if they offered higher RAM or more vCPU, that would be difficult to resist

    Edit : in addition to the ultravps SAS,

    I personally like the liteserver 3 Eur storage HDD.
    1 E3 vCPU, 1GBram, 0.5 TB raid10 disk, 6TB transfer.

    Considering additional IP costs on Hetzner, I'd rather move seafile /nextcloud to something like this, from the dedi.

    These days as a pure storage hog I find that offer kind of meh, but Liteserver is a good host.

    Looks like the usual BF cpusteal is acting up.
    Wait 7 days before checking again.

    Not familiar with Liteserver. Your expert opinion, please. I would like to know if it is another solid provider.

    Thanked by liteserver
  • SOLID and FRIENDLY.
    That's just icing on a beefy infrastructure cake.

  • Liteserver is solid.

  • I have less need for EU VPSes nowadays, but in the past had only good experiences with LiteServer. Excellent support.

    +1 for @liteserver. I trust them with my main VPN box for over 4 years now.

    got this from @SpeedTest:

    Switzerland

    Linux SSD VPS - тарифный план Lite (CH) (45 с быстрой установкой) -
    Платформа: KVM
    Процессор: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2697 v3 2.6 GHz
    Память: 1 GB
    Диск: 20 GB SSD (RAID 10)
    Трафик: Не учитывается
    Порт: 1000 Mbit
    IP: 1 шт. (возможен дозаказ) + IPv6 по запросу

    https://cp.inferno.name/cart.php?gid=55

    50% off recurring with BF2019VPS

    so you end up paying $2.50/month or $30/year

    I dont know about the provider, but for Swiss, its damn cheap

    The thing is that you've become a true storage aficionado, whereas most of the rest of us have much more modest storage needs :)

    Edit: And, of course, this is a KVM from LiteServer (and not some OVZ where you're not allowed to do apt dist-upgrade) ;)

    Yeah, I also find the PHP-Friends offer to be excellent -- one needs to look a bit beyond the simple specs of the VPS.

    Still debating whether to get it ... :)

  • 6 months contract / billing period (-> 29,70 EUR recurring). The VAT is now removed automatically for non-EU citizens, without VAT the recurring price is 24,96 EUR.

    Like our regular offers & specials we only use "real" server hardware with redundant power supplies and redundant network in the First Colo datacenter in Frankfurt (FFM). Of course our DDoS protection is included for free :)

  • That's the first one that has my finger hovering over the buy button. I think I've been spoiled in previous years where I've got 4GB+ ram, 40-100GB disk for ~$20.
