What is a VPS?

A VPS isa virtual machine sold as a service by an Internet hosting service and runs its copy of an operating system (OS), and customers may have super user-level access to that operating system instance, so they can install almost any software that runs on that OS. Keep note of that as we will need this for reference. In short, VPSes are virtual machines. Which uses the idea of Virtualization. Virtualization, from Wikipedia, is basically: resources are still shared, as, under the time-sharing model, virtualization provides a higher level of security, dependent on the type of virtualization used, as the individual virtual servers are mostly isolated from each other and may run their full-fledged operating system which can be independently rebooted as a virtual instance.

Okay! Give me the choices!

Here you go:

Cheapest Plan If you want a little extra Plan I have the money to afford anything Plan
GalaxyGate $3.00 $5.00 $240.00
DigitalOcean $5.00 $10.00 $1200.00
Hostbend $2.99 $9.00 $65.00

OKAY! Why are you giving us a price table? This is for your price budget. You need to look at your budget or range. Which provider fits the criteria of the budget range.

Cheapest VPS: Hostbend

Hostbend is definitely the cheapest provider. You can host your discord bot or project for $2.99! Personally, Hostbend has pretty quick support, although their UI can be improved.


Best Value: DigitalOcean

Even though DigitalOcean is a bit more costly, it definitely has the best UI, is easiest to use (for example you can create a server with docker already preinstalled!) and you get billed hourly, so there is less commitment (you could just use a server for like 50 mins for free :)).


Runner Up: GalaxyGate

I've used GalaxyGate for a while, and it's very reliable, but you get less!


If you use DigitalOcean, you can get $100 free credit if you use this link!
