Finding VPS


  • Banned

    Finding VPS is a thing i'm doing for past few days and cannot succeed at all
    So can you advise me some?

    What requirements are you looking for? Buget constraints? What part of the globe would you like it to be in?

    Seems like a really odd place to ask such a question for a 1 post wonder.. There are hundreds if not 1000's of forums where primary focus is hosting and vps, etc.

    Your post seems fishy - like come back later and say oh found a great vps host..

    Indeed. I bet it's only a matter of time before we see a spammy affiliate link pop up.

    That said, if they are truly asking, DigitalOcean is tough to beat on price/value for what you get in terms of cpu/ram/disk/throughput.



  • I use Digital Ocean, they have really detailed tutorials for different packages. I don't think they offer a pfsense image at the moment. Base price is $5/month.

    I have also setup a Vultr VPS ($2.50/month - which is probably below recommended spec) with their pfsense image for testing. This (2.4) didn't work properly initially , so I used the older (2.3) image and performed the GUI upgrade to get a stable (remote) installation of pfsense 2.4.

    Linode is also mentioned along with these other two, for entry-level VPS. I'm not technically competent enough to compare the relative merits or performance of each.

    I'm guessing that referral links are banned in these posts, but you can get a 'credit' for some of these services by signing up with another user's referral code.

    I'm not going to post mine, but there are a couple of really good (beginner) tutorials or reviews online, with a link. If you find a good tutorial, thank them by using their link.

    You can find cheaper options, but the consensus seems to be that these are not worth the effort?

    @johnpoz @jimp I'm guessing that the OP was overloaded with too much choice, and wanted a reliable recommendation (for pfsense?) - not sure if Vultr is 'reliable' in that sense, but I am able to test pfsense with a couple of options away from my production environment.

    Yeah doubt that... He just posted some link in a 9 month old Swedish thread speaking english.. Clearly he is a spammer.
