Features and Ease of Use
BlueVPS offers both Linux and Windows plans. On both platforms, it further offers bKVM, HD-KVM, and SSD-KVM VPS plans. There are also special VPS plans on the Linux platform. In total, it offers twenty-eight plans on its VPS platform. The features of these plans include:
- 99.9% uptime guarantee
- From 7GB to 2TB disk space
- From 5TB to unlimited bandwidth
As stated earlier, its plans are hosted on both Windows and Linux operating systems. The operating system a client chooses depends on which kind of applications they intend to run. While most control panels, software, and modules work on Linux, a few like ASP.NET and MSSQL can only run on Windows server.
BlueVPS uses KVM virtualization whose benefits include the ability to work exactly like a dedicated server. It also offers direct kernel access and the system can be customized to fit specific requirements.
It offers both free and paid selectable control panels that include DirectAdmin, cPanel, ISPmanager, VestaCP, and VirtualMin. These control panels are suitable for accessing every aspect of the hosting account. Furthermore, it supports popular CMS like WordPress, Drupal, Magento, and OpenCart. It also supports frameworks like Node JS, JQuery, Zend, Django, and many others.
If you need to manage your account remotely, BlueVPS offers virtual network computing (VNC) access for that.
The bKVM and HD-KVM plans come with RAID 10 hard disk drives (HDD) while the SSD-KVM uses solid state drives (SSD). SSD caching is also available on these plans and it increases the processing speed of regularly loaded contents.
Pricing and Support
The bKVM and SSD-KVM plans are so cheap, one would think they are shared plans. While the HD-KVM and the special offer plans fall within the range of prices offered in the market. Billing cycles are monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, and annual.
As expected with VPS, there’s no mention of a money-back guarantee, so it’s best you go for the one-month billing option. Also, there’s no free plan or trial to test out the service. BlueVPS accepts payment through WebMoney, Cryptocurrency payment, PayPal, Payeer, Unionpay, QIWI, Yandex Money via Payssion, Alipay, and InterKassa.
BlueVPS client support is available through email, phone, live chat, and ticketing system. I sent an email, but never got a response.
