OpenstackVPS could be a good choice for cheap virtual servers, but it doesn't do dedicated servers or shared hosting solutions. I'd feel better about this provider if there were sufficient self-support resources, or if I'd been able to summon a pre-sales support response.

Overview

OpenstackVPS

Delaware-based American company OpenstackVPS provides virtual servers to global clients. Thanks to its use of a worldwide 100 Gbit network, the latest Intel Xeon processors, and SSD drives, OpenstackVPS aims to deliver the fastest virtual server services.

This host’s Facebook and Twitter feeds appear to be inaccessible, and its English-language website doesn’t say when it was established. However, it does say that the servers are located in Istanbul and Chicago.

Features and Ease of Use

OpenstackVPS offers 30 VPS plans in total. The 12 standard VPS plans provide you with:

  • 99.95% uptime SLA
  • 1 to 8 vCores
  • 2 GB to 96 GB RAM
  • 40 GB to 360 GB SSD storage
  • 1 TB to 20 TB bandwidth
  • 1 IPv4 address

The control panel allows you to choose your Linux or Windows operating system with a single click. And once your server’s set up within seconds, the full root access will allow you to manage every aspect of your server: upgrade your operating system, add or remove applications, switch off, switch on, or restart your VPS.

From a performance perspective, servers use SSD storage (which is far faster and more reliable than HDD storage), and Intel Xeon processors.

Pricing and Support

The OpenstackVPS virtual servers are inexpensive, and you can pay for them in U.S. dollars via PayPal on monthly or annual billing cycles. Unfortunately, but not unusual for virtual servers, there are no refunds on offer.

Reach out to this company’s customer support team via support ticket (current customers only), email, live chat, or online contact form. Live chat was unavailable when I wanted to try it, and my offline message went unanswered. The lack of a pre-sales support response wouldn’t be so bad if there were sufficient self-support resources, but the knowledge base is bare:
