VPS Brasil sells a range of budget hosting services with support for advanced coding languages. The software versions may be old, but this is a no frills provider, which your wallet will love.

Overview

VPS Brasil-overview1

VPS Brasil, not surprisingly, is located in Brazil and sells VPS packages along with shared hosting. The business has more than six years of experience and the website is available in Portuguese.

Features and Ease of Use

VPS Brasil sells a range of Windows and Linux VPS packages, which come with the following core features:

  • Backups can be manually configured
  • Domain registration available
  • Unlimited monthly data transfer
  • Up to 50GB of disk space
  • Up to 10 MySQL databases

VPS Brasil appears to sell both VPS plans and regular shared hosting. The website’s a bit confusing as the product descriptions seem to describe shared website hosting, but then direct the user to a product page for a VPS plan.

You can choose between Linux or Windows operating systems for both the VPS and shared hosting plans, which is quite flexible. Plus, the plans support PHP (but only version 5), Ruby, Ruby on Rails, and Perl.

There’s a website building tool and also Softaculous one-click installer, which supports popular programs such as phpBB and Magento. The plans come with cPanel access, which is an easy to use control panel for beginners.

If it’s of interest to you, VPS Brasil also sells VPS plans which are specialist Roboforex MetaTrader, so you can rent a VPS configured to run the MT4 with Robot.

Pricing and Support

The shared hosting prices are in line with other providers, while the VPS packages are cheaper than other similar options on the market. In all cases, you’ll need to factor in buying a domain name and SSL certificate.

You can purchase the plans in one, three, six, and 12-month terms, with a minuscule discount for purchasing a longer-term upfront. The home page mentions a money-back guarantee, but it’s not detailed in the terms and conditions, so I’d be cautious.

When you’re checking out, you are given the option to configure the base plan as required e.g., you can add RAM, disk space, monthly traffic, and so on, which is a nice value add.

Customer service is by phone, ticket, email, and live chat 24/7. There are no help documents or manuals, in the event you’d like to research your own solutions. I found it a bit frustrating that the live chat window appeared online, but when I sent a message, it promptly went offline and no-one picked up. In their defense, it was early in the morning in Brazil.
