VPS.NET’s network of Tier III data centers spans five continents to provide fast website loading times for users all around the world. The SSD VPS hosting plans have access to 13 of these data centers whereas the Cloud VPS plans use all 24. The data centers have these characteristics:

Pricing and Support
VPS.NET’s hosting plans come at competitive prices compared with top international VPS providers. The entry-level SSD VPS plan costs about the same as a few cups of coffee per month, and its 1 TB of monthly bandwidth is higher than you’ll get for this price from many competitors. You can easily upgrade or downgrade your current plan.
You can pay for plans on a monthly basis, with no contract, via PayPal or credit/debit card. For an additional fee, you can select an operating system and add server monitoring, or monitoring plus configuration.
