As its name suggests, Las Vegas-based VPSCheap.net offers cheap VPS solutions. They come with a good range of features, but I've seen some customer reports of unstable performance.

Overview

VPSCheap.netIf you are in a hurry, and just want the bottom line: for the same price as VPSCheap.net you can get much better servers with 24/7 support with Hostinger, so why even bother?!

VPSCheap.net first entered the hosting market in mid-2010 to provide high-quality, low-cost Linux and Windows VPS hosting solutions with excellent uptime. This vendor is located in Las Vegas and has data centers in Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas.

The VPSCheap.net website is full of information in English.

We actually interviewed an executive at VPSCheap.net, and here’s what we learned.

Features and Ease of Use

VPSCheap.net doesn’t do shared or cloud hosting; it focuses on VPS services. You can expect the following features from its VPS packages:

  • Full root access
  • cPanel with a software auto-installer
  • SSD storage
  • IPv6 support
  • Unlimited bandwidth

The cPanel control panel (available as an add-on) comes with a software auto-installer, plus a file manager and backup features. All VPSCheap.net’s packages include a built-in DNS management tool that gives you complete control of your domains. You also get full root access so you can install and run any apps you choose, including WordPress, phpBB, Joomla, Magento, and more. Unfortunately, you don’t get a CDN.

All VPSCheap.net’s servers are built on Intel Xeon servers with dedicated ECC RAM and fast RAID storage to deliver optimum performance. The downside is that VPSCheap.net seems to suffer from frequent downtime due to unstable servers, according to some customer reports.

Pricing and Support

Without a doubt, VPSCheap.net’s strongest point is its pricing. It offers a total of fifteen different VPS hosting packages, categorized according to the type of server: SSD, NVMe, or HDD. The five plansBasic, Business, Premium, Advanced, and Enterprise – vary in terms of storage, RAM, CPU, and IP addresses (both IPv4 and IPv6).

While the Basic packages are only available on annual subscriptions, the other packages are available on shorter monthly contracts. New customers get a 30-day money-back guarantee, and you can pay by PayPal, credit card, or Bitcoin.

This provider’s support channels include live chat (for existing customers), ticket, and toll-free telephone. I found the support staff to be very responsive and knowledgeable:

For self-support, there are some tutorials, a blog, and a very good F.A.Q. section.

How much does VPSCheap.net cost?
VPSCheap.net offers plans from $2 to $28. The price depends on which type of hosting plan you choose. You can see the updated pricing table (updated weekly) below.
Which VPSCheap.net plan should I get?
My recommendation is to start with a cheaper plan. You can always upgrade later on. VPSCheap.net can help you with the migration to a more expensive plan. The increase in visitors many times takes longer than expected and you shouldn’t pay a lot of money until the need arises. Of course, your needs may vary, and you can consult with a hosting expert from VPSCheap.net here.
How good is VPSCheap.net’s customer support?
VPSCheap.net is not ranked as one of our top web hosts. But that can also be a result of VPSCheap.net being a small, under the radar, hosting provider. There are advantages to a small hosting company – as a customer, you are more important to them. You can also check out our comparison of the most popular web hosting services here.

DO NOT USE!!!

Absolutely terrible servers, constantly down, not worth it if it was free. I am still having nightmares as I am still paid up for a few more months. They automatically shut down your server with a simple wordpress install running woocommerce saying that resource usage is too high, on their 8GB server, it cannot run a simple woocommerce site that is still in construction without products and not doing anything??? They do not provide hosting, they provide a way to throw away your money. Rather go gamble, you'll have a much higher online presence and more of a chance of a return doing that.

THIEF THIEF

The worst service of all industries, we will need to reboot your service 3 times a week by your self if you have alot of visit on the IP. They lies about everythings, they are not competent at all. Find another Host if you need something more reliable. Pay extra buck to get better services and better VPS, anywhere else.

Worst of the worst

This is the worst company I have ever dealt with . There servers are trash they keep going offline. And I am unable to install simple programs like php on there trash servers. They refuse to refund. I am calling my credit card company and filing a charge back.

Should be name VPSCheat instead

We ordered a VPS. Within hours, before we could even use it, they took it offline without intimation. Upon asking, they mentioned 'Your server is getting stopped due to it causing high load on the node.' Their control panel says 0% Bandwidth used and 0% HDD used and they didn't send any CPU usage log. We didn't even start to use it at all. Their management refused to issue refund through paypal and instead issued 'an internal credit towards future purchases' although their website clearly promotes 30 days money back guarantee. Image at https://www.dropbox.com/s/ud0k6ij5p5iufvq/vpscheap.png?dl=0 clearly shows 0% HDD and 0% bandwidth used.

RUN AWAY

Yeah, avoid this company. They don't compensate for multiple outages. They lie about outage reasons. They never find a problem with their systems even when you send in screenshots of down VMs. They will steal your money if you try to cancel and ask for a refund of the outstanding balanace.

AWFUL TO THE EXTEND RUN AWAY

The worst hosting i ever seen . Well their cheap means 99% downtown and 1% uptime . meaning your server will be down just days later after your payment has been sent . I mean all the time and their customer service is really a headache . They say it's unmanaged but hey you will need them because the servers they provide looks like some old machine so so slow it goes offline every minute you try to reboot . REAL HEADACHE . DON'T EVEN LOOK AT THEIR WEBSITE

Bottom line on VPSCheap.net

For a hosting provider run by a team with more than 30 years of combined experience, I honestly expected more from VPSCheap.net. Although the VPS plans are as cheap as the name suggests, you may pay the price in terms of interrupted service.

Before you make a decision, we highly recommend you check out some alternative hosting companies, which we highly recommend.

Pros

  • Full root access
  • Low prices
  • SSD, HDD, and NVMe VPS servers

Cons

  • Unstable performance
  • Limited support
