Vultr is a specialist cloud hosting provider that prides itself on its high-performance edge services and its easy scalability. It offers everything from cloud computing and block storage to bare metal and dedicated servers. You can take your pick of 16 different server locations across the world.
Founded back in 2014, Vultr has gone from strength to strength over the last five years. It’s grown to a team of over 50 engineers and developers, with more than 22 million cloud server instances and 100,000+ customers from 150 countries. Not bad!
It also wins brownie points from me because unlike DigitalOcean, which I recently reviewed, it’s not exclusively developer-focused. This means the website is easier to navigate, the jargon is less-techy, and the hosting plans are much faster to get started with.
But does Vultr live up to its promises of high performance and easy deployment? And is the service it provides worth the premium price it charges? More to the point, is it the right web host for you?
Let’s jump on in and take a closer look at Vultr to see whether its powerful hosting plans and easy-to-use interface manage to strike the right balance between functionality and simplicity.
