High quality VPS provider

Vultr offers various options for your vps needs. I run TF2 servers using Vultr and I had no problems with lag of any sort. Vultr doesn't lock you into a contract so you don't have to make a commitment with your VPS. Vultr allows you to configure your vps to suite your needs from the firewall to the OS that's installed on the VPS.

Great for business hosting

Been with for my corporate sites for a couple years now. Tried them all 1&1, siteground, digital ocean, azure, amazon, linode, and ovh. Vultr is the best, for sites where you are technical and still want a gui.

The new servers, High Frequency Compute are nice and fast, great price, I switched over from the regular cloud ones to this and really think its worth the little bit more in terms of price. Like that you can also get plesk for free for 3 domains, I have the paid one but its so great being able to control your server- unlike places like siteground- where everyday there is a new error or some kind of issue with people connecting to your site, and you cannot fix it yourself but have to talk to support.

If you are shopping for a new host, try them out before putting the site into production, I think you will be happy.

Excellent VPS host

Excellent VPS host, been using for about 3 years now never had a problem, all the complaints below about poor customer service are due to people who cannot grasp the fact that unmanaged means unmanaged, they will not fix problems caused by poor user setup.
The servers are fast and reliable, no noticeable downtime in 3 years.
People who have their accounts closed for reasons like 'Abuse' are actually abusing the network, sending spam, running VPN's to use for torrenting/piracy etc, their own fault 100%

They have loads of different operating systems and apps available for use, more than any other host as far as I can tell.

Just try them, you won't be disappointed, unless you know nothing about Linux and expect them to fix all your problems for you.

Reliable and consistent

Been with them for over two years and never once had a problem with downtime or performance degradation. From my experience their network is fast, their hardware is of good quality and their customer support is responsive. As a business I am reluctant to move anywhere cheaper because this company is very reliable and consistent.

Everything is automated, runs smoothly and is of great value.

Honestly have nothing to complain about. If anything, I love this service.

- Neatly designed control panel with all the features I could want/need: instance summaries, resource usage, backups, DDoS protection on/off, snapshots, DNS, settings (IPv4/IPv6, private networking, rDNS, Firewall, Hostname, Plan, etc.), block storage, etc, etc.
- Custom OSes supported. (Upload your own ISO.)
- KVM style console access to your VM. Love this. Essential for custom OS installation but also very handy if your VM loses internet access (misconfiguration/other) and you need to bring it back up.
- VMs are quick and easy to deploy.
- Everything runs like clockwork.
- IRC bouncers allowed.
- Good value.
- Charged by the hour.

I love that last feature. If you mess something up in your VM, with a lot of the other hosts you got to start over and pay another overlapping monthly fee. Not with Vultr. I messed up my custom OS install, deleted the instance and re-installed. Only lost a few cents, not a whole month's worth of fees (~$25). ** I'm not encouraging carelessness but that it's good to have peace of mind of knowing you won't lose a lot of money for a mistake that requires redeployment of an instance.

Been using Vultr for a few years now. Have not really had much trouble and what I have had was fixed fairly quickly. This is a DIY setup, so you are responsible for your setup and I understood and architected my solution around that. Have only had a couple of minor down times, nothing more than expected. The setup is pretty easy and getting a new server online is very fast. The only downside right now is that their block storage is not available in Dallas, hopefully that will change soon.

Hey! If you are reading this is probably because you are trying to get into VPS, Dedicated or other kinda servers. Vultr is a great place to order a dedicated server. I have one there myself. My server is setup with free DDoS protection and it got a running Exile Arma 3 server running 24/7 on it. I have NEVER experienced any downtime or lag. I will recommend this 100% for a stable and cheap dedicated server.

We got throttled after a week of usage on their biggest instance. Here was there message:

Greetings,

"We have set resource limits on the VPS subscription at xxx.x.x.xx due to multiple occasions of high resource utilization that were impacting the performance for other customers on the same host node. If you need to make extensive use of the host CPU, disk, and/or network resources, please consider using our dedicated (VDC) or bare metal products. These alternatives would avoid affecting the performance of other customer's activities.

You may petition to have these limits removed by maintaining consistently lower utilization for one week and then replying to this ticket.

Thank you for understanding."

So, i registred second account, transferred my money from other credit card and what your thinking?... "Your account is been closed", after couple days. Again.

The servers are very powerful but their support is terrible. An unmanaged host is required to provide working hardware and network connectivity.

The IP loss has happened so many times now that I have to move to another host.

What a horrible scammy company.
I joined with their massively advertised campaign of free 50$ credits to try the service.
Not 3 days go by and the credits suddenly disappear from my account for no reason, and I have a debt of 5$ to them.
But wait, that's not even the absurd part - They actually sent me a notification email that said I must fill a ridiculous form with all of my most personal and private details, AND send them a copy of my ID. They also stated that if I won't comply within 24 hours they will charge my credit card 75$ to cover my balance's debt. Really? 75$ for a 5$ debt? nice one.

Been waiting for a day now for them to reply, hopefully they will do the right thing and delete my account and my credit card information.

Stay away from them like fire. Bad service, managing themselves like a scam, you won't be able to delete your credit card details once you put it in.

4 Times in the past week the "Node" has had problems, this has caused my website to be offline until they fix the problem and when I have access to my computer to restart the VPS. Contacted support, which did nothing. And happened again 2 days later.

When upgrading my VPS, it had a Centos error, which they said is common when upgrading and had the cheek for me to follow a 10 step guide to fix it. No point upgrading, it's easier just to leave. Much better on the market at a cheaper price.

I knew their support was god awful but this is on a whole other level

I knew their support was god awful before coming in. But hey! I don't need support because I'm a professional sysadmin! So I went with that.

First sour experience: ISO installation is an all around poor experience. Avoided it as much as I can. I feel like I boot a server into raw RAM easier than booting an ISO. But whatever, I rarely need anything more than vanilla ubuntu. So it's okay.

Second sour experience: When boot up a server, you're playing the roulette. 50% of the time your server is will be slow af. Can be dealt with multiple attempts. Annoying but manageable.

Now, if that were it I would give it maybe 3 or even 4 stars as all issues are possible to deal with without having to deal with Vultr Support (Which is an oxymoron).

BUT!

I was running a heavy processing script on a dedicated instance for which I paid 60$/month. Vultr decided to violently shut it down because they THOUGHT that was my instance was compromised and doing DoS attacks, which was not the case.

At first I explained the situation, waiting a day and resumed operations. Then they shut it down AGAIN, this time CORRUPTING THE DISK! Worse yet, it was done by their system administrator (Joshua Brand). The inhouse system administrator is incompetent. What does this say about the company? I was able to save the day with fsck.

I lost time, I lost money and I have lost my patience with vultr. AVOID!

Terminated services without prior notification

I was a happy customer for 1 year then one day they terminated my VPS completely because of a temporary 80% CPU load spike. Really, what? They advertise KVM VPS's with dedicated resources? Far from being true. Sent tickets to ask for a reactivation but they had already completely deleted the VPS, all data lost and fortunately I had a local backup, 1 month old though. Either do not trust them or if you use them keep frequent backups.
