I guess it depends on what one considers a budget vps.

The current offerings are created with services from buyvm.net and racknerd.com

I'm always on the hunt for a good deal - especially cheap yearly options with high storage and good amount of ram. I recently picked up a flash sale from georgedatacenter.com

My current services include (in no particular order)
  • BuyVM.net
  • Racknerd.com
  • Georgedatacenter.com

Services I've used in the past that I'd recommend:
  • Gullos.me
  • GreenCloudVPS.com

Flash sales and deals I've looked very hard at recently:

@xdude  Nice to see you around buddy.  I probably don't have to mention this as it's elementary knowledge but I'd check through offers at LowEndTalk as well.  What's nice there is guys usually review them at the same time and one can pretty much pick up when the offer is unsound.

I just found this 2020 review at LowEndTalk for RackNerd:
https://lowendbox.com/blog/lowendtalk-2020-best-providers-award-results/

and RackNerd VPS offers:
https://lowendbox.com/?s=racknerd+vps&searchsubmit=Find

I've learned from @fitkoh that anything with Ryzen in it is a good start for exploring a deal that is offered with it.

I found this at LET as well.  @fitkoh .... what do you think about the offer?

@deanhills

I have bought a small package to test, from Lowendtalk.  A 4GB KVM for  3.50 usd.

https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/171105/starting-at-3-50-kvm-virtualizor-nvme-24-7-support

CPU Core: 4 (these are under fair use policy rather than dedicated)
RAM: 4 GB
NVMe: 80GB
Bandwidth: 2 TB/Month

The interesting thing is I even got DirectAdmin along with this one. He said he has fee copies left and I found one there. So far it's working fine and I have only had it for about 5 days. It's just a low-end server but I think it's pretty cool for 3.5 per month. It's a good place for me to learn and get used to Direct Admin root, reseller, and user panels. Maybe even to run few test sites since I no longer have any free VPS.

I've been wanting to try this provider for a while too. Geographically, this is the closest "low end" provider to my physical location.

Also cool is the story of how Little Creek got started - formerly a brick mason, he started hosting a few sites and eventually built a datacenter in  his basement and automating things and then finally rents space in a nearby datacenter.

@xdude would you be willing to share yabs?

Great stuff @xdude.  Looks like a great deal with DirectAdmin loaded for free as well.  8)

@fitkoh great story.  I love stories like that.   :D
