Why choose them?
Personally I’ve been using Vultr on and off for around 3 years, they’re a great hosting provider reliability and pricing wise. All of their servers give me around 1Gb/s-2Gb/s download and upload without issue. Never an issue with I/O (everything at Vultr is SSD).
For $5 a month you can get yourself a 1CPU, 1024MB RAM, 25GB SSD Linux box, if we punch that up to $20 we’d get 2CPUs, 4096MB RAM and a 80GB SSD which in any circumstance is cheap.
I’ve got nothing but praise for Vultr support, their response time is (at least in my case) within the hour.
