Virtual Private Server (VPS):

BudgetVM offers four kinds of VPS:

1. SSD VPS (openVZ):

Scalable SSD VPS are powered by openVZ. SSD storage arrays with block-level striping for increased read/write performance and industry-standard full drive mirroring for fault-tolerance. The result is in a balanced increase in both redundancy and performance.

2. Linux VPS (openVZ):

OpenVZ Linux VPSs are fully scalable. Available at a very competitive rate according to industry standard. VPSs are packed with resources and pricing starts at as low as $1.25/month.

3. Linux VPS (XEN):

Xen provides higher performance than openVZ and hardware resources are better utilized. Virtual machines are truly isolated from one another and over usage of resources by one node doesn’t affect other nodes in the same machine. Xen Linux VPSs are fully scalable – meaning you can always increase VPS resources according to your need.

4. Windows VPS (Xen):

Powered by Xen – BudgetVM Windows VPSs are one of the cheapest in the industry. The robust BudgetVM implementation of Xen allows for a high level of customization including the ability to enable TUN/TAP and the ability to use Windows 2003, Windows 2008, and Windows 2012 with the click of a button.

  1. Steve says:

    Budgetvm support is worst. It takes 10-12 hours or even a day to get a ticket reply. Not a good choice for beginners.

  2. Peter says:

    You can’t and should not expect much from their support. Specially the pricing they offer is crazy and they simply can’t afford good support with that pricing. But Budgetvm is good for experts who can manage their own server or VPS. I use budgetvm remote server backup for backing up my hosting accounts in my vps which is with burstnet. Burstnet also offers backup – but the cost is not as good as budgetvm.

  3. James says:

    I had a great experience there.

    – Uptime
    – Cheap VPS
    – Fast

    – Said instant setup, but took 10 minutes
    – management package is too expensive ($50/mo on $3 vps)
    – Netherlands location closed

    All said and done, I’d recommend it to anyone. You get a lot for your dollar.
