Best Cheap VPS?

    There's a lot of VPS hosts out there soooo I'm looking for help.

    I'd like a Windows VPS I can remote desktop into as I would like to also run a game server every once in awhile as well as the site.

    Advice which host to choose?

    What game are you planning on running? I don't really know many VPS hosts (especially not Windows) that allow you to run gameservers. You might be better off getting a small, cheap dedicated server. Of course that's going to raise your budget, but that might be your only option.

    You don't have to use Windows to remote desktop with it. Things like tigervnc are easy to set up.
    Anyways, try lowendbox.com

    The original idea was to purchase a windows VPS to install and run games as well as a forum but I scrapped that idea as it's much cheaper to just go for a linux based VPS and a separate game server, thanks for the help though dudes :)

    I'm happy with www.tilaa.com (NL KVM hosting), really good support, they also have presence freenode. I also heard really good things about Vultr.

    1) Linode- Great unmanaged hosting that has a very good track record, daily backups http://www.linode.com
    2) Digital Ocean - Another great solution, cheap too http://www.digitalocean.com
    3) Vultr- Another good service but use your own backups http://www.vultr.com
    Not sure how vultr is expensive, unless you expect to pay a dime for premium service.

    If you get DigitalOcean just use a different email client (e.g. Mandrill) since most of their IPs are blacklisted as spam with major email clients such as gmail/yahoo.

    Try Linode or RamNode.
    DO has slower CPU and SSD.

    Aren't they more expensive? I am on the $5/plan and don't really need anything more.

    Linode 10$ plan has similar ram and storage to other comparable companies, but tends to be more consistent in networking, IO, and cpu available

    If you can get by on a 5$ plan elsewhere, your project is too small for linode

    I think when I outgrow my 512mb droplet I will take a look at Linode.
