BlueVPS Review – Pricing and Features
So there are many VPS choices. You can choose from 8 different VPS plans right on the homepage.
$2/month for the ‘KVM 256’ plan. 2.66GHz is a fast connection, with 256 MB RAM, 10GB HDD, 1Gbps speed, unlimited bandwidth, IPv4 and IPv6 access, SSH & VNC, unlimited bandwidth, KVM virtualization, and 256 MB RAM.
What’s KVM virtualization?
KVM stands to Kernal-based Virtual Machine. It is a Linux host capable of running virtual environments that can be used with any OS.
You can likely run an older version of OS such as WindowsXP, FreeBSD, or any other minimal Linux distribution with the above specifications. Security is less important because you can easily get customized measures or programs that will protect your site.
Most plans include minor upgrades to bKVM256 such as RAM, storage, and processor count.
The plan ‘bKVM1024’ has dual 2.66GHz processors (not cores, but individual processing units), 1GB memory, and 20GB storage for $6/month. Our opinion is that this plan offers value for money.
The plan KVM-8192 offers four 2.66GHz processors, 8GB RAM, and 200GB storage. It costs $34 per month, which is quite expensive.
This plan will allow you to run more heavy stuff, such as a Windows 10 environment (4GB of memory is the limit), a shared data hub for your startup, possibly your own gaming server, and many other things.
The pricing of plans is affordable and offers rare features. The pricing is for an annual billing cycle. You can choose to alternate between biennially, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and biennially.
