In my upcoming posts, I will talk about cheap VPS services. I have tested some of the cheapest VPS deals I could find and have learned a lot along the way. Setting up a VPS is relatively easy, however like anything new, there are some things to learn.
I was very surprised to find that for less than $10/month you can get a VPS with 1TB of storage, which would be perfect for self hosting a file syncing application like nextCloud.
I was even more surprised to find that VPS could be had for as low as $8/year! I just had to try these out!
In my next post, I will talk about the VPS services I have been using, and the experiences I have had with setting them up, and some benchmarks to somehow quantify their performance.
I learned that it's not all about performance, as the needs of the server are considered, low performance services may be very useful.
