BUYVM SSD SLICE 1024 VPS REVIEW

buyvm

Hello readers. We did not review hosting provider for some time now. The last one was back in 2018 so it is time to review one. This time we write a review about BuyVM KVM Slice 1024 VPS. As you may know, it is hard to get one of these from them as they are always out of stock, but at this time we have some luck I believe, at their Las Vegas location. They are very well known VPS provider in a market, so we hope that this review may help you. In case that you wish to order this, VPS you may do it from this link.

Conclusion

BuyVM offers quality VPS at a cheap price. We did not use Asia optimized IP so we can’t test and tell much about it. They take security really serious so your VPS root password will not come in welcome email. We got VPS details in about 30 minutes after the order is placed (we believe due to fraud checks). BuyVM also has a custom in house built panel for your VPS called Stallion, from where you can control your VPS, load iso, install from OS from offered images, and many other things.

Two more things that are worth to mention is that they offer Anycast feature for free, and also you can add “block storage slabs” for a price of $5 USD for 1TB of storage! Yes, you read right 1TB of usable storage for just $5. At this time we did not test storage but we will at some point as we will keep this VPS. Our opinion is simple, we highly recommend BuyVM VPS.
