My main criteria are:
Located in the USA
Reasonable pricing (below $50/month would be ideal)
Allows root access
At least 2GB of RAM (4GB preferred)
At least 40GB of storage
Support for Linux (preferably Ubuntu)
Some specific features I'm looking for:
Easy control panel/dashboard
Quick provisioning of new VPS instances
I've used VPSs from companies like Vultr and DigitalOcean in the past but wanted to see if there are any other good options I should consider. My site won't have a ton of traffic to start, but I want to make sure the hosting can scale well in case the site grows.
Any suggestions for good quality but affordable VPS hosting in the US would be greatly appreciated!
