Super Cheap Cloud VPS: 1 Core, 1024MB, SSD, Managed – Just $21.25 / Month

by Yang Yang on December 26, 2012

Some of my sites such as ConvertHub has grown out of the 512MB box I have had for over 2 years at Linode. It’s been great but as I’m fed up with managing the server myself (I’ll come to that later), I went ahead looking for a solid VPS plan with WHM / cPanel that’s managed for me. After searching for a few weeks, I finally landed my deal with A Small Orange.

A Small Orange Double RAM Cloud VPS Sale

What I did was:

  1. Select 1 Core + 1024MB RAM + 15GB Drive (It’s SSD!) + 500GB Bandwidth for $30 / month.
  2. Opt to pay annually so I can get 2 months free. Not that you will get 2 months free, but you will be paying $25 / month instead of $30 / month if you pay annually, working out to be $60 discount over a year from $360 / year to just $300 / year.
  3. Click and use the 15% coupon code:
    ASO15PERCENTOFF
    Click To Open/Copy
    to claim an additional 15% discount off the annual price from $300 to just $255.

That’s it. You get all these awesome stuff for just $255 / year, that’s just $21.25 / month:

  1. 1 Core – Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2640 0 @ 2.50GHz
  2. 1024MB RAM
  3. 15GB SSD (Solid-State Drive)
  4. 500GB monthly transfer
  5. WHM / cPanel
  6. 2 Dedicated IPs that are far from each other – NOT in the same C-class! This is a huge benefit for SEO reasons. Another proof that A Small Orange thinks in the customers’ shoes.
  7. Fully managed
  8. Almost instant response to support tickets – I have only been with them for a few days and the support response is well within 30 minutes each time I submit a ticket.
  9. It’s A Small Orange, an established business and brand since 2003. Just search for their reviews.

I challenge you to find a better VPS deal than this cause’ it’s mission impossible. The only downside is that the disk storage will have only about 8GB available for your websites / applications after the system takes 7GB. However, I doubt your websites would need that much unless they have millions of image files or tens of millions of records in the database.
