RockMyWeb’s subsidiary Cloud3K is offering $6 unmanaged VPS on RockMyWeb’s 6th anniversary. It so happened that I’m actually looking for an affordable VPS host so I signed up with them. I already started moving some of my sites there including this site. That means I had to follow the instructions in my LAMP Installation post.
Anyway, here’s what you’ll supposed to get for your $6.
- RAM : 1GB
- Disk : 50GB
- Bandwidth : 2TB
- CPUs : 4
Take note that I chose the semi-annual billing so I’m really diving into it. Hopefully I won’t regret it. JaguarPC, my current hosting provider, has been very reliable. However, I’m already outgrowing my VPS there and upgrading it makes the VPS too expensive.
By the way, it must be noted that Cloud3K is not actually a cloud hosting like the Amazon or Azure. Instead they have a mirror server such that if your physical server fails, requests are redirected to the backup server. Hopefully we don’t come to a point where we need those failover servers.
