To get this price of $137.50/mo you need to select annual billing cycles and pre pay for a year of hosting. Any shorter billing cycles and the price will be $150/mo.

The VPS plans from HostDime are rather pricey. They do come with pure SSD storage and cPanel included, as well as very high bandwidth. Each plan also comes with 2 dedicated IP addresses. Select managed or unmanaged and Linux or Windows. Note that if you choose to register a domain name though this host you will have to pay a high premium. Right now they charge $27.99/year for a .com. Remote backup storage is $10/mo for 25 GB, but you can get up to 300 GB for $100/mo. Enterprise DDos Protection starts at $75/mo.

HostDime is a web hosting company that specializes in VPS and dedicated server hosting, with data centers located in Florida, USA. It is super secure data center with a building inside a building that is manned at all times, even under the last hurricane. They also have interesting global locations available for their VPS plans. They allow adult content on their servers.

Conclusion

The VPS plans by HostDime are really expensive compared with the amount of resources that they offer in compariosn with other hosts. However they do have one positive and that is a huge bandwidth limit of close to 15 TB monthly.

Hosted with the Goolge Cloud

This cloud web server is hosted in one of the top data centers in the world, part of the Google Cloud. You do get all the benefits of being hosted on the Google Cloud and the ease and functionality and support by being a customer of the Cloudways web hosting company as well.

Scale your server as needed

There are lots of levels for scaling your server to just have the amount of resources you require. Starting at 1.70 GB RAM and 1 virtual CPU core, and going all the way up to 32 virtual CPU cores and 120 GB RAM.

Storage and bandwidth prices

The Google Cloud plans comes with 20 GB of storage and just 2 GB of bandwidth, but you surely can use a lot more than that. It will be billed 0.12$ per GB of storage and $0.14 per GB of bandwidth.

Data center locations

Choose between the following 11 data centers to host your websites and applications: USA - Iowa, USA - South Carolina, USA - North Virginia, USA - Oregon, Europe - London, Europe - Frankfurt, Europe - Belgium, Asia Pacific - Singapore, Asia Pacific - Sydney, Asia Pacific - Taiwan, Asia Pacific - Tokyo

Conclusion

The only reason this plan does not get top ratings of 90%+ is because of the pricing. Similar plans with similar resources per cloud server has lower prices. I don't know if the extra value of being hosted on the Google Cloud is worth the price increase.

After the initial period this server will cost $189.00/mo – so you can save a lot by making the initial period as long as possible – max 3 years.

1 year pre payed billing cycle required to get the price of $139.99/mo. 2 years: $129.99/mo. 3 years: $119.99/mo. If you select month-to-month billing the price will go up to $249.99/mo.

Every dedicated server from Bluehost comes with a free domain name. You get access to 24/7 live support which specializes in dedicated server support and works closely by the engineers that are maintaining the servers. The servers does not come with RAID-1 as a default only as a supported feature. It is not easy to compare the dedicated servers from Bluehost with most other hosts because they do not share what models their CPU is and at what frequencies the cores are running at.

Domain Whois Privacy is $0.99/mo with this server and lets you hide your personal name and contact information from your domain information that will be posted on lots of sites on the internet. If you need whois privacy it would be a little cheaper to register your domain name though another registrar instead of using the free domain provided by Bluehost. With other registrars you can domains for less than $10/year and FREE whois privacy.

Search Engine Jumpstart is a bundle with SEO resources and tips and costs $2.99/mo. You can get a lot of SEO tips for free, check out out our guide and lists with resources here. The SiteLock Monitoring scans daily for lots of bad stuff like malware. It costs $1.99/mo.

Customer guarantees

It is great that Bluehost does not charge a setup fee for their dedicated servers, and also that they offer a 30 day money back guarantee.

Same price whether you pay monthly or yearly. Price is currently on sale by 25% to 33% which means you get a decent discount for your first order, so choose long length billing cycles to increase your discount!

All Hostwinds plans with cPanel have auto SSL which give all your websites https for free and automatically. The cost of upgrading to SSD drives depends on which VPS plan you choose. cPanel VPS licence costs $13/mo and that is included in our listed price to make it easier to compare with the other plans, but cPanel is actually an optional extra. Softaculous is another $2/mo. $2 per extra standard IP address. Basic server monitoring is another $5/mo. Cloud backups makes sure your data is safe and accessible and costs only $1/mo and is performed daily. WindSpeed is a one time service offered by Hostwinds which claims to be able to provide information which can be used to significantly speed up a website. Windshield is a security extra which adds a shield to your site.

Data center location

Choose between Seattle and Dallas in the USA to be your server's location.

24/7 live support

The Hostwinds support is great and sales support is really quick to respond with the chat box on the homepage of Hostwinds. For technical support requests you need to post a ticket. The support is based in the USA and is fluent in the language as well as very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Conclusion

If you need web hosting on a server in the USA then I would strongly suggest to consider a Hostwinds plan. They get good scores from me for having lots of payment options, USA based support team, long money back guarantees and the best uptime guarantees. They also allow adult content on all plans.

I would have liked to see SSD storage as in included feature at no extra cost. The possibility to scale up or down your plan (except disk space, that can't be scaled down) like in the cloud is neat. With a huge selection of 10 different VPS plans you are sure to find a plan that suits your needs.

You need to pre pay for 12 months to get the price of $143.99/mo for your initial period. After the first year the plan will renew at $184.99/mo. With monthly billing this server is $194.99/mo.

I am glad to see that they have a strong 30 day money back guarantee even for their dedicated servers. It does not apply to the included domain. Domain Whois Privacy is $9.99/year.

You need to pay yearly for the $149.00/mo price. If you rather want to pay monthly the price is $169.00/mo.

You can buy extra ram for your server with this plan: up to a total of 16 GB RAM. If you want to have more RAM or SSD storage you need to rather select their 12 Core Dedicated.

Dreamhost does not share what model their CPUs are and not what frequency the cores are running at so it's hard to compare with other dedicated servers. One just got to assume that those features are on the low-end.
