BlueVPS VPS plans and prices

BlueVPS offers different types of web hosting offers. We’ll focus on their VPS plans in our review. All VPS hosting plans use KVM virtualization so you are guaranteed resources. They offer both Linux and Windows.

All plans are fully managed and include their 24/7 support.

Here’s what you can get:

KVM VPS with RAID hard drive – starting at $ 2.69 per month.

  • CPU 1 × 2.66 GHz
  • RAM 256 MB
  • RAID-10 HDD 10GB
  • Port 1 Gbit / s
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • IPv4 – 1 IP
  • IPv6 – 4 IPs
  • KVM virtualization
  • SSH and VNC access

We recommend these plans if your hard drive isn’t limiting you. It can be worth it given the price, it all depends on your needs.

KVM VPS with SSD – starting at $ 2.99 per month.

  • CPU 1 × 2.66 GHz
  • RAM 256 MB
  • SSD 7 GB
  • Port 1 Gbit / s
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • IPv4 – 1 IP
  • IPv6 – 4 IPs
  • SSH and VNC access

It’s a considerable upgrade from the HDD version. You can get SSD storage for just 30 cents more. It’s worth the higher price for the performance boost and benefits over the hard drive.

KVM VPS with NVMe power supply – starting at $ 8 per month

  • CPU 1 × 2.9 GHz (Epyc core)
  • RAM 1024 MB
  • NVMe 12 GB
  • Port 1 Gbit / s
  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • IPv4 – 1 IP
  • IPv6 – 4 IPs
  • SSH and VNC access

The cheapest NVMe plan is significantly more expensive than the cheapest SSD plan, but the upgrade is much higher. You get more RAM, a better CPU, and better storage. Given the tech specs, the pricing is still very low and affordable.

All in all, it’s well worth the pricing for the resources you get with all of their servers. It is definitely an option to consider.

BlueVPS benchmarks

We will be running benchmarks and tests on their SSD-bWKVM 4096 plan.

As usual, we will run Nench on a freshly installed VPS without prior optimizations or configurations.

Here are the results:

Great results. A good indication of how powerful your hardware and network are.

Disadvantages of BlueVPS

One of the downsides is that they don’t offer shared web hosting. However, the cheapest VPS plan, which starts at $ 2.69 per month, is a great alternative.

Another downside is that their website is pretty new and doesn’t have enough information about the services they offer, support, the team itself, company history, etc.

Some of their hosting plans use HDD. This isn’t really a downside as you have other options (SSD and NVMe). It can actually be a benefit to have an extra cheaper option if you don’t mind using a hard drive.

These 3 may not be a big deal when deciding whether or not to go with BlueVPS.

Conclusion on our BlueVPS review

It is definitely worth a try. They are affordable and their server plans have great specs. They have different plans and prices to choose from so you can easily find a solution for your needs. You can always contact support if you have any questions.
