Service Stability

Better performance

The father used a VPS from RamNode, but after RamNode was revamped, the performance was not as good as before, so the father made a comparison.

Nurse's Tip.

Domestic access to Vultr is usually not very fast, because their lines are not optimized for Chinese users, so if you can not stand slow, you can consider hanging a proxy to access your own website, really want domestic access to the network speed is also fast, then buy the next few machines: the1H1G1T, ,2H2G2T, ,2H1G1T, coupon code: BWH34QMFYT2R (can also be usedServer hosted by Milkman...) .

Support Chinese and Alipay payment

Many users have difficulty paying in English or by credit card. Vultr now supports a Chinese interface (currently only the front desk is in Chinese) and supports Alipay payments, so the barrier to entry is low.

Technology / After-sales guarantee

In all the years of using Vultr's machines, the daddy has not submitted a single work order to contact their customer service, mainly because the machine has never had any problems.

Even if you encounter problems, from the feedback of users, their work orders are faster accordingly.

Of course, Vulrt does not just say that the after-sales service is here to rest assured that their technical daddy feels higher than some ordinary small business, when the linux has updated, they will quickly update the new system to the optional configuration inside, unlike some small business, still using the obsolete linux version.

Vultr's technical documentation is also very rich, you can find a lot of tutorials (although the white users can not read the English tutorials), but the technical documentation is perfect to prove the company's attitude to do things.
