    So this is the offer:

    2GK UK KVM
    • 2GB RAM
    • 55GB HDD space
    • 4 vCPU cores
    • 1.5TB transfer
    • 1Gbps uplink
    • 1x IPv4
    • IPv6
    • KVM/SolusVM
    • £2.50/month ($3.84)
    I don't really know the downside of a KVM compared to a VPS, but this was a lot cheaper compared to the kinds of VPS being offered :).

    Would this be a good deal to host multiple websites? Best one I found so far (even though it is a KVM instead of VPS).

    Just beware, that configuration at that price sounds like it's going to be oversold and won't be dedicated to you.

    So it's basically shared hosting?

    If they are selling that kind of configuration for so cheap, it's definitely shared configuration. You might want to double check and do some research about them.

    In their FAQ they indeed tell it is shared hosting, but "promised" that they don't oversell. Also, they say they are using Xen Hypervisor which supposedly won't let them oversell anyway.

    Sent you a PM with the link :) (not sure if I'm allowed to post links).

    Edit: So far this is still the best deal I can find, any reason not to take the deal / is this enough to host multiple sites?

    What's the catch, is a bigger question may be? THat's crazy if you got that server for that price. Expect the service to deteriorate very soon. Digital Ocean/ Amazon AWS for example give you realistically priced servers that are top notch.. I seriously doudt that deal you have..

    Well... I can send you the link ? They say that it is a "new service" and they want to attract customers. Worth a shot?

    Keep in mind that vCPU is not real CPU!

    Tells me you need to clear some space ;).

    Nevertheless, I still haven't really gotten an answer to my original question: is this offer worth it for hosting multiple sites?

    Well if that's real CPU ( there will be some minimum guaranteed cpu speed) speed, you can host quite a few low trafficed ones. Just install webmin and create some virtual hosts. I still doudt they would support more than 2-3 though. Gonna test them out. Will let others know about my experience.
