    Anyone have experience with these two companies? Looking to set up VPS hosting for my websites and considering these two.

    Imotion seems to get very high reviews from a lot of sites, but seems a bit steep in cost after the first year. I only heard about Vultr on BHW so I don't know much about them except their website looks very clean. Lol.

    Thanks roki, but I am in the US and prefer to go with a US based company whenever possible.

    Great question Hudson. I should have been more specific.

    For this project, I am looking for managed hosting. I want minimal headache so I can focus on SEO stuff to drive traffic. But of course, I'm not made of money so a decent cost per month is important as well.

    A managed provider will be more no doubt. Vultr Digital Ocean and most of the VPS companies I use are self managed. I frequent webhostingtalk website as well from time to time to check out new companies and look at reviews. Whoever you go with I would only pay month to month and would not do a year up front. That way you can make sure they are a good fit. Also make sure you have good backups so you can move your sites if need be to another host. Backups are cheap downtime is not. Hope this helps you find a solution. Best of luck!

    In short, I think Vultr is a good choice because,

    + Uptime is so great
    + They offer SSD VPS at an affordable price
    + Customer service is also great
    + You can create new servers within a minute
    + They also allow hourly billing, which is good for one time experiments where you can launch lots of servers for some period without paying much.
    + $2.5 per month plan offer 512MB RAMm 15GB SSD and 1TB bandwidth, enough for side projects or if you're creating your first website or application. You can always upgrade/downgrade if necessary.
    + They're reliable company backed by some reputed ventures/people in the industry.
    + They also offer backups/snapshots (manual backup is free of cost)
    + Dashboard/Admin panel is simple and intutive
    + There are lots of pre-configured templates available (for popular CMS/frameworks) that will save your time when launching new servers
    + Lots of tutorials available to help you out when you're stuck, so even if you're new to server admin stuffs you can easily get things done.

    Good luck to you,

    You can always give one a shot. Just make sure you keep backups of your site local so if something happens then you can move the site without any issues.
