    I don't know if I am allowed to post the links of the companies but if you type in cheap VPS UK in search the top result is £2.03 a month. Is this ok for me to run GSA SER, Scrapebox on 24/7 etc? Thanks.

    The top result in my case was OVH with prices from £1. Note, that the virtual servers you're referring to may be Linux-based, and as such will not be able to run the tools you mentioned. If you somehow found a Windows VPS at that price, the Windows license would most likely be cracked. As well as that, the servers may be oversold - at these prices, server providers would have to fit hundreds of clients on a single server to earn something.

    Just remember the saying - if it's too good to be true, it probably is.
    Better invest in some decent, slightly higher priced product.

    Would you buy a $2.00 cellphone? Never, if you need something reliable then pay for the quality

    Just my opinion though

    VPS providers sell their services for such a low price because they want your business and are upselling their servers. Always check on the provider before ordering

    There are so many reasons to see cheap VPS, some will offer on new openings and on holidays and those are great to use. If you found any cheap VPS all the time, then they are not offering best service in the market.

    Check the VPS terms to find whether you are allowed to install GSA or any software.
