In VPSBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 
  • Sign up experience includes uploading your SSH key which is smart.
  • UI lacks per VPS dashboard that would show IP address for example.
Quality of Service 

VPS don't get public IPv4 address by default. A "Cloud IP" must be created separately and then associated with the VPS. It is charged extra.
