UI Friendliness 

I wish the admin UI (manage.buyvm.net) would include charts and backups, maybe ssh keys storage...

Quality of Service 

BuyVM uses a reseller for hosting its VMs (FranTech). The buying experience involved checking out and paying through FranTech. Then to manage the VM you're going back to buyvm.net on the Stallion interface. Another set of credentials is needed for Stallion that are sent you through email.

BuyVM Extra Services

In addition to features included in the VPS plan, BuyVM also offers the following services (possibly for a fee):

Backups   Block Storage Object Storage Load Balancer Floating Ips
Teams Datastores Serverless Ddos Protection
