In VpsBenchmark's opinion

Feature Value Comment
UI Friendliness 

Very detailed admin UI, borderline complex but presented in a friendly way.

Customizable dashboard.

Quality of Service 

The default firewall settings block outbound ssh. This is unique in the world of VPS providers. In addition, firewall settings can't be modified during the free trial period. Lots of head scratching guaranteed for new Upcloud users.

The pricing page is unclear. It's hard to say what the pricing table at the bottom of the page refers too, it contradicts the pricing listed at the top of the page.

UpCloud Extra Services

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

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