Hi everyone,

In this post, I will be comparing DigitalOcean vs. Linode vs. Vultr vs. GCP and answering the question: Who hosts better VPSes?

Table

Please click here or refer to this link for the table: https://drive.google.com/file/d/158Py1mE5j3cX9hNjaQMWR-iQW66rXge3/view?usp=sharing

How to understand the table:

  • Sysbench Single-Thread/Multi-Thread (factor prime numbers up to 5000) time: faster is better
  • Latency/Jitter: lower is better
  • Download/Upload speed: higher is better
  • Sysbench Multi-Thread (factor prime numbers for 2 minutes) events: higher is better

DigitalOcean Shared CPU – Regular Intel

For this VPS, it has 2 vCPUs, 4 GB RAM and a 80GB Disk for $20 a month. It had pretty decent download speeds with one of the lowest upload speeds in the table, but the slowest Single-Threaded Sysbench time. It also had the lowest 2 minute Sysbench Multi-Threaded events.

DigitalOcean Shared CPU – Premium Intel

For this VPS, it has 2 Intel vCPUs, 4 GB RAM and a 80GB Disk for $24 a month. It had pretty decent download speeds with one of the lowest upload speeds in the table. Its Sysbench timings were faster than the Regular Intel D/O VPS, but its Sysbench 2 minute events are not that good.

DigitalOcean Shared CPU – Premium AMD

For this VPS, it has 2 AMD vCPUs, 4 GB RAM and a 80GB Disk for $24 a month. It had pretty decent download speeds with one of the lowest upload speeds in the table. Its Sysbench timings were faster than the Premium Intel D/O VPS, but its Sysbench 2 minute events are one of the highest in the table.
