Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great performance
Vultr consistently has great results in benchmarks compared to other VPS providers. It's true that VPS benchmarks are famous for not being very credible because they depend on a myriad of outside variables (most notably instances hosted on the same hardware and distance from the data-center). But still, Vultr scores consistently high in several different benchmarks such as CPU performance and MySQL compilation times.
Pro Daily automatic backup
Vultr is capable of running daily backups with two most recent backups stored. Time of backup can be changed.
Pro Wide geographic coverage
Vultr boasts more than a dozen datacenters across the world, ensuring maximal geographic coverage and the chance to increase loading speed wherever your largest demographics may be in the world.
Pro Quick-deploy apps
Vultr offers stock "apps", such as LEMP, Wordpress, Mincraft, Webmin, ownCloud, etc, that can be deployed instantly.
Pro Bitcoin payment support
Vultr supports Bitcoin payment. If you want to be extra careful about security and the security of your credit card/bank account/paypal account you can pay with Bitcoins.
Con No billing-support on sunday
Added 30 dollars of funds to a new account on a Sunday, however Vultr did not allow me to deploy because of a insufficient funds message. Added support ticket, received the answer that billing related issues are only resolved on workdays.
Con Sub-par documentation
While Vultr does offer documentation, it's not of a very high quality. Not everything is covered and it's more aimed at advanced users. So it wouldn't be a good choice for a beginner.
