Cheap HDD VPS Providers

This is just a list of cheap hosting providers I have used for self-reference in case I ever need to refer back to them. You may wish to use them yourself.

Alpha VPS (Current)

  • Website:
  • Plan I chose was 5 Euros for 1TB storage, 2 vCPU, and 2 GB RAM. 3TB transfer
  • server a little slow to respond, but suitable for the job of backups or file hosting.
  • Server Locations: Germany or Bulgaria


  • Website:
  • Responsive VPS, but not as cheap as Alpha VPS
  • 12 euros for 1TB storage, but 20TB bandwidth. 1 vCPU and 2GB RAM
  • Server Locations: Netherlands
