HostSlick BLACKFRIDAY2019-2 OVZ7 Review

For $35/year, you get 4 cores, 6gb ram and swap, 100gb ssd and 3tb bandwidth and ipv6 connectivity. A really good deal I must say, even if it is an OpenVZ vps.

The benchmark results I have done so far shows the vps to be performing rather well. If the performance stays the same a few months down the road, this will definitely be a steal for $35
