You’ve created your startup’s business plan, finished the final product and are now ready to release it. Your brand new app or game, which has taken weeks or months of hard work, is finally ready to be launched on the web. Or, perhaps you're new to this internet-based business thing and are considering using OpenCart or WordPress for your online shop or blog, for a humble start. Whatever the nature of your product or service, now you have to pick a go-to VPS host for hosting your online product or service. There are tons of options, but do you go for Vultr or SSD Nodes?

This Vultr vs. SSD Nodes article has the answer for you!

Notes and Similarities between Vultr and SSD Nodes

8GB RAM plans Vultr SSD Nodes
Disk 50GB 160GB
Transfer 5 TB 4TB
1-Month Price $60 $15
1-Year Price $720 $66
3-Year Price $2160 $153

More importantly, the 3-year SSD Nodes plan costs almost 92% less than what you'd be paying for three years with Vultr. This means that in 3 years, you’ll save $2007
