Absolutely terrible hosting platform, borderline scammers, stay away at all costs!

Vultr is absolutely the worst cloud hosting platform I have ever used. The customer service is very hardworking in block your account but extremely lazy to review your requests. They *WILL* closely monitor the applications that yo...Read Moreu run and then kill your service and block your account on every excuses that they can find, so that they can seize the balance you already deposited into the account. Your data and application is not safe with them, as their admin watches everything running on your server and trying hard to find a reason to block you. Your application is therefore at risk and unreliable. Once they starts to send you verification requests (which requires your government ID), good luck arguing with them. They will just block you and tell you they will not review your case.

TLDR: borderline scammers, stay away from them at all costs!

I don't understand the bad reviews

I've been using Vultr for two years now and deployed many instances. They are fast, reliable, and cheap. Seems like they do regular network maintenance but I've only had it affect my VMs one time. I've reached out to support many ...Read Moretimes and they are always very helpful and nice.

They continually update their product offerings and make improvements all the time. Scaling was a little rough when I first started because they didn't have as much capacity, but I have not had that issue in quite a while since they have added way more capacity.

They block port 25 by default so people don't burn their IPs, and they do require a deposit to start but I have no issue with this because I have yet to get a problematic IP. If you've been with them for a while and you have a use case for the port, they will approve it if you ask. They do all of this to prevent abuse which plagues any hosting provider. Before all of these people freak out about it in the reviews, they should consider the reasoning for it.

In terms of the number of bad reviews on here, consider that most people upset will take the time to leave their thoughts somewhere, while the grand majority of satisfied people who use it every day don't even think about it.

If you're uncertain, it's only $5 to test it out. When choosing a long term hosting provider for your applications, that is not much to put down.

Alex co,
This must be a paid review or a staff member of Vultr as you can see this person has wrote a review about vultr blocking port 25 with 5 star ratings and trying to be reasoning . literally answered my query when he could have direc...Read Moretly added a reply to my review!

Or he could have just mentioned his experience with vultr

The other thing is that he has added the response in the same day (I gave them 1 star and they have added a 5 star review and the topic is about port 25 lol +10 likes just for his review while other users don't have any like, strange - maybe your colleagues up voted lol)
(moved from digital occean?) Vultr and digital ocean have similar dashboard there could be a link between them I am not sure so I am not going to mention anything about on that.(As I haven't use digital ocean before)

>>Vultr -They are fast - agree ,reliable - maybe and cheap - yes of course! A++

(But features and customer support is a joke - I WOULDn't recommend it for any wordpress/joomla/magento/opencart/whmcs/clientexec/abantecart/SugarCRM or any other software that uses phpmail/sendmail/smtp etc or basically a contact form or a comment box)

Who wants to pay $65/month for SMTP relay for a third-party company just to send few personal emails ?

-they respond fast to tickets but in an unhelpful rude manner(even for a new customer), Leaseweb has so much better friendly polite customer support when comparing, their features are so high ,When I asked do you block port 25 by default? they said NO, it's up to you, you could block port 25 if you would like to but We don't block port 25 here (Also one of their representatives told me that their engineers said if someone blocks port 25 you can't send emails so that's bad) -I am not affiliated with leaseweb though )

Try vultr hosting only if you don't want to send reply emails to your incoming emails (you can't send order confirmation emails to your customers if you use WordPress/Woocommerce or any other ecommerce software (Port 25 is blocked permanently on all new accounts, they have mentioned that they unblock on special request (but they are lying after all they don't know how to welcome new customers -very rude) Don't take my word check other reviews on forums - You will be able to unblock port 25 if you are a reputable ISP or something

I personally don't like EIG group companies but I would give them A+++++ when it comes to customer support (EIG group companies are gods when it comes to customer service , only issue is their prices are too expensive) learn from them

>>They do all of this to prevent abuse which plagues any hosting provider
Blocking legitimate customers are not the way to address such spam issues(there are lots of spam filtering technologies they could use) If you don't know again you could learn it from EIG group's companies or ask leaseweb or phoenix how do they handle it

if all hosting providers block port 25 to prevent abuse how would you even register on hostadvice.com/ reset your password etc , get notifications about your account on hostadvice? Port 25 is the original standard SMTP port.(you block it you should give your customers alternative solutions or just mention that you block port 25 by default before we pay you)

>>>In terms of the number of bad reviews on here, consider that most people upset will take the time to leave their thoughts somewhere, while the grand majority of satisfied people who use it every day don't even think about it.

Oh I see that's why vultr have 4.4/10 and other hosting companies have around 8/10 or 9.8/10 Lol

>>while the grand majority of satisfied people who use it every day don't even think about it. So in which group do you belong to huh? majority of satisfied people? and you still take time to write a review hahaha....
Mason Curry
Mason Curry,
Here is my response to these allegations

1. Paid Review or Vultr Staff
No. Vultr did not pay me for this and I do not work there.

2. Answering your query
I was searching for "vultr instance security review" since I had an ...Read Moreissue with their system flagging one of my VMs for running something that their security systems detected - nothing illegal or against their terms, but they had contacted me about it.
This page was the third result so I decided to see what everybody was bitching about. You weren't the only one talking about port 25. I had first hand experience dealing that that block on my account.

3. Same day
Coincidence. There's new reviews every week on here.

4. Customer Service a "joke"
I've contacted them many times, and never had an issue. I reported that in my review. If you had a bad experience, you can leave that in your own review. My review is my experience, yours is your experience. That's why reviews exist.

5. "Blocking legitimate customers"
If you're legitimate, open a ticket and talk to them.

6. "In terms of bad reviews"
I left my 2 cents. I see that on the top of the hosting list on this site, ChemiCloud is listed. And rightfully so, they take the cake for the best hosting experience I've ever had. I'll admit that Vultr customer service can't touch CC, but I have yet to see any host get close to them.

Cheap VPS Cheap service ,Stay away from vultr very bad customer support and service

Really disappointed!! Stay away from vultr at any cost. Especially if you are running an ecommerce website , you can't send order notification to your customers. They block port 25 by default and they won't unblock it.

They tak...Read Moree your money and don't provide the service. Customer support is really bad (I can confirm that they don't really read your questions, instead a bot replies with some un relevant answers)Less
You can use any port for sending emails, for example I use port 587 and 993. They block port 25 for security.
Andrii Vasylenko

Very bad customer service

Reply from Billing customer support minimum 48 hours, not friendly at all, not willing to help. I tried to make payment but non of my credit card was not accepted by vultr ( 3 different credit cards from different BANKS!!!), they ...Read Morerequested photo of my ID and credit card last 4 digits , i provide all information but after 2 days no answer, i sent reminder, and they answered to me that now they need photo of myself with credit card, which before they didn't request, for me is not problem to send another photo, but wait for answer 48 hours is not normal at all, and nobody say sorry to me for waiting so long time and why they are requesting every time different infomration.. after that i sent official email to their main customer service and explained all situation and negative experience, it was almost 7 days ago.. still no answer. VULTR not interested in their customers at all, i need to push them and remind them to answer to me every time.
Thank you for your attention,

Alex co
Alex co,
Agree with you Hany ~ Vultr is fast but terrible features and customer support (and that's why they have 4.4/10

Faster network and servers? - Yes A++ on that (this is the only thing that I love about them)
Security - Should b...Read Moree great so A++
Basic Email Features - Hell no , try a different provider
Friendly and professional customer support - Don't even think about it - Terrible!!! They just don't know how to welcome and keep the customer (it doesn't matter how much the customer pays you monthly whether it's $40/month or $640/month you should treat your customers equally because you never know what the customer is about to purchase in next minute, it could have been a dedicated cloud or baremetal server)

Do they read your tickets properly ? - No , they just want to reply you fast and not to help you.

I was new to vultr and I was checking their features before I recommend my friend who runs a popular hosting company in North Carolina, USA to move to vultr (He has over 5,000 shared hosting clients) So he would have purchased several $$$/mo dedicated servers from you vultr!

customer support was awful!!

  • Pricing


You can choose from a variety of locations, and their lowest package starts at $2.5 per month, which makes it extremely affordable.

Note: Locations which you can choose from include data centers in five continents.

With so many other services that are in direct competition to Vultr, how does this service stand out from the pact, and what truly makes it special?

When it comes to the real-world usage of Vultr, how good is it? Let’s take a deep dive and find out.

Today I’ll be looking at the insides and outs of Vultr and all of the packages and services it offers.

Before we dive deeper, keep in mind that Vultr has a strict policy when it comes to returns. In fact, you’ll need to destroy any active instances and create a support ticket if you want to close your account. This means that you can easily cancel an account, but you need to ensure that you do not have a large amount of funds deposited within it. You will not receive a refund.

Getting Started with Vultr

Getting started with Vultr is actually quite simple if you know what you’re looking for.

Let’s take a deep dive into Vultr and see what actually makes it exciting.

From the very first moment that you visit the website, you are greeted by the certain packages Vultr specializes in.

Screenshot of Vultr home page

But before we dive deep into the pricing, let’s analyze the signup process itself.

On the top right corner of the screen, click on sign up.

Screenshot of creating account page

You’ll need to enter your email address alongside your password to get started.

Keep in mind that you have to confirm your email address, so ensure that it is fully legitimate.

Once you confirm your account and log in, you’ll need to enter credit card information if you want to get started.

Here’s the main screen you’ll be greeted by.

Screenshot of products page

You have products, billing, support, affiliate, account, and Vultr docs on the left side of the screen.

The products tab showcases your instances, snapshots, ISOs, Scripts, DNS, Block Storage, Objects, Firewall, Network, and Load Balancers.

The Billing tab shows your added cards, so you can make a payment, shows your limits and your history.

Screenshot of billing page

On the next screen, you have the support tab, where you can open a ticket or review the frequently asked questions.

Support page screenshot

The affiliate tab is actually quite interesting, as you can essentially refer Vultr to friends and earn $10 per signup.

You are given a unique, randomly generated link that works only for you.

Affiliate page screenshot

In the account tab, you’ll be able to view your profile, preferences, authentication, SSH keys, API, Users and Notifications.

Screenshot of account detail tab

The Vultr Docs lets you review all of their documents, and you can even sign up as a trusted author, request an article, and submit an article.

You have interesting and informative documents such as deploying a MERN application on Ubuntu 20.04 or creating Reverse DNS in the Vultr Control Panel, which is unique.

That’s all there is to sign up and getting started with Vultr, now let’s move on to the part where we set things up.

Settings Things Up at Vultr

When you click on Products, on the Instances tab, you have a large, blue + sign on the screen’s right side.

Screenshot of products tab

Once you hover over it with your mouse pointer, you’ll have several options to pick from, including:

  • Deploy New Server

    This is one of the main screens that you need to focus on initially.

    There are multiple servers that you can choose from; these include:

    1. Cloud Compute
      This allows you to create powerful compute instances for your web application or development environment. You can pick from a wide variety of instances, which are charged per hour or on a monthly basis.
    1. High Frequency
      This is quite similar to the previous option, except that you get servers that are quite a bit faster and offer quite a bit more.
    1. Bare Metal
      This is a dedicated server with no virtualization. You stay in full control of your environment with high-performance, single-tenant dedicated servers. Bare metal servers give you access to the underlying physical server and feature no virtualization layer. These can power the most resource-intensive workloads as a result.Screenshot of Bare Metal plans At the time of writing, you only have the E3-1270v6 option.
    1. Dedicated Cloud
      This offers you dedicated resources, however, the unique aspect of Vultr is in the fact that you can rent 25%, 50%, 75%, or even an entire dedicated server. You can essentially never have the need to share resources if you do not want to. This is a unique approach and I find it genuinely interesting.Screenshot of Dedicated cloud plans
    1. Object Storage
      The object storage option gives you the flexibility to add scalable storage on demand and manage it through the S3 API. You can essentially only have to pay for the data that you store or transfer out of your buckets.Screenshot of Object storage page
    1. Block Storage
      Block storage allows you to create expandable storage volumes and mount them directly from a compute instance.Screenshot of Block storage (smallest storage)Screenshot of Block storage (biggest storage) It is controlled through an API, flexible and scalable, and has a distributed design.
      Question: Can I upgrade my block storage?
      Answer: Yes, and you can do so within the members area. Also, keep in mind that this will require a reboot of the instance in which your block storage is attached.
    1. Load Balancers
      Through load balancers, you can enable horizontal scaling and increase reliability on your applications within seconds. They are simple and easy to manage, and you can deploy fully configured cloud-based load balancers from the user-friendly customer portal.Screenshot of Load Balancers pricing
  • Add Domain

As the name implies, you can add a domain to a DNS by entering the domain name and the default IP Address.

Screenshot of Add Domain to DNS page

  • Add Firewall Group

You can add a firewall group with a description.

Screenshot of Add Firewall Group page

  • Add Load Balancers

In this menu, you can add the previously discussed load balancers by selecting a location, and seeing the load balancer configuration, and setting forwarding rules and health checks.

Screenshot of Add Load Balancer page

  • Add Objects Storage

Here, you can add object storage and select a location as well as a label.

Screenshot of Add Object Storage page

  • Add Reserved IP

Here you can add a reserved IP

Screenshot of Add reversed IP page

  • View More Options

Screenshot of View Options tab

The view more options menu gives you an array of other features as well.

  • Add Snapshot

You can upload a snapshot. However, it has to be in RAW format, not VMDK, QCOW2, and so on. The maximum uploaded snapshot size is 150 GB, and the snapshot has to support VirtIO Ethernet/Disk Controllers.

Screenshot of Add Snapshot page

  • Add ISO

Here, you can upload ISO from a remote machine.

Screenshot of Add ISO page

  • Add Startup Script

You can add a startup script, which is convenient in many situations.

Screenshot of Add Startup Script page

  • Add SSH Key

This menu allows you to add an SSH key.

Screenshot of Add SSH Key Page

  • Add Block Storage

Last but not least, you can add block storage here.

Screenshot of Add Block Storage page

With that out of the way, let’s deploy a new instance.

Deploying Instances with Vultr

For the sake of this review, I’ll select the Cloud Compute option, but feel free to select what works best for your specific case.

Screenshot of the server selection page

Next, you’ll need to pick a location, and I’d recommend picking one that is either in the area of your target audience or near you, depending on your needs; I’ll go with Frankfurt in Germany for the time being.

Screenshot of the server location page

Next, we’ll need to set up the server type.

Here you can make it either a 64 bit OS or a 32 bit OS. Honestly, at the time of writing, 64 bit makes the most sense, so I’ll pick that.

In terms of OS, I’ll use CentOS, but you can choose from the following:

  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • Fedora
  • Fedora CoreOS
  • FreeBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • Ubuntu
  • Windows

Screenshot of the server type page

Next you’ll need to pick the server size.

Now, I’m not that keen on spending, and I’m testing things out, so I’ll go with the $5 plan. Keep in mind that you can pick whatever you need here.

Screenshot of the server size page

Last but not least, you can enable additional features, such as IPv6, Auto Backups, DDoS protection, and private networking.

Screenshot of the additional features page

You can also add startup scripts, SSH keys, and server hostname and label.

You’ll see the total cost on the very bottom of the screen and the deploy now button.

Screenshot of the total cost with the Deploy Now button

Click on deploy now to get started.

Your server will now be active, and the software will begin installing.

Screenshot of the server (installing)

Once it’s completed, you’ll see it running.

Screenshot of the server (running)

If you click on the three dots on the right side, you’ll be able to see additional features.

Screenshot of the additional features when click on the three dots button

These include:

  • Server Details
  • View Console
  • Server Stop
  • Server Restart
  • Server Reinstall
  • Server Destroy

The one you’ll be using most of the time is the server details tab.

Screenshot of the Server Information page/ overview tab

Here you’ll see information about the server, such as the IP address, username, password, CPU, RAM, Storage, Bandwidth, Label, Tag, OS, and charges.

Now, here you’ll have access to features such as the overview, but you can also see the usage graphs, settings, snapshots, backups, and DDoS.

As we move on to the Usage Graphs, you can review your monthly bandwidth.

Screenshot of the Server Information page/ Usage Graphs

On the settings tab, you can see a lot of things.

Screenshot of the Server Information page/ Settings tab

Most notable ones being the public network information, such as the address, netmask, gateway, and reverse DNS.

You can create snapshots, enable backups, and enable DDoS protection as well.

Now, through the console, you can basically do anything you want to with your server.

Screenshot of the console

In terms of other features, you can also deploy apps in a single click, and these include CentOS Web panel, cPanel, Docker, Drupal, GitLab, Jitsi, Joomla and much more.

Screenshot of the one click installers

With that out of the way, let’s try and terminate the server.

On the top right corner of the screen, click on Server Destroy.

Screenshot of the Server Destroy button

You’ll have to check a little check box before clicking on Destroy Server.

Screenshot of the Server Destroy window with checkbox

You’ll now see the status of your server is at the “Destroying” phase.

Screenshot of the Server status (Destroying)

Just wait for it to finish.

And that’s all there is to using servers.

Level of Support

With that out of the way, let’s see the level of support.

I’ll open a ticket.

Screenshot of the Support page

In order to open a support ticket, you’ll need to select a category, server, subject, and message.

Screenshot of the New Support ticket page

Screenshot of the Support page (filling the page)

Click on Open Ticket and you are good to go.

Keep in mind that regular hours are weekdays 9 AM to 6 PM EDT (1 PM to 10 PM UTC).

Screenshot of the Support page with message that ticket added successfully

That’s about it.

Let’s talk about the refund policy for a second.

If you cancel any service prior to the expiration of the pre-paid fees, you understand, and agree that Vultr will not issue you any refund at all. This isn’t limited to any remaining pre-paid fees, set up fees, and special programming fees.

Instances that are in a stopped state continue to reserve dedicated system resources, such as RAM, SSD storage, IP aliases, CPU cores and so on, and therefore need to be charged, until the instance is fully destroyed. If you do not want to accumulate charges, you have to destroy the instance completely.

If you have funds in your account, and want to cancel or destroy the account completely, these will also not be refunded.

Question: Is pricing the same in all data center locations?

Answer: Prices are as similar as possible, as there is variation in regional costs across the 20 locations. So, regional costs differ from one country to another, therefore Vultr has to include those differences in its prices.

Performance, Speed and Uptime

I really love Vultr because they promise 100% host Node Uptime and 100% network uptime.

They also have outage credits. If the availability is below the guarantee, the accounts become eligible for SLA credits based on any affected instances’ hourly costs.

Screenshot of the outage credits tab

In my experience testing it, speed was solid, and I saw no downtime.

Tip: You can test the download speed of any Vultr server by going to the FAQs section on Vulrt’s website. There, under the technical submenu, you can find links with which you can test the speed of the location of your choosing.

In terms of pricing, it starts at $2.50, up to $540 per month depending on the type of performance you need. You can even purchase additional storage as well as bandwidth, which allows for easy scaling.

Security and Backups

Vultr’s native DDoS mitigation system protects your cloud server inside the Vultr network, meaning no increased latency and no routing of your traffic to a third party.

In terms of security, you can also benefit from free TLS/SSL certificates, SSH Keys, two-factor authentication, Vultr Firewall, Cloudflare, and One-Click OpenVPN.

Vultr offers automatic backup. You can configure this feature to run daily, every other day, weekly, or monthly and choose the time of day when it occurs. Vultr stores the backups in the same data center as the original instance but on a separate, fault-tolerant storage system. The provider keeps the two most recent snapshots of the entire server, not individual files. When it comes to content, the backups include the VPS active file system but not the attached block storage volumes.

Specific Features of Vultr Hosting

Now that you get the overall idea let’s see what makes Vultr unique, thus gives them a competitive advantage in the market.

To start, I especially like their server infrastructure, accounting for superior speeds and uptime. After all, 100% host Node Uptime and 100% network uptime are not something you can find every day.

Note: The industry standard for uptime is 99.9%, so Vultr actually exceeds expectations when it comes to speed!

Furthermore, I love their custom control panel, offering you a bunch of features on an easy-to-use channel as the end-user. Essentially, it’s easy to navigate, even for a beginner.

Vultr also comes with dedicated IP addresses and other top-notch security features to protect you on the web at all times. As you can also benefit from an ultra-fast Intel Core, it’s safe to say the provider grants extraordinary value for its price.


Vultr is essentially the perfect solution for people or corporations that want a scalable hosting solution. It’s a company that specialized in cloud computing and boasts some of the fastest SSD’s on the market. Their strength is in their multiple data centers, and they are extremely reliable.

Vultr pros

  • Offers servers in different geographical locations
  • Has a high level of scalability
  • You pay as you go
  • You never really need to pay for resources you do not use
  • Easy billing monitoring available

Vultr cons

  • Not familiar to beginners
