I don't understand the bad reviews
Mason Curry,

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 ... More many times 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.

The support team was super quick at responding to the problem I was having. They addressed it immediately and went above and beyond what I was expecting. Thank you!

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 t... More ake 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

The A2 FTP server is extremly slow for any user from any place in the world. Still A2 claims everything is fine and refuses to do anything about it. I never ever got such horrible support
