When most people express their desire to get a cheap VPS package for their SMEs or personal use, their audience goes “yeah right, like that’s gonna happen”. Such are prices for good VPS packages in the market that the common public is still apprehensive of approaching them. Though VPS services cost half the price of the dedicated servers and are the middle point of shared web hosting and dedicated server, most people wish for a kind of “a semi-VPS package with half the price of VPS”!

If consumer knows where to look and which features are compromisable for him/her, then a cheap VPS is not too far away. First off in the process of identifying a cheap package is to identify the key factors that they are expecting from a VPS service. Next a look for affordable VPS in the internet will throw up a lot of links to look through with those features in mind. The potential customer would do well to look at all features and arrive at a list of things that he doesn’t really need, so that, when a choice is to be made based on the availability of these not-in-need features the customer can safely omit them and opt for the cheaper package.
