The most affordable FreeBSD-supported Cloud/VPS hosting providers

PC-BSD 10.1 wallpapers

Looking for a Cloud/VPS hosting provider that supports FreeBSD? Your search is more than half way done.

That’s because I have gone through the official list of ISPs that support FreeBSD and come up with the most affordable ones, plus one that’s not on that list. The result is given in the table below.

The cheapest service is TransIP, which is based in the Netherlands, but has just one data center. Next is DigitalOcean, a startup Cloud service provider based in New York City, USA. DigitalOcean has data centers in the US, UK, Netherlands and Singapore. For the record, I use DigitalOcean, so if you opt to sign up with them, you may do so using my referral id.

Two more that I am aware support FreeBSD

One big issue I found with Rackspace though. They have no swap and enable ZFS by default. FreeBSD does not seem very stable without a swap and creating a file swap under ZFS is not very stable so for all intent and purposes you don’t want to use Rackspace for VMs below 2GB and that will not need swap.

Another one…

Digital Ocean and Vultr are fairly affordable, but for the most part (so far) I have found them stable and support responsive.

Digital Ocean was somewhat unstable at the beginning, but they have gotten their act together.
