But VPS server from the CIS clearly sorted out the price for their services, where for 10 $ \ months get just 512MB of RAM and 10 GB of disk space. Secondly almost do not have any documentation and the support. And you can continue this list for a long time but why when you can buy VPS on AWS or Digital Ocean
