VPS hosting: 1-Core, 512MB RAM, 10GB, 1Gbps - $20 $10 per year at DediPath
We haven’t tested this web hosting service from US-based DediPath, but the company offers one of the cheapest VPS hosting plans we’ve ever seen. For the best price, use the coupon code Halloween5020.

VPS hosting is one of the fastest growing web hosting categories, probably due to the increasing number of tinkerers, coders and developers who want to get their hands dirty with containers and virtual machines.

We’ve managed to track down what looks like an unbeatable offer from US-based web hosting company DediPath at $10 per year recurring (yes, recurring). That’s less than a pair of Starbucks Venti Pumpkin Spice Lattes.

You can use the coupon code Halloween5020 to slash the price of all the firm's VPS plans, though. The cheapest includes one core of an Intel Xeon E5-2660 processor, 512MB RAM, 10GB SSD space, one IPv4 address (extra IPs cost $24 each) and 1Gbps uplink connection (unmetered), with servers available in Los Angeles, New Jersey, Las Vegas and Jacksonville.

All packages use OpenVZ, an open source version of Virtuozzo, a container-based virtualization solution for Linux (CentOS by default with Debian and Ubuntu also available as options).

DediPath also provides a rather impressive list of support features, including 99.99% guaranteed uptime, full root access, plus 24x7x365 pre-sales and technical support.

VPS (short for virtual private servers) hosting is a step up from the usual shared hosting packages and comes as a bare system, without the likes of cPanel or Plesk. You can use a VPS to run anything from a personal cloud storage to a VPN service, although it is not as simple as point and click.
