2017 - Comparison of VPS Hosting Prices

After checking prices for cloud server at the end of 2016, I thought it was again a good idea to update the price coparison table. Thankfully the job was not that hard thanks to the open source community, which had already done the comparison.

Deffinitely there are some changes, with storage increasing.

In any case, I did tried Scaleway this year. And found it a bit lacking of features compared to DigitalOcean - backups, domain management. Some of the other features do exist, but you pay extra which causes the overall value to increase.
