    Been a user with them for 2 days now...
    Some things I can say:

    - Pretty Cheap for a VPS
    - Unlimited Bandwidth is Awesome
    - Block Storage is SUPER cheap, $5 for 1TB!
    - Support is Helpful and Quick

    Not sure though about their DDOS protection.

    Their DDOS protection in the past has been very good, though haven't experienced it myself yet just from other users reports. FYI, DDOS filtered/protected IPs are an additional US$3/month charge from regular IPs.

    I have been using BuyVM for 8+ yrs even before Centmin Mod's forum came into existence. And used it for DirectAdmin install guide I wrote on my server control panel review site at https://servermanager.guide/162/how-to-install-directadmin-control-panel-on-centos-7/. Also used BuyVM for early centminmod.com load balanced clusered VPS for US West Coast region origin servers with 512MB VPS and CentOS 6 before I upgraded VPS hosts for 1+ GB CentOS 7 VPS origins.

    One thing is BuyVM Slice KVM use raid 1 for storage so you better have a remote/external backup in place. Their new Ryzen 3900X based Slice KVM are way faster. I just use their BuyVM old yearly KVM VPS with DDOS protection so I have setup gre tunnels to DDOS protect remote VPS servers so that all traffic passes through BuyVM VPS before hitting the remote servers and also use BuyVM VPS DDOS protected VPS to setup HTTP proxies to protect Xenforo proxy image/link IP leakage :)

    BuyVM has US West Coast VPS which is more in middle between Asia and Europe and good for USA while OVH public cloud didn't have a cheap US West Coast VPS location :)
