hetzner clud vps review

Hetzner Cloud VPS hosting offers the CX21 plan, which has the following specifications:

  • Price: €5.35 ($5.83) per month
  • Number of CPU cores: 2
  • Memory: 4 GB
  • Disk space: 40 GB NVMe SSD
  • CPU type: Intel
  • CPU details: Frequency: 2.3 GHz, Cache size: 16.4 MB, Hyperthreading ON: No
  • Operating system: Any, But I run an Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Data transfer: 20000 GB
    Network speed: 10 Gbit

Extra free features:
DDoS protection
Firewalls: You can create firewalls to sit before your VPS instance and block unwanted traffic without stressing your resources.

According to some Benchmarks, the CX21 plan has an average value. But according to my personal experience, the CX21 plan has been great, and compared to other providers, I give it a grade of for web performance, C for CPU performance, A for stability, A for disk performance, and B for network performance. I’ve been using it for years, alongside Google Compute, Digital Ocean, Vultr and Linode. None of these are better than Hetzner, so I ditch them all, except Google. They all provide similar performance for similar rigs. In the price segment, Hetzner beats them all.
So, there you go Hetzner, a free marketing from myself.

In summary, the CX21 plan offers decent performance at an affordable price. I hope this helps. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
