Providers who do not charge premium for SSD/NVMe
NVMe and especially SSD is not that much of a premium over HDD anymore. Yet a lot of dedi providers still try charge a big premium for that. I am talking 512Mb x2. 1TB SSD is still a bit more expensive but that is rapidly changing as well. Pretty soon NVMe will be parity with SSD but I don't necessarily need NVMe if the motherboard doesn't support it.
I am looking for someone who is not trying to charge more or maybe a few extra dollars a month at most. Also needs to be a fairly big and established player with a good support track record and the bandwidth to avoid constant DDoS.
