If you are a tech savy person then go with any of the OVH brand , if not then skip all the OVH brands since OVH do not offer any support and hence they are so cheap.

We can offer you a managed solution for the PHP website and thats too with 1 Gbps dedicated port with 100 TB monthly bandwidth.

OVH - Good features and pricing but sometimes it has some downtimes for months, not like 99,99% uptime as they offered
Scaleway - They have BareMetal servers available with good price and the network is pretty good but ddos protection is a thing to consider if you decide to choose this provider.
Kimsufi - I think it has same feature because it is a branch of OVH.
Online.net - Good price, I wanted to use a dedicated server there but they only accept credit, I don't know anyone has same this problem with me.
Hetzner - the speed is average in US, load fine in EU but it can be improved more if you use a CDN.
Soyoustart - have more reviews here https://forumweb.hosting/14618-soyoustart-vs-ovh-for-dedicated-server.html
Linode - Good price and features, but with pricing $80/mo I would choose a dedicated server from OVH or Scaleway, instead of using VPS there. And there are many reviews about these providers on this thread https://forumweb.hosting/13126-vultr-vs-ovh-vs-ramnode-vs-linode-vs-digitalocean.html

Great information fwh.

I'll just add that I think the main difference between OVH and Kimsufi is OVH use better hardware and the network bandwidth speeds are better, plus OVH offer much larger SSD drives.

No it is not great info, just basic info under a view of an user (me) :D because I am just person who buying web hosting packages to host websites.
It is better if we have reviews from hosting providers who used or using these providers and giving reviews on pricing, uptime, benchmarks..etc.

I'd rather read what you put which gave me a better idea of which provider I would prefer to use (if I'd never heard/used any of them),..
You are very smart in this case, it is a way for hosting provider improve their services by hearing reviews from their customers.

than reading a comment from someone who is lazy and only says "try them all" /10char literally! ;)
Some providers always like users using this way, because it is a great advice to have many customers for them :D

I have not used all of them, but I do like OVH & Linode.
I would like to know reasons why you like OVH & Linode

If i go with kimsufi without caring about their support, their specs are good enough?

The only trouble with Hetzner is everything is done via email. I have a big enough job managing all my email as it is and if there are any issues with a server with them, then that just adds to the workload because of all the extra emails that have to be tracked. I prefer to use ticket history and would not use any provider who offers email only support. Tickets is best to keep track of history. That said, I know a few who aren't bothered by the email thing.

I like OVH setup, and DDoS protection is included.

Linode offers fast speed in many different locations. The only trouble I found with Linode, Vultr and Linode are the DDoS protection is not that good. So if you are likely to be attacked due to the kind of website you host, then you might want to opt for OVH VPS over the others. Otherwise, you can probably get better speeds and will receive far better support from the others. You have to weight up the pros and cons and decide which one(s) are best for your requirements.

Yes, I can understand this! ) Bit i think this is individual, and most of hetzner customers is okay with this :)

Any of the OVH brands is a solid choice depending on your budget and desired hardware features.
When it comes down to Hetzner their network is good, however their international bandwitdh is not that great compared to some other IaaS providers.

For your website and budget, its better to buy a dedicated server instead of these cloud vpses.

Some tips while choosing servers:

As your websites are PHP based, depending on type of scripts and executions they may need cpu or does not need much. Usually CPU load should not be more.

You need to check for the RAM, SSD, Network IN, Network OUT speeds. Raids are important too.

Also find out you traffic stats and see from where more users are locating to the website.

If you do not wish to use CDN, then choosing your server location nearer to your most traffic will improve things.

Also, small dedicated server should be fine for you, as you are saying that currently VPS is handling it.

You should benchmark your current VPS and see how much more cofiguration or better config on hardware end will meet the needs and decide on your new server.

Do not spend too much on server unless you know that you will use / need high configuration. I assume you are technically knowledged to manage vps or have team handling it.

CPU cores and speeds will be help , if you use control panel softwares or scripts and programs that need cpu constantly. Otherwise low end cpu speeds can handle large sites without much issues if properly configured and control panel is not used.

Hope it helps you, @virtubox posted some benchmarks for ovh and other providers on this forum, may be you can check his threads once to see those. Thanks.
