As a SkySilk member, you likely noticed that both basic and standard VPS plans became unavailable early in the new year. After the addition of our new payment system, we were able to successfully remove a roadblock for many looking for cloud hosting on SkySilk. Because of this, we quickly sold out of our basic and standard plans. Alas, this has changed as our highly-requested Standard VPS is back in stock and our 2019 cloud hosting deal is still in full swing.
Standard VPS Hosting is Back
As aforementioned, we saw an accelerated start to 2019. Given it’s around the time of year many developers, businesses, and cloud hobbyists begin to google “best cloud hosting providers in 2019” so an influx is typically expected. However, our $1 basic plans and $2 standard plans went like hot cakes. And we mean, most-popular-bakery-in-New-York-City-fast.
Because of this, we chose to expand our infrastructure in our Los Angeles data center location. And we’re happy to announce that deployments of Standard VPS plans are back once again available.

In conjunction with our new payment system and Standard VPS plan expansions, we also took the opportunity to offer a 2019 VPS hosting deal directed at our Standard and Premium offerings.

Choosing the best cloud hosting provider in 2019 for you
Look, we understand that there is a whole sea of options out there when it comes to cloud hosting. Not to mention with each platform having its own set of specs, locations, etc. And with this expansion of our Standard VPS plans, there is one major takeaway we’d like to express to all of our users.
We are listening to you. We love your input and suggestions and always take them to heart when discussing our next steps. Whether it’s communication through our Discord server, Community forums, or even our support channels, we always make an effort to implement exactly what our users want.
In this case, that want (or perhaps even need), was to bring back our Standard offerings as soon as possible. So that became our main focus. Our users will always be our main focus as our plan is to provide a platform for you and make that as accessible to everyone as possible.
