NexusBytes (Uncle Bob) review after ~1 year

I joined the NexusBytes ( @seriesn ) family via "Thursday Mega Deals". Being an ardent fan of Intel gold processors, I was indecisive about Ryzen. However, "Thursday Mega Deals" used to be very appealing. So, I decided to start with the smaller plan (I think it was $2.5 or $3/ month). Within a week, I fell in love with Ryzen and got the best deal: 4 core/ 4gb RAM/ 40gb NVME storage/ 4TB bandwidth for just $72/year. I call it a kind of lottery.

In one year, I asked NB to migrate my VPS 3 times: Germany to LA, LA to NY, and NY to Germany. Despite I got this VPS via deal, the NB team always understood my requirements and helped me with the migration. I would say they go the extra mile to keep even old family members happy.
Overall, I would rate their support 5/5 as their response time is <20 minutes and they look into all the issues you raise despite they offer unmanaged services.

I do not have to mention the performance of the VPS. Most of the LET users know NB nodes are never over-crowded and you get an extremely fast VPS. E.g. if I disable ads on my webpages, it takes <1.5s to open in the US/Europe/India. My server location is Germany and here is the latest benchmark report:

I use HetrixTools to monitor uptime and it is ~100%. The VPS goes down only when I do not like 100% uptime and start playing with some installations

For me, NexusBytes is a top-notch VPS provider. Once you join the family, the NB team will do their best to keep you happy and satisfied.
Thank you NexusBytes!!!
