There’s a lot of VPS service providers for example DigitalOcean, Linode, GoDaddy, HostGator. So you have too many options but don’t know which one is the right one. You can use this great tool to help you decide.

Unixbench is a free tool for benchmarking the CentOS and Debian VPS.

The final score is not only the overall score of hardware performance tests (RAM, CPU) but depends also on the system settings of the installed OS.
