Technology | 28 March 2021 4:06:25 by Aditya Y Pradhana

Recently i'm interested in tagline "World Fastest Cloud". Yeah maybe, it's UpCloud claim. I'm curious about that so i want try to use its service.

I register new account on UpCloud but its required to use credit card for verification, they will take charge $1 from our credit card then refund it into your account. If you do not mind please register from my referal link here or https://upcloud.com/signup/?promo=466K69 you will receive $25 to your UpCloud account.

UpCloud will give free trial just for 3 days only, also we just only can deploy small server for trial account (1GB memory 1 CPU and 25GB Storage). If you wan't to deploy higher server you need to add $10 to your account.

Ok, let's take a look i will try $20 server with 4GB memory 2CPU and 80GB Storage it's equal to my other server on Vultr. In your account dashboard click on Servers menu then click + Deploy Server button.
