Advice on best hosted, unmanaged, VPS

I'm looking for advice on the best hosted VPS service.  I don't have need for a tremendous amount of traffic, at the moment, or even in the foreseeable future.  I have checked out a lot of sites giving advice on the internet, but I wanted to get first hand knowledge from someone who might be using such a service.

Currently, I'm leaning towards GoDaddy's unmanaged VPS (2 vCPU) plan.  I have seen HostGator, Hostinger, and A2 A2 Hosting's offerings, as well.

What are your VPS requirements, OS, resources?

You would balance the costs of resources, whether your VPS is enjoys redundancy within the fabric.

If using Linux, what resources do you need, do you need on-demand type of computing resources. Or whatever it does it uses what it is allocated and perform the task as long as it takes.
Or this is your foray at remote monitoring of your primary systems, functions?

https://www.kimsufi.com/us/en/servers.xml is always the pricing to beat.

These are physical, dedicated servers, which will run circles around VPS slices for $6/month USD.

If you require more IPs you bump up to SoYouStart (16x IPs) or OVH (256 IPs).

KimSufi/SoYouStart/OVH are all imprints/brands of same company.

I normally use OVH, as I host many LXD containers/machine with each having their own unique IP.

And KimSufi/SoYouStart I've used several times when I had a new project which required a machine spinup in 120secs + OVH had zero stock on required machine, then when OVH machine inventory provided required machines, I'd just migrate LXD containers over to an OVH machine.

OVH infrastructure + pricing is pretty much unbeatable.
