Cheapest VPS in South Africa

What company provides the cheapest VPS in South Africa.

These days we all need the cloud (also known as computers that you don't own physically) to host our websites, API's, hold our (or customer) data and run applications.

Recently I needed an elasticsearch application set up to make monitoring and analysing my API gateway easier. I tried to install that on my 1Gb VPS and it complained. Thanks JVM:


There is insufficient memory for the Java Runtime Environment to continue

So I went looking for a cheap Virtual Private Server that is on the Linux platform and based in South Africa (because my clients are in South Africa and latecy will be faster 20 milliseconds as opposed to 200ms when the server is in europe).

I have used both domains.co.za and cloudafrica.net, as they were the cheapest options I had found.

Any extra included services like backup are disregarded. Services that only provide HDD (hard drives and not Solid state drives - SSD's) like afrihost are excluded.

I am going to do a bit of research to try and find a cheaper deal for a virtual private server in South Africa, my finds are below:
