Updated to CentOS 8 running DirectAdmin. Pages load very slowly, so I re-ran the benchmark. I would have expected better performance with the same stats.

These are the benchmark results for BuyVM's Slice 1024 KVM VPS.

It was advertised as having only 1/4 of a CPU core 'fair-share' on their WebHostingTalk post but listed as 1 CPU core on their website. This VPS costs USD$3.50/mo and it comes with free DirectAdmin and Blesta billing software licenses which is just unbelievable.
