The biggest difference would be that Basic plans do not have Backups or Snapshots. For this reason, Basic VPS plans are recommended only for cases where you need to test or to host data you don't mind losing. IPv4 Addresses are NOT included with Basic VPS plans. Basic VPS plans also do not earn any SkyPoints. Standard VPS plans have all of the expected functionality needed for a simple production environment, including Backups, Snapshots, and an IPv4 address included by default. Standard VPS plans also earn 1x SkyPoints based on their monthly costs, allowing you to participate in and redeem SkySilk Rewards. Premium VPS plans feature blazing-fast NVMe SSD drives, plus the ability to choose between Intel and AMD hardware. Backups and Snapshots are not only included but automatically toggled on for weekly backups. Premium VPS Plans also earn 10X SkyPoints for a way to save and ultimately redeem SkyPoint even faster.
